There are a million stories in the naked city of Rockstar's L.A. Noire, and the game can only tell so many. That's why Rockstar has recruited eight of the thriller genre's finest writers to create L.A. Noire: The Collected Stories.
L.A. Noire's Los Angeles is a city teeming with intrigue and corruption. Around every corner there's a plot brewing, be it for money, mayhem, or murder. It takes top talent to bring this sort of dark city to light, and Rockstar has recruited some of the best for The Collected Stories.
Between now and the May 17 release date of the game, short stories by Megan Abbott, Lawrence Block, Joe Lansdale, Joyce Carol Oates, Francine Prose, Jonathan Santlofer, Duane Swierczynski and Andrew Vachss will be appearing on the L.A. Noire stories page. The series kicks off today with an excerpt from Megan Abbott's The Girl. The full series will be available for download at major eBook retailers on June 6.
I can't wait to see what the writers whose work in-part inspired L.A. Noire do with Rockstar's little world.
