      I have never seen the stories reprinted in book form. I don't know how much interest in them there could be. The Chandler ones compiled in Killer in the Rain were very interesting, but then they were truly independent stories, not meant to be installments of a novel.

    All that said, I would be interested in scans of the Hammett installments, even if a commercial release is not profitable or reasonable.
