Hammett: Pickup

Stuff Terry Zobeck covered in the halcyon days of yesteryear keeps circulating around.

Remember his post about “lost” Hammett stories, including such rogue titles as “Pickup” in Saturday Home Magazine? And follow-up posts about Hammett tales getting reprinted in god-knows-how-many newspapers?

We touched on “The Tenth Clew.”

“Dead Yellow Women.”

Today Evan Lewis displays on his blog a reprint of “Pickup” (a.k.a. “The Whosis Kid”) from the Philly Inquirer back in 1936. Check it out. Lots of illos.

Zobeck even doped out that Ellery Queen sometimes used these reprints in establishing the texts for his ten volume paperback reprints of Hammett.

A largely untouched arena of Hammett publication.
