a joy to come back to again and again.
In fact, one Kenneth Robeson, Will Murray, pens a tale in this tome. "The Changeling" is typical Murray, class and suspense all the way. The stories presented in this book are:
The Flames of Tragedy
East Wind, Rain
Happy Death Men
Vengeance is Mine
The Devil's Workmen
The Breath of Destruction
Devil's Dark Harvest
The Medicine Murders
The Blood Moon
Having read every tale in the book, I am very impressed with the variety of themes, and insight into Richard Benson. The origin of Mike and Ike, is very compelling. Happy Death Men, Vengeance, Inc and Snow Blind are just three of my top 5 in this collection.
Fans of pulp, and fans of the Avenger SHOULD buy this book. A hidden hero, is a dead hero. The Avenger will always live!
The hard part about writing these reviews especially with the second volumes is trying to come up with something different to say about the anthology as a whole, the truth is Moonstone and their editorial team are doing a great job and all the stories are exciting and interesting.
The Avenger is an interesting character and all of the writers obviously have a great affection for the character and his world. Richard Henry Benson (the Avenger) had a rich history as an adventurer before he became The Avenger and it's good to see that several of the writer's have utilised that history but equally nice is that new menaces are also being created for The Avenger and Justice Inc to battle.
The stand out tales (for me) were Ron Fortier's Vengeance is Mine covering the origins of The Avenger's weapons Ike and Mike, Win Eckert's Happy Death Men teaming The Avenger with Domino Lady and The Blood Moon by David Michelinie teaming The Avenger with The Spider.
Another fine example of New Pulp and well worth reading.
A number of fine writers contribute stories to this volume, including Will Murray, Mark Ellis, Win Scott Eckert, Ron Fortier, and Howard Hopkins among others I wasn't at all familiar with. All know their business though.
In the stories are a number of references fans of both pulp and comics will recognize. One story opens with a murder in The Cobalt Club. The club is also mentioned in a second story. Mention is made of the U.S.'s only success in creating a super soldier. Characters in another entry are named John Carter and a twelve year old boy named Billy Batson.
My favorite piece was a novella teaming The Avenger up with Richard Wentworth, The Spider, in a side-by-side battle with the King of The Vampires. Two more different heroes couldn'te brought together. The Spider uses his twin .45s against his opponents and The Avenger goes out of his way to not deliberately kill anyone.
Excellent set of short fiction.
