Captain Midnight Chronicles
I have a short story in the Captain Midnight Chronicles prose anthology, coming in late spring from Moonstone Books.
Captain Midnight was a high-flying aviator and adventurer, blazing through the 1930s, 40s and 50s in comics, movie serials, TV and radio. Now Moonstone has revived the character, setting his adventures in an alternate reality where Word War II didn't happen.
I had a lot of fun writing my entry, and the line-up of other writers is strong. Here's Moonstone's official announcement:
Born in the blazing crucible of war, but sworn to fight for peace, the mysterious obsidian aviator known only by the codename Captain Midnight flies again! An ace pilot, super secret agent, and astounding scientific genius, the heroic Captain Midnight ruled the radio airwaves and starred in comic books, film serials, and a classic television series. Now, when we need him most, he has returned, along with his legendary Secret Squadron, to battle spies, saboteurs, and the mercenary armies of the evil warmonger Ivan Shark and his delectably deadly daughter, Fury. Featuring New York Times bestselling aviation novelist John J. Nance, the Captain Midnight Chronicles boasts a squadron of talented contributors, including Stephen Mertz, Robert T. Jeschonek, Mark Justice, Chuck Dixon, Robert Greenberger, Trina Robbins, Tim Lasiuta, Win Scott Eckert, Howard Hopkins, and Christopher Mills.
