James M. Cain Career in C Major and Other Fiction Introduction Was the Tough Guy Really a Humorist at Heart Probably no one was more surprised at the worldwide reaction to The Postman Always Rings Twice when it was published in 1934 than its author, James M.

The Damned Thing by Ambrose Bierce I. One Does Not Always Eat What is on the Table By the light of a tallow candle which had been placed on one end of a rough table a man was reading something written in a book. It was an old legible, for the man sometimes held the page close to the flame of the candle to get a stronger light on it. The shadow of the book would then throw into obscurity a half of the moon, darkening a number of faces and figures for besides the reader, eight other men were ...

PROLOGUE Ben Shapiros flying was sloppy. Downright dangerous. Flying his high-performance sailplane was instinctive, a twenty-first-century remnant of seat-of-the-pants aviation.

Deservedly, for Invisible Man is a memorable work yet in a way ironically, for the novels immediate success and the elevation of the author to the public role of spokesman-for-hvi people would seem to have precluded subsequent work of equal ambition and risk. Of the writers in this volume, only two or three have enjoyed the early success that Ellison has ...
