Monkey's Got a Gun

When we weed stuff, it goes on the free book cart. When something ends up there that's interesting or readable, I snatch it up to keep or share with friends. When something ends up there that is so fucking weird I have to have it, I snatch it up to scan in and share with the internet.

Here's one of them, Triple Jeopardy, a paperback collection of a trio of Nero Wolfe mystery novellas by Rex Stout. The tag line of "A Nero Wolfe Threesome" (ah, the innocent days of 1952!) is enough to induce a chuckle, but the cover is what caught my eye.

It's a monkey. With a gun. The comedic possibilities are limitless.
