My newest Twitter project - Genre Verticals - and how you can help

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I want to keep updated on as many aspects of noir and grotesque writing as possible. RSS readers are good, but I feel as though they don't do enough. So, I've come up with something I hope will benefit me and others too.

My idea is to set up multiple Twitter accounts, each that auto-populates RSS feeds for a variety of genre-related blogs. I will then follow that main Twitter account to get all of my literature news. On the plus side, an infinite number of other people can also follow these accounts. It's a win/win.

I am in the process of setting up Twitter accounts for each of the genres I want to follow. So far I have @NoirLiterature and @GrotesqueLit.

So, how can you help? Clue me in to some fantastic Noir and Grotesque blogs. These can be reader blogs, author blogs, academic toned blogs (actually, those would be preferable), cultural blogs (not necessarily just literature), or anything else that would make sense.

Ultimately, I would love for these accounts to be sought after, you know. Like, people with blogs would be honored to have my accounts syndicate them.

Any blogs (or any site with an RSS feed) that you can think of?
