Dark Horse and Datlow team up for ‘Supernatural Noir’

Editor Ellen Datlow’s Dark Horse follow-up to Lovecraft Unbound is on the way: Supernatural Noir is set to mash up the worlds of horror and noir in June. Check out this lineup:

“The Dingus” by Gregory Frost
“The Getaway” by Paul G. Tremblay
“Mortal Bait” by Richard Bowes
“Little Shit” by Melanie Tem
“Ditch Witch” by Lucius Shepard
“The Last Triangle” by Jeffrey Ford
“The Carrion Gods in Their Heaven” by Laird Barron
“The Romance” by Elizabeth Bear
“Dead Sister” by Joe R. Lansdale
“Comfortable in Her Skin” by Lee Thomas
“But For Scars” by Tom Piccirilli
“The Blisters on My Heart” by Nate Southard
“The Absent Eye” by Brian Evenson
“The Maltese Unicorn” by Caitlín R. Kiernan
“Dreamer of the Day” by Nick Mamatas
“In Paris, In the Mouth of Kronos” by John Langan

This one promises to be super-dark, with some of the most original voices in genre fiction participating. The combination of noir and horror is nothing new – at least a couple of these contributors, Joe Lansdale and Tom Piccirilli, have been doing it their entire careers – but it’s a given that these authors will put a unique spin on the idea.

For a behind-the-scenes peek at the process of putting this anthology together, check out this blog post at Dark Horse by Datlow. If that doesn’t whet your appetite, nothing will.
