Noir@Bar

In case you live in the boonies or worse, Fresno, then you probably haven't heard about the fabulous Noir@Bar. It's like it sounds but to explain: it's hard-boiled, gritty Noir mystery readings in a venue where mystery fans love to hang out...a bar! Noir@Bar started in St. Louis though Philadelphia makes noise that they had something to do with it.

Denver is hosting its third Noir@Bar, Dec 12, 2013. If you're in the area, stop by. And if you're not, then raid the kid's college fund and make tracks to the Mile Hi City.

Our Noir@Bar effort is spearheaded by Jon Bassoff, who has a new book out, Corrosion, a tale of hard-boiled noir at its bleakest. The novel has been getting well-deserved reviews. Though I might be jinxing it a bit (but not too much as Bassoff has already spilled the beans), a movie adaptation is steaming forward--> Mike Macari (Executive Producer of the THE RING) has signed on as part of the production team.

The Holidays are around the corner and what better way to feel good about yourself than by giving! In this case, give the gift of sponsoring this Kickstarter for the anthology: Cars, Cards and Carbines. (Full disclosure – I'm one of the contributing authors.) Support Literary by sponsoring us!
