copy of _The Machine in Ward Eleven_ for not too much if you look
around. Those are the only easy sources I know.>>

Some time ago, I heard that there were several uncollected Willeford
stories. Does anyone have any definite information? Does Herron include
a complete list of Willeford's works?

By the way, Willeford's weird noir novel _Pick-up_ was reprinted by
Library of America in one of its noir omnibus volumes. I mention this
because it's likely that the Black Lizard reissue is out of print,
together with _Heresy_ and the rest. The Library of America collection
seems to be a good bargain and thematically sound.
