Captain Philip Strange: Strange Squadrons (Volume 7)

A mental marvel from birth, who used his talents on stage as a boy, Philip Strange is now known as “The Phantom Ace of G-2″ by the Allies during WWI. From his very first adventure, Captain Philip Strange has rooted out only the most bizarre battalions commissioned by Germany in the Great War. When flying coffins circle the air, or severed hands drop from the sky, the call goes out for the Phantom Ace of G-2 Intelligence. For the Allies know that only the so-called “Brain-Devil” and his aides can out-fly the zombie traitors and human bombs, or out-spy fiends like The Mask and the Man with the Iron Claw! When World War I gets weird, only America’s own “Phantom Ace of G-2” has a ghost of a chance against the supernatural slaughter. Captain Philip Strange in his strangest cases yet from the pages of Flying Aces magazine!
 
Take another trip through the imaginings of Donald E. Keyhoe, where the WWI war skies are filled with giant bats, invisible fire, and beautiful spies. And where America turns to its own unnatural secret weapon: Captain Philip Strange. A mental marvel from birth, he was so terrifyingly effective as the Allies’ top agent that the Germans were offering a king’s ransom for his death. This fifth volume of weird WWI adventures collects six stories featuring Germany’s wildest attempts to win the war and Captain Philip Strange’s counter measures!

Stories include:
 ■“A Squadron Will Perish,” – Flying Aces, August 1931
 ■“Port of Missing Pilots,” – Flying Aces, March 1932
 ■“The Fokker Fiend,” – Flying Aces, May 1932

The Jailbird Flight: The Devil Flies High (Volume 2)

They had all been sentenced to a living death and all bore The Convict Brand! The Jailbirds were recruited from the military prisons of Britain, France, and America. Real men, molded in the harsh fires of life, dishonored perhaps in the eyes of the Army— but men with red blood and courage. Hard fighters, some of them hiding bitter memories, but all of them ready to follow their leader, “Killer” Kirby, down a flaming suicide trail on the most dangerous missions of the Great War! Rather than wither behind bars—they were given the chance to die fighting!
 
This is the second of two exciting volumes of the collected adventures Donald E. Keyhoe’s Jailbird Flight stories that ran through all three of Popular Publication’s air anthology titles. Starting in Battle Aces in September 1931 running through the end of it’s initial publication run when they switched to Battle Birds at the end of 1932 and into Dare-Devil Aces in 1934.
 
In August of 1931, Donald E. Keyhoe started three long-lived series in three different aviation magazines: Philip Strange in Flying Aces; The Devil Dog Squadron in Sky Birds; and The Jailbird Flight in Battle Aces. This volume features the first seven Jailbird adventures published by Popular Publications in 1931 and ‘32. A former U.S. Marine pilot, Keyhoe was a prolific contributor to the pulp magazines, but he is perhaps best remembered for his UFO research in the Fifties and Sixties.


Stories include:
 ■“The Jailbird Patrol” – Battle Birds, December 1932
 ■“The Cyclone Patrol” – Dare-Devil Aces, February 1933
 ■“The Red Lightning Ace” – Dare-Devil Aces, July 1933
 ■“The Hooded Ace” – Dare-Devil Aces, February 1934
 ■“The Skeleton Ace” – Dare-Devil Aces, November 1934

The Age of Dimes and Pulps
Now available!

From the dime novels of the Civil War era to the pulp magazines of the early 20th century to modern paperbacks, lurid fiction has provided thrilling escapism for the masses. Cranking out formulaic stories of melodrama, crime and mild erotica--often by uncredited authors focused more on volume than quality--publishers realized high profits playing to low tastes. Estimates put pulp magazine circulation in the 1930s at 30 million monthly.

This vast body of "disposable literature" has received little critical attention, in large part because much of it has been lost--the cheaply made books were either discarded after reading or soon disintegrated. Covering the history of pulp literature from 1850 through 1960, the author describes how sensational tales filled a public need and flowered during the evolving social conditions of the Industrial Revolution.

