This book is a fantastic offering for anyone looking for exceptional historical fiction. I particularly enjoyed the work of Mark Gelineau, whose story "The Hanged Man: The 13 Coils" captures brilliantly the feeling of old world Wales and the violence and passion that characterized the lives of its inhabitants. Expertly paced, seasoned with just the right blend of natural and supernatural elements, and filled with a myriad of details that place the reader amid the dark times surrounding the story's protagonist, Gelineau draws his reader into a tale that begs the turning of every next page. Here's to hoping for more from this great group of writers!
Each story a unique window into the life of a new pulp action hero. Each new hero draws you in and leaves you waiting for the sequel which cannot arrive soon enough! I immediately latched onto the Hanged Man as my overall favorite in this compilation. Revenge and justice have been elegantly woven together in Mark Gelineau's introduction to the Hanged Man, a gruesome hero you will not be able to help but root for! Looking forward to more adventures from all of these authors!
Each of these stories shows the definitive style of its creator, diverse and entertaining. However, they also appear to be an introduction to specific characters, which makes me wonder if more stories involving them are in store. Indeed, “The Hanged Man” could well be part of a longer novel, which would be a very eerie piece indeed.
All in all, these three offerings are entertaining, each one just long enough to read in one sitting, with the right touch of mystery, suspense, and a bit of a chill.
