New Writing from Harper Perennial
The New Black is a collection of twenty neo-noir stories exemplifying the best authors currently writing in this dark sub-genre. A mixture of horror, crime, fantasy, science fiction, magical realism, and the grotesque-all with a literary bent-these stories are the future of genre-bending fiction.Table of Contents:Foreword by Laird BarronStephen Graham Jones, "Father Son, Holy Rabbit"Paul Tremblay, "It's Against the Law to Feed the Ducks"Lindsay Hunter, "That Baby"Roxane Gay, "How"Kyle Minor, "The Truth and All Its Ugly"Craig Clevenger, "Act of Contrition"Micaela Morrissette, "The Familiars"Richard Lange, "Fuzzyland"Benjamin Percy, "Dial Tone"Roy Kesey, "Instituto"Craig Davidson, "Rust and Bone"Rebecca Jones-Howe, "Blue Hawaii"Joe Meno, "Children Are the Only Ones Who Blush"Vanessa Veselka, "Christopher Hitchens"Nik Korpon, "His Footsteps are Made of Soot"Brian Evenson, "Windeye"Craig Wallwork, "Dollhouse"Tara Laskowski, "The Etiquette of Homicide"Matt Bell, "Dredge"Antonia Crane, "Sunshine for Adrienne"
