i'm into noir myself and he's one of my favorites
Yes, that is definitely something I look forward to reading. I am currently reading Jim Thompson’s A Hell of a Woman, and enjoying it a great deal. Another tumblr commented on my post and suggested Donald Westlake/Richard Stark, another author I want to read.
Browsing used books will turn up a variety of noirs, but perhaps not a systematic survey of the genre. I’m fine with that. I used the library to check out the foundational stuff (Chandler, Hammett, some Cain). I’ve no shortage of reading material at the moment, so I’m not looking for anything in particular—though I wouldn’t pass by The Killer Inside Me or one of the Parker novels if I came across it.
