Hi. Coincidentally, I'm reading "Bullets" by him right now. I wouldn't call it hard-boiled, because there's a strong current of humor, almost farce, running through it. Definitely dark, though, so it fits in with noir, but I wouldn't compare him to Leonard. Leonard takes himself far more seriously.

 I met Steve at B'con last year, shared a shuttle to the airport with him, and a beer at the airport, and he gave me a copy of "Boost", which I enjoyed. He's a funny guy. His books reflect his personality, I think.
