[[caption-width-right:250:Being a private Dick in this town was hungry work... and he was all out of bananas.]]A sister trope of "neo noir" or {{cyberpunk}}, fantastic noir is a relatively small {{subgenre}} that blends the setting, characters (it usually stars a HardboiledDetective who sometimes doubles as an OccultDetective) and plot structure of a FilmNoir mystery story with the more colorful elements of {{fantasy}} and ScienceFiction. The genre seemed to arrive all at once in TheEighties and remains strong today, with the publication of such books as ''Literature/AnonymousRex'', ''WhoCensoredRogerRabbit'', ''[[Literature/GarrettPI Sweet Silver Blues]]'', ''[[Literature/AFableOfTonight Stalking The Unicorn]]'', and ''Literature/TheHollowChocolateBunniesOfTheApocalypse''.
