************ I think you're talking about that big fat book of Chandler's collected stories. Just in the last couple weeks I've noticed a huge increase in the Chandler selection at Borders bookstore. And I mean huge... It looks like almost every book is in print now and this is in addition to the collected stories and novels.

You wanna hear what I heard from the lady at the used book store? She told me that the reprint market is so big nowadays because it allows publishers to avoid the premium on a new author.
