Chris said, "And speaking of Wild Bill, I branched off from limiting my Eslteman reading to the Amos Walker PI novels after reading this essay by James Sallis in which a familiar name makes a cameo."

Joe Lansdale is a familiar name, all right. But, kidding aside, I recommend all Estleman's westerns. The ones in the Page Murdock series might be a little more action-oriented than his standalones, but they're solid entertainment, and I'd consider them hardboiled. But not noir.
