|Easter Eggs. Why did it have to be Easter Eggs?|
|That guy was named "X"|
Airship 27 Productions has announced that volume 4 of the publisher’s Secret Agent X anthology series is now available for purchase. What does Secret Agent X’s latest adventure have to do with the adventures of Lance Star and the Sky Rangers, you ask?
And believe it or not there's an answer.
Even though each story can be read on their own, and even though Lance Star’s story came out first, Lance Star's "One Shot!" is a sequel to Secret Agent X's "Mountain Men of The Lost Valley."
I’ve got an answer for that too.
The Secret Agent X tale was actually written first, in 2007 as a matter of fact. While the wait to get X’s adventure in The Lost Valley was lengthy, it wasn’t due to any fault or other reason. Sometimes in publishing, stories sit for awhile. Neither writers nor publishers like it, but it happens. It’s just the nature of the business. I’m just happy that it has finally made it into the hands of readers.
|The original Agent Palmer.|
I have a soft spot for planting these little Easter Eggs throughout my various stories. While the casual reader might not notice them, those who read a lot of my stories will start to see tiny threads that tie them (not all, but most) to the same world. For instance, FBI Agent Harold Palmer is the main character in my novels Evil Ways and the upcoming Evil Intent. Harold’s great grandfather was a G-Man working for the State Department then later the War Department during WWII. This Agent Palmer has made appearances in Lance Star: Sky Ranger “One Shot!” (BEN Books), the upcoming Lance Star novel “Cold Snap” (Airship 27), and The New Adventures of The Eagle “Lights! Camera! Sabotage!” (Pro Se’s Pulp Obscura). Who knows where he might show up next?
