Call for crime fiction short stories

Trestle Press are seeking submissions for a new anthology series of hardboiled/noir stories. Here's the framing:

"Murder around the world. Is a body lying on the floor with a knife jutting rudely out of the victim's chest the same kind of murder in Calcutta, India as it would be, say . . . . in Oslo, Norway? Are the motives of a villain in Yokohama, Japan the same as might be found in Stuttgart, Germany? The art of the mystery/detective story found around the world; a treasure chest of delicious whodunits."

The call is open to novices as well as established authors. Closing date for the first round of submissions is Nov. 12, 2011. The next round cutoff is Dec 1, 2011. First come first served. Email stories to

Also a reminder: Patti, over at Pattinase, is hosting a flash fiction challenge. The task is to write a short story of less than 1,000 words inspired by the art of Reginald Marsh. Stories to be posted up by October 18th and the link sent to Patti so she can collate them.
