For those of you who don't know, Steve Weddle has got it into his head to create an ink-on-paper noir magazine. It's called Needle, a metaphoric name that indicates the type of prose you'll see within the covers: sharp, hard, and edgy. John Hornor has designed the look of the mag and it's sharp as well. Naomi Johnson and I shared editing duties along with Steve.
For more information, head on over to the Needle Mag website. There's a photo of the first issue proof here. There's a Facebook page here.
All things considered, it's something I'm looking forward to having on my shelf. And I feel proud to have a part in its creation. Thanks to Steve for inviting me along for the ride.
