Richard, have those Whitfield stories ever been reprinted? Like you, I admire Whitfield's cool, modern style. Because Hammett was such a giant, it's easy to overlook Whitfield, who worked on the same level.

Not only could he do the ultrahardboiled thing perfectly, but he put the lyrical thing and the psychological thing (I am thinking, particularly, of the Jo Gar stories and Green Ice) just as effectively.

You are a lucky guy. But you knew that.
