Tales of the Shadowmen

Tales of the Shadowmen is an American annual anthology of short stories edited by Jean-Marc Lofficier and Randy Lofficier, published by Black Coat Press. The stories take place in a fictional world where all of the characters and events from adventure literature, and in particular French adventure literature, actually exist in the same universe.

About the seriesEdit

The title and concept of Tales of the Shadowmen were inspired by science fiction writer Philip José Farmer's works centering on the Wold Newton family. The concept first emerged in Jean-Marc Lofficier's non-fiction works, French Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror & Pulp Fiction: A Guide To Cinema, Television, Radio, Animation, Comic Books And Literature From The Middle Ages To The Present (2000) and Shadowmen: Heroes And Villains Of French Pulp Fiction (2003), which reviewed characters from French popular literature, the latter blending bibliographical information and speculative fiction.
