I found this small photo of a trio of colorful puppets tucked away inside the card pocket of a copy of the 1972 hardcover edition of "Perchance to Dream," an anthology edited by Damon Knight.
The book had once been part of the collection of the Vineland Free Public Library, before behind discarded.
Editor Knight is probably best known for his 1950 short story "To Serve Man," which was adapted into a classic "Twilight Zone" episode and has been parodied in everything from "The Simpsons" to "The Naked Gun 2½."
Among the short stories included in the anthology are "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" by Ambrose Bierce (one of my favorites) and "The Circular Ruins" by Jorge Luis Borges.
But what about those puppets? Any ideas?
