Imagine my surprise to find, among comments citing Shirley Jackson, Hemingway, Melville, Bradbury and others, one commenter saying:
"Death and the Ugly Woman" by Bruce ArthursI blush. "Death and the Ugly Woman" seems to be the story I'll most be remembered by, if I'm remembered as a writer at all.
No one's ever reprinted the story, to my disappointment. It has been optioned for movie/television, though that option expired recently. I should probably either post it online or make it available as one of those short-story ebooks.
