F. PAUL WILSON Guest of Honor 2018

Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention is a few months away. 
CELEBRATING HAROLD HERSEY’S 125TH BIRTHDAY AND THE 90TH ANNIVERSARY OF WINGS AND THE AIR WAR PULPS

We’re just over three months away from the 18th annual Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention at The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center in Lombard, IL. 
We’d previously announced that we’d sold out all 155 tables in our dealer room in record time. 
We’re now very pleased to announce that NYT bestselling author F. Paul Wilson will be our Guest of Honor at our 2018 con!

Wilson is the author of over 50 books, many of which feature his popular anti-hero, Repairman Jack. 
Among his numerous awards are the Bram Stoker Award, the Prometheus Award, the Porgie Award and the Inkpot Award. 
His first published story, “The Cleaning Machine,” appeared in the March 1971 issue of Startling Mystery Stories, while his second appeared a month later, in the April 1971 issue of the John Campbell edited Analog. 
His newest novel, “The God Gene,” is scheduled to be released by Forge Books on January 2, 2018. 
Wilson contributed the Foreword to The Art of the Pulps, published in October 2017, where he shared that
“I love the pulps. … I’ve been a fan of the pulps since my teens…” 
We’re excited to have him as our GoH, and we know that our attendees will enjoy meeting him at the convention!

Friday Night Auction to feature material from the estate of Glenn Lord

We’re honored to announce that this year’s Friday night auction will draw on material from the estate of Glenn Lord. As literary executor of the Robert E. Howard estate for nearly three decades, Lord was instrumental in popularizing the works of Howard, and in making reams of previously unpublished Howard material available. It would be difficult to overstate his contributions to Howard’s legacy. Not surprisingly, his own pulp collection was centered around Howard, but also contained many other titles as well. If you’re a fan of pulps – and particularly if you’re a fan of the man who brought us Conan and so many other memorable characters – you won’t want to miss it!

We’ll be posting more details over the coming weeks concerning the pulps, fanzines and other rare material that will be in the auction. For now, we’ll just post the one piece of original art that will be in the auction – Frank Utpatel’s original cover art for the second Robert E. Howard Arkham House collection, “The Dark Man and Others”. The art was a little too large for my scanner, so these images are very slightly cropped, but we’ll post full sized shots later. We’re showing it in two images. The image on the left is Utpatel’s original art, on illustration paper. The image on the right is scanned with the overlay (which contains some image and text) on top of the art.

You have several choices to register for this year's convention.

Mavericks Headlines the Next Wave of Popular Hero Reprints

In stock on January 26 will be all five books in the classic Western series by Kent Thorn, The Mavericks. Originally published by Popular Publications, the Mavericks were a quintet of outlaws fighting for good in the old west. A throwback version of the same theme used in Popular’s Secret 6 series, this series has been out of print for some time. However, they’re available now in the digest-sized Popular Heroes series. Get them now!

Mavericks #1: Five Against the LawMavericks #1: Five Against the Law

They were wanted men, those five hard-riding travelers of the still night trails…. Mavericks all, they had entered outlawry for five different reasons, drawn irresistibly down the Owlhoot Trail from five different walks of rangeland life. They became one living inseparable unit of grim, uncompromising justice, united as one man by their friendship, their burning championship of the underdog—and the high, white flame of their courage…. Step up folks and meet the five Mavericks—Lance Clayton, Doc Grimson, Charlie Parr, Lockjaw Johnson, and Flint Maddox…. You’ll ride with them through many a blood-tingling tale of high adventure and heady romance during the months to come. We know you’ll like your saddlemates!

149 pages | 5.25″ x 8″ | $12.95 softcover


Mavericks #2: Mesquite ManhuntersMavericks #2: Mesquite Manhunters

Men beyond the law, forever outcast from the security and happiness of normal life, were these five inseparable owlhooters. But they rode straight into a bristling hornet’s nest of posse guns to take up a blood debt for the law-abiding folk of Tarpaulin—who had disowned them! Another great novel of those unforgettable, recklessly courageous bravos—Doc Grimson, Lance Clayton, Charlie Parr, Flint Maddox, and the solemn-faced, deadly-shooting Lockjaw Johnson!

159 pages | 5.25″ x 8″ | $12.95 softcover


Mavericks #3: Bait for the Lobo PackMavericks #3: Bait for the Lobo Pack
Five men, bound inseparably together by the immortal bonds of outlaw partnership, rode together below the Border to loot the rich booty of a thieving lobo pack. But the girl they found in that sand-town hell-hole drove them instead to a courage test in a flaming crucible of desert death and blasting killer guns.

158 pages | 5.25″ x 8″ | $12.95 softcover


Mavericks #4: Doc Grimson’s Outlaw PosseMavericks #4: Doc Grimson’s Outlaw Posse
In hidden cabins and moonless rendezvous along the twisted Outlaw Trail, grim riders still whisper the names of the Five Mavericks; still tell, in the hushed midnight silence, of that time in Bear Creek County when Doc Grimson and his longrider bunch risked a sheriff’s noose and lobo lead to cleanse from their name the damning killer sign—braved the hungry guns of an entire county so that one victim of their supposed ruthless gunplay might realize her rightful heritage!

167 pages | 5.25″ x 8″ | $12.95 softcover


Mavericks #5: Charlie Parr’s Gunsmoke CureMavericks #5: Charlie Parr’s Gunsmoke Cure
Charlie Parr, white-haired member of the five inseparable, long-riding Mavericks, wanted to rob a bank and lay up an old-age cache of outlaw loot. The other four were willing to play along—until they ran blindly into a more exciting, more reckless, job, where they could chance their lives and gun-arm skill for a girl’s happiness—and a brave man’s lost courage!

147 pages | 5.25″ x 8″ | $12.95 softcover

Authors include Caitlin R.

Lovecraft is inexhaustibly rich in the inspiration it can provide to contemporary writers of weird fiction.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
By Ed Hulse (editor)
Now available!

The Shadow, The Spider, The Avenger, Doc Savage, The Black Bat, The Phantom Detective — these swashbuckling heroes of mid-20th-century pulp fiction all had one thing in common: They fought crime from outside the law, unhindered by red tape and unmindful of such legal niceties as due process. They fought with fists and guns, for the most part hiding their true identities beneath outlandish costume and grotesque disguises.

This collection of essays by distinguished pulp-fiction aficionados chronicles the era of single-character magazines from offbeat angles and with keen insight. The pieces herein analyze key stories and characters while offering rare, behind-the-scenes glimpses of authors and editors at work, crafting and polishing the pulp-paper fever dreams that enthralled millions of young readers during the Great Depression, World War II, and beyond. Ed Hulse, editor of Blood ‘n’ Thunder, the award-winning journal of adventure, mystery and melodrama, has assembled these affectionate essays with loving care and a discerning eye for the high-water marks in this phase of American popular culture.

