Various people asked for a walk this month, so show up at noon Sunday January 23 if interested —open to anyone with a tenspot, ready to gumshoe, and it won’t be cancelled because of rain. Check the drop-down menu under The Tour in the main menu bar above for details about where to meet, how long the walk goes (it is the normal four hour version). If you are really in the mood for hard-boiled and noir, you could walk the walk and then run over for a couple of Noir City films in the Castro Theatre.
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.
