Coming Next Year: The Lone Ranger Chronicles


Since this book has been announced officially, I might as well jump in and mention that I have a story in it. I've been a Lone Ranger fan literally as far back as I can remember. One of my first memories of television is watching the origin episodes of THE LONE RANGER. (They were in reruns, mind you; I'm not quite old enough to have seen them the first time around.) I also have very fond memories of listening to the Lone Ranger radio show when it was being broadcast in syndicated reruns in the early Sixties. And here's something I've probably mentioned before: the first novel I ever attempted to write was a Lone Ranger novel I started when I was in high school. (Never finished and long since lost.) So being asked to write a story for this anthology was really a dream come true, to fall back on a cliche. My story is called "Hell on the Border" and also features Judge Isaac Parker, the famous "Hanging Judge". I'm looking forward to seeing it in print and also to reading all the other stories by a great lineup of authors!

I've been a Lone Ranger fan since I was a kid. I'll keep my eye out for it. Do you know what the ETA is on it?

The book is scheduled for March of next year, I believe.

Will there be an electronic version?

All I've heard anything about are hardback and trade paperback editions, which should be released more or less simultaneously. I don't think there are e-book editions of Moonstone's other books. But maybe someday.

Oh, I am so looking forward to this.

This is one of the coolest things I've been in on. I can't wait to read the other stories.

As a kid I loved THE LONE RANGER comics (Dell, Gold Key & Whitman) as well as the crazy long-worded song by Quantum Jump. I'll surely look out for this book in Indian bookstores.
