The publication of a long-lost Dashiell Hammett story was itself an act of sleuthing.Hammett's granddaughter and literary trustee, Julie M. Rivett, told the Associated Press that she saw a posting on a Hammett reading group on Facebook that referred to a story no one had heard of before.Unable to find the story in any Hammett bibliography, he contacted crime fiction author-blogger Kevin Burton Smith.In an introduction run in Electric Literature, Rivett and Hammett biographer Richard Layman write that Hammett was suffering physically and financially at the time "The Glass That Laughed" first ran.Dashiell Hammett's "The Glass That Laughed" can be found at Electric Literature, https://electricliterature.com.
