  I reading The Best American Short Stories 2005 edited by Michael Chabon (Houghton Mifflin), I was surprised to find the second story in the collection is "Until Gwen" by Dennis Lehane which had first appeared in Atlantic Monthly. This is a very noir story told in the second person voice. It should please everyone on this list.
  Interestingly, the editor Chabon is the author of the rather challenging The Final Solution, a pastiche of Sherlock Holmes.
  Although primarily known for his novels, Chabon has turned into an interesting champion of the short story. He's compiled two (maybe three?) anthologies of original genre-influenced fiction under the aegis of the McSweeney's lit journal:
  McSweeney's Enchanted Chamber of Astonishing Stories
  McSweeney's Mammoth Treasury of Thrilling Tales
