Extreme Web Surfs!
Wednesday, February 25, 2004

Some links to sites celebrating the genre of crime fiction which featured sleazy, busty babes and crooked , violent guys. They inspired film noir. As one site says, 'if the butler did it, we don't list it!"

Hardboiled Heaven - this is a great site, and I have to give them credit for leading me - directly or indirectly - to many of the following as well.

Raymond Chandler

Dashiell Hammett

Hardboiled Mysteries

Australian Hardboiled

Allan Guthrie maintains a great site, inclusing a noirzine
featuring new writing..

More up and coming harboiled writers here..

The slang..

Lurid Covers - great archives; also liked his distinctions, i.e. "lurid vs. porn", "lurid vs. sleaze" etc.

"In an age that is utterly corrupt, the best policy is to do as others do."
