Airship 27 Productions
THE PURPLE SCAR: THE BLACK FOG
Now available!

Airship 27 Productions is proud to present the very first full length Purple Scar novel written by New Pulp author, Gene Moyers.

A hooded man suddenly appears on the streets of Akelton carrying a strange device strapped to his back. Affixed to it is a nozzle from which enveloping black fog spews forth quickly swallowing everything in its path; to include men, women in children. And just like that the city is thrown into panic as the mysterious villain begins popping up all over the city wielding his eerie weapon.

Realizing he is facing a supernatural threat, Captain Dan Griffin enlists the aid of the city’s own gruesome crime fighter, the Purple Scar. Secretly plastic surgeon Doctor Miles Murdoch, the Scar, with the aid of his nurse Dale Jordan and ally Tommy Pedlar, is quickly on the hunt for the mastermind behind the fog of terror. For in the first time in his vigilante career, the Purple Scar is battling an evil scientific genius whose purposes can only herald doom and bloodshed. It is a battle he cannot afford to lose.

Having contributed short stories to the two previous volumes in this series, Moyers took the next step in writing a novel featuring the Haunted Horror.  “We see it often enough,” says Airship 27 Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “Every now and then a New Pulp writer will develop a special affinity for a golden age character. Moyers seemed to have fixated on the uniqueness of the Scar’s persona. More than just a run-of-the-mill avenger type, the Purple Scar stories infused a generous portion of horror along with their suspense. It was this added element that fascinated Moyers and eventually inspired him to write The Black Fog. And we couldn’t be any happier.”

Joining Moyers on the project were two amazing artists. Former Pulp Factory Award winner Chris Kohler provided the 9 black and white interior illustrations while British painter Graham Hill the eerie colorful cover depicting the gruesome Scar.  Art Director Rob Davis brought it all together to produce one of Airship 27 Productions’ most spectacular titles. If you think you know the Purple Scar, think again.

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.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
BLOOD 'N' THUNDER PRESENTS: PULPOURRI
By Ed Hulse, Rick Lai, Will Murray, Laurie Powers, Jeffrey Shanks, Dave Smith
Edited by Ed Hulse
Now available and begins shipping May 7!

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 centuries."

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.

Clive Cussler: The Gray 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.

But shortly after setting sail, the Cimmerian and his new companions face a threat: the pirates of the legendary Bêlit, self-proclaimed Queen of the Black Coast! After a tough fight, Conan is a sensation to his terrible opponent who soon falls in love. She sees in him the one she has always expected, the pirate king who will lead his men to glory ...

Jean-David Morvan and Pierre Alary deliver a great performance of The Queen of the Black Coast, Conan's matrix narrative that shows all the facets of the character and forms the synthesis of its mythological essence.

Conan le Cimmérien - Le colosse noir - Full color edition is now available; B&W edition coming May 23!
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.
UNTAMED PELLUCIDAR
By Lee Strong
Illustrated by Douglas Klauba

Now available in hardcover!

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.

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.


AUTHOR
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 !!!

THE COLLECTED CAPTAIN FUTURE VOLUME 4
By Edmond Hamilton & Joesph Samachson

Coming soon & available for pre-order!

Jumpin’ Jungle Cats of Jupiter! It’s another mega-collection of four complete novels of the “Man of Tomorrow,” the “Wizard of Science,” the protector of the Solar System and a menace to evil-doers throughout the universe: CAPTAIN FUTURE!

Now that Captain Future (aka Dr. Curtis Newton) and the Futuremen (Grag the robot; Otho the Android; and Simon Wright, the Living Brain) have traveled not only through time but to another universe in the final story of Volume Three (See “Planets in Peril”), what other dangers will our heroes encounter?

