The rumor goes that Robert B. Parker originally wrote this Spenser story for Playboy, which rejected it. "Surrogate" was published as a limited edition booklet from Lord John Press in 1982. This booklet is now a collectors' item. And Gallery reprinted it in the private eye special issue in 1982. I believe I have this issue somewhere. I think I saw this story reprinted in some anthology. I will look around. Okay, I have found it reprinted in NEW CRIME 3, edited by Maxim Jakubowsky (London Robinson, 1991).
