The incomparable Will Murray's latest book is the first novel featuring Patricia Savage as the hero.  Pat is the younger cousin of her more famous relative, Doc Savage. She as tried to become a part of Doc's life of adventure but he has been reticent about including her too deeply into the dangerous world of adventure in which he lives.  But Pat is cut from the same cloth as her cousin.  She longs for adventure and like Doc, it often reaches out to get her.

The story of Six Scarlet Scorpions starts out with Pat flying down to Tulsa, Oklahoma to invest in some oil lands.  She brings with her Monk Mayfair who had been raised in Tulsa and we learn many things about his early life. As usual, even when they are not looking for trouble, it finds them and so begins a story with many sharp turns, surprises, and troubles galore for our heroine.  This is a story you don't want to miss!

Will also talks about other projects which are on going including a team up between Doc Savage and The Shadow!

Jeff Deischer's latest book, "Mystery Men" is a triptych of short interconnected stories describing the period of transition from the pulp hero world to the world of comic heroes.  Each story highlights the adventures of a new hero struggling to save the world as it evolves around them.  Through these three stories, there is a common thread and a few surprises along the way.  Enjoy the stories as the heroes Crimson Crusader, Karma, and Dr. Stellar pave the way to the new future of adventure.

Jeff captures the thrill of the pulps and the emerging excitement of the larger than life super heroes.  This is the sixth book of the Argentverse series which is an homage to the Silver Age of Comics which we al have known and loved.

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!
