* TwilightOfTheOldWest[=/=]NewOldWest: "The Man Who Killed Dan Odams" is a Hammett short story that carries the conventions of TheWestern into the Twentieth Century. "Nightmare Town" and "Literature/RedHarvest" both have Western aspects, and the latter inspired the outright Western film ''Film/AFistfulOfDollars''. The Literature/ContinentalOp story "Corkscrew" is also a good example.
