RARA-AVIS: Noir Fiction: Dark Highways

Moorich: <<NOIR FICTION: DARK HIGHWAYS sounds especially interesting to me as you included one of my all-time favs, Gerald Kersh. Collecting Kersh is a challenge for an American as so much only appeared in the UK and so many short stories are uncollected. He is worth the effort.>>

Tosh: <<For instance I wasn't aware of Gerard Kersh. A writer I will check up on for sure in the near future.>>

Thanks for the encouragement guys. If you want to find out more about Kersh, pop over to my website about him <www.harlanellison.com/kersh/> which has an article, a bibliography (of both books and 100s of short stories), and even reviews of all his books from the UK and US. It is all text-based at the moment, so it's a quick site. I'm planning to do a major overhaul this Xmas, to include Kersh's family photos, articles, interviews and more info on the film Night And The City etc. I'll announce it when it is up and running. (As for Kersh's book being hard to find, I also pick up spare copies which I sell on - from reading copies to collector's editions.)

If anybody is interested, I could perhaps post one or two of the sections (they are about 1500 each) to the list. Who would you like to read about? To recap, the list is: Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Joseph Conrad, P J Wolfson, Nathaneal West, Horace McCoy, James M Cain, Albert Camus, John Franklin Bardin, William Lindsay Gresham, Gerald Kersh, Boris Vian, Cornell Woolrich, Jim Thompson, David Karp, David Goodis, Charles Willeford, Shane Stevens, James Ellroy, Derek Raymond.
