Gregg Taylor's love of the classic adventure stories of the golden age of radio, comics and pulp fiction are the driving passions behind the "Tales of the Red Panda" series of books. The books began as a companion piece to his popular radio adventure series "The Red Panda Adventures", heard on independant radio stations around North America and around the world as part of the Decoder Ring Theatre podcast, and have gone on to reach new audiences who love the two-fisted adventure style that recalls the work of the legends of mystery and adventure. Like the classic Hero Pulps that inspired them, the Tales of the Red Panda books can be read in any order, with or without knowledge of the radio series.

This is precisely why I love the Pandaverse. I have read/watched several origin stories which would bite the hero in the behind at some point in the story, but rarely is it done well enough for me to care about the hero. Often-time they're just characters on a chessboard.
Gregg makes me care.
The story was true to the radio drama in which it is set, even though it still retains its accessibility as a stand-alone novel.

I love your writing style and the characters and situations that you write about.
I never miss an episode of the podcast either. Thanks for all the hard work.

Another fantastic outing for Canada's Greatest Super-Hero! A somewhat darker tale as Gregg Taylor sets the Red Panda against a foe whose mind powers possibly surpass those of our hero.
Consider Taylor's reputed dislike of origin stories, this book contains a surprising amount of background information on the Red Panda. Taylor weaves the flashbacks throughout, revealing just the right amount of info as the story moves along. A very good "not-quite-origin" story.
Again, if you're a fan of the audio drama, you'll enjoy the expansion of the universe. If you've never heard of Decoder Ring Theatre, this is still a great, pulpy super-hero story.
