Re: RARA-AVIS: Hammett pulp novel

Date: 04 Feb 2000

    If not the best, certainly the originator, and the tuning fork for most of the music produced thereafter. The "Hammett was the best," "Chandler was the best," argument will rage forever, and as years go by, the nominations for best continue to roll out. Nevertheless, I'll agree that if you don't like Hammett, hardboiled probably ain't going to become your favorite thing.
