Jeff Deischer's Argentverse series continues with this new novel "Modern Times".  This series is an homage to the Silver Age of Comics that most of us remember.  These stories have the same types of heroic battles between Superheroes and Supervillains that we thrilled to in the 1960s and 1970s.  "Modern Times" actually takes that same spirit into the early part of the 21st Century.  It is comprised of three parts that at first seem to be separate but eventually reveal an underlying common thread.  Jeff writes a more adult type of story that is different from his earlier forays into the Artgentverse.  There are secret, twists, and surprises as the story unfolds.  If you love superheroes and comic action this is the book for you!


And as always there are exclusive revelations about other upcoming publications along the way!

Author John Breuning talks with us about his first novel "The Midnight Guardian : Hour of Darkness"  from Flinch books. This is a classic pulp hero adventure set in the 1930s in a town called Union City.  The protagonist is typical for this kind of period piece.  He uses his Yankee ingenuity, American know-how, and commitment to what is right to combat a classic pulp villain with few - if any - redeeming qualities.  This novel has had rave reviews across the internet and it is a tale that builds momentum and comes to a shattering climax.  If you are a fan of Doc Savage, The Shadow, The Avenger, or any of the other great pulp heroes, this story is for you!

Author Jeff Deischer  gives us the 4th book in his Argent universe series.  The Argent Universe is an homage to the comics of the Silver Age with which fellows like Jeff and I enjoyed while growing up.  Strange Days is an action packed novel with many plot twists.  It focuses on the "second tier" heroes of those days and brings back the type of adventure we all know and loved about the comics of the 60s and 70s.  It is an ideal summer beach book.
