Summary The River City emerges as a hot spot for unseemly noir in this anthology with a foreword by New York Times -bestselling author Tom Robbins. A rich literary tradition sets the stage for this talented group of authors who take their inspiration from Virginia's capital city. Edgar Allan Poe has left his mark on the atmospheric town, giving its residents a taste for walking on the dark side. It's no wonder that three local writers took it upon themselves to curate this moody and menacing collection, featuring stories by Dean King, Laura Browder, Howard Owen, Yazmina Beverly, Tom De Haven, X.C. Atkins, Meagan J. Saunders, Anne Thomas Soffee, Clint McCown, Conrad Ashley Persons, Clay McLeod Chapman, Pir Rothenberg, David L. Robbins, Hermine Pinson, and Dennis Danvers. "[Fifteen] gritty and ominous tales ... The writing of Poe -- who grew up and forged a literary reputation in Richmond, and is usually credited with inventing the detective story -- may have set the stage for the town's kiss-me-deadly tradition." -- Richmond Times-Dispatch.
