Most of the short fiction by Woolrich I've read has been more in the horror vein than noir (the 2 collections BEYOND THE NIGHT & VAMPIRE'S HONEYMOON) but I recently picked up DARKNESS AT DAWN and another collection from Carroll & Graf at a book sale. His horror stories are excellent--weirder than his novels (which is a trick in itself) but with the same sense of doomed fate.
