       Additional Information  
      The world of one-armed private investigator Dan Fortune is filled with danger, deceit and striking contrasts. The 14 stories in Fortune's World range from the mean streets of New York City's Chelsea district, to the bleak winter world of Syracuse, New York, to sunny and sometimes violent South America, to Santa Barbara, California, where Fortune now has his office. And the contrasts are not only in the settings, for Michael Collins is aware of the inequities in modern society, and his stories are dominated by a social conscience rare in popular literature.

    Fortune's World contains all the previous uncollected Dan Fortune short stories as well as a new story written especially for this volume. The introduction is by Professor Richard Carpenter, and the book concludes with a complete checklist of Dan Fortune novels and short stories.
