Iced: The New Noir Anthology of Cold, Hard Fiction
Kerry J. Schooley, Peter Sellers
Insomniac Press, Nov 2, 2009 - Literary Collections - 190 pages
If you're looking for foggy, dimly lit alleys echoing with the click-clack of a dame's high-heeled shoes, where a mook stiffs you for a drink, and where a glance can kill, look no further. Iced is the best in contemporary Canadian noir fiction. Sixteen stories from both award-winning veteran crime writers and a new generation of gritty urban authors, Iced boldly defies the notion that Canadians are nicer than everyone else. Isolation, anxiety, and survival OCo staple themes of CanLit OCo are the foundations of noir. These powerful narratives feature street-savvy protagonists and corrupt characters struggling to find order, meaning, or maybe even redemption in a world of corruption, lust, mystery, and revenge. A world that's been Iced."
