From the Inside Flap
"Noir fiction comes in many forms, as multiple award-winning thriller and mystery writer Block points out in this stellar collection. Sometimes noir carries the trappings of the hard-boiled style--dangling cigarettes, mean streets, gunsels--but not always. These 17 original stories cross genres, styles, and settings with abandon, but they are all very dark indeed, from a James Reasoner western story to Joe R. Lansdale's chilling 'The Senior Girls Bayonet Drill Team, ' which depicts a high-school competition in which sport and butchery have joined hands. Elaine Kagan's 'Hot Pants' features a young woman caring for a father sliding into dementia (Is there anything darker than that?), while fending off harassment at work. The panic and hopelessness of her circumstances are as disquieting as it gets. Duane Swierczynski's novella depicts a couple dealing with their adult daughter's addiction and a criminal son-in-law who wants custody of his daughter. Swiercynski does a masterful job of shifting between past and present to tell his story. A fine collection that sticks to its theme while demonstrating remarkable variety."
-- Wes Lukowsky in Booklist
" I will be greatly surprised if the Lansdale, Hill, and Benedict stories do not each appear in at least one "year's best" SF, fantasy, and horror anthology."
