The Pulptress battles the Air Loom Gang, who have been causing people to experience sudden madness in England, including her old teacher, Peter Knight. Helping her is Knight’s grandson Roger, a New Scotland Yard inspector. Knight is said to have fought “the ungodly” as early as the Roaring Twenties. Roger describes his grandfather as “the modern Robin Hood.” The Pulptress asks Roger, “Did your grandfather ever tell you about his really strange adventures? The story about the giant bugs or the one about Loch Ness?” At the end of the case, the elder Knight tells Emily and Roger, “The two of you did well...Although you realize, you owe it all to my teaching.” Emily responds, “As the actress said to the bishop.” The Pulptress is already in the CU through meetings with Derrick Ferguson’s character Dillon, Erwin K. Roberts’ hero the Voice, and Ron Fortier’s undead vigilante Brother Bones. “Peter Knight” is a thinly disguised version of Simon Templar, the Saint.

Much like the first two books, this one is an AUTHORIZED companion to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
