THE SILVER RIDERS
Six Guns and Sorcery!
Now available!

Airship 27 Productions proudly announces the release of its latest title, The Silver Riders by author Greg Hatcher.

In 1868, six people sought refuge at a hidden enclave in the high desert country of eastern Oregon: A brilliant female doctor dying of a rare disease. A Confederate deserter. Two refugees from a lynch mob. A former slave. A womanizing shootist. These were the first acolytes of Stonegarden Abbey, learning the secrets of Hermetic magic under the tutelage of the mysterious prophet Ezekiel Reardon. But Ezekiel had an agenda of his own, and their time at Stonegarden ended in fire and tragedy.

Those left alive thought the tragedy was behind them. But the dark power they believed was gone and buried with Ezekiel only slept, and it is awakening now, ten years later. The survivors of Stonegarden must return to the ruined Abbey when they are called to rescue one of their own, a woman they had thought long dead. With the help of a teenage half-breed Native girl,  these broken people must reclaim their old skills and find the strength within themselves to save their fallen sister Anne-Marie from an ancient evil… and the fate of the Earth itself might well hang in the balance.

“Weird westerns have become a staple of New Pulp fiction,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “And in The Silver Riders, Greg Hatcher has delivered a masterful thriller filled with both adventure and dark fantasy set against the rugged landscape of the American West.”  Adam Show provides the moody cover and award winning artist Chris Kohler the black and white interior illustrations.  All beautifully laid out by Art Director Rob Davis.

This is Weird Western done the Airship 27 way!

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

Coming soon!

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.

Battered Silicon Dispatch Box - Rick Lai and William Patrick Maynard join editorial board!

I have missed the advice and wisdom of Robert Weinberg on the Editorial Board of The Battered Silicon Dispatch Box known as The Sacred Six. The Sacred Six has met irregularly over the years to break bread and morning coffee at Pulpfest (formerly Pulpcon) and The WIndy City Pulp and Paper Back Shows. Bob leaves big shoes to fill! Rick Lai and William Patrick Maynard have agreed to join the team so it will now be The Sacred Six with seven members, or perhaps "The Council of Seven" would be a better title? The left-handed gentleman will now be Bob's left foot; an the right-handed guy will be Bob's right foot going forward.

The first project on deck will be THE FU MANCHU ENCYCLOPEDIA compiled by Leonard P. Gray.

THE BIG BOOK OF THE CONTINENTAL OP - Coming November 28!
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.

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.

He's taken these and woven them into a discussion that explores the many facets of the various industries and Burroughs' place within them.

Now online!


Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. Presents The Girl From Farris's
 An all new web comic in our comic subscription lineup


In a dark alley, a young woman wearing very little clothing runs for her life.
A cop intervenes, saving her. But in a sinister twist, that cop takes her vulnerability and uses it as a weapon to coerce her into framing an evil man – the man she was initially running from – with murder. 
 
 In the courtroom, a successful business man sitting on the jury sees this woman – Maggie – not as a witness to be judged but as a woman to be saved. His anonymous interventions, ironically, helps Maggie gain a better life while ensnaring him in the same trap she encountered – leading him down a path of personal and financial ruin and alcoholism.

Can two innocent people, facing evil, greed, and deceit, find real justice, and the possibility of happiness, when the only weapon they possess is a belief in each other?

See the first 4 strips of The Girl From Farris’s, free, and our entire lineup of 22 Edgar Rice Burroughs Comic Adventures.

A SOLDIER OF POLODA
Further Adventures Beyond the Farthest Star
By Lee Strong

Now available in softcover!

Like fellow Earthman, Tangor from the story Beyond the Farthest Star, American OSS officer Thomas Randolph is mysteriously teleported to a foreign planet where he lands in the center of a 100-year war that mirrors the Allied Powers’ struggle against Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich.

Unlike Tangor, Randolph – now Tomas Ran – finds himself behind enemy lines where he gains a first-hand view of the inner workings of the corrupt Kapar empire. Will Tomas, using his OSS skills, be able to devise a plan to escape with the beautiful Unisan prisoner, Loris Kiri, that will allow them to join her countrymen in their struggle against the Kapars?

