Few use the word explicitly, but all embody a remarkably consistent code of behavior and personality traits.

Dashiell Hammett changed the face of crime fiction.
In five novels published over five years as well as a string of stories, he transformed the mystery genre into literature and left us with the figure of the hard-boiled detective, from the Continental Op to Sam Spade—immortalized on film by Humphrey Bogart in The Maltese Falcon—and the more glamorous Thin Man, also made iconic with the aid of Hollywood. A brilliant writer, Hammett was a complex and enigmatic man.
A Novel, Seventh Street Books, , pages. There the dying Hammett confronts a woman from his past who proves to be his most formidable rival. Film scholar William H. Mooney reveals the wide range of films crafted from the same Hammett novels, as when The Maltese Falcon was filmed first as a pre-Code sexploitation movie, then as a Bette Davis screwball comedy, and finally as the Humphrey Bogart classic. He also considers how Hammett rose to Hollywood fame not through the genre most associated with him, but through a much fizzier concoction, the witty murder mystery The Thin Man.

The 'femme fatale' figure in film noir has long served as a central defining feature of these rich and compelling films of the post-war American period.
In Rethinking the Femme Fatale in Film Noir, Julie Grossman shows the extent to which the women often labelled as 'femmes fatales' are in fact sympathetic modern women, whose stories of strength, wit and privation command fascination.
This study undertakes to erode the category of the 'femme fatale' in favour of careful close readings of film noir and a larger consideration of the drawbacks of labelling women as angels and 'femmes fatales', a perverse cultural inheritance from the Victorian era.

Forging Canadian national identity from primeval nature Amy J. Wells parus entre Throughout nineteenth-century Britain, female writers excelled within the genre of supernatural literature.

Topicality and Temporality in H. This book examines the rise of Fantastic literature on the continent in the nineteenth century, the development of a European Gothic and the influence which this exerted on British writers.
By examining writers like Nodier, Hoffmann, Gautier, Feval and Stevenson, the book argues firstly how their writings subvert entirely the view of the Fantastic accepted by Todorov, Punter and others, to show that it is the reversal of a pre-Enlightenment, spiritual world-view which causes terror in these works, and further demonstrates that Gothic novels frequently use allusion and anachronism to portray a cyclical view of history opposed to that of Scott. With the rise and popularization of science fiction, the inventiveness and variety of impossible narrative spaces explodes. The author analyses the narrative techniques used to represent such spaces alongside their cultural significance.
Each chapter connects narrative deformation of space with historical problematic of time, and demonstrates the cognitive and perceptual primacy of narrative in representing, imagining and apprehending new forms of space and time. This book brings together two important cultural trends: By considering scenarios of encounters with intelligent aliens in literary science fiction, Science Fiction, Alien Encounters, and the Ethics of Posthumanism argues that the ethics of empathy and politics of human rights are insufficient to meet the challenges of our posthuman age.

It also contains an extensive discussion of Soviet science fiction and of the novels of Stanislaw Lem, bringing important aspects of global posthumanist culture to the attention of the Anglo-American reader.
Feeling in Gothic Fiction, London, Bloomsbury, , pages. As pseudo-historical fantasy, Gothic fiction embodies contemporary neuroses, especially sexual fears and repressions, which run right. This study traces the effort to articulate these disconcerting emotions in symbol, incident, landscape and architecture.

Maturin in "Melmoth the Wanderer" and later by Charlotte Bronte whose "Jane Eyre", arguably the finest of Gothic novels, places the earlier experiments in perspective.
A study of European utopias in context from the early years of Henry VIII's reign to the Restoration, this book is the first comprehensive attempt since J.

Le royaume de Femenie, entre utopieet dystopie: Voltaire et le meilleur des mondes possibles Florence Boulerie: Entre utopie et dystopie, un roman initiatique sandien: La perfection est-elle de ce monde? Prophets of the Posthuman provides a fresh and original reading of fictional narratives that raise the question of what it means to be human in the face of rapidly developing bioenhancement technologies.
Drawing on a wide range of sources in philosophical and theological ethics, Lake argues that these writers share a commitment to maintaining a category of personhood more meaningful than that allowed by utilitarian ethics. Prophets of the Posthuman insists that because technology can never ask whether we should do something that we have the power to do, literature must step into that role.
