What do you think of Noir as a genre? This article Noir Through Space And Time : 13.7: Cosmos And Culture : NPR reminds me of how much Noir I have read or watched over the years, and has me scanning my bookshelves. Most of what I’ve read recently might be considered Fantasy Noir (i.e. stories by Jim Butcher or Kim Harrison where magic is thrown in on top of the mix) but I also have several of the books mentioned in the article, along with more just like them.
So tell me, are you a Noir reader? What’s your favorite, and why?
