I think Pronzini's got a pretty good claim to the title of being the best PI short story writer currently practicing. Certainly *Casefile* and *Spadework* are two of the best single-author PI collections to be published in the last two decades.

Another point should be made is his amazing ability to collaborate with so many other writers, from iconoclastic science-fiction/fantasy specialists like Barry Malzberg to political columnists like Jack Anderson to his significant other, Marcia Muller. William DeAndrea once called him the "mystery equivalent to blood type O." - Jim Doherty
