Wild Cat Books has announced it will soon begin a series of pulp anthologies made up of all new stories focusing on one specific, classic pulp hero. The brainstorm of editor Ron Fortier, the first volume will star LANCE STAR, SKY RANGER in four brand new tales by pulp experts and writers Bobby Nash, Bill Spangler, Frank Dirscherl and me. The book features three beautiful black and white spot illustrations per story, and a brand new cover painting by graphic artist, Rich Woodall. Coming July 2006 from Ron Hanna's Wild Cat Books!
Here is Rich Woodall's portrait of Lance Star.
I'm very pleased to be involved in the Lance Star project. My story, "Shadows Over Kunlun," deals with the search for a long-lost Great War air ace, and takes Lance and his Sky Rangers to San Francisco and Tibet. If you're unfamiliar with Lance Star, he's a long-forgotten air hero whose adventures were briefly published in Canadian pulps in the 1930s.
As you can see from the book cover, this is a class-act group of talent, and I'm honored to be a part of it.
