Macdonald (born Kenneth Millar) also wrote several novelettes and short-stories involving Southern California private-detective Lew Archer.

The Archer Files for the first time collects all the brief Archer fiction: the stories from Macdonald s 1955 paperback-original The Name Is Archer, the additional tales included in the Otto Penzler-edited 1977 volume Lew Archer: Private Investigator, and the three then-unknown novellas presented in Crippen & Landru s 2001 book Strangers in Town. Also included in The Archer Files are several lengthy, never-before-published fragments of unfinished Macdonald stories: case notes, as it were, from the files of Lew Archer.

Edited by Macdonald biographer Tom Nolan, The Archer Files is prefaced with Nolan s biographical sketch of Lew Archer himself -- the character Eudora Welty described as a champion and a distinguished creation ... As a detective and as a man he takes the human situation with full seriousness. Jeff Wong s cover is adapted from the 1955 paperback original, but depicting Ross Macdonald rather than Lew Archer.
