A collection of stories by

Soon after its founding in 2011, Noir Nation: International Crime Fiction became the globally recognized home of international crime fiction. Noir Nation’s content is often dark, sometimes creepy, and sometimes humorous but always at the service of the literary imagination as it explores the darker regions of human experience, where the only crime is weak writing.

This inaugural issue contains stories of a felon who hates books, a surgeon involved in the lurid murder of a nurse, a 7-11 stickup, the killing and night burial of a kangaroo, an ex-con who returns to prison, a venomous snake used as a murder weapon, a student/teacher romantic affair that promises ruin, revenge on an abusive priest and a Nazi collaborator, a missing mother, a serial killer in the woods, and a ruthless home aid nurse. It also contains a poem by a famous gun moll and a photographic illustrations of tattoo art.

The issue mixes award-winning masters of hardboiled and literary crime fiction Paul D. Brazill, Bianca Bellova, Jean Charbonneau, Tristan Davies, Les Edgerton, Stephen Gibson, Timothy Patrick Gibson, JJ Toner, and Scott Wolven with newer and emerging writers Leah Chamberlain, R.F. Warner, Kevin Hardcastle, Gerald Heys, Kevin Levites, and Yewande Omotoso. It also includes commentary on the state of noir fiction by J. Madison Davis, Alan Ward Thomas, Melodie Campbell, Wendy A.
