Ooh, sounds yummy! Hammett only wrote five novels? I had no idea. I always imagined there were lots and lots of them.


I'm with Stefanie, I didn't realize he only wrote five novels. I think he's such a name for hard-boiled fiction that you imagine he left behind a great body of work. Which, with his short stories he may have but I just assumed he wrote more novels. I think you'll have a great time with your project!


But he wrote loads of short stories. He is so well known that it just seems like there were a lot of novels!


Five novels, and short ones at that, seem pretty manageable, doesn't it? We'll see. I always have about ten books at once grabbing my attention.
