Airship 27 has published the fourth volume of their Mystery Men series. The four stories are:
A Waltz in Scarlet by Thomas Deja This story stars the Ferryman one of characters from Deja's Shadow Legion series. I have not read the Shadow Legion and knew nothing about this character until now. I think I liked him and his strange powers. The story was well written but rather slow paced.
Cult of the Strangler by Joel Jenkins This story stars The Eel and The Adder two of Jenkins regular characters. I liked this story a good bit. Lots of action and a fun story about Thuggees in the city. My only complaint is this story unfortunately could have used a bit more proof reading.
The Cult of Kali Kill by B.C. Bell Another entry from Bell starring his rather inept masked hero the Bagman. As usual with any story by Bell, it is well written and paced and easy to read. This time out The Bagman and his sidekick Crankshaft are battling a group of Indian assassins in Chicago
The Grey Mantis Strikes by C. William Russette This story stars a masked martial artist called the Grey Mantis. It is not a period piece but is set in modern times. It is also almost non-stop martial arts action with a very simple plot. I'm not much into the martial arts thing but if you are this will be a winner.
It's been a while since Airship 27 has published a new volume in its Mystery Men series. I'm glad to see this one in print. This one is a solid effort, as good as the first three.
