Noir Nation: International Crime Fiction updated their business hours.

It was founded by Eddie Vega, Cort McMeel, and Alan Ward Thomas in 2011.
Noir Nation: International Crime Fiction updated their business hours.
A stunning development in crime fiction: Otto Penzler has not been renewed as series editor of Best American Mystery Stories of the Year.
Was it a dispute over editorial taste and direction? Or are there unseen tidal forces and winds that will push and tug every ship of literary noir into the Bay of Nouadhibou?
To be sure, all ships in time founder or end up there. Or they get turned into reefs or museums. Nothing changes but the details.
Mr. Penzler, wherever you go, may you always have fair winds and a following tide.
The star to steer by... that, you've always had.
Noir Nation: International Crime Fiction updated their information in their About section.
Soon after its launch in 2011, Noir Nation became the globally recognized home of international crime fiction. Its content is often dark, sometimes creepy, and sometimes humorous but always at the service of the literary imagination as it explores the darker regions of human experience—where weak writing is the only crime.

Noir—the Film, a project we are following. Currently, it's in post-production. From what information is available, the film will be an homage to the crime noir and horror film traditions, with a script that explores both.
We recall the efforts not long ago of Hotel Noir, an indie film with Carla Gugino and Rufus Sewall, actors who have become closely associated with the form. Despite their competent performances and the filmmaker's clear love for the form, the result was a higher-than-average Youtube original.
Noir—the Film does not have any actors with names familiar to anyone outside of Actors Equity or SAG-AFTRA, but the premise, the script, and the cinematography — from what we've seen of them — seem far more promising.

2018 NOIR NATION GOLDEN FEDORA
PRIZE WINNERS ANNOUNCED
The Golden Fedora Prize celebrates noir literature by contemporary writers. The Golden Fedora is a medallion commissioned from the Northwestern Mint, the same mint that coins the Pulitzers, awarded to anonymous entries selected by The Editors. The prize will be awarded in several categories in different years: poetry, fiction, and film writing.
In 2018 we considered well over 1,000 poems for the prize and so made individual responses a near impossible task given the resources of a bantamweight independent journal. For writers who submitted work, please know that your work was read carefully and thoughtfully considered, and given the high quality of material, we wish we could provide public recognition for a higher number of deserving writers. In the end, consistent with the nature of literary competitions, we had to make difficult choices. Here are they are in unranked categories.

THE GOLDEN FEDORA PRIZE - FEB 15 Deadline - SUBMIT NOW
The Golden Fedora celebrates noir literature by contemporary writers. The medallion, commissioned from the Northwestern Mint, the same mint that coins the Pulitzers, is awarded to anonymous entries selected by The Editors.
Unpublished poems in English up to 30 lines in any style or form that are either darkly themed or where a crime occurs. Each poem will be judged separately and read anonymously.
Do not include the writer's name or any identifying information in the submitted documents. That information, the titles of the poems, and biographical information can be included in the Submittable cover letter.
Writers submitting haikus or Martial-style epigrams may submit up to three poems which will count as one entry for purposes of the fee structure (three poems count as one entry, six as two, and nine as three), but each haiku will be considered as a separate entry for purposes of the prize.
Poems in other languages are fine but only if submitted with translations, both of which would be published if among winners and honorable mentions.
Poems must be submitted electronically on Submittable.
Medallions to top three works. There are no first, second, or third places. There is only one place: Golden Fedora winner.
Ten or more Honorable Mentions
Publication in special poetry issue of Noir Nation in print and digital formats
Medallions will be awarded to the top three writers engraved with their names, category, and year of award. Winning entries and all Honorable Mentions will be published in a special poetry issue of Noir Nation with standard $10-$50 honoraria depending on number of entries published (we hope to publish more than one poem by entrants). All submissions are considered for publication.
Poems must be submitted by February 15, 2018. Announcements of winners will be made via the Noir Nation Mailing List (please be sure to sign up), our website, and here on our page.

NOW OUT: NOIR NATION 6
Noir Nation No. 6 continues the crime noir tradition by circling back to its 20th Century jazz roots. This issue, with 14 writers, including widely published powerhouse Gary Phillips, and Tatiana Eva-Marie, who is publishing her first story, addresses jazz and crime, jazz and temptation and the startling impulses that give them life and genius. As famed tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins said, “Music represents nature. Nature represents life. Jazz represents nature. Jazz is life.” So too is Noir a kind of view of life—raw and stripped of pretense, with dark emotions fueling even darker obsessions. There are no words that better describe Noir Nation.
Writers in this issue: JC Hopkins, Tigre Galindo, Tatiana Eva Marie, John Goldbach, Brendan DuBois, Geronimo Horowitz, Gary Phillips, Jonas Kyle, Andrey Henkin, Alfredo Meridee, Jackie Goodwin, and Ted Berg, Bill Moody
