Robert Weinberg Presents
Maker of Shadows Audiobook
by Jack Mann
Read by Milton Bagby. Liner Notes by Robert Weinberg
Jack Mann, the author of Maker of Shadows and seven other novels starring Gregory George Gordon Green, known to most as “Gees” was actually a pseudonym for E. Charles Vivian, a well-known British author of supernatural, western, and detective novels. Making the Vivian pen-name even more interesting was the fact that it too was a pseudonym of Charles Henry Cannell, who wrote books, many about series characters, under numerous pen-names.
Born in 1882, Cannell died in 1947. At the time, he had written over 80 books, ranging from westerns (as by “Barry Lynd”) to lost race adventures The City of Wonder, Fields of SleepHis Gees’s novels were so popular that several of them published in hardcover in England were later serialized in Argosy magazine. Maker of Shadows was so highly regarded that it was illustrated by Virgil Finlay, considered the top pulp artist of the time.
As a young man, Cannell served as a British soldier in the Boer War. Afterwards, he worked for several years as a reporter for The Daily Telegraph newspaper. Deciding to become a novelist, Cannell switched to writing fiction in 1907.
Discovering a talent for editing, Vivian worked for the British fiction magazine, The Novel Magazine while continuing to turn out novels. Later, working for publisher Walter Hutchinson, he acted as editor for Hutchinson’s Adventure-Story Magazine and Hutchinson’s Mystery-Story Magazine. For those publications, Vivian used a stable of British authors. Plus, he reprinted work from such USA pulp publications as Adventure and Weird Tales.
The “Gees” series were Vivian’s most popular novels. The stories featured a young, somewhat naïve, British detective Gregory George Gordeon Green, known as “Gees” and delve into his various cases, most of which involve the supernatural. In this story, Gees is recruited by Margaret Aylener, the head of a major Scottish family. Margaret has been battling most of her life against Gamel Macmorn, supposedly the descendent of foreign invaders who enslaved and murdered the Scots. No one in the area knows how old Macmorn really is, as he seemingly possesses the power to regenerate himself at certain times after which he returns to his home as “his son.”
Gees battles Macmorn and his ancient Druidic magic in a duel for the soul of Margaret Aylener’s daughter, Helen. The evil Macmorn is not known as Maker of Shadows for nothing, and Gees find out just how true that menacing title really is. But Gees commands powers of his own… Read by Milton Bagby.

Robert Weinberg, Series Editor, in fifth grade read The Devil and Daniel Webster, by Stephen Vincent Benet, and knew beyond any shadow of a doubt that he wanted to become a writer. It’s a dream he’s followed since. During the past 57 years, Bob has written and sold nearly 150 short stories, 19 novels, 18 non-fiction books and more than two dozen comic book scripts. He’s edited more than 200 anthologies and short story collections. Bob’s work has been published in 20 countries and 15 languages.
He’s won 2 Bram Stoker Awards, for writing and editing, given by the Horror Writers Association; 2 World Fantasy Awards; and 2 Society of Technical Writers Awards for his non-fiction science books. He served 2 terms as Vice President of the Horror Writers Association. He’s the only person in the history of the organization to win the group’s Silver Hammer Award for service to the association 2 times. Bob also was on the Board of Trustees for the World Fantasy Convention for 24 years. In 2005, Bob was Guest-of-Honor at Robert E. Howard Days held in Cross, Plains, Texas. Later that same year, was Guest-of-Honor at the World Fantasy Convention held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In 1983, Bob was given a Lamont Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by the Directors of PULPcon, the convention for pulp magazine enthusiasts. The Horror Writers Association awarded Bob a Bram Stoker Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010. In 2012, he was present a special award by the World Science Fiction Convention for his contributions to the Science Fiction field. Bob is probably the only horror writer who has ever served as Grand Marshall of a Rodeo parade. Despite all his success, Bob Weinberg is not yet ready to retire. He’s still looking to write the perfect story. He’s intent on composing a story that resonates with his readers the way The Devil and Daniel Webster did with him. It’s a goal he may never achieve, but he intends to keep trying.

Milton Bagby is a veteran radio announcer and voiceover specialist who first turned to audiobooks in 2010. Since then, Milton has worked on over two dozen audiobook projects as a narrator or producer. Drawing upon years of stage acting and the occasional bit part in films, Milton uses his experience to create characters that stand out in the ear of the listener.

“I am very much aware that a perfect stranger is going to invest eight or ten hours listening to me tell a story. I do my best to give the listener an experience in which the characters in that story come alive and sound real.”

When not behind a microphone, Milton is a writer.  In addition to the well-received Rick Burkhart crime novels, Milton writes a line of 1950s style pulp stories, and is the author of dozens of magazine articles and two non-fiction books.  Milton and his wife live in Nashville.
