It was something about Carroll John Daly publishing his short story "The False Burton Combs" in the "Black Mask" in 1922 while Hammett didn't occur in "Black Mask" till 1923. I think that was it, but I didn't check the archives. Whatever. It's just that it is so very pleasing to me and I guess a lot of people that Bill and the rest of you have managed to keep this list going through all these years. Congratulations to all of you!