A millionaire playboy with a yen for excitement, young Ken McNally disguises himself as the gray-haired, gold-toothed, jaundiced-looking proprietor of a seedy tattoo parlor in the “tenderloin” district of St. Louis. His unusual occupation frequently brings him into contact with underworld denizens who, willingly or accidentally, embroil him in criminal activities.

Written by William E. Barrett, Needle Mike found himself embroiled in nearly 20 hard-boiled mysteries originally published between 1935 and 1938 in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Contains the following stories: “The Tattooed Corpse,” “The Tattooed Countess,” “The Tattooed Curse” and “The Tattooed Cobra.”

258 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover



Brilliant, decisive, and hard-charging, Deputy Inspector Allhoff was the NYPD’s ace detective until bullets from a mobster’s machine gun robbed him of his legs, his career, and—in the opinion of an associate—his sanity. Yet Allhoff was too good a man to be put out to pasture, so New York’s police commissioner found a way to keep him employed and refer to him such cases as the department couldn’t or wouldn’t handle. Confined to a wheelchair and operating from a seedy tenement flat, Allhoff is assisted by two cops: Battersly, the rookie patrolman whose brief moment of cowardice cost the inspector his legs, and Simmons, the bitter career cop who detests Allhoff but sticks with the embittered cripple to protect his own pension.

Contains the following stories: “The 10:30 to Sing Sing,” “Coffee for a Killer,” “The Corpse That Wasn’t There,” “A Bed for the Body,” “Tell It to Homicide,” “Murder in the Mirror,” “A Leg on Murder,” “You’re the Crime in My Coffee.”

328 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover


The Complete Cases of Peter Kane (The Dime Detective Library)
by Hugh B. Cave
introduction by Bob Byrne

No longer a Boston police officer, hard-boiled drunk Peter Kane made the easy transition to work as a P.I. Though now in private practice, Kane had a knack for cracking cases while constantly inebriated. Collecting the entire series, along with an all-new introduction by Bob Byrne.

Written by Hugh B. Cave, Kane stumbled through nine gin-soaked yarns published between 1934 and 1942 in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Contains the following stories: “The Late Mr. Smythe,” “Hell on Hume Street,” “Bottled in Blonde,” “The Man Who Looked Sick,” “The Screaming Phantom,” “The Brand of Kane,” “Ding Dong Belle,” “The Dead Don’t Swim” and “No Place to Hide.”


365 pages | $24.95 softcover | $34.95 hardcover



Immediately before picking up the reigns of writing the adventures of the Spider, pulp writer Norvell Page introduced the weird detective mysteries of another, similar adventure character, Ken Carter. Running in the hard-boiled pages of the 1930s detective pulps, Ken Carter battled a myriad of offbeat villains in a series which is clearly a prototype of Page’s style of novels he soon later wrote of the Spider. Collecting all seven stories, along with their original illustrations.

Contains the following stories: “Hell’s Music,” “City of Corpses,” “Statues of Horror,” “Gallows Ghost,” “Satan’s Hoof,” “The Sinister Embrace” and “Satan’s Sideshow.”


367 pages | $24.95 softcover | $34.95 hardcover


The Complete Cases of Seekay (The Dime Detective Library)
by Paul Ernst
introduction by Will Murray

The cases he takes up are often bizarre and grotesque, but no more so than this anonymous private investigator himself: Seekay’s entire face is covered by a mask of pink celluloid, with only his “burning black eyes” visible to those who come into contact with him—and who almost invariably are unnerved by the experience, whether friend or foe. Collecting the entire series, written by the writer of The Avenger, Paul Ernst.

Contains the following stories: “Madame Murder—and The Corpse Brigade,” “The Corpse With The Third Eye,” “Case Of The Smoking Skulls,” “Two Tickets To Hell” and “Widow Of The Talking Head.”


193 pages | $14.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover



From 1933 to 1935, Frederick C. Davis chronicled the cases of Hollywood P.I. firm Secrets, Inc. Led by Clay “Oke” Oakley and assisted by Cherry Morris and Archibald Brixey, Secrets, Inc., investigated some of the weirdest and most ingenious crimes in the long history of Dime Detective Magazine—all centering around the film industry. Volume 2 collects the final five mysteries.

