I was thinking the same thing, and those genres fit those authors in other ways. Hemingway is certainly an influence on a lot of hardboiled fiction & some of his stories (like The Killers) are great examples of the genre. Conrad's work owes more to a gothic tradition & some of it at least (e.g., The Secret Agent or even Heart of Darkness) fits very well into the category of noir.
