I live in Hawaii and I didn't start reading noir fiction until I was middle-aged. I like the classic authors (Chandler, Thompson, Cain, Hammett etc.) more than the newer forensic-oriented writers.

I have written 2 noir novellas (1 published as a paperback), several noir short stories (two of which were published by magazines) and a noir screenplay adapted from one of my short stories (as yet unproduced).

Charles Bukowski is one of my favorite authors, but I'm not sure if he is considered noir. "Barfly" was the funniest movie I ever saw about the seedy side of life.

I also write mainstream fiction (2 books published), but I continue to be fascinated by noir fiction. Blame it on TV. I grew up watching (and loving) old noir films on a Chicago station.

One question: Can we post original noir fiction here?
