Read: "Dark Crimes" edited by Ed Gorman

Read: Dark Crimes: great noir fiction from the '40s to the '90s edited by Ed Gorman, 1991, 0881846996.

Decent. I did not like some of the stories and disagree with the noir status of some. But, like I've thought before, noir is in the eye of the beholder.

There were two short novels. The Red Scarf by Gil Brewer and Anatomy of a Killer by Peter Rabe. Anatomy had intros written by Gorman and Bill Crider. I skipped the intros. I read Pronzini's intro about Brewer.
