Glad to see Terrill Lankford back. He's right about Joe Lansdale's work, and he's really right about Richard Matheson. I AM LEGEND is a hardboiled horror novel for sure. And THE SHRINKING MAN is hardboiled SF. I think Anthony Boucher even mentioned something like this in his original review of one or the other of them. They were both done for Gold Medal, which is a clue.
