Here is my synopsis of the first Silver John story. I’ll be adding the rest of the stories and vignettes before moving on to the novels. For background info on the pulp hero called Silver John click here: https://glitternight.com/2011/03/17/sneak-preview-of-my-pulp-hero-page-first-up-silver-john/
***O, UGLY BIRD! – The Silver John short stories debuted with this eerie tale that nicely establishes the whys and wherefores of John and his part of the world. In this inaugural tale Silver John saves a mountain community from the reign of terror of the evil Osmer, a man whose dark soul can go forth in the shape of a giant, hideous bird to kill anyone foolish enough to oppose him. A young girl named Winnie is the first in a long line of ladies who unsuccessfully attempt to convince John to settle down and stop his wandering ways (at least until his beloved Evadare comes along).

It sounds like I’d love these creepy crawly stories. Where do you get them?
Amazon.com sells all the short story collections as well as the five novels. Thanks for stopping by!
I really like this. I’m into the Shadow and Doc Savage and even the Spider but I never heard of this guy. Really glad I found this Silver John stuff here.
That’s really great! Thanks for stopping by and for commenting! I’ll be showcasing other obscure pulp heroes soon.
