The Black Lizard Anthology of Crime Fiction

The Black Lizard Anthology of Crime Fiction - Ed Gorman, Loren D. Estleman, Bill Pronzini, Harry Whittington, William Campbell Gault, Robert J. Randisi, John Lutz, Jim Thompson, Harlan Ellison, Dennis Lynds, Max Allan Collins, Barbara Beman, Joe L. Hensley, James Reasoner, Robert Edmond Alter, Michael Seidman, Clark As is true of just about every short story collection, this is uneven. I would have given it 2 stars except for the amusing surprise of finding Harlan Ellison in a noir crime collection instead of his usual home in speculative fiction.
