The Strand Prints Unpublished Chandler Sketch

Jan 29, 2018

It’s probably hard to overstate the influence author Raymond Chandler had on all of the detective fiction to follow, and that extends to The Strand magazine, which has printed “It’s All Right—He Only Died,” a previously unpublished Chandler short story in its latest issue. The sketch is an indictment of the American health care system and its emphasis on money. It was written in the 1950s. Joining us to discuss this discovery, as he does from time to time, is Andrew Gulli, the editor and publisher of The Strand.