Contains the following stories: “Death on Delivery,” “Tracks of the Turtle,” “Blood from the Parrot,” “The Green Ghoul” and “Doorway to Doom.”

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
Now available!

The latest release from Murania Press is a collection of informative, extensively researched essays on the Westerns of pulp fiction and Saturday-matinee motion pictures from the 20th century’s first half. Most of these pieces initially saw print in BLOOD 'N' THUNDER; a few were originally written for other publications; and one is new to this book. The reprinted essays all have been reedited and expanded, some considerably. Author Ed Hulse examines best-selling authors such as Zane Grey, Max Brand, Walt Coburn, and Clarence E. Mulford; memorable series characters such as Zorro, Hopalong Cassidy, The Lone Ranger, and Whistling Dan Barry; and popular cowboy stars such as Tom Mix, Roy Rogers, William Boyd, Randolph Scott, George O’Brien — to name just a few in each category.

While not a comprehensive narrative history, this book’s 17 essays in their totality cover a long span of time and a great deal of ground. The author has uncovered a wealth of heretofore unreported information on the making of classic Western movies, much of it gleaned from the actors, writers, and directors themselves.

As a bonus the book reprints Stewart Edward White’s outstanding 1919 novella, THE KILLER, twice adapted by Hollywood; the second and best version, a stylish 1932 exercise in “Western Gothic” titled MYSTERY RANCH, is covered by Hulse at length in the 5,100-word essay written specifically to accompany White’s story.

At 286 pages, its 146,000 words accompanied by dozens of seldom-seen cover reproductions and rare movie stills, THE WILD WEST OF FICTION AND FILM is an invaluable addition to the history of American pop culture. It's available at muraniapress.com for $25.00, which includes free shipping to domestic U.S. buyers.

CONAN COLLECTOR - Coming in December!

Know, O Prince, that between the time that saw the sinking of Atlantis and the glittering cities ... there was an unsuspected Age, during which resplendent realms spread across the globe. But the most illustrious of the kingdoms of this world was Aquilonia, whose supremacy was undisputed in the dreaming West. It was in this country that came Conan, the Cimmerian - black hair, dark eyes, sword in hand, a thief, a looter, a killer, with fits of melancholy just as disproportionate as his joys - to tread his sandals thrones constellated with jewels of the Earth.

Conan is one of the most famous fictional characters in the world. Robert E. Howard created it in 1932 and with him, heroic fantasy .
This hero, as well as the evocative power of his author's writing, has had and still has a major influence on the Western imagination.

For the first time, here is the complete Conan Adventures in one volume, an exceptional edition with limited edition and beautifully enriched with 251 illustrations including 21 full color pages by:

COWBOYS, CREATURES, AND CLASSICS STORY OF REPUBLIC PICTURES  - Now available!
(Writers) Chris Enss, Howard Kazanjian

Republic Pictures was the little studio in the San Fernando Valley where movies were made family style. A core of technicians, directors, and actors worked hard at their craft as Republic released a staggering total of more than a thousand films through the late 1950s. Republic brought action, adventure, and escape to neighborhood movies houses across America. And they brought it with style. Republic Pictures became a studio where major directors could bring their personal vision to the screen. Sometimes these were projects no other studio would touch such as The Quiet Man (which brought director John Ford an Oscar) and Macbeth. Cowboys, Creatures and Classics: The Story of Republic Pictures is the honest account of an extraordinary production house, one whose ability to turn out films quickly boded well for its transition into television production.

TARZAN AND THE REVOLUTION
 
By Thomas Zachek
Illustrated by Mike Grell
Now available!

Eric Benton, an idealistic young Midwestern Peace Corps volunteer, could hardly have known that his mission to help an African village would embroil him and his colleagues in the political struggles of an emerging African nation. The people of central Africa likewise had no idea how quickly their expectations for freedom could be taken away when a ruthless dictator seizes power. And Tarzan of the Apes had no idea that before long, he would be compelled, once again, to undertake a long and perilous journey with the Waziri to save their families.

Set against a backdrop of political unrest in modern Africa, Thomas Zachek's latest page-turner takes the reader from the dank treasure troves of the lost city of Opar to turmoil in the city streets as Tarzan battles one of his most ruthless foes!

