RARA-AVIS: James M. Cain

At http://www.mysteryfile.com/Cain/Birthday.html I've recently posted a belated birthday salute by J. Kingston Pierce to James M. Cain, author of novels such classic novels as The Postman Always Rings Twice, Double Indemnity and many others. (Cain was born on July 1st.)

As part of this tribute is a complete bibliography of Cain's novels and story collections, plus reviews of four of his books by Max Allan Collins and Bill Pronzini, nor should I forget to mention the usual abundance of cover images.

Question: Has Cain's reputation gone downhill in recent years, or is he still considered (by you) as one of the best of the hardboiled writers?
