Further Information
Raymond Chandler is regarded by most as one of America's finest mystery writer. A reputation richly deserved despite the meagre output of only seven novels . There are acres of print which go into far greater depth than we are able to  here. Suffice is to say that Raymond Chandler and his character, Philip Marlowe, remain amongst the most important names in the hard boiled genre. Most of the short stories made their appearance first in the legendary pulp magazines such as Black Mask. The US editions precede except for The Little Sister, The Long Goodbye and Playback.
