review 1: Like any collection, The New Black had highs and lows, but overall I liked 80% of the stories--and I absolutely loved a handful. I don't read a lot of noir fiction, so this was a cool way to branch out (plus, the collection blends genres, reaching into horror, fantasy and sci fi territory--very cool). The stories made me want to delve deeper into neo-noir writing, which is probably the highest praise I could bestow.
review 2: Richard Thomas has put together one of the best anthologies I've read in a while. I found work by some of my favorite authors of dark and genre-tempered fiction--Stephen Graham Jones, Roxane Gay, Kyle Minor, Benjamin Percy, and Brian Evenson--as well as a bevy of authors I'm now embarrassed not to have read and whose books I've already got
... more stacked on the column of to-read books growing by my desk. This is a must-read anthology for anyone interested in the melding of genre and literary fiction. less

It is an ok collection of stories. Felt more macabre and less noir though.
Great collection of stories--lots of fantastic writers here.
Each and every story alone is worth the price of this book.
