A Twist Of Noir Hits 300!

On June 11, seven months to the day that A Twist Of Noir's first story went "live" with Mark Joseph Kiewlak's WHAT A MAN WOULD DO, we hit one hundred stories, reprints and originals both, with Jake Hinkson's original SWEET DREAMS.

On October 7, with Keith Rawson's reprint of WHAT WE PRAY FOR, we hit two hundred stories.

In quite possibly the shortest turnaround I've ever seen, tonight, December 15 (at least in the States), just a little over two months since two hundred, we hit three hundred stories, with Robert Crisman's LIFE AND DEATH IN A THROWAWAY WORLD.

My thanks goes to each and every one of you, to the readers and the writers. Let's make the wait for four hundred even shorter.

Now, without further ado, Robert Crisman.

Christopher, congrats! so glad to be a part of the numbers. There's been some mighty stories put up here by some talented folk (many of which I now call friends). Keep it up, mate. On the list for the new year is a bunch more Shibata stuff & it's so good to know they have a home. Cheers and thanks, also, for joining us at the Factory.
