RARA-AVIS: Hammett's Lost Stories finally out; Maltese Falcon and Sam Spade book on its way

From: Vince Emery ( vince@emery.com)
Date: 01 Sep 2005

Just a note to let you know that Lost Stories by Dashiell Hammett is finally out. Otto Penzler reviewed Lost Stories in today's New York Sun: http://www.nysun.com/article/19394

The trade hardcover edition is available at independent mystery bookstores, traditional bookstores, and online booksellers. There is also a slipcased collector's edition available from my website.

If you want to pick up a copy at Bouchercon, look for the "M" Is For Mystery tables. Ed Kaufmann has both the regular edition and the collector's edition, and his regular copies are all signed by Joe Gores and myself.

Northern Californians might like to know that Joe and I will speak at the
"M" Is For Mystery store in San Mateo at 2 p.m. Saturday Sept. 24. Joe is under the deadline gun to finish his novel Glass Tiger, so he won't be making many personal appearances over the next few weeks.

I will also publish another new book of interest, Discovering The Maltese Falcon and Sam Spade, edited by Richard Layman. The Falcon book has a Sept. 7 pub date.

I expect these 2 books to be the beginning of a series of Hammett-related titles, which I have named The Ace Performer Collection, after Raymond Chandler's remark that "Hammett was the ace performer."

If any Avians have questions, I'll be glad to take a shot at answers.
