Speaking personally I'd really like to see such a list even if we aren't doing UK HB/noir, as my knowledge of same is rather dismal. Aside from Derek Raymond/Robin Cook, a couple of Ted Lewis's Jack Carter books & THEY DRIVE BY NIGHT (or LIVE, I'm always confusing those 2 titles) & Phillip Kerr's "Berlin Noir" trilogy, all of which I've read & Gerald Kersh's NIGHT AND THE CITY which I haven't yet read but am very familiar with the classic film noir made from, it my working knowledge of UK hard stuff is woefully inadequate. I'm aware of some names but a knowledgeable listing of da good shit would interest me, at least.
