There's a new short fiction blog to check out. Christopher Grant has launched A Twist of Noir, which is taking submissions for crime fiction stories up to 3,000 words. There are only a couple of stories up right now, but I'm sure the number will grow as word gets out.
From the submission guidelines:
What I'm looking for are well-written, engaging and interesting crime and noir stories.
I will accept flash and short stories only; no novel-length tomes, please.
I will accept both unpublished and reprinted work. If it's a reprint, please let me know and, if possible, indicate where it was originally published.
Flash fiction up to 1000 words.
Short stories up to 3000 words.
And, of course, you retain all rights to your work.
