Philadelphia Stories

Reports continue to trickle in from this weekend’s NoirCon, being held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Brooklyn-based blogger Cullen Gallagher has a couple of new posts up, one a wrap-up of Day 2 events (including Gallagher’s conversation with “the great William Heffernan”), the other a video of critic-poet Robert Polito reading two poems by Kenneth Fearing (The Big Clock, 1946).

Meanwhile, Detectives Beyond Borders blogger Peter Rozovsky has launched a short post that features some statements he heard voiced on Day 2 of the convention. His coverage should continue at this link.

And novelist Duane Swierczynski (who, like Rozovsky, hails from Philly) promises to keep readers informed of con doings in his own blog.
