Airship 27 Productions
MYSTERY MEN (& WOMEN) VOLUME 5
Now available!

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to present volume five of MYSTERY MEN ( & Women ), their showcase anthology for debuting new pulp heroes created by today’s best action-adventure writers.  This book offers up a trio of amazing characters by today’s finest pulp writers.

Things kick off with a full length novella.  THE SHRIKE – in “Not That Kind of Girl” by Gene Moyers.  A mysterious female mastermind recruits her agents to combat the forces of evil in this, her first adventure novella.  This is followed by THE NIGHTBREAKER – in “Lost in the Flood” by Thomas Deja.  Straight out of the pages of the Shadow Legion series comes Nocturne city’s masked avenger as he takes on a villain capable of manipulating water.  And finally we have DOC ATLAS - in “The Death Ray,” by Michael Black & Ray Lovato. Inspired by the likes of Doc Savage and Jim Anthony, Doc Atlas and his teammates must stop a criminal intent on destroying the Statue of Liberty with his deadly new weapon.

“We love producing this series,” claims Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “Sure, it’s great fun in doing new stories about the classic pulp heroes, but there is also something special when our writers cut loose in inventing their own unique and colorful characters. In this volume we truly have three of the best.” Fortier also notes there will be an exciting news release concerning one of the heroes from his company very shortly.

Ted Hammond provides the stunning cover featuring the sexy but deadly Shrike while Art Director Rob Davis delivers twelve amazing black and white interiors.

So time to buckle up and relive the thrill of the pulps in these three outstanding, fast paced adventures brought to you by today’s stellar pulp writers.


Available from Amazon in both paperback & on Kindle.

TALES OF THE GOLDEN DRAGON
Now available!

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announced the release of the third book in writer Barbara Doran’s fantasy adventure series; “Tales of the Golden Dragon.”

As the Feast of Hungry Ghosts begins in the northwest port city of Strikersport, monsters and actual ghosts begin appearing throughout the city causing all manner of chaos. Thus the city’s twin protectors, Dragon and Tiger, enter the fray and set about uncovering the reason behind the sudden appearances. 

Their revelations lead back in time to a horrendous massacre in the village of Batsu, a province of the magical kingdom of Khaitan.  Have agents of ancient deities come to Strikersports to wreak vengeances on the guilty? And of so, what is the magical artifact and its connection to an animated shi shi lion roaming free through the city.

“This is series is catching fire with our fans,” reports Airship 27 Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “Having a heavy Chinese influence in mixing magic and martial arts, these books capture the thrills of all those classic Kung Fu thrillers.” Hawaiian based artist Gary Kato provides the interior illustrations while Art Director Rob Davis our colorful cover.”

Once again Barbara Doran spins a tale of imaginative fantasy filled with colorful heroes, villains and oriental gods wielding amazing powers. It is a frenetic, pulp actioner fans will not be able to put to down.


Available from Amazon in paperback and on Kindle.

Airship 27 Productions – Pulp Fiction For A New Generation!


Airship 27 Productions
DOC ATLAS JOINS AIRSHIP 27
Coming in 2018!

One of the most popular new pulp heroes to arrive on the scene in the past decade is Doc Atlas; created by veteran writers Michael A. Black and Ray Lovato.  Created as their homage to the classic 30s and 40s characters such as Doc Savage, Jim Anthony etc. etc. Atlas has appeared in many fast paced adventures along with his aides, Thomas “Mad Dog” Deagan and Edward “Ace” Assante. These first appearances were offered via such outfits as Eclipse Publishing and Crossroads Press. Hundreds of pulp readers quickly became enthusiastic fans and continue clamor for more stories featuring this dynamic trio. Now they are about to have their wishes realized as Black and Lovato have entered into partnership with one of the leading New Pulp publishers in the field, Airship 27 Productions.

Airship 27 Productions has been publishing New Pulp anthologies and novels since 2004 and in that time their books have won numerous awards.  Owned and operated by Ron Fortier, Managing Editor, and Rob Davis, Art Director, the company is one of a small group that pioneered the revival of pulp fiction and continues to set the standard in creative, original pulp fiction.

“Ever since meeting Mike Black, I’ve been an ardent fan of his work,” Fortier says. “There’s no pulp genre he hasn’t worked in and his stories are always top notch. Doc Atlas is by far his most popular creation.” Black, over the past few years, has become a regular contributor to the Airship 27 anthologies and eventually convinced Lovato to submit his own works. When the pair offered Fortier a new Doc Atlas short, it sparked an idea he realized was too good to pass up. “Doc Atlas and Airship 27 were made for each other. It seemed only natural to me that our company could provide a home that would allow Mike and Ray the freedom to focus solely on their tales and leave the publishing end to someone else; someone who very much wants to increase their readership in a big – big way.”

Echoing that enthusiasm, Michael Black offered the following.  “My lifelong friend, Ray Lovato, and I are honored to have Doc Atlas become a regular part of Airship 27’s cast of characters. We’ve both admired the work of Ron Fortier and Rob Davis for years, and are eager to join them in creating new pulp adventures for a new generation of readers.”

Beginning in 2018, Airship 27 Productions will produce one Doc Atlas title per year, whether a collection of shorts or full length novels and be their sole publisher. Further announcements will be forthcoming.

THE ART OF THE PULPS
by Doug Ellis, Ed Hulse, and Robert Weinberg
Foreword by F. Paul Wilson

Now available and highly recommended!

A team of experts in each of the ten major Pulp genres, from action Pulps to spicy Pulps and more, chart for the first time the complete history of Pulp magazines–the stories and their writers, the graphics and their artists, and, of course, the publishers, their market, and readers.

Each chapter in the book, which is illustrated with more than 400 examples of the best Pulp graphics (many from the Editors’ collections—among the world’s largest) is organized in a clear and accessible way, starting with an introductory overview of the genre, followed by a selection of the best covers and interior graphics, organized chronologically through the chapter. All images are fully captioned (many are in essence "nutshell" histories in themselves). Two special features in each chapter focus on topics of particular interest (such as extended profiles of Daisy Bacon, Pulp author and editor of Love Story, the hugely successful romance Pulp, and of Harry Steeger, co-founder of Popular Publications in 1930 and originator of the "Shudder Pulp" genre).

With an overall Introduction on "The Birth of the Pulps" by Doug Ellis, and with two additional chapters focusing on the great Pulp writers and the great Pulp artists, The Art of the Pulps covers every aspect of this fascinating genre; it is the first definitive visual history of the Pulps.

Hardcover, 240 pages, $49.99.
Co-editors Doug Ellis and Ed Hulse have jointly signed a limited number of copies Murania Press is pleased to sell for the book’s suggested retail price of $49.99, with free shipping for buyers in the continental United States. A personal inscription can be added if requested; just send us a note at muraniapress@yahoo.com asking for personalization.

To repeat, there is a very limited number of signed copies available, so if you’re interested don’t wait too long to place an order.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
By Ed Hulse (editor)
Now available!

The Shadow, The Spider, The Avenger, Doc Savage, The Black Bat, The Phantom Detective — these swashbuckling heroes of mid-20th-century pulp fiction all had one thing in common: They fought crime from outside the law, unhindered by red tape and unmindful of such legal niceties as due process. They fought with fists and guns, for the most part hiding their true identities beneath outlandish costume and grotesque disguises.

This collection of essays by distinguished pulp-fiction aficionados chronicles the era of single-character magazines from offbeat angles and with keen insight. The pieces herein analyze key stories and characters while offering rare, behind-the-scenes glimpses of authors and editors at work, crafting and polishing the pulp-paper fever dreams that enthralled millions of young readers during the Great Depression, World War II, and beyond. Ed Hulse, editor of Blood ‘n’ Thunder, the award-winning journal of adventure, mystery and melodrama, has assembled these affectionate essays with loving care and a discerning eye for the high-water marks in this phase of American popular culture.

