  1. A genuinely nice guy, and a talented writer and editor.

    I think I've asked before, but did you sell him anything as SHAYNE?

  2. My only submission to SHAYNE was to the editor who preceded Larry Shaw. I've forgotten who that was. Anyway, Shaw is the one who read the story. I got a very nice letter from him, asking me to change a couple of thing and saying he'd buy the story if I did. So I did. When I returned the story, Fritch was the editor. I got a nice letter from him, too, but he said he wasn't bound by anything Shaw had said and that he wouldn't be buying the story. So I gave it up.

  3. Wow. Well, I hope you didn't actually toss the story...sounds like it was pretty clearly on the verge of sale twice.

  4. I sent it to Joe Lansdale, and it was published as a collaboration in a Canadian magazine. And reprinted in something like "The Worst of Lansdale."

  6. That's it. I'd forgotten the name of the story!
