There were about half a dozen volumes published in the late forties, early
fifties. Most of them were published twice, at that. "Not Too Narrow, Not
Too Deep" is the only one I know was reprinted later on. Not quite sure
that that one's hardboiled, though. (Didn't care for it, didn't keep it.)

I'm kinda wondering about "Sail", the one story I've read was from 1936,
and I thought that Sale was mainly active in the 40's? I'm not too sure
about this, you understand.

Something. Definitely something!
