San Francisco Noir (MP3 CD)
Launched by the summer '04 award-winning bestseller "Brooklyn Noir," Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies. Each book is comprised of all-new stories, each one set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book. Brand new stories by: Barry Gifford, Robert Mailer Anderson, Michelle Tea, Peter Plate, Kate Braverman, Domenic Stansberry, David Corbett, Eddie Muller, Alejandro Murguia, Sin Sorracco, Alvin Lu, John Longhi, Will Christopher Baer, Jim Nisbet, and David Henry Sterry.
"San Francisco Noir" lashes out with hard-biting tales exploring the shadowy nether regions of scenic "Baghdad by the Bay." In this superb collection, virtuosos of the genre meet up with the best of SF's literary fiction community to chart a unique psycho-geography for a dark landscape. From inner city boroughs to the outlands, each contributor offers an original story based in a distinct neighborhood. At times brutal, darkly humorous, and revelatory the stories speak of a hidden San Francisco, a town where the fog is but a prelude to darker realities lingering beneath.
