No Doors, No Windows

by Harlan Ellison

This is a collection of stories that somewhat fit under the mystery/suspense category. Actually, I would create a subheading for many of these tales as "macho" stories. (If nothing else, Harlan Ellison exposes the futility of attempting strict categorization.) Basically, these were originally published in men's magazines in the 50's and 60's and have requisite scenes of sex and/or violence. Even so, they're all rather good, the highlights being "The Whimper of Whipped Dogs" and "Tired Old Man". There's not much else to say about it. I like Ellison enough that his works are almost always going to be recommended, but this particular volume is on my shelf.
