I just finished going through a few hard boiled SF & Fantasy books for something different.
Jonathan Lethem's Gun, With Occasional Music. I enjoyed it, very Chandlereque, but it made me wish that Lethem had written a straight Chandleresque story without the Sci Fi.
William Gibson's Count Zero - 2nd in the Sprawl trilogy. Not as hard boiled as Neuromance, but very enjoyable.
Simon Green's Something from the Nightside - I enjoyed until the ending, which was too easy in my opinion.
Warren Hammond's KO - I enjoyed it, very hard boiled.
Richard Morgan's Altered Carbon - I can't say enough positives about this, a gripping book.
Any other recommendations?
I also read:
Larry Block's the Sins of the Fathers - enjoyed that.
Reed Farrell Coleman's Walking the Perfect Square - I really enjoyed it even if I usually prefer the lone wolf type detectives
Elmore Leonard's the Big Bounce - I had seen the recent movie, but read the book anyway. It was okay, but I preferred the movie.
