The Doom Legion by Will Murray

Pulp legend Will Murray has written a new novel that crosses over 3 of the most popular Pulp Heroes of the 1930s:  The Spider, Jimmy Christopher (Operator 5), and G-8.  Will has taken these characters and fleshed them out into more realistic and complex protagonists.  Meanwhile, the prose is smooth and action is non-stop.  This is a real "Wild Adventure" story when a mysterious meteorite lands on Central Park and starts changing people into cosmic zombies.  To complicate matters, 2 supervillains from The Spider and G-8 show up to exploit the new threat.
 
It is a fun story from start to finish.  In the hard cover version there is a Secret Six story that parallels what is happening in the main novel and helps to fill out the back story on the meteor menace.
 
No self respecting Pulp fan will want to miss it!
Will also has sequels in mind which e discusses with me, along with his planned next major novel "Tarzan Conquerors Mars".
We cover lots of other things including new Sherlock Holmes and Cthulhu Mythos stories that Will has coming out.
Don't miss this one!

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
Now shipping!

Long the best-selling title in Murania Press history — nearly 2000 copies in print, with copies sold in 23 countries — THE BLOOD 'N' THUNDER GUIDE TO PULP FICTION is now available in a new revised and expanded edition.

This exhaustive overview, which goes into greater detail than most other books covering pulp-magazine history, was originally conceived as a collector's handbook but has been recognized as a valuable reference work for newly minted devotees of rough-paper fiction.
The 2018 edition continues along the same lines while still retaining its appeal to advanced hobbyists.

Along with addressing previous omissions and making editorial corrections, we have added nearly 10,000 words of new copy (recently uncovered facts and additional analysis) to the existing manuscript. 
We've also included more cover reproductions, among them at least a half dozen important first issues left out of the original 2013 edition.

What's more, we have updated the four appendices, which supply carefully compiled lists of mass-market pulp-fiction anthologies, reference books about the pulps, small-press publishers specializing in rough-paper fiction reprints, and a collector's guide to building a comprehensive pulp-magazine collection.  Perhaps most importantly, the book now has a complete index — the lack of which was the only substantive complaint we've ever received about the earlier Guide.

The new material has been added (without significantly increasing the book's page count and list price) by slightly reducing the text's font size, thus getting more words per page. 
We also filled blank pages that previously separated chapters. The 2013 Guide had 414 pages, the 2018 revision has 428.

The revised BLOOD 'N' THUNDER GUIDE TO PULP FICTION, in our opinion, represents a significant improvement on what has already been considered one of the foremost works covering the subject. 
Like its predecessor, the book is priced at $29.95 (postage included to domestic U.S. purchasers) and is available at muraniapress.com. 
Shipping begins during the first week of September.

Author:
MICKEY SPILLANE

Edited by Max Allan Collins & Lynn F. Myers, Jr.

40 fast-moving short-short stories by the creator of Mike Hammer!

Before Mike Hammer, P.I. made his explosive debut in I, the Jury, author Mickey Spillane (1918-2006) toiled in relative obscurity, writing short-short stories as filler material in Golden Age comic books. Their purpose to fulfill a postal requirement, these stories were the literary boot-camp for the future king of hardboiled fiction.

In commemoration of the year-long Spillane centenary, Bold Venture Press is proud to release the newly revised and expanded edition of Primal Spillane: Early Stories 1941 - 1942. This unique anthology, long out-of-print and largely unavailable, returns with additional material never before reprinted — and a newly discovered, previously unpublished story by Spillane.

In this collection, you’ll meet high-flying soldiers, a prospector exploring a Lovecraftian mine-shaft, a light-fingered con artist, an overworked cub reporter, a hapless exterminator, and many others.

Readers have the opportunity to see a master develop his craft. Primal Spillane collects the earliest short stories bylined Mickey Spillane — Each story moves fast, and concludes with the trademark Spillane “socko finish.”

The combined cost of the rare comic books in which these text pieces first appeared today would be more than that of a new Cadillac; but these short stories provide their own memorable rides. Their value as a training ground for the 20th Century's top crime-fiction writer is priceless when compared to the millions of fans across the world entertained by Mickey Spillane's prose.

Introduction by Max Allan Collins, America’s top crime-fiction author, and Lynn F. Myers, Jr.

What October Brings celebrates the dark traditions of the autumn rituals, of Halloween and Samhain, in homage to the uniquely fascinating fiction of HP Lovecraft. Masters of the short story offer you a “once in a lifetime” Trick-or-Treat experience…
…perhaps your last experience!

CLASSIC CRIME FICTION OF THE 1920'S - Coming October 2!
by Leslie S. Klinger, Otto Penzler


A riveting collection of five of the most famous crime novels of the 1920s, presenting anew some of the most admired authors of the era―with insightful annotations by the Edgar-winning anthologist Leslie S. Klinger.

