Crippen & Landru has a Nebel Black Mask collection on its vaguely formulated schedule--no date yet.

Our Jo Gar collection (by Raoul Whitfield) will be shipped to us Monday, but we haven't put it on the web yet. Nonetheless, you can order a copy simply by contacting CrippenL@Infi.Net ($20 softcover; $45 cloth signed by the designer and editor, with an additional Whitfield story ("Scotty") in a separate pamphlet). Just sent to press is Hugh Cave's Come Into My Parlor: Tales from Detective Fiction Weekly, with a new intro by Hugh (who will be signing the limited edition). The William Campbell Gault collection, Marksman and Other Stories, ed. by Bill Pronzini, is waiting for the cover painting, then it too will be sent to the printer.
************* Thanks, Doug. A month or so ago I couldn't get a hit on the Cardigan stories at ABE, but I tried bookfinder this time and got lucky. Another book that I struck out on Abebooks on was VINNIE GOT BLOWN AWAY, but found several copies available on bookfinder.

Congratulations on putting Whitfield's Jo Gar stories out the door. You've got Paul Cain's SLAYER collection coming out too, don't you? Or is it too darned early in the morning and I'm confused?

Incidentally, I'd like to mention to everybody that I got a collection of Hugh Cave stories from Crippen and Landru and it is a VERY NICE BOOK. Nice cover, solid binding, good paper and print. My old eyes aren't what they used to be, so those things matter to me beyond the aethetic.

And has anybody read Norbert Davis's MOUSE IN THE MOUNTAIN? Is it any good?
