Just in time for the Sci-Fi Channel’s Phantom movie!

And just in time for the Seth Rogan Green Hornet movie!

15 all new prose stories, with spot illustrations.

Since 1936, The Phantom has been thrilling audiences who crave adventure!

Nearly five centuries ago, during a daring raid at sea, pirates took the life of merchant ship captain Christopher Standish. In the heat of the pitched battle aboard the ship, Standish’s son was knocked overboard to wash ashore on a remote beach. After stumbling upon the body of his father’s killer, young Standish swore an oath on the murderer’s skull to devote his life, and the lives of his sons and their sons, to the destruction of piracy, greed, cruelty and injustice.

To the outside world, this man, seemingly immortal, has always worn the mask. As the legend grew, it transcended the life of any one mortal.

And that legend became THE PHANTOM!

For the VERY first time anywhere…this book will have the first team-up ever of the Phantom and the Green Hornet…written by master wordsmith Harlan Ellison!

High adventure and intrigue in the African jungle, on the high seas, and in the streets! There is always justice that needs to be served, whether it’s in the present…or the past.

With an introduction by the Phantom’s creator’s daughter Diane Falk!

Plus... check out this online preview of The Phantom: Ghost Who Walks #0!

My tale is called "No Ghosts Need Apply" and features The Phantom of 1899 in a London adventure.... The Phantom is a long-time favorite and it's a real thrill to contribute to his chronicles. :-)

Ellison and Gorman! You are in August company
Say what you like about Harlan, but he may have been one of the few people with enough clout to get permission to write a Green Hornet/Phantom teamup

Sean Levin said...

I agree with Art 100%. So, any chance of crossover references in your story? Or would that be telling? :)

Win Scott Eckert said...

Sean, I think it's fair to say that there are crossovers... a couple names you will instantly recognize, and a couple others, very intrinsic to the plot, and yet extremely subtle; putting these latter ones together will require detective work (i.e., some literary archaeology ;-) on the part of the reader.

But readers not inclined to delve into literary archaeology will still be able to understand the tale on its face.
