Americas most popular pulp magazines published hundreds of his stories. Classic films like Hitchcocks Rear Window, Truffauts The Bride Wore Black, and Tourniers Black Alibi came chillingly to the screen from his work. And novels like Deadline at Dawn, Rendezvous in Black, and Night Has a Thousand Eyes gained him the epithet father of noir. Now with this new centenary volume of previously uncollected suspense fiction edited by Francis M. Nevins—recipient of the Edgar Allan Poe Award for criticism in the mystery field—a whole new generation of mystery readers, as well as his countless fans who have long loved his work, can thrill to the achievement of Cornell Woolrich, the writer deemed to be the Edgar Allan Poe of the twentieth century.