This third volume of Blood ‘n’ Thunder Presents, like its predecessors, is profusely illustrated with pulp-magazine covers and original artwork.

THE DEMON CROWN: A SIGMA FORCE NOVEL (Sigma Force Novels) - Now available!
by James Rollins

Off the coast of Brazil, a team of scientists discovers a horror like no other, an island where all life has been eradicated, consumed and possessed by a species beyond imagination. Before they can report their discovery, a mysterious agency attacks the group, killing them all, save one, an entomologist, an expert on venomous creatures, Professor Ken Matsui from Cornell University.

Strangest of all, this inexplicable threat traces back to a terrifying secret buried a century ago beneath the National Mall: a cache of bones preserved in amber. The artifact was hidden away by a cabal of scientists―led by Alexander Graham Bell―to protect humankind. But they dared not destroy it, for the object also holds an astonishing promise for the future: the very secret of life after death.

Yet, nothing stays buried forever. An ancient horror―dormant in the marrow of those preserved bones―is free once more, nursed and developed into a weapon of incalculable strength and malignancy, ready to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting world.

To stop its spread, Commander Grayson Pierce of Sigma Force must survive a direct attack on the island of Maui. To be there first has always been the core mission of Sigma Force, a covert team forged to be America's front line against emerging threats. But this time, even Sigma may not be able to decipher this deadly mystery, one that traces back to the founding of the Smithsonian Institution.

With each new discovery, the menace they hunt is changing, growing, spreading―adapting and surviving every attempt to stop it from reconquering a world it once ruled. And each transformation makes it stronger . . . and smarter.

Running out of time and options, Commander Grayson Pierce will be forced to make an impossible choice. To eradicate this extinction-level threat and expose those involved, he will have to join forces with Sigma's greatest enemy--the newly resurrected Guild―even it if means sacrificing one of his own.

Book #6 in The Wild Adventures of Edgar Rice Burroughs Series
SWORDS AGAINST THE MOON MEN
By Christopher Paul Carey
Cover Art by Chris Peuler and Interior Illustrations by Mark Wheatley
Now available in hardcover!

An all-new science fantasy adventure novel by the acclaimed coauthor of the Ancient Opar series, Christopher Paul Carey 

Hailed by author and science fiction scholar Richard Lupoff as a “masterpiece of science fiction” and a “pioneer work of the modern school of social extrapolation in science fiction,” Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic lunar trilogy—The Moon Maid, The Moon Men, and The Red Hawk—tells the generational tale of humanity’s fight for freedom against alien conquerors from the Moon. The hero, Julian, finds his soul perpetually reincarnated in the bodies of his successive grandsons, fated to confront—down through the centuries—the vicious Kalkars who have subjugated Earth.

The epic saga continues in this novel, Swords Against the Moon Men.

In 2076 AD, Earth has been conquered and humanity brutally enslaved under the cruel tyranny of the Kalkar invaders whose evil was spawned from Va-nah, the Moon’s hollow interior. Julian 7th—descendant of the great hero who led the first expedition to Va-nah and nearly defeated the Kalkars—receives a mysterious transmission from the planet Barsoom.

The desperate plea from the Red Planet swiftly hurls Julian upon a lonely quest into the heart of Va-nah where he teams up with an U-ga princess and a fierce alien quadruped, and launches a daring rescue to save a lost Barsoomian ambassadorial mission. The success of this mission depends on an unlikely alliance with the Warlord of Mars to assail the enemy’s impregnable stronghold.

If Julian fails in this quest, humanity—and the entire solar system—will never escape the iron grip of the Moon Men.

Enjoy this exciting new adventure [Book #6 in The Wild Adventures of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Series]. Available in Hard Cover with a Dust Jacket at ERBurroughs.com and Lulu.com.

THE GOD GENE: A Novel (The ICE Sequence)  - Coming January 2!
by F. Paul Wilson


Rick Hayden and Laura Fanning of Panacea return to encounter another mindbending scientific scenario in, The God Gene, the new thriller by F. Paul Wilson.

Rick's brother, Keith, a prominent zoologist at NYU, walks out of his office one day and disappears. The only clue they have are his brother's book, which mentions "the God Gene."

A million or so years ago, a gene designated hsa-mir-3998 appeared as if by magic from the junk DNA of the hominids who eventually evolved into Homo sapiens. It became a key player in brain development―specifically creativity―and laymen started calling it "the God Gene." Keith had been tracking this gene through the evolutionary tree, and was excited by an odd blue-eyed primate he brought back from East Africa. But immediately after running the creature's genetic code, he destroyed all the results and vanished.

Rick and Laura's search takes them to an uncharted island in the Mozambique Channel, home of the dapis―blue-eyed primates whose DNA hides a world-shattering secret. In a globe-spanning mixture of science, mystery and adventure reminiscent of Michael Crichton, The God Gene takes you to the edge of evolutionary theory and beyond...way beyond.

THE TREASURE OF THE GOLDEN GOD

TWO friends, one an archeologist and the other a mining engineer, determined to take a trip into the jungles of the north of South America. The incitement was some golden ornaments which the archeologist has received from that region, and without knowing it they find themselves following the example of the explorers of the days of Queen Elizabeth and unwittingly go in search of El Dorado. A wonderful presentation of their adventures in South America among the different tribes of Indians follows, and while the Indians are all friendly at first there is the ever-present danger of an outbreak, so that in a sense they are living on the edge of a volcano, as the proverbial saying goes. An outbreak finally occurs during a period of drunken revelry. They have seen gold used almost in profusion by the Indians for their personal adornment; however, the source of this gold is a secret known only to the Chief Medicine Man. But at last trouble occurs, brought on by the killing of one of the Indian tribe by the explorers' guide.

BLACK WINGS VI
Edited by S. T. Joshi
Now available!

SYNOPSIS
This sixth volume of S. T. Joshi’s acclaimed Black Wings series demonstrates as never before how infinitely malleable are H. P. Lovecraft’s weird conceptions. The twenty-two stories and poems in this book run the gamut of modes and genres, but each of them is fueled by elements large and small drawn from Lovecraft’s inexhaustibly rich corpus of writing.

Cosmicism is central to Lovecraft’s imaginative vision, and it oftentimes is manifested in tales of archaeological horror. In this volume, stories by Ann K. Schwader, Lynne Jamneck, Don Webb, and Stephen Woodworth treat this motif in varying and distinctive ways. Lovecraft’s work is also infused with a profound sense of place, as he himself was attached to the familiar locales of his native New England but also travelled widely in search of new vistas to stimulate his imagination. Here, stories by Tom Lynch, Aaron Bittner, W. H. Pugmire, and Darrell Schweitzer summon up the landscapes of diverse realms in America to tease out the horrors embedded in them.


Alien creatures are featured in many of Lovecraft’s greatest tales. In this volume, William F. Nolan, Nancy Kilpatrick, Steve Rasnic Tem, Jonathan Thomas, and Jason V Brock summon up multiform monsters inspired by Lovecraft’s notions of hybridism and alien incursion. The forbidden book theme is deftly handled by Caitlín R. Kiernan, and the notion of other worlds lying just around the corner from our own is the subject of stories by Donald Tyson and Mark Howard Jones. Finally, David Hambling cleverly adapts Lovecraftian concepts to the locked-room detective story.

In commemorating the incredible efflorescence of weird poetry in our time, this book presents poems by four leading contemporary poets—Ashley Dioses, K. A. Opperman, Adam Bolivar, and D. L. Myers. Each of their works fuses skilful use of rhyme and metre with compact evocations of Lovecraftian themes. H. P. Lovecraft’s work is likely to continue inspiring writers for many generations, and this volume presents a vivid snapshot of what can be said in this idiom by sensitive and talented authors.

Captain Future #19 Audiobook
Outlaw World by Edmond Hamilton

Read by Milton Bagby

 Now available!

On the trail of malevolent space pirates, Curt Newton and the Futuremen combat the evil machinations of the Uranian Ru Ghur, who plans the total destruction of the Universe!
 
