    Rob Thomas is the creator and executive producer of the critically acclaimed drama Veronica Mars. He is a former script writer for television shows Dawson's Creek and Space Ghost Coast to Coast and the film Drive Me Crazy. He lives in Los Angeles. 
    Neptune Noir is a collection of essays on the hit drama Veronica Mars, and is not authorized by CW, the creators or producers of Veronica Mars, or any entity associated with the show.
    More than just a high school drama, Veronica Mars is a smart and savvy teen detective show that offers complex mysteries and rapier wit, engaging social commentary, and noir sensibilities—with the occasional murder thrown in for good measure. This collection, edited by the creator and executive producer of the show, offers supreme insight into the class struggles and love stories of the series. Essays by top writers intelligently address a multitude of questions, such as Is Veronica a modern-day vigilante? Why is a show that features rape, potential incest, and a teen girl outsmarting local authorities so popular with America’s conservative population? and Why is Veronica and Logan’s relationship the most important story-driving factor in the show?

    • Neptune Noir

      Since Veronica Mars was cancelled, Tuesday nights just haven't been the same. This book, Neptune Noir, makes the loss of this series all the more painful. Although I always thought I was well outside the demographic audience for this show, apparently there were many other mature adults who enjoyed this series. They have contributed some insightful, serious, funny, and intriguing essays about the characters, plots, psychological motivations and many reasons Veronica Mars was something very special for TV. It made me want to run out and get the DVDs, if for no other reason than to give Logan another chance. At least now, I understand why Veronica and Logan were destined to be together. And Rob Thomas' comments leant even more information about the nature of this unique series and its intriguing characters. Read it - you'll love it!
