A. A. Attanasio, actually, who may be cheered to know of a fan of that novel, with its troubled publication history. Attanasio's work is rarely too close to hb, but not a little has its noirish aspects...contemporary fantasy THE MOON'S WIFE or sf ARC OF THE DREAM come to mind... TM

Noir, this evanescent color...

On the other hand there was a "novelization" of certain episodes of the Trojan War, by A.A.Atanasio and Robert S. Henderson : "Silent" (1996) A member of a street gang, the Street Gypsies, seduces the wife of a Mafia boss in Boston... This pastiche uses some of the best known events of this War as background for its modern story. Note: The same episodes were already used in lit works by a Greek guy aka Homer...
