I'm one of the editors for Noir Nation, and I would love to get some more stories from Australia for Issue 2  (Issue 1 will be available Sept 1, 2011).  Looking for short stories and graphic stories (comics).  Maybe you have some, and could also help spread the word?  We start reading for issue 2 on Oct 1.


Thank you,
