> "The first thing to ask about Raymond Chandler is why his name
> lives on when those of best-selling contemporaries such as Erle
> Stanley Gardner and James M. Cain are forgotten?"
> All the reviewer had to do was stop in any bookstore. Gardner and
> Cain are still in print, and not forgotten in the least. Shoddy
> research up front always turns me off. Now Charles Williams,
> Norbert Davis, Leigh Brackett -- folks like them really have been
> forgotten. Damn shame too.
