Noir? In Nelson? Never...
Yet every community has its hidden history, stories told only in hushed voices, or not at all.
In this collection, Nelson STEM Writers track the dark side of our past, as well as considering some of the issues our present experiences are producing.
Extending out of classic mid-century noir, linking back to Victorian Gothic, and then on into urban legend, and new forms such as ‘Scandi blanc,’ these stories extend the ‘mean streets’ perspective right across the Top of the South.
Who turned out the lights on the Collingwood Street bridge?

Did the Bassett Road machine-gun murderer jump off the cliffs in Kaikoura?
What was Chum Cleal hiding in the boot of his taxi?
And what’s going on at the Ministry of Wellbeing?
