LOOKING FOR MONSTERS? WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED?


How gorgeous is this? Mechanoid Press Publishing's James Palmer shared the preliminary cover art for the upcoming League of Monsters anthology. It's beautifully illustrated by the award-winning Mark Maddox and will be winging its way to you soon-ish. I have a story in the anthology and it's going to be a fun one. Stay tuned for more details as I have them. #LeagueOfMonsters #ComingSoon

My story in League of Monsters is called "Sanctuary Moon" and plays with an idea I've had bouncing around in my brain for some time now. The idea was originally planned for the sequel to Operation: Silver Moon, but alas, that doesn't look to be happening so I used it here. Same universe, I guess.

Will keep you posted.

WE LOVE READER REVIEWS! IN THE WIND CATCHES 4 STARS!

WE LOVE READER REVIEWS! Big thanks to Nicole Smith for her kind words and 4 Star review of In The Wind - A Tom Myers Mystery, the first book in the Tom Myers series. You can find it now in paperback, ebook, and audio. Get an autographed copy HERE. Published by BEN Books.

Book review: In The Wind by Bobby Nash
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I finished book #12for2023 today. My first physical book of the year. This was what felt like a slower-paced mystery and I loved it. I felt like I was a resident of Sommersville, GA and had to know what was next.
The book description reads:
“A safehouse ablaze.
Four dead federal agents.
A missing federal witness.
Two wounded agents clinging to life.
Another day at the office for Sheriff Tom Myers.“
Sheriff Tom Myers and the other characters were likable. The missing witness, Bates Hewell, annoyed the heck out of me for causing so much havoc. The other “not so good” guys made me wish they got everything that was coming to them. I noted 4 major action scenes and they did NOT disappoint. This is the first fiction book I tabbed because there were several characters introduced and I wanted to keep everyone straight. I could see this book as a series on Netflix. Kudos to the author and can't wait to get more books at the next event.👍🏽

A.I. TRAVELER...

I found this quite interesting. Thanks, Joel.
--
Repost Joel Kahn: My Linkedin connection Bobby Nash is a prolific author. I took the title of his book "Freelancer: The Traveler Sanction" and plugged the phrase into an AI art program. Below is the result. Perhaps this could become an entirely new character and story line for Bobby to work with.....

The A.I. stuff is fascinating. I don't foresee it replacing artists, but it was interesting to see what Joel did with this.

WE LOVE READER REVIEWS AND TALL TALES!

Big thanks to Kevin Findley for the kind words and 5 star Amazon review of Aym Geronimo and the PostModern Pioneers: Tall Tales, which is currently on sale at 45% off cover price! You can read the full review HERE or below.

"My Favorite Super-Heroine is Back in Action! FIND IT! BUY IT! READ IT!

I know that is usually the final line in a reviews but I love this book that much!

I've been a fan of Aym Geronimo since I read her first story in Shooting Star Comics. As I used to say way back then, she could be Doc Savage's granddaughter, but she's cooler than that. If you haven't had the opportunity to read those original comic books, begin searching through your local comic bookstores or favorite online back issue specialists. Okay, on with the review.

This series of short stories carry on the grand tradition of those original tales. Between reading their prior efforts and hanging out at the old Dixonverse website, I'm familiar with nearly all of these folks on some level so reading them felt like going home for Thanksgiving without the bad weather or political discussions that spill out into the backyard. I can't review them all here, but each one should be read and enjoyed by all. Here is a peek at three of them.

"Chopper Hop Boogie' by Sean Burnham is a perfect start to this volume. Aym, with Odd (my favorite of the Post Modern Pioneers) and remote assistance from Granny, fights and defeats cyborg henchmen sent from Aym's greatest nemesis. Did I mention she does most of this while suspended mid-flight between two helicopters? Yowza! Sean hits us with a perfect blend of Aym's physical and mental skills that show she is this world's premier adventurer and hero.

"Aym Geronimo and the Valley of the Golden Tears" by Bobby Nash is a superb tale that could have been written by the late Edgar Rice Burroughs himself. The macguffin here is an underground lake of molten metal that just might be the perfect energy source for the world. Bobby introduces us to Aric Powers (mega maniacal corporate villain) who isn't quite as bad as he first appears. What saves Aym and stops Powers is a recuring meteor strike that goes back beyond written history.

"God's Games" by Tommy Hancock may just be my favorite tale. Besides Aym, the primary characters are 'Odd' Delacroix and a certain original Pulp Hero who can't be named in the story but I referenced in one of the above paragraphs. Aym and Odd battle flying, BatNazis and then take on perhaps the maddest of all mad scientists since Victor Frankenstein himself. Seriously, this guy could give Walter Bishop from Fringe a run for his money.

Every other story in this volume is a gem, with straight up adventure tales and a number of stories that help fill in the background of many of the Pioneers. Even Aym and Wind's Father and Grandfather get some page time. Fantastic work by all.

My only gripe is that Aym's father, John Morgan 'Bat' Neal did provide a story himself. I understand he's busy with some type of cross-time, inter-dimensional device that scavenged parts from an old phone booth and a car, but that's still no excuse. Perhaps he can submit one if there is a second volume. I suggest a tale of fighting a Communist robot that was awakened from its fifty years of electronic sleep. All of this should happen on top of a speeding train of course.

You done good John. After all these years, she is still my favorite super-heroine."


Thanks again, Kevin.
