'Two novellas releasing in the month of July!
First up is the Green Hornet story "The Hornet and the Purple Reign.
This one is a labor of love because I really enjoyed showcasing Britt Reid's dual nature as journalist and crime-fighting hero masquerading as a villain.
The two-part story builds on some of the mythology created in "The Hornet's Big Score," the first Green Hornet novella I wrote for Joe Gentile at Moonstone Books.
I think it's one of the best tie-in stories I've ever written.
The Bass Reeves story in the new collection started out with a creepy idea I had. I wanted to mix Western action with a touch of the macabre, and I think I succeeded with "The Dead of Night."
I used the home invasion scene in Night of the Living Dead as inspiration, folded in a smidgen of gothic ghost story, and pulled it all together with a life-or-death brawl.
PS--If you haven't listened to the latest Deathlands novel I wrote for GraphicAudio, you're missing out on some fun and excitement. This is one of the more twisted visions I've created for that series.
Our heroes are put through a nautical nightmare that fans of H. P. Lovecraft would enjoy!

"Political intrigue gives way to no-holds-barred military action in the high-octane third installment of Odom’s Makaum War series, following 2015’s Guerilla."
