Another Nice Review of Noir Carnival

"The Years At The Spring," Harry Clarke (1920).
From “The Year’s At The Spring,” Harry Clarke (1920).

At 6 Impossible Things, Catherine Hill has some nice things to say about Noir Carnival.

This anthology from Fox Spirit Books is the second book in the Noir series, edited by the impressive K A Laity. These are dark stories with noir sensibilities, supernatural flavours and the smell of popcorn, candy floss, motor oil and fear. The settings vary in place and time, and the tone shifts between spooky, thrilling, creepy, tense, fantastical and cynical. The stories rattle between fantastical crime, dark fantasy and horror, genre boundaries blurring as the book passes by, like a motley collection of caravans. There are feisty heroines, doomed heroes, dangerous villains and desperate folk of all manner, just peer through the curtain.
