    1. So I got this from inter-library loan to read one story ("Too Nice A Day To Die") but as I've previously read three other stories here, and the first chapter of Woolrich's final, unpublished novel, I figured I'd repurpose those reviews first (so my review above is for these 5 pieces and not the entirety).The "Penny-A-Worder" is a non-crime story, more in an O Henry mode (including an ironic surprise ending), a structure Woolrich uses here to sketch his personal knowledge of the realities of writ [...]

    2. Woolrich, the best. Just missing one star because this is scrappy collection and it contains non-sequential / unfinished material - more for the die-hard fans.
