Two Crazy 8 Press anthologies launched at Farpoint last weekend, and they’re now on sale to the general public.
Thrilling Adventure Yarns 2022 is an anthology edited by Robert Greenberger that has 28 pulp-style stories by a variety of nifty-keeno folks, including a new story by Doc Savage creator Lester Dent, plus tales by best-selling authors Jody Lynn Nye, Diane Duane, Raymond Benson, Greg Cox, Jean Rabe, Lawrence Watt-Evans, and Steven Savile; comics creators Harvey Kurtzman, Fabian Nicieza, Alex Segura, and Michelle Sears & Bart Sears; Hollywood veterans David Gerrold and Mark Verheiden; Crazy 8 Press stalwarts Peter David, Michael Jan Friedman, Robert Greenberger (him again), Russ Colchamiro, Mary Fan, Aaron Rosenberg, Paul Kupperberg, Hildy Silverman, and Geoffrey Thorne; as well as Jenifer Purcell Rosenberg, Lucienne Diver, Caitlin Rozakis, and pulp master Will Murray. Oh yeah, and also me: I wrote “Ticonderoga Beck and the Stalwart Squad” for this one, and it’s one of my favorite stories of mine.

Phenomenons: Season of Darkness is the second volume in the incredibly nifty shared-world superhero anthology created by Michael Jan Friedman. As with the first volume, subtitled Every Human Creature, my story in Season of Darkness is about Luminosity, the hero of the Bronx who can control lightwaves, but it’s also a big-ass team-up that includes Michael A. Burstein’s Red Sky, Mary Fan’s Sarcastic Fringehead, Aaron Rosenberg’s Black Hat, and Dan Hernandez’s La Colosa y La Particula. Besides my tale, entitled “This Little Light of Mine,” and stories by Michael, Mary, Aaron, and Dan featuring their heroes, as well as two yarns by editor MJF, there are stories by Russ Colchamiro & Hildy Silverman (a two-part tale featuring Penny Trouble and Syntax), D.H. Eisenberg (featuring Neutrino), Alex Segura (La Sombra), Robert Greenberger (agents of the Cyber Engagement Division), Paul Kupperberg (Torque), Peter David (Professor Paracelsus), Ilsa J. Bick (Darya and her pack), Marie Vibbert (Lipstick Lily), Glenn Hauman (<null>), and Geoffrey Thorne (Rascal).
