Well, there are other books that didn’t inspire me with confidence but turned out OK so who’s to say? The Deleth’s one of his Solar Pons outings and made the Oriental Tales Of Terror anthology but that could well be it for the horror content. Sheckley, Porges and the staggeringly prolific Slesar are all accomplished genre hoppers, equally at home with each, so if they’re writing for something called Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine it’s a fair bet they’ll take the ‘Mystery’ bit as their guideline. Bryce Walton wrote an excellent voodoo story, The Devil Doll, for Dime Mystery which Bill Pronzini happily revived for his Tales Of The Dead monsterpiece (Book Club, 1987).
