Thanks for the McGinnis link. Should be handy. I have a talented painter friend who has agreed to do an oil copy of a McGinnis for me. As for McKimmey, let me quote Bill Crider from _The Big Book of Noir_: "You can hardly go wrong by picking up any of his books, but try not to miss _Squeeze Play_ and _The Long Ride_." I would add _Cornered_ to Bill's suggestions.
