About Me

My photo
I've been a house painter, dishwasher, broiler cook, private detective, military intelligence analyst, and I spent nearly 40 years as a reporter covering crime, 26 of them for the San Francisco Chronicle. These days I write science fiction, fantasy, horror and crime fiction, and I blog about books, films and crimes that don't receive sufficient attention from the mainstream media. I would like to be Elmore Leonard, Raymond Chandler, Ross MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett or George V. Higgins, but all of them are dead so I'll just stick with what I am already doing. . .

William E. Wallace is serving up bare-knuckle stories in old-school style.

Superstitious criminals down on their luck, junkies with trigger fingers, mysterious driftersthese are the kind of characters you’ll meet in this collection of lurid tales.

"(Wallace) is a master at building scenes, characters, layering dialogue and description, and filling in back-story with no interruption to the momentum of the story." Greg Barth, author of Selena and Diesel Therapy

"The best of William E. Wallace’s work revolves around the concept of justice. . . I’m talking the big, broader cosmic sense. Judgment. Reckoning. Down in the filth and garbage of the street, it’s all street justice." Joe Clifford, author of Lamentation and December Boys

"It is not easy to combine humor, characterization, and persuasive action but here it’s done well. These stories will make you a Wallace fan." Patti Abbott, author of Concrete Angel

"Wallace is quite simply a brilliant writer." Will Viharo author of Love Stories Are Too Violent for Me
