Book Description:
Dashiell Hammett, the bestselling creator of Sam Spade, The Maltese Falcon, and The Thin Man, was one of the America s most entertaining authors, and one of its most influential. Even so, many of Hammett s stories including some of his best have been out of the reach of anyone but a handful of scholars and collectors until now.

Lost Stories rescues 21 long lost Hammett stories, all either never published in an anthology or unavailable for decades. Stories range from the first fiction Hammett ever wrote to his last. All stories have been restored to their original versions, replacing often wholesale cuts with the original text for the first time.

Readers of Hammett's famous mysteries will be surprised by the variety of stories here. They include Hammett's first detective fiction, humorous satires, adventure yarns, a sensitive autobiographical piece, and a tale Ellery Queen promises 'is one of the most startling stories you have ever read.'

For each story, Hammett researcher Vince Emery tells how Hammett s life shaped the story and how the story affected his life. Emery s comments reveal surprises about Hammett s life not covered in any other book.

To round out this celebration of Hammett, three time Edgar Award winner Joe Gores has written an introduction describing how Hammett influenced literature, movies, television, and Gores own life.

Lost Stories is the first title in The Ace Performer Collection, a new series of books by and about Dashiell Hammett, crowned 'the ace performer' by his disciple Raymond Chandler.
