|The Astounding Illustrated History of Science
Fiction (Inspirations & Techniques) - Now available!
by Dave Golder (Author), Jess Nevins (Author), Pat Mills
(Foreword), David Langford (Consultant Editor)
A truly astonishing, illustrated history of Science fiction,
covering fantasy, and horror, with forays into crime, mystery and the gothic.
Using timelines, online links, illustrations, posters, movie stills, book
covers, and more, this amazing new book propels us into the well of modern
imagination, from its roots in Frankenstein, through Verne, H.G. Wells, the
late gothic and weird horror of Lovecraft to the mass market sensationalism
of the Pulp magazines. The Pulps then invoked a new generation of writers
(such as Ray Bradbury and Robert Bloch) of the Golden Age before many transitioned
to screenwriting for the movies and early TV (Psycho, Star Trek, Twilight
Zone), inspiring, in turn, the invasion of superheroes, gigantic spaceships,
and dystopian landscapes onto our data-streaming tablets and computers. The
book explores the interplay between great writers, (Asimov and Arthur C.
Clarke) and story-telling directors (Kubrick, James Cameron, Ridley Scott,
Christopher Nolan, George Lucas) who create powerful Sci-Fi, reflecting and
challenging the developments of technology, science and society. Each have
played a major role in this all-consuming, speculative form of world-building,
from its early manifestation as a shocking literary event, to the mass market
sensation is today.

Webster's Dictionary describes Potpourri
as "a miscellaneous collection."
Murania Press describes Pulpourri as "a miscellaneous collection
of well-written, impeccably researched essays on pulp fiction and how
it influenced American popular culture of the late 19th and early 20th
This latest volume in the BLOOD 'N' THUNDER PRESENTS series
has been assembled by Ed Hulse, co-editor of Amazon's best-selling THE
ART OF THE PULPS, from contributions by some of today's most distinguished
pop-culture scholars and archeologists. Their lengthy, informative essays
are profusely illustrated with pulp and book covers, interior artwork,
rare photographs, and movie posters. And the works herein are new to
this volume, not culled from back issues of BLOOD 'N' THUNDER.
Hulse leads off the book with a 15,000-word piece on the masterwork
of celebrated mystery writer Mary Roberts Rinehart: THE BAT, which began
life as a 1907 pulp yarn and over the next several decades was revived
in books, movies, and even a hit Broadway play. More importantly, it
influenced the creation of Batman by Bob Kane and Bill Finger.
In other essays: Jeffrey Shanks looks at colonialism in the
pulps. Dave Smith chronicles the exploits of the original Suicide Squad,
a trio of hard-charging FBI agents from the pulp ACE G-MAN STORIES. Laurie
Powers profiles Street & Smith's top female editor, Daisy Bacon,
who made LOVE STORY MAGAZINE the top-selling pulp and ended her career
trying to revive the flagging SHADOW and DOC SAVAGE pulps. Will Murray
reveals the early literary efforts of Robert Maxwell, best known for producing
the ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN radio and TV shows but also a prolific contributor
to the notorious girlie pulps published by DC Comics head honcho Harry
Donenfeld. And in a massive (18,000 words), exhaustively researched piece,
Rick Lai discusses the use of ancient religion and mythology in the works
of Conan creator Robert E. Howard. This essay is accompanied by a reprint
of Howard's "Black Talons," a weird mystery from 1933 and one of his
most obscure stories.
In the realm of motion pictures adapted from pulp yarns, Ed
Hulse documents the making of HAWK OF THE WILDERNESS, the 1938 Republic
serial version of William L. Chester's classic adventure yarn from BLUE
BOOK magazine. And we present what may be the only surviving photos taken
on location during production of the aborted 1935 film featuring Street
& Smith's Western-pulp hero Pete Rice.

Ghost (A Sam and Remi Fargo Adventure) - Coming May 29!
With Robin Burcell
In 1906, a groundbreaking Rolls-Royce
prototype known as the Gray Ghost vanishes from the streets of
Manchester, England, and it is only the lucky intervention of an
American detective named Isaac Bell that prevents it from being lost
forever. Not even he can save the good name of Jonathan Payton, however,
the man wrongly blamed for the theft, and more than a hundred years
later, it is his grandson who turns to Sam and Remi Fargo to help prove
his grandfather's innocence.
But there is even more at stake than any of them know.
For the car has vanished again, and in it is an object so rare
that it has the capacity to change lives. Men with everything to gain
and a great deal to lose have a desperate plan to find it--and if anybody
gets in their way? They have a plan for that, too.