JULES DE GRANDIN
A RIVAL FROM THE GRAVE: THE COMPLETE TALES OF JULES DE GRANDIN, VOLUME FOUR

by Seabury Quinn
Coming September 4!

The fourth of five volumes collecting the stories of Jules de Grandin, the supernatural detective made famous in the classic pulp magazine Weird Tales.

Today the names of H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, August Derleth, and Clark Ashton Smith, all regular contributors to the pulp magazine Weird Tales during the first half of the twentieth century, are recognizable even to casual readers of the bizarre and fantastic. And yet despite being more popular than them all during the golden era of genre pulp fiction, there is another author whose name and work have fallen into obscurity: Seabury Quinn.

Quinn’s short stories were featured in well more than half of Weird Tales’s original publication run. His most famous character, the supernatural French detective Dr. Jules de Grandin, investigated cases involving monsters, devil worshippers, serial killers, and spirits from beyond the grave, often set in the small town of Harrisonville, New Jersey. In de Grandin there are familiar shades of both Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot, and alongside his assistant, Dr. Samuel Trowbridge, de Grandin’s knack for solving mysteries—and his outbursts of peculiar French-isms (grand Dieu!)—captivated readers for nearly three decades.

Collected for the first time in trade editions, The Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin, edited by George Vanderburgh, presents all ninety-three published works featuring the supernatural detective.
Presented in chronological order over five volumes, this is the definitive collection of an iconic pulp hero.

The fourth volume, A Rival from the Grave, will include all the stories from “The Chosen of Vishnu” (1933) to “Incense of Abomination” (1938), as well as an introduction by George Vanderburgh and Robert Weinberg and a foreword by Mike Ashley.

TARZAN AND THE DARK HEART OF CRIME
By Philip Jose Farmer
Now available!

One of the most famous heroes in literature is back!
Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, returns with a vengeance in this action-packed adventure by Philip José Farmer, Hugo Award winner, Nebula Grand Master, and author of the incredible Riverworld saga.

Tarzan’s beloved mate, Jane, has been kidnapped, and the furious ape-man will let nothing stand in the way of rescuing her—not even a sinister safari whose target is Tarzan himself. With fierce Masai trackers leading the chase, a trio of white hunters are hellbent on capturing the Jungle Lord. But as the pursuers, and their uncanny half-human tracker, close in from behind, Tarzan races toward even greater danger ahead.

For the trail leads to a bizarre, long-forgotten land boasting a multitude of strange and terrifying mysteries: the City Built by God, the Hideous Hunter, the One to Avoid, and most shocking of all, the Crystal Tree of Time—whose seductive powers could ultimately spell Tarzan’s doom . . .

Philip José Farmer, a descendant of the actual Greystoke family, and a recipient of the prestigious Golden Lion Award, bestowed by the Burroughs Bibliophiles at the 1970 Dum-Dum, is famous for his adventure novels starring Tarzanic characters. Now, in Tarzan and the Dark Heart of Time, authorized by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., Farmer lends his vast imagination to the legend of the Lord of the Apes himself!

In addition, this handsome new edition, which sports a gorgeous painted cover by well known Burroughs artist Mark Wheatley, a new Foreword by longtime Burroughs scholar Robert R. Barrett, and a new Introduction by Farmer expert Win Scott Eckert, will also be released in a trade paperback edition.

Now accepting preorders, the book will be released at FarmerCon 100, held in conjunction with PulpFest 2018 in Pittsburgh, PA, July 26-29. As always, readers who preorder and attend FarmerCon/PulpFest can pick up their copies there—and as an added bonus, get them signed by Wheatley and Eckert! All other copies will ship immediately after FarmerCon 100.

ORDERING:
The trade paperback edition is $20 (plus shipping).
The hardcover edition is $35 (plus shipping).
Or you can preorder them together for only $50—that’s $5 off (plus you’ll save even more with combined shipping)!

