Cab Calloway Stands In For The Moon or The Hexorcism of Noxon D Awful

Reed termed this work, which he considered his most experimental “writing” (quote marks are his), to be a “crude, primitive fetish,” a psychic “fix.” It was published by Bamberger Books in 1986, years after it first appeared, in 1970, as D HEXORCISM OF NOXON D AWFUL in Amistad I, edited by John A. Williams and Charles F. Harris. It also appeared in his first anthology, 19 NECROMANCERS FROM NOW. Set in the USA of 2000, in a grandiose medicine show or melodramatic style it introduces itself:
