Future noir. Please recommend detective fiction in a scifi setting.
A mefi refuted my jokey comment about how Snowcrash, by dint of celebrating cliches, bookends the cyberpunk genre (with Neuromancer at the other end) and suggested Altered Carbon, the first of the Takeshi Kovacs novels, and I'm looking for more.
It doesn't have to be "high art," I'm looking for pulp detective-y/hard boiled/noir stories to read for fun (but quality is appreciated), as opposed to straight-up "Cyberpunk" as was previously asked
I've read pretty much the entire body of Gibson, Sterling, Stephenson, Stross, PKD, Bear, Egan, but couldn't get into Melville no matter how hard I tried, I've already read Gravity's Rainbow, The Star's My Destination, and The Demolished Man, and I'm planning on reading the Travis McGee novels.
