A VERY SPECIAL Dennis McMillan Publication: 

 Noircon 2008           Published by Dennis McMillan Pubs  2008

McMillan, Dennis (Editor - contributions from Willeford, Pelecanos, Bruen, Crumley, Connelly and many others) Fine in oversize, glossy, color wraps. This is the program from the recent Noircon held in Philadelphia April 3 to 6. This is undoubtedly the most unique program ever issued for a conference. Extremely high quality production for this this type of "ephemera," e.g., paper is #70 off-white matte finish with Smythe-sewn signatures. The 136 page program,  containing numerous B/W and color photos, was produced in a print run of 1000 copies. The document honors both author Ken Bruen, who was presented the first David Loeb Goodis Award, and Dennis McMillan, for surviving 25 years as a small press publisher of classic and collectible noir. The program includes the details of the meeting and a list of panelists who participated, with short bio blurbs for each. Other sections are: The Irish Bard of Noir - Appreciations of Ken Bruen by Fellow Writers and Fans; Fighting the Good Fight - A Tribute to Dennis McMillan and Dennis McMillan Publications; What is Noir? - A Variety of Opinions by a Diverse Budget of Practitioners of Same; A Necklace of Hickeys - two chapters from a never-published-before Willeford novel, although portions of it were modified and eventually appeared in New Hope for the Dead. (Willeford wrote this novel using an experimental approach wherein a fictitious version of Willeford addresses the reader directly and expounds on all sorts of related and extraneous topics, including a brief biography of Hoke Mosley. The author's ramblings alternate with chapters of the novel.); Dennis McMillan Publications - A Bibliography (compiled by Bob Maddox of Squid Ink Books - the bibliography is printed in full color with 40 photos of dust jackets from McMillan books).

Contributors to this publication include: Kent Anderson, Charles Ardai (Richard Aleas), Ken Bruen, Reed Farrel Coleman, Michael Connelly, James Crumley, Rick DeMarinis, Ed Gorman, Kent Harrington, Don Herron, Michael Langnas, Richard Morgan, Jim Nisbet, George Pelecanos, Gary Phillips, Scott Phillips, Bill Pronzini, Sandra Ruttan, John Shirley, and Charles Willeford. The program was designed by Michael Kellner with photography by Christopher Voelker. Copies can be signed or inscribed by McMillan. This is a must have item for all McMillan fans and collectors!