The Futuremen, the trio that battles injustice alongside Captain Future, all have their origins in the Moon Laboratory that is both home and headquarters to Captain Future. Referred to as a ‘citadel of science’, the Moon Laboratory is designed in a circular fashion and contains quarters for the Futuremen. A reference library containing the vast knowledge of the universe, the Brain’s personal lab, a large room that serves as both workspace and social area with a glassite window as ceiling, and many other rooms make up the Moon Laboratory, definitely the perfect place for an interplanetary hero to call his own.



Grag is most definitely the brawn of the Futuremen. A robot constructed by the Brain and Captain Future’s father, Grag stands over seven feet tall and may be the strongest creation in the solar system. Constructed of ‘inert’ metal, Grag is almost indestructible and powered by atomic energy deep in his chest. Grag’s greatest desire is to be considered human, a point that Otho tends to agitate him over again and again, leading to some of the funniest moments in the stories
 
Truly one of a kind, Otho is a unique android created by Captain Future’s father and the Brain. The synthetic man does not naturally resemble an Earthman, but Otho is well known for his mastery of disguise, a skill that has been useful for Captain Future on many occasions. Otho also is faster and more nimble than nearly any other being alive. Otho also enjoys the danger of each mission they undertake, almost as much as he likes to antagonize the humorless Grag about not being human.
 
Rocket into science fiction adventure and discover new worlds. Ripped from the pages of the Winter 1946 issue of Captain Future magazine, “Outlaw World” is read with wonder and excitement by Milton Bagby.
 
Performed by 2017 Audie Awards winner, voice actor Milton Bagby.

 His true face unknown, his identity forever buried in a secret government file, Secret Agent “X” came back from the dead to take on the sinister sadists and evil extortionists who prey on innocent Americans. A master of disguise who carries a non-lethal gas gun, “X” the unknown is backed by a cabal of wealthy citizens and is answerable only to the shadowy K-9 in Washington.
 
There was a halo of horror surrounding those little green china cats. Death seemed to look out of their curiously slanting eyes. For all who touched them died in throes of terror...Secret Agent “X” touched one–-and he knew he would collect dividends of doom.
 


The enigma of enigmas, Secret Agent “X” has been deputized by a high government official to battle the darkest, most diabolical enemies of America before they sink their poisonous fangs into the nation’s healthy core. Faceless and unsung, “X” infiltrates these threats in a bewildering array of disguises.
 
Operating out of the supposedly haunted Montgomery Mansion, Secret Agent “X” ventures forth in a bewildering array of false identities to infiltrate the darkest underbelly of the underworld—and destroy it from within. A master investigator of a thousand guises and surprises. The only clue to his true identity is his haunting whistle…..
 
Secret Agent “X”’s greatest advantage in his battle against evil and over other Pulp heroes, was his unerring mastery of disguise. Able to take on various roles in each story, oftentimes on the fly, “X” proved to be a formidable foe and a mystery that criminals were often desperate to sort out. The fact that only one person ever truly came close, a blind woman whose senses were heightened and made her able to pick out characteristics unique to Secret Agent “X”, earn him a place on the list of great Pulp heroes.
 
Follow the Man of a Thousand Faces as he confronts the menace of Dividends of Doom, ripped from the pages of Secret Agent “X” magazine, February 1936 and read with chilling intensity by Milton Bagby.
 
Performed by 2017 Audie Awards winner, voice actor Milton Bagby.

For centuries, the Silent Seven has held Earth in its evil grip…but nothing lasts forever. The Shadow and Batman have infiltrated the Seven’s personal stronghold, hidden off the map and away from history, at great personal cost. They didn’t expect to find one of their own standing against them once they arrived. It’s Robin versus Batman with society itself in the balance as the Shadow steps into the one place even he has feared to go: The Deadly Mind of Shiwan Khan. Can three generations of crimefighting overcome centuries of evil? It’s a crucible they can only overcome through the one thing none of them have: trust.

THE ROBERT E. HOWARD GUIDE
By Patrice Louinet
Coming soon!

THE ROBERT E. HOWARD GUIDE by Patrice Louinet
The English translation of the award-winning book that introduced a new generation of French fans to the father of sword and sorcery.

The Robert E. Howard Guide was born out of years of scholarship, but took its final form after answering the same questions from fans over and over again. In many ways, Howard remains a “famous unknown writer," the man who single-handedly defined modern fantasy, but whose life and works are still known mostly filtered through adaptations, pastiches and gross approximations. Because of those specificities, he is more often than not known for what and who he *wasn’t*, for sentences he never wrote, or for characters who bear little resemblance – if any – to his original creations. This, in turn, explains how and why this book was conceived. It is sometimes amusing, sometimes sarcastic, but, built on 30 years of Howard scholarship, it is always insightful. A serious work... that tries not to take itself too seriously.

Airship 27 Productions
DOC ATLAS JOINS AIRSHIP 27
Coming in 2018!

One of the most popular new pulp heroes to arrive on the scene in the past decade is Doc Atlas; created by veteran writers Michael A. Black and Ray Lovato.  Created as their homage to the classic 30s and 40s characters such as Doc Savage, Jim Anthony etc. etc. Atlas has appeared in many fast paced adventures along with his aides, Thomas “Mad Dog” Deagan and Edward “Ace” Assante. These first appearances were offered via such outfits as Eclipse Publishing and Crossroads Press. Hundreds of pulp readers quickly became enthusiastic fans and continue clamor for more stories featuring this dynamic trio. Now they are about to have their wishes realized as Black and Lovato have entered into partnership with one of the leading New Pulp publishers in the field, Airship 27 Productions.

Airship 27 Productions has been publishing New Pulp anthologies and novels since 2004 and in that time their books have won numerous awards.  Owned and operated by Ron Fortier, Managing Editor, and Rob Davis, Art Director, the company is one of a small group that pioneered the revival of pulp fiction and continues to set the standard in creative, original pulp fiction.

“Ever since meeting Mike Black, I’ve been an ardent fan of his work,” Fortier says. “There’s no pulp genre he hasn’t worked in and his stories are always top notch. Doc Atlas is by far his most popular creation.” Black, over the past few years, has become a regular contributor to the Airship 27 anthologies and eventually convinced Lovato to submit his own works. When the pair offered Fortier a new Doc Atlas short, it sparked an idea he realized was too good to pass up. “Doc Atlas and Airship 27 were made for each other. It seemed only natural to me that our company could provide a home that would allow Mike and Ray the freedom to focus solely on their tales and leave the publishing end to someone else; someone who very much wants to increase their readership in a big – big way.”

Echoing that enthusiasm, Michael Black offered the following.  “My lifelong friend, Ray Lovato, and I are honored to have Doc Atlas become a regular part of Airship 27’s cast of characters. We’ve both admired the work of Ron Fortier and Rob Davis for years, and are eager to join them in creating new pulp adventures for a new generation of readers.”

Beginning in 2018, Airship 27 Productions will produce one Doc Atlas title per year, whether a collection of shorts or full length novels and be their sole publisher. Further announcements will be forthcoming.

THE ART OF THE PULPS
by Doug Ellis, Ed Hulse, and Robert Weinberg
Foreword by F. Paul Wilson

Now available and highly recommended!

A team of experts in each of the ten major Pulp genres, from action Pulps to spicy Pulps and more, chart for the first time the complete history of Pulp magazines–the stories and their writers, the graphics and their artists, and, of course, the publishers, their market, and readers.

Each chapter in the book, which is illustrated with more than 400 examples of the best Pulp graphics (many from the Editors’ collections—among the world’s largest) is organized in a clear and accessible way, starting with an introductory overview of the genre, followed by a selection of the best covers and interior graphics, organized chronologically through the chapter. All images are fully captioned (many are in essence "nutshell" histories in themselves). Two special features in each chapter focus on topics of particular interest (such as extended profiles of Daisy Bacon, Pulp author and editor of Love Story, the hugely successful romance Pulp, and of Harry Steeger, co-founder of Popular Publications in 1930 and originator of the "Shudder Pulp" genre).

