Today I’m happy to bring you Dashiell Hammett’s story “The Barber and His Wife” (1923) with permission from the Literary Property Trust of Dashiell Hammett and with thanks to Vince Emery for sending me a copy of the book Lost Stories by Dashiell Hammett and helping me get this project on the way.
In case you haven’t already stopped by CrimeWAV, I regularly bring you the best in crime fiction short stories from today, yesterday, and all around the globe for free. It’s CrimeWAV.com. Have a listen.
Also, for those of you keeping score at home, my novel JACK WAKES UP came in at #9 for May on the IMBA Bestsellers List! Thank you IMBA!
