Silver's Film Noir Reader 2!
This just in!Alain Silver and James Ursini,
editors of Film Noir Reader have recently published the Film Noir Reader
2: another critical anthology on Film Noir for publication in 1999 by
Limelight Editions. The first volume, Film Noir
Reader, was published by Limelight Editions in May, 1996.
excerpt from their web page:
The original Film Noir Reader reproduces in one volume seven seminal essays
on film noir and fourteen other articles, either long out of print or original to that
anthology, which consider many of the key films, directors, and themes of film noir. There
are also over 200 illustrations. Film Noir Reader 2 will contain eight additional
seminal articles and 16 other essays.
Silver has done more to aid understanding of film noir than perhaps any
other author. He is also co-author of the essential Film
Noir : An Encyclopedia Reference to the American Style , which
contains production credits, plot summmaries, stills, and brief analyses
of hundreds of films noirs, as well as excellent appendices which include
summaries of the Film Noir genre and a chronology. No noir enthusiast
should be without it. Silver is also the coauthor of a great book called
Raymond Chandler's Los
Angeles (with Elizabeth Ward) which features selections from Chandler's novels and short
stories paired with with photographs of the locations that inspired them.
