* Creator/RobertAHeinlein's novella "Magic, Inc." directly deals with an investigator's pursuit into the workings of a sinister organization, in a parallel version of the modern urban world where magic is commonplace -- including flying carpet taxicabs.
** To a similar extent, RAH's "Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag," also surrounding a man-and-wife PI team investigating the titular character, although the magic in that story is more of the divine sort. (Sort of.)

[[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) 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''.