With an overall Introduction on "The Birth of the Pulps" by Doug Ellis, and with two additional chapters focusing on the great Pulp writers and the great Pulp artists, The Art of the Pulps covers every aspect of this fascinating genre; it is the first definitive visual history of the Pulps.

Hardcover, 240 pages, $49.99.
Co-editors Doug Ellis and Ed Hulse have jointly signed a limited number of copies Murania Press is pleased to sell for the book’s suggested retail price of $49.99, with free shipping for buyers in the continental United States. A personal inscription can be added if requested; just send us a note at muraniapress@yahoo.com asking for personalization.

To repeat, there is a very limited number of signed copies available, so if you’re interested don’t wait too long to place an order.

The Shadow, The Spider, The Avenger, Doc Savage, The Black Bat, The Phantom Detective — these swashbuckling heroes of mid-20th-century pulp fiction all had one thing in common: They fought crime from outside the law, unhindered by red tape and unmindful of such legal niceties as due process. They fought with fists and guns, for the most part hiding their true identities beneath outlandish costume and grotesque disguises.

This collection of essays by distinguished pulp-fiction aficionados chronicles the era of single-character magazines from offbeat angles and with keen insight. The pieces herein analyze key stories and characters while offering rare, behind-the-scenes glimpses of authors and editors at work, crafting and polishing the pulp-paper fever dreams that enthralled millions of young readers during the Great Depression, World War II, and beyond. Ed Hulse, editor of Blood ‘n’ Thunder, the award-winning journal of adventure, mystery and melodrama, has assembled these affectionate essays with loving care and a discerning eye for the high-water marks in this phase of American popular culture.

This third volume of Blood ‘n’ Thunder Presents, like its predecessors, is profusely illustrated with pulp-magazine covers and original artwork.

THE DEMON CROWN: A SIGMA FORCE NOVEL (Sigma Force Novels) - Now available!
by James Rollins

Off the coast of Brazil, a team of scientists discovers a horror like no other, an island where all life has been eradicated, consumed and possessed by a species beyond imagination. Before they can report their discovery, a mysterious agency attacks the group, killing them all, save one, an entomologist, an expert on venomous creatures, Professor Ken Matsui from Cornell University.

Strangest of all, this inexplicable threat traces back to a terrifying secret buried a century ago beneath the National Mall: a cache of bones preserved in amber. The artifact was hidden away by a cabal of scientists―led by Alexander Graham Bell―to protect humankind. But they dared not destroy it, for the object also holds an astonishing promise for the future: the very secret of life after death.

Yet, nothing stays buried forever. An ancient horror―dormant in the marrow of those preserved bones―is free once more, nursed and developed into a weapon of incalculable strength and malignancy, ready to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting world.

To stop its spread, Commander Grayson Pierce of Sigma Force must survive a direct attack on the island of Maui. To be there first has always been the core mission of Sigma Force, a covert team forged to be America's front line against emerging threats. But this time, even Sigma may not be able to decipher this deadly mystery, one that traces back to the founding of the Smithsonian Institution.

With each new discovery, the menace they hunt is changing, growing, spreading―adapting and surviving every attempt to stop it from reconquering a world it once ruled. And each transformation makes it stronger . . . and smarter.

Running out of time and options, Commander Grayson Pierce will be forced to make an impossible choice. To eradicate this extinction-level threat and expose those involved, he will have to join forces with Sigma's greatest enemy--the newly resurrected Guild―even it if means sacrificing one of his own.

THE GOD GENE: A Novel (The ICE Sequence)  - Coming January 2!
by F. Paul Wilson


Rick Hayden and Laura Fanning of Panacea return to encounter another mindbending scientific scenario in, The God Gene, the new thriller by F. Paul Wilson.

Rick's brother, Keith, a prominent zoologist at NYU, walks out of his office one day and disappears. The only clue they have are his brother's book, which mentions "the God Gene."

A million or so years ago, a gene designated hsa-mir-3998 appeared as if by magic from the junk DNA of the hominids who eventually evolved into Homo sapiens. It became a key player in brain development―specifically creativity―and laymen started calling it "the God Gene." Keith had been tracking this gene through the evolutionary tree, and was excited by an odd blue-eyed primate he brought back from East Africa. But immediately after running the creature's genetic code, he destroyed all the results and vanished.

Rick and Laura's search takes them to an uncharted island in the Mozambique Channel, home of the dapis―blue-eyed primates whose DNA hides a world-shattering secret. In a globe-spanning mixture of science, mystery and adventure reminiscent of Michael Crichton, The God Gene takes you to the edge of evolutionary theory and beyond...way beyond.

He spoke a good deal about death, too. He was mortally anxious about winning through with his job, but he didn't care a rush for his life.

'I reckon it's like going to sleep when you are pretty well tired out, and waking to find a summer day with the scent of hay coming in at the window. I used to thank God for such mornings way back in the Blue-Grass country, and I guess I'll thank Him when I wake up on the other side of Jordan.'

Next day he was much more cheerful, and read the life of Stonewall Jackson much of the time. I went out to dinner with a mining engineer I had got to see on business, and came back about half-past ten in time for our game of chess before turning in.

I had a cigar in my mouth, I remember, as I pushed open the smoking-room door. The lights were not lit, which struck me as odd. I wondered if Scudder had turned in already.

I snapped the switch, but there was nobody there. Then I saw something in the far corner which made me drop my cigar and fall into a cold sweat.

My guest was lying sprawled on his back. There was a long knife through his heart which skewered him to the floor.

BLACK WINGS VI
Edited by S. T. Joshi
Now available!

SYNOPSIS
This sixth volume of S. T. Joshi’s acclaimed Black Wings series demonstrates as never before how infinitely malleable are H. P. Lovecraft’s weird conceptions. The twenty-two stories and poems in this book run the gamut of modes and genres, but each of them is fueled by elements large and small drawn from Lovecraft’s inexhaustibly rich corpus of writing.

Cosmicism is central to Lovecraft’s imaginative vision, and it oftentimes is manifested in tales of archaeological horror. In this volume, stories by Ann K. Schwader, Lynne Jamneck, Don Webb, and Stephen Woodworth treat this motif in varying and distinctive ways. Lovecraft’s work is also infused with a profound sense of place, as he himself was attached to the familiar locales of his native New England but also travelled widely in search of new vistas to stimulate his imagination. Here, stories by Tom Lynch, Aaron Bittner, W. H. Pugmire, and Darrell Schweitzer summon up the landscapes of diverse realms in America to tease out the horrors embedded in them.


Alien creatures are featured in many of Lovecraft’s greatest tales. In this volume, William F. Nolan, Nancy Kilpatrick, Steve Rasnic Tem, Jonathan Thomas, and Jason V Brock summon up multiform monsters inspired by Lovecraft’s notions of hybridism and alien incursion. The forbidden book theme is deftly handled by Caitlín R. Kiernan, and the notion of other worlds lying just around the corner from our own is the subject of stories by Donald Tyson and Mark Howard Jones. Finally, David Hambling cleverly adapts Lovecraftian concepts to the locked-room detective story.

In commemorating the incredible efflorescence of weird poetry in our time, this book presents poems by four leading contemporary poets—Ashley Dioses, K. A. Opperman, Adam Bolivar, and D. L. Myers. Each of their works fuses skilful use of rhyme and metre with compact evocations of Lovecraftian themes. H. P. Lovecraft’s work is likely to continue inspiring writers for many generations, and this volume presents a vivid snapshot of what can be said in this idiom by sensitive and talented authors.

The Spider #52 Audiobook
Legions of the Accursed Light Death
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge

Read by Nick Santa Maria

 Now available!