This third volume of Blood ‘n’ Thunder Presents, like its predecessors, is profusely illustrated with pulp-magazine covers and original artwork.

Bold Venture Press

Aviation thrills and horrific villains in the tradition of H.P. Lovecraft and G-8 & His Battle Aces!

Foulness spreads across the Florida Everglades. Its gangrenous veins stretch from the salt marshes to the Indian burial grounds, to the Live Oaks, now blackened and dying. Some strange manner of contagion — the like of which has never before been seen in the world — leaves a Stygian residue, as if the very light of creation were being leached from the land.

Is this the result of chemical toxins used to drive back the bestial flies brought to America by the Central Powers? Or has the Twilight Patrol been deceived into bringing damnation for all?

Also includes the short story "The Visions: What is Telling and What is Tolled" by Stuart Hopen.

"Readers nostalgic for the flash and dazzle of pulp derring-do will find this adventure tale a fitting homage." — Publishers Weekly review of Twilight Patrol #1

Another SF thriller of the "Cleanser" universe, originating in The Cathedral by TJ Morris. Accompanied by the short story "Cle' Anon."

In the twenty-second century, an African tribe staves off hostile forces in the Sub-Saharan desert of the Burkina Faso nation.

Ten years after Dahmba (a powerful Cleanser) returned to Burkina Faso, saving his sister from slavers, the Kō tribe faces a more dangerous threat. The mysterious Prophet, leader of the Pure Earth Movement, has eyes on the tribes’s most valuable resource — Collapsium, the lightest, most durable metal in the known solar system. Whenever The Prophet negotiates, dead bodies pile up, and colonies crumble. But the proud Kō tribe isn’t so easily swayed … They’ve faced down adversity in the past, honorably and fiercely ...

Under the leadership of newly-crowned Aminata, the youngest queen to ascend to the throne, Kō warriors vow to retain their land and its resources, and nullify the Prophet’s assassins. With enemies surrounding her, Aminata must make the decisions that will lead her people to success … or failure.

Conan: The Scarlet Citadel

CITY OF ENDLESS NIGHT (Agent Pendergast series) - Now available!
by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child


What begins as a manhunt for the missing daughter of a wealthy tech billionaire becomes something altogether different when the young woman's body is discovered in an abandoned warehouse in Kew Gardens, Queens, the head nowhere to be found. Soon it becomes clear there are at least two killers on the loose--one responsible for the young woman's death, another responsible for the mutilation. A pair of such dastardly killers requires a team of equally talented investigators. Luckily, both Vincent D'Agosta and Special Agent Pendergast are back in town.

D'Agosta hopes that this latest case will distract Pendergast from Constance Green's decision to depart New York for Tibet after the events of THE OBSIDIAN CHAMBER--and provide Pendergast the opportunity to work a case back on his home turf for the first time in years. But neither is prepared to face a team of killers as diabolical as this. It will take all of Pendergast and D'Agosta's intelligence and strength simply to match wits with their latest adversaries--let alone stay alive.

THE DARK ANGEL: THE COMPLETE TALES OF JULES DE GRANDIN, VOLUME THREE - Coming March 20!
by Seabury Quinn


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 third volume, The Dark Angel, includes all of the Jules de Grandin stories from "The Lost Lady" (1931) to "The Hand of Glory" (1933), as well as "The Devil's Bride", the only novel featuring de Grandin, which was originally serialized over six issues of Weird Tales.

A RIVAL FROM THE GRAVE: THE COMPLETE TALES OF JULES DE GRANDIN, VOLUME FOUR - Coming September 4!
by Seabury Quinn


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 SKY PIRATE
FIRST TRADE PAPERBACK PUBLICATION


Helen Grayman, daughter of a New York billionaire, is dressing in her room, when a noise is heard outside of her bedroom window. Her maid, Susan Jackson, opens the window, thinking the noise was made by a pet cat. Instead of a cat, a man, Captain Alfonso Payton, a noted sky pirate-the time is June, 1936-enters the room. The two women are placed on his aeroplane, "Chameleon", and abducted for a ransom. Sky pirates had occupied the attention of the public for some time and their deeds had been very daring. Captain Alfonso is one of the most daring. He is a Spanish-American, handsome and refined. Helen thinks it a prank arranged by her friends. The captain tells her he is Commodore Brown, of the Washington Aero-Yacht Club. After an all-night trip and half a day they arrive at their destination, in the middle of a thick woods. He tells her her friends will be there later, his aero was faster than theirs.

Joel Frieman: ? to 31 December 2017

Joel Frieman passed away on or about 31 December 2017. He resided in Edison, New Jersey at the time of his passing.
He was reportedly found in his apartment after no one had heard from him for several days.


Joel had taken over the rights of Popular Publications under his Argosy Communications banner.
Argosy Communications sold off most of their rights to Matt Morning (Altus Press) under his Steeger Properties banner.
Argosy kept the rights to The Spider, Operator #5, and G-8. Joel's brother will run it, and handle all licensing inquiries.
Doug Ellis owns the rights to Adventure. 
 
Joel and Bob Weinberg had been friends since the early 1960s and were very close over the decades.
Joel and Will Murray were working on a revival of the Spider and some other properties last year.
These projects are going forward and his plans will come to fruition later this year.

 




Hi everyone we have a very special project the John Carter of Mars Roleplaying Game Kickstarter that's launched today.
This is something that's been a passion of mine for many years and I've been waiting to ensure it's very advanced in development to go live. 

John Carter of Mars - Adventures on The Dying World of Barsoom is a planetary romance tabletop role-playing game.
We've created it under license and with the cooperation of the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs, author of the original Barsoom novels.
We've also had guidance of Scott Tracy Griffin one of the leading scholars of his works to ensure utmost authenticity.  

Using a pulp-action inspired narrative variant of Modiphius' 2d20 system, Momentum, John Carter of Mars allows players to take the role of various adventurers and heroes as they travel, battle, and romance their way across the wondrous and dangerous world known to its natives as Barsoom. Play as John Carter, the princess Dejah Thoris or the fearsome Thark warrior Tars Tarkas - or create your own new heroes from a wide variety of options. 
The core book is fully written, and now in layout, depending on what other books are unlocked in the line, we will be aiming for one shipment in the summer prior to a retail release in the fall. As soon as the Kickstarter closes and payments have been processed you will be given access to the complete documents for the core book as well as the full PDF before we go to print, to provide last minute proofreading.

Show time: 10am - 5pm; Admission: $5.00

The Floridian Pulp Adventurecon is back! While the northern east coast hibernates, prepare to discover more pulp magazine and golden age comic treasures!

This year, Golden Age grandmaster Allen Bellman joins the show as our special guest. In 1942, Allen began working at Timely Comics (which eventually became Marvel Comics). He contibuted illustrations to several pulps published by Martin Goodman, and inked backgrounds for Syd Shores on Captain America. He penciled and inked The Human Torch, The Patriot, and many others. He created the one-page recurring mystery feature, Let's Play Detective. Later, Allen worked at Lev Gleason Publications before leaving the comic book industry in the 1950s.

