Hammett: Or Is This a Better Birthday Present?

Okay, for a little extra oomph on the occasion of Hammett’s birthday, you can grab the current issue of The New Yorker which includes one of the “lost” Hammett short stories — but Vince Emery recently let me know that in May another surprise of sorts saw life:

The Thin Man jumped into print in Iran!

I bet you weren’t expecting that (really, the last thing on my mind).

I am having a bit of amusement contemplating how the bibulous Charles marriage is going to play in Tehran, but there you go.
