The Spider #1: The Red Death Rain
By Norvell W. Page, writing as Grant Stockbridge
A woman lighted a cigarette, puffed it a few times, and began to scream, to tear her clothes from her body. Her head twisted back between her shoulders and she died a horrible convulsive death-death from tobacco smoke! The lascivious cultist, Deacon Coslin, had seen his mad prophecy fulfilled… for already other smokers, everywhere throughout the land, were dying by tens of thousands! With Richard Wentworth’s beloved Nita in the power of the enemy, facing an unspeakable death; with his faithful servants drugged and out of the battle; with the police hounding hint and the arch-criminal foreseeing every strategy, how can the Spider combat the overwhelming odds aligned against him? How can he save his compatriots from the Red Death Rain—save the land he loves from domination by an ambition-twisted brain?


$13.95 softcover

Operator 5 #8: The Green Death Mists
By Curtis Steele, Frederick C. Davis, John Fleming Gould

The mad Emperor, warrior descendant of the ravagers of Asia, unleashed a new, horrible, ingenious weapon against the American people. While slant-eyed Mongols bent over a powerful death-machine, a thousand miles away, the air became unbreathable! Men and women and children—all living things—gasped for life-giving oxygen, and with searing, heaving lungs, fell strangled by the mysterious, deadly element. Against these demoniacal hordes, one man alone—Operator 5—struggles while red revolt and destruction blasts America!

Dime Detective, Max Brand, H. Bedford-Jones, and the complete Scientific Club by Ray Cummings
headline a lineup of 14 new titles to see print this August.
 Altus Press will have them in stock & available for order at www.altuspress.com or
via Mike Chomko’s table at the Pulpfest 2019 Show in Pittsburgh, PA, on August 15.


The list of titles includes:


The Complete Tales of the Scientific Club (Deluxe Edition)
by Ray Cummings
introduction by Will Murray, illustrated by Joseph A. Farren, F.M. Follett, Virgil Finlay, Roger B. Morrison,
Frank R. Paul, Norman Saunders, Amos Sewell, Modest Stein, Lawrence Sterne Stevens, and Raymond Wardell


One of the most historically significant Twentieth Century science fiction series ever published is at last collected. A pioneer in pulp science fiction, Ray Cummings inspired an entirely-new fiction genre with his influential story originally published in 1919, The Girl in the Golden Atom, which introduced the world to a series of short stories and novels known as his “Matter, Space and Time” range.

This suite of stories featured the Scientific Club: a group of New York-based socialites of revolving membership who either recounted these tales of fantastic science—or were directly involved in these tales which originally appeared in the top magazines of the 1920s: All Story Weekly, Argosy, Detective Story Magazine, Flynn’s, and Science and Invention, among others.

This collection assembles all of the Scientific Club stories, sourced directly from their original magazine appearances… most of which have never before been reprinted. In addition, this deluxe edition includes all of Cummings’ Scientific Club stories which appeared exclusively in the United Kingdom. It also gathers the later Scientific Club stories from a brief revival in the mid-1930s.

No stone has been left unturned for this edition: two hitherto-unknown Scientific Club stories were discovered, and these have been included, along with 26 other stories. And among the many bonus features is a rare, alternate, early version of one of the Scientific Club stories.

Rounded out by vintage illustrations by Virgil Finlay, Frank R. Paul, Norman Saunders, Amos Sewell, Modest Stein, and Lawrence Sterne Stevens, and with an all-new introduction by Will Murray, The Complete Tales of the Scientific Club is a book one hundred years in the making.

Dr. Yen Sin: The Complete Series (Deluxe Edition)
by Donald E. Keyhoe
introduction by William Patrick Maynard, afterword by Rick Lai

One of the great villain pulps from the 1930s is finally available in a complete, deluxe edition. Owing certain similarities to Sax Rohmer’s Fu Manchu, the Dr. Yen Sin series of three novels features “The Invisible Emperor” and his machinations to conquer the world using his unique mixture of futuristic science and ancient Asian technology. However, Yen Sin has met his match: “The Man Who Never Slept”—agent Michael Traile—who has the strange capability of not require sleep.

Includes an all-new introduction by current Fu Manchu author William Patrick Maynard, as well as a chronology of the character by Rick Lai.

8.5″x11″ | 179 pages | $60 deluxe casewrap hardcover

The 7th Day
by Frederick Faust
introduction by Andrew Salmon
illustrated by Charles LaSalle and Harold Wellington McCrea

Seven days to solve a murder! Tony Newcomen, a fiction writer, gets a call from his friend and mentor, Thomas Decker. Decker believes his life is in danger—but he’s unable to offer more information, as he is murdered while on the phone! Determined to uncover his friend’s killer amidst the idle rich and lavish estates of 1930s Florence, Newcomen will stop at nothing to bring the guilty to justice. He must walk a razor’s edge as he digs deeper into the case. The local police are out to get him, he’s in danger of losing his heart to the prime suspect and the murderer is more than willing to add another victim to end the investigation.

Out of print since its original magazine publication more than 80 years ago, The 7th Day appears here in book form for the first time. Rich in atmosphere and with an intriguing cast of characters, The 7th Day is Frederick Faust at his nuanced best.

Also included is the short story, “Devil Dog,” which takes readers into the frozen wasteland of Alaska for a harrowing, fast-paced tale of murder and revenge in the fevered quest for gold.

6″x9″ | 224 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover

A Seabold Fights
by Frederick Faust
introduction by Andrew Salmon
illustrated by Ralph Pallen Coleman

The best steel goes through the fire: Joseph Seabold hates the family business. But his aging cousin—running the Seabold Fruit Company—sees the young man as his successor. To test his mettle, he sends Seabold south of the border to the Republic of San Esteban where the company has a hand in the local politics to keep the company running. But revolution is brewing: the Republic is a powder keg about to explode! A naive mistake brands Seabold an enemy of the state and he has no choice but to join the revolution to overthrow the government. What follows is a roller-coaster ride of gritty battles, cold betrayals, steamy romance and heartless double crosses as only Frederick Faust can deliver.

This riveting tale has never been reprinted and appears in book form for the first time. Frederick Faust fans rejoice! This long neglected classic is back for a new audience to devour. This is Faust at his best.

The Complete Cases of Vee Brown, Volume 2 (The Dime Detective Library)
by Carroll John Daly
illustrated by John Fleming Gould

The creation of Carroll John Daly, father of the hard-boiled private eye, Vee Brown—AKA the Crime Machine—plied his trade in the pages of Dime Detective, the classic crime pulp that was second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Vivian “Vee” Brown leads two lives. Delicate-looking and small in stature, he lacks physical strength and endurance. But that doesn’t prevent him from being an effective special operative to the Manhattan District Attorney. In this capacity he often ignores the legal niceties of due process, shooting first and asking questions later. Many citizens view him as a hair-trigger gunman whose promiscuous killings make him little better than the vicious criminals he hunts. In his other life, Brown lives in a luxurious Park Avenue penthouse, paid for not with his modest civil-servant salary, but with the royalties he earns as a phenomenally successful composer of sentimental songs—a sideline he keeps secret. Both the police and the underworld refer to him as a “Killer of Men.” But the denizens of Tin Pan Alley know him as “Master of Melodies,” the prince of pop music.

Volume 2 features the Crime Machine’s battles with his greatest nemesis, the Emperor of Evil.

6″x9″ | 356 pages | $24.95 softcover | $34.95 hardcover

The Complete Cases of Bail-Bond Dodd, Volume 2 (The Dime Detective Library)
by Norbert Davis
illustrated by John Fleming Gould and Frank Kramer

Bailbondsman William “Bail-Bond” Dodd was the first series character that hard-boiled genius Norbert Davis created for Harry Steeger’s best detective pulp. Running for eight installments, Volume 2 collects the balance of the series. This unique series was one of the best Davis ever wrote for the pages of Dime Detective.

6″x9″ | 222 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover

The Complete Cases of Horatio Humberton, Volume 1 (The Dime Detective Library)
by J. Paul Suter
illustrated by John Fleming Gould

Meet the original necrologist sleuth: tall, gaunt Ho Humberton was a funeral director by day and detective at night… often those with more than a touch of the supernatural. Featuring the first half of this trend-setting detective series, this was one of the most popular series characters from the pages of Dime Detective. Also featuring the very first Horatio Humberton story, undiscovered for nearly 100 years.

6″x9″ | 337 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover

The Complete Cases of the Arson Dick (The Dime Detective Library)
by Leslie T. White
illustrations by John Fleming Gould

Detective Todd Naughton of the central-office arson squad investigated some of the strangest arson and murder cases ever to appear in Dime Detective Magazine. Originally seeing print during the peak 1936–37 period of Dime Detective, this four-story complete series has never before been reprinted.

6″x9″ | 230 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover

The Complete Cases of Anne Marsh (The Dime Detective Library)
by Arthur Leo Zagat
illustrated by Amos Sewell

Written during a period when the detective pulps showcased more gritty, realistic characters and situations, writer Arthur Leo Zagat penned a series of novelettes featuring the diminutive Anne Marsh, reluctant detective who must solve the death of her father and wage grim war in behalf of the city’s oppressed. Running for eight installments, this unique series was one of the few purposefully finite series from the pulp era, and one of the only female detective series characters to see print in a Popular Publications-published title.

6″x9″ | 298 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover

The Complete Cases of the Blue Barrel, Volume 1 (The Dime Detective Library)
by William E. Barrett
illustrated by John Fleming Gould

Written at the height of Dime Detective’s popularity, author William E. Barrett (Lilies of the Field) penned this series featuring newspaperman Dean Culver, whose column—The Blue Barrel—dispensed gossip on the criminal underworld. No one called Dean Culver the Blue Barrel—for no one knew he was the author of the underworld-gossip column signed with that name each night in the Morning Star. If the easy-money players had ever guessed that the man who paid them off was the Walter Winchell of the other side of the law, he’d he cashing in his own checks at the first turn of the wheel, instead of those of the gamblers he spun it for.

6″x9″ | 228 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover

Bedford-Jones details some of the most pivotable moments in history in this interconnected 17-part historical epic. The World Was Their Stage is one of the longest novels written by “the King of the Pulps,” H. Bedford-Jones, and has never before been reprinted.

