"And to you, Miss O'Shaughnessy, adieu. I leave you the rara avis on the table as a little memento." -- Caspar Gutman in The Maltese Falcon
RARA-AVIS is a mailing list devoted to the discussion of hardboiled and noir writing.
The list was announced on 5 January 1997. In August 2004, it moved to Yahoo Groups. To subscribe, send a blank message to email@example.com. (Or visit http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rara-avis-l/ and follow the instructions there. But there's no need to set up a Yahoo account if you don't want to.) You will be asked to confirm that you wish to subscribe. Keep the instructions you get so you'll know how to leave, and bear the rules in mind. If you want to receive the list in a daily digest, send a blank message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Read the welcome message you'll get when you join. It's best to lurk for a few weeks to get the feel of the list before first posting, but then please say hello and introduce yourself.
If you have any trouble joining the list or with your subscription, please mail the list's owner, William Denton.
