Noir

I arrived home last night to book post (the best kind of post), which proved to be contributor copies of the anthology NOIR edited by Ian Whates, which includes my story The Crepuscular Hunter. And very stylish they look too!

Ian describes the anthology as ‘thirteen stories that dance around genre boundaries but are linked by a sense of foreboding, a prickly itch that will unsettle and leave you with the impression of something sinister lurking just beyond the reach of awareness.’ 

Noir anthology

There’s a review of the anthology over at Amazing Stories which you can read here.

You can order copies in paperback, hardback or ebook (for a very reasonable £2.01 on Kindle) over at Amazon.
