The Empty Hours - Original Publications

As we suggested in the new podcast (here), The Empty Hours, as a collection of 'novelettes' was probably released as a way of getting out a new 87th Precinct book whilst Evan Hunter was away from home working intensely on the script to The Birds with Alfred Hitchcock, in California. 

The stories came from a couple of different sources, as outlined below:

The Empty Hours
Ed McBain's Mystery Book #1 - (October?) 1960
