    Your mystery stories always tie me up, bolt me down, and keep me riveted. While extremely pleased to see your work continues to be reprinted in some “Best American…” series, I am not at all surprised. Mostly because you and your work are in my “Best American…” whatever series in my own home library. Keep on keepin’ on!
