By contrast, I have read every Willeford book the same day I got it. This guy must have been the most compelling writer in the entire genre. Nobody writes like him.



Willeford is (was) a hoot!!!  I find his plots to be so out there and
inconceivable, but at the same time, he pulls them off with great mastery.
Wild Wives was the first thing I read of him, and it was so nuts...I'd dare
say that he was parodying the genre, but so what.
