<<"Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine" is a reliable source of
 good stories from tough to funny. Lots of early Block, Westlake, Willeford, Clark Howard as well as the short story specialists like Jack Ritchie Bryce Walton, and Robert Twohy (consistently excellent over a long career--anybody know anything about him)?>>

I know he was (and maybe still is) a successful screenwriter for TV and film. Thanks for reminding me of this excellent short-story writer. I recall he won some prizes for his stories, but he hasn't been properly anthologized yet. Doug?

Speaking of AHMM: tthe other day I picked up an old issue of the magazine and what do I find but a novella by our own Jim Beaver. It was a good read, too. What a small world.
