The only complete collection of shorter fiction by the undisputed master of detective literature, assembled here for the first time in one volume, includes stories unavailable for decades. When Raymond Chandler turned to writing at the age of forty-five, he began by publishing in pulp magazines such as Black Mask before later writing his famous novels. In these stories Chandler honed his art and developed his uniquely vivid underworld, peopled with good cops and bad cops, informers and extortionists, lethally predatory blondes and redheads, and crime, sex, gambling and alcohol in abundance. In addition to his classic detective fiction - in which his signature atmosphere of depravity and violence swirls around cool, intuitive loners such as Philip Marlowe - Chandler turned his hand to fantasy and even a Gothic romance. This rich treasury of twenty-five stories shows him developing the laconic, understated style that would serve him so well in his later masterpieces, immersing readers in the richly realized fictional universe that has become a part of our literary landscape.… (lisätietoja)

    Raw Law: The Complete Cases of MacBride & Kennedy Volume 1: 1928-30 (tekijä: Frederick Nebel) (uncultured)
    uncultured: In the 1930’s, Frederick Nebel was just as big a draw as Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler—but because he never transitioned to novels, his works were lost to history...until Altus Press came along. And even if his prose doesn’t quite reach the heights Chandler’s does, over the course of this series starrring hard-boiled police chief MacBride, and hard-drinking newshound Kennedy, his fictional Richmond City feels every bit so real as Chandler’s Los Angeles.… (lisätietoja)

A very interesting journey, watching Chandler's prose develop from his very first story (so chockablock with twists that the formula was painfully obvious) to his last (short) date with Marlowe in "The Pencil." I enjoyed this, especially when he stuck with what he knew: gritty, hardboiled crime/noir. He has 3 main detective characters: Philip Marlowe, Ted Carmady, and John Dalmas. They each have their own distinctive personalities and styles, so much so that I was surprised to see that the stories he based [book:The Big Sleep|2052] and [book:The Long Goodbye|2054] on were not Marlowe originals, but rather featured Carmady. Same with the titular "The Lady in the Lake," originally starring Dalmas. I'm curious now to read the novels and see what differences pop up between the original shorts and the longer versions.

Chandler's wanderings weren't all high notes for me. He plays fast and loose with paranormal/supernatural in "The Bronze Door" and "Professor Bingo's Snuff," both of which were not that great, IMO. The comedy of "Pearls are a Nuisance" fell completely flat for me, and "English Summer: A Gothic Romance" lays on the goth with a thick-bladed trowel. To me, he's at his best in the world of California-set crime noir, a world he made his own right from the start. ( )

Will mess with your mind

Right off the bat, let me make clear that this is a beautifully bound and printed collection, that it's a bargain at Amazon's discounted price, and that these stories do exhibit Chandler's famously skillful writing style. In a couple of the stories in this collection, Chandler seems to be trying to write a Twilight Zone script, and in another he seems to be imitating P.G. Wodehouse, but in all of the rest he's true to form.

There is an important sense, however, in which this collection will be a mixed blessing to you if you've read and appreciated Chandler's novels. In a remarkable number of instances, the stories mix-and-match the plot lines from the novels. To be chronologically-correct, I should say that it's the other way around, I guess. In any case, it is disorienting to read Episodes X, Y, and Z from Novels A, B, and C all occurring in the same story. It's like having Nicholas Nickleby and David Copperfield team up to get Oliver Twist out of a jam. If you like to remember the things you read, you should be aware that the stories are likely to confuse your memories of the novels.

What's remarkable about Chandler is how even the same episode transplanted into a different story comes across interesting and fresh the second time around. ( )
