Akashic Noir

Since 2004 Akashic Press have published anthologies of noir short stories, each collection set in a particular city. The first installments focused on US cities but the range quickly expanded to feature cities around the world, edited by writers from that community with many stories being commissioned specially for the range, as well as some anthologies of classic stories.

As you will see below, I have only written about a very small fraction of the range. Of these collections I found Kingston Noir and Prague Noir to be the most satisfying and diverse in style but in each collection I have found at least a few stories that I found worth the read.
