On a related note, in the Fleming/Chandler discussion, Chandler says he's got his hero in a bit of a pickle because he's going to get married. Fleming asks if that means he's going to have to kill off the wife (which Fleming had already done by then to his hero's wife). Chandler said no, no, he couldn't do that. If he'd kept on writing, Linda (is it Linda?) would have been an important, continuing character.