Like an eerie devil-dawn, that green death-ray spread its lethal shadow over New York — burning to smoking crisps the helpless hundreds who dared its path. For the Eye of Flame had loosed his fire-fiends upon America’s proudest city, and, as prisons poured forth their criminals, and the underworld came into its terrible own, no man could hope to combat that ray of death. Single-handed, Richard Wentworth, in the Spider’s gruesome garb, dared the Flame — fighting for an entire people’s safety against a monster who had learned to make millions out of human misery and the charred cinders that had once been men!

The Spider, as conceived by Norvell Page, was much more than a fright mask and a slouch hat. A complex man, Richard Wentworth yearned for a normal life, retired from violent crime-fighting often, but the call to duty always drew him back. His exploits impressed a ten year old Stan Lee, who when he launched Marvel Comics in the early 1960s, drew on the idea of a hunted hero to create Spider-Man!
 
At his side are Nita van Sloan, who sometimes dons the Spider’s black cape and mask to become the Black Widow, Wentworth’s loyal chauffeur, Ronald Jackson, and Sikh bodyguard, Ram Singh. All share in his dangerous life, and every one of them knows his fatal secret. If they are exposed, disgrace and the Death House will be their fate.
 
Once more,the incomparable Nick Santa Maria reads another thrilling Spider exploit. Legions of the Accursed Light Death originally published in The Spider magazine, January, 1938.

The most deadly weapon in history — a green mist which turned all it touched to flaming ruin — was ravaging America! Far off in Etoria, war-dog kingdom of the Mediterranean, a power-mad demagogue plotted the conquest of the world, and subjugating our land was his first wily move...! While the United States government prepares to surrender humbly — while war scars a thousand-mile front in Europe — Operator #5, Ace of the American Intelligence, alone, disgraced, challenges the might of the new Napoleon and single-handed carries the battle into the powerful warlord’s own fortified palace!

 
James Christopher did not technically belong to the U. S. Secret Service. He was a top agent for an American unnamed Intelligence Service. It was in his blood. His father, John Christopher, retired from the same agency years before. Answerable only to his superior, Z-7, and carrying a letter from the President of the United States identifying him as Operator #5,
 
Jimmy belonged to the clean-cut, square-jaw, clear-eyed breed of hero made popular by the F. B. I. back in those grim days. Even with that wholesome, image, Jimmy came well armed and prepared. He carried a Colt automatic and wore a flexible rapier concealed in the hollow of his leather belt. A gold skull ornament dangled from a vest-pocket watch chain. It contained a fast-acting poison in case of capture by enemy agents. Jimmy Christopher played a very dangerous game, of which he was a past master.
 
Into this unprecedented crisis plunged Jimmy Christopher. Only one man, but a man who embodied the American spirit — and stands prepared to perish to protect his country.
 
War Dogs of the Green Destroyer is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the January, 1936 issue of Operator #5 magazine.
 
Performed by 2017 Audie Awards winner, voice actor Milton Bagby.

But when will that proximity to The Shadow's dark and violent world take its ultimate toll on her? And what effect will his lover's loss have on the driven and brooding Master of Darkness? A powerful and resonant tale in the sort of pulse-pounding pulp style that only Matt Wagner could deliver!

SKY DEVIL: ACE OF DEVILS
By Harold F. Cruickshank


The Sky Devil and his Brood were riders of the hell trail! Nowhere along the Western Front could you find a more feared crew, both in their element or out. 120 Squadron could always be counted on to whip Germany's best Aces, out-scrap entire squadrons of Boche killers, or tackle not one, but two crazed Barons with an Egyptology fetish! But what happens when they find themselves up in a dirigible fighting a fleet of ghost zeppelins, or down in the English Channel battling ferocious deep water beasts, or even behind enemy lines dealing with a crazed Major Petrie? Plenty, and you can read it all here. The prolific Harold F. Cruickshank was a mainstay of Popular Publications’ aviation titles, with a series in each. For Battle Aces he wrote Sky Wolf; For Battle Birds he created Red Eagle; and in Dare-Devil Aces, from 1932 to 1935, he wrote the 29 tales of Sky Devil. This second volume from Age of Aces Books collects half of the run—15 stories in all—including the seminal story where Bill Dawe is rooked out of the command of 120 Squadron!

Stories include
“The Green Devils” – Dare-Devil Aces, July 1932
“Killer’s Drome” – Dare-Devil Aces, November 1932
“Ace of Devils” – Dare-Devil Aces, November 1933
“Skeleton’s Drome” – Dare-Devil Aces, December 1933
“The Sky Pirates” – Dare-Devil Aces, January 1934
“Staffel of Hate” – Dare-Devil Aces, February 1934
“The Flaming Vulture” – Dare-Devil Aces, March 1934

“Staffel of Dead Men” – Dare-Devil Aces,September 1935

$16.99 | 6″x9″ trade paperback | 364 pages




The German Empire has unleashed Hell on Earth! The dead are climbing out of their graves and giant skeletons attack the living. Heads are detonating and soldiers are turning to bronze. But flying to the rescue like an avenging angel is America’s own “Brain Devil,” Captain Philip Strange, the phantom ace of G-2 Intelligence. Whether it’s deadly bridges or killer broadcasts, when the Allies need a miracle they pray for Philip Strange! This sixth volume of Donald Keyhoe’s flying spy features six weird World War I adventures: The Devil's Holocaust, Hell's Gateway, The Brain-Devil of G-2, Tombstone Tarmac, The Bridge of Death, and Hellions of Headless Death.

Stories include
“The Devil’s Holocaust,” – Flying Aces, June 1932
“Hell’s Gateway,” – Flying Aces, April 1932
“The Brain-Devil of G-2,” – Flying Aces, September 1932

THE COMPLETE ADVENTURES OF THE MOON MAN, VOLUME 7: 1936-37
by Frederick C. Davis, Introduction by Andrew Salmon

Now available!

From 1933–37 pulpsmith extraordinaire Frederick C. Davis chronicled the adventures of the classic pulp hero the Moon Man in the pages of Ten Detective Aces. One of the most unique and compelling characters in the history of the genre, the Moon Man was the Robin Hood of the pulps: He stole from those who profited from the misery of the Depression to help those in need, to balance the scales of justice.

And justice was close to the Moon Man's heart. For the Moon Man was actually police detective Stephen Thatcher—a dedicated law officer all too familiar with the cracks in the system criminals used to avoid retribution. Donning a black robe and a globe of Argus glass, Thatcher became the Moon Man, a thief who stole from criminals the law could not touch.

Now the Moon Man is hunted by his best friend and partner, reviled by his father and fiancé who all want to see the masked thief pay the ultimate price for his crimes. Stephen Thatcher must walk the razor's edge of his double life where, every minute, the threat of exposure could shatter his fragile world.

For the first time in decades all 38 of the Moon Man's exploits have been collected by Altus Press in a seven-volume set.

Preview to Murder: The unwinking crystal eye of a camera caught Sue McEwen helping the notorious Moon Man. Then the Moon Man soon found that he must be a slave to the ruthless demands of a public-enemy gang, or his sweetheart would be sent to the chair.

Ghoul's Carnival: The notorious Moon Man, enigma of enigmas, was faced with the dishonor of deserting the staunchest friend he had—and with losing his sweetheart in a slough of disgrace, from which he could never rescue her. He had no way out—unless he turned corpse-master to make the dead cheat the living.

Skeleton's Snare: Death stilled the lips of a blackmail victim who was about to rip open a city-wide money scandal. But before that man died he named the notorious Moon Man as his murderer. Yet, even the Moon Man's deadliest enemy had never accused him of cowardly extortion.

Murder for a Pastime: Kidnapers snatched Sue McEwen and held her for a hundred-grand ransom to be paid by the notorious Moon Man. For even the underworld did not believe he was a true Robin Hood whose every haul went to the poor and oppressed. And the nearly penniless Moon Man did not know how to double-cross both the law and the lawless to save the girl he loved.