Featuring scores of vintage story illustrations by George Avison, Merritt Berger, Pedar Cavanagh, John Richard Flanagan, Peter Kuhlhoff, J. Clinton Shepherd, and Raymond Sisley, along with a cover by Herbert Morton Stoops.

by H. Bedford-Jones

Written in the early days of the career of the prolific “King of the Pulps”—H. Bedford-Jones—Barbary Gold has never before been collected in book form. It’s a fast-paced adventure… the type which made H. Bedford-Jones one of the most beloved authors of the first half of the Twentieth Century.

THE FANTASY FICTION OF HANNES BOK
New Kickstarter campaign now online!
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Saturday, September 28, 2019


THE FANTASY FICTION OF HANNES BOK Kickstarter is now online!

We're excited to bring acclaimed artist Hannes Bok's three solo fantasy novels into hardcover for the first time!

Both THE SORCERER'S SHIP and BEYOND THE GOLDEN STAIR were previously published as part of Ballantine Books' Adult Fantasy paperback line. His first novel-length tale: STARSTONE WORLD, is a much shorter and darker piece, which has never been reprinted since it appeared in Science Fiction Quarterly #7, [Summer of 1942], over 75 years ago.

These aren't your conventional fantasies, although all the trappings are there. His novels have a sly humor with plots containing unconventional twists and turns; a strange metaphysical bent; and his artist's talent for glorious description.

THE FANTASY FICTION OF HANNES BOK's cover art is a never-before-published painting by Bok. A piece which mirrors the masculine, feminine, grotesque and transcendent archetypes which populate the novels within.

We'll be including Ballantine Adult Fantasy editor Lin Carter's introductions to THE SORCERER'S SHIP and BEYOND THE GOLDEN STAIR, plus an all-new introduction detailing the history of THE SORCERER'S SHIP by Bok collector, Professor William Lorenzo. Publisher, Robert T. Garcia will provide an introduction to STARSTONE WORLD. And we've discovered a number of unpublished photos of Bok to add to these intros as well.

Bok's pulp art for THE SORCERER'S SHIP is included, plus two paintings specified by the artist as illustrating that novel: a color reprise of an interior illustration and a color portrait of the creature Yanuk done for a fan.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
BLOOD 'N' THUNDER VOLUME 2 NUMBER 1
Now shipping!

Between 2002 and 2016, Blood ‘n’ Thunder was the premier journal for devotees of adventure, mystery and melodrama in American popular culture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This award-winning magazine, written by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, eventually expanded its readership to include casual fans of vintage storytelling mediums: pulp fiction, motion pictures, Old Time Radio drama, and so on. BnT, moribund for three years, has now returned in a new format but with the same excellence of writing and research. The articles and essays are scholarly without being dry or academic in nature; no publish-or-perish tedium here.

This revival issue covers a variety of subjects, all related to pulp fiction. David Kalb documents the history of the long-lost 1941-42 radio series featuring Street & Smith’s Avenger; he compares recently uncovered scripts to the novels from which they are adapted. David Saunders, whose father Norman was among the most prolific painters of lurid pulp covers, profiles the forgotten publisher J. Thomas Wood. Novelist and pop-culture historian Will Murray weighs in on pulp pulchritude—an appreciation of artists whose covers sported alluring women. Indefatigable researcher Rick Lai offers a detailed chronology of the Jimgrim saga, a multi-novel series penned by pulp-fiction giant Talbot Mundy. Blood ‘n’ Thunder editor Ed Hulse celebrates the Zorro centennial (he first appeared in a 1919 issue of the legendary All-Story Weekly) with a behind-the-scenes account of the making of Douglas Fairbanks’ 1920 swashbuckling hit The Mark of Zorro. Ed also documents the making of Hawk of the Wilderness, a 1938 cliffhanger serial adapted from the popular imitation-Tarzan novels that appeared in the venerable pulp Blue Book.

Before the trend toward specialization—before the hard-boiled dicks, before the Skylarks and Lensmen, before the Shadows and Spiders—pulp magazines offered escapist fiction that appealed to readers of all stripes. Virtually every story was suffused with the spirit of adventure; beyond that there was great variety in theme and setting. Qualities that became pronounced during the era of genre pulps were already evident in rough-paper yarns of the 20th century’s first two decades. Sadly, many great stories from this period are unknown to today’s pulp aficionados, especially inasmuch as the issues in which they appeared are hard-to-find collector’s items.

Murania Press has rescued from obscurity ten noteworthy novels originally published in such legendary pulps as Adventure, Blue Book, The Argosy, The Cavalier, and The Popular Magazine between 1908 and 1921. Some never saw publication in hard covers, others did but have been out of print for many decades. This group of exemplary stories, written by early pulpdom’s top fictioneers, is being republished as a series titled “Forgotten Classics of Pulp Fiction.”

Each book, measuring six by nine inches, utilizes the same cover design. Each is numbered on the spine, alphabetically by author. Each has an informative introductory essay putting the novel and its author in proper historical context for maximum appreciation by readers.

Stories in the “Forgotten Classics” series take place in a variety of locales: India, the Appalachian Mountains, the American West, the Gobi Desert, the Canadian northwest, the French Riviera, the South Seas, colonial-era Kentucky, and a mythical Balkan state. Within the group a reader will detect genre elements that would become more distinct and pronounced in pulp fiction of subsequent decades. But each novel is, at its core, a rousing adventure story clearly and vividly told. You’d never guess these gems were written a hundred or more years ago.

Murania Press has previously published four of the listed novels in its “Classic Pulp Reprint” series. Those books, now withdrawn from circulation, sold for $20 per title. Each of the “Forgotten Classics” volumes is priced at $16, and the entire set  of ten will be available at $120, which includes shipping to buyers in the United States.

The “Forgotten Classics of Pulp Fiction” will begin shipping on May 1. Between now and then we’ll be running individual blog posts with additional information on each book. For now, here are the titles and the magazines from which they have been sourced:

1.   H. Bedford-Jones, The Wilderness Trail. Originally published in the February 1915 issue of Blue Book.
2.   B. M. Bowers, The Spook Hills Mystery. Originally published in the November 7, 1914 issue of The Popular Magazine.
3.   George Bronson-Howard, The Return of Yorke Norroy. Originally published in the October 1908 issue of The Popular Magazine.
4.   A. M. Chisholm, Fur Pirates. Originally published in the October 20, 1915 issue of The Popular Magazine.
5.   J. Allan Dunn, Barehanded Castaways. Originally published in the December 20, 1921 issue of Adventure.
6.   George Allan England, The Elixir of Hate. Originally published in the August-November 1911 issues of The Cavalier.
7.   Francis Lynde, B. Typhosus Takes a Hand. Originally published in the October 20, 1921 issue of The Popular Magazine.
8.   Talbot Mundy, Yasmini the Incomparable. Originally published in the January 1914 and July-September 1915 issues of Adventure.
9.   Perley Poore Sheehan, The Abyss of Wonders. Originally published in the January 1915 issue of The Argosy.
10. Gordon Young, Savages. Originally published in the May 3, 1918 and July 18-September 3, 1919 issues of Adventure.

CAPTAIN FUTURE RETURNS!
Coming in November!


Allen Steele has announced that he will soon be continuing the adventures of Captain Future.

From Allen Steele's announcement:

This fall Experimenter Publishing, the publisher of AMAZING STORIES, will be launching EDMOND HAMILTON'S CAPTAIN FUTURE as a paperback/ebook series called "Amazing Stories Selects." The first issue, scheduled for release in November, will feature "Captain Future in Love", the long novella that ran as a two-part serial in AMAZING last year; it will also include an essay about the history of Captain Future and how and why I reinvented this classic SF character. This will kick off a four-part story cycle, "The Return of Ul Quorn", that will run for the next three issues; the second installment, "The Guns of Pluto", is now being written, and we're aiming to publish it early next year.

As I've said a couple of years ago when my first CF novel, AVENGERS OF THE MOON, was published by Tor, although my take on the character is derived from Edmond Hamilton's novels of the 1940's, this ain't your grandpa's Captain Future. Authorized by the Hamilton estate, this is an updated and revised version of the original pulp series. For example, feast your eyes on Curt Newton's ship, the "Comet II". Rob Caswell, the illustrator, and I put a lot of time and thought into designing a plausible new version of this classic ship ... and this is just a preview of things to come.

As things come together, AMAZING and I will release more info about EHCF, including where and how to purchase single issues and subscriptions.
If you're a fan of high adventure and space opera in the grand tradition, we think you'll like this. Stay tuned.

Clive Cussler: THE TITANIC SECRET (An Isaac Bell Adventure) - Now available!
by Clive Cussler & Jack Du Brul


A century apart, NUMA Director Dirk Pitt and detective Isaac Bell team up to unlock the truth about the most famous maritime disaster of all time.

In the present day, Pitt makes a daring rescue from inside an antiquated submersible in the waters off New York City. His reward afterwards is a document left behind a century earlier by legendary detective Isaac Bell--a document that re-opens a historical mystery...

In 1911, in Colorado, Isaac Bell is asked to look into an unexplained tragedy at Little Angel Mine, in which nine people died. His dangerous quest to answer the riddle leads to a larger puzzle centered on byzanium, a rare element with extraordinary powers and of virtually incalculable value. As he discovers that there are people who will do anything to control the substance, Isaac Bell will find out just how far he'll go to stop them.

HEROES OF ATLANTIS AND LEMURIA
By Manly Wade Wellman & Leigh Bracket

Now available!



In the late ‘70s legendary pulp fictioneer Manly Wade Wellman created a fantasy hero named Kardios, who was the last survivor of Atlantis. The five tales of Kardios Wellman penned appeared in anthologies such as Swords Against Darkness and Heroic Fantasy, which are long out of print. For decades sword and sorcery fans have clamored for all five stories to be reprinted in a single collection, but their cries fell on deaf ears.

We at DMR Books have heard your call! Just as we brought collections by Weird Tales writers Nictzin Dyalhis and Clifford Ball into paperback for the first time, we will do what has never been done before and present to you a Kardios collection!

Even better, the collection, which is entitled Heroes of Atlantis & Lemuria, will contain more than just Kardios stories. All three of Frederick Arnold Kummer, Jr.’s sword and sorcery stories set in Lemuria will be included as well. These Lemurian adventures have never been collected before, either. If that’s not enough, we’ll top it off with a hard to find Leigh Brackett story set in Mu!

Heroes of Atlantis & Lemuria will be available mid-September. That’s just a few short weeks away, so keep an eye out for it. It will be published in trade paperback and digital formats.

Dover Books
Joseph Payne Brennan
New titles available!


