Re: The List Adventures Of Amanda Dare
- Of course, while I intend to do the first four novels written
first(FOUR AGAINST EVIL, THE CRIME KINGDOM, THE SKY PIRATES,
THE LOST EMPIRE)this doesn't mean I may be sticking to the
entire schedule of 182 novels in order from '34 to '49...I
have two spinoffs as well.
THE ADVENTURES OF JO AND HARRY are shorter novellas starring
Amanda's crew members Jo Doyle and Harry Fortune several
years before meeting Amanda. Jo and Harry are loveable
con-artists and adventurers operating out of French
Martinique but sometimes world-travelling as needs be.
If you liked TALES OF THE GOLD MONKEY, you'll LOVE these
THE RETURN OF AMANDA DARE goes way beyond the pulp era's
demise in 1949. Returning from a self-enforced exile from
civilization, Amanda faces new challenges and dangers in
the years 1999 to present. How can she (and her crew) still
be alive and youthful fifty years after disbanding? Read
the files(when posted)! ;)
I have this series all thought out, with a fictional
publishing history and other things to make it seem like
a real pulp reprint from something that actually happened
back in the good ol' days!(Avenue & Jones Publications, for
example, is a tip of the fedora to Street & Smith, the
firm that published actual pulps like DOC SAVAGE, THE
SHADOW, THE SPIDER, etc. The "actual" author, CJ Nicastro,
is really my birth name--which I loathe, call me Sebby or
Sebastian, PLEASE! :)--and his pen name, Doug Grant, aside
from sounding appropriately "pulpy", is really another of
my many pen names).
