The Flitcraft Parable
(Warning: RealMedia) This nicely crafted nugget is taken from Dashiell Hammett
's The Maltese Falcon
. While some literary reputations from the 1920s and '30s are falling (e.g., Nobel Prize winner Sinclair Lewis), Hammett's rep is still rising.
My question: Which so-called genre authors writing today have the greatest chance of still being read in the 22nd century?
