Brilliant writer! Good pick. Hubbard is so under-appreciated. He's a writer whose books definitely ought to be reprinted. I think almost all of his crime and suspense novels are brilliant. A handful like A Hive of Glass and The Holm Oaks are true classics in the genre. Dancing Man is especially Gothic and creepy, but the other two are nightmarishly violent stories of people who go to extreme lengths to get what they want.

Have you seen the 1980 adaptation of Hubbard's novel HIGH TIDE (part of the British ITV network's "Armchair Thriller" series)? I think it may have been the only adaptation of his works - and no, I haven't come across it, yet.

Todd Mason

Avram Davidson, in blurbing one of his stories for F&SF, compared him to...in fact, suggested he was close to the second coming of...M. R. James. I still need to read his novels...I have one or two.

Have not see the adaptation.

Well, I have to admit I haven't reach much of M.R. James, so I shall have to rectify that omission soon!