Blackjack Jury: Detective Sergeant Steve Thatcher, alias the Moon Man, was sure that his number was up.
For his own father, the chief of police, would suffer ignominious discharge from his life-treasured post unless he brought in the Moon Man.

THE ART OF THE PULPS
by Doug Ellis, Ed Hulse, and Robert Weinberg
Foreword by F. Paul Wilson

Now available and highly recommended!

A team of experts in each of the ten major Pulp genres, from action Pulps to spicy Pulps and more, chart for the first time the complete history of Pulp magazines–the stories and their writers, the graphics and their artists, and, of course, the publishers, their market, and readers.

Each chapter in the book, which is illustrated with more than 400 examples of the best Pulp graphics (many from the Editors’ collections—among the world’s largest) is organized in a clear and accessible way, starting with an introductory overview of the genre, followed by a selection of the best covers and interior graphics, organized chronologically through the chapter. All images are fully captioned (many are in essence "nutshell" histories in themselves). Two special features in each chapter focus on topics of particular interest (such as extended profiles of Daisy Bacon, Pulp author and editor of Love Story, the hugely successful romance Pulp, and of Harry Steeger, co-founder of Popular Publications in 1930 and originator of the "Shudder Pulp" genre).

With an overall Introduction on "The Birth of the Pulps" by Doug Ellis, and with two additional chapters focusing on the great Pulp writers and the great Pulp artists, The Art of the Pulps covers every aspect of this fascinating genre; it is the first definitive visual history of the Pulps.

Hardcover, 240 pages, $49.99.
Co-editors Doug Ellis and Ed Hulse have jointly signed a limited number of copies Murania Press is pleased to sell for the book’s suggested retail price of $49.99, with free shipping for buyers in the continental United States. A personal inscription can be added if requested; just send us a note at muraniapress@yahoo.com asking for personalization.

To repeat, there is a very limited number of signed copies available, so if you’re interested don’t wait too long to place an order.

THE BIG BOOK OF THE CONTINENTAL OP - Now available!
by Dashiell Hammett

Now for the first time ever in one volume, all twenty-eight stories and two serialized novels starring the Continental Op—one of the greatest characters in storied history of detective fiction.

Dashiell Hammett is the father of modern hard-boiled detective stories. His legendary works have been lauded for almost one hundred years by fans, and his novel The Maltese Falcon was adapted into a classic film starring Humphrey Bogart. One of Dashiell Hammett's most memorable characters, the Continental Op made his debut in Black Mask magazine on October 1, 1923, narrating the first of twenty-eight stories and two novels that would change forever the face of detective fiction. The Op is a tough, wry, unglamorous gumshoe who has inspired a following that is both global and enduring. He has been published in periodicals, paperback digests, and short story collections, but until now, he has never, in all his ninety-two years, had the whole of his exploits contained in one book. The book features all twenty-eight of the original standalone Continental Op stories, the original serialized versions of Red Harvest and The Dain Curse, and previously unpublished material. This anthology of Continental Op stories is the only complete, one-volume work of its kind.

THE ALBIGENSIAN TREASURE
by Maurice Magre
Adapted by Brian Stableford
Cover by Mike Hoffman


This volume is the ninth of a series of twelve dedicated to Magre’s works. In The Albigensian Treasure (1938), we follow the adventures of Michel de Bramevaque, who launched himself in search of the Holy Grail after receiving a supernatural injunction. Magre, with elegant simplicity, leads us through a series of adventures and trials on the quest for the sacred artifact hidden by his Albigensian ancestors in the Languedoc soil.

Long considered as one of the best works of esoteric literature of 20th century, The Albigensian Treasure, rooted in the Cathar religion, is rich in spirituality, demonstrating that, behind the visible face of things, often hides another, much more subtle. This is a superb novel of fantastic realism, steeped in a dark and tormented atmosphere.
 
The book also includes a collection of similarly-themed vignettes from La Beauté invisible (1937).

Contents:
Le Trésor des Albigeois [The Albigensian Treasure, 1938]
Communication avec la nature [Communication with Nature, 1937]
Introduction, Afterword and Notes by Brian Stableford.

JEAN DE FODOAS
by Maurice Magre
Adapted by Brian Stableford
Cover by Mike Hoffman


This volume is the tenth of a series of twelve dedicated to Magre’s works. In Jean de Fodoas (1939), the eponymous hero leaves his natal city of Toulouse, travelling to the heart of India in the heyday of the Mogul Empire, to the court of Emperor Akbar the Great. Adventure and mysticism are brought together in the novel, because Jean’s  cousin has  recruited him to accomplish a mysterious task at Akbar’s court, involving the treasure of Genghis Khan and the  enigmatic Baphomet that was once allegedly worshipped by the Knights Templars.
 
A  picaresque and rambunctious adventure story, Jean de Fodoas is a stylish example of Magre’s ability to bring together adventure and mysticism.


Contents:
Jean de Fodoas: aventures d’un Français à la cour de l’empereur Akbar [Jean de Fodoas, 1939]
Le Mystère des Templiers [The Mystery of the Templars, 1930]

PATHS OF FIRE
by Albert Richard Wetjen, Tom Roberts (Introduction)

Now available!

Lovers of exotic adventure will welcome this new collection. Filled with excitement and clever drama, these stories cover murder, intrigue, stolen pearls, gun smuggling, mutiny and a fight for treasure!

Albert Richard Wetjen has been compared to John Masefield, while the O. Henry Awards said “he is in direct line of succession to Joseph Conrad.” As a writer of sea stories, Wetjen was equally adept at penning fiction for the Saturday Evening Post, Collier’s and Good Housekeeping, while also catering to readers in Blue Book, Adventure and Action Stories. Wetjen left home at age thirteen for a life at sea, carrying on the traditions of his sailing forefathers.

These stories vividly display his intimate knowledge of the habits of sailors. But this collection is more than just a chronicle of man’s struggle against the relentless sea. Grim humor, pathos and tragedy are skillfully blended to make Paths of Fire entertaining from cover to cover. With a biographical introduction by Tom Roberts.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
By Ed Hulse (editor)
Now available!

The Shadow, The Spider, The Avenger, Doc Savage, The Black Bat, The Phantom Detective — these swashbuckling heroes of mid-20th-century pulp fiction all had one thing in common: They fought crime from outside the law, unhindered by red tape and unmindful of such legal niceties as due process. They fought with fists and guns, for the most part hiding their true identities beneath outlandish costume and grotesque disguises.

This collection of essays by distinguished pulp-fiction aficionados chronicles the era of single-character magazines from offbeat angles and with keen insight. The pieces herein analyze key stories and characters while offering rare, behind-the-scenes glimpses of authors and editors at work, crafting and polishing the pulp-paper fever dreams that enthralled millions of young readers during the Great Depression, World War II, and beyond. Ed Hulse, editor of Blood ‘n’ Thunder, the award-winning journal of adventure, mystery and melodrama, has assembled these affectionate essays with loving care and a discerning eye for the high-water marks in this phase of American popular culture.

This third volume of Blood ‘n’ Thunder Presents, like its predecessors, is profusely illustrated with pulp-magazine covers and original artwork.

THE DEMON CROWN: A SIGMA FORCE NOVEL (Sigma Force Novels) - Coming December 5!
by James Rollins

Off the coast of Brazil, a team of scientists discovers a horror like no other, an island where all life has been eradicated, consumed and possessed by a species beyond imagination. Before they can report their discovery, a mysterious agency attacks the group, killing them all, save one, an entomologist, an expert on venomous creatures, Professor Ken Matsui from Cornell University.

Strangest of all, this inexplicable threat traces back to a terrifying secret buried a century ago beneath the National Mall: a cache of bones preserved in amber. The artifact was hidden away by a cabal of scientists―led by Alexander Graham Bell―to protect humankind. But they dared not destroy it, for the object also holds an astonishing promise for the future: the very secret of life after death.

Yet, nothing stays buried forever. An ancient horror―dormant in the marrow of those preserved bones―is free once more, nursed and developed into a weapon of incalculable strength and malignancy, ready to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting world.

