Chandler did not allow these stories to be collected and printed in his lifetime, but they were collected in “Killer in the Rain,” (1964) published after his death. Several of his short stories originally featured protagonists other than Marlowe, but became Marlowe stories (or, in a few cases, John Dalmas) when they were collected, notably in “The Simple Art of Murder.”
