MOONSTONE BOOKS FOR SEPTEMBER
Following are Moonstone Books' solicitations for September, with information coming from the company.
Written by Stuart Kaminsky, Jeff Rice, Stefan Petrucha and Joe Gentile; art by Godon Purcell, Christopher Jones and Doug Klauba; cover by Doug Klauba.
This volume contains 4 stories of TV's first paranormal investigator Carl Kolchak (played to the hilt by Darren McGavin in the 1970's). Thrill again to the story of a vampire in Las Vegas, which is based on the TV movie that still has one of the highest ratings of all time. This comic story was adapted from the screen by Kolchak's very own creator, writer Jeff Rice. Then, experience the terror of a small mining town that has unexplained murders, in an adaptation from an unfilmed episode of the TV show. Third, get the chills from horror/mystery novelist extraordinaire Stuart Kaminsky's Kolchak (original) tale of experiencing your worst fears. Last, but not least, there is an all-new never original Kolchak tale from X-Files scribe Stefan Petrucha.
160 pages, $17.95.
Written by Carlton E. Morse, art by Don Sherwood, cover by Mike Kowalczyk.
This self-contained graphic novel has the complete adventure tale, never seen before in its entirety, that was partially published as a newspaper strip outside the USA. Based on the lightning-paced radio script of creator Carlton E. Morse.
"I Love a Mystery" features three rough-and-tumble seekers of fun, mayhem and adventure; Jack, Doc and Reggie. A combination of the Three Musketeers and Robin Hood all rolled into one, the three consider themselves Soldiers of Fortune with a difference, ones with a conscience and a morality to adhere to. The three had originally met while fighting for the losing side during the Japanese occupation of Manchuria, but they united again stateside after surviving that conflict against death-defying odds. A sunken 18th century castle...a mad scientist hell bent on his research...the strange disappearance of a man with an unusual insurance policy...man vs beast! Just another day in the life for the ILM boys.
88 pages, black and white, $10.95.
