The Moon Man

Volume 1
A collection of stories by

THE ROBIN HOOD OF THE PULPS! Detective Sgt. Stephen Thatcher is the son of Police Chief Peter Thatcher. Sickened by the effects of the Great Depression on Great City, the young lawman cannot reconcile the rich society elite living the good life while across town the poor of Great City go hungry. Unable to correct this injustice through the system he represents, Thatcher assumes the role of the vigilante thief the Moon Man by disguising himself behind a one-way Argus glass globe. In this get up he then proceed to rob the rich and give to the needy via his loyal aide, former boxer Ned "Angel" Dargan. He is also aided by the lovely Sue McEwen, the daughter of the man sworn to capture him, his own boss, Lt. Detective Gil McEwen.

Costumed in a cloak and a globe of "Argus Glass" the Moon Man was a contemporary "Robin Hood" of the pulp era: robbing from the well off and the dishonest and giving to the poor. Created by pulp legend Frederick C. Davis, the Moon Man's exploits appeared in the pages of "Ten Detective Aces" and was a reader favorite. Now he returns to the streets of Great City in new thrilling adventures written by modern New Pulp writers.
