Raymond Thornton Chandler (July 23, 1888 – March 26, 1959) was an American novelist and screenwriter. In 1932, at the age of forty-four, Chandler became a detective fiction writer after losing his job as an oil company executive during the Great Depression. His first short story, “Blackmailers Don’t Shoot”, published in 1933 in Black Mask, a popular pulp magazine. His first novel, The Big Sleep, published in 1939. In addition to his short stories, Chandler published seven novels during his lifetime (an eighth, in progress at the time of his death, completed by Robert B. Parker).
All have been made into motion pictures, some more than once. In the year before his death, he elected president of the Mystery Writers of America. He died on March 26, 1959, in La Jolla, California.
Chick Evans not a bit pleased and he did not mind saying so. He is a belligerent little fellow, three years younger than I am. I am twenty-six. My name is Alan Frane. As persons know from the Government newscasters who have given this Neptune affair plenty of publicity, I am Junior Technician in the Raw Materials Division, producing the Nullo-grav units—the electronic counter-charged metallic plates which nullify gravitational force.
Chick Evans did not like laboratory work. He went for Navigation and got a job on the Earth-Moon. They take food and supplies to the Moon-colonists and bring back cargoes of the semi-refined ores.
