The Strand Magazine to Publish Previously Unknown Short Story by Dashiell Hammett

The Strand Magazine

The Associated Press is reporting that the Strand Magazine will publish a previously unknown short story by Dashiell Hammett in its Winter/Spring issue.

"So I Shot Him" is a 19-page crime thriller written in the clipped style Hammett made famous in The Maltese Falcon and other works. Strand Magazine managing editor Andrew F. Gulli found the undated story, and 14 others by Hammett, while looking through archives at the University of Texas in Austin.

Hammett died 50 years ago at age 66.
