RARA-AVIS: Whitfield's Green Ice and a Geoffrey Homes reprint

Having read Raoul Whitfield's excellent short story 'Mistral' in the Pronzini/Adrian anthology Hard-boiled, I bought his novel Green Ice recently. It's good stuff - a tight, fast story, with a chaotic shoot-out climax. Definitely recommended. There was some talk on this list a few months ago about a collection of his short stories that's being planned. Looking forward to that one.

On another note, Geoffrey Homes (Daniel Mainwaring)'s Build My Gallows High is going to be reprinted in Feb 2001, according to Amazon. This is, of course, the novel that the fine Jacques Tourneur film Out of the Past (why did they change the great original title?) is based on.
