>How about children's literature?
May I recommend a strategic Rara-Avian withdrawal, leaving this can of worms unopened? Children's literature has always been very hb/noir, thanks to its roots in the fairy tale, grizzly stories of Christian martyrdom, 18th-19th century moral instruction - whatever. It is crowded with wonderful stuff which leaves Harry Potter looking like the cozy comedy that it is.

Now Alice in Wonderland, for example ...

(for godsake don't get her started, they screamed).
