RARA-AVIS: Re:Nameless Detective uncloaked?

Re your question below:

"Does anybody know which title he started becoming Bill?"

Way back in 1978, in the crossover novel TWOSPOT, on which Pronzini collaborated with Collin Wilcox (and Pronzini's "Nameless" collaborated with Wilcox's SFPD Homicide Liutenant Frank Hastings), Hastings refers to
"Nameless" as "Bill."

That was mainly because it was difficult for Wilcox, in the parts of the novel narrated by his character, to refer to Prnozini's character without referring to him by name.
