I just realized I didn't send out birthday wishes on 7 January, so here they are. It was eight years earlier, in 1997, when RARA-AVIS was created. Since then, more than 30,000 messages have gone out on the list to several hundred people, some who've been on the list since the first week. The archives form what must be the largest body of fact and opinion about hardboiled and noir writing anywhere on the Internet.

Happy Birthday, Bill! Thanks for keeping this list alive for so long! It's been a blast!
