This is not even the correct book. There is nothing here that has anything to do with Raymond Chandler. I informed my local Barnes and noble three weeks ago and nothing has changed. I hope someone is going to publish this review and and straighten this out.

This isn't correct - I ordered Preiss's book on Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe - I received 'Stories from Atlantis', by Silverberg. Please fix your link, and - AND put the correct book in MyNook. Thanks. PS: Otherwise, B&N is doing a mighty fine job!

A short story collection of Philip Marlowe pastiches. As you might expect, they are of uneven quality and even the one story by Raymond Chandler isn¿t one of his best. The stories are arranged by the years in which they are supposed to occur from the 30s to the 50s. One of the better stories is, in fact, the first one from 1935, ¿The Perfect Crime,¿ by Max Allan Collins based on the death of actress Thelma Todd. It is easy to parody the Chandler stories and more than a few of them come off as over-ripe but it is an interesting collection and worth reading.
