This issue of NOIR CITY has greater diversity than ever -- Imogen Sara Smith's cover story celebrating Jean-Pierre Melville's centenary, Jake Hinkson's article on French crime writer Georges Simenon, Ray Banks' spectacular Windrush Noir detailing Britain's post WWII racism in Pool of London and Sapphire, plus... insightful and accurate histories on actress Linda Darnell and Hollywood screenwriter Frank Fenton. We've got contemporary noir covered, too, with a report on the TV show Peter Gunn, and Nathalie Atkinson reporting on comic publications at Hard Case Crime. This quarter, The Dark Page, dedicated to contemporary crime fiction and penned by crime and mystery writer Eric Beetner, interviews writer and editor Sarah Weinman (Women Crime Writers: Eight Suspense Novels of the 1940s and 1950s) . And in NEWS, the Film Noir Foundation has a new 35mm film restoration to premiere at NOIR CITY 16 in January! VIEW THE ISSUE'S TABLE OF CONTENTS.
