A day or two ago I picked up a copy of the just-published D.C. NOIR
(Akashic Books)edited by George Pelecanos. It looks to be a very good anthology with stories by Pelecanos, Jim Fusilli, Laura Lippman, Robert Andrews, James Grady, and several others new to me. The "new to me" category includes several that I am eager to try including stories by Norman Kelley and Ruben Castaneda. Castaneda I know from his journalism and Kelley has authored several noir novels including two with great titles BLACK HEAT and THE BIG MANGO.

This is the latest in a series of anthologies with earlier entries for Brooklyn, Dublin, Chicago, and San Francisco. Are these earlier entries worth searching out?
