"Great stories in the great city of New York, where anything can happen and usually does. Highly recommended." The Rap Sheet
"Dark City Lights: New York Stories (Three Rooms Press, out now), edited by Lawrence Block, gathers 23 original short stories by fiction writers (including Block, a bestselling mystery novelist), screenwriters, actors and others, all set in the city. . . . Thrilling to comic, from a visit to a Garment District shop by Marilyn Monroe to an invasion of Central Park by space aliens . . . Nicely twisted . . ." --Tampa Bay Times
A gritty new noir collection.” --am New York
"It is a given that New York will never exhaust itself as a setting for stories, and each of the tales selected for DARK CITY LIGHTS finds a different vein to mine from that very large and diverse mountain . . . One cannot ask for better." --Bookreporter
"Ed Park’s Amsterdam in the 90s” offers a creepy beginning story. The Big Snip” by Thomas Pluck is a well-researched, entertaining tale about veterinary technicians . . . Warren Moore’s Bowery Station, 3:15 A.M.” is a shocker. As promised, New York City could be considered a main character in these tales." --Reviewing the Evidence
