The cross-fertilisation of crime and the fantastic has produced some of the field's most memorable works and partnerships, from Elijah Bailey and R. Daneel Olivaw to Mosca Mye and Saracen (and Eponymous Clent); or from Gentlemen Bastards to Sex Criminals. What is the appeal of such stories? What do crime stories gain from a touch of the fantastic? Are particular crime subgenres -- from cosy mystery to hardboiled -- more or less suited to the SF treatment, and why?