American crime writing was reborn in the 1920s. After years of dominance by British authors, new American writers―with fresh ideas about the detective and the mystery―appeared on the scene and rose to heights of popularity not witnessed since the success of the Sherlock Holmes tales in America. 
Classic American Crime Writing of the 1920s―including House Without a Key, The Benson Murder Case, The Roman Hat Mystery, Red Harvest, and Little Caesar―offers some of the very best of that decade’s writing. Earl Derr Biggers wrote about Charlie Chan, a Chinese-American detective, at a time when racism was rampant. S. S. Van Dine invented Philo Vance, an effete, rich amateur psychologist who flourished while America danced and the stock market rose. The quintessential American detective Ellery Queen leapt onto the stage, to remain popular for fifty years. Dashiell Hammett brings readers another mystery narrated by the Continental Op. W. R. Burnett, created the indelible character of Rico, the first gangster antihero.

Each of the five novels included is presented in its original published form, with extensive historical and cultural annotations and illustrations added by Edgar-winning editor Leslie S. Klinger, allowing the reader to experience the story to its fullest. Klinger's detailed foreword gives an overview of the history of American crime writing from its beginnings in the early years of America to the twentieth century. This gorgeously illustrated volume includes over 100 color and black and white images as well as an introduction by the eminent mystery publisher Otto Penzler.

Over 100 color and black-and-white illustrations

CONAN  - Now available!

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:

Conan le Cimmérien - Au-delà de la rivière noire - Now available!
Screenwriter: Mathieu Gabella
Designer and Colorist: Anthony Jean


The Pictish country is a dark jungle where the border between civilization and barbarism is thin. One thing only symbolizes it: the black river, which no white man is supposed to have crossed and come back alive. None, except Conan. It is at the heart of this green hell that the Cimmerian meets Balthus, a young peasant volunteer whom he rescues in extremis from the claws of fierce Pictish warriors. Together, they will try to lend a hand to the settlers who settled here on these hostile lands in the last bastion of civilization. With a dozen men, they will have to find the powerful wizard Zogar Sag before he succeeds in uniting the clans and engage his bloody invasion ...

The authors of The Unicorn revive Beyond the Black River , reputed as one of the best stories of Conan. A survivalist and warrior narrative carried away by the relentless pace of Mathieu Gabella's script and the strength of Anthony Jean's stroke.

Hermes Press: DC COMICS BEFORE SUPERMAN MAJOR WHEELER NICHOLSON PULP COMICS - Arriving in comic shops September 26!

Before Batman and Superman were even a glimmer in Bill Finger and Jerry Siegel's eyes, Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson created National Allied Publications, which would then go on to become DC Comics; one of the largest comic publishers in the world. This groundbreaking book explores the history of DC Comics before it became the behemoth we know today; the pulp stories that formed the basis for all the different kinds of comics that exist today.

Titles included in this historical reprint include Barry O'Neill and Fang Gow (script: Wheeler-Nicholson; art: Leo O'Mealia), Blood Pearls (script: Wheeler-Nicholson; art: Munson Paddock), Foe of the Borgias (script and art: Sven Elven), The Golden Dragon (script and art- Tom Hickey), and more!

All the comics included in this tome have been painstakingly reproduced and repaired to show how they would have looked back in the 1930s; and also included are all the pulps that the comics were based on!

With an essay from Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson on the formation of National Allied Publications, an introduction by Jim Steranko, and an afterward by comics historian Tom Andrae.

The Incredible Adventures of Vic Challenger
BLOODY REPRISAL
Now available!



Billed as the Queen of New Pulp Adventure, Vic is a 1920’s heroess who runs into bad guys and cryptids in every adventure. Besides being well educated with degrees in astronomy and mathematics she is the reincarnation of a cave girl. That primitive persona is alive and well and enables Vic with the fearlessness, instincts, senses and ferocity of an apex predator. In Bloody Reprisal, an old enemy ambushes Vic and a friend in reprisal for earlier interference. The attack leaves Vic seeing blood red and she goes after the man to deliver a reprisal of her own.  Enroute, she runs into a creature that has dealt reprisal against a family for 300 years.  Vic picks up some scars and learns something about revenge and forgiveness. The back cover guarantees unpredictable adventure so you can probably look forward to some unexpected twists in the plot. .

James Rollins: CRUCIBLE - Coming January 8!

In the race to save one of their own, Sigma Force must wrestle with the deepest spiritual mysteries of mankind in this mind-expanding adventure from the #1 New York Times bestselling author, told with his trademark blend of cutting edge science, historical mystery, and pulse-pounding action.

