Forgotten Short Stories: PRIVATE EYES ed. Mickey Spillane and Max Allan Collins
Patti Abbott asked me for some forgotten short stories this week. Private Eyes may have been the first anthology of short stories I bought outside of school. To call these stories forgotten isn't quite right. I remember many of them vividly ten years later, Kaminsky's "Snow Birds" and Ted Fitzgerald's "Nicole" especially. With more and more hardcover and trade anthologies, it's easy to forget the sheer value of this sixteen-story mass market edition.