Allen will have copies of Timely Confidential: When the Golden Age of Comics was Young, his rollicking memoir of working for Marvel Comics and Lev Gleason Publications. Learn more about his book, published by Bold Venture Press.

Pulp Adventurecon's theme is largely pulp magazines, but also includes golden age comics, big little books, mens adventure pulps, movie memorabilia, and more vintage paper material.

The Spider #53 Audiobook
The City of Lost Men
by Wayne Rogers writing as Grant Stockbridge

Read by Nick Santa Maria

Now available!

Over New York's Finest — the police organization without equal in the world — fell the blight of lunacy, sweeping on like wildfire until it had turned Manhattan into a chill, whimpering madhouse and released the helpless city's wealth to a wild carnival of crooks and vandals! What was that incredible, unseen force which, in a split-second, could transform sane men into drooling maniacs? No human being could stand against that Mask of Madness, and yet Richard Wentworth, in the Spider’s strange vestments, took up the fight — to strike blow for blow against the merciless emperor of idiocy who had captured a metropolis by addling its brains!

 
Spider author Norvell W. Page once described his hero in gigantic but unflinching terms: “His exploits had raised him to the proportions of a legendary hero. In ancient times, Rome would have made him an emperor-god. Salem might have burned him as a sorcerer. The modern world—well, the police had offered rewards totaling thousands of dollars for his capture ‘dead or alive.’ And the Underworld hated him and plotted his destruction with a fierceness bred of abject terror.
 
“Yes, Richard Wentworth was a murderer in the eyes of the law—a butcher who had slain a hundred, a thousand of his fellow men. They took no account of the fact he killed only those who richly deserved to die, that he alone had prevented a score of master criminals from overwhelming the forces of law and order.”
 
Nick Santa Maria reads this exciting suspense story of murder, mayhem and mystery that perfectly evokes 1938 Manhattan. The City of Lost Men originally published in The Spider magazine, February, 1938.

By special arrangement with Carcosa, we will be publishing the first ever trade paperback edition of Carcosa’s final volume, LONELY VIGILS, a huge collection of Wellman’s Golden Age pulp short stories featuring his supernatural detectives Judge Keith Hilary Pursuivant, Professor Nathan Enderby, and John Thunstone!

We are thrilled to include all of the original George Evans illustrations, digitally restored and looking very swell. A hardcover copy of Lonely Vigils will easily set one back $150 bills, so hang on to those hard-earned dollars!

WORSE THINGS WAITING by Manly Wade Wellman
- Coming Spring/Summer of 2018!
Illustrated by Lee Brown Coye

By special arrangement with Carcosa, we will be publishing the first ever trade paperback edition of this cornerstone book of fantasy and macabre fiction. Twenty-eight classic tales (and two poems) are Wellman at his best, including two early glimpses of John The Balladeer; as well as THE DEVIL IS NOT MOCKED and THIS VALLEY IS STILL, both episodes of Night Gallery and The Twilight Zone respectively, and such all-time classics as SCHOOL OF THE UNSPEAKABLE, and THE UNDEAD SOLDIER, with its terrifying original ending that Weird Tales found too gruesome and had Wellman "soften" it.

Complete with all of the wonderfully creepy Lee Brown Coye illustrations from the original edition in their ghoulish splendor, we are thrilled to present WORSE THINGS WAITING in a new affordable edition that won't set you back serious bucks to own and read. Keep your eyeballs here for further details!

F. PAUL WILSON Guest of Honor 2018

Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention is a few months away. 
CELEBRATING HAROLD HERSEY’S 125TH BIRTHDAY AND THE 90TH ANNIVERSARY OF WINGS AND THE AIR WAR PULPS

We’re just over three months away from the 18th annual Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention at The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center in Lombard, IL. 
We’d previously announced that we’d sold out all 155 tables in our dealer room in record time. 
We’re now very pleased to announce that NYT bestselling author F. Paul Wilson will be our Guest of Honor at our 2018 con!

Wilson is the author of over 50 books, many of which feature his popular anti-hero, Repairman Jack. 
Among his numerous awards are the Bram Stoker Award, the Prometheus Award, the Porgie Award and the Inkpot Award. 
His first published story, “The Cleaning Machine,” appeared in the March 1971 issue of Startling Mystery Stories, while his second appeared a month later, in the April 1971 issue of the John Campbell edited Analog. 
His newest novel, “The God Gene,” is scheduled to be released by Forge Books on January 2, 2018. 
Wilson contributed the Foreword to The Art of the Pulps, published in October 2017, where he shared that
“I love the pulps. … I’ve been a fan of the pulps since my teens…” 
We’re excited to have him as our GoH, and we know that our attendees will enjoy meeting him at the convention!

Friday Night Auction to feature material from the estate of Glenn Lord

We’re honored to announce that this year’s Friday night auction will draw on material from the estate of Glenn Lord. As literary executor of the Robert E. Howard estate for nearly three decades, Lord was instrumental in popularizing the works of Howard, and in making reams of previously unpublished Howard material available. It would be difficult to overstate his contributions to Howard’s legacy. Not surprisingly, his own pulp collection was centered around Howard, but also contained many other titles as well. If you’re a fan of pulps – and particularly if you’re a fan of the man who brought us Conan and so many other memorable characters – you won’t want to miss it!

We’ll be posting more details over the coming weeks concerning the pulps, fanzines and other rare material that will be in the auction. For now, we’ll just post the one piece of original art that will be in the auction – Frank Utpatel’s original cover art for the second Robert E. Howard Arkham House collection, “The Dark Man and Others”. The art was a little too large for my scanner, so these images are very slightly cropped, but we’ll post full sized shots later. We’re showing it in two images. The image on the left is Utpatel’s original art, on illustration paper. The image on the right is scanned with the overlay (which contains some image and text) on top of the art.

BLACK WINGS OF CTHULHU (VOLUME 5) TPB - Coming January 16!
by S. T. Joshi

Twenty new short stories in the tradition of the famed writer H. P. Lovecraft, produced by a lineup of authors considered to be among his most skilled and dedicated acolytes. Authors include Caitlin R. Kiernan, Donald Tyson, Darrell Schweitzer, and Nancy Kilpatrick, and the stories range from scientists who come face to face with the appalling implications of their discoveries, to the psychological aberrations of characters as they come face-to-face with the bizarre. Black Wings of Cthulhu 5 will take its place as a pioneering anthology that shows how the work of H. P. Lovecraft is inexhaustibly rich in the inspiration it can provide to contemporary writers of weird fiction.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
By Ed Hulse (editor)
Now available!

The Shadow, The Spider, The Avenger, Doc Savage, The Black Bat, The Phantom Detective — these swashbuckling heroes of mid-20th-century pulp fiction all had one thing in common: They fought crime from outside the law, unhindered by red tape and unmindful of such legal niceties as due process. They fought with fists and guns, for the most part hiding their true identities beneath outlandish costume and grotesque disguises.

