RE: RARA-AVIS: Re: Best Contemporary Hardboiled Author?

My list of favorites doesn't stray from the basic RA consensus, but I thought I'd share it to add another voice to the conversation: George Pelecanos, Michael Connelly, James Sallis, Ken Bruen, Joseph Wambaugh, James Ellroy and Richard Price.

I'll read anything I can by that group as soon as I possibly can. Others that I wouldn't miss but don't approach with quite the same urgency are Block's Scudder series, Estleman's Walker series, Thomas Cook, Walter Mosley and on and on and on.
