    On the other hand, contemporary noir should continue to thrive, as the work of Jason Starr and several other raravian favorites shows. The genre at its best is hardly a gimmick, and it will be even less so now that reality is surpassing fiction. My point is that you can remove practically all the artificiality and still have great noir stories in totally realistic settings.