Well, THE FACE OF THE DEEP sees the Futuremen stranded outside the Solar System on a volcanic planetoid in the company of a shipload of condemned criminals. Up next is WORLDS TO COME (written by Joseph Samachson) where Curt and his crew speed to the rescue of the Sagittarian system—ready to battle in mortal combat with nightmare enemies from another dimension.  Edmond Hamilton (writing as Brett Sterling) returns with THE STAR OF DREAD wherein our heroes ply their stock-in-trade by exposing a dangerous secret menacing humanity and taking desperate risks pursuing two scheming miscreants across the void! Closing out this penultimate volume of the novel-length adventures of The Futuremen is MAGIC MOON. Adorned by one of Earle K. Bergey’s finest cover paintings, we see conspirators plotting to seize the satellite Styx, third moon of Pluto, enslaving the peaceful natives, and putting Captain Future and his trusty aides on their most dangerous mission ever!

As with the previous three volumes of THE COLLECTED CAPTAIN FUTURE, “Under Observation,” the CAPTAIN FUTURE letters column is reprinted, and the original pulp covers and interior illustrations are reproduced in a generous appendix.

(Writer) H. P. Lovecraft (Art) Gary Gianni

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 hundred drawings enhance and bring to life the work of two visionaries — Lovecraft and Gianni — in an extraordinary feat of storytelling and art.

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

Coming soon!

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.

He has won two Edgars, for the Encyclopedia of Mystery and Detection (1977) and The Lineup (2010). He has edited more than 70 anthologies and written extensively about mystery fiction.

The first six titles to be released will be The Chinese Orange Mystery by Ellery Queen, The So Blue Marble by Dorothy B. Hughes, Death from a Top Hat by Clayton Rawson, The Red Lamp by Mary Roberts Rinehart, Home Sweet Homicide by Craig Rice, and The Puzzle of the Happy Hooligan by Stuart Palmer.

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.

G-8 and His Battle Aces #9 Audiobook
The Dynamite Squadron
by Robert J. Hogan

Read by Nick Santa Maria

Now available!


They called G-8 the Flying Spy. History never recorded his exploits—and for good reason! No one would ever believe World War I was that wild!
 
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 of audiobooks.

Terror Has Swift Wings - April 1941

Now available!

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

Tarzan and the Lion Man, Synthetic Men of Mars covers
These newly released dust-jackets are as clean as possible.

TARZAN AND THE LION MAN has cover and spine art meticulously redrawn with every line matching St. John's from a 1200ppi scan.

This is reconstructed from the true first edition jacket, not the more common jacket that was issued on the Grosset & Dunlap reprint, the "red Tarzana" and subsequent ERB, Inc. reprints.

SYNTHETIC MEN OF MARS uses a scan of the original John Coleman Burroughs painting on both cover and spine.
The original was smoke damaged in the 1953 fire but I've managed to digitally clean it up while retaining the detail of the brushwork. Click on the image to the right to see what you'll get when you order.

Airship 27 Productions
THE PURPLE SCAR: THE BLACK FOG
Now available!

Airship 27 Productions is proud to present the very first full length Purple Scar novel written by New Pulp author, Gene Moyers.

A hooded man suddenly appears on the streets of Akelton carrying a strange device strapped to his back. Affixed to it is a nozzle from which enveloping black fog spews forth quickly swallowing everything in its path; to include men, women in children. And just like that the city is thrown into panic as the mysterious villain begins popping up all over the city wielding his eerie weapon.

Realizing he is facing a supernatural threat, Captain Dan Griffin enlists the aid of the city’s own gruesome crime fighter, the Purple Scar. Secretly plastic surgeon Doctor Miles Murdoch, the Scar, with the aid of his nurse Dale Jordan and ally Tommy Pedlar, is quickly on the hunt for the mastermind behind the fog of terror. For in the first time in his vigilante career, the Purple Scar is battling an evil scientific genius whose purposes can only herald doom and bloodshed. It is a battle he cannot afford to lose.

