     Does anybody know if JohnD did in fact touch up his novels when they were being reissued? I don't have the original issue of this novel to compare.

    --Since he "modernized" his short stories for their republication in his collections, I suspect it's a good bet that he tended to give the novels a once-over before republication as well.

    Almost a pity, Brian, that my favorite JDM wasn't among them, THE EXECUTIONERS, but as the (somewhat loose) basis of CAPE FEAR the movies (the novel's much better than either), you'll be able to find it pretty easily after you make your way through that treasure-trove.