This collection of essays by distinguished pulp-fiction aficionados chronicles the era of single-character magazines from offbeat angles and with keen insight. The pieces herein analyze key stories and characters while offering rare, behind-the-scenes glimpses of authors and editors at work, crafting and polishing the pulp-paper fever dreams that enthralled millions of young readers during the Great Depression, World War II, and beyond. Ed Hulse, editor of Blood ‘n’ Thunder, the award-winning journal of adventure, mystery and melodrama, has assembled these affectionate essays with loving care and a discerning eye for the high-water marks in this phase of American popular culture.

This third volume of Blood ‘n’ Thunder Presents, like its predecessors, is profusely illustrated with pulp-magazine covers and original artwork.

Bold Venture Press

Aviation thrills and horrific villains in the tradition of H.P. Lovecraft and G-8 & His Battle Aces!

Foulness spreads across the Florida Everglades. Its gangrenous veins stretch from the salt marshes to the Indian burial grounds, to the Live Oaks, now blackened and dying. Some strange manner of contagion — the like of which has never before been seen in the world — leaves a Stygian residue, as if the very light of creation were being leached from the land.

Is this the result of chemical toxins used to drive back the bestial flies brought to America by the Central Powers? Or has the Twilight Patrol been deceived into bringing damnation for all?

Also includes the short story "The Visions: What is Telling and What is Tolled" by Stuart Hopen.

"Readers nostalgic for the flash and dazzle of pulp derring-do will find this adventure tale a fitting homage." — Publishers Weekly review of Twilight Patrol #1

CITY OF ENDLESS NIGHT (Agent Pendergast series) - Now available!
by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child


What begins as a manhunt for the missing daughter of a wealthy tech billionaire becomes something altogether different when the young woman's body is discovered in an abandoned warehouse in Kew Gardens, Queens, the head nowhere to be found. Soon it becomes clear there are at least two killers on the loose--one responsible for the young woman's death, another responsible for the mutilation. A pair of such dastardly killers requires a team of equally talented investigators. Luckily, both Vincent D'Agosta and Special Agent Pendergast are back in town.

D'Agosta hopes that this latest case will distract Pendergast from Constance Green's decision to depart New York for Tibet after the events of THE OBSIDIAN CHAMBER--and provide Pendergast the opportunity to work a case back on his home turf for the first time in years. But neither is prepared to face a team of killers as diabolical as this. It will take all of Pendergast and D'Agosta's intelligence and strength simply to match wits with their latest adversaries--let alone stay alive.

THE DARK ANGEL: THE COMPLETE TALES OF JULES DE GRANDIN, VOLUME THREE - Coming March 20!
by Seabury Quinn


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 third volume, The Dark Angel, includes all of the Jules de Grandin stories from "The Lost Lady" (1931) to "The Hand of Glory" (1933), as well as "The Devil's Bride", the only novel featuring de Grandin, which was originally serialized over six issues of Weird Tales.

A RIVAL FROM THE GRAVE: THE COMPLETE TALES OF JULES DE GRANDIN, VOLUME FOUR - Coming September 4!

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

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.

TREASURES OF TANTALUS

THERE is no doubt that this story is one of the most absorbing scientifiction tales that has appeared in recent years. Suppose it were possible to construct a sort of radio television apparatus by means of which you could spy upon every one, anywhere in the world. There would be no more secrets. It would be practically impossible to carry on business, and the world would speedily become disorganized and panic would reign. This is the theme of "Treasure's of Tantalus," and the well-known and famous author has made the most of the idea. Now that television has actually been accomplished, the author's idea, while of course not yet realized, is not so impossible as it may appear. Who can tell that this very thing may not come to pass in time to conic? But outside of the scientific accomplishment of the story, you will find it to be a thriller of the first magnitude. There is hardly a page that does not bristle with excitement.

Hi everyone we have a very special project the John Carter of Mars Roleplaying Game Kickstarter that's launched today.
This is something that's been a passion of mine for many years and I've been waiting to ensure it's very advanced in development to go live. 

John Carter of Mars - Adventures on The Dying World of Barsoom is a planetary romance tabletop role-playing game.
We've created it under license and with the cooperation of the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs, author of the original Barsoom novels.
We've also had guidance of Scott Tracy Griffin one of the leading scholars of his works to ensure utmost authenticity.  

Using a pulp-action inspired narrative variant of Modiphius' 2d20 system, Momentum, John Carter of Mars allows players to take the role of various adventurers and heroes as they travel, battle, and romance their way across the wondrous and dangerous world known to its natives as Barsoom. Play as John Carter, the princess Dejah Thoris or the fearsome Thark warrior Tars Tarkas - or create your own new heroes from a wide variety of options. 
The core book is fully written, and now in layout, depending on what other books are unlocked in the line, we will be aiming for one shipment in the summer prior to a retail release in the fall. As soon as the Kickstarter closes and payments have been processed you will be given access to the complete documents for the core book as well as the full PDF before we go to print, to provide last minute proofreading.

"The White Gorilla" by Elmer Brown Mason from ALL-STORY WEEKLY, June 5, 1915
An explorer, whose hobby is collecting examples of albino creatures, recounts his adventure trying to collect a legendary albino gorilla. The gorilla, a totem for a tribe of cannibals figures in a feud between the chieftain and his witch-doctor, complicated by the chieftain's son being in love with the witch-doctor's daughter.

"Three-Way Death" by Bentley Williams from THRILLING DETECTIVE, October 1936

Old Man Banbraugh had a lot of gems in his house which made him a target for thieves but he had secured himself behind a lot of security devices of his own invention.


"Homicide Heritage" by Norman A. Daniels from SECRET AGENT "X", September, 1938

Detective Motley bucked midnight bullets to avenge the death of his brother detective. He had to vindicate himself too - for his prisoner had escaped clean through his hands. And the gory trail led to the son of his dead friend.




Pulp Adventurecon, February 24, 2018
Universal Palms Hotel, Powerline Road, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Show time: 10am - 5pm; Admission: $5.00

The Floridian Pulp Adventurecon is back! While the northern east coast hibernates, prepare to discover more pulp magazine and golden age comic treasures!

This year, Golden Age grandmaster Allen Bellman joins the show as our special guest. In 1942, Allen began working at Timely Comics (which eventually became Marvel Comics). He contibuted illustrations to several pulps published by Martin Goodman, and inked backgrounds for Syd Shores on Captain America. He penciled and inked The Human Torch, The Patriot, and many others. He created the one-page recurring mystery feature, Let's Play Detective. Later, Allen worked at Lev Gleason Publications before leaving the comic book industry in the 1950s.

Allen will have copies of Timely Confidential: When the Golden Age of Comics was Young, his rollicking memoir of working for Marvel Comics and Lev Gleason Publications. Learn more about his book, published by Bold Venture Press.

