Avengers of the Moon

Captain-Future500Quest Beyond the Stars was the first Captain Future story I read while in high school. It was the Popular Library reprint edition, and I read every one in the series after that. In 2009, Pulpville Press came out with Captain Future Man of Tomorrow, a collection of the short stories written after the Captain’s own magazine folded.

I first heard about Allen M. Steele’s new book from Tor starring Curt Newton and his crew in the Jan/Feb issue of Asimov’s. Avengers of the Moon arrived in yesterday’s mail and I started reading last night. It’s great to see the Captain in hardcover. It’s dedicated to “Edmond Hamilton—Captain Future’s creator and the father of space opera.”
