RARA-AVIS: I've noticed

Mon, 26 Apr 1999 19:55:01 -0400 (EDT) this list's startling hatred of Robert Parker, and I was wondering the
roots of it... His recent works (Small Vices and Night Passage) have been
above average, and while some of his middle works did suffer, he is still
one of the best authors and developers of characters out there... I'm
curious... did the hatred stir when he finished poodle springs??? I
understand that marlowe and chandler are like Gods, but come on cut the
guy some slack... I think Spenser is the most well rounded private dick
out there and yet still is hard-boiled...
