Iceland Noir


Last year some of us went to Newcastle Noir, a one-day crime fiction event held at Newcastle’s legendary Lit & Phil, a wonderful library crammed full of books. Yes, books. Not the acres of industrial grey carpet scattered with occasional bookcases that so many libraries have become, but loaded to the gunwales with books, and not a PC in sight. But I digress…

Last year’s event was great. It was small, it was intimate and it went down well.

So this year, Jacky Collins, Mari Hannah and their cohorts have come up with something bigger and better, with a stellar line-up of crime writers. This year it’s two days, the 2nd and 3rd of May, and it looks like a weekend to remember.