Pulp Adventurecon's theme is largely pulp magazines, but also includes golden age comics, big little books, mens adventure pulps, movie memorabilia, and more vintage paper material.

Captain Future #20 Audiobook
The Solar Invasion by Manly Wade Wellman

Read by Milton Bagby

Now available!

Curt Newton, Joan Randall and the Futuremen cruise into a strange world peopled with weird, pallid inhabitants, on the quest of a lost satellite which was mysteriously plucked from the sky!
 
Edmond Hamilton is credited by many as the creator and writer of Captain Future. Although he is most responsible for nearly everything in the Captain Future tales, the idea was originally presented to him by Science Fiction editor Mort Weisinger. Also, Hamilton did pen the majority of the stories, but Joseph Samachson also wrote two Captain Future stories and Manly Wade Wellman wrote one. Five of the Captain Future tales carry the byline ‘Brett Sterling’, which was a house name used for a while that both Hamilton and Samachson wrote under.
 


Protecting the universe is not a job that Captain Future and the Futuremen can do alone. The Planet Police, a far reaching organization of law enforcement officers patrolling the solar system, work with Curtis Newton in many of his adventures. Marshal Ezra Gurney is a forty year veteran of the Planet Police, able to remember when law was not widespread. Joan Randall is also a member of the organization, an officer in the elite Planet Patrol. Both Gurney and Joan, however, are considered assigned to work with Captain Future on special duty and are often identified with the Futuremen
 
Mystery is an element of many of the Captain Future stories. Curt Newton and the Futuremen are often faced with not only saving an alien race or preventing planetary destruction, but also learning who is behind the latest evil deed or how it is being done. Clues are left and facts are shared with readers, making the final solution believable and exciting, letting them reveal the bad guy right alongside Captain Future.
 
Rocket into science fiction adventure and discover new worlds. Ripped from the pages of the Fall 1946 issue of Captain Future magazine, “The Solar Invasion” is read with wonder and excitement by Milton Bagby.
Performed by 2017 Audie Awards winner, voice actor Milton Bagby.

Secret Agent "X" #28 eBook
Horror’s Handclasp - October 1936

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.
 
From 1934 to 1939 America thrilled to the adventures of Secret Agent X — the "man of a thousand faces" — as he battled futuristic weapons and mad scientists. The true identity of Secret Agent X was never revealed. He used his mastery of disguise to work undercover for the U.S. government. With his aide, newspaper reporter Betty Dale, and his secretive government handler K-9, he battled weird and fantastical threats to America for forty-one amazing issues. Secret Agent X returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
 
Table of Contents:
 
A Feature-Length Secret Agent “X” Novel
Horror’s Handclasp by G.T. Fleming-Roberts writing as Brant House
The Fury, a master criminal of diabolic genius, was able to checkmate even the brilliant Agent X. Then he made famous men and gorgeous women his pawns to play Satan’s grotesque game of hopscotch upon a gigantic chess board that dealt either death or madness.
 
“G”-Trap by S. Gordon Gurwit
A good-looking girl was ready to queer the government operative — because she thought he was just another wise guy.
 
Torture Tryst by Charles Marquis Warren
Danny Davis wrote too long about a dead man in his column. So Death sent his staring emissary to give the newspaper man an assignment in hell.
 
Beyond Murder by Phil Richards
An intellectual killer planned to use the corpse itself for an alibi.
 
The Phantom Juggernaut by Frederick C. Davis
Hell’s terror-freighted mystery vehicle outmatched Ravenwood’s every strategy. And his only hope of saving the despairing Mavis Lattimer from its rushing weight, lay in guessing a tantalizing clue hidden in a cryptic parable of the East.

F. PAUL WILSON Guest of Honor 2018

Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention is a few months away. 
CELEBRATING HAROLD HERSEY’S 125TH BIRTHDAY AND THE 90TH ANNIVERSARY OF WINGS AND THE AIR WAR PULPS

We’re just over three months away from the 18th annual Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention at The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center in Lombard, IL. 
We’d previously announced that we’d sold out all 155 tables in our dealer room in record time. 
We’re now very pleased to announce that NYT bestselling author F. Paul Wilson will be our Guest of Honor at our 2018 con!

Wilson is the author of over 50 books, many of which feature his popular anti-hero, Repairman Jack. 
Among his numerous awards are the Bram Stoker Award, the Prometheus Award, the Porgie Award and the Inkpot Award. 
His first published story, “The Cleaning Machine,” appeared in the March 1971 issue of Startling Mystery Stories, while his second appeared a month later, in the April 1971 issue of the John Campbell edited Analog. 
His newest novel, “The God Gene,” is scheduled to be released by Forge Books on January 2, 2018. 
Wilson contributed the Foreword to The Art of the Pulps, published in October 2017, where he shared that
“I love the pulps. … I’ve been a fan of the pulps since my teens…” 
We’re excited to have him as our GoH, and we know that our attendees will enjoy meeting him at the convention!

Friday Night Auction to feature material from the estate of Glenn Lord

We’re honored to announce that this year’s Friday night auction will draw on material from the estate of Glenn Lord. As literary executor of the Robert E. Howard estate for nearly three decades, Lord was instrumental in popularizing the works of Howard, and in making reams of previously unpublished Howard material available. It would be difficult to overstate his contributions to Howard’s legacy. Not surprisingly, his own pulp collection was centered around Howard, but also contained many other titles as well. If you’re a fan of pulps – and particularly if you’re a fan of the man who brought us Conan and so many other memorable characters – you won’t want to miss it!

We’ll be posting more details over the coming weeks concerning the pulps, fanzines and other rare material that will be in the auction. For now, we’ll just post the one piece of original art that will be in the auction – Frank Utpatel’s original cover art for the second Robert E. Howard Arkham House collection, “The Dark Man and Others”. The art was a little too large for my scanner, so these images are very slightly cropped, but we’ll post full sized shots later. We’re showing it in two images. The image on the left is Utpatel’s original art, on illustration paper. The image on the right is scanned with the overlay (which contains some image and text) on top of the art.


For Hotel Information/Registration information, visit the link below.

You have several choices to register for this year's convention.

SKY DEVIL: ACE OF DEVILS
By Harold F. Cruickshank


The Sky Devil and his Brood were riders of the hell trail! Nowhere along the Western Front could you find a more feared crew, both in their element or out. 120 Squadron could always be counted on to whip Germany's best Aces, out-scrap entire squadrons of Boche killers, or tackle not one, but two crazed Barons with an Egyptology fetish! But what happens when they find themselves up in a dirigible fighting a fleet of ghost zeppelins, or down in the English Channel battling ferocious deep water beasts, or even behind enemy lines dealing with a crazed Major Petrie? Plenty, and you can read it all here. The prolific Harold F. Cruickshank was a mainstay of Popular Publications’ aviation titles, with a series in each. For Battle Aces he wrote Sky Wolf; For Battle Birds he created Red Eagle; and in Dare-Devil Aces, from 1932 to 1935, he wrote the 29 tales of Sky Devil. This second volume from Age of Aces Books collects half of the run—15 stories in all—including the seminal story where Bill Dawe is rooked out of the command of 120 Squadron!

