    Yes, and a good amount of it (THE TOTEM, short stories, etc.). What I meant to say, but phrased it poorly, is that his *other* material is more thriller than mystery (as per OP's question).

    I just finished ARIEL by Lawrence Block -- his only horror novel. I don't recommend it other than as an interesting one-off by one of the mystery genre's better writers.
