Crossover Cover: Demon Weather
The Portuguese sea-captain Luis da Silva battles Francisco Batista, a sorcerer with a grudge against him. Batista thinks of others who created artificial men: Paracelsus, Roger Bacon, the Qabbalists, Albertus Magnus, and Victor Frankenstein. Reference is made to da Silva meeting Arkright. Since the other creators of artificial men who Batista thinks of are all historical figures, Victor Frankenstein must be as well. Da Silva met Arkright (from William Hope Hodgson’s Carnacki, the Ghost-Finder) in Kidd’s story “Arkright’s Tale.”
This crossover is one of hundreds covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
