The Truth Spinner, by Rhys Hughes, truth spinner

The Urbana Free Library now has one of the funniest books I've read in, well, ever: The Truth Spinner by Rhys Hughes. Each of these stories is (more or less) about Castor Jenkins, Welsh raconteur and teller of tales tall and of all heights, whose adventures strain the limits of time, space, believability, genre, and the printed page. Hughes is a prolific writer of tales--more than 600 so far--but they can be tricky to track down. Thankfully this collection puts together some of his very best all in one convenient package.