Arriving home on Christmas Eve, Commander Gray Pierce discovers his house ransacked, his pregnant lover missing, and his best friend’s wife, Kat, unconscious on the kitchen floor. With no shred of evidence to follow, his one hope to find the woman he loves and his unborn child is Kat, the only witness to what happened. But the injured woman is in a semi-comatose state and cannot speak—until a brilliant neurologist offers a radical approach to "unlock" her mind long enough to ask a few questions.

What Pierce learns from Kat sets Sigma Force on a frantic quest for answers that are connected to mysteries reaching back to the Spanish Inquisition and to one of the most reviled and blood-soaked books in human history—a Medieval text known as the Malleus Maleficarum, the Hammer of Witches. What they uncover hidden deep in the past will reveal a frightening truth in the present and a future on the brink of annihilation, and force them to confront the ultimate question: What does it mean to have a soul?

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

by Seabury Quinn
Now shipping!

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.

The Spider #76 Audiobook
The Spider and the Pain Master
by Emile C. Tepperman writing as Grant Stockbridge

Read by Nick Santa Maria
Now available!

 



 What chance had Richard Wentworth — alone — of crushing Red Feather, an amazing murder mogul who drafted legions of innocent New Yorkers into his vile service by the infliction of unbearable, scientifically applied pain? Read, in this strong, book length novel, about the Spider’s weird, pulse-quickening battle with the Torture Trust!
 
Author Norvell W. Page described Richard Wentworth was a nemesis of the night, a swift and secret avenger who meted out lethal justice to those of the Underworld who dared to raise their hand against humanity; he was the man known throughout half the civilized world as the Spider, and tonight he wore the disguise that would instantly identify him as that dread killer. A long, black cape covered twisted shoulders. A broad-brimmed hat tightly pulled down over a lank wig shadowed a beak-nosed face. The eyes that glittered there were steely with bitter hatred.



The reader could easily believe it. With a “cold cosmic anger” in his eyes, his “eerie weapons of mercy” blasting away unerringly, the Spider seemed superhuman, shrugging off crippling bullet wounds and performing other feats of preternatural endurance that would have demolished an ordinary mortal. No wonder Norvell W. Page called him a “man of steel” four years before Superman.
 
Nick Santa Maria takes on the dual persona of Richard Wentworth and his arachnid alter-ego for this nail-biting audio rendition of The Spider and the Pain Master. Originally published in The Spider magazine, January, 1940.

The Purple Invasion story #9 of 13
 
They thundered through the high passes of the Continental Divide, those rolling drums of doom, heralding the attack of the Purple Emperor’s mighty armies which had conquered all of Eastern America to the Rockies. Rallying to hold the Divide, Operator #5, alone with a handful of weary, starving defenders, pits himself against Rudolph’s unconquered destroying hordes, his only weapon the strategy of bold and desperate men with their backs to an alien seat.
 
Originally written by master pulpsmith Frederick C. Davis, Operator #5 was a clear forerunner of the spy genre, which exploded in the 1960s when President John F. Kennedy happened to remark that he enjoyed reading Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels. Soon, America was surrounded by spies. The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Our Man Flint, and Nick Carter, Killmaster were just a few of the most prolific. Jimmy Christopher was on the job a generation before them all, blazing the espionage trail, and keeping America safe from fascism and other wicked isms.


 
What makes Operator #5 richer than even those characters, however, is how well the concept handled the hard left turn of the Purple Invasion. Jimmy’s transition from spy to rebel leader not only worked, but it made this rather run of the mill character a Pulp classic and affected pulp storytelling thereafter.
 
The goose-stepping armies of the Purple Emperor massed in the passes of the Continental Divide, ready to swoop down upon the last defenders of American soil and drive them relentlessly westward into the sea. Grimly the besieged force, without guns or supplies, awaited the attack they could not hope to hold off. Then Operator #5 played his last card — a daring dash into the Occupied Territory, where his life was worth a province to the man who could deliver him into the eager hands of a torture-mad emperor!
 
Drums of Destruction is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the July-August 1937 issue of Operator #5 magazine.
 
Performed by Audie Awards winner, voice actor Milton Bagby.

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.
 
The jade-robed Buddhist priest who battled crime as The Green Lama is back! Conceived in 1939 to compete with The Shadow, it was an outlandish concept. While The Shadow possessed the power to cloud men’s minds after his time in the East, The Green Lama relied on other, even weirder, powers — including the ability to become radioactive and electrically shock opponents into submission! He carried a traditional Tibetan scarf, which he employed to bind and befuddle opponents, and possessed a knowledge of vulnerable nerve centers which he put to good use in hand-and-hand combat. Om Mani Padme Hum! The Green Lama knows! The Green Lama returns in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
 
Table of Contents:
 
The Ninth Adventure of The Green Lama
The Case of the Mad Magi
by Kendell Foster Crossen writing as Richard Foster
The fiendish mind of a mad killer applies a magician’s stock-in-trade to crime and only a greater magician — The Green Lama — can cope with him.
 
