The latest installation of our (pretend) series on expensive literary residences: Dashiell Hammett’s apartment.

You can currently rent the 250-square-foot apartment in San Francisco’s Tenderloin District in which Hammett wrote three novels.

Should $1,850 per month be out of your price range — or should you live elsewhere — you can visit the apartment by reading The Maltese Falcon; according to the Association of Library Advocates, Sam Spade’s residence in that novel was based on Hammett’s real-life home from 1926-1929.

Check out photos of Hammett’s apartment at Curbed, which also has a link to the live Craigslist ad.
