I couldn't agree more; his fiction is simply wondeful, incorporating the dark poignancy of Ed Gorman without the distracting wistfulness into which he (very) occasionally lapses -- Clark's work empitomizes beautifully the naked, brutal truth of dashed dreams and conflicted lives...terrific stuff. I only wish more of it was collected. And on that theme, if it hasn't been mentioned before, he has another collection out from Five-Star entitled CROWDED LIVES. Let's hope there's a third one soon.
