RARA-AVIS: The list

From: Juri Nummelin ( juri.nummelin@postikaista.net)

I promised to Bill D. to send the whole list of nominations of the best noir since 2000. Here it is. If anyone wants to vote, go ahead and I'll count the votes. (My original idea was just to this as a sidebar to the article about new noir.) The list is in no particular order.


Ken Bruen: THE GUARDS; THE KILLING OF THE TINKERS; "anything and everything" Dan Simmons: HARDCASE, HARD FREEZE, HARD AS NAILS Daniel Woodrell: TOMATO RED, WOE TO LIVE ON, THE DEATH OF SWEET MISTER James Sallis: CYPRESS GROVE Jason Starr: TWISTED CITY, HARD FEELINGS, TOUGH LUCK, FAKE I.D.
