KL Noir : Magic marks the resurrection of the notorious KL Noir series. This time around, editor Deric Ee selects 20 original stories that bring you through the crimes and tribulations of life in Kuala Lumpur. There will be a bar hostess with a secret, a crisis in a minibus, well-dressed pontianaks, junkies discovering a new high, vampire slayers, and even an honest taxi driver. This time round, redemption may no longer be such an elusive thing.
This is a very good short stories collection. The collection echoes through stages of life with colors and twists-- some are relatable while some are memorable. A fairly enjoyable read to me.
The collection represents on how 'magic' could exist in various forms; language, setting, characters, flaws-- unexpected yet whimsically surprising.
The best Malaysian English anthology I’ve read so far. Despite its name, there are only a few stories that involve literal magic, but the reading experience is undoubtedly magical. While some of the stories have endings that are open to interpretation, each story is a satisfying read.
The stories are varied and imaginative, a great new collection to the KL Noir series.
