About this Item

New York: The Curtis Publishing Company, 1939. Vol. 212, No. 16. First Edition, First Printing. A (very) good copy of this magazine, marred by some tears to the front and back cover (with loss) and an indentation (without loss) to the lower right that runs through the first fifty or so pages. Chandler's contribution lavishly illustrated by Hy Rubin. Other literary contributions include Philip Wylie's "Blowing East" - Ruth Burr Sanborn's "I Am the Clay" - Herbert Ravenel Sass's "The Venus Mugwump" - Octavius Roy Cohen's "Two-Gun Slappey Rides Again" - Allan R. Bosworth's "-And Iron Men". In addition there are some articles, serials and miscellany. This is Tony Reseck's only appearance as a (hotel) detective and Chandler's only contribution to this magazine. Tony wants to help the disillusioned Miss Cressy, but soon needs help himself to cope with the brutal death of his own brother Al. "I'm waiting for a tall dark guy that's no good, Tony. I was married to him once. I might be married to him again. You can make a lot of mistakes in just one lifetime." First reprinted in Five Sinister Characters (1945: 84-95).
