If you went into this expecting a dozen Shaft knock-offs expect to be disappointed, as this book is populated by pirates, cowboys, occult detectives, a hip hip dynamic duo, space adventurers, aviators, soldiers of fortune, jungle lords and criminal masterminds.
This anthology is not just equal opportunity pulp but rather it is a collection of great pulp stories that have black characters. From the introduction by Walter Mosley to the last story The Hammer of Norgil each piece is really good. I found that Ron Fortier's The Lawman was especially moving considering that the main character Bass Reeves was a real Texas lawman who has been unsung by history just for the colour of his skin.
The characters in this anthology deserve to be just as much a part of the public consciousness as Indiana Jones, Luke Skywalker, Wyatt Earp and Tarzan.
This a collection of great new characters I'd love to see more of and great pulp stories that I will no doubt reread again.
