About

The ideal is that of the golden age of crime fiction magazines, the 1950s, updated for the modern age. That means stories about criminals, committing crimes, their lives, their loves, their motivations. T There were many problematic attitudes and issues of the '50s, but the essence of crime storytelling that was perfected during that period hasn't changed: desperate people taking desperate actions to try and solve otherwise unsolvable problems. That's the essence of noir: we all have some sort of doom hanging over our heads, often of our own creation. In other words, we're all guilty , it's just a matter of degree.
