Question Anyone seen Cornell Woolrich?

I'm a major fan of Woolrich's work, but I can't track down any of his books, particularly "Night Has a Thousand Eyes" and his "Black" series. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Recommendations of similar authors/books also gladly accepted.

I love his work and have read almost everything by him, in paper and in hardcover.

Don't forget his other two names:

William Irish, George Hopley.


A great mystery writer.

Recommendations: I'm particularly fond of David Goodis. I've assembled a number of his books for MobileRead.

They publish most of his stuff under his real name nowadays. But it's useful to know his pseudonyms if you're looking for used books.
What I really would like to see is the movie version of The Night Has a Thousand Eyes with Edward G Robinson.

I've only read 13 of his short stories and the novel "Fright".
I had totally forgotten his pen names. Many thanks!
I will definately check out Mr. Goodis' work. I appreciate the recommendation.

I'm a big fan too, so I'm keeping a close eye on this thread.

I do remember that his books were turned into ebooks a few years ago. Try fictionwise.com.

Just do some googling.
