Crossover Cover: Devil Take the Hindmost

In the city of Denbrook, former journalist Damon St. Cloud seeks to avenge his family’s murder. Along the way, he encounters Matthew Corrigan, Detective Christos, Frederick “the Whale” Whalen, Charybdis and Scylla, and Toulon. Kenneth Ottman and Laloosh are also mentioned. The city of Denbrook, created by Mike McGee, was the setting of nine serialized stories by various authors on the website Frontier Publishing. The first section of the book, “Club Red,” originally appeared on the website in 2004. Matthew Corrigan and Detective Christos are from Michael Franzoni’s Denbrook story “Missing Persons.” Frederick “the Whale” Whalen is from Derrick Ferguson’s novel Dillon and the Voice of Odin. Since Dillon is in the CU, so are the various inhabitants of Denbrook. Charybdis and Scylla, Toulon, and Laloosh are from Ferguson’s as-yet-unpublished Denbrook novel Diamondback: It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time. Kenneth Ottman is from Tom Lynch’s Denbrook story “Pentagram Whispers.”

  1. DIAMONDBACK: IT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME actually was published back in 2008 but the number of people who bought a copy can be counted on the fingers of one hand. It's no longer available and to be honest, I really wasn't happy with that version.
