I just picked a couple of Parker paperbacks and when I got home I found that one of them, a 1984 Dell edition of THE JUDAS GOAT, was signed (ok...initialled) by Parker himself!
I paid the princley sum of $2.50!
Looking forward to reading it and the others in the very near future.

I'd set the top 3 (as much for my own personal taste as "importance") as Leonard, Block, and Ellroy. Am I forgetting anyone? We're none of us getting any younger, are we?
Add Joe Gores and K.C. Constantine, too. Crumley is gone. Ellroy is quite a bit younger than these other guys, not yet in the category of Wise Old Master...