American novelist Edgar Rice Burroughs debuted the world of Poloda in the pulp story Beyond the Farthest Star in 1940 just as Hitler’s Nazis marched across Europe and the Imperial Japanese extended their reach across the South Pacific. Burroughs’ youthful idealism regarding the nobility of America’s previous war efforts had given way to a mature perspective of the savagery of combat that stains every battlefield. Burroughs’ deeply-held views are reflected in this tale about a planet ravaged by 100 years of conflict as the nation of Unis devotes its entire existence to the struggle of freedom against tyranny.

Author Lee Strong created this second adventure on the planet Poloda, which lies beyond the Globular Cluster NGC 7006 ‘ 450,000 light years away from earth. Join Tomas Ran as he explores Poloda, battles Kapars, and finds love Beyond the Farthest Star.

Lee also worked for the US Department of Defense (DOD); changed international policy with a single report; deployed to Kuwait; saved taxpayers $5 million; and reformed the $2 billion DOD Personal Property Program. A Soldier of Poloda is Lee’s first novel. He is currently working on two Pellucidar novels with more to come. Lee’s motto: More Adventure ! More Excitement !! More Burroughs !!!

The Spider #51 Audiobook
Satan's Switchboard
by Wayne Rogers writing as Grant Stockbridge

Read by Nick Santa Maria

Now available!

Stillness like that of the cold tombs had descended upon America’s greatest city, and in that cheerless, ringing void, no man dared raise his voice above a whisper. For the Silencer was at work, his giant ear strained to catch the innermost secrets of every citizen, turning upon them a blackmail scourge such as the world had never seen, as he drove those helpless multitudes to wholesale suicide! Never before had Richard Wentworth been called upon to battle a crime-emperor so powerful. As he donned the Spider’s eerie armor, to take up the Silencer’s trail of faceless corpses — it meant war to the death with a monster whose reign extended clear into the sky, itself, and whose victims died whispering, in hell!

 
The Spider was the only pulp hero to suffer under a messiah complex of immense proportions. As Norvell W. Page—the Quentin Tarantino of pulp fiction as well as a former crime reporter and the primary creator behind the Spider—related his complicated backstory: “Wentworth had sworn his crusades of justice long ago solely because of his hatred of injustice, his great altruistic love for mankind.
 
“Oh, there had been personal reasons behind his initial foray beyond the law—a dear friend was being framed out of life and honor and home. And there had been the example of his father, who had died when Wentworth was scarcely in his teens, a great lawyer murdered by criminals because he had dared defy them to save an innocent man they had made their scapegoat.”
 
Nick Santa Maria once again brings the Spider to life in Satan's Switchboard. Originally published in The Spider magazine, December, 1937.

Secret Agent "X" #22 Audiobook
Brand of the Metal Maiden
by G. T. Fleming-Roberts writing as Brant House

Read by Milton Bagby

Now available!


A nameless mystery man with a wartime past, backed by a shadowy group of powerful philanthropists, Secret Agent “X” took on the toughest assignments of the dirty thirties. Operating out of the half-haunted Montgomery Mansion, “X” was also known as the Man of a Thousand Faces. A past master of disguise, he infiltrated the Underworld to crush crime in all of its hideous manifestations.

A music master was the Emperor Zero––master of murder music. For his pupils danced a mad rhythm into the grave. Young people they were; but as they danced they aged––the years blended into seconds. Young faces became furrowed with the mark of time. Their hair became white as frost. Mummies they became–– in silks and satins and modern dinner coats...Secret Agent “X” hurled his crime-crushing organization against the Emperor Zero. However, Agent “X” found himself and enmeshed in the hilarious dance to hell.
 
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…..
 
No one knew who Secret Agent “X” really was. Not his readers. Not his editors. Not even his writer, conceivably. To this day in the 21st Century, his true identity is still a deep mystery. That’s keeping a secret!
 
Follow the Man of a Thousand Faces as he confronts the menace of Brand of the Metal Maiden, ripped from the pages of Secret Agent “X” magazine, January 1936 and read with chilling intensity by Milton Bagby.
 
Performed by 2017 Audie Awards winner, voice actor Milton Bagby.

Airship 27 Productions
THE SILVER RIDERS
Six Guns and Sorcery!
Now available!

Airship 27 Productions proudly announces the release of its latest title, The Silver Riders by author Greg Hatcher.

