Phoenix Noir Signing Party

For a place with an overall IQ of about 32 – to judge by all the shotgun-toting boobs sporting Sheriff Joe bumper stickers – Phoenix has an ace literary scene. Many of those same redneck yahoos who try to run you off the road every morning run amok in the pages of the new Phoenix Noir, the latest in New York-based Akashic Books’ noir-anthology series.

The book, which launches at the Poisoned Pen, features dark, twisted turns by nationally noted scribes including Diana Gabaldon, Luis Alberto Urrea, and Lee Child. Contributors scheduled to attend the party include editor Patrick Millikin and writers Charles Kelly, James Sallis, Robert Anglen, and Stella Pope Duarte.
