Fast and fun.

And what's even more surprising is the fact that while each story can be viewed as a stand alone piece, there is a nice running thread which builds the tension.

Barry manages to so effortlessly bring characters to life.

This is a collection of stories of a new neo-pulp character from writer Barry Reese. I have been reading his Rook series (he has other works as well, but those are the ones I've been reading). This character, Lazarus Gray, is sort of inspired by the classic pulp hero The Avenger. He is also set in a fictional town called Sovereign City (created by Pro Se publisher Tommy Hancock), part of the "Sovereign City" project that will see collections of atleast 2 other characters from Pro Se).

Lazarus Gray is also set in the same 'universe' as Barry's Rook character, and we get an updated chronology of his "universe" in the back of the book that places both the Lazarus Gray stories (included the next 2 volumes) plus the Rook stories and a few others by Reese.

This volume is a collection of 7 Lazarus Gray stories. Three of them previously saw print in Pro Se's now defunct "Peculiar Adventures Magazine". And the last story has a team up with the Rook that originally appeared in the Rook v6.

Who is Lazarus Gray? Well, he'd like to know as well. We find out in the first story that he woke up on the shores of Sovereign City with no memory of who he is, and with a strange medallion with the name "Lazarus Gray". He started to work to help people, formed "Assistance Unlimited" with 3 associates he helped out. As noted, this is similar to the origin of The Avenger and his Justice, Inc, but also different. He will learn more about himself in the stories in this collection.

All the stories have a supernatural element to them, and this also ties into Gray's mysterious past. In a couple of stories, Reese adds in the golden age comic book villain The Claw to his "universe". Maybe this character will return. Overall, all these stories are great.

If you like action and good old pulp stories you will enjoy this book, I thought books with characters like these were no longer being written glad I was wrong, lots of fun

I enjoyed getting to know Lazarus Gray and his Assistance Unlimited team. Barry Reese has created an interesting universe and it's well worth reading. I also read The Rook volume one and enjoyed it. If you enjoy The Avenger pulp stories you'll love Lazarus Gray!

Lazarus Gray is a character in the tradition of Doc Savage and the Avenger, a paragon with a somewhat darker past.
The style is reminiscent of the classics, but the author updates many of the standard tropes of the genre, making this a fun read but also a lesson in how clichés were made to be subverted.
Fast and fun.
And it's the first in a series!
Highly recommended.

Overall enjoyed the book. If I have a complaint it would be the repetition of the characters details and history from story to story. The stories are fun and fast paced. Looking forward to volume 2

I have read several Doc Savage and The Shadow novels from the 30s and 40s and I loved them. I was a little hesitant about the New Pulp, but Barry Reese has nailed it. I enjoyed The Adventures of Lazarus Gray even more than the original pulps that I have read.

So last week I got my first E-Book for my new Kendle. It was the Adventures of Lazarus Gray. I have long loved the Phanton, Doc Savage and of course the Shadoow, and all pulp are weighed against these giants. That said I loved it. Started reading it today and just finished the whole thing. Its stories are fresh and definatly part of the Pulp setting. That nebulous period between the great Depresion and WWII. The Characters were all wonderful, the Gad Guys were wonderfuly Bad. These characters all grow and change as you read the storys. So I couldent put it down, and I want more now that im done.