Acclaimed by Stephen King as "a master of the unashamed horror tale," Joseph Payne Brennan wrote hundreds of tales of terror, suspense, and fantasy. Collectors and fans will delight in this inexpensive reissue of Brennan's hard-to-find classic, Nine Horrors and a Dream. This collection, originally published by Arkham House in 1958, features stories published by Weird Tales and other pulp magazines of the 1950s — including the much-anthologized "Slime," which inspired the ever-popular thriller The Blob.

Less familiar but equally gripping tales include "Levitation," in which a carnival-goer has an unfortunate encounter with a hypnotist; "The Calamander Chest," the story of a low-priced antique that turns out to be no bargain; "Death in Peru," involving a lethal curse; the darkly humorous "On the Elevator"; and "The Green Parrot," which recounts a Good Samaritan's bad timing. Other selections include "Canavan's Back Yard," featuring a property with a gruesome history; "I'm Murdering Mr. Massington," which tells of a bizarre grasp at immortality; "The Hunt," a playfully creepy yarn about an obsessive chase; and "The Mail for Juniper Hill," in which a tipsy but determined postman refuses to let anything — even death — keep him from his appointed rounds.

The Shapes of Midnight

"Joseph Payne Brennan is one of the most effective writers in the horror genre, and he is certainly one of the writers I have patterned my own career upon," declared Stephen King. "In fact," he added, "The Shapes of Midnight could serve as an exercise-book for the young writer who aspires to pen and publish his or her own weird tales."

A poet as well as a writer of horror fiction, Brennan worked at Yale's Sterling Memorial Library as an acquisitions assistant for over 40 years. He wrote hundreds of stories for Weird Tales and other pulp magazines. This new edition of his increasingly rare compilation, The Shapes of Midnight, presents 10 of his best stories.

Selections include "Diary of a Werewolf," a first-person account of bloody sprees; "The Corpse of Charlie Rull," recounting the rampage of a radioactive zombie; "The Pavilion," which unfolds at an abandoned seaside haunt with something ghastly beneath its pilings; "House of Memory," a wistful look at the past's imaginative grip; "The Willow Platform," featuring the machinations of a self-styled warlock; and other chillingly memorable tales.

Harryhausen: The Lost Movies - Now available!
by John Walsh 


The official guide to the unrealised films of Ray Harryhausen.

Known for his iconic stop-motion creatures, Ray Harryhausen was at the forefront of Hollywood special effects for much of the 20th century. His films include One Million Years B.C., Clash of the Titans and Jason and the Argonauts, among others. But for every film that reaches the big screen, half a dozen projects are never realised.

Harryhausen: The Lost Movies explores Harryhausen's unrealised films, including unused ideas, projects he turned down and scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor. This book includes never-been-seen-before artwork, sketches, photos and test footage from the Harryhausen Foundation archives.

Hippocampus Press
Arthur Machen: Collected Fiction (3 Volume Set)
Now available!


This is the first complete edition of the fiction of Anglo-Welsh writer Arthur Machen (1863–1947) ever published. It includes the totality of his short fiction, novelettes, novels, and prose poems. While there is some debate as to what actually constitutes a short story in Machen’s work—especially given his bountiful array of journalism, some of which borders on fiction—the works in this volume are unquestionably narratives that feature one or more elements of fictional composition. A substantial majority of these works are tales of horror and the supernatural—a genre in which Machen has made a lasting and ever-expanding impression.

The edition has been prepared by S. T. Joshi, a leading authority on weird fiction and the author of The Weird Tale (1990) and Unutterable Horror: A History of Supernatural Fiction (2012).
Joshi has prepared textually corrected editions of the work of H. P. Lovecraft, Ambrose Bierce, and many other weird writers.


Volume 1: 1888–1895
This first volume contains his charming picaresque novel The Chronicle of Clemendy (1888), an exquisite imitation of the medieval narratives of Chaucer and Boccaccio. At this time Machen was a young journalist who had moved from his native Wales to London, and he wrote a number of humorous and slightly risqué sketches for fashionable London magazines. But then he published “The Great God Pan” (1894), one of the pioneering works in the entire range of weird fiction. It was condemned by contemporary reviewers as the work of a diseased mind. Machen followed it up with the episodic novel The Three Impostors (1895), containing the brilliant segments “The Novel of the Black Seal” (which features the Little People, a sub-human race lurking on the edges of civilization), “The Novel of the White Powder,” and other vivid narratives.

Volume 2: 1896–1910
This second volume of Machen’s collected fiction begins with Machen’s most accomplished novel, The Hill of Dreams (written in 1895–97 and published in 1907), which H. P. Lovecraft called a “memorable epic of the sensitive aesthetic mind.” It features Lucian Taylor, a young man from the country who struggles to become a writer in London. His ruminations on life, love, and authorship are extraordinarily poignant, and at one point he engages in a lengthy dream of being back in ancient Rome, in the town of Isca Silurum, near his birthplace in Wales. Later in 1897 Machen wrote a series of exquisite prose poems that were later published as Ornaments in Jade (1924). These ten vignettes display Machen’s luminous prose at its most evocative, and they touch upon the possibility of strange and wondrous phenomena concealed behind the outward façade of the mundane world. Machen’s most accomplished weird tale, “The White People,” is also found here. Its account of a young girl insidiously inculcated in the witch-cult, told entirely from her own perspective as she jots down her thoughts and impressions in a diary, achieves the pinnacle of clutching fear. A very different work is the short novel A Fragment of Life, telling of how a seemingly ordinary couple rediscover their sense of wonder in the world around them. The novel The Secret Glory (written around 1907) is a discursive novel that searingly condemns the British school system for destroying the imaginations of its pupils. The entire work—including the final two chapters, first published only in a limited edition in 1992—is included here.

Volume 3: 1911–1937
The third volume of Machen’s collected fiction begins with a tale, “The Thousand and One Nights,” that has never before been reprinted. It continues with a succession of tales that Machen wrote during and just after World War I, a cataclysm that shook Europe to its foundations. The most famous of these is “The Bowmen” (1914), a narrative of medieval soldiers coming to the rescue of besieged British infantrymen in France was widely believed to be a true account, in spite of Machen’s repeated protestations to the contrary. Machen’s final war tale, the short novel The Terror (1916), is an imperishable depiction of the revolt of animals against humanity’s rulership of the earth. In the 1920s Machen resorted to humor and satire to convey his dissatisfaction with the increasing secularization of his era, which he felt was robbing the imagination of wonder and mystery. He also began contributing to anthologies of original weird fiction edited by Cynthia Asquith and others, producing several memorable tales as a result, including “The Happy Children” and “The Islington Mystery.” Machen’s final novel, The Green Round (1933), is a subtle tale of supernatural menace, narrated in the blandly repertorial prose that Machen had developed in his later work. He then published two final volumes of weird tales, The Cosy Room and The Children of the Pool (both 1936), which contain many memorable tales, including “The Bright Boy” and “N.”

Introduction
Greatheart Silver
The Return of Greatheart Silver
Greatheart Silver in the First Command
The Grant Robeson Papers
Savage Shadow
Skinburn

The first three stories: “Greatheart Silver,” “The Return of Greatheart Silver,” and “Greatheart Silver in the First Command,” originally appeared in Byron Priess’ Weird Heroes series and have been collected before in the paperback, Greatheart Silver. These stories are Philip José Farmer at his most irreverent.

The next two items, “The Grant Robeson Papers,” and “Savage Shadow” also appeared in Weird Heroes, and set up a fantastic premise that was never fulfilled and will leave you wanting more.

The final story, “Skinburn” appeared in the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction and is the most scifi of these stories, while still giving a nod to the pulps.

Here’s something new—based on your feedback and buying trends, we’re only releasing this book in hardcover.

Greatheart Silver and Other Pulp Heroes will debut at FarmerCon XIV this coming August, but if you preorder the book now, we’re offering an “Early Bird Special” discount of $5 off! So you only $27 + shipping for this fascinating collection of Farmer paying homage to many of his literary heroes!

Please choose the correcting shipping option when preordering your copy.

OLD BONES (Nora Kelly) - Now available!
by Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child


The first in the groundbreaking Nora Kelly series from #1 bestselling authors Preston & Child blends the legend of the Donner party with a riveting suspense tale, taking the dynamic duo's work to new heights.

Nora Kelly, a young but successful curator with a series of important excavations already under her belt, is approached by the handsome Historian, Guy Porter, to lead an expedition unlike any other. Guy tells his story--one involving the ill-fated Donner Party, who became permanently lodged in the American consciousness in the winter of 1847, when the first skeletonized survivors of the party stumbled out of the California mountains, replete with tales of courage, resourcefulness, bad luck, murder, barbarism--and, finally, starvation and cannibalism.

Captivated by the Donner Party, Nora agrees and they venture into the Sierra Nevada in search of the camp. Quickly, they learn that the discovery of the missing starvation camp is just the tip of the iceberg--and that the real truth behind those long-dead pioneers is not only far more complex and surprising than they could have imagined...but it is one that puts them both in mortal danger from a very real, present-day threat in which the search for the lost party, and its fabled fortune in gold, are merely means to a horrifying end.

George Vanderburgh has been named the winner of the 2019 Munsey Award. Nominated by the general pulp community, George was selected by previous winners of the Lamont, Munsey, and Rusty Awards. The award is a fine art print created by David Saunders and published by Dan Zimmer of The Illustrated Press. It is presented annually to an individual or institution that has bettered the pulp community. Bill Lampkin — winner of the 2018 Munsey Award — presented this year’s award.

Our 2019 Munsey Award winner, GEORGE VANDERBURGH has published over 600 books through his Battered Silicon Dispatch Box, many of them directly related to the pulps. He was largely responsible for finally getting all of Fred Davis’ classic Moon Man stories back into print. And what about his Peter the Brazen series, his five volumes featuring the work of Seabury Quinn, THE COMPLEAT ADVENTURES OF THE PARK AVENUE HUNT CLUB, his Green Ghost set, THE COMPLEAT SAGA OF JOHN SOLOMON, THE ADVENTURES OF THE GOLDEN AMAZON, THE COMPLEAT ADVENTURES OF THE SUICIDE SQUAD, and others? He has also given us numerous collections of detective fiction, including volumes featuring the Thinking Machine, Dr. Thorndyke, and Martin Hewitt. Looking at his website, his future plans include several books reprinting pulp authors who have been unjustly forgotten. Along with the late Robert Weinberg, George served as the co-editor of Arkham House Publishers until the death of April Derleth. A regular attendee of pulp conventions, George has helped both longtime and new fans to collect the tales of some of the most fantastic heroes from the pulps. At this year’s PulpFest, George was part of our presentation, “The Game’s Afoot: Sherlock Holmes and the Pulps.”

