THE BAY PHANTOM
A Confederacy of Devils
Mobile Alabama in the early 1920s is a hot-house of history, tradition, political corruption and racial bigotry. Amidst this landscape of both grandeur and depravity arises a new avenger to battle the forces of evil and injustice. He is the mysterious Bay Phantom, a dark clad warrior willing to mete out justice with his blazing .45s. But beneath this flamboyant mask is the often inept, naïve Joseph Perrone, heir to a commercial fisheries empire.
Perrone’s one amazing asset is his partner, the beautiful Mirabelle Darcy, a young black woman with the ninth highest I.Q. in the world. An engineering genius, it is Mirabelle who provides Perrone with the guidance to see him through the deadly and macabre challenges that await them. A secret Crime Lord is attempting to take over the city and has unleashed a blood-thirsty Werewolf and a bizarre assassin known as the Black Embalmer to carry out his insidious plans.
Now it is up to Mirabelle and the Bay Phantom to save their city with the help of an Austrian doctor named Sigmund Freud. And that’s only the beginning!
“Chuck Miller possesses one of the most unique literary voices in New Pulp today,” declaires Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “I defy anyone to show me something he has written that is not original, quirky and just plain weird in a totally fun kind of way.”
Miller was born in Ohio, lived in Alabama for many years, and now resides in Norman, Oklahoma. His interests include monster movies, comic books, music and writing. He holds a BA in creative writing from the University of South Alabama. Miller received the BEST NEW WRITER OF 2011 Award from Pulp Ark. His first novel, the critically acclaimed "Creeping Dawn: The Rise of the Black Centipede" was published in 2011. He is currently working on a new Sherlock Holmes novel for Airship 27.
Art for The Bay Phantom – Confederacy was provided by Zachary Brunner, both moody interior illustrations and the stunning painted cover. The book was designed by Art Director Rob Davis.
Says bestselling adventure fantasy author, Charles Saunders, “Move over Shadow – there’s a new cloak on the block.”
