Ian (I.A.) Watson is the guest on this week’s installment of Thomas Deja’s Nocturne Travel Agency, and he tosses out lots of awesome tidbits about upcoming BLACKTHORN projects, among other items of interest:
There has always been something strange about Nocturne, Florida.
Built over some of the most dangerous swamp land in the 18th century, Nocturne has become known as The City That Lives By Night due to its multitude of night clubs, music venues and other sources of entertainment. But it has another reputation, one spoke of whispers in places the revelers and tourists don’t go. That reputation is one of dark doings, of violence and hate and eldritch evil.
Luckily, The City That Lives By Night….has a darker shade of protector.
Nightbreaker: He spent his life hiding who he was…and now he fights to prove that he exists!
Dreamcatcher: There is magic all around us….and she can bend it all to her will!
Ferryman: He’s the conduit to the other side…and its instrument of revenge!
Black Talon: He is the embodiment of the unfettered fury of the African Veldt…stalking a jungle of concrete and glass!
Together they are The Shadow Legion, a secret alliance of mystery men who battle the fantastic threats that can tear apart the metropolis they call home–and beyond!
The saga of The Shadow Legion begins with New Roads To Hell, which reveals the secret origins of Nightbreaker and Ferrymen, and features the menace of Rose Red, the crimson tressed devil with a magical talent for murder–available soon from Airship 27 (airship27.com) and the mind of Thomas Deja!
