Two decades ago, CRIB DEATH & OTHER BEDTIME STORIES introduced the fiction of Clifford Meth to an audience that has been growing ever since. It was also Aardwolf Publishing's first foray into trade paperbacks. 

With a breathtaking painted cover by comics' sensation Joseph Michael Linsner, CRIB DEATH & OTHER BEDTIME STORIES was illustrated by such Silver Age sensations as Dave "X-Men" Cockrum and Marie Severin. The Comic Buyer's Guide hailed Meth's "fine-tuned comic-book sensibility" and noted "Meth tells these stories with a vividness akin to the house of Gaines" adding that the story "The Asshole Syndrome" was "one of the funniest horror stories we've ever read." Two stories in this collection were listed the following year in The Year’s Best Fantasy & Horror Anthology (St. Martin’s Press, 1996).

This digital edition features a new cover by comics legend GENE COLAN (Tomb of Dracula). For a measly four bucks, you can't go wrong. And, as with everything Aardwolf offers, there's a money-back if not delighted guaranteed.

Risks and challenges

No risks. The book was written 20 years ago. The time has come to make it digital and available to a mass audience.
