It has been announced that Joe Gores will write a prequel novel to The Maltese Falcon. To be titled Spade & Archer, it will tell how Sam Spade and Miles Archer came to start a detective agency together.

This is Joe's dream project; he has been trying to get the rights together for years. Publication date should be fall 2007. Knopf will publish.
