RARA-AVIS: Re: Masked Detectives?

In a Lonely Place and Why Not You and I are great collections of Wagner's short fiction. I loved him as the editor of Best Horror Stories because he always included stories that varied in tone and style. I still read the TB Years Best Horror edited by Stephan Jones, but the stories all seem more similar in tone and style to me than the volumes edited by Page or Wagner.
