Friday Fun: Noir Week at

Aug 19 2011 Published by under friday fun, science fiction

All week I've been planning to feature's Noir Week series here today. Somehow it's fitting that my slightly dark mood right now is matched by the subject matter of the Friday Fun.

From the introductory post:

Welcome to Noir Week at! Join us as we escape from the sweltering dog days of summer into the cool, shadowy underworld of back alleys, jazz joints, hardboiled hooligans and tough-talking femme fatales; a world filled with violence, glamour, and intrigue, where the color scheme is black and white and the rules are anything but....

This week, we're making the most of our "And related subjects" tagline and branching out into new territory: in addition to our regular content, we've got posts on some of our favorite classic noir movies, writers, iconic characters and actors. Less a genre than a style, noir continues to be an iconic and influential force in fiction, film, and fashion and we're taking a detour all the way down to its shady, whiskey-soaked roots -- so grab your fedora, slip your pearl-handled pistol into your purse, and brush off your best Bogart impression: it's going to be a wild ride.

Here's a smattering of posts so far:

And don't forget to checkout the Index post. There's tons of great stuff on noir and especially the fantastic & science fictional noir.
