Just to note that a new anthology History and Mystery Oh My! is out on the market for ebooks.
Kindle. Barnes and Noble has it for their Nook and anyone with an EPUB reader can get it via Smashwords.
My story "Dread Secret of the Battle of Los Angeles" is about the real-life event in 1942 when the West Coast was rattled by the post-Pearl Harbor fears of more Japanese attacks. I make a few guesses, put in a few sarcastic remarks about Hollywood, and add a few references to Star Wars, Flash Gordon and the Rocketeer to boot. Hope you like it!
