This book examines Tech-Noir as a distinct literary and cinematic genre. It provides a comprehensive comparative historical analysis of the development of Tech-Noir in relation to other established genres and attempts to define the parameters of this genre. This study shows the development of tech-noir as a film genre in its relationship to the Promethean myth and to earlier popular genres, such as gothic, detective, and science fiction. It lends particular attention to the importance of "Aeschylus's Prometheus Trilogy" (458-56 BCE) and three literary classics, including Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein"; or, "The Modern Prometheus" (1818), Robert Louis Stevenson's "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" (1886), and Herbert George Wells' "The Island of Dr. Moreau" (1896), to tech-noir.
