While I don't usually post BSP-related things on this list, I thought you might find this interview with me to be interesting.
In it, I touch a bit on what I think makes a mystery "hardboiled" (or, at least, some of the factors) and provide an excerpt of one of my short stories from FIVE UNEASY PIECES. The excerpt is from a story that's, essentially, a parody of the hardboiled private eye novel as told by the (in this case, clueless) femme fatale.

Feel free to leave a comment to qualify for the Wednesday drawing for a free signed copy of my novel.
