- The protagonists of this volume include gods and demons and monsters, A.I.s and robots and cyberpunks, and are sometimes surrounded by ghosts and visions and memories. The criminal gangs have monstrous heavies or hive minds or terrifying technologies and dystopian aspirations.
- They all share the trappings of noir.
- Updated, subverted, questioned, improved or reimagined, garnished with science-fictional, fantastic, horrific, weird, surreal or unreal elements, they go places noir itself may never have dared to go.
- Dare you go with them?
