Hammett: And “Martha Ivers”

Early this year I gave a notice for Matthew Asprey’s collection of Jack London stories set in San Francisco — and now I hear that he’s jumped fully into the academic world as Dr. Matthew Asprey Gear, Department of Media, Music & Cultural Studies, Macquarie University, Sydney.

A recent essay from Matthew may be of interest to some of our Up and Down visitors, since it concerns Hammett (especially the Hammett of Red Harvest) and the classic noir film “The Strange Love of Martha Ivers” (1946). It just popped up on the online journal NEO — check it out.
