Needle: A Magazine of Noir is no longer an active publication, but you can pick up all 10 issues right here

In 2009, Steve Weddle and John Hornor Jacobs co-created Needle: A Magazine of Noir, with Weddle as editor and Jacobs as art director. Scott Morse created artwork for the final four issues, following Jacobs’s departure.

Over the course of five years, from 2010 to 2015, Needle: A Magazine of Noir published 10 issues, thanks to the the brilliant editorial work of Stephen Blackmoore, Naomi Johnson, Matthew C. Funk, Daniel O’Shea, and Scott D. Parker, among others.

The brilliant interior design work conceived by Jacobs was a strong complement to the tight, impactful fiction within from Kieran Shea, Kent Gowran, Eric Beetner, Hilary Davidson, Cormac Brown, Nathan Singer, Chad Rohrbacher, Keith Rawson, Patti Abbott, Dave Zeltserman, Paul D. Brazill, Sandra Seamans, Christopher Grant, Eric Nusbaum, and Jedidiah Ayres in the first issue.

Future issues included a serialized novel from Ray Banks, a novella from Chris F. Holm, and numerous short stories that won awards and inclusion into the most prestigious anthologies, including multiple entries in the annual Best American Mystery Stories.
