Excerpt from Tom McNeal's Fables

When a new book is sprung on the public it is customary for the author to write a preface, or introduction, which is supposed to serve as an excuse for the publication. Sometimes the author gets a gifted and indulgent friend to write the preface for him.

This is the reason why the preface to a book is often the best part, of the publication.

I have concluded to vary the usual program just a little. T offer this book without any excuse for its being. If the public doesn't like the book, the public doesn't have to buy it.

Books of fables are not uncommon, therefore this book is not without precedent.
