Just posted The Shadow Fan Episode 10 — I review an episode of the old radio series and then go in-depth in my thoughts about Masks # 1 from Dynamite. I won’t hold you in suspense — I loved it!

Today’s art is from Gravedigger and is by the talented Will Meugniot. The bad guy in the image is known as Thanatos and he’s not a very nice fellow. He has a surprising tie to a character that will appear in The Adventures of Lazarus Gray Volume 4, too, but if miss it, you won’t be harmed. But if you notice it…. then you’ll throw your hands up and say, “That Barry Reese guy! He’s amazing in the way he ties these little details together!”

Or something like that.

Finally got my plaque from this year’s Pulp Ark Awards — my short story, “The Devil’s Workmen,” won for Best Short Story. I have it displayed on the mantle now. Winning was cool enough but winning for an Avenger story that I wrote? Even better!

I’m about 13,000 words into the Liberty Girl story. It’s going to appear as one of Pro Se’s digest books so 30,000 is the maximum length. I should hit that with no problem. After that… I’m torn about what I’ll work on next. If you have a favorite, let me know! I need to: write a Phantom Detective story for Airship 27; write the second Lazarus Gray story for Volume 4; and I need to write a Rook story for Tales of The Rook Volume 2. Decisions, decisions!
