Web Noir

Today at The Morning News I take a look at a number of online crime ezines, which are publishing some of the most powerful and provocative fiction being written today. Check it out: Web Noir.

In preparation for this article, I wrote six people about the topic, expecting to hear back from two, maybe three. Instead, every single person replied, and each was incredibly generous with their input and analysis. My thanks go out to:

Number six was Charles Ardai from Hard Case Crime, whose disquisition on the difference between “noir” and “hardboiled” was so eloquent and exhaustive that it merits its own post.
