I don't know of one, but I am sure there is such a list. However, I
would like to point out that this is an international list and that we
make no artificial separations between writers based on nationality
and language. The statement of the list --for the discussion of
hardboiled and noir literature-- does not single out or exclude any
writer of such fiction.
Sometimes there is the problem that a book in English is published in
England and not in the US, or viceversa, so readers on one or the
other side may not have had a chance to get it and read it. We were
just discussing the paradoxical situation of the No Exit reprints,
officially never available in the US... whereas an English hardboiled
fan would likely be very familiar with them.
