This book is a collection of all 13 short stories of Chandler.Chandler spent more effort and longer time in the works created from 1933 to 1939 and published in popular periodicals than those of the fast-handed ones produced in bulk and easy to get money, and this meticulous slow-handed writher did not earn much.Chandler treats these "e;pulp and cheap"e; novels with the mentality of writing serious literature, even after they are collected and published, he did not stop modifying, so as to find "e;a way suiting both refined and popular tastes, providing the extent to which the general people can think, and the power that only the art novels can produce."e;In addition to this, Chandler has also created 8 short stories, which were used as material for his 3 subsequent masterpieces (Big Sleep, Farewell, My Lovely and The Lady in the Lake).However, he did not allow these 8 short stories to be published during his lifetime.Therefore, the 13 novels included in this book are complete collection of Chandler's short stories, which concentrates on reflecting the narrative style (dramatic, playing hard-to-get, and human nature before the case) of Chandler's reasoning novel (that is, his "e;pulp"e; novel), and his peculiar cold hard-boiled man and sorrow are unforgettable.
