  1. Great list! Also check out the Megan Abbott-edited anthology, A HELL OF A WOMAN (2007), featuring Cornelia Read’s Shamus Award-winning story, “Hungry Enough,” Daniel Woodrell’s Edgar & Anthony Award-nominated story, “Uncle,” and an appendix of over 50 pages of essays by top crime writers on their favorite female noir pioneers, films, books, and characters. As the CHICAGO TRIBUNE put it, “[The] 51-page appendix honoring female pioneers of noir fiction and film… is worth the price of the book alone.” Enjoy! 🙂

    Megan Abbott really is one of today’s most original and talented crime writers!!
