Being a huge fan of tattoos, I especially admire the accompanying pictures and how tattoos are incorporated into the stories; It adds a lot of substance to the book and I haven't seen anything like it before in a book - there's an element of creativity and artistic representation that add a lot of value to the book for me personally.
I especially like how the overall book is defined by a blend of different themes originating from experiences in different countries and through the perspectives of different nationalities; you can tell each author has their own distinct style and it made it hard for me to decide which ones I liked more. My favorite story though is probably Seaside Hitchhiker by Bob Thurber, there's something about the way the he writes that kept me intrigued and engaged- I highly recommend checking it out early for anyone that picks up the book.
Each of the stories is a gem. My personal favorites are Hubert Osprey's Welcome to Brooklyn, Kid, which I would describe as Grand Theft Auto, Brooklyn style, Primitive Grace by Paul Calderon, about two desperados with something valuable to sell, The Waverley Knees by Ray Banks, about a down and out in Edinburgh, and The Precipice, a tale of murder by Edogawa Rampo, translated from the Japanese. If I had to choose one, my vote would have to go to Ray Banks. This story alone is worth the cost of the anthology.
A real pitty. NOIR NATION nr One had so much promise.
