L.A. Noire: The Collected Stories - Megan Abbott,  Lawrence Block,  Joe R. Lansdale,  Joyce Carol Oates,  Francine Prose,  Jonathan Santlofer,  Duane Swierczynski,  Andrew Vachss Worried about spoilers, I didn't start this anthology until I was finished with the game. In the end, I don't think it really mattered. The stories in this collection takes place in the world of L.A. Noire, but none of them were really directly related, though I liked how couple stories provided a little background information into some of the cases.

I liked most of the stories, some more than others. Nevertheless, my guess is that fans of the noir genre probably won't think much of this book, but those familiar with the game might find it enjoyable, or at the very least a fun enough read. Still, not bad for a freebie.
