a joy to come back to again and again.
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.
