What will Hong Kong look like in five years, ten years, or thirty years when the ?œone country, two systems??promise expires? It?™s impossible to foresee. Hong Kong?™s future may be beyond our control, but some things aren?™t. We can continue to write about our beloved city and work our hardest to preserve it in words.
When we asked our contributors to write their noir stories, we didn?™t give them specific content guidelines other than to make sure their stories end on a dark note. What we received was a brilliant collection of ghost stories, murder mysteries, domestic dramas, cops-and-robbers tales, and historical thrillers that capture Hong Kong in all its dark glory. The result is every bit as eclectic, quirky, and delightful as the city they write about.
