RARA-AVIS: Dorothy B. Hughes

Thanks to everyone who had something to say about Dorothy B. Hughes. She's one of the few named as a possibly hardboiled woman writer from the old days, and it was interesting to see the comments on her work. Was she or wasn't she? The answer, it seems: not always, but when she wanted to be.

Don't forget this month is Howard Browne month. Look for his Paul Pine books, or THIN AIR, or anything else. If you haven't read any Paul Pine books (HALO IN BLOOD, HALO FOR SATAN, HALO IN BRASS, THE TASTE OF ASHES), you're in for a treat, especially if you like Chandler's style.

"A Brief Memoir" can be found on Dennis McMillan's web site:


I won't be able to read anything by Browne for another week or so, but everyone else should go ahead if they can. Or just start talking.
