Noir Nation is an eBook journal of high quality international crime fiction, essays, and author interviews, illustrated with living art: tattoos. It was founded by Eddie Vega and the late Cortright McMeel in 2011. Before his untimely passing, McMeel served as Managing Editor and Editor-at-Large.
The Journal, optimized for Kindle, Nook, iPad, and other e-readers, advances works of the literary imagination that explore the darker geographies of human experience. Its aims are two-fold: to entertain readers while deepening their insight about human nature, about themselves or about themselves if new circumstances changed them into the characters portrayed in our digital pages.
Separately, the Noir Nation Web site offers a discussion platform for all things Noir. Crime fiction writers and film noir bloggers are encouraged to share news and opinion from their respective national and artistic communities. Those who do will be listed as contributing editors in the staff section with links to their blogs.