Stories include
“The Green Devils” – Dare-Devil Aces, July 1932
“Killer’s Drome” – Dare-Devil Aces, November 1932
“Ace of Devils” – Dare-Devil Aces, November 1933

The German Empire has unleashed Hell on Earth! The dead are climbing out of their graves and giant skeletons attack the living. Heads are detonating and soldiers are turning to bronze. But flying to the rescue like an avenging angel is America’s own “Brain Devil,” Captain Philip Strange, the phantom ace of G-2 Intelligence. Whether it’s deadly bridges or killer broadcasts, when the Allies need a miracle they pray for Philip Strange!

THE ART OF THE PULPS
by Doug Ellis, Ed Hulse, and Robert Weinberg
Foreword by F. Paul Wilson

Now available and highly recommended!

A team of experts in each of the ten major Pulp genres, from action Pulps to spicy Pulps and more, chart for the first time the complete history of Pulp magazines–the stories and their writers, the graphics and their artists, and, of course, the publishers, their market, and readers.

Each chapter in the book, which is illustrated with more than 400 examples of the best Pulp graphics (many from the Editors’ collections—among the world’s largest) is organized in a clear and accessible way, starting with an introductory overview of the genre, followed by a selection of the best covers and interior graphics, organized chronologically through the chapter. All images are fully captioned (many are in essence "nutshell" histories in themselves). Two special features in each chapter focus on topics of particular interest (such as extended profiles of Daisy Bacon, Pulp author and editor of Love Story, the hugely successful romance Pulp, and of Harry Steeger, co-founder of Popular Publications in 1930 and originator of the "Shudder Pulp" genre).

With an overall Introduction on "The Birth of the Pulps" by Doug Ellis, and with two additional chapters focusing on the great Pulp writers and the great Pulp artists, The Art of the Pulps covers every aspect of this fascinating genre; it is the first definitive visual history of the Pulps.

Hardcover, 240 pages, $49.99.
Co-editors Doug Ellis and Ed Hulse have jointly signed a limited number of copies Murania Press is pleased to sell for the book’s suggested retail price of $49.99, with free shipping for buyers in the continental United States. A personal inscription can be added if requested; just send us a note at muraniapress@yahoo.com asking for personalization.

To repeat, there is a very limited number of signed copies available, so if you’re interested don’t wait too long to place an order.

MELUSINE
By Maurice Magre
Adapted by Brian Stableford
Cover by Mike Hoffman
 
This volume is the eleventh of a series of twelve dedicated to Magre’s works. Melusine(1941) mingles a number of mini-essays and prose-poems with a continuing first-person narrative that, although clearly fictitious and exceedingly rich in the fantastic, is proffered by an unnamed protagonist who is clearly an alter ego of the author.
 
Mélusine might be Magre’s swan song, and its delicate imaginative flourishes the last gasps of his prolific and fecund imagination. His revision of the classic legend of Mélusine of Lusignan is ingenious and the visionary sequences depicting the protagonist’s communications with nature are vividly effective, and demonstrate that Magre’s poetic gifts had not waned.

Contents:
Mélusine, ou le secret de solitude [Melusine, 1941]
Le Côté d’ombre des âmes [The Dark Side of Souls, 1937]
Révélation des mondes invisibles The Revelation of Invisible Worlds, 1937]

THE BROTHERS OF THE VIRGIN GOLD
By Maurice Magre
Adapted by Brian Stableford
Cover by Mike Hoffman

 This volume is the twelfth and last of a series dedicated to Magre’s works. In the mid-19th century, a number of French folks from the Pyrenees region emigrated to America, seduced by the prospects offered by the colonization of Mexico and inspired with dreams of enrichment by the California Gold Rush. Magre recounts the fates of these emigrants through a set of interconnected stories in The Brothers of the Virgin Gold, published posthumously in 1949,
 
In these pages, you will discover flamboyant, fantastic and often tragic tales of Hugues Borromée, who celebrated mass in “the invisible cathedral,” the descendants of the Bramevaque family, guardians of a Rosicrucian talisman, the naïve Dr. Fazeuille, who visited the Convent of the Dead, Barthélémy Dalbiès, the shoemaker of Saint-Béat, and Thomas Bordes, the pharmacist who had always been unlucky, and many more...

THE NYCTALOPE AND THE TOWER OF BABEL
 THE CROSS OF BLOOD by Jean de La Hire adapted by Jessica Sequeira
 THE TOWER OF BABEL by Emmanuel Gorlier adapted by Michael Shreve
Cover by Ladönn

A friend of Leo Saint-Clair, Jacques d'Hermont, calls for his help because he and his family are slowly dying from of a mysterious disease. The Nyctalope investigates and discovers a new, deadly foe: Armand Logreux d’Albury, the so-called “Master of the Seven Lights,” lurking in the Castle of The Cross of Blood...

Six years later, the Nyctalope crosses paths again with Logreux d’Albury and another of his arch-enemies, Engineer Korridès, while his son, Pierre, is on a perilous expedition in Africa searching for the legendary Tower of Babel… 

Leo Saint-Clair, alias the Nyctalope, was created in 1911 by Jean de La Hire, one of France's most prolific serial writers. Gifted with night vision, hypnotic powers and an artificial heart, Saint-Clair is a fearless hero who battles colorful super-villains.

This book includes an original novel by La Hire penned in 1941, and a new sequel written by Emmanuel Gorlier.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
By Ed Hulse (editor)
Now available!

The Shadow, The Spider, The Avenger, Doc Savage, The Black Bat, The Phantom Detective — these swashbuckling heroes of mid-20th-century pulp fiction all had one thing in common: They fought crime from outside the law, unhindered by red tape and unmindful of such legal niceties as due process. They fought with fists and guns, for the most part hiding their true identities beneath outlandish costume and grotesque disguises.

This collection of essays by distinguished pulp-fiction aficionados chronicles the era of single-character magazines from offbeat angles and with keen insight. The pieces herein analyze key stories and characters while offering rare, behind-the-scenes glimpses of authors and editors at work, crafting and polishing the pulp-paper fever dreams that enthralled millions of young readers during the Great Depression, World War II, and beyond. Ed Hulse, editor of Blood ‘n’ Thunder, the award-winning journal of adventure, mystery and melodrama, has assembled these affectionate essays with loving care and a discerning eye for the high-water marks in this phase of American popular culture.

This third volume of Blood ‘n’ Thunder Presents, like its predecessors, is profusely illustrated with pulp-magazine covers and original artwork.

