The Brood of the Yellow Dragon and other Stories
John Fiske found himself being swirled along in the waters of the Yangtze away from the U.S. gunboat “Bennington.” Slinking, yellow hands pulled him out—pulled him into the most amazing thrilling adventures ever experienced by any man.  Li Youan, the fearless tiger of Hupeh was capturing Americans—Russia also had her tentacles in this powerful national intrigue—and in the midst of it appeared Fiske, fighting as only a Yankee can. One of Eliot’s most dramatic, exciting stories, and one with a much from beginning to end.

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 Midnight Ace,” – Flying Aces, June 1934

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 Complete Cases of Needle Mike, Volume 1 (The Dime Detective Library)
by William E. Barrett

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


The Complete Cases of Inspector Allhoff, Volume 2 (The Dime Detective Library)
by D.L. Champion

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


The Complete Cases of Ken Carter (The Dime Detective Library)
by Norvell Page

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 | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover

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.

Galahad’s Doom II: “Marching As To War”
Now available in Trade Paperback and on Kindle!

White Rocket Books proudly announces the release in trade paperback and Kindle e-book formats of David Wright’s GALAHAD’S DOOM II: MARCHING AS TO WAR, the new fantasy epic adventure sequel to MY BROTHER’S KEEPER.

Invasion. War. Darkness. These are the Beginning of Sorrows.
A mysterious knight born in the depths of Hell leads an army of beasts and demons as they march to a single goal: Conquest. For the glory of the Serpent, all that is Good must fall.
But as war engulfs the kingdom, Galen Griffon begins a journey of discovery that could represent the world’s only hope.
Sworn into the knighthood of the Church, Galen is thrust onto a quest and told to save the world. Upon this journey he must face his deepest fears, discover his father’s tragic secret and reunite with his beloved Ariana in time to save the kingdom.

Queen Azzrea has sent her new champion, Dark Lord Iscariot, to the front lines of war. Armies and cities fall before him.  Hosts of demons swarm over the realm. In this storm of violence and fear and darkness, a single light flickers. The Angelic brand on Galen’s arm and the fruit grove of a secluded monastery may unlock the desperate secret to survival.
Wright picks up from the events of My Brother’s Keeper in this action-packed sequel as he continues his exploration of faith in a magical world.

“This series is amazing,” says Van Allen Plexico, publisher of White Rocket Books, “and I’m thrilled that White Rocket is able to bring them to the world. David has delivered a massive, action-packed sequel to his remarkable first book, and once again he’s found that magic formula of high fantasy, adventure and spirituality that made the first one so unique.”

“I’m excited to finally get this story to my readers,” adds Wright. “It’s fun to bring back familiar characters while introducing new ones. It’s beyond thrilling for me to payoff so many set-ups from the first book and to reveal the nature and inspiration of Galen’s quest all while ramping up the action.  The reader feedback I received for the first book was very encouraging and I hope they’ll all come back to see how the story continues. I’m proud of the story I’ve told and I feel like I could write these characters forever.”

Now in its fourteenth year, White Rocket Books is a leader in the New Pulp movement, publishing exciting action and adventure novels and anthologies, in both traditional and electronic formats.   White Rocket books have hit the Amazon.com Top 5-by-Genre and reached #1 on the New Pulp Bestsellers List, and have garnered praise from everyone from Marvel Comics Vice-President Tom Brevoort and Avengers scribe David Michelinie to Hard Case Crime’s Charles Ardai and Kirkus Reviews.

MARCHING AS TO WAR is a $15.95, 6x9 format trade paperback and a $3.99 Kindle eBook from White Rocket Books.
412 pages.  ISBN-13: 978-1976156656 (5.5” x 8.5” Trade Paperback)

JAMES BOND 007 - Coming in November!

Dynamite Entertainment has announced a November launch for James Bond 007, from writer Greg Pak and Marc Laming.

Here's how Dynamite describe the book:

"The series begins as Agent 007 tracks a smuggler into Singapore to secure a dangerous case, contents unknown. But a Korean mystery man wants the case as well, for very different reasons. If Bond and this new rival don't kill each other, the ruthless terrorist organization known as ORU will be more than happy to finish the job."

"I'm thrilled to have the chance to play with these classic characters, giving them the biggest surprises, the funnest toys, and the wildest plot twists we can come up with -- and maybe even a surprisingly moving emotional endgame," Pak said. "And I'm hugely excited about this creative team, with Marc Laming giving us that sleek action and character work he does so well! Can't wait 'til we can show you what we're cooking up!"

"Greg, Marc, colorist Triona Farrell and letterer Ariana Maher are bringing something completely different to this series. This is an ongoing Bond story, but it also stars someone else, a mystery man that won't get out of Bond's way, on a global scale. They're sometimes foes, sometimes allies, but Bond and this charming, deadly mystery man are constantly chasing after the same dangerous things for different reasons," said series editor Nate Cosby. "Greg's conception of this race-the-clock, spy-vs-spy dynamics is really going to excite people, and Marc's superior storytelling and incredible attention to detail will delight you."

The book will feature covers by Dave Johnson, John Cassady, Rafael Albuquerque and Marc Laming.

(Writer) Kieron Gillen & Various (Art) Antonio Fuso & Various (Cover) Tula Lotay

Contains Four exhilarating stand-alone Bond stories from superstar creators.

