Moonstone Books is a unique entity in the comic book industry. They put out comics and have done so for a long time. But they've built themselves a nice little niche on putting out novels and prose anthologies of some of the most loved characters from the pulp era.
The Phantom, The Green Hornet, The Green Lama, Honey West, Boston Blackie, Sherlock Holmes, Domino Lady, Airboy, Sheena: Queen Of The Jungle and so many more… all have had their turn under the cresent moon logo. I've personally contributed to four anthologies: The Phantom, The Avenger and the Green Hornet twice. The editors there work diligently to not only produce high quality stories, but ones that keep up with the classic pulp tradition of each of these characters.
You can find out more about these very cool books here or look for their latest releases like the two below. I'm just waiting for a chance to write Boston Blackie… or maybe Domino Lady.
