Dashiell Hammett Short Stories Discovered

Dashiell Hammett mostly invented the hard boiled detective story. I like Hammett because he had this thing where every story had one perfect sentence. If you search through you can usually find it. It is a sentence that blows you away. In his novels, you can find them scattered about. I read fast, sometimes skimming entire pages, but with Hammett, I am forced to slow down, because I don’t want to miss these little jewels.

I am interested in reading these stories and might even subscribe to “The Strand” where they will appear, just to get to read them.
