Full disclosure: I have a story forthcoming in Akashic's May publication
SEATTLE NOIR. It's entitled "Paper Son," is historical (1889 Seattle,
Chinatown, to be exact), and has at least as dark an ending as my last piece
in AHMM ("Suicide Blonde").
That aside, I think that it pretty much depends on the individual editors
contracted to work on each of these individual collections: some (as seems
to have been the case with TORONTO NOIR) actively sought contributions from
writers outside of both the genre and the sub-genre. With others it seems
to be pretty much a mix.
Your Mileage May Vary-
