Stories and early novels by Raymond Chandler( Book )

17 editions published between 1939 and 2014 in English and held by 2,128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume includes 13 of the stories written by American novelist and screenwriter Raymond Chandler (1888-1959), that were not included in any of his full-length novels. Typically, his short stories chronicle the cases of Philip Marlowe and other down-on-their-luck private detectives or Good Samaritans. These stories reflect how Chandler adapted the violent conventions of the pulp magazines - with their brisk exposition and rapid-fire dialog - to his own emerging vision of 20th-century America. This work also contains a newly researched chronology of Chandler's life, explanatory notes, and an essay on the texts

104 editions published between 1964 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was in the pulp detective magazines of the 1930s that Raymond Chandler's definitive take on the hard-boiled detective story first appeared. Here then, from the well-thumbed pages of 'Black Mask' and 'Dime Detective Magazine', are eight of his finest stories including 'The Man Who Liked Dogs', 'The Lady in the Lake' and 'Bay City Blues'. Sharper than a hoodlum's switchblade, more exciting than an unexpected red-head and stronger than a double shot of whisky, they are packed full of the punchy poetry and laconic wit that makes Chandler the undisputed master of his genre
