Crime novel website featured

The May 1 issue of Booklist, a book review journal, features the article "A Hard-Boiled Gazetteer to San Francisco," which surveys crime novels set in this area. It credits our own hard-boiled librarian, Randal Brandt:

"For readers interested in a more far-reaching scan of mysteries set in San Francisco and environs, go immediately to a wonderful Web site called Golden Gate Mysteries, maintained by the reigning expert on the topic, Randal Brandt, from the Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley. Brandt covers the waterfront, from the nineteenth century to yesterday."