Hardcover: $35

The 2018 Munsey Award
William Lampkin

William Lampkin has been named the winner of the 2018 Munsey Award. Nominated by the general pulp community, Bill was selected through a vote cast by all the living Lamont, Munsey, and Rusty Award winners. 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. David Saunders — winner of a special “retro” Lamont Award in 2016 — presented this year’s award. As Bill was unable to attend PulpFest 2018 due to family obligations, the award was accepted by Mike Chomko.

Our 2018 Munsey Award winner, William Lampkin, is a freelance writer/editor and publication designer who has spent much of his work life in the newspaper field, much like Rambler Murphy (but without the cool nickname and crime-solving). After freelancing for a number of years, he’s now the public information officer for a professional licensing board. Like many from his generation, Bill discovered the pulps through paperback reprints of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert E. Howard, The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Spider. He bought his first actual pulp in the seventies. Bill runs ThePulp.Net, which he created in 1996, and also writes the Yellowed Perils blog. He founded the Facebook group Southern Pulpsters in 2015. A resident of Florida, he has designed THE PULPSTER since 2008, and beginning with its 22nd issue, became editor of the award-winning program book. The first twenty-one issues of the magazine were edited by Tony Davis, winner of the 1999 Lamont Award. Tony calls Bill: “One of the unsung heroes of contemporary pulp fandom.” In late 2013, Bill also began to design PulpFest‘s print advertisements, badges, and other materials. He is a member of the PulpFest organizing committee, serving as the convention’s advertising director and webmaster.

Congratulations to Bill for this most deserved award.

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2019 Munsey Awards.
If you’d like to make a nomination for this prestigious award, please send a short explanation concerning your reasons for the nomination to PulpFest marketing and programming director Mike Chomko at mike@pulpfest.com.
You can also reach Mike at 2217 W. Fairview Street, Allentown, PA 18104-6542. Previous winners of the Lamont, Munsey, or Rusty Award are not eligible for the award. Click here for a list of our previous winners.


The deadline for nominations is April 30, 2019. Please click here for additional details. Thanks for your help.

PulpFest 2019

PulpFest has received an offer to merge with a larger comic convention back in Columbus, our original home. Nothing has been decided but the committee is carefully weighing all options. This would return Pulpfest to Columbus and possibly increase attendance, which has been down since the move to Pittsburgh.The response was that fans of original pulps voiced opposition and "New Pulp" movement members supported it. That's an oversimplification, based on who stood to speak about the idea.  A move to Labor Day weekend would also be considered, since that might also increase attendance.  None of this is locked in, but the committee said it has not committed to the Pittsburgh DoubleTree at Cranberry yet for 2019.

The Spider and the Fire God
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge

Read by Nick Santa Maria

Now available!

The Master of Flame and Burning Death held New York fast in unholy worship of his strange god. For thousands had fled their doomed churches, lest they perish by fire — and the Spider alone remained to face this monstrous cult-leader from hell!
 
Driven, deadly, the Spider was a daredevil caught between the law that branded him as a criminal and the underworld he terrorized with his metallic laugh and searing lead. A self-appointed savior of humanity, driven manic-depressive, and possibly undiagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, the Spider was known and feared as the Master of Men.


 
While the Spider borrowed his black slouch hat and cloak from the already thriving Shadow, the rest of the character was significantly different. Richard 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; Kirkpatrick himself lives in a state of constant angst for fear that duty will one day force him to send his friend to the electric chair as punishment for the Spider’s crimes. And indeed, that fear nearly becomes fact on several occasions.
 
Nick Santa Maria breathes life into the Spider in The Spider and the Fire God. Originally published in The Spider magazine, August, 1939.

The Purple Invasion story #4 of 13
 
The United States forces have been driven to their last, desperate stronghold before the blood-maddened ruthless hordes of the self-styled emperor, Rudolph I, even as a courageous but blind nation, wrapped in the dreams of false security, had practiced the foolish doctrine of “It can’t happen here!” America’s patriotic Death Battalion was the last ragged hope of embattled patriots — the women of the nation who hurled themselves bravely and futilely against the war-mad forces of the Purple Invaders. When they fell before the terror-inspiring and deadly barrage of cholera bombs, a few stricken survivors turned for their hope of averting ultimate disaster to one man — Jimmy Christopher — who, as Operator #5, was to face the most overpowering and deadly odds in all his embattled career!


