Got the new issue in the mail yesterday. The Ed Hoch story is another reprint (first U. S. publication, though), and next month will see the last story that Ed worked on for the magazine, completed by Jon Breen. Talk about the end of an era! Loren Estleman has a very funny Nero Wolfe pastiche, and Tom Piccirilli has a fine hardboiled story. I've made some brief comments on both at Nasty, Brutish, and Short. Lots of other good stories, too, as always.
