Comment: GCD says the first story is Matt Baker but it doesn't look it to my eye. Terrible printing in the book doesn't help it at all.

Comment: I share your opinion, Yoc. The new Matt Baker checklist by JVJ (in "Matt Baker, the Art of Glamour") has it as question-marked Baker. There are some Bakerisms here, but it hasn't got an overall Baker feel to it...