Congratulations to George for this most deserved award.

New this week

"Crimes of Old London: The Scoured Silk" by Marjorie Bowen from ALL-STORY WEEKLY, June  8, 1918

Pseudonym of Gabrielle M. V. Long, (1885-1952)
THIS is a tale that might be told in many ways and from various points of view, hut it has to be gathered from here and there, a letter, a report, a diary, a casual reference.
In its day the thing was more than a passing wonder and it left a mark of abiding horror on the neighborhood, until the house and then the street were finally demolished, and legend being uprooted from the stones on which it grew, began to fade and finally withered away.

"When Oscar Went Wild" by W. C. Tuttle from ADVENTURE, July, 1916
A humorous western. Two cowboys are asked to find and bring back a tame cougar but catch no one but two wild bobcats. Getting rid of them becomes the real challenge.

"The Silver Clock" by Thomas F. Hart from ARGOSY, February. 1895
A young man visiting Russia accidentally becomes a pawn of anarchists.

G-8 and His Battle Aces #11 Audiobook
The Hurricane Patrol
by Robert J. Hogan

Read by Nick Santa Maria
  Now available!

They called G-8 the Flying Spy. History never recorded his exploits—and for good reason! No one would ever believe World War I was that wild!
 
Twice in one morning an American front-line company had been wiped out; every man killed — suffocated — without a chance to fight back. “I think I am about to die. A moment ago a Fokker dropped a missile into our trenches...” As G-8 read this message from a dead man he knew he held the first vital clue to the strangling death that had wiped out hundreds of Yanks. And grimly he vowed to follow it! G-8 scoured Paris, flew over the Mediterranean and even penetrated the wild country of northern Africa to combat this ghastly sky menace on dead man’s wings!


The origins of G-8’s flying adventures relate directly to his creator’s fascination with flying. As a young man, Robert J. Hogan, born in 1897, made his first flight on a trip to Colorado one summer en route to a ranch named the G-8. Completely taken with this then new marvel of transportation, Hogan joined the newly formed air corps in World War I, but never saw true action. He held onto his aviation interest, working as a supporter of the industry and as a pilot demonstrating some of the earliest models of airplanes for companies building them. With the 1929 Crash nearly ending the fairly newborn aviation market, Hogan had to find another way to earn money. Taking his very personal affection for airplanes well in hand, he wrote a story, submitted it to Wings Magazine, and became a paid writer. Not long after, G-8 and His Battle Aces would wing their way into the hearts and minds of pulp fans for generations.
 
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a deadly nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in ‘The Hurricane Patrol’. Originally published in the August 1934 issue of G-8 and His Battle Aces magazine.
 
Nick DeGregorio composed the music for the G-8 and His Battle Aces series of audiobooks.

Startling Stories Audiobook
Fall 1944

Read by Milton Bagby, Roberto Scarlato, and Roger Price

  Now available!


Startling Stories was the younger sibling of Thrilling Wonder Stories. It began in 1939 at the urging of science fiction fans who clamored for a full-length novel in each issue. At this point, Thrilling Wonder Stories contained a variety of novelets and short stories, but fans wanted something longer that allowed for more character development. And thus, Startling Stories was born. Each issue started off with a book-length novel, and was filled out with a variety of short stories, science columns, special features and, of course, letters to the editor. Some of science-fiction’s best authors appeared in Startling Stories, including luminaries such as Stanley G. Weinbaum, Eando Binder, Edmond Hamilton, and Alfred Bester. The magazine thrived through the 1940s and early 1950s, but fading revenues forced it to close with the Fall 1955 issue, after a 99-issue run. Startling Stories now returns with these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s listeners as audiobooks.

G-8 and His Battle Aces #11 eBook
August 1934

Now available!

Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.

G-8 and His Battle Aces rode the nostalgia boom ten years after World War I ended. These high-flying exploits were tall tales of a World War that might have been, featuring monster bats, German zombies, wolf-men, harpies, Martians, and even tentacled floating monsters. Most of these monstrosities were the work of Germany’s seemingly endless supply of mad scientists, chief of whom was G-8’s recurring Nemesis, Herr Doktor Krueger. G-8 battled Germany’s Halloween shock troops for over a decade, not ceasing until the magazine folded in the middle of World War II. G-8 and His Battle Aces return in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

The first three jackets are all reconstructed using scans of the original paintings for those covers.
THE WAR CHIEF alternate is based on art by noted western artist Maynard Dixon and you can read more about it here.


Please take a moment to read the four-page article  about the publishing of THE WAR CHIEF and why it meant so much to Ed Burroughs. I think you’ll be interested to find out that the book was one of the most well-researched novels he ever wrote (besides I AM A BARBARIAN), and, considering its point of view and many of the statements about white settlers, the US Army and the reasons for the Apache’s explicit savagery, certainly his most controversial.

Farewell Altus Press, Hello Steeger Books

Welcome to the new home of what was (for many years) AltusPress.com. Hopefully you’ve found your way here from redirects from altuspress.com… if so, please update your bookmarks.

Why the change?
Well, there are a few reasons. Several years ago, Altus Press was acquired by Steeger Properties, LLC, and there has been some degree of confusion in regards to the relationship between the two, such as on invoices sent from the website, on credit card charges, etc.

For the last couple of years, altuspress.com has sold other publishers’ books, in addition to its own. To make things more confounding, Steeger Properties also had its own imprints for certain publications. In the end, it made for more questions when things should’ve been made much easier to understand.

Now, all of Steeger Properties’ imprints have been grouped together under one pulp fiction superstore, steegerbooks.com. We’ve made it very clear how to navigate these imprints on this new site. More on this below.

The Altus Press imprint will live on and will be used on certain public domain and legacy book series, so it’s not disappearing.

The new website
We’ve heeded the suggestions that customers of Altus Press have supplied us to improve their shopping experience: this new site has a prominent search option at the top of every page. We’ve added additional options to browse books by author or illustrator, by series, and by imprint. It will now be easy to find many more related titles each time your start browsing our store.

In the near future, you’ll be able to peruse older titles’ front and back covers, and you’ll be able to preview their interiors, to give you a good look at the books’ contents.

While some of the these features will only be enabled for newer titles, we’ll be going back & adding them to older books too.

In addition to picking up the pace on new ebook releases, we’ll also be gradually releasing a new line of electronic pulp titles. More on these in the near future.

I’m a long-time Altus Press customer: what do I need to do?
Nothing! Your altuspress.com login should work seamlessly on steegerbooks.com, and you’ll be able to see your older purchases, edit your account details, etc. In addition, we’ll be adding a Wishlist feature in order to save and share pulp releases. We’re also beefing up the customer service sections of our website. We want to make this the place to go in order to get your pulp fiction publications and to remove as much hassle from the process as possible.

Please let us know via our Contact page if there are any broken elements on the site, what you think of our redesign, and what we can improve.

Thanks for your continued support!

The Spider #1: The Red Death Rain
By Norvell W. Page, writing as Grant Stockbridge
A woman lighted a cigarette, puffed it a few times, and began to scream, to tear her clothes from her body. Her head twisted back between her shoulders and she died a horrible convulsive death-death from tobacco smoke! The lascivious cultist, Deacon Coslin, had seen his mad prophecy fulfilled… for already other smokers, everywhere throughout the land, were dying by tens of thousands! With Richard Wentworth’s beloved Nita in the power of the enemy, facing an unspeakable death; with his faithful servants drugged and out of the battle; with the police hounding hint and the arch-criminal foreseeing every strategy, how can the Spider combat the overwhelming odds aligned against him? How can he save his compatriots from the Red Death Rain—save the land he loves from domination by an ambition-twisted brain?

Operator 5 #8: The Green Death Mists
By Curtis Steele, Frederick C. Davis, John Fleming Gould

The mad Emperor, warrior descendant of the ravagers of Asia, unleashed a new, horrible, ingenious weapon against the American people. While slant-eyed Mongols bent over a powerful death-machine, a thousand miles away, the air became unbreathable! Men and women and children—all living things—gasped for life-giving oxygen, and with searing, heaving lungs, fell strangled by the mysterious, deadly element. Against these demoniacal hordes, one man alone—Operator 5—struggles while red revolt and destruction blasts America!

Dime Detective, Max Brand, H. Bedford-Jones, and the complete Scientific Club by Ray Cummings
headline a lineup of 14 new titles to see print this August.
 Altus Press will have them in stock & available for order at www.altuspress.com or

The list of titles includes:


The Complete Tales of the Scientific Club (Deluxe Edition)
by Ray Cummings
introduction by Will Murray, illustrated by Joseph A. Farren, F.M. Follett, Virgil Finlay, Roger B. Morrison,
Frank R. Paul, Norman Saunders, Amos Sewell, Modest Stein, Lawrence Sterne Stevens, and Raymond Wardell


One of the most historically significant Twentieth Century science fiction series ever published is at last collected. A pioneer in pulp science fiction, Ray Cummings inspired an entirely-new fiction genre with his influential story originally published in 1919, The Girl in the Golden Atom, which introduced the world to a series of short stories and novels known as his “Matter, Space and Time” range.

This suite of stories featured the Scientific Club: a group of New York-based socialites of revolving membership who either recounted these tales of fantastic science—or were directly involved in these tales which originally appeared in the top magazines of the 1920s: All Story Weekly, Argosy, Detective Story Magazine, Flynn’s, and Science and Invention, among others.

This collection assembles all of the Scientific Club stories, sourced directly from their original magazine appearances… most of which have never before been reprinted. In addition, this deluxe edition includes all of Cummings’ Scientific Club stories which appeared exclusively in the United Kingdom. It also gathers the later Scientific Club stories from a brief revival in the mid-1930s.

No stone has been left unturned for this edition: two hitherto-unknown Scientific Club stories were discovered, and these have been included, along with 26 other stories. And among the many bonus features is a rare, alternate, early version of one of the Scientific Club stories.

Rounded out by vintage illustrations by Virgil Finlay, Frank R. Paul, Norman Saunders, Amos Sewell, Modest Stein, and Lawrence Sterne Stevens, and with an all-new introduction by Will Murray, The Complete Tales of the Scientific Club is a book one hundred years in the making.

