My name is Tom Williams and I’m writing a biography of Raymond Chandler, which will be published next year by Aurum Press.

I am near completing a book on the classical English “puzzle” detective novel (of “Simple Art” infamy!) and I recently finished a bit (about ten pages actually) on Chandler’s relationship with that form. Having read the two previous Chandler biographies and related material, I came to the conclusion that there was not only room for but a real need for yet another stab at him, so to speak; so I am pleased to read that you have tackled the job and that you evidently have discovered, through your diligence, new material. I would love to get in touch with you to discuss certain aspects of Chandler and his work, so please drop me a line if you feel so inclined. I am commenting here since I did not see your email address.
Sorry for the delay in approving your comment and responding. I’ve got out the habit of blogging and am only just refocusing my energies. I really like the sound of your book – who is your publisher? I would love to talk further and will email you this evening.
And thanks for your kind words about my book.