CITY OF ENDLESS NIGHT (Agent Pendergast series) - Arriving in book stores January 9!
by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child


What begins as a manhunt for the missing daughter of a wealthy tech billionaire becomes something altogether different when the young woman's body is discovered in an abandoned warehouse in Kew Gardens, Queens, the head nowhere to be found. Soon it becomes clear there are at least two killers on the loose--one responsible for the young woman's death, another responsible for the mutilation. A pair of such dastardly killers requires a team of equally talented investigators. Luckily, both Vincent D'Agosta and Special Agent Pendergast are back in town.

D'Agosta hopes that this latest case will distract Pendergast from Constance Green's decision to depart New York for Tibet after the events of THE OBSIDIAN CHAMBER--and provide Pendergast the opportunity to work a case back on his home turf for the first time in years. But neither is prepared to face a team of killers as diabolical as this. It will take all of Pendergast and D'Agosta's intelligence and strength simply to match wits with their latest adversaries--let alone stay alive.

SWORDS AGAINST THE MOON MEN
By Christopher Paul Carey
Cover Art by Chris Peuler and Interior Illustrations by Mark Wheatley
Now available in hardcover!

An all-new science fantasy adventure novel by the acclaimed coauthor of the Ancient Opar series, Christopher Paul Carey 

Hailed by author and science fiction scholar Richard Lupoff as a “masterpiece of science fiction” and a “pioneer work of the modern school of social extrapolation in science fiction,” Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic lunar trilogy—The Moon Maid, The Moon Men, and The Red Hawk—tells the generational tale of humanity’s fight for freedom against alien conquerors from the Moon. The hero, Julian, finds his soul perpetually reincarnated in the bodies of his successive grandsons, fated to confront—down through the centuries—the vicious Kalkars who have subjugated Earth.

The epic saga continues in this novel, Swords Against the Moon Men.

In 2076 AD, Earth has been conquered and humanity brutally enslaved under the cruel tyranny of the Kalkar invaders whose evil was spawned from Va-nah, the Moon’s hollow interior. Julian 7th—descendant of the great hero who led the first expedition to Va-nah and nearly defeated the Kalkars—receives a mysterious transmission from the planet Barsoom.

The desperate plea from the Red Planet swiftly hurls Julian upon a lonely quest into the heart of Va-nah where he teams up with an U-ga princess and a fierce alien quadruped, and launches a daring rescue to save a lost Barsoomian ambassadorial mission. The success of this mission depends on an unlikely alliance with the Warlord of Mars to assail the enemy’s impregnable stronghold.

If Julian fails in this quest, humanity—and the entire solar system—will never escape the iron grip of the Moon Men.

Enjoy this exciting new adventure [Book #6 in The Wild Adventures of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Series]. Available in Hard Cover with a Dust Jacket at ERBurroughs.com and Lulu.com.

New on Famous (and forgotten) Fiction!

December 2017
This month we present for your approval the very first published story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, "The Mystery of the Raymond Mortgage." 
We have tried to put together a "definitive" edition of this early work and hope you enjoy it.  Introduction by Bob Gay.


November 2017
Since the we are in the midst of the holiday season, we thought a Christmas offering might be appreciated, and so we are happy to present a story by
Bret Harte, "How Santa Claus Came to Simpson's Bar," just as it appeared (with a few editorial interpolations) in the March, 1872 issue of The Atlantic Monthly. Introductory notes are by Bob Gay.

October 2017
Just in time for Halloween, we present what is probably the most popular story to appear in Weird Tales, "The Night Wire" by H. F. Arnold.  
Read it at night with the lights turned low...


September 2017
Since we are now in the season of Fall (and not wanting to miss the chance for a pun), this month we present Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's tale of a famous fall, The Adventure of the Final Problem, just as it appeared in the December, 1993 issue of The Strand Magazine, including the illustrations by Sidney Paget. An introduction by Dan Neyer is also included and he makes some interesting points about our current perceptions of Professor Moriarty...
 
Also, if you are new to the site, you might wish to read Dan's biography of Doyle and possibly peruse some of our other Doyle stories.

August 2017
We've added a new Author Collection to FAFF, and are pleased to present The Edmond Hamilton Collection
Like our other Author Collections, our initial offering begins with a biography of Hamilton and we've also included Hamilton's very first story, The Monster God of Mamurath
In the months to come, we will be adding additional Hamilton stories to the collection and will also be adding more early science fiction by names both famous and forgotten.

July 2017
This month, we present "The Jameson Satellite," direct from the pages of the July, 1931 issue of Amazing Stories, along with an introduction by Bob Gay.
Also, we have added another annotated gallery of Bob's Stuff, with even more wonderment from Bob's boxes and shelves.


June 2017
Back after a short hiatus (insert your favorite quote about life here) we present the fourth, and final story of Doyle's Tales of the High Seas, "The Striped Chest." 
Dan Neyer introduces the story and also addresses the unknowns that surround the tale, as Captain Sharkey is nowhere to be found in the narrative. 
All of Doyle's text is there, along with the illustrations by Warwick Goble, just as they appeared in the July 1897 issue of Pearson’s Magazine (UK).

April 2017
This month we present the final tale of Captain Sharkey, "The Voyage of Copley Banks," just as it appeared in the May, 1897 issue of Pearson's Magazine (UK), including the illustrations by Warwick Goble.  Dan Neyer adds a short introduction.
And, just for the completists out there: We do realize that there is a 4th Sharkey tale, but we consider it apocryphal and its true origins are unknown.


March 2017
Captain Sharkey returns in the second of Arthur Conan Doyle's Tales of the High Seas in a tale entitled, "The Two Barques," just as it appeared in the March, 1897 issue of Pearson's Magazine, including the illustrations by Warwick Goble. 
Dan Neyer's introduction is also included as a more modern addition.


February 2017
Pirates...Tall sailing ships...the High Seas...and the villainous buccaneer, Captain Sharkey...all these, and more, are part of the Arthur Conan Doyle series, Tales of the High Seas. 
Starting this month, we begin the series with "The Governor of St. Kitts," just as it appeared in the January, 1897 issue of the British version of Pearson's Magazine, including the illustrations by Warwick Goble. 
Dan Neyer provides the introduction to the story and the series.

January 2017
Concluding our reprinting of the first series of Father Brown stories, we present “The Sign of the Broken Sword” including all the George Gibbs illustrations and an introduction by Dan Neyer.
Next month, prepare to hoist the jib and steer for clear water!

THE GOD GENE: A Novel (The ICE Sequence)  - Now available!
by F. Paul Wilson


Rick Hayden and Laura Fanning of Panacea return to encounter another mindbending scientific scenario in, The God Gene, the new thriller by F. Paul Wilson.

Rick's brother, Keith, a prominent zoologist at NYU, walks out of his office one day and disappears. The only clue they have are his brother's book, which mentions "the God Gene."

A million or so years ago, a gene designated hsa-mir-3998 appeared as if by magic from the junk DNA of the hominids who eventually evolved into Homo sapiens. It became a key player in brain development―specifically creativity―and laymen started calling it "the God Gene." Keith had been tracking this gene through the evolutionary tree, and was excited by an odd blue-eyed primate he brought back from East Africa. But immediately after running the creature's genetic code, he destroyed all the results and vanished.