Dr. Yen Sin: The Complete Series (Deluxe Edition)
by Donald E. Keyhoe
introduction by William Patrick Maynard, afterword by Rick Lai

One of the great villain pulps from the 1930s is finally available in a complete, deluxe edition. Owing certain similarities to Sax Rohmer’s Fu Manchu, the Dr. Yen Sin series of three novels features “The Invisible Emperor” and his machinations to conquer the world using his unique mixture of futuristic science and ancient Asian technology. However, Yen Sin has met his match: “The Man Who Never Slept”—agent Michael Traile—who has the strange capability of not require sleep.

Includes an all-new introduction by current Fu Manchu author William Patrick Maynard, as well as a chronology of the character by Rick Lai.

The 7th Day
by Frederick Faust
introduction by Andrew Salmon
illustrated by Charles LaSalle and Harold Wellington McCrea

Seven days to solve a murder! Tony Newcomen, a fiction writer, gets a call from his friend and mentor, Thomas Decker. Decker believes his life is in danger—but he’s unable to offer more information, as he is murdered while on the phone! Determined to uncover his friend’s killer amidst the idle rich and lavish estates of 1930s Florence, Newcomen will stop at nothing to bring the guilty to justice. He must walk a razor’s edge as he digs deeper into the case. The local police are out to get him, he’s in danger of losing his heart to the prime suspect and the murderer is more than willing to add another victim to end the investigation.

Out of print since its original magazine publication more than 80 years ago, The 7th Day appears here in book form for the first time. Rich in atmosphere and with an intriguing cast of characters, The 7th Day is Frederick Faust at his nuanced best.

Also included is the short story, “Devil Dog,” which takes readers into the frozen wasteland of Alaska for a harrowing, fast-paced tale of murder and revenge in the fevered quest for gold.

A Seabold Fights
by Frederick Faust
introduction by Andrew Salmon
illustrated by Ralph Pallen Coleman

The best steel goes through the fire: Joseph Seabold hates the family business. But his aging cousin—running the Seabold Fruit Company—sees the young man as his successor. To test his mettle, he sends Seabold south of the border to the Republic of San Esteban where the company has a hand in the local politics to keep the company running. But revolution is brewing: the Republic is a powder keg about to explode! A naive mistake brands Seabold an enemy of the state and he has no choice but to join the revolution to overthrow the government. What follows is a roller-coaster ride of gritty battles, cold betrayals, steamy romance and heartless double crosses as only Frederick Faust can deliver.

This riveting tale has never been reprinted and appears in book form for the first time. Frederick Faust fans rejoice! This long neglected classic is back for a new audience to devour. This is Faust at his best.

The Complete Cases of Vee Brown, Volume 2 (The Dime Detective Library)
by Carroll John Daly
illustrated by John Fleming Gould

The creation of Carroll John Daly, father of the hard-boiled private eye, Vee Brown—AKA the Crime Machine—plied his trade in the pages of Dime Detective, the classic crime pulp that was second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Vivian “Vee” Brown leads two lives. Delicate-looking and small in stature, he lacks physical strength and endurance. But that doesn’t prevent him from being an effective special operative to the Manhattan District Attorney. In this capacity he often ignores the legal niceties of due process, shooting first and asking questions later. Many citizens view him as a hair-trigger gunman whose promiscuous killings make him little better than the vicious criminals he hunts. In his other life, Brown lives in a luxurious Park Avenue penthouse, paid for not with his modest civil-servant salary, but with the royalties he earns as a phenomenally successful composer of sentimental songs—a sideline he keeps secret. Both the police and the underworld refer to him as a “Killer of Men.” But the denizens of Tin Pan Alley know him as “Master of Melodies,” the prince of pop music.

Volume 2 features the Crime Machine’s battles with his greatest nemesis, the Emperor of Evil.

The Complete Cases of Bail-Bond Dodd, Volume 2 (The Dime Detective Library)
by Norbert Davis
illustrated by John Fleming Gould and Frank Kramer

Bailbondsman William “Bail-Bond” Dodd was the first series character that hard-boiled genius Norbert Davis created for Harry Steeger’s best detective pulp. Running for eight installments, Volume 2 collects the balance of the series. This unique series was one of the best Davis ever wrote for the pages of Dime Detective.

6″x9″ | 222 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover

The Complete Cases of Horatio Humberton, Volume 1 (The Dime Detective Library)
by J. Paul Suter
illustrated by John Fleming Gould

Meet the original necrologist sleuth: tall, gaunt Ho Humberton was a funeral director by day and detective at night… often those with more than a touch of the supernatural. Featuring the first half of this trend-setting detective series, this was one of the most popular series characters from the pages of Dime Detective. Also featuring the very first Horatio Humberton story, undiscovered for nearly 100 years.

6″x9″ | 337 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover

The Complete Cases of the Arson Dick (The Dime Detective Library)
by Leslie T. White
illustrations by John Fleming Gould

Detective Todd Naughton of the central-office arson squad investigated some of the strangest arson and murder cases ever to appear in Dime Detective Magazine. Originally seeing print during the peak 1936–37 period of Dime Detective, this four-story complete series has never before been reprinted.

6″x9″ | 230 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover

The Complete Cases of Anne Marsh (The Dime Detective Library)
by Arthur Leo Zagat
illustrated by Amos Sewell

Written during a period when the detective pulps showcased more gritty, realistic characters and situations, writer Arthur Leo Zagat penned a series of novelettes featuring the diminutive Anne Marsh, reluctant detective who must solve the death of her father and wage grim war in behalf of the city’s oppressed. Running for eight installments, this unique series was one of the few purposefully finite series from the pulp era, and one of the only female detective series characters to see print in a Popular Publications-published title.

6″x9″ | 298 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover

The Complete Cases of the Blue Barrel, Volume 1 (The Dime Detective Library)
by William E. Barrett
illustrated by John Fleming Gould

Written at the height of Dime Detective’s popularity, author William E. Barrett (Lilies of the Field) penned this series featuring newspaperman Dean Culver, whose column—The Blue Barrel—dispensed gossip on the criminal underworld. No one called Dean Culver the Blue Barrel—for no one knew he was the author of the underworld-gossip column signed with that name each night in the Morning Star. If the easy-money players had ever guessed that the man who paid them off was the Walter Winchell of the other side of the law, he’d he cashing in his own checks at the first turn of the wheel, instead of those of the gamblers he spun it for.

Bedford-Jones details some of the most pivotable moments in history in this interconnected 17-part historical epic. The World Was Their Stage is one of the longest novels written by “the King of the Pulps,” H. Bedford-Jones, and has never before been reprinted.

by H. Bedford-Jones

Written in the early days of the career of the prolific “King of the Pulps”—H. Bedford-Jones—Barbary Gold has never before been collected in book form. It’s a fast-paced adventure… the type which made H. Bedford-Jones one of the most beloved authors of the first half of the Twentieth Century.

THE FANTASY FICTION OF HANNES BOK
New Kickstarter campaign now online!
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Saturday, September 28, 2019


THE FANTASY FICTION OF HANNES BOK Kickstarter is now online!

We're excited to bring acclaimed artist Hannes Bok's three solo fantasy novels into hardcover for the first time!

Both THE SORCERER'S SHIP and BEYOND THE GOLDEN STAIR were previously published as part of Ballantine Books' Adult Fantasy paperback line. His first novel-length tale: STARSTONE WORLD, is a much shorter and darker piece, which has never been reprinted since it appeared in Science Fiction Quarterly #7, [Summer of 1942], over 75 years ago.

These aren't your conventional fantasies, although all the trappings are there. His novels have a sly humor with plots containing unconventional twists and turns; a strange metaphysical bent; and his artist's talent for glorious description.

THE FANTASY FICTION OF HANNES BOK's cover art is a never-before-published painting by Bok. A piece which mirrors the masculine, feminine, grotesque and transcendent archetypes which populate the novels within.

We'll be including Ballantine Adult Fantasy editor Lin Carter's introductions to THE SORCERER'S SHIP and BEYOND THE GOLDEN STAIR, plus an all-new introduction detailing the history of THE SORCERER'S SHIP by Bok collector, Professor William Lorenzo. Publisher, Robert T. Garcia will provide an introduction to STARSTONE WORLD. And we've discovered a number of unpublished photos of Bok to add to these intros as well.

Bok's pulp art for THE SORCERER'S SHIP is included, plus two paintings specified by the artist as illustrating that novel: a color reprise of an interior illustration and a color portrait of the creature Yanuk done for a fan.

THE TYRANNY OF THE WORD
by Brian Stableford
cover by Mike Hoffman

The novel is set in the 1480s, during the war in which the French annexed Bretagne.

At the Benedictine Abbey in Paimpol, a scholarly monk named Ollivier, reputed to have practiced necromancy, is buried under the watchful eyes of two Dominican heresy hunters, the burial only attended by his fellow scholar Brother Primael, who believes him to be innocent of any wrongdoing, and believes the same of Gilles de Rais, whose court at Tiffauges both men visited in their youth.

Before falling ill, Ollivier had spent three months at the Château de Tardivel and the forested region of Herbriant, where the epileptic chatelaine was once locked away by her husband as a madwoman, and her daughter Aidrena, is also chronically ill, while the young Vicomte who has recently inherited the title, Corentin, has indeed been practicing necromancy with Ollivier’s aid. Primael is sent to Tardivel at Corentin’s request, ostensibly to give succor to his mother and sister, but actually to assist him in his experiments in necromancy, now aimed at the summoning of Ollivier’s spirit.

Primael is immediately engulfed in a nightmarish series of events, both hallucinatory and real, through which he must negotiate a path in the hope of deciding in which direction virtue really lies, and solving the puzzle of exactly what Ollivier and Corentin had accomplished in their necromancy, and what its consequences might be for the inhabitants of Tardivel.

THE SPELLS OF FRANKENSTEIN
by Frank Schildiner
cover by Mike Hoffman

1900: Gouroull, Victor Frankenstein’s lethal creation, wanders the snowy steppes in the heart of frozen Siberia and receives an offer he cannot refuse. If he opens a path for the ancient, alien beings known as the Outer Gods, their servant will provide him a perfect mate.

Gouroull must defeat demons, crazed collectors, inhuman monsters, an undying Roman Emperor, and a strange man named Whateley in his worldwide quest for his mate. Will his new ally, an odd holy man named Grigori Rasputin, fulfill his end of the bargain?

