If you want to practise your German, hop over to Culturmag for an article on the fiftieth anniversary of Hammett’s death by Peter Münder — if you’ve got no German worth speaking of, hit the translate button and it’ll spin into the American idiom for you. The piece includes cameos by Raymond Chandler, me and the Hammett tour, and a YouTube bit about Hammett’s life philosophy. And longtime vistors to this website may recall Peter’s much longer article on Hammett from 2006.
In 1977 Don Herron began leading The Dashiell Hammett Tour, now the longest-running literary tour in the nation. On this site you’ll find information on current walks — dates, where to meet, arranging tours by appointment — plus a hard-boiled blog with news, reviews of books and film, and a dash of noir.
The latest and greatest edition to self-guide you up and down the mean streets.
