i like that idea. actually, i like the whole theme-of-month thing. although it presents focus, its not an all-exclusive discussion, leaving you out in the cold if you're not knowledgable.

but the evolution of hardboiled is definitely interesting to me. from a long ways off, its tempting to say, "first came hammett, then came chandler, and then came everybody else." but that certainly isn't the way it was.
