Just read

Last night I finished reading Hardboiled: An Anthology of American Crime Fiction. If you like pulpy kind of noiry mystery stuff, this is the book for you. The editors pick stories from the 1930s through the 1990s, and give a little bio/context before each author's selection that is actually interesting and helpful and not lame. I'd already read the stories by Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammet in this one, but they were worth reading again, and I found several new authors that I really want to pursue. Josh has had this book for as long as we've been together, and for some reason I never thought to pick it up until last week. What a fool I have been...
