Joe Gores Has Died

Joe Gores, an Edgar Award winning novelist and former president of the Mystery Writers of America, has passed away.

Writer and editor Janet Rudolph posted the news: “Gores worked as a logger, a carnie, a teacher at a boys’ school in Kenya, and for twelve years, as a detective. Gores’ novels and stories about detective agency Daniel Kearney Associates (KDA) were based on his own experiences as a San Francisco private eye. Gores also wrote scripts for Kojak, Columbo, Magnum P.I., Mike Hammer, Remington Steele, and other television series.”

This GalleyCat editor fondly recalls reading Spade & Archer and Hammett, two of Gore’s books that continued the legacy of the great private detective novelist, Dashiell Hammett. You can also stream Wim Wenders‘ adaptation of Hammett through Netflix’s streaming movie service. (Via Sarah Weinman)
