RE: RARA-AVIS: On Fawcett Gold Medal

Actually, for this list that note should read "Not quite hardboiled, perhaps..." which leaves open the question of what could be hardboiled romance--Hammett's WOMAN IN THE DARK? Perhaps the novella anthology I'm reading for review, WAIT UNTIL DARK (Karen Robards's lead-off story is pretty close to HB in its events, but the protag is pure romance-fiction spunky/put-upon...a good story flawed by Robards [stereotypically femininely?] not wanting to take her own story completely seriously).

Not quite fictionmags, but an interesting take, I think. Somewhat reminiscent of the Canadian documentary FORBIDDEN LOVE.
