Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Why is the doctor so disturbed by the mysterious brown substance under Jonathan Hoag's fingernails? Could it really be the dried human blood it so closely resembles?

What does Hoag do during the daylight hours? And what is the brutal Brotherhood of the Birds?

THE UNPLEASANT PROFESSION OF JONATHAN HOAG is a masterpiece of the macabre, accompanied here by five more superb, examples of the art of Robert A. Heinlein, grand master of science fiction.
