Greetings, and welcome to my beloved fictional world of airships over Kenya. After publishing twelve novellas chronicling the adventures of the Motor Airship Kestrel, my small but devoted fan base began to suggest, quite pointedly, that I should put the crew into a novel. At first resistant, as they had never been designed for novel work, I decided, what the heck, I'll look into it, and thus was Slayer of Darkness born. Don't be fooled by the title; there is no fantasy element herein, at least other than the history. In a nutshell, the crew becomes involved with what can best be described as a Victorian-era Man from U.N.C.L.E. style organization on the trail of a super-criminal. There are enough subplots going on to keep everybody hopping, and this book was intended to be the launch pad for a spinoff series about that organization. I suppose it still might, but the matter at hand is Slayer of Darkness, so climb aboard for some detective work, derring-do, and a threat of global proportions as I try my hand at a full-size Beyond the Rails novel.
