While I agree that most of your missing nominees are worthy, especially
Himes, do you really think Timothy Harris should be included? I read
the two Kyd books and enjoyed them very much, especially Goodbye and
Goodnight, but top 25 material? I don't think so. Did he write some
other hardboiled book I'm unaware of? His druggy novel and movie
adaptations don't really qualify.
