Re: RARA-AVIS: New Woolrich anthology

It was quite good, as most of his short-story collection tend to be...however, I'd recommend picking up a copy of NIGHTWEBS over NIGHT AND FEAR. An earlier collection, NIGHTWEBS is really the definitive selection of Woolrich reprint-shorts published thus far (perhaps someday some wise, enterprising publisher will publish a multi-volumes COMPLETE SHORT STORIES OF CORNELL WOOLRICH) and, best of all, it was recently re-released by Orion in TPB as part of their Crime Masterworks series. It's readily available (and cheap) at Amazon.UK and I've seen it here in the States at several bookstore chain, including discounted copies at Half Price Books.

After that, NIGHT AND FEAR makes a nice companion piece.

  I saw a new collection called NIGHT AND FEAR: A CENTENARY COLLECTION OF
  STORIES, by Cornell Woolrich, edited by Francis M. Nevins, in a bookstore
  tonight. It has some stories that haven't been collected or anthologized
  before. Any of you read it? Opinions?
