MysteryPeople Presents: Noir at the Bar @ Opal Divine's


Thursday, November 7 7PM

MysteryPeople Presents

at Opal Divine's featuring


The only thing most crime fiction fans love as much as books is drinking, so it only makes sense that someone would combine both. Started in Philadelphia a few years, Noir At The Bar has made its way across the country from Philadelphia to LA. MysteryPeople is giving it an Austin spin on Nov 7th at Opal Divine's on South Congress.

We'll have four of the hippest, hard boiled authors on the scene reading from and discussing their work: Jon Bassoff, Anonymous 9, and Nate Southard

So come out to Opal's (3601 South Congress) at 7PM and help us celebrate a new tradition - Austin's Noir at the Bar. 



JON BASSOFF was born in 1974 in New York City and currently lives in a ghost town somewhere in Colorado. His mountain gothic novel, Corrosion (available in October from DarkFuse), was called “startlingly original and unsettling” by Tom Piccirilli, a four-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award, and “beautifully bleak” by international bestselling author, Jason Starr. In addition to his work as a writer, Bassoff is the founder of the crime fiction publisher New Pulp Press, which was called “genius masked as genre” by New York Magazine.
ANONYMOUS-9 is the pseudonym of Elaine Ash. She adopted the pen name back in 2007 in case her experimental fiction wasn't "accepted" by the grassroots crime-writing community which was starting to surge online. When her short stories started getting nominated for awards that fear was dissapated, but her pen-name stuck. Her first novel Hard Bite was well received. She's recevied numerous recognitions including the 2012 Readers' Choice Aware from The House of Crime and Mystery, Canada; Spinetingler Magazine's Best Short Story on the Web for 2009; a nomination for the same award again in 2010; two Derringer Award nominations sponsored by The Short Myster Fiction Society; and a Thriller Award nomination by a first-round judging committee of the International Thriller Writers.
NATE SOUTHARD books include Scavengers, This Little Light of Mine, Red Sky, Just Like Hell, Broken Skin, and He Stepped Through. His short fiction has appeared in such venues as Cemetery Dance, Black Static, Thuglit, and the anthology Supernatural Noir. His short stories "Going Home, Ugly Stick in Hand" and "The Blisters On My Heart" have received honorable mentions in The Year's Best Horror, and he earned a Bram Stoker Award nomination for his story "In the Middle of Poplar Street." A graduate of The University of Texas with a degree in Radio, Television, and Film, Nate lives in Austin, Texas with his cat.
