Who do you like for contemporary writers that are keeping the hard-boiled tradition alive? I think James Ellroy and Jim Thompson keep the genre viable. Thompson is dead, but he wrote many stories. Ellroy should return to the noir pieces he does so well and take a break from the true crime stuff he's done of late. In a world of soft-men and a weak younger generation coming up, we need some alphamales running around.
