Critical acclaim has been unanimous m declaring Paul Metcalf a newly rediscovered genius. Volume III completes the publication of this author's collected works with rich fare.

Also included are Firebird, Golden Delicious, ... and nobody objected, Araminta and the Coyotes, Mountaineers Are Always Free!, Where Do You Put the Horse?, and The Players.
