Re: RARA-AVIS: Hardboiled with cats

Date: 25 Sep 2005

I wonder if Poe's "The Black Cat" could be considered the first noir story?I might be opening up an argument here, but if so, he'd be the "Father of Noir, as well as the "Father of the Short Story," the "Father of Science Fiction," and the "Father of Detective Fiction." He might have started literary criticism too, but who needs that!

Love the excerpt, Tim. That cat's my idea of cute! Vicki
