What better subject for my first real post of '08 than my first short story collection? OLD TIMES' SAKE, from the fine small press publisher Ramble House, gathers 16 or 17 of my stories, mostly from MIKE SHAYNE MYSTERY MAGAZINE, including my first published mystery story, "Comingor", from the August 1977 issue of MSMM. I believe it was my second published story overall, predated only by the confession story that was my first sale. As I say in my comments in the book, most of these stories were written so long ago it seems like someone else wrote them. But that means I had a good time going back over them and getting them ready to be reprinted. You can check out the book here, and while you're there look around the Ramble House website and check out the rest of their very interesting offerings.
