RARA-AVIS: Bibliographies: Raymond Chandler

Believed to be complete, aside from some anthologies. Thanks to to Douglas Greene for his help.



Chandler would often cannabilize earlier short stories for novels, and it can be a strange experience to read the short stories after the novel. He didn't allow the stories to be collected and printed in his lifetime, but they show up in Killer in the Rain.

The Big Sleep uses "The Curtain" and "Killer in the Rain." Farewell, My Lovely uses "The Man Who Liked Dogs," "Try the Girl," and "Mandarin's Jade." The Lady in the Lake uses "Bay City Blues," "The Lady in the Lake" and "No Crime in the Mountains."

Doug Greene adds re: The Simple Art of Murder: "It should be noted that the names of the protagonists in four of the stories have been changed: Mallory to Johnny Dalmas in 'Smart-Aleck Kill,' unnamed narrator to Philip Marlowe in 'Finger Man,' Carmady to Marlowe in 'Goldfish,' and Dalmas to Marlowe in 'Red Wind.'"
