RARA-AVIS: Ross MacDonald's antho: Ty

Well, as Luca's TOC posting indicates, it's an unusually hefty anthology full of memorable stuff, with nothing I'd be ashamed to consider for such a book. Highsmith's "The Terrapin" is one of my favorite shorter works by her, for example...magnificently disturbing. Almost bought a copy myself at a secondhand store the other month, but it was battered and $10 plus, so decided to allow my memory of reading it twenty-some years ago suffice for now.

-----Original Message----- From: Andrew Albert J. Ty Thanks as well for your recommendation. We're both on Horror-L, are we not? Anyway, I'd also like to say that though I've only read The Zebra Striped-Hearse and a Lew Archer short fiction collection, Ross McDonald is special to me, because he was the first hard-boiled writer I ever read.
