todd says: Among the most obvious descendants of hb in sf include Algis Budrys, who had one of his sf novels published by legendary hb house Lion, but whose ROGUE MOON is probably his most hb sf (his Edgar nom or winning non-sf suspense
"The Master of the Hounds" is ultraviolet noir)...


what?!? "ultraviolet noir"? i gotta read that! thanks for the heads up.

what about some of gibson's cyber science fiction? i'm thinking that _neuromancer_ might qualify as both noir and hardboiled. that book kicks butt. i rank it right up there at the top with dune and stranger in a strange land.
