NoirCon 2010 is a forum where all those who appreciate noir can come together to debate, plot, boast, or simply party with like minded individuals. It is a four day journey held in Philadelphia, the birthplace of David Goodis, one of the unsung greats of Noir literature. It offers everyone involved an opportunity to have a helluva good time looking into the bottomless, downward void that is Noir.
