For a very enlightening and cogent discussion of all the problems regarding this essay, there is a great article by Miranda Hickman (2003) -- she maintains
(convincingly) that Chandler rewrote his original
"Simple Art" between '44 and '46 in response to a rather truculent letter-to-the-editor from one Mr. Anthony Boucher. I have the Hickman article in pdf format if you want it.

********* Thanks to Etienne, Beth, Jim, and you, Michael, for the information on Chandler's essay. And yes! I would like a copy of the Hickman article. Send to .

I have been writing down some thoughts on the essay. I guess I'm going to have to identify which version I'm referring to and specify that.

Thanks again, miker
