I am looking for a good collection of hardboiled short stories. Anyone have a fave?

Maybe a collection of Dashiell Hammet Continental Op shorts.
There are also some shorter Marlowe stories in Trouble is My Business.

I'll second the recommendation of The Mammoth Book of Private Eye Stories. Perhaps by now someone has edited a collection of stories from Black Mask magazine.

There is also the noir series-Brooklyn Noir,Havana Noir and now there is Toronto Noir. I think there is also Miami Noir.

alans, there's a London Noir volume too.

Following on from message 2, there's a several other volumes of non-Marlowe Raymond Chandler shorts that are well worth investigating called Playback, Trouble is My Business and The Simple Art of Murder.

Excellent. Good to see those exist, alans and Grammath. But isn't Playback a Marlowe novel?

Maio 10, 2008, 7:52am

Yep, Eurydice it is. Don't know how that slipped in there.

Happens to the best of us. :) I'll look out for the noir collections, when my moratorium on book-buying ends.

A moratorium on book buying? Sounds harrowing.

Maio 10, 2008, 2:30pm

Yes. It might be. But the reason may alleviate it somewhat. I just came home from a visit to Cambridge, Mass. Between fabulous used and remaindered books, and a selection of birthday gifts, I brought 45 books. Since, I've gotten sent, or bought, 9 great mysteries. I already had too many unread books. This assortment is too good to let go unread because I'm dazzled by new things I can't afford. And so, the moratorium.

Till the end of June, at least.

The Chandler book I was thinking of was Pearls are a Nuisance. I knew it began with a P.

Maio 10, 2008, 3:40pm

Grammath - thanks! It's one I'd not even heard of. (Sad admission? But true.)

Maio 10, 2008, 10:19pm

This list is great. Thanks to everyone.:)