Screenwriter Vincent Brugeas
Draftsman and Colorist Ronan Toulhoat
Based in the city of Khoraja,
Conan tries his luck serving Amalric's mercenaries. While waiting
for the fight, he leads a life of ordinary troop, drinking and frolicking
in the taverns. Fate catches up with him one night as he accidentally
meets Yesmala, princess and regent of the kingdom in person. She would
have seen Conan in a dream: the gods have designated him as the general
who must lead his armies against the demonic hordes of the wizard
Nathok. As a private soldier, Conan the barbarian becomes the only
hope of an entire kingdom.
The authors of the remark Roy des Ribauds plunge us
into a black and warlike adventure imbued with witchcraft.
The trait of Ronan Toulhoat unfolds all its excess
in the gigantism of architectures and epic battles.

Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.
Northern Russia, 1924: The Red Army
is eliminating those who resist the fledgling Soviet government.
At The Battle of the Plutonian Plain, the White Russian forces, aided
by wily American Edgar Rice Burroughs, do not fall, instead retreating
into the dangers of Pellucidar. Comrade Trotsky, the Soviet leader,
sends his troops to hunt them down—and destroy them.
Illustrated by Douglas Klauba
Mikhail Kirillivitch Kirov, a young conscript caught
up in this mad scheme, is fascinated by this new world. Formerly
a student anthropologist, he finds Pellucidar’s Stone Age landscape
and inhabitants a revelation—until he’s grabbed by a mammoth Skal
and flown back to its aerie to feed its giant offspring.
Thus begins Kirov’s astounding adventure in the Northern
environs of Pellucidar, rife with its incredible Paleolithic animal
life, including Skals, Trals and Dyals, tremendous birds with sharp
talons and fierce beaks; Ryths, the huge Stone Age cave bears whose
claws can tear a man apart; and the vicious Jaloks, hyaenodons whose
wild packs slaughter their prey mercilessly. These and other fantastic
beasts stalk Kirov as he navigates the complex world of Pellucidar’s
most dangerous predator: Man.
To survive, Kirov must escape slavery from the Beautiful
Ala and her mighty Black Birdriders, foster a civil war, impress
the natives with his “inventions,” conquer the terrifying Pulka Horde,
and become a warlord of several tribes as they flee the Soviet invaders.
It’s a tale in the grand tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ epic adventures
at The Earth’s Core.
Lee Strong’s heart was captured by the dinosaurs found
At the Earth’s Core in 1962—he has been a Burroughs reader ever
since. Lee also worked for the US Department of Defense (DOD); changed
international policy with a single report; deployed to Kuwait; saved
taxpayers $5 million; and reformed the $2 billion DOD Personal Property
Program. A Soldier of Poloda is Lee’s first novel. He is currently
working on two Pellucidar novels with more to come. Lee’s motto: More
Adventure ! More Excitement !! More Burroughs !!!

Written in 1928, H.P. Lovecraft's
Call of Cthulhu defined the ancient gods as dark creatures
who came from the stars and ruled the world before mankind.
When these ancient ones awaken, humanity is plagued by a nightmare
of terrors etched upon an epic backdrop. Artist Gary Gianni and
designer Marcelo Anciano both felt that Lovecraft's short story presented
an opportunity to visually expand the Cthulhu mythos and push
the boundaries of illustrated books. This book is a fusion of the
graphic novel, the illustrated book and cinematic design. Over a

THE SECRET ORIGINS OF WEIRD TALES
by John Locke
The Thing’s Incredible! is a sweeping
revisionist history of the founding of Weird Tales, one of the most
influential and entertaining pulp magazines of them all.
Its first two years (1923-24) was a period of tumult and controversy
unequalled in the pulps, before or since, an experience so painful
to its creators that they immediately banished their memories to secrecy,
their code of silence suppressing the story for almost a century. Here
at last is the true saga, the unraveling of the many twisted threads which
have bound the creation of Weird Tales in mystery.
Who were Henneberger and Lansinger, the co-founders, and what
circuitous chain of events brought about their doomed destiny?
How did the first editor, the outspoken and uncontrollable
Edwin Baird, become the wild man of the pulps?
What dark secrets lay buried in second editor Farnsworth Wright’s
haunted past that he never dared speak of?
What was the significance of the constantly mutating “reorganization”
that united two legends, world-famous magician Houdini and horror author
H.P. Lovecraft, into a grand nexus of weird?
How did Henneberger lose control of his slow-motion disaster
of a magazine?
And how did an all-out war behind the scenes lead to the long
peace of the Wright years?
This is the grand story of the challenges in establishing a
radical, new magazine in the early 1920s—and not just any magazine,
but the immortal Weird Tales.
John Locke is a leading historian of the pulps who has written
on magazines famous and obscure. He is co-author (with Doug Ellis and
John Gunnison) of the pioneering Adventure House Guide to the Pulps.
His writers’ mag series (Pulp Fictioneers, Pulpwood Days) explores the
history of the pulps through the experiences of the participants in
the industry. He applied the same approach to Weird Tales and discovered
a story stranger—and thornier—than he ever imagined.

