Could it have something to do with the Writers Guild? I seem to remember Westlake (from the intro to the "Payback" reprint of The Hunter, I think) saying that Stephen Frears wanted the writing credit for The Grifters to read Richard Stark, but Westlake pointed out that Stark wasn't a member of the Writers Guild.
