Quoth the Raven...
The Moon Man is one of the most unusual pulp heroes. Sometimes called the 'Robin Hood of the Pulps', he is really Detective Sgt. Stephen Thatcher, who is the son of Police Chief Peter Thatcher. Upset by the injust he sees in Great City, he assumes the role of the vigilante thief the Moon Man by disguising himself behind a one-way Argus glass globe. Aided by his loyal aide, former boxer Ned "Angel" Dargan and his fiance, Sue McEwen, the daughter of the man sworn to capture him, his own boss, Lt. Detective Gil McEwen. Created by pulp author Frederick C. Davis, the Moon Man's exploits appeared in the pages of "Ten Detective Aces" for 38 stories from 1933-37. I wish someone would reprint these classic stories in a more economic volume. The 2 volumes from the Battered Silicon Dispatch Box are pretty pricey. Considering how popular the Moon Man seems to be among new pulp authors, one would think he's have been reprinted by now.
This volume contains five new adventures written by Ken Janssens, Gary Lovisi, Erwin K.Roberts and Andrew Salmon.
Of course, it helps that the character is a rather....unique creation: a 1930s-era Robin Hood-type with some science fiction overtones (mostly in his choice of mask). Each of the tales is not only entertaining in their own right, but have the right amount of pulp-era feel to them.
Granted, as another reviewer posted, these stories are too short....but if enough people buy this book, we may get a Volume 2.
And if so, I'll be first in line to purchase.
If you're looking for an easy, fun read, buy this book.