Based on Mary Shelley's classic work of terror, as reinterpreted by Academy award-winning screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière in the 1950s, The Spells of Frankenstein tells the story of an evil, violent version of the monster. The creature, known as Gouroull, roams the world, his plans both fiendish and lethal for all life on Earth.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
BLOOD 'N' THUNDER VOLUME 2 NUMBER 1
Now shipping!

Between 2002 and 2016, Blood ‘n’ Thunder was the premier journal for devotees of adventure, mystery and melodrama in American popular culture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This award-winning magazine, written by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, eventually expanded its readership to include casual fans of vintage storytelling mediums: pulp fiction, motion pictures, Old Time Radio drama, and so on. BnT, moribund for three years, has now returned in a new format but with the same excellence of writing and research. The articles and essays are scholarly without being dry or academic in nature; no publish-or-perish tedium here.

This revival issue covers a variety of subjects, all related to pulp fiction. David Kalb documents the history of the long-lost 1941-42 radio series featuring Street & Smith’s Avenger; he compares recently uncovered scripts to the novels from which they are adapted. David Saunders, whose father Norman was among the most prolific painters of lurid pulp covers, profiles the forgotten publisher J. Thomas Wood. Novelist and pop-culture historian Will Murray weighs in on pulp pulchritude—an appreciation of artists whose covers sported alluring women. Indefatigable researcher Rick Lai offers a detailed chronology of the Jimgrim saga, a multi-novel series penned by pulp-fiction giant Talbot Mundy. Blood ‘n’ Thunder editor Ed Hulse celebrates the Zorro centennial (he first appeared in a 1919 issue of the legendary All-Story Weekly) with a behind-the-scenes account of the making of Douglas Fairbanks’ 1920 swashbuckling hit The Mark of Zorro. Ed also documents the making of Hawk of the Wilderness, a 1938 cliffhanger serial adapted from the popular imitation-Tarzan novels that appeared in the venerable pulp Blue Book.

Before the trend toward specialization—before the hard-boiled dicks, before the Skylarks and Lensmen, before the Shadows and Spiders—pulp magazines offered escapist fiction that appealed to readers of all stripes. Virtually every story was suffused with the spirit of adventure; beyond that there was great variety in theme and setting. Qualities that became pronounced during the era of genre pulps were already evident in rough-paper yarns of the 20th century’s first two decades. Sadly, many great stories from this period are unknown to today’s pulp aficionados, especially inasmuch as the issues in which they appeared are hard-to-find collector’s items.

Murania Press has rescued from obscurity ten noteworthy novels originally published in such legendary pulps as Adventure, Blue Book, The Argosy, The Cavalier, and The Popular Magazine between 1908 and 1921. Some never saw publication in hard covers, others did but have been out of print for many decades. This group of exemplary stories, written by early pulpdom’s top fictioneers, is being republished as a series titled “Forgotten Classics of Pulp Fiction.”

Each book, measuring six by nine inches, utilizes the same cover design. Each is numbered on the spine, alphabetically by author. Each has an informative introductory essay putting the novel and its author in proper historical context for maximum appreciation by readers.

Stories in the “Forgotten Classics” series take place in a variety of locales: India, the Appalachian Mountains, the American West, the Gobi Desert, the Canadian northwest, the French Riviera, the South Seas, colonial-era Kentucky, and a mythical Balkan state. Within the group a reader will detect genre elements that would become more distinct and pronounced in pulp fiction of subsequent decades. But each novel is, at its core, a rousing adventure story clearly and vividly told. You’d never guess these gems were written a hundred or more years ago.

Murania Press has previously published four of the listed novels in its “Classic Pulp Reprint” series. Those books, now withdrawn from circulation, sold for $20 per title. Each of the “Forgotten Classics” volumes is priced at $16, and the entire set  of ten will be available at $120, which includes shipping to buyers in the United States.

The “Forgotten Classics of Pulp Fiction” will begin shipping on May 1. Between now and then we’ll be running individual blog posts with additional information on each book. For now, here are the titles and the magazines from which they have been sourced:

1.   H. Bedford-Jones, The Wilderness Trail. Originally published in the February 1915 issue of Blue Book.
2.   B. M. Bowers, The Spook Hills Mystery. Originally published in the November 7, 1914 issue of The Popular Magazine.

CAPTAIN FUTURE RETURNS!
Coming in November!


Allen Steele has announced that he will soon be continuing the adventures of Captain Future.

From Allen Steele's announcement:

This fall Experimenter Publishing, the publisher of AMAZING STORIES, will be launching EDMOND HAMILTON'S CAPTAIN FUTURE as a paperback/ebook series called "Amazing Stories Selects." The first issue, scheduled for release in November, will feature "Captain Future in Love", the long novella that ran as a two-part serial in AMAZING last year; it will also include an essay about the history of Captain Future and how and why I reinvented this classic SF character. This will kick off a four-part story cycle, "The Return of Ul Quorn", that will run for the next three issues; the second installment, "The Guns of Pluto", is now being written, and we're aiming to publish it early next year.

As I've said a couple of years ago when my first CF novel, AVENGERS OF THE MOON, was published by Tor, although my take on the character is derived from Edmond Hamilton's novels of the 1940's, this ain't your grandpa's Captain Future. Authorized by the Hamilton estate, this is an updated and revised version of the original pulp series. For example, feast your eyes on Curt Newton's ship, the "Comet II". Rob Caswell, the illustrator, and I put a lot of time and thought into designing a plausible new version of this classic ship ... and this is just a preview of things to come.

As things come together, AMAZING and I will release more info about EHCF, including where and how to purchase single issues and subscriptions.
If you're a fan of high adventure and space opera in the grand tradition, we think you'll like this. Stay tuned.

Clive Cussler: THE TITANIC SECRET (An Isaac Bell Adventure) - Coming September 10!
by Clive Cussler & Jack Du Brul


A century apart, NUMA Director Dirk Pitt and detective Isaac Bell team up to unlock the truth about the most famous maritime disaster of all time.

In the present day, Pitt makes a daring rescue from inside an antiquated submersible in the waters off New York City. His reward afterwards is a document left behind a century earlier by legendary detective Isaac Bell--a document that re-opens a historical mystery...

In 1911, in Colorado, Isaac Bell is asked to look into an unexplained tragedy at Little Angel Mine, in which nine people died. His dangerous quest to answer the riddle leads to a larger puzzle centered on byzanium, a rare element with extraordinary powers and of virtually incalculable value. As he discovers that there are people who will do anything to control the substance, Isaac Bell will find out just how far he'll go to stop them.

HEROES OF ATLANTIS AND LEMURIA
By Manly Wade Wellman & Leigh Bracket

Coming this month!



In the late ‘70s legendary pulp fictioneer Manly Wade Wellman created a fantasy hero named Kardios, who was the last survivor of Atlantis. The five tales of Kardios Wellman penned appeared in anthologies such as Swords Against Darkness and Heroic Fantasy, which are long out of print. For decades sword and sorcery fans have clamored for all five stories to be reprinted in a single collection, but their cries fell on deaf ears.

We at DMR Books have heard your call! Just as we brought collections by Weird Tales writers Nictzin Dyalhis and Clifford Ball into paperback for the first time, we will do what has never been done before and present to you a Kardios collection!

Even better, the collection, which is entitled Heroes of Atlantis & Lemuria, will contain more than just Kardios stories. All three of Frederick Arnold Kummer, Jr.’s sword and sorcery stories set in Lemuria will be included as well. These Lemurian adventures have never been collected before, either. If that’s not enough, we’ll top it off with a hard to find Leigh Brackett story set in Mu!

Heroes of Atlantis & Lemuria will be available mid-September. That’s just a few short weeks away, so keep an eye out for it. It will be published in trade paperback and digital formats.

Joseph Payne Brennan
New titles available!


Acclaimed by Stephen King as "a master of the unashamed horror tale," Joseph Payne Brennan wrote hundreds of tales of terror, suspense, and fantasy. Collectors and fans will delight in this inexpensive reissue of Brennan's hard-to-find classic, Nine Horrors and a Dream. This collection, originally published by Arkham House in 1958, features stories published by Weird Tales and other pulp magazines of the 1950s — including the much-anthologized "Slime," which inspired the ever-popular thriller The Blob.

Less familiar but equally gripping tales include "Levitation," in which a carnival-goer has an unfortunate encounter with a hypnotist; "The Calamander Chest," the story of a low-priced antique that turns out to be no bargain; "Death in Peru," involving a lethal curse; the darkly humorous "On the Elevator"; and "The Green Parrot," which recounts a Good Samaritan's bad timing. Other selections include "Canavan's Back Yard," featuring a property with a gruesome history; "I'm Murdering Mr. Massington," which tells of a bizarre grasp at immortality; "The Hunt," a playfully creepy yarn about an obsessive chase; and "The Mail for Juniper Hill," in which a tipsy but determined postman refuses to let anything — even death — keep him from his appointed rounds.

The Shapes of Midnight

"Joseph Payne Brennan is one of the most effective writers in the horror genre, and he is certainly one of the writers I have patterned my own career upon," declared Stephen King. "In fact," he added, "The Shapes of Midnight could serve as an exercise-book for the young writer who aspires to pen and publish his or her own weird tales."

A poet as well as a writer of horror fiction, Brennan worked at Yale's Sterling Memorial Library as an acquisitions assistant for over 40 years. He wrote hundreds of stories for Weird Tales and other pulp magazines. This new edition of his increasingly rare compilation, The Shapes of Midnight, presents 10 of his best stories.

Selections include "Diary of a Werewolf," a first-person account of bloody sprees; "The Corpse of Charlie Rull," recounting the rampage of a radioactive zombie; "The Pavilion," which unfolds at an abandoned seaside haunt with something ghastly beneath its pilings; "House of Memory," a wistful look at the past's imaginative grip; "The Willow Platform," featuring the machinations of a self-styled warlock; and other chillingly memorable tales.

Edgar Rice Burroughs Books
TARZAN AND THE VALLEY OF GOLD
By Fritz Leiber
Cover by Richard Hescox

Now available!

At long last, Tarzan and the Valley of Gold, Fritz Leiber's classic novel of the Lord of the Jungle, is back in print
available for the first time in hardcover, and featuring brand-new cover art by Richard Hescox and interior art by Douglas Klauba!