In 1868, six people sought refuge at a hidden enclave in the high desert country of eastern Oregon: A brilliant female doctor dying of a rare disease. A Confederate deserter. Two refugees from a lynch mob. A former slave. A womanizing shootist. These were the first acolytes of Stonegarden Abbey, learning the secrets of Hermetic magic under the tutelage of the mysterious prophet Ezekiel Reardon. But Ezekiel had an agenda of his own, and their time at Stonegarden ended in fire and tragedy.

Those left alive thought the tragedy was behind them. But the dark power they believed was gone and buried with Ezekiel only slept, and it is awakening now, ten years later. The survivors of Stonegarden must return to the ruined Abbey when they are called to rescue one of their own, a woman they had thought long dead. With the help of a teenage half-breed Native girl,  these broken people must reclaim their old skills and find the strength within themselves to save their fallen sister Anne-Marie from an ancient evil… and the fate of the Earth itself might well hang in the balance.

“Weird westerns have become a staple of New Pulp fiction,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “And in The Silver Riders, Greg Hatcher has delivered a masterful thriller filled with both adventure and dark fantasy set against the rugged landscape of the American West.”  Adam Show provides the moody cover and award winning artist Chris Kohler the black and white interior illustrations.  All beautifully laid out by Art Director Rob Davis.

This is Weird Western done the Airship 27 way!

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.

Battered Silicon Dispatch Box - Rick Lai and William Patrick Maynard join editorial board!

I have missed the advice and wisdom of Robert Weinberg on the Editorial Board of The Battered Silicon Dispatch Box known as The Sacred Six. The Sacred Six has met irregularly over the years to break bread and morning coffee at Pulpfest (formerly Pulpcon) and The WIndy City Pulp and Paper Back Shows. Bob leaves big shoes to fill! Rick Lai and William Patrick Maynard have agreed to join the team so it will now be The Sacred Six with seven members, or perhaps "The Council of Seven" would be a better title? The left-handed gentleman will now be Bob's left foot; an the right-handed guy will be Bob's right foot going forward.

The first project on deck will be THE FU MANCHU ENCYCLOPEDIA compiled by Leonard P. Gray.

THE BIG BOOK OF THE CONTINENTAL OP - Coming November 28!
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.

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.

by Clive Cussler & Boyd Morrison


Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon sail into a perfect storm of danger to try to stop a new world war, in a thrilling suspense novel from the #1 New York Times-bestselling grand master of adventure.

Hired to search for a collection of paintings worth half a billion dollars, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon soon find themselves in much deeper waters. The vicious leader of a Filipino insurgency is not only using them to finance his attacks, he has stumbled upon one of the most lethal secrets of World War II: a Japanese-developed drug, designed, but never used, to turn soldiers into super-warriors. To stop him, the Oregon must not only take on the rebel commander, but a South African mercenary intent on getting his own hands on the drug, a massive swarm of torpedo drones targeting the U.S. Navy, an approaching megastorm--and, just possibly, a war that could envelop the entire Asian continent.

A SOLDIER OF POLODA
Further Adventures Beyond the Farthest Star
By Lee Strong

Now available in softcover!

Like fellow Earthman, Tangor from the story Beyond the Farthest Star, American OSS officer Thomas Randolph is mysteriously teleported to a foreign planet where he lands in the center of a 100-year war that mirrors the Allied Powers’ struggle against Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich.

Unlike Tangor, Randolph – now Tomas Ran – finds himself behind enemy lines where he gains a first-hand view of the inner workings of the corrupt Kapar empire. Will Tomas, using his OSS skills, be able to devise a plan to escape with the beautiful Unisan prisoner, Loris Kiri, that will allow them to join her countrymen in their struggle against the Kapars?

American novelist Edgar Rice Burroughs debuted the world of Poloda in the pulp story Beyond the Farthest Star in 1940 just as Hitler’s Nazis marched across Europe and the Imperial Japanese extended their reach across the South Pacific. Burroughs’ youthful idealism regarding the nobility of America’s previous war efforts had given way to a mature perspective of the savagery of combat that stains every battlefield. Burroughs’ deeply-held views are reflected in this tale about a planet ravaged by 100 years of conflict as the nation of Unis devotes its entire existence to the struggle of freedom against tyranny.

Author Lee Strong created this second adventure on the planet Poloda, which lies beyond the Globular Cluster NGC 7006 ‘ 450,000 light years away from earth. Join Tomas Ran as he explores Poloda, battles Kapars, and finds love Beyond the Farthest Star.


