Welcome back to Ye Olde Blog! I have a lot of things rattling around in my brain today so let’s get to it, shall we?

Uploaded episode 22 of The Shadow Fan Podcast this morning — if you’re a fan of The Shadow (and if you’re not, why the hell aren’t you?), you can join me in reviewing “The Devil Master” (September 15, 1941) and the first issue of Dynamite’s The Shadow Year One series. It’ll be a fun 40 minutes, I promise you. It actually ends up being a heavy “Margo Lane” episode because of the major role she plays in both of the featured reviews this week. I like the Margo character but I have mixed feelings about how important she’s become to the overall Shadow mythos.

Ordered Doc Savage: Skull Island by Will Murray yesterday. I’m curious to see this match-up between Doc and Kong. I’ll post a review once I’ve read it.

I’ve started writing the final chapter of Lazarus Gray Volume Four, though there may be a wrap-up chapter or epilogue to follow.

Agreed to take part in a Weird Western anthology that Mechanoid Press is putting out so I’ll be working on that as soon as I’m done with Lazarus Gray and Tales of The Rook 2.

Rabbit Heart & The Damned Thing will both be back in print within three months and both will be coming out from my Reese Unlimited imprint at Pro Se Press. After talking to Ron Hanna of Wild Cat Books, it was decided that my Ki-Gor book for them will also fall out of print. There are not plans to bring it or Guan-Yin back into print so you need to order ’em soon if you want ’em. I do want to make it clear that I wish Wild Cat Books the very best and hope that they’ll get back to printing new books soon. The New Pulp market misses them!

  1. Doc Savage and King Kong? Seriously? I need to get myself that book!
