Buffalo, NY – Stephen Eoannou is a short story author and novelist that derives his inspiration from the history and landmarks in Buffalo, NY. Eoannou is announcing his upcoming novel Yesteryear, which will be released this October. According to Eoannou, “Yesteryear is a fictional imagining of how Fran Striker came up with the idea for The Lone Ranger, and why he sold the rights for ten dollars.”
“Not many know about him because when Striker sold the rights, he kept writing for the show,” explains Eoannou.
Fran Striker received recognition from Buffalo for his work. On Washington Street, by the Central Library, also known as ‘Lit City’, is a banner recognizing Striker, along with many other Buffalo-connected writers. Striker’s banner is by The Brisbane Building, where Woolworth’s was once located and where Striker worked before becoming a writer.
The Lone Ranger celebrates its 90th anniversary this year.
