Joe Gores, RIP

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Joe Gores died Monday.

Like Dashiell Hammett, he was a private detective before he became a mystery writer. I suppose he was most famous for his book Hammett in which he imagined Dashiell Hammett to solve a case, and most recently Spade & Archer, a prequel to The Maltese Falcon.

I am currently reading a collection of Hammett short stories called Lost Stories. Gores wrote the introduction to it.

And another by the San Francisco Chronicle (Mr Goes apparently resided near SF):
