A cat-and-mouse game across the skies. A summoned apocalypse.
The fate of the world hangs in the balance.
June, 1929 finds the Daedalus crew in the Peruvian mountains, working with an old comrade to retrieve a sacred artifact stolen from a native tribe.
Handed one last mission by Edison himself, “Captain Stratosphere” Jack McGraw, Dorothy Doc” Starr, and the rest of the crew head to Seattle, where an aerospace innovator will re-fit the Daedalus with a weapon system for testing off the coast of British Columbia.
But the routine mission becomes a perilous fight for survival, both on the ground and in the air. For Aleister Crowley and Maria Blutig have summoned a storm which threatens to open an eldritch dimension, ending the world as we know it.
Can a haggard and wounded crew fight a war on two fronts, while a secret strike team raids Crowley’s lair, in the desperate hope of staving off the apocalypse?
Based on the Airship Daedalus comics by Todd Downing and Brian Beardsley, Raiders of the Red Storm is book #6 in the Airship Daedalus saga, a sequel to The Arctic Menace.
It’s a retro-pulp action yarn in which mages, mad science, secret societies, occult threats, and lost worlds meet globe-trotting, sky-high aerial action and two-fisted heroism, like the pulp novels of old!More info →
