Dear NoirCon friends and family,

We are very excited to announce the launch of Retreats from Oblivion: The Journal of NoirCon! Since we weren't able to hold NoirCon 2018 as originally planned, we wanted to stay active and do something to keep the NoirCon community together. One of our favorite parts of the conference was assembling and distributing the program. It provided a platform to bring together a variety of voices and share our interests and projects. The content was as eclectic and inspired as NoirCon's participants. We want to bring this same sense of excitement and community to Retreats from Oblivion. Short stories, essays, poems, artwork, photographs—heck, maybe even some noir sea shanties! 

We just posted our first story this morning, "Easy Go" by Rick Ollerman, which originally appeared in the 2016 program.

Interested in submitting something? Email us at or read the guidelines here.

We also want to stay in touch through more frequent newsletters. If you have any new publications you'd like to share with the NoirCon family, shoot us an email at with "Newsletter Submission" in the subject line and we'll include it in the next newsletter!

As always, thank you for your continued support.

Noirly yours,
Lou and the NoirCon (and now Retreats from Oblivion
) Crew
