RARA-AVIS: Westlake's SF: Stephenson

From: Todd Mason ( Todd.Mason@tvguide.com)
Date: 01 Dec 2003

Also collected in Westlake's TOMORROW'S CRIMES, a decade or so back from Mysterious...which is a good thing, since the other short stories, such as the fantasy "Nackles," "The Winner" and even "The Spy in the Elevator"
(which Westlake himself tends to belittle as written to stroke the prejudices of the editors of GALAXY sf magazine) are better than ANARCHAOS, which is one of the most ridiculous novels I've read. Unless one, like Westlake, mistakes Kropotkinian or even the most militantly Bakuninist anarchists for the most insanely individualist Ayn Randians no one's ever met. TM

-----Original Message----- From: owner-rara-avis@icomm.ca [mailto: owner-rara-avis@icomm.ca]On Behalf Of Jim Stephenson I have read very little SF, but a couple of years ago I picked up
_Anarchaos_ by Curt Clark ... actually Donald E. Westlake under a pseudonym. It certainly fit into the HB milieu. The book is out of print, but reasonably easy to find on eBay, Alibris, etc. ... and cheap too!
