Ray Chandler’s Letters to James M. Fox


Ray Chandler’s correspondence with James M. Fox (an obscure writer of crime and espionage novels) offers interesting glimpses of Chandler’s tastes and responses to the work of other authors.

In the course of their letters, he comments on, mostly disparages:

Ross Macdonald (The Drowning Pool)

Dorothy B. Hughes (The Davidian Report)

Julian Symons (The Broken Penny)

Eric Maschwitz (Little Red Monkey)

John Dickson Carr

Agatha Christie

Ian Fleming (Casino Royale)

William Campbell Gault

Jacquin Sanders (Freak Show)

James M. Cain

Holly Roth (The Content Assignment)

And, last and perhaps least: James M. Fox.
