"I wonder what Hunt found objectionable about the stories in TSAM. Those were the stories Chandler regarded as largely NON-canniblized. Aside from the short casino scene in "Finger Man," which was expanded in THE BIG SLEEP, there were no real lifts in any of the TSAM entries that I can recall."

Although Chandler discusses TSAM, he notes at the beginning of the letter that Hunt's objection was to his story In Joseph Shaw's Hardboiled Omnibus, a cannibalized story that Chandler tried to get replaced after having signed a blanket release.
