I won't go into the implausibility discussion (I don't have the time; I do
know I started the whole thing), but I want to say that I've often felt that
crime fiction that's in the vein of Gil Brewer, James M. Cain, Jason Starr
and Allan Guthrie is more plausible, since there are no detectives solving
As for the concept itself, I think we must differ it from realistic. Fantasy
can be plausible, even sword & sorcery can be plausible. But explaining this
might take too much of my time, as I'm not even sure whether the English
word "implausible" means exactly the same thing as I want to say in Finnish.
(Which is my mother tongue, I'm sure not all people on the list know that.)
Okay, back to work.
