Lance Star--Sky Ranger now available on Amazon

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

LANCE STAR--SKY RANGER NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON.COM

If you're a pulp fan, Lance Star--Sky Ranger is for you.  Along with my
fellow writers [Bobby Nash, Frank Dirscherl, and Bill Spangler] we have crafted four tales to excite and thrill.



You can go to www.amazon.com and search for "Lance Star Sky Ranger" or follow this direct link.

My story, "Shadows Over Kunlun," has a lot of Wold Newton crossover referenecs, and and contains my answer to what happened to a particular second-tier pulp aviation hero. I hope you'll check it out.


Best,

LANCE STAR - SKY RANGER... In the summer of 1936, a new flying hero magazine was created called LANCE STAR - SKY RANGER. It was produced by the small time Canadian publisher, Dutton Press, out of Ontario. Managing Editor, Saul Kingman, wanted a title to compete with the flying titles that were popping up all over the U.S. He wanted a title that would join the ranks of such pulp heroes as G-8, DUSTY AYRES and BILL BARNES...

I enjoyed reading another tale of Fu Manchu in his Natas guise, but I will confess that I do not know who the lost aviator was supposed to represent.

The long-lost aviator was The Red Falcon (real name Barry Rand) from the back pages of the pulp G-8 AND HIS BATTLE ACES. G-8 and the Red Falcon even crossed over a couple times in the original pulps.

More info on Jess Nevins' page:

and you can read about the G-8/Red Falcon crossovers when CROSSOVERS comes out in 2008. :-)

Thank you for buying the LANCE STAR book,

-Win