AUTHOR
Lee Strong’s heart was captured by the dinosaurs found At the Earth’s Core in 1962. He has been a Burroughs reader ever since. Lee also worked for the US Department of Defense (DOD); changed international policy with a single report; deployed to Kuwait; saved taxpayers $5 million; and reformed the $2 billion DOD Personal Property Program. A Soldier of Poloda is Lee’s first novel. He is currently working on two Pellucidar novels with more to come. Lee’s motto: More Adventure ! More Excitement !! More Burroughs !!!

JAMES BOND: VARGR TPB - Arriving in comic shops November 15!
(Writer) Warren Ellis (Art) Jason Masters
Cover: Gabriel Hardman

After a mission of vengeance in Helsinki, James Bond returns to London and assumes the workload of a fallen 00 Section agent. His new mission takes him to Berlin, presumably to break up an agile drug-trafficking operation. But Bond has no idea of the forces ranged in secret against him, the full range of an operation that’s much scarier and more lethal than he could possibly imagine. Berlin is about to catch fire… and James Bond is trapped inside.

Dynamite Entertainment proudly presents VARGR, the debut storyline in the all-new James Bond comic book series, as crafted by masterful writer Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan, The Authority) and artist Jason Masters (Batman Incorporated, Guardians of the Galaxy).

SPACEHOUNDS OF IPC

A good many of us, who are now certain beyond a doubt that space travel will forever remain in the realm of the impossible, probably would, if a rocket that were shot to the moon, for instance, did arrive, and perhaps return to give proof of its safe arrival on our satellite, accept the phenomenon in a perfectly blase, twentieth century manner. Dr. Smith, that phenomenal writer of classic scientific fiction, seems to have become so thoroughly convinced of the advent of interplanetary travel that it is difficult for the reader to feel, after finishing "Spacehounds of IPC," that travel in the great spaces is not already an established fact. Dr. Smith, as a professional chemist, is kept fairly busy. As a writer, he is satisfied with nothing less than perfection. For that reason, a masterpiece from his pen has become almost an annual event. We know you will like "Spacehounds" even better than the "Skylark" series.

Four new tales as part of Paizo's groundbreaking "Worldscape" saga, drawing the greatest fantasy heroes of literature and comics into the mythos of their award-winning fantasy world and tabletop RPG!

In "Rebels Without a Planet", a battle against a vicious red dragon maroons John Carter and the Martian Tars Tarkas in a dangerous jungle filled with monsters and the greatest soldiers of three worlds... including the Warlord of Mars' old adversary from the Civil War!

In "Forest of Nightmares", Tarzan clashes head-on with the original feral heroes of mythology: the demigods Romulus and Remus! The Lord of the Jungle must then brave the deadly wilds of the Worldscape to free his friends from slavery!

In "King of the Goblins", the iconic antihero and half-elf Seltyiel finds himself in the gladiatorial Worldscape, facing off against two of Earth's most sinister figures... while hassled by four trouble-prone goblins who look to him as their appointed chief!

ABOVE THE TIMBERLINE - Now available and highly recommended!
by Gregory Manchess  (Author, Illustrator)


From renowned artist Gregory Manchess comes a lavishly painted novel about the son of a famed polar explorer searching for his stranded father, and a lost city buried under snow in an alternate future.

When it started to snow, it didn’t stop for 1,500 years. The Pole Shift that ancient climatologists talked about finally came, the topography was ripped apart and the weather of the world was changed—forever. Now the Earth is covered in snow, and to unknown depths in some places.

In this world, Wes Singleton leaves the academy in search of his father, the famed explorer Galen Singleton, who was searching for a lost city until Galen’s expedition was cut short after being sabotaged. But Wes believes his father is still alive somewhere above the timberline.

Fully illustrated with over 120 pieces of full-page artwork throughout, Above the Timberline is a stunning and cinematic combination of art and novel.

The Cross-Eyed Bear by Dorothy B. Hughes
The old man died, leaving a legacy.  It was three million dollars.  It was three sons. 
It was murder. Time was getting short.  Whoever had to be killed would have to killed quick. 
And into this viper’s nest of cruelty and horror walked a shy, plain New England girl. 
She needed a job, she said simply.  But she had a better, bloodier reason…

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 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.
