Some people gave me that one month or more lead time I like, and asked for a walk. If interested, anyone can saddle up and join them for a tour one month from today on Sunday February 27 — open to all. Just show up. Noon. Four hours. Ten bucks. The usual. And it rolls, rain or no rain.
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.
