Even the united remnants of Toronto's defeated underworld could not resist the city's masked protectors. But when they join with the murderous might of some of the masked man's deadliest foes, can even the Red Panda match the strength of... The Crime Cabal? Written in the breathless style of the classic "Hero Pulps" of the 1930s and 40s, Tales of the Red Panda: The Crime Cabal presents the masked protectors of Depression-Era Toronto in a pulse pounding conflict with gangsters, racketeers, corrupt officials and power-mad supervillains. The heroes from "The Red Panda Adventures"; a popular full-cast audio drama podcast in the style of the adventure programs of radio's golden age here make the leap into pulp prose in spectacular style. This story is a self-contained adventure; you needn't have heard a single episode of Decoder Ring Theatre's long-running audio drama series to enjoy the thrills, mystery and adventure... but fans of the series will take special delight, as the story fits neatly within the series continuity. If you love classic adventure stories, mystery men, pulp fiction and golden age superheroics, you won't want to miss Tales of the Red Panda: The Crime Cabal!

About Gregg Taylor

See more books from this Author
Gregg Taylor is a writer, director and actor who turned his small theatre company away from the world of empty chairs and greasepaint and into the wide world of the internet. Setting a course for the part of the map labeled "Here Be Dragons", Taylor and the small but hardy band of adventurers that make up the Decoder Ring Theatre ensemble turned to the new medium of podcasting to bring the world a second golden age of radio-style adventure and mystery. A million downloads later, the pulp heroics of The Red Panda Adventures and the noir stylings of Black Jack Justice have fans all over the globe, and Taylor created the Tales of the Red Panda pulp novel series with the same notion as the radio shows... that this was an actual creation from the 1930s, of which this is a single two-fisted issue.
