I have four contributions:
- "Iron and Bronze" - cowritten with Christopher Paul Carey
- "The Eye of Oran"
- "Les Lèvres Rouges"
- "The Vanishing Devil"
The stories by latter-day writers utilize Ardan as a pastiche stand-in for Doc Savage.
Those who are sharp-eyed or versed in popular fiction will pick up references from Jules Verne, Sax Rohmer, Ian Fleming, H. Rider Haggard, Walter Gibson, J.-H. Rosny Aine, Philip José Farmer, Pierre Benoit, Albert Camus, Harry Kumel, Leo Malat, Dave Stevens, Vladimir Volkoff, H. P. Lovecraft, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, among others.
The latter three tales listed above were among my first published stories. They were not rewritten for this volume. Be kind. :-)
