Well, I finally broke down and started a Twitter page:
I posted some short thoughts on P. D. James' declaration, in her book Talking about Detective Fiction, that Raymond Chandler "despised the English school of crime writing."
Perhaps an over-broad assertion! See for yourselves, by all means.
I will try to keep the twitter page going with with short thoughts and links that are really more appropriate for that sort of forum. I hope my blog readers will check in there too. See you there!
