NOTES

He was the advisory editor for the "Best American Short Stories, 1955-56".

"The important thing in writing is the capacity to astonish. Not shock -- shock is a worn out word -- but astonish. The world has no grounds whatever for complacency. The Titanic couldn't sink, but it did. Where you find smugness you find something worth blasting. I want to blast it." --Terry Southern.
