DescriptionsEdit Descriptions

Hammett originally published stories featuring his private detective, the Continental Op, in various pulp magazines (mostly in Black Mask). Later Hammett incorported eight of those stories into two separate novels (The Dain Curse and Red Harvest). The complete Continental Op series is represented by those two novels plus the stories. Various editions collect some or all of these. (English, Technical/disambiguation notice)
