Creative Mythographers On the Move

This the first in an ongoing series of posts highlighting the literary exploits of the contributors to Myths for the Modern Age: Philip José Farmer's Wold Newton Universe (and diverse associates who've also more than earned the sobriquet "creative mythographer").

First up is Rick Lai's
Chronology of Shadows: A Timeline of The Shadow's Exploits.

For the first time in print, Rick Lai's Chronology of Shadows (his timeline of the pulp character The Shadow) has been updated & assembled in one easy-to-read volume."

Rick has
read all The Shadow pulp novels and has done an immense amount of research. I'm eagerly awaiting the companion volume which will cover Doc Savage.

I got that volume. While I have other books on the Shadow (Duende History and Scrapbook), this one was still enjoyable.

I have his Doc chronology that was published by Aces (and a later edition on CD). I look forward to a new edition from Altus Press.
