    Ah, the hell with him.

    Now that Joseph Hansen's gone, who are some the best writers of homosexual or gay-themed hard-boiled and noir out there? It's yet another niche category (besides urban fiction and over-the-top noir, to name two) that's grown steadily since the advent of POD and the the rise of the internet.

    I'm reading an ARC of Richard Stevenson's 38 MILLION DOLLAR SMILE, due out in November, and I'm actually enjoying it quite a bit more than I expected. I hadn't read any of the books for a while, but his style is a lot tighter and tauter than I recall.
