And for those of us who are too stingy (or poor) to spring the bucks, may I suggest filling out one of those little "Patron Aquisition Request" forms at your local public library? I suggested _No Good from a Corpse_ to the Denver Public Library, and they bought three copies! Similarly, they took my suggestion and got Adventure House's collection of John K. Butler stories, _At the Stroke of Midnight_. And a few others.

We might get more good old HB reprinted if more of us did this, and at little cost. Which said, I *would* spring for a Norbert Davis collection -- I don't want to take my paperback of _Dead Little Rich Girl_ (aka _The Mouse in the Mountain_) out of its plastic bag.
