Many thanks to everyone who provided information on Charyn. It will eventually be put to good use.

Crime Factory will attempt to address all types of crime fiction including true crime and there will be at least one hardboiled article per issue. The first issue is out in Feb 2001 and is free so if you would like to receive a copy just let me have your postal details. Alternatively go to the links section at http://members.optusnet.com.au/~honey007 and look for crime factory. This probably won't be up for a couple of days though. I will be replying to those of you who have asked about contributor guidelines. David

> Michael Dirda:
> Obviously the three you suggest. You might add Jim
> Thompson (The Killer INside Me), David Goodis, Paul Cain
> (Fast ONe), Edward Anderson (Thieves Like Us), Cornell
> Woolrich (The Bride Wore Black), Charles Willeford (Miami
> Blues), Richard Stark (The Hunter), George V. Higgins (The
> Friends of Eddie Coyle), Elmore Leonard (52-PIck up). For
> the Black Mask School of the 1920s, there are several
> anthologies around, edited by Herbertg Ruhm, Ron Goulart
> and Joseph T. Shaw. About 10 years ago Black LIzard
> Books--a paperback line--republsihed a good many classic
> pulp novels and Robert Polito recently edited a LIbary of
> America volume devoted to the genre. This seems somehow
> slightly wrong, but there you are.
