I have only read CASEFILES, a collection of Nameless stories. In the introduction to that or somewhere else I read Pronzini saying Nameless is very much like him. They both are overweight, smoked too much and are sloppy. I think in most of the stories Nameless' his age is given so it would be hard for Pronzini to not have him age. To write a new book I guess he could have Nameless remoniscing over a past case Mark.
