Re: RARA-AVIS: you're HOW old?

Ok. I'm 60 and have been reading detective fiction for a long time. My dad was a fan and I grew up with Hammett and Chandler but when I was a teen it was Spillane. My Dad spent some time telling me why it was ok for Mike to be so hard-boiled but he never convinced me although the sex was thrilling for a young adolescent in those censored days. Chandler has been my favorite for a long time but almost anyone from the 40s and 50s will do. I do like Spencer, the Macdonalds, Sara Peretsky and many others. I have just found Wade Miller and am reminded of the 50s again.