Having contributed short stories to the two previous volumes in this series, Moyers took the next step in writing a novel featuring the Haunted Horror.  “We see it often enough,” says Airship 27 Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “Every now and then a New Pulp writer will develop a special affinity for a golden age character. Moyers seemed to have fixated on the uniqueness of the Scar’s persona. More than just a run-of-the-mill avenger type, the Purple Scar stories infused a generous portion of horror along with their suspense. It was this added element that fascinated Moyers and eventually inspired him to write The Black Fog. And we couldn’t be any happier.”

Joining Moyers on the project were two amazing artists. Former Pulp Factory Award winner Chris Kohler provided the 9 black and white interior illustrations while British painter Graham Hill the eerie colorful cover depicting the gruesome Scar.  Art Director Rob Davis brought it all together to produce one of Airship 27 Productions’ most spectacular titles. If you think you know the Purple Scar, think again.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
BLOOD 'N' THUNDER PRESENTS: PULPOURRI
By Ed Hulse, Rick Lai, Will Murray, Laurie Powers, Jeffrey Shanks, Dave Smith
Edited by Ed Hulse
Now available and begins shipping May 7!

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 centuries."

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.

Clive Cussler: The Gray 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.
UNTAMED PELLUCIDAR
By Lee Strong
Illustrated by Douglas Klauba

Now available in hardcover!

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.

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.


AUTHOR
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 !!!


ARTIST

ILLUSTRATED CALL OF CTHULHU HC - Now available!
(Writer) H. P. Lovecraft (Art) Gary Gianni

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 hundred drawings enhance and bring to life the work of two visionaries — Lovecraft and Gianni — in an extraordinary feat of storytelling and art.

LAND TIME FORGOT SEE-TA SAVAGE #2 (OF 2) - Arriving in comic shops May 16!
(Writer/Art/Cover) Mike Wolfer


The shocking conclusion of the two-part tale of treachery and terror on the lost, prehistoric continent of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Caspak! Galu outcast See-Ta has uncovered a disturbing upheaval in the delicate ecosystem of the primeval world she calls home, as dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals are now starving and prowling outside of their natural hunting grounds. But what could have caused this unusual behavior, and does it have anything to do with the hideous, winged Weiroo who wants nothing more than to imprison See-Ta on the horrific breeding-ground island of Oo-oh, or perhaps take her head for a transgression from the past? Based on the novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs, THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT: SEE-TA THE SAVAGE builds upon the Caspak Trilogy and includes cameos by some of the novels' most beloved characters. Comes with two covers - Main & Antique Limited Edition Covers by Mike Wolfer

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

Coming soon!

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.

The Spider #61 Audiobook
The Spider at Bay
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge

Read by Nick Santa Maria
Now available!


Deeper and deeper New York had sunk in the grip of the Underworld monarch — until the law was licked at last! But in that moment of desperation, Richard Wentworth, as the Spider, resolved to fight the underworld with its own savage weapons. With New York’s own police commissioner at his side, the Spider raised a fighting legion of honest men sworn to take the law into their own hands!
 
The great pulp magazines of the 1930s and 40s produced a number of heroes, but none as action-oriented as the Spider. For almost exactly a decade, the Spider was the scourge of the Underworld, doling out his own particular brand of justice and imprinting his dreaded red Spider seal on the foreheads of those he has killed for the good of mankind.



The stories plunge along headfirst aboard an emotional roller coaster. Oriental death-traps, treacherously alluring women, and rabid, machine-gun toting gangsters are all part of a typical day for the hero; Wentworth is frequently suspected of being the dreaded Spider, his home is periodically destroyed, his servants and friends tortured.
 
One of the things that sets the Spider apart from other hero characters is magnitude; the villains commit acts of destruction on a grand scale, sinking whole ocean liners, toppling entire buildings, wiping out entire towns with germ warfare.
 
This thrilling Spider audiobook features acclaimed voice talent Nick Santa Maria, who has made the Spider his own! The Spider at Bay originally published in The Spider magazine, October, 1938.
