In his book of memoirs, _The Pulp Jungle_, Frank Gruber says that Dent
(or was it Sale?) was a real asshole. He also says something very funny
and very unpleasant about Chandler, but I can't recall what it is. By
the way, somebody should reprint Gruber's book -- it's a spontaneous and
uninhibited first-hand account of the glorious (?) days of the pulps, to
which he contributed enormous piles of stuff. His reminiscence of Max
Brand is worth the price of a drink (actually, of a full bottle).
