Phantom Chronicles 2 -- Now Available from Moonstone Books!

I'm pleased to note that Moonstone Books' The Phantom Chronicles 2 is now available.

"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!

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 creator’s Lee Falk’s daughter Diane Falk."

My story is "No Ghost Need Apply," a title which should intrigue any good Sherlockian. If you happen to have read my novel The Evil in Pemberley House (co-authored with Philip Jose Farmer), you might see some intriguing connections as well... aw hell, why be coy, this one adds another layer to the mythology behind one of the Wold Newton Family's greatest members... but even if you're a not a Wold Newton fan, or never even heard of Wold Newton, you'll be just fine. Trust me. So what're you waiting for, order it already!

Other contributors are: Harlan Ellison, Ed Gorman, Robin Wayne Bailey, Mike Bullock, Tom DeFalco, Matthew Baugh, Joe Gentile, Mark Justice, Jeff Mariotte, Joe McKinney, Nate Meyer, Will Murray, CJ Henderson, Martin Powell, and Aaron Shaps, with spot illustrations by Ruben Procopio.

Covers by
Doug Klauba (softcover) and Mark Romanoski (limited edition hardcover).
