RARA-AVIS: The First Heresy

From: Bludis Jack ( buildsnburns@yahoo.com)

I think Jim Doherty defined hardboiled as "Tough and colloqueal" and noir as "dark and sinister."

The Heresy is that I chopped it down to two one word definitions: Hardboiled=tough and noir=screwed.

Now, if I have anouther heresy out there, I'm not aware of it.

But I do say that Red Harvest is dreck--but that's auxilary to the second heresey.

BTW, I think it was Kerry who said that shoot-em-ups have their place. I agree, but I would rather see them done well. Peleconoes comes close and he has the guts to say what his books are--Urban Westerns.
