Oh, there were lots of gems falling out from the pulps - just check the Steve Midnight collection by John K. Butler that came out in the late nineties. It's excellent, and I'd bet some money on Chandler being influenced by Butler. Also W.T. Ballard who made some very good Western paperbacks in the fifties. (Isn't there a collection of his Bill Lennox stories that came in Black Mask?) There are lots of gems and I won't go into mentioning all of them, but I've read enjoyable pulp stories by such total unknowns as H.H. Stinson and Richard Dermody. (Stinson is in the Black Mask group picture with Hammett and Chandler, though, so he's not exactly a total unknown.)
