> Peter Sellers and I managed to put out three
anthologies of Canuck
Noir a few short years back
How did that series do? I picked up two of them. Did it sell
internationally? Anymore to come?
I notice Akashic has a Toronto Noir at the very bottom of its
forthcoming books schedule, long after Istanbul Noir and
Lagos Noir, although I won't get depressed about the
placement because the list appears to be in alphabetical
Aside from the Canuck stuff, I'm looking forward to the
international flavour of several upcoming titles in the
Akashic series (Istanbul, Lagos, Delhi, Havana, Paris, Rome).
I'm currently thoroughly enjoying Robert Wilson's The Big
Killing and a big part of it is the West African setting. It
adds a different perspective simply because everyday norms
are so different from the usual North American or English
settings, yet it contains familiar noir themes. I'm hoping
these upcoming Akashic books will give me more of that since
I can't really think of too many noir titles set outside the
US or Great Britain.
