The only "-owski" I can drum up is George Zebrowski, who, along with Charles Pellegrino, produced one of the nastiest SF novels I've read in recent years -- THE KILLING STAR. It's an End-of-Humanity/Invasion novel with very hard science and great concepts. Reverses the SETI invitation with a vengeance.

I can't think of anyone named Sam, except Delany or Sundwall, and I don't believe they'd remotely qualify for hardboiled SF.

Best regards,
