For anyone who's got deep pockets, Christie's is getting
ready to auction off the Detective Fiction Library of Richard
M. Lackritz, M.D., Part II. According to the email I got, the
Lackritz collection is one of the most important of its kind
to be sold at auction in the past twenty years devoted to the
hard-boiled school of fiction and the auction includes all
major titles by Raymond Chandler, Agatha Christie, Dashiell
Hammett, Ellery Queen, and many others..
You can browse the catalog at
Their definition of hard-boiled definitely doesn't map to any
of those used here at Rara-Avis...since the author list
includes Christie, Ngaio Marsh, Dorothy L Sayers and others
who fall far afield of that adjective.