SERVICE: In contemporary politics, where Britain's world standing is often more zero than 007, an assassin plans to exterminate the "special relationship," and lead Britain and the United States into a very dark place...especially when he does so by aiming down the sights of an ancient Enfield rifle! It'll test Bond's deadly talents to their limits, in order to defeat the assassin and avert certain geopolitical disaster...

MONEYPENNY: Friend of JAMES BOND, former MI6 field agent and bodyguard of M! On a 'routine' protection mission, Moneypenny discovers a complicated assassination plot that bears a startling resemblance to a terrorist attack from her childhood. Can she call upon her secret agent skills to stop the plot...?

SOLSTICE: 007 accepts an unofficial mission. He travels to Paris, in pursuit of a Russian. But is Bond the hunter, or the hunted?

M: James Bond's superior, code-named M, scrambles MI6's secret agents across the globe. Sometimes, he knowingly sends them to their deaths, for the greater good. But a traumatic event from M's early days in the eld returns to haunt him, forcing M to return to the scene of a crime...HIS crime.

THE LONE RANGER - Coming in October!

Dynamite Entertainment has announced a new The Lone Ranger series, to premiere in October from writer Mark Russell and artist Bob Q.

Here's how Dynamite describes the book:

"1883. The advent of barbed wire is creating havoc in the Texas panhandle. A corrupted state senator conspires with dirty ranchers to make land unnavigable for open rangers and native tribes, passing new laws allowing cattlemen to kill anyone caught cutting the wire. Good people are getting hurt, and The Lone Ranger must act. But to truly stop this rampant villainy, he'll need to go all the way to the top, and rely on an old friend for help..."

"The western is, like jazz, one of the truly great American art forms and I wanted to use it to tell America's story," Russell said. "About how we've used the West to mythologize ourselves, about how the West is at once the metaphor and reality for where we've come from and our struggle to control where this nation is heading.

"Bob Q's art on this series is fantastic and I think this series will remind people what they love about the Lone Ranger and Tonto while showing them sides of these characters they never thought they'd see."

The first issue features covers by John Cassady, Mike Allred and Fracesco Francavilla.

THE THING’S INCREDIBLE!
THE SECRET ORIGINS OF WEIRD TALES
by  John Locke

Now available in soft and hard cover editions!

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.

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry, Pennsylvania
Guest of Honor — Joe Lansdale
Thursday, July 26 through Sunday, July 29, 2018


Are you thinking about 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 room.
Mr. Lansdale will also be available at other times during the convention.

For All Members

All PulpFest 2018 members — including dealers — must register for the convention.

The Spider #67 Audiobook
Blight of the Blazing Eye
by Wayne Rogers writing as Grant Stockbridge

Read by Nick Santa Maria

Now available!

Over New York fell the murderous spell of Death’s burning stare — and men died in the throes of some terrible, secret, inner fire! Richard Wentworth, alone, as the Spider, dared challenge this astounding attack by a modern Genghis Khan gone mad with a passion for loot and power!
 
The Spider was by far the most complicated and violent pulp hero. Yet there was a human side to this complex man. Consider his strange relationship with his semi-fiancé, Nita van Sloan.

 
 
When he had met Nita, his life was already pledged to the service of humanity. The Spider had been a scourge of the Underworld for three full years. So he had fought against the love he knew could never reached culmination in marriage. What man could marry, have a home and children, when death and disgrace hung hourly over his head? No, he could not permit Nita to face such a possibility. He had told her that, long ago, when they found their love was stronger than the will to resist; had told her about his secret life in the hope that it might accomplish what his will had not. It had only drawn Nita closer to him, and they had fought the hard way together. As Wentworth once remarked to her, “How perfectly is thy mystic karma attuned to mine!”
 
His best friend, Commissioner Stanley Kirkpatrick, pointedly informed him on one blunt occasion that he would send Richard Wentworth to the death house if positive proof that the wealthy criminologist was really the Spider ever came into his hands. Once, Kirkpatrick actually did. And Wentworth admired him for it.
 
Nick Santa Maria reads Blight of the Blazing Eye with indescribable emotion. Originally published in The Spider magazine, April, 1939.

Captain Philip Strange: Strange Squadrons (Volume 7)
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! This seventh collection of Philip Strange tales by Donald E. Keyhoe includes his very first adventure from 1931, A Squadron Will Perish, along with five other tales of sinister staffels: Port of Missing Pilots, The Fokker Fiend, The Midnight Ace, Squadron from the Grave, and The Mad Squadron.

The Jailbird Flight: The Devil Flies High (Volume 2)
They had all been sentenced to a living death, but rather than wither behind bars they were given the chance to die fighting! 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! This second volume of Jailbird Flight stories by Donald E. Keyhoe, collects the final five adventures from Popular Publications' Battle Birds and Dare-Devil Aces magazines: The Jailbird Patrol, The Cyclone Patrol, The Red Lightning Ace, The Hooded Ace, and The Skeleton Ace (1934).

Within forty-eight hours you and your comrades will be wiped from the face of the earth. Nothing can save you!” This message, signed Ekar, was dropped on Dusty’s drome; at the same time another Yank air field nearby was wiped out by a new horror weapon—a flaming rain that destroyed everything it touched!

The Complete Cases of Needle Mike, Volume 1 (The Dime Detective Library)
by William E. Barrett

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


The Complete Cases of Inspector Allhoff, Volume 2 (The Dime Detective Library)
by D.L. Champion

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


The Complete Cases of Ken Carter (The Dime Detective Library)
by Norvell Page

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 | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover
