Just wanted to commend Tim Wohlforth on the fine job he did chairing the panel on noir at Left Coast Crime in Seattle this weekend. He had a strong group of writers to work with in Megan Abbott, Con Lehane, Cornelia Read and Edward Wright. A nice range of topics were discussed -- the flexible definition of the term, the connection with film noir, the influence of online journals like Plots With Guns and Thuglit, the role humor plays in the genre. Tim even got the weather to cooperate so that it was suitably overcast when the proceedings started. Nicely done.Vince Keenanwww.vincekeenan.comPop culture, high and low, past and present.One day at a time.
