Hey Bill --

You know, I just found a flaw in Polito's SAVAGE ART (the biography of Jim Thompson). There's no bibliography of Thompson's work included. But didn't he start out writing proletarian novels that were published in hardback before he became a "paperback writer" (sorry, listening to the Beatles as I write) for Lion in the '50s?
