One of the coolest things about the IAMTW’s charity anthology, besides supporting literacy programs, is there is something for everyone. Masters of tie-in storytelling have created brand new tales about classic characters in the public domain, from Dracula and Sherlock Holmes to Allan Quartermain, Sinbad, and The Ghost of Christmas Past. The talented authors expand the fascinating worlds of H.G. Wells, Cyrano De Bergerac, Edgar Rice Burroughs, H.P. Lovecraft, L. Frank Baum, and even Norse mythology with wondrous new mysteries, adventures, and quests. As an added bonus, readers are treated with tie-in tales about childhood favorites like Space Patrol and Hopalong Cassidy, as well as more exotic fare, like Herne the Hunter and communist superhero Octobriana, satisfying both those seeking the nostalgic feel of favorite classics and those seeking the untrammeled excitement of fresh literary discoveries. Highly recommended. Read them all, then seek out additional works from the industry’s greatest tie-in talents.
