Re: RARA-AVIS: context

Date: 01 May 2000

    I wonder what RARA-AVIANS of 2050 will be "bothered by" in the hard boiled stuff of today. It's funny how many of us are uncomfortable with the racism and sexism we see in the old stuff, even though we glide blithely through all the killing without a blink or a qualm. I guess each generation wants to see "their" hard boiled fiction fit the accepted social views of the then current time. Ah, but murder, murder goes on forever.
