I guess I forgot about it. Yes, MacShane 's Chandler biography went into
paperback, but Penguin trade paperback not in mass pb, I believe. Sorry,
it was too long time ago to remember clearly. I guess I have both
editions. I think Richard Layman's Hammett biography (1981) also went into
trade pb but not into mass pb. Sorry about my previous
semi-misinformation. I have not seen the pb edition of William
Nolan's Hammett bio (1983), have you?

Maybe the Macdonald bio will be reprinted in trade paperback in a year or
two about at 15 bucks (the hardcover edition costs $32), but not in mass
pb, judging from the trend.
