RARA-AVIS: RIP Joseph Hansen

From: JIM DOHERTY ( jimdohertyjr@yahoo.com)

I just heard that Joseph Hansen passed away.

Very few people since Hammett and Chandler and have brought something truly new to the hard-boiled PI story, but Hansen is certainly one of those few.

His novels and stories about gay insurance detective Dave Brandstetter were praised for being ground-breaking, but, aside from that, they were just damned good PI stories. Well-written, well-characterized, well-plotted.

He'll be missed.
