If you’re an occasional gamer, like me, then you’ve probably already heard of L.A. Noire. What you may not know is that publisher Mulholland Books has partnered with Rockstar Games to put out an ebook anthology that contains original fiction from some of the best authors in the crime business (Joyce Carol Oates! Joe Lansdale! Dwayne Swierczynski! Lawrence Block!). I currently have a guest post over at the Mulholland Books site that extols the virtues of both the game and the book. It would mean the world if you dropped by and gave it a read.
If you have a gaming console and haven’t picked up L.A. Noire yet: I strongly encourage that you do so as the the price is already dropping. I’m not versed enough in game economics to know if this price drop is a good or a bad thing (I want a follow-up damn it!).