A Tarzan Tale Unlike Any Other
The year 1966 saw the release of one of the most unique Tarzan films ever made: Tarzan and the Valley of Gold. Starring former NFL linebacker Mike Henry in his debut as the cinematic ape-man, the film portrayed a cultured and refined Tarzan who seemed to be molded more after James Bond than the unsophisticated ape-man of past films. The depiction surprised and puzzled some moviegoers, but fans who had read the original Tarzan novels written by Edgar Rice Burroughs rejoiced at finally seeing their beloved character appear on the big screen bearing all the complexity and intelligence with which his creator had imbued him.

Enter critically acclaimed fantasy author Fritz Leiber, whose novelization of the film carried the honor of becoming the first authorized Tarzan novel to be written by an author other than Burroughs. Leiber’s tale was far from just a simple retelling of the movie; it was a faithful installment in the literary saga of the ape-man, with frequent callouts to Burroughs’ original Tarzan canon and myriad creative elements added to the storyline. Now readers can once again enjoy Fritz Leiber’s classic Tarzan and the Valley of Gold in this handsome, new illustrated edition, with an all-new foreward by Burroughs scholar Scott Tracy Griffin (author of Tarzan on Film).

The Valley of Gold...and Death
The burning wreck of a passenger jet with a missing cargo of gold and a desperate plea from a friend lead Tarzan of the Apes deep into intrigue in the jungles of Brazil. Soon the ape-man finds himself facing his most deadly nemesis yet: a criminal mastermind named Vinaro, whose enemies perish in mysterious explosions of gold and flame. But that may be only the beginning of Tarzan’s challenges. For if he is to defeat Vinaro, Tarzan must confront him in the legendary golden city of Tucumai, from where no outsider has ever returned. FRITZ LEIBER – Author

A renowned and award-winning author of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, Fritz Leiber (1910–1992) is best known for his Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser fantasy series. He is credited with coining the term sword and sorcery and is widely considered one of the genre’s founders. A SFWA Grand Master and winner of six Hugo Awards, three Nebula Awards, and two World Fantasy Awards, Leiber stands as a giant in the field of fantastic literature. RICHARD HESCOX – Cover Art

Richard Hescox is one of the founding lights of the Imaginative Realism movement. He has contributed artwork to such projects as the films E.T. and The Dark Crystal, to computer games, record albums, and magazine illustrations. He has also providing cover art and interior illustrations for hundreds of books, including the limited edition of A Clash of Kings from the George R. R. Martin’s bestselling Game of Thrones series. Richard previously painted the iconic cover art for all five books of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Carson of Venus series. DOUGLAS KLAUBA – Interior Art

An award-winning illustrator, Douglas Klauba was born and raised in Chicago, and is a graduate of the American Academy of Art. His paintings have been included in the art annuals of Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, the Society of Illustrators, and Imagine FX magazine. He was Artist Guest of Honor at the 2016 Burroughs Bibliophiles Dum-Dum convention, and he previously provided artwork for the books Tarzan Trilogy and Untamed Pellucidar published by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.

Don't miss out on this first, fully illustrated hardcover edition from the press founded in 1931 by Edgar Rice Burroughs himself!

New on Famous (and forgotten) Fiction!

August 2019
Baroness Orczy wrote many different types of stories during her career and "Young Muggins" shows yet another facet to her talents, as she weaves a tale of love, selfishness and self-sacrifice in rural England. 
Our reprinting appears just as it did in the May, 1906 issue of The Royal Magazine, including the illustrations by J. Barnard Davis.  Introduction to the story is by Dan Neyer.


June 2019
This month we feature Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's mummy tale, Lot No. 249, including the illustrations by William Thomas Smedley and an introduction by your humble scribes, Dan Neyer and Bob Gay.
We've also done some behind the scenes work to make the site work better...do stop by and check us out.


May 2019
Edmond Hamilton returns to our pages with "The Man Who Evolved," direct from the pages of the April, 1931 issue of Wonder Stories, including the Frank R. Paul illustration.  Intro by Bob Gay
Also, we found a 1953 comic book story where the plot was (*ahem*) "borrowed" from Hamilton's original and our unknown scribe managed to condense the story down to a mere 4 pages. 
Read the original first, then "Evolution" which appears as it originally appeared in Tomb of Terror #12, with the digital restoration included at no extra cost.


April 2019
We are very pleased to present The Neil R. Jones Collection, which starts with an 11,000+ word biography of Jones that incorporates his words, newspaper articles and our research to create a long overdue portrait of the creator of Professor Jameson.  We have also located a nearly all of Jones' non-fiction writings from various magazines and fanzines and have included them, along with 5, never before reprinted, stories that chart his early years as an author.  Copiously illustrated throughout, we hope you enjoy it.

March 2019
An early science fiction opus, A Corner in Lightning by George Griffith, for the March, 1898 issue of Pearson's Magazine including the illustrations by Paul Hardy.  Introduction by Bob Gay.


November 2018
Baroness Orczy has not made an appearance on our pages in some time, and this month we remedy that problem with an historical romance, “The Revenge of Ur-Tasen,” pretty close to how it appeared in the June, 1900 issue of Pearson's Magazine, including the illustrations by J. Ambrose Walton.  Introduction is by Dan Neyer.

October 2018
Edmond Hamilton returns to our pages this month with "The Comet Doom" from the pages of the January, 1928 issue of Amazing Stories. 
The Frank R. Paul illustration is included and hopefully readers will find fascination with the parallels between this story and the Zoromes of Neil R. Jones, something Bob Gay discusses in his introduction to the story.


September 2018
No fiction this month, but an extremely rare autobiographical sketch of Neil R. Jones called (surprise!),  "An Autobiographical Sketch of Neil R. Jones," reprinted from the January, 1937 issue of Fantasy Magazine. 
Bob Gay pens the introduction.


July 2018
Edmond Hamilton returns to our pages, with a tale of a deserted island and evolution gone amok...it all comes together in "Evolution Island," a story from the March, 1927 issue of Weird Tales with all the text, the title illustration and a newly written introduction by Bob Gay.

June 2018
It has been some time since Baroness Orczy has graced our site and this month you will find "Juliette A Tale of the Terror," the sixth published story by the Baroness that is set during the French Revolution. 
We have included all the original illustrations by the Baroness's husband, Montagu Barstow, translations for all archaic words and phrases and an informative introduction by Dan Neyer.

DESIGNS FOR DREAMING:
The Early Kuttner, Volume Three

Introduction by Dr. Garyn G. Roberts

Now available for pre-order!
Target Date: April 2020!

All preorders of DESIGNS FOR DREAMING will ship with an exclusive chapbook reprinting the long-lost 1938 terror-tale, MASTER OF THE DAMNED!

Before his marriage to (and subsequent collaborations with) Catherine L. Moore, Henry Kuttner was a frequent contributor to the pulp magazines that specialized in the weird, supernatural, horror, and science fiction genre. Beginning in 1936, Kuttner launched a steady stream of short stories aimed at Weird Tales, Strange Stories, Thrilling Mystery, and others.

Kuttner and Moore were married on June 7, 1940 in New York with artist Virgil Finlay as Best Man. With NYC as his base of operations, Kuttner interfaced on a frequent basis with the major local genre editors: Leo Margulies at Standard Magazines (Thrilling Mystery, Thrilling Wonder Stories, Strange Stories,), Alden H. Norton at Popular Publications (Astonishing Stories, Strange Detective Mysteries) and perhaps most importantly, John W. Campbell, Jr. at Street & Smith Publications (Unknown / Unknown Worlds). Campbell’s Astounding Science Fiction will loom large in Kuttner’s career for the next decade.

In DESIGNS FOR DREAMING (the third and final volume of “The Early Kuttner”) Kuttner sells the last of his stories to the weird-menace pulps, places some SF stories with lesser markets (Stirring Science Stories and Fantastic Adventures), and delivers some of his finest fantasy work in Unknown Worlds. By the summer of 1942, Kuttner’s Draft Status was reclassified as 1-A. By April 13, 1943, Pfc Henry Kuttner had orders to report to Fort Dix, New Jersey. The early phase of Kuttner’s career was over.

BLOOD SUGAR
Daniel Kraus
Cover art by Paul Mann


WHEN TRICK OR TREAT BECOMES LIFE OR DEATH

From the dark imagination of bestselling novelist Daniel Kraus—co-author with Guillermo del Toro of THE SHAPE OF WATER (which as a film won the Academy Award for Best Picture)—comes a Halloween crime story that’s like nothing you’ve ever read before.

At the end of Yellow Street, in a ruined junkyard of a house, an angry outcast hatches a scheme to take revenge for all the wrongs he has suffered. With the help of three alienated neighborhood kids, he plans to hide razor blades, poison, drugs, and broken glass in Halloween candy and use the deadly treats to maim or kill dozens of innocent children. But as the clock ticks closer to sundown, will one of his helpers—an innocent himself, in his own streetwise way—carry out or defeat the plan?

Told principally from the child’s point of view, in a voice as startling and unforgettable as A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, Kraus’ novel is at once frightening and emotional, thought-provoking and laugh-out-loud funny. It’ll make you rethink your concepts of family and loyalty and justice—and will leave you anxiously double-checking the wrappers on your Halloween candy for the rest of your days.

First publication anywhere!
Daniel Kraus is the New York Times-bestselling author of not only THE SHAPE OF WATER and TROLLHUNTERS (both co-authored with Guillermo del Toro) but also THE DEATH AND LIFE OF ZEBULON FINCH (named one of Entertainment Weekly’s Top 10 Books of the Year) and ROTTERS and SCOWLER (both winners of the Odyssey Award).
Kraus’ next project is THE LIVING DEAD, a posthumous collaboration with legendary filmmaker George A. Romero.





Harryhausen: The Lost Movies - Arriving in book stores September 10!
by John Walsh 


The official guide to the unrealised films of Ray Harryhausen.

Known for his iconic stop-motion creatures, Ray Harryhausen was at the forefront of Hollywood special effects for much of the 20th century. His films include One Million Years B.C., Clash of the Titans and Jason and the Argonauts, among others. But for every film that reaches the big screen, half a dozen projects are never realised.

Harryhausen: The Lost Movies explores Harryhausen's unrealised films, including unused ideas, projects he turned down and scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor. This book includes never-been-seen-before artwork, sketches, photos and test footage from the Harryhausen Foundation archives.

Hippocampus Press
Arthur Machen: Collected Fiction (3 Volume Set)
Now available!


