    Some have, the Levine stories, for example, or the ones in Tomorrow's Crimes. There was also a volume that had Ordo and another story. I have never seen a comprehensive collection. He himself said that he wrote many stories, especially in the fifties and early sixties. Perhaps he didn't care to republish apprentice work?

    By the way, Ordo is a truly great short story (although it is not a crime story). Has anyone seen the movie made from this extraordinary story?
