    1. And here's another installment of Akashic's NOIR city anthology series knocked down. This time out, it's good old London - spent about 2 days there, eons ago but who doesn't know London, eh? I skipped the introduction this time around, after it started getting thick into the symbolic languageNo out and out stinkers this time, but as usual, the definition of "noir" is vague enough to encompass everything here. On the "weak" side we have: "Backgammon" by Desmond Barry to, unfortunately, open the b [...]


    2. Stories in this series are supposed to evoke the spirit of a city while showing its gritty, noir underbelly. Almost without exception the stories in this particular collection make London sound like Hell's Kitchen in NYC in the days when the Westies were running wild and cutting off people's fingers for the fun of it. It's a really violent, sadistic read. If I got paid a quarter for everytime I read the words f**k and c**t, i could take myself out for a nice dinner.


    3. There's something to the idea that certain disctinctive genres can only legitimately be created in their own era. Hard-bop Jazz from the 40s/50s, for example, really doesn't sound right when it comes from earnest practitioners in the eighties, or for that matter in 2010. Nothing against playing the standards of other eras, in whatever medium-- otherwise how could we hear Mozart, witness Shakespeare But writing a new enlightenment-era Concerto di Camera in this millenium, say, is more of a studen [...]


    4. One reason you may be interested in London Noir is because I have a piece entitled "Rigor Mortis" in here, but there's far more to the book than just that. Sylvie Simmons's contribution will instantly appeal to those who like my novels because it features a ventriloquist dummy that seems to come to life (a trope I used in "69 Things To Do With A Dead Princess") and feeders who get off sexually on fattening up women (a kink also addressed in my novel "Come Before Christ & Murder Love"). This [...]


    5. London Noir Capital Crime Fiction bejesusMon, June 01,2009 07:08:47AMEdited by Cathi Unsworth.This collection of short stories is edited by Cathi Unsworth and features many writers that I either already read or who I have seen live and bought records by which made this a pretty sure bet.The fact that many of the stories feel more like opening chapters or in some cases middle chapters of longer works is to be expected, but worth getting for Rigor Mortis by Stuart Home and Maida Hill by Barry Adam [...]


    6. These stories contain a side of London that the Olympics don't want you to see. This is the third book I've read in the series, and the joy is discovering the demographics of each neighborhood while still being entertained by the story. Being an American, I had to research many of the terms, because it's British slang. That slowed me down and became a distraction in some of the stories. A few of them actually ventured into sci-fi I'd say, which really isn't my genre. But I did enjoy it, as I'm e [...]


    7. These stories are gritty, violent and thoroughly noir. But these stories are completely modern as well. No double crossin' dames who get taken down with a harsh word or a look from Mike Hammer. The characters in these stories are 20th century crooks and punks, taking advantage of every opportunity to get theirs. A good read, but keep the lights on and the doors locked. Whew! Scary.


    8. I am hooked on this series by Akashic Press. These stories are edited well and focus alot on the London of Camden Town, the punk movement and the dark, grimy bedsits and clubs where petty crime, drugs, disappointment and the disaffected youth collide. Recognized several of the writers and am exploring some of the others.


    9. Really patchy selection – and two or three are not crime stories at all. Two or three I found boring. Quite liked Penguin Island (Jerry Sykes), Park Rites (Daniel Bennett), I Fought the Lawyer (Michael Ward), Barry Adamson's impressionistic Maida Hell, Rigor Mortis (Stewart Home) was believably bleak and Loaded (Ken Bruen).


    10. there are some great stories in here, and some less great but a really good collection and a chance to sample some writers I meant to get around to.


    11. Cathi Unsworthin "Lontoo Noir" (Like, 2015) sisältää seitsemäntoista novellia, jotka kaikki kuvaavat Lontoota ja ennen kaikkea sen varjoisempaa ja rosoisempaa puolta. Vaikka kirja on sijoitettu meidän putiikissamme dekkarihyllyyn, eivät kaikki kertomukset ole kuitenkaan rikostarinoita.Lopputulos jää suutariksi. Novellit olivat suurimmaksi osaksi melko mitäänsanomattomia, kliseisiä ja yllätyksettömiä, enkä paria poikkeusta lukuunottamatta jaksanut pahemmin innostua niistä. Pidin e [...]


    12. Brand-new stories by: Desmond Barry, Ken Bruen, Stewart Home, Barry Adamson, Michael Ward, Sylvie Simmons, Daniel Bennett, Cathi Unsworth, Max Decharne, Martyn Waites, Joolz Denby, John Williams, Jerry Sykes, Mark Pilkington, Joe McNally, Patrick McCabe, and Ken Hollings.


    13. The stories are mildly interesting but I couldn't shake the feeling that these are new authors trying to find their voice and not succeeding. Just felt that each story was was unpolished and rough.



    14. The noir kick continues. I liked this collection least out of the ones I've read. Some of the stories made no sense at all, with a handful of good ones that saved the book