The saga of Jimmy Christopher, otherwise known as Operator #5 of the United States Intelligence Service, had been a busy routine of defeating enemies, both foreign and domestic, each and every month. It wasn’t easy, but the Intelligence ace made it look like it was all in a month’s work.
 
When Frederick C. Davis left Operator #5, Popular Publications immediately replaced him with Emile C. Tepperman, who picked up where Davis left off, spinning slightly more hard-boiled exploits of Jimmy Christopher than had appeared before. And then, Tepperman threw Christopher and the world into the Purple Invasion.
 
It was inconceivable that America should ever bow beneath the heel of an invading tyrant. When even the women of the nation had hurled themselves against the enemy in a last desperate effort to stay his irresistible progress, America staggered under the most paralyzing blow of all — the devastating barrage of the cholera bombs... What could one man — even though he be the veteran Jimmy Christopher, Operator #5 — do against such odds?
 
America's Plague Battalions is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the December 1936 issue of Operator #5 magazine.

Performed by 2017 Audie Awards winner, voice actor Milton Bagby.

THE DOOM LEGION
Written by Will Murray,
Cover by Joe DeVito.
Now available in softcover!
Coming soon in hardcover!

When a weird meteor crashes in the middle of Central Park on Halloween night, its eerie unholy light attracts the attention of Richard Wentworth––alias The Spider!

Captain Philip Strange: Strange Squadrons (Volume 7)

A mental marvel from birth, who used his talents on stage as a boy, Philip Strange is now known as “The Phantom Ace of G-2″ by the Allies during WWI. From his very first adventure, Captain Philip Strange has rooted out only the most bizarre battalions commissioned by Germany in the Great War. When flying coffins circle the air, or severed hands drop from the sky, the call goes out for the Phantom Ace of G-2 Intelligence. For the Allies know that only the so-called “Brain-Devil” and his aides can out-fly the zombie traitors and human bombs, or out-spy fiends like The Mask and the Man with the Iron Claw! When World War I gets weird, only America’s own “Phantom Ace of G-2” has a ghost of a chance against the supernatural slaughter. Captain Philip Strange in his strangest cases yet from the pages of Flying Aces magazine!
 
Take another trip through the imaginings of Donald E. Keyhoe, where the WWI war skies are filled with giant bats, invisible fire, and beautiful spies. And where America turns to its own unnatural secret weapon: Captain Philip Strange. A mental marvel from birth, he was so terrifyingly effective as the Allies’ top agent that the Germans were offering a king’s ransom for his death. This fifth volume of weird WWI adventures collects six stories featuring Germany’s wildest attempts to win the war and Captain Philip Strange’s counter measures!

The Jailbird Flight: The Devil Flies High (Volume 2)

They had all been sentenced to a living death and all bore The Convict Brand! The Jailbirds were recruited from the military prisons of Britain, France, and America. Real men, molded in the harsh fires of life, dishonored perhaps in the eyes of the Army— but men with red blood and courage. Hard fighters, some of them hiding bitter memories, but all of them ready to follow their leader, “Killer” Kirby, down a flaming suicide trail on the most dangerous missions of the Great War! Rather than wither behind bars—they were given the chance to die fighting!
 
This is the second of two exciting volumes of the collected adventures Donald E. Keyhoe’s Jailbird Flight stories that ran through all three of Popular Publication’s air anthology titles. Starting in Battle Aces in September 1931 running through the end of it’s initial publication run when they switched to Battle Birds at the end of 1932 and into Dare-Devil Aces in 1934.
 
In August of 1931, Donald E. Keyhoe started three long-lived series in three different aviation magazines: Philip Strange in Flying Aces; The Devil Dog Squadron in Sky Birds; and The Jailbird Flight in Battle Aces. This volume features the first seven Jailbird adventures published by Popular Publications in 1931 and ‘32. A former U.S. Marine pilot, Keyhoe was a prolific contributor to the pulp magazines, but he is perhaps best remembered for his UFO research in the Fifties and Sixties.


