Thanks for inviting me, but I'm not to sure if I have much to offer. I do write thrillers, but not with all the gory details, well at least not yet, contemplating, I did work for a Criminal Attorney as well as The Bellevue Police Department...maybe that's a pull.
Hi, Alan. Thrilled and awed that you've put Noir Nation together so seamlessly, although I'm sure from reading your CS comments that there's been many intervening obstacles. I'll be your first fan because I respect your personal interaction, the way you've included each of us here on CS in a very personal--and personable and professional--manner. I can't wait for Issue 1.
Goin' to your site now, since I hear it's up and running.
I'll be happy to put the word out about your zine. I do have a fair few crime shorts, but nearly all of them have been previously published in magazines, anthologies etc. I've assembled a few into a collection entitled 'Psychopaths Ltd: and Other Stories'. For the moment, you can read it for free at Smashwords: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/82327
Take a look. If you're interested in using any of the stories, let me know.
Thanks for getting in contact with me. Much appreciated.
I had a little bit of a look at some of your material on the web (you don't have a website yet, yea?). I am definitely interested in maybe contributing a piece, especially given that you pay. It's not necessary to get paid but it's nice to get some compensation for ones effort.
In fact, I'm working on something now that may be up your alley, featuring a character called Max Quinlan, a Vietnamese Australian ex-cop who now makes a living finding missing people. I actually wrote an as yet unpublished novel with Quinlan set in Cambodia. Anyway there's a few details about all this on my site www.pulpcurry.com, if you have not seen it yet.
Do you have a word length that you are after in terms of stories or any other information you can send me?
Also happy to spread the word about your venture in Australia, it sounds great.
