RARA-AVIS: Re: Mystery Monthly June 1976/ Moore

Thanks Joy, that makes my day! If you have the newspaper reporterish cover, it is the second edition with the blood on the typewriter cover. The first cover had a long cigarette ash that burned down from an ashtray into drops of blood. It proved to me the artist had read the story. When I wrote the novel I was quitting smoking and to compensate I had my first person protagonist light up every time I wanted a cigarette. As I craved a smoke every waking minute, my character became a chain-smoker.

Glad you are enjoying it.

Richard Moore
