Hardboiled tales and newspapers. They've gone together from the beginning.

The River City Blade is a fictional paper, devoted to the spirit of the hardboiled newspaperman. Its sister paper is called The Frisco Foil, and I've based a few stories there -- when I feel like writing about the West Coast.

Whether it's the Foil or the Blade, whether it was Kennedy of the Free Press or Kolchak of "Night Stalker" fame, reporters always stick their notebooks where they don't belong.

Read about the history of The Blade. Or The Foil.

Or go right to the stories.

-- Hugh Lessig.
