Noir Magazine rewards are being readied
Thank you to everyone who replied to the survey. In the next couple of weeks, we plan to complete the fulfillment of the rewards. We’re excited to unveil our “Smoking Gun” artwork that is soon to be printed on our Thank You cards, T-shirts and Tote Bags. You can see it at the end of the email.
For those of you who are going to receive the inaugural copy of the magazine, in the coming weeks we’ll be sending out the certificate you will need to download your copy of Noir. Our first issue is an embarrassment of riches: we have articles and stories by Lee Child, Michael Connelly, Denise Hamilton, Annie Jacobson, Laura Lippman and Otto Penzler, among others.
Lee Child writes about bringing Reacher to the screen – and how the filmmakers got it right. Michael Connelly seconds the motion in his piece on “Jack Reacher.”
Michael Connelly also sat down with us for an in-depth interview on his latest Harry Bosch novel, “The Black Box,” as well as Harry’s future on TV, the place of jazz in Harry’s life and what’s on deck in Connelly’s next book.
An exclusive preview excerpt of Robert Crais’ new stand-alone novel, “Suspect,” due out in January 2013.
Denise Hamilton gives us the inside scoop on bringing “Gangster Squad” to the big screen.
Otto Penzler introduces the Laura Lippman short story he chose for us – “A Good Fuck Spoiled,” about getting away with, among other things, golf.
Annie Jacobson, author of the New York Times best seller, “Area 51,” profiles Damian Lewis of “Homeland” and digs into the back story of an agency where life is truly beginning to imitate art.
Writers Val McDermid and Craig Robertson weigh in on the inaugural Scottish crime writer’s festival, Bloody Scotland, and Denise Mina takes us on a tour of her Glasgow.
“Parker” is back on the big screen, and writer Jake Rossen reflects on Donald E. Westlake's iconic character’s many celluloid incarnations.
John-Henri Holmberg explains the curious true tale of Sture Bergwall/Thomas Quick who in spite of his claim and subsequent conviction of being Sweden’s most prolific serial killer, probably isn’t.
Thank you again for your support. And please tell all of your mystery, thriller and true-crime loving friends about our magazine and how you helped bring it to life.
