Re: RARA-AVIS: Afro-american crime writing + Swedish Noir

Etienne Borgers (

RARA AVIS in its website. During recent weeks there
was a lot of talk in this list about Iceberg Slim,
Goines and other Af-Am authors.

A good source is the pages of the American publisher:
Old School Books

There is also a website devoted to contemporary
Mystery Black writers and with other links: African Mystery Page

Also of good interest:
Black Street Fiction at:

Hope this helps (add to the valuable info already
given by other followers)

May I ask that in return you (B Eriksson) give to the
list a brief overview of the Swedish Noir scene, if
any (?).
