RARA-AVIS: Another Chandler Question

From: Michael Robison ( miker_zspider@yahoo.com)

It WAS in THE SIMPLE ART OF MURDER, but not in the essay "The Simple Art of Murder." Another article about early pulp fiction, originally published, IIRC, in ATLANTIC MONTHLY in 1950 or thereabouts, which was subsequently used by Chandler as the intro to his short story collection is the source. He used the longer essay, which gave the collection its title, as the anchor piece.

*********** Thank you, Jim. It looks like I'm out of luck for a while. My 1977 Ballantine copy of THE SIMPLE ART OF MURDER starts with the essay. No intro. I'll keep a look out for copies with the intro.

Thanks again, miker
