This book has been written for the readers of the classic pulp serial adventures of yesterday, drawing inspiration from some of the all-time greats in that class.

Every individual story contributes to the overarcing narrative of the story, which I hope will endure and bring as much enjoyment to the readers as it did this writer with every word put to page.