To stop its spread, Commander Grayson Pierce of Sigma Force must survive a direct attack on the island of Maui. To be there first has always been the core mission of Sigma Force, a covert team forged to be America's front line against emerging threats. But this time, even Sigma may not be able to decipher this deadly mystery, one that traces back to the founding of the Smithsonian Institution.

With each new discovery, the menace they hunt is changing, growing, spreading―adapting and surviving every attempt to stop it from reconquering a world it once ruled. And each transformation makes it stronger . . . and smarter.

Running out of time and options, Commander Grayson Pierce will be forced to make an impossible choice. To eradicate this extinction-level threat and expose those involved, he will have to join forces with Sigma's greatest enemy--the newly resurrected Guild―even it if means sacrificing one of his own.

New on Famous (and forgotten) Fiction!

November 2017
Since the we are in the midst of the holiday season, we thought a Christmas offering might be appreciated, and so we are happy to present a story by
Bret Harte, "How Santa Claus Came to Simpson's Bar," just as it appeared (with a few editorial interpolations) in the March, 1872 issue of The Atlantic Monthly. Introductory notes are by Bob Gay.

October 2017
Just in time for Halloween, we present what is probably the most popular story to appear in Weird Tales, "The Night Wire" by H. F. Arnold.  
Read it at night with the lights turned low...


September 2017
Since we are now in the season of Fall (and not wanting to miss the chance for a pun), this month we present Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's tale of a famous fall, The Adventure of the Final Problem, just as it appeared in the December, 1993 issue of The Strand Magazine, including the illustrations by Sidney Paget. An introduction by Dan Neyer is also included and he makes some interesting points about our current perceptions of Professor Moriarty...
 
Also, if you are new to the site, you might wish to read Dan's biography of Doyle and possibly peruse some of our other Doyle stories.

August 2017
We've added a new Author Collection to FAFF, and are pleased to present The Edmond Hamilton Collection
Like our other Author Collections, our initial offering begins with a biography of Hamilton and we've also included Hamilton's very first story, The Monster God of Mamurath
In the months to come, we will be adding additional Hamilton stories to the collection and will also be adding more early science fiction by names both famous and forgotten.

July 2017
This month, we present "The Jameson Satellite," direct from the pages of the July, 1931 issue of Amazing Stories, along with an introduction by Bob Gay.
Also, we have added another annotated gallery of Bob's Stuff, with even more wonderment from Bob's boxes and shelves.


June 2017
Back after a short hiatus (insert your favorite quote about life here) we present the fourth, and final story of Doyle's Tales of the High Seas, "The Striped Chest." 
Dan Neyer introduces the story and also addresses the unknowns that surround the tale, as Captain Sharkey is nowhere to be found in the narrative. 
All of Doyle's text is there, along with the illustrations by Warwick Goble, just as they appeared in the July 1897 issue of Pearson’s Magazine (UK).

April 2017
This month we present the final tale of Captain Sharkey, "The Voyage of Copley Banks," just as it appeared in the May, 1897 issue of Pearson's Magazine (UK), including the illustrations by Warwick Goble.  Dan Neyer adds a short introduction.
And, just for the completists out there: We do realize that there is a 4th Sharkey tale, but we consider it apocryphal and its true origins are unknown.


March 2017
Captain Sharkey returns in the second of Arthur Conan Doyle's Tales of the High Seas in a tale entitled, "The Two Barques," just as it appeared in the March, 1897 issue of Pearson's Magazine, including the illustrations by Warwick Goble. 
Dan Neyer's introduction is also included as a more modern addition.


February 2017
Pirates...Tall sailing ships...the High Seas...and the villainous buccaneer, Captain Sharkey...all these, and more, are part of the Arthur Conan Doyle series, Tales of the High Seas. 
Starting this month, we begin the series with "The Governor of St. Kitts," just as it appeared in the January, 1897 issue of the British version of Pearson's Magazine, including the illustrations by Warwick Goble. 
Dan Neyer provides the introduction to the story and the series.

January 2017
Concluding our reprinting of the first series of Father Brown stories, we present “The Sign of the Broken Sword” including all the George Gibbs illustrations and an introduction by Dan Neyer.
Next month, prepare to hoist the jib and steer for clear water!



Girasol Collectables
Pulp Cover Gallery Edition Volume 5
The Spider, G-8 and His Battle Aces, and Operator #5
Now available!

Volume 5 of our Pulp Cover Gallery series is in the works, scheduled for a mid-May release.
This edition will be the same overall format as our other volumes, featuring sets of cover scans of The Spider, G-8 and His Battle Aces, and Operator #5.
One difference this time out is that the images are square-cut, they do not show the rough pulp edges.
The same bonded leather hardcover exterior, 8.5" x 11" interior pages, 130+ pages, full color throughout,
with a brief introduction and checklist with cover artist credit where known.

Noted by many as the author of Psycho, Bloch wrote hundreds of short stories and over 30 novels. He was a member of the Lovecraft Circle and began his career by emulating H.P.

HELP I AM BEING HELD PRISONER
Donald E. Westlake
Cover art by Paul Mann


It isn’t easy going to jail for a practical joke. Of course, this particular joke left 20 cars wrecked on the highway and two politicians’ careers in tatters—so jail is where Harold Künt landed. Now he’s just trying to keep a low profile in the Big House. He wants no part of his fellow inmates’ plan to use an escape tunnel to rob two banks. But it’s too late; he’s in it up to his neck. And that neck may just wind up in a noose...

HELP I AM BEING HELD PRISONER is Donald E. Westlake at his funniest and his most ingenious, a rediscovered crime classic from the MWA Grand Master returning to stores for the first time in three decades.

First appearance in bookstores in 30 years
Donald E. Westlake is a multiple Edgar Award winner—and a nominee for the Academy Award!
The wildest caper ever by the master of the heist story

THE LAST STAND
Mickey Spillane
Cover art by Laurel Blechman


A tarnished former cop goes on a crusade to find a politician’s killer and avoid the .45-caliber slug with his name on it. A pilot forced to make an emergency landing in the desert finds himself at the center of a struggle between FBI agents, unsavory fortune hunters, and the local Indian tribe to control a mysterious find that could mean wealth and power—or death. Two substantial new works filled with Spillane’s muscular prose and the gorgeous women and two-fisted action the author was famous for, topped off by an introduction from Max Allan Collins describing the history of these lost manuscripts and his long relationship with the writer who was his mentor, his hero, and for much of the last century the bestselling author in the world.

First publication ever!
Edited and with an introduction by ROAD TO PERDITION author Max Allan Collins
Includes Spillane’s final novel and a bonus Spillane novella that has also never been published anywhere

THE FORGOTTEN PLANET
THE MAD PLANET

The possibility that our planet will some day be dominated by the insect world has been admitted by our greatest entomologists, and the possibility of this is not half so remote as one might think.
Some of our deepest thinkers believe that it is not only possible, but most probable, that this may happen, or possibly has happened in the past.
It is a story tremendous in its possibilities, and the author has written it with such a facile pen, that you cannot lay the story aside until you have come to its conclusion.

THE RED DUST

The world, in a far distant future, is peopled with huge insects and titanic fungus growths. Life has been greatly altered, and tiny Man is now in the process of becoming acclimated to the change. We again meet our hero Burl, but this time a far greater danger menaces the human race. The huge insects are still in evidence, but the terror they inspire is as nothing compared to the deadly Red Dust.

NIGHTMARE PLANET

Once again, Burl experiences magnificent adventures against a colorful background, but to the whole the author has added philosophical and psychological observations that give this story a flavor seldom achieved in science-fiction.

BLACK WINGS VI
Edited by S. T. Joshi
Now available!
Pre-orders are shipping early next week at the latest!


