I'm finally catching up with the pile of unread e-mail. I was
that the paperback edition of Shaw's THO is abridged (I've
this edition). Since the publishers state that it's an
republication, etc., I wonder if we are talking about the
collection. What's in this paperback? I find it hard to
Rosaire's contribution would be left out -it's a great story.
there were some copyright problems due to Black Mask changing
authors changing agents, and so on? I recall reading that Shaw
a character with very strong likes and dislikes, and that as a
and agent he got into a lot of fights with writers. I find it
that he left out Black Mask mainstays like Frederick Nebel and
John Daly when compiling the omnibus. Maybe in retrospect he
they were shitty writers.
In any case, we should probably take this historical
e-mail in order not to interfere with the current discussion
