THE BLACK LIZARD ANTHOLOGY OF CRIME FICTION, ed. by Edward
Kind of a hit or miss affair, I thought, but worth getting
for Pronzini's "A Cold, Foggy Day"; Whittington's "Swamp
Search"; Gault's very fine "Take Care of Yourself", the first
Joe Puma story I've read; Robert Edmond Alter's "A Killer in
the Dark"; and Joe Gores absolutely superb "The Second
Coming", which I'm pretty sure I read in another anthology --
perhaps THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF PULP FICTION? Somebody here
speculated that Gores real talent may be in the short story
-- I haven't read enough of his books to really say yea or nay, but this is certainly better than the two novels of his I've read.
