Moonstone Books sent word of a new series launching in March 2014, featuring the first ever anthology of the adventures of Jimmy Christopher.

Stories: Ron Fortier, Adam Lance Garcia
Edited by: Gary Phillips
Cover: Brittany Jackson
300pgs, 6” x 9”, HC, $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-936814-75-6(52499)
Before Bond, there was Jimmy Christopher, super spy Operator 5

Each story is linked, each is a part of telling a larger arc wherein Operator 5 battles to prevent seditionists from assassinating FDR and overthrowing the government — from within.

Operator 5 fights across the country to foil the plotters’ nefarious plans, aided by the likes of The Spider, the Green Lama, and the Phantom Detective, and others!

Stopping an air attack on Chicago to cripple vital rail lines, infiltrating a desert compound where a gas to enthrall millions is being readied, to racing against time to prevent a doppelganger from replacing FDR, are just a sampling of the exciting chapters in the collection as it builds to a final showdown between the redoubtable Jimmy Christopher and his nemesis, Colonel Lucian Starliss and the Medusa Council.
Gary Phillips, Ron Fortier, Joe Gentile, Eric Fein, Tommy Hancock, Paul Bishop, Adam Lance Garcia, Jeri Westerson, Aaron Shaps

Interesting cover for this issue as Jimmy Christopher looks an awful lot like Sir Sean Connery. If these stories are inspired by actual events, I’m thinking Operator 5 needs to look a lot more like Christopher Lee, if you believe the stories of his World War Two adventures.