The Tenth Adventure of The Green Lama
The Case of The Vanishing Ships
by Kendell Foster Crossen writing as Richard Foster
Ships that vanished into thin air — a fortune in gold that remained untouched — and a murder that couldn’t happen, but did — these were the puzzles to tax the Green Lama’s mystical powers.

In the land of Ajad, Hassan, the jealous and treacherous twin of rightful, good caliph Kasim targets his brother for murder and assumes his identity. Unknown to Hassan, Kasim survives his scheming brother's midnight coup and assumes the identity of a legendary outlaw called "the Hawk." Kasim and his loyal allies must battle Hassan's treasonous assassins and the dangerous Brothers of the Sword in order to help the rightful ruler win the love of beautiful princess Azala and work his way back to the throne.

An action-packed and entertaining exotic adventure story with lavish sets and an engaging plot, featuring a good cast including a solid leading man in a dual role and many familiar supporting classic serial actors. One of a few costume epic serials of the 1940s that tried something different.

THE MOON MAID #1
(Writer) Christopher Mills (Art) Gabriel Rearte,
(Cover) Mike Wolfer

Deep beneath the crust of the Earth's moon lies a fantastic world of lush, purple vegetation, hideous monsters, the half-human/half-horse Va-gas, and the most incredible, alluring creature in the universe... Nah-ee-lah, the "Moon Maid!"

American Mythology is proud to present Edgar Rice Burroughs' immortal, sci-fi action adventure in comic book form, in all-new adventures that finds Nah-ee-lah a prisoner of the cannibalistic Va-gas, but salvation arrives in the form of two time and space-travelling adventurers from the prehistoric continent of Caspak, "The Land That Time Forgot!"

This thrilling first issue also serves as the second chapter in the "Fear on Four Worlds" saga, which ties Burroughs' greatest fantasy worlds together into one shared universe, including Va-nah (The Moon Maid), Amtor (Carson of Venus), Pellucidar, and Caspak (The Land That Time Forgot). The Moon Maid comes with four covers - Main Cover by Mike Wolfer, Visions of the Moon & B&W Limited Edition Covers by Gabriel Rearte, and a Blank Sketch Edition.

BEST OF DON WINSLOW OF THE NAVY - Arriving in comic shops September 19!

By Frank V. Martinek. Edited by Craig Yoe. A collection of the best stories from the classic Fawcett run of Don Winslow of the Navy, beginning with the first issue in 1953. Long, well illustrated introduction detailing his appearances first as a newspaper comic strip (1934-52), then in films, books, pulps and other media. Winslow fights the Axis and super villains like The Snake and the smoldering hot, but deadly, Singapore Sal, a lady pirate. The character served to foster recruitment, entertain Navy personnel and the general public during World War II and beyond and was wildly popular.


Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
Now shipping!

Long the best-selling title in Murania Press history — nearly 2000 copies in print, with copies sold in 23 countries — THE BLOOD 'N' THUNDER GUIDE TO PULP FICTION is now available in a new revised and expanded edition.

This exhaustive overview, which goes into greater detail than most other books covering pulp-magazine history, was originally conceived as a collector's handbook but has been recognized as a valuable reference work for newly minted devotees of rough-paper fiction.
The 2018 edition continues along the same lines while still retaining its appeal to advanced hobbyists.

Along with addressing previous omissions and making editorial corrections, we have added nearly 10,000 words of new copy (recently uncovered facts and additional analysis) to the existing manuscript. 
We've also included more cover reproductions, among them at least a half dozen important first issues left out of the original 2013 edition.

What's more, we have updated the four appendices, which supply carefully compiled lists of mass-market pulp-fiction anthologies, reference books about the pulps, small-press publishers specializing in rough-paper fiction reprints, and a collector's guide to building a comprehensive pulp-magazine collection.  Perhaps most importantly, the book now has a complete index — the lack of which was the only substantive complaint we've ever received about the earlier Guide.

The new material has been added (without significantly increasing the book's page count and list price) by slightly reducing the text's font size, thus getting more words per page. 
We also filled blank pages that previously separated chapters. The 2013 Guide had 414 pages, the 2018 revision has 428.

The revised BLOOD 'N' THUNDER GUIDE TO PULP FICTION, in our opinion, represents a significant improvement on what has already been considered one of the foremost works covering the subject. 
Like its predecessor, the book is priced at $29.95 (postage included to domestic U.S. purchasers) and is available at muraniapress.com. 
Shipping begins during the first week of September.
