I have it, the Severn UK HC, and while it's been too long since I've read it to speak of it with any type of knowledge or familiarity, the fact that I still have it leads me to believe it must have been a worthy enough of a read to keep.

I also have THE NIGHT FLOWER by Max Brand (intro. by William F. Nolan), which is more pulpish in its hardboiled themes and (or perhaps because of that very reason) not as good as the L'Amour collection (read FLOWER a cpuple years ago, much more recently than the other).
