Crimeculture Reports on and Recommends…
Starting on 17th January, Lancaster University Library will open its 2012 Exhibition of novels from the Tom Milne Archive, focusing on the influence of mid-century American crime fiction on film noir and neo-noir. Between Friday 20th and Friday 27th January, the Exhibition will be accompanied by a free film festival, with showings of a mixture of classic film noir and post-1960s neo-noir.
Twisted Tales collaborated with TTA Press’sCrimewave magazine and Crimeculture to host the literary event “The Killer Inside You”, which fused Twisted Tales’s interest in horror with its close cousin, crime writing.
From 14th January through 11th February 2011, the Lancaster University Library showcased the recently acquired Tom Milne Archive of Popular Fiction. The exhibition contained dozens of paperback novels and pulp magazines. The collection is particularly strong on hard-boiled fiction of the 1940s and 1950s and on the writers whose work formed the core of canonical film noir.
