Always great to open a package and find new books inside.

Back Cover
I received my copies of The Avenger: Roaring Heart of the Crucible from Moonstone Books today. This is a gorgeous anthology of stories by some truly talented writers and artists. It also contains a story called "Lone Justice" by me. I hope you'll check it out.

You can find out more about the book below.

I will have copies (as seen above) on hand at the Alabama Phoenix Festival on Memorial Day weekend. I hope to see you there.


Moonstone Books has released a new anthology called The Avenger: Roaring Heart of The Crucible at their website. The book does not yet show available at on-line retailers as yet, but should be available there shortly.

I have a story in this volume called “Lone Justice.”

More details as soon as I have them.

The greatest crime-fighter of the 40′s returns in a third thrilling collection of original, action-packed tales of adventure, intrigue, and revenge. Life was bliss for millionaire adventurer Richard Henry Benson until that fateful day crime and greed took away his wife and young daughter… and turned him into something more than human. Driven by loss, compelled by grief, he becomes a chilled impersonal force of justice, more machine than man, dedicated to the destruction of evildoers everywhere. A figure of ice and steel, more pitiless than both, Benson has been forged into an avatar of vengeance, possessed of superhuman genius supernormal power. His frozen face and pale eyes, like a polar dawn, only hint at the terrible force the underworld heedlessly invoked upon itself the day they created… The Avenger!
