Michael had some not very nice things to say about Ross Macdonald's post-psychoanalysis Lew Archer books. Well, on those points, we'll have to agree to disagree. I'm among those who thought they got better from The Galton Case on.

However, you add:

"Again, I know RM is beloved by some, so please accept this as *just my opinion*. Feel free to take your own shots at Chandler or Thompson or Holding or Himes, all of whom I worship in various ways."

Who's Holding? I don't know that one.


ps -- By the way, I agree with you on Chandler and Himes and the best of Thompson (although I understand there are some stinkers by him; I've only read five or six of his best known).
