So one of the major program thrusts I have set for this year is a gaming/literature connection.  I truly feel that games not only increase some young adult interest in reading and math, but that by highlighting the connections, we do more to increase the appreciation of games as a viable genre of entertainment.  With all that being said, Rockstar Games has just made me excited...AGAIN.
Premiering TOMORROW, June 6, 2011, Rockstar Games and Mullholland Books
will be releasing eight original short-fiction stories based on the case files found in the game LA Noire.  Authors include Lawrence Block, Duane Swierczynski, Joe R. Lansdale, Jonathan Santlofer, Joyce Carol Oates, Francine Prose, Megan Abbott, and Andrew Vachss.  These are no little names!
Get full details here: Noire Stories
For gamers who loved the setting and feel of Noire, it will be hard to resist the chance to revisit their favorite criminals and cases.  
And the best part of it all...they're all absolutely FREE downloads!
Even if you haven't or don't plan on playing the game, if you're a fan of the post-war era, check out these books and get a taste of what those playing the game have been experiencing.
