Reviews
There's the Vancouver of charming neighborhoods, vast verdant parks, lovely beaches and snow-capped mountains as a backdrop to it all. But the Vancouver of the newly published Vancouver Noir collection of 14 original short stories is the unsettling underside of all that -- and the project masterminds couldn't be happier.
-- "Globe & Mail"
The latest Akashic 'Noir' collection features stories by Canadian writers, both crime writers and not, residents and expats, with stories all about characters who live in gritty everyday Vancouver, BC, settings . . . For fans of the city, noir fiction, and the series.
-- "Library Journal"
Vancouver Noir is an excellent anthology that would appeal to short-story fans of all types - even those who don't read the genre on a regular basis . . . Like the earlier volumes Toronto Noir and Montreal Noir, the new anthology serves as a fantastic introduction for those unfamiliar with the genre and a reminder that Canada, bursting with amazing writers, is one of the strongest countries for crime writing in the world.-- "Quill & Quire, Starred Review"
Wiebe and the 13 other mostly Canadian contributors to this solid anthology expose the seedy underbelly that belies the Vancouver known to tourists and fans of the many films shot in Hollywood North . . . Noir aficionados will find plenty to like.-- "Publishers Weekly"
The beauty of the Akashic series of noir short story anthologies is that they offer local writers a chance to say 'here's our town.' This crop of writers, assembled and edited by Sam Wiebe, succeeds in a gritty, moody way.
