Recently I started a discussion here about humor and whether it belongs in a hard-boiled thriller or noir. I've just written a blog post about it and if you've got the time, check it out and give me your thoughts. Thanks
I always try to incorporate some humor into my Nicholas Colt thrillers, and if you read one you'll see that they're definitely hard-boiled. I LOVE humor in thrillers. Even in horror. Stephen King is one of the funniest authors I've ever read.
Thanks, Jude. I think Stephen King is funny, too.
I dig humor in anything as long as the humor "fits" the mood the story sets. The hunor in a movie like Pulp Fiction is organic and fits the serious tone. At the same time I don't have a problem with campy/tongue in cheek humor if the story presented itself as that to begin with.
Thanks, Jemir. My sentiments exactly.