Stories include:
 ■“The Jailbird Patrol” – Battle Birds, December 1932
 ■“The Cyclone Patrol” – Dare-Devil Aces, February 1933
 ■“The Red Lightning Ace” – Dare-Devil Aces, July 1933
 ■“The Hooded Ace” – Dare-Devil Aces, February 1934
 ■“The Skeleton Ace” – Dare-Devil Aces, November 1934

A millionaire playboy with a yen for excitement, young Ken McNally disguises himself as the gray-haired, gold-toothed, jaundiced-looking proprietor of a seedy tattoo parlor in the “tenderloin” district of St. Louis. His unusual occupation frequently brings him into contact with underworld denizens who, willingly or accidentally, embroil him in criminal activities.

Written by William E. Barrett, Needle Mike found himself embroiled in nearly 20 hard-boiled mysteries originally published between 1935 and 1938 in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Contains the following stories: “The Tattooed Corpse,” “The Tattooed Countess,” “The Tattooed Curse” and “The Tattooed Cobra.”

258 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover



Brilliant, decisive, and hard-charging, Deputy Inspector Allhoff was the NYPD’s ace detective until bullets from a mobster’s machine gun robbed him of his legs, his career, and—in the opinion of an associate—his sanity. Yet Allhoff was too good a man to be put out to pasture, so New York’s police commissioner found a way to keep him employed and refer to him such cases as the department couldn’t or wouldn’t handle. Confined to a wheelchair and operating from a seedy tenement flat, Allhoff is assisted by two cops: Battersly, the rookie patrolman whose brief moment of cowardice cost the inspector his legs, and Simmons, the bitter career cop who detests Allhoff but sticks with the embittered cripple to protect his own pension.

Contains the following stories: “The 10:30 to Sing Sing,” “Coffee for a Killer,” “The Corpse That Wasn’t There,” “A Bed for the Body,” “Tell It to Homicide,” “Murder in the Mirror,” “A Leg on Murder,” “You’re the Crime in My Coffee.”

The Complete Cases of Peter Kane (The Dime Detective Library)
by Hugh B. Cave
introduction by Bob Byrne

No longer a Boston police officer, hard-boiled drunk Peter Kane made the easy transition to work as a P.I. Though now in private practice, Kane had a knack for cracking cases while constantly inebriated. Collecting the entire series, along with an all-new introduction by Bob Byrne.

Written by Hugh B. Cave, Kane stumbled through nine gin-soaked yarns published between 1934 and 1942 in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Contains the following stories: “The Late Mr. Smythe,” “Hell on Hume Street,” “Bottled in Blonde,” “The Man Who Looked Sick,” “The Screaming Phantom,” “The Brand of Kane,” “Ding Dong Belle,” “The Dead Don’t Swim” and “No Place to Hide.”


365 pages | $24.95 softcover | $34.95 hardcover



Immediately before picking up the reigns of writing the adventures of the Spider, pulp writer Norvell Page introduced the weird detective mysteries of another, similar adventure character, Ken Carter. Running in the hard-boiled pages of the 1930s detective pulps, Ken Carter battled a myriad of offbeat villains in a series which is clearly a prototype of Page’s style of novels he soon later wrote of the Spider. Collecting all seven stories, along with their original illustrations.

Contains the following stories: “Hell’s Music,” “City of Corpses,” “Statues of Horror,” “Gallows Ghost,” “Satan’s Hoof,” “The Sinister Embrace” and “Satan’s Sideshow.”

The Complete Cases of Seekay (The Dime Detective Library)
by Paul Ernst
introduction by Will Murray

The cases he takes up are often bizarre and grotesque, but no more so than this anonymous private investigator himself: Seekay’s entire face is covered by a mask of pink celluloid, with only his “burning black eyes” visible to those who come into contact with him—and who almost invariably are unnerved by the experience, whether friend or foe. Collecting the entire series, written by the writer of The Avenger, Paul Ernst.

Contains the following stories: “Madame Murder—and The Corpse Brigade,” “The Corpse With The Third Eye,” “Case Of The Smoking Skulls,” “Two Tickets To Hell” and “Widow Of The Talking Head.”


193 pages | $14.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover
