"Prepare to be amazed and astonished, Gentle Reader, by the feats and exploits of the legendary world-traveler, Grant McSwain. Thrill with each terror confronted! Be mesmerized at every mind-blowing mystery resolved! Swoon with suspense at the successes of this dashing and debonair super-man." This is a series of short, episodic pieces set in a version of our world's 1930s, written for a weekly short story contest. I picture Golden Age comic books and radio serials with ridiculous plots, fantastic monsters, and a rising German threat because everybody loves to hate Nazis. Basically, I'm going for Indiana Jones if he was a thick-jawed, overconfident moron.