Guest of Honor — Joe Lansdale
July 26 through
Sunday, July 29, 2018
Are you thinking
attending PulpFest 2018?
You’re probably wondering what to expect
from this year’s convention.
PulpFest is known for its great programming
and the line-up that we’re planning
for next year’s convention is shaping
up to be one of our best.
2018 marks the centennial of the armistice
that ended the First World War.
Also called “The War to End All Wars” and
“The Great War,” PulpFest — The Great
Convention — will be honoring the 100th anniversary
of the war’s end by focusing on the
so-called “war pulps” of the early
twentieth century and the depiction of war
in popular culture.
We’ll explore the work of Leonard H. Nason
— who wrote about soldiers and
war for ADVENTURE and other magazines —
and have presentations on artistic interpretations
of war in comic books, pulps, and
men’s adventure magazines.
Author and anthologist Don Hutchison
will moderate a panel on “Fighting Aces
of War Skies: The Pulps Take Flight” and
Henry G. Franke, III — the editor
of THE BURROUGHS BULLETIN — will
discuss “Edgar Rice Burroughs and The Great War.”
Also, Robert Gould will talk about his
father — John Fleming Gould — the
interior artist who illustrated every issue
of G-8 AND HIS BATTLE ACES.
We’ll also be celebrating the century
mark of Grand Master of Science Fiction
Philip José Farmer.
PulpFest and its associated convention
— FarmerCon — will be saluting the
acclaimed author of such works as ESCAPE
FROM LOKI, THE DARK HEART OF TIME, the classic
Riverworld series, and more.
Join us for panels and presentations on
“World Building and Writing in the
Nine Continuity,” “The Dark Heart of Loki: Philip
José Farmer Revisits 1918,” and
the life and legacy of Philip José Farmer.
We’ll also be showing the French documentary
MOI, TARZAN, featuring Farmer,
George McWhorter, and Francis Lacassin.
And don’t forget about our Guest of Honor
— Joe Lansdale — the author of
over forty novels and numerous short stories.
Winner of the Edgar Award, ten Bram Stoker
Awards, the Horror Writers Association
Lifetime Achievement Award,
the British Fantasy Award, the Inkpot
Award for Contributions to Science Fiction
and Fantasy, and many other awards,
Joe will be talking with Tony Davis — editor
emeritus of THE PULPSTER and winner
of the 1999 Lamont Award — on Saturday
evening, July 28, in the PulpFest programming
Mr. Lansdale will also be available at
other times during the convention.

G-8 and His Battle Aces #9 Audiobook
The Dynamite Squadron
by Robert J. Hogan
Read by Nick Santa Maria
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!
Officers at G.H.Q. stared at that map in horror. Too late they realized
the 39th division had walked into a Boche trap — a trap that might snap shut
any minute, hurl thousands of Yanks to hell! And only one man could defy this
devil snare — alone G-8 hurls battle wings straight into the worst terror
scheme ever laid for man by man!
|G-8 and His Battle Aces proved
popular almost immediately upon its debut in October 1933. The magazine hit
the stands at the height of the Aviation Pulp craze. Millions of readers,
especially young fans, dreamed of donning pilot goggles and climbing into
flying machines. And Author Robert J. Hogan made sure his readers had plenty
to enjoy. For a period during the 110 issue run of the magazine, it was believed
Hogan was writing more than two million words a year for Pulp magazines,
more than any other Pulp writer ever.
Another reason for G-8’s success had to do with the setting of the tales.
Readers just didn’t want flying stories, but they were particularly interested
in tales from the last Great War. There was something that, for a brief time,
captured the imagination of readers about pilots during World War One. But,
with this obviously being something that would end as quickly as it started,
Popular Publications allowed Hogan to up the ante even more.
Instead of just taking on other pilots, G-8 and His Battle Aces flew into
battle against the things of nightmares. From mad scientists to monsters,
the skies of World War One were filled with horrors that only America’s Master
Spy could handle.
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate
struggle to defeat a strange nemesis unlike anything they have ever before
encountered in The Dynamite Squadron. Originally published in the June, 1934
issue of G-8 and His Battle Aces magazine.
Nick DeGregorio composed the music for the G-8 and His Battle Aces series

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.
Aces was another of the many pulps that rode the wave of popularity of World
War I aviation tales in the decade after the conflict. It made its debut
in February 1932 and lasted for an astounding 135 issues. It finally closed
after World War II ended, with the November 1946 issue. During its run, it
presented a wide assortment of high-flying aerial series, including The Red
Falcon, The Vanished Legion, The Three Mosquitoes, Molloy and McNamara, The
Black Sheep of Belogue, The Mongol Ace, Chinese Brady, Captain Babyface,
Smoke Wade and others. Strap on your flying helmet, toss that scarf about
your neck and get ready for some soaring action in the skies over France
and Germany during the Great War. Dare-Devil Aces return in vintage pulp
tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
