Use the drop-down menu to read a few essays on people Don has known, such as Dennis McMillan, Charles Willeford, and Floyd Salas — as well as some reviews, blurbs on noir and Hammett tour ephemera, and cornerstone items in Robert E. Howard studies from 1976 and 1984.
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.
