RE: RARA-AVIS: hammett short story question: Robison

Ed Gorman's survey NIGHTMARE TOWN is probably the most representative I've scanned (it's on the TBR pile), but THE BIG KNOCKOVER is valuable as well. Haven't picked up the ?LOC volume.

There's not so much that was published that you can't collect it all, of course. TM

-----Original Message----- From: Michael Robison [mailto:] hello,

what is the most complete book of hammet's short stories? actually, i'm most interested in the short stories before _the maltese falcon_. i've found _the big knockover_ and the library of congress's crime stories and other writings, and nightmare town, and some others listed at amazon.

i'm confused.
