<<Hemingway started later than Hammett>>

I don't think this is correct.

<<and he must've read him>>


<<, so is Hemingway pulp fiction?>>

No, he never published anything in the pulps. He had a totally different sensibility, not to mention aspirations. But he could certainly be hardboiled, as in his masterly story The Killers. Not to push the point, and speaking as an avowed fan of hardboiled, adventure, and noir fiction: I don't think these genres ever produced a masterpiece comparable to Hemingway's _The Sun Also Rises_.
