<<Thank you. Nice to see you're still hosting, Bill. I was happy to see Mario's still around - his was the first post I read, something about Dashiell Hammett not being the first hard-boiled writer.>>

It's nice to see you back, Geir. I think I was here from the beginning. I happened to see Bills advert in the former mystery group rec.arts.mystery, back when Usenet still had content. I think Bill saw a need for a specialized newsgroup about hardboiled fiction, which was a marginal topic of discussion in that group. He turned out to be right.

Now, what the hell did I say about Hammett? Just don't quote me...
