Although I did read a few Hardy Boys books (but most prized their investigation manual), it was Encyclopedia Brown and Emil and the Detectives that started me. Then my father gave me the Complete Sherlock Holmes in two volumes. Read some Christies, but finally found my home when I read The Long Goodbye.

And Harry O. They finally put Mannix on DVD (kind of afraid to watch it, since I've gotten so used to the far denser narrative structures of much of today's best TV), when is Harry O coming?
