hot off the presses is the very latest Really Big and Special issue of the original bi-monthly publication for noir movie fans; here’s what you’ll find in it:

As part of  The Dark Pages’ 10 year anniversary celebration, this issue is all about expanding your Noir-izons: in the words of editor Karen Hannsberry, it’s about non-noir that has a decided noir-like flair, and the range of contributors and works covered on this theme is really impressive:

The actors who brought Noir to Radio and why The Movie in Your Head is Best
