The Japanese printed The Good Old Stuff in two volumes, of which this is Volume 1. It contains the stories “Murder for Money”, “Death Writes the Answer”, “Miranda”, “They Let Me Live”, and “Breathe No More”. The title refers to the second story, also known as “This One Will Kill You”, which is a How To Murder Your Wife story. You can find a typically excellent Steve Scott review of the story here.

You get only one guess as to what the next post is.

A review in Japanese can be found here. Translating it using Google left me totally confused.

Milk Carton

Have you seen me? I am a Japanese paperback containing a single short story, romanized as “Kieta jigen no wa”, printed in 1971 by Kaisesha. The story is  “Ring Around the Redhead”, which originally appeared in Startling Stories in November 1948.
