Hoosier Noir, Dorothy Hughes, and Philip K. Dick

Hoosier Noir: Two, the anthology of Indiana crime stories, has been out for a few days. It features Serena Jayne, Don Stoll, Zakariah Johnson, Michael Bracken, C.W. Blackwell, Stephen J. Golds, Marianne Halber, and Joseph S. Walker.

Ever so often, I come across an article that I want to make sure you read. This is one of them. K.A. Laity’s “Folk Horror Noir?” is a fantastic essay weaving through Dorothy Hughes’s “Ride the Pink Horse” (1946), a definition of folk horror noir, and the “heteronormative male gaze”.

Adrian McKinty’s essay “The Extraordinary Mind of Philip K. Dick” is well worth your time.

Here’s a list of “Weird, Bloody, Wonderful Westerns” by Sadie Hartmann.
