KIRKUS REVIEW

Fans who haven’t already overdosed on Five Star’s recent collection of Howard’s stories (Crowded Lives, p. 86) will welcome this competing volume of 12 tales (1980–94) by the perennial winner of Ellery Queen’s Readers Award. Though his heroes and heroines are invariably drawn from among life’s losers, Howard, in his brief introduction, finds them distinguished by the professional or regional or personal pride that gives them one more chance at the brass ring: the gift of surviving another day.
