Fast Women and Neon Lights: Eighties-Inspired Neon Noir Anthology: Meet the Authors

Neon Noir Anthology Facebook event headerSo as many of you have read or heard online by now, our first themed anthology has been announced! In addition to the three issues of Crime Syndicate we put out each year, we will also be putting out one themed anthology each year, which includes a handful of submission-based stories alongside solicited stories from some of our favorite authors writing crime fiction today.

This year’s theme is “Fast Women and Neon Lights: Eighties-Inspired Neon Noir.” You can read more about the theme and guidelines as well as where to submit HERE, but in the meantime we’re proud to announce the participating authors.

The anthology will feature a forward written by pulp fiction writer and “B” movie aficionado, Will “The Thrill” Viharo. We’re thrilled to have Will on the project (pun intended), as his encyclopedic knowledge of old movies, styles, genres and aesthetics is second to none, and  his work was a portion of the inspiration for this anthology. Will will also be contributing his own short story to the mayhem as well!

Authors who are contributing stories include:

Tom Pitts

Dietrich Kalteis

Sam Wiebe

Kat Richardson

Steve W. Lauden

Eryk Pruitt

Greg Barth

Jen Conley

Chris Dewildt

Sarah M. Chen

Will Viharo


Crime Syndicate Editor-in-Cheif Michael Pool will be editing the anthology, as well as contributing a story to the fun. We have several more authors TBA, as well as a minimum of five slots in the anthology to be filled through submissions (Submit HERE). We’re incredibly excited for this theme, and you can expect amazing, ridiculous stories that absolutely make you pine for the eighties!