SYNOPSIS
This sixth volume of S. T. Joshi’s acclaimed Black Wings series demonstrates as never before how infinitely malleable are H. P. Lovecraft’s weird conceptions. The twenty-two stories and poems in this book run the gamut of modes and genres, but each of them is fueled by elements large and small drawn from Lovecraft’s inexhaustibly rich corpus of writing.

Cosmicism is central to Lovecraft’s imaginative vision, and it oftentimes is manifested in tales of archaeological horror. In this volume, stories by Ann K. Schwader, Lynne Jamneck, Don Webb, and Stephen Woodworth treat this motif in varying and distinctive ways. Lovecraft’s work is also infused with a profound sense of place, as he himself was attached to the familiar locales of his native New England but also travelled widely in search of new vistas to stimulate his imagination. Here, stories by Tom Lynch, Aaron Bittner, W. H. Pugmire, and Darrell Schweitzer summon up the landscapes of diverse realms in America to tease out the horrors embedded in them.


Alien creatures are featured in many of Lovecraft’s greatest tales. In this volume, William F. Nolan, Nancy Kilpatrick, Steve Rasnic Tem, Jonathan Thomas, and Jason V Brock summon up multiform monsters inspired by Lovecraft’s notions of hybridism and alien incursion. The forbidden book theme is deftly handled by Caitlín R. Kiernan, and the notion of other worlds lying just around the corner from our own is the subject of stories by Donald Tyson and Mark Howard Jones. Finally, David Hambling cleverly adapts Lovecraftian concepts to the locked-room detective story.

In commemorating the incredible efflorescence of weird poetry in our time, this book presents poems by four leading contemporary poets—Ashley Dioses, K. A. Opperman, Adam Bolivar, and D. L. Myers. Each of their works fuses skilful use of rhyme and metre with compact evocations of Lovecraftian themes. H. P. Lovecraft’s work is likely to continue inspiring writers for many generations, and this volume presents a vivid snapshot of what can be said in this idiom by sensitive and talented authors.

"The Great God Ananzi" by Stephen Chalmers from ADVENTURE, 1st August, 1918
In African folklore the Ananzi spider is a wise and powerful god. It looks a bit like a tarantula but it's not. Tarantulas are pretty deadly.
Warden has been sent down to a small port in Jamaica to learn the banana business. Six days of the week the port village is quiet but the seventh is "Banana Day" when the freighters arrive, the farmers bring in the crops and the two wholesalers, a banana trust and an Independent Alliance vie for their wares. Currently there's a boom in bananas fueled by a fear that a tax is going to laid on them. The buyer for Warden's company seems to be laying down on the job and in the end recommends that his father fire him. between the time the buyer was ordered to report to the company's headquarters and him getting there things have changed. The tax has been scuttled, prices for bananas have plunged and the Trust company is going to have to throw away tons of the fruit. But the Independent alliance, because they failed to buy up as many bananas are their rival, will not be hurt as badly by the market crash. The buyer explains that he had had a hunch, possibly from the Ananzi spider that a crash was coming so had added as he had to discourage purchases.

"The Great Hiding Place" by Denzil C. Lees from ARGOSY, January 26, 1918
Hunter of England has gone to the Arabian desert to look for David Castle, a man missing for many years.

Pulp Magazines Project - Now online!

Publishing legends The Black Mask (1920), Weird Tales (1923), and Amazing Stories (1926) are considered so “extremely rare and valuable” that the U.S. Library of Congress houses its collection of 277 issues in Washington, D.C.’s Rare Book and Special Collections Division—along with the personal libraries of Presidents, medieval and Renaissance manuscripts, and one of only three known perfect copies of the Gutenberg Bible in existence. With its latest addition of 4 issues of The Black Mask (Aug. & Sept. 1920; Dec. 1921; and Apr. 1922), the Pulp Magazines Project has made all 3 classic titles available together—for the first time—in high-quality, cover-to-cover digital editions.

Also available at the Pulp Magazines Project, new issues of the iconic “weird menace” pulp, Dime Mystery Magazine (Apr. 1938 and Sept. 1946); Adventure (Jul. 1, 1928; feat. Walt Coburn’s “The Man Who Hated Himself”); Western Story (Jul. 27, 1940); Detective Story (May 1938; feat. Zorro-creator Johnston McCulley’s “Thubway Tham’s Thothial Thecurity”); and histories of both The Black Mask (E.R. Hagemann; UCLA) and Dime Mystery Magazine (Emily Sisler; University of West Florida).



The Pulp Magazines Project is an open-access digital archive dedicated to the study and preservation of one of the twentieth century's most influential literary & artistic forms: the all-fiction pulpwood magazine. The Project also provides information on the history of this important but long neglected medium, along with biographies of pulp authors, artists, and their publishers.

At the heart of the Project's mission is the archive itself. In summer 2011, it began with a modest library of five representative first-generation pulp titles from the early twentieth century. Over time, the archive will expand, new magazines will be digitized, and contextual materials added. Eventually, the archive will feature a broad range of pre-1923 titles, post-1923 titles where copyright has lapsed, and full volume runs of select titles from 1896 to 1946.

The Project is dedicated to fostering ties between communities of collectors, fans, and academics devoted to pulp magazines, and will offer opportunities for research and collaboration to both scholars and enthusiasts alike. We will provide information on upcoming conferences and conventions, and promote new working relationships between academics and the hundreds of pulp fans and collectors beyond the college and university.

From the archives of the mighty Ancients, Curt Newton brings back forgotten Denebian science to balk a greed-maddened schemer who seeks to loose unspeakable terror on the Universe!
 
As Captain Future stories continued to be written, it likely became necessary for Newton and the Futuremen to make their way beyond our own solar system, even our own galaxy. To this end, Captain Future eventually invents the ‘vibration drive’, a device that essentially allows the band of heroes to go anywhere they need to to protect the universe. New planets get explored and galaxies unheard of spring into life, all teeming with some mystery and evil for Captain Future to face. Travel between dimensions even becomes possible, as does time travel!



Ready to battle with fists and weapons if he has to, Captain Future also has other skills that often come into play. Curtis Newton shows compassion throughout the series, for those around him and aliens new to him. Unlike many science fiction heroes, Captain Future doesn’t assume that a new being he encounters is evil just because they are different. Many of the conflicts are simply misunderstandings and Captain Future proves himself as strong a diplomat as he is a fighter.
 
Captain Future has no shortage of enemies. Beings from across the universe and beyond plot to dominate planets, to destroy galaxies, and find themselves defeated by Captain Future. Only one of his foes, however, proved evil enough to face Captain Future twice. Ull Quorn, The Magician of Mars, is actually the son of the man responsible for murdering Curtis Newton’s parents. Intelligent, ruthless, and strong, Quorn is nearly Captain Future’s equal in every way and comes closer than any to ending the life of the Man of Tomorrow.
 
Rocket into science fiction adventure and discover new worlds. Ripped from the pages of the Spring 1945 issue of Captain Future magazine, “Red Sun of Danger” is read with wonder and excitement by Milton Bagby.
 
Performed by 2017 Audie Awards winner, voice actor Milton Bagby.

Recoverings

These new dust-jackets use scans of the original cover paintings by J. Allen St. John and Studley O. Burroughs, producing the extremely sharp detail and rich color that my dust-jackets are known for.
Click on the image to the right and see for yourself.

APACHE DEVIL was the last cover that Studley O. Burroughs did for ERB, Inc. and CITY OF GOLD was the first that J. Allen St. John did, marking a return of the illustrator to his favorite and most well-known subjects.

Studley originally had the CITY OF GOLD assignment in the fall of 1932, but his personal problems got the better of him and he ended up way behind schedule.

Burroughs had C.R. Rothmund, his secretary, write to St. John as early as February of that year to ask him if he could reduce his prices for artwork, which he had quoted teh previous February, to match their "budget allowance" in the event that "the artist who is doing the work at present" would not be able to deliver on time. St. John agreed to a 37% decrease and ERB, Inc. put him off until it became clear that Studley would miss his deadline. Read more about this on The Back Flap Blog soon to come…
