This book contains many Hammett stories from The Big Knockover collection, edited by Lillian Hellman. Crime Stories and Other Writings keeps the original pulp versions of Hammett's stories; The Big Knockover offers many of the "Ellery Queen" versions. Keep to Crime Stories or the 2016 Collected Case Files of the Continental Op, edited by Richard Layman and Julie M. Rivett.

Hammett refined his hard-boiled story-telling by writing for pulp magazines. Collected here are nearly all of his short stories, most of them featuring his Continental Op. While it may not be necessary to read ALL of these, it's an quick way to ease into the genre.

These are a MUST for any serious Noir fan.
