Moonstone Bookes has announced it will release a collection of short stories featuring the Green Hornet and his side-kick Kata later this year.  With a movie on the way, there could be a run on Green Hornet content, and it looks like Moonstone Books is prepping itself for a potential rush.

“We’re obviously thrilled to add The Green Hornet to our stable of licensed properties,” said Moonstone publisher and The Green Hornet editor Joe Gentile.  “As a huge fan, I’ve dreamed of bringing back and adding to these great characters’ legacy.  It is an honor and a responsibility we take very seriously. I can’t wait to see the new crime fiction stories come in from the many talented authors we have lined up.”

The Hornet’s return has created quite a buzz among today’s top writers from mystery, suspense, science fiction and pulp fiction.  Contributing authors include Harlan Ellison, Max Allan Collins, Ed Gorman, Mel Odom, Greg Cox, Will Murray, Ron Marz and scores more!  Actor Van Williams, who starred in the 1960’s television show along with expert martial artist Bruce Lee as Kato, will introduce the first prose volume.

Moonstone tapped acclaimed former Disney artist Rubén Procopio, now principal of Masked Avenger Studios, to art direct and contribute cover art and interior illustrations for each volume.  “It’s a dream project to explore new facets of one of my all-time favorite masked heroes… and ‘protect the rights and lives of decent citizens!’” said Procopio, recalling a memorable line from the television show.
