We have been so busy "not flaming" each other in re
that I am not sure that anyone welcomed you to the list. You
plenty of folks who will agree with you respecting the Op
stories and more
than a couple of 87th Precinct fans as well...whether they
are hardboiled or
not probably requires a seperate thread (for the record, I
think they are
far more worthy of the term than the Vachss books or the
novels). We are only lately having our collective
respecting non-US authors.
And congratulations on your first sale.
