Serie Noire

In 1945 the French publisher Gallimard brought out a line in crime fiction books called La Serié Noire. This imprint published such greats as Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammet, Chester Himes and Jim Thompson. It didn't just publish them, but it championed them and went a long ways towards supporting them and making them part of the crime canon. La Serie Noire is probably the most famous publishing house in crime fiction, and I am honoured beyond all description to have a book scheduled for publiction by them. This is like signing for Real Madrid! No, no... not Real Madrid. This is like signing for LA Galaxy!

LES ALLONGÉS comes out a month from now in France. Here is the cover (check those yellow words at the bottom!):

Ok, you haven't found the worst French publisher, sure (it's GREAT, I really mean it). But Moisson Rouge is coming to invade planet Noir...
