This Russian omnibus contains Soft Touch, The Drowner, and The End of the Night. Some sources say it also includes Cape Fear. I don’t read Russian, so I don’t know.

  • Why is it called Next Tiger? Does a tiger appear in any of those stories?
  • “That’s a mighty big gun, sir.” “Why, thanks for noticing, ma’am.”
  • Why is the tiger mimicking the man shooting the gun?
  • “I would wade out of the ocean for a man in a cellophane shirt”.
  • Why is the tiger sticking out his tongue?
  • “Just tell me one more time that I look like I’m twelve years old. Just one more time.”
  • Why is the tiger’s shadow that of a man?
  • Nice suspenders. I mean braces. I know that it’s the same thing to a Brit, but stylish Americans know the difference.
