Just got tipped off to a recent interview with librarian Randal Brandt on CrimeReads, if you’d care to drift over and check it out.
Randal took up the search for mysteries set in San Francisco after I donated my collection to Bancroft Library, and now it sounds as if they’re after crime fiction covering all the big burgs and tiny hamlets in the state, the valleys and the ranges — the works. They’ve even got a rich donor or two giving them some pocket change, which can’t hurt.
Anyway, the latest updates on the state of the collection. Randal even drops my name in passing.
I was the pioneer who blazed the trail for those Mean Streets.
