Daly, Carroll John: Carroll John Daly Sampler. V1. 24 Jul
Carroll John Daly (1889 – January 16, 1958) was a writer of crime fiction. He has been credited with creating the first hard-boiled detective story in 1923 with "Knights of the Open Palm," published June 1, 1923 in Black Mask magazine, featuring private detective Race Williams; the first appearance of Williams predated the debut of Dashiell Hammett's Continental Op character by several months. During that era, Daly was considered the leader of the naturalistic school of crime writers. Daly's Williams was a rough and ready character with a sharp tongue, and established the model for many later acerbic private eyes.

Charlie, this is your greatest contribution to date! Thanks!
I've already ordered two Carroll John Daly books from Amazon which I'm saving for Christmas, in case my family doesn't give me any good reading!

He's far, far closer to Mickey Spillane than Hammett. Very over the top, not serious.