This is the first complete edition of the fiction of Anglo-Welsh writer Arthur Machen (1863–1947) ever published. It includes the totality of his short fiction, novelettes, novels, and prose poems. While there is some debate as to what actually constitutes a short story in Machen’s work—especially given his bountiful array of journalism, some of which borders on fiction—the works in this volume are unquestionably narratives that feature one or more elements of fictional composition. A substantial majority of these works are tales of horror and the supernatural—a genre in which Machen has made a lasting and ever-expanding impression.

The edition has been prepared by S. T. Joshi, a leading authority on weird fiction and the author of The Weird Tale (1990) and Unutterable Horror: A History of Supernatural Fiction (2012).
Joshi has prepared textually corrected editions of the work of H. P. Lovecraft, Ambrose Bierce, and many other weird writers.


Volume 1: 1888–1895
This first volume contains his charming picaresque novel The Chronicle of Clemendy (1888), an exquisite imitation of the medieval narratives of Chaucer and Boccaccio. At this time Machen was a young journalist who had moved from his native Wales to London, and he wrote a number of humorous and slightly risqué sketches for fashionable London magazines. But then he published “The Great God Pan” (1894), one of the pioneering works in the entire range of weird fiction. It was condemned by contemporary reviewers as the work of a diseased mind. Machen followed it up with the episodic novel The Three Impostors (1895), containing the brilliant segments “The Novel of the Black Seal” (which features the Little People, a sub-human race lurking on the edges of civilization), “The Novel of the White Powder,” and other vivid narratives.

Volume 2: 1896–1910
This second volume of Machen’s collected fiction begins with Machen’s most accomplished novel, The Hill of Dreams (written in 1895–97 and published in 1907), which H. P. Lovecraft called a “memorable epic of the sensitive aesthetic mind.” It features Lucian Taylor, a young man from the country who struggles to become a writer in London. His ruminations on life, love, and authorship are extraordinarily poignant, and at one point he engages in a lengthy dream of being back in ancient Rome, in the town of Isca Silurum, near his birthplace in Wales. Later in 1897 Machen wrote a series of exquisite prose poems that were later published as Ornaments in Jade (1924). These ten vignettes display Machen’s luminous prose at its most evocative, and they touch upon the possibility of strange and wondrous phenomena concealed behind the outward façade of the mundane world. Machen’s most accomplished weird tale, “The White People,” is also found here. Its account of a young girl insidiously inculcated in the witch-cult, told entirely from her own perspective as she jots down her thoughts and impressions in a diary, achieves the pinnacle of clutching fear. A very different work is the short novel A Fragment of Life, telling of how a seemingly ordinary couple rediscover their sense of wonder in the world around them. The novel The Secret Glory (written around 1907) is a discursive novel that searingly condemns the British school system for destroying the imaginations of its pupils. The entire work—including the final two chapters, first published only in a limited edition in 1992—is included here.

Volume 3: 1911–1937
The third volume of Machen’s collected fiction begins with a tale, “The Thousand and One Nights,” that has never before been reprinted. It continues with a succession of tales that Machen wrote during and just after World War I, a cataclysm that shook Europe to its foundations. The most famous of these is “The Bowmen” (1914), a narrative of medieval soldiers coming to the rescue of besieged British infantrymen in France was widely believed to be a true account, in spite of Machen’s repeated protestations to the contrary. Machen’s final war tale, the short novel The Terror (1916), is an imperishable depiction of the revolt of animals against humanity’s rulership of the earth. In the 1920s Machen resorted to humor and satire to convey his dissatisfaction with the increasing secularization of his era, which he felt was robbing the imagination of wonder and mystery. He also began contributing to anthologies of original weird fiction edited by Cynthia Asquith and others, producing several memorable tales as a result, including “The Happy Children” and “The Islington Mystery.” Machen’s final novel, The Green Round (1933), is a subtle tale of supernatural menace, narrated in the blandly repertorial prose that Machen had developed in his later work. He then published two final volumes of weird tales, The Cosy Room and The Children of the Pool (both 1936), which contain many memorable tales, including “The Bright Boy” and “N.”

Three volumes, sold as a set.

Meteor House
Greatheart Silver and Other Pulp Heroes
Now available!

Philip José Farmer had a life-long love affair with the pulps he read in his youth. They influenced nearly everything he wrote, but in the 1970s he paid special tribute to them with several stories. Greatheart Silver and Other Pulp Heroes collects these stories for the first time in hardcover! This collection also features an introduction by college professor and pulp historian, Garyn G. Roberts, Ph.D., and artwork (coming soon) by Keith Howell!

Table of Contents:
Introduction
Greatheart Silver
The Return of Greatheart Silver
Greatheart Silver in the First Command
The Grant Robeson Papers
Savage Shadow
Skinburn

The first three stories: “Greatheart Silver,” “The Return of Greatheart Silver,” and “Greatheart Silver in the First Command,” originally appeared in Byron Priess’ Weird Heroes series and have been collected before in the paperback, Greatheart Silver. These stories are Philip José Farmer at his most irreverent.

The next two items, “The Grant Robeson Papers,” and “Savage Shadow” also appeared in Weird Heroes, and set up a fantastic premise that was never fulfilled and will leave you wanting more.

The final story, “Skinburn” appeared in the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction and is the most scifi of these stories, while still giving a nod to the pulps.

Here’s something new—based on your feedback and buying trends, we’re only releasing this book in hardcover.

Greatheart Silver and Other Pulp Heroes will debut at FarmerCon XIV this coming August, but if you preorder the book now, we’re offering an “Early Bird Special” discount of $5 off! So you only $27 + shipping for this fascinating collection of Farmer paying homage to many of his literary heroes!

Please choose the correcting shipping option when preordering your copy.

OLD BONES (Nora Kelly) - Now available!
by Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child


The first in the groundbreaking Nora Kelly series from #1 bestselling authors Preston & Child blends the legend of the Donner party with a riveting suspense tale, taking the dynamic duo's work to new heights.

Nora Kelly, a young but successful curator with a series of important excavations already under her belt, is approached by the handsome Historian, Guy Porter, to lead an expedition unlike any other. Guy tells his story--one involving the ill-fated Donner Party, who became permanently lodged in the American consciousness in the winter of 1847, when the first skeletonized survivors of the party stumbled out of the California mountains, replete with tales of courage, resourcefulness, bad luck, murder, barbarism--and, finally, starvation and cannibalism.

Captivated by the Donner Party, Nora agrees and they venture into the Sierra Nevada in search of the camp. Quickly, they learn that the discovery of the missing starvation camp is just the tip of the iceberg--and that the real truth behind those long-dead pioneers is not only far more complex and surprising than they could have imagined...but it is one that puts them both in mortal danger from a very real, present-day threat in which the search for the lost party, and its fabled fortune in gold, are merely means to a horrifying end.

George Vanderburgh has been named the winner of the 2019 Munsey Award. Nominated by the general pulp community, George was selected by previous winners of the Lamont, Munsey, and Rusty Awards. The award is a fine art print created by David Saunders and published by Dan Zimmer of The Illustrated Press. It is presented annually to an individual or institution that has bettered the pulp community. Bill Lampkin — winner of the 2018 Munsey Award — presented this year’s award.

Our 2019 Munsey Award winner, GEORGE VANDERBURGH has published over 600 books through his Battered Silicon Dispatch Box, many of them directly related to the pulps. He was largely responsible for finally getting all of Fred Davis’ classic Moon Man stories back into print. And what about his Peter the Brazen series, his five volumes featuring the work of Seabury Quinn, THE COMPLEAT ADVENTURES OF THE PARK AVENUE HUNT CLUB, his Green Ghost set, THE COMPLEAT SAGA OF JOHN SOLOMON, THE ADVENTURES OF THE GOLDEN AMAZON, THE COMPLEAT ADVENTURES OF THE SUICIDE SQUAD, and others? He has also given us numerous collections of detective fiction, including volumes featuring the Thinking Machine, Dr. Thorndyke, and Martin Hewitt. Looking at his website, his future plans include several books reprinting pulp authors who have been unjustly forgotten. Along with the late Robert Weinberg, George served as the co-editor of Arkham House Publishers until the death of April Derleth. A regular attendee of pulp conventions, George has helped both longtime and new fans to collect the tales of some of the most fantastic heroes from the pulps. At this year’s PulpFest, George was part of our presentation, “The Game’s Afoot: Sherlock Holmes and the Pulps.”

Congratulations to George for this most deserved award.

The Spider #108 Audiobook
Hell Rolls on the Highways!
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge

Read by Nick Santa Maria
  Now available!


 The very structure of our war effort was threatened. Great cargo laden trailer-trucks and mammoth, passenger-filled busses were crashing mysteriously to flaming destruction on our highways! . . . Read how Richard Wentworth, in the sinister robes of the Spider, challenges a mighty crime combine designed to wreck the nation’s overland transport! Read of the Evangelist, who swore to consign the Spider’s soul to hell! And of Kalimumtaz, Hindu tigress in whose pagan hand rested the fate of Wentworth’s every ally — while he himself plunged down a mountain in a fiery coffin!



The Spider stories are all about action, emotional intensity, and pacing. Wentworth himself is strongly emotional, plumbing the thrills of victory as readily, and as deeply, as the depths of despair during his escapades. His long-suffering fiancée, Nita van Sloan, is a worthy character in her own right, though frequently relegated to the traditional role of hostage-bait. As additional exotic spice, Wentworth maintains a Sikh manservant/warrior companion, Ram Singh, as well as chauffeur Ronald Jackson, the sergeant from his old army days. Rounding out the cast of characters is Commissioner of Police Stanley Kirkpatrick, Wentworth’s staunch friend and the Spider’s greatest adversary.
 
Once more,the incomparable Nick Santa Maria reads another thrilling Spider exploit. Hell Rolls on the Highways! originally published in The Spider magazine, September, 1942.

The Lone Ranger rides again! Return with us to the old west, where one masked man and his faithful companion fought for justice.

THE WAR CHIEF alternate is based on art by noted western artist Maynard Dixon and you can read more about it here.


Please take a moment to read the four-page article  about the publishing of THE WAR CHIEF and why it meant so much to Ed Burroughs. I think you’ll be interested to find out that the book was one of the most well-researched novels he ever wrote (besides I AM A BARBARIAN), and, considering its point of view and many of the statements about white settlers, the US Army and the reasons for the Apache’s explicit savagery, certainly his most controversial.
