L.A. Noire Gets A Bunch Of Cool Short Stories From Renowned Authors

by on May 3, 2011

It may be brand spanking new but interesting looking new Rockstar joint L.A. Noire has already inspired it’s own fan fiction of sorts – only this is no ordinary rubbish fanfic, it is a series of eight short stories from actual real and respected writers. God Is A Geek has more on this interesting development for you!

In honor of L.A. Noire, we are proud to announce a special collaboration with Mulholland Books and eight of the thriller genre’s best writers, L.A. Noire: The Collected Stories – a brand new anthology of original short fiction inspired by the world of the game itself.

L.A. Noire: The Collected Stories features eight short stories from renowned authors Megan Abbott, Lawrence Block, Joe Lansdale, Joyce Carol Oates, Francine Prose, Jonathan Santlofer, Duane Swierczynski and Andrew Vachss, that revisit many of the characters and cases in the game, providing a new spin to tell the tales of emotionally torn protagonists, depraved schemers and ill-fated victims – with new stories appearing on the L.A. Noire official site leading up to andthrough the May 17th release of L.A. Noire. The complete collection will be made available for digital download on June 6th through all major eBook retailers.

Today, you can read an excerpt from our first release, “The Girl” by award-winning writer Megan Abbott – as a downloadable PDF or via our online reader at www.rockstargames.com/lanoire/stories. Enjoy and look for full length stories to be released very soon.
