Santa Cruz Noir by Susie Bright (Editor)
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 4.5 MB
Overview: From the introduction by Susie Bright:
Every town has its noir-ville. It’s easy to find in Santa Cruz. We live in what’s called "paradise," where you can wake up in a pool of blood with the first pink rays of the sunrise peeking out over our mountain range. The dewy mist lifts from the bay. Don’t hate us because we’re beautiful—we were made that way, like Venus rising off the foam with a brick in her hand. We can’t help it if you fall for it every time…
"If I lived in a place like this," visitors often say, "I’d wake up with a smile every day."
Oh, we do, thank you for that. There’s no beauty like a merciless beauty—and like every crepuscular predator, she thrives at dawn and dusk. You’re just the innocent we’ve been waiting for, with your big paper cone of sugar-shark cotton, whipped out of pure nothing. We have just the ride for you, the longest tunnel ever. Santa Cruz is everything you ever dreamed, and everything you ever screamed, in one long drop you’ll never forget.
