Dashiell Hammett was one of the most legendary crime writers of the 20th century. A unique literary publication, The Hunter and Other Stories ($25.00) includes new Hammett stories gleaned from his personal archives, screen treatments long buried in film-industry files, unpublished and rarely published fiction, and intriguing unfinished narratives. Hammett is regarded as both a pioneer and master of hard-boiled detective fiction, but these dozen and half stories that explore failed romance, courage in the face of conflict, hypocrisy, and crass opportunism show him in a different light.
Julie Rivett is Dashiell Hammett's granddaughter. She is an excellent speaker about her grandfather's work and provided her notes and editing skills for this new book.
Richard Layman is an Edgar-Award-nominated Hammett scholar.
