    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-
