Dashiell Hammett Short Stories Discovered

Dashiell Hammett mostly invented the hard boiled detective story. I like Hammett because he had this thing where every story had one perfect sentence. If you search through you can usually find it. It is a sentence that blows you away. In his novels, you can find them scattered about. I read fast, sometimes skimming entire pages, but with Hammett, I am forced to slow down, because I don’t want to miss these little jewels.

I am interested in reading these stories and might even subscribe to “The Strand” where they will appear, just to get to read them.

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
