Night Chills is unique in that it contains a bibliography at the end. While these may not be the exact editions of the titles that Dean read at the time, I made my best guess as to the edition available at the time. (I’m still missing a few.)
Night Chills is mentioned in Dean R. Lambe’s review of The Minotaur Factor by Stewart Stern on page 72 of Richard E. Geis’ Science Fiction Review #22 (August 1977).
