"gravitas" to be spoken of here without embarassment.>>

Of course, but no gravitas is needed (otherwise, we would never discuss brand-new authors). As long as someone likes a hardboiled book or writer and wants to bring up the topic, it's fair game. I gave my opinion on the quality of these particular writers, as you have of, er, Dell Shannon. I did not say that they were not worthy of discussion. In fact, I was discussing them. I am not sure that Grafton is hardboiled. Paretsky obviously is.
