Noir Collections, Old and New

From Dave, this morning:
This pulp/noir 1946 magazine has survived for about 66 years and we have just listed it on ABE Books. One of the authors in Short Stories Magazine is Frank Gruber, a pulp author who passed away in 1969. I was a collector of the books in his Simon Lash series. We love the pulp/noir cover of the magazine. You never know what treasure you will find at Kingdom Books. Great items for the holidays!
Thanks, Chief!
Here are some others that I see on the shelf at the moment:
James Ellroy, L. A. Noir
George Pelecanos, D. C. Noir
Ed Gorman, ed., The Big Book of Noir
Anthony Neil Smith, ed., Plots with Guns: A Noir Anthology

‘Every story is really well-written and each brings its own charms and surprises. The stories are really varied - touching, menacing, chilling, sad, violent - but what they all have is honesty and immediacy... Really good stuff. STC Technologies
