Re: RARA-AVIS: Question about Raymond Chandler: Two Ladies in the Lake?

Date: 13 Aug 2007


Jim can give you a far more detailed account, but here's the short answer until he gets to it. The Killer in the Rain anthology is comprised of short stories that Chandler later "cannibalized," as he put it, for his novels. As he had reused the material (although greatly rewritten), Chandler did not allow the stories to be reprinted during his lifetime. Along with the story of the same title, No Crime in the Mountain and, I think, another were used for Lady in the Lake.