Rick and Laura's search takes them to an uncharted island in the Mozambique Channel, home of the dapis―blue-eyed primates whose DNA hides a world-shattering secret. In a globe-spanning mixture of science, mystery and adventure reminiscent of Michael Crichton, The God Gene takes you to the edge of evolutionary theory and beyond...way beyond.

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

Now 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.

HALO FOR HIRE: THE COMPLETE PAUL PINE MYSTERIES
By Howard Browne

Now available for pre-order!

“Of all of Raymond Chandler’s followers, the most Chandlerish of them all might have been Howard Browne. His private eye hero, PAUL PINE, is simply one of the great eyes, no matter how inspired by (or derivative of ) Chandler’s Philip Marlowe he might have been. All the Pine books are well worth reading, and A Taste of Ashes (1957) in particular is just a flat-out, stone-cold private eye classic.

Pine is a former investigator for the Illinois State attorney’s office in Chicago who works as a P.I. in Chicago. He’s got the obligatory cynicism, snappy similes and metaphors down pat, though he tends to be a bit more down to earth than Marlowe, and often mocks his own tendencies to moroseness and world-weariness. And let’s face it — Browne was a stronger plotter than Chandler.

In 1985, almost thirty years after Pine’s last appearance, Dennis McMillan published a book The Paper Gun. That volume collected the only previously-published Pine story, “So Dark For April,” plus an incomplete Pine novel that Browne, in the foreword, called “a story complete in itself. But it is not the whole novel.” He states that he had lost interest in the private eye genre, and so the story is only 122 pages in length, too long for a short story, but too short for a novel.’ —adapted from “Paul Pine” by Kevin Burton Smith, www.thrillingdetective.com

HALO FOR HIRE contains all the Paul Pine stories.

HELP I AM BEING HELD PRISONER
Donald E. Westlake
Cover art by Paul Mann


It isn’t easy going to jail for a practical joke. Of course, this particular joke left 20 cars wrecked on the highway and two politicians’ careers in tatters—so jail is where Harold Künt landed. Now he’s just trying to keep a low profile in the Big House. He wants no part of his fellow inmates’ plan to use an escape tunnel to rob two banks. But it’s too late; he’s in it up to his neck. And that neck may just wind up in a noose...

HELP I AM BEING HELD PRISONER is Donald E. Westlake at his funniest and his most ingenious, a rediscovered crime classic from the MWA Grand Master returning to stores for the first time in three decades.

First appearance in bookstores in 30 years
Donald E. Westlake is a multiple Edgar Award winner—and a nominee for the Academy Award!
The wildest caper ever by the master of the heist story

THE LAST STAND
Mickey Spillane
Cover art by Laurel Blechman


A tarnished former cop goes on a crusade to find a politician’s killer and avoid the .45-caliber slug with his name on it. A pilot forced to make an emergency landing in the desert finds himself at the center of a struggle between FBI agents, unsavory fortune hunters, and the local Indian tribe to control a mysterious find that could mean wealth and power—or death. Two substantial new works filled with Spillane’s muscular prose and the gorgeous women and two-fisted action the author was famous for, topped off by an introduction from Max Allan Collins describing the history of these lost manuscripts and his long relationship with the writer who was his mentor, his hero, and for much of the last century the bestselling author in the world.

First publication ever!
Edited and with an introduction by ROAD TO PERDITION author Max Allan Collins
Includes Spillane’s final novel and a bonus Spillane novella that has also never been published anywhere

THE DOUBLE TAKE

Before the television series, 77 SUNSET STRIP, made Stuart Bailey a household name, he starred in four stories (one novel and 3 novelettes). Appearing under our Mystery House banner is the novel which started it all.

Stuart Bailey is a private investigator, of very much the same stripe as Perry Mason of the Erle Stanley Gardner books, and, in common with Mason and others of the same fictional feather, manages to get himself so involved with criminals and garden-variety crooks that soon he becomes the subject of some rather heated investigations himself.

The job he takes in "The Double Take" really leads him over the bumps. In less than a half-day, according to his own account, he is "threatened by an amateur trigger man, conned by a local lovely and pumped by an international beauty."

You can gather from that that all his dealings are not sneering scarfaces and underworld uglies. Actually, maes are his dish-if only he weren't always too not on somebody's trail.

Roy Huggins makes quite a guy of his hard-bitten performer, a hard-drinking, fast-talking customer with a trigger mind.

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.

Full weekend membership to PulpFest 2018 if staying at the DoubleTree: $35 (includes free early-bird shopping)
Full weekend membership to PulpFest 2018 if staying elsewhere: $40 (without early-bird shopping)
Full weekend membership to PulpFest 2018 if staying elsewhere: $70 (with early-bird shopping)

Single-day membership for Friday or Saturday: $20
Single-day membership for Sunday: $10 (available only at the door)
Supporting Membership: $25


Help Choose the 2018 Munsey Award

Every year, PulpFest recognizes the efforts of those who work to keep the pulps alive for this and future generations.
The Munsey Award recognizes an individual who has given of himself or herself for the betterment of the pulp community.
The award is named after Frank A. Munsey, the man who published the first pulp magazine.

Our 2017 Munsey Award winner was Phil Stephensen-Payne.

Nominations for the 2018 Munsey Award are now being accepted.
All members of the pulp community are welcome to nominate someone for this year’s award.
 If you have someone in mind that you feel worthy to receive this prestigious award, please let us know.

All members of the pulp community — excepting past winners of the Munsey, Rusty, or Lamont Awards  — are eligible.
Your nomination can be sent to PulpFest marketing and programming director Mike Chomko at mike@pulpfest.com.
You can also reach Mike at 2217 W. Fairview Street, Allentown, PA 18104-6542.
You will need to provide the person’s name and an explanation describing why that person should be honored.

The deadline for nominations is May 1, 2018.
The recipient of the Munsey Award will be selected through a vote cast by all the living Lamont, Munsey, and Rusty Award winners.
 The 2018 Munsey Award will be presented on Saturday evening, July 28, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry, the host hotel for PulpFest 2018.
The convention will take place over the last weekend in July, beginning on Thursday evening, July 26 and running through Sunday, July 29.

Pulp Adventurecon, February 24, 2018
Universal Palms Hotel, Powerline Road, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Show time: 10am - 5pm; Admission: $5.00

The Floridian Pulp Adventurecon is back! While the northern east coast hibernates, prepare to discover more pulp magazine and golden age comic treasures!

This year, Golden Age grandmaster Allen Bellman joins the show as our special guest. In 1942, Allen began working at Timely Comics (which eventually became Marvel Comics). He contibuted illustrations to several pulps published by Martin Goodman, and inked backgrounds for Syd Shores on Captain America. He penciled and inked The Human Torch, The Patriot, and many others. He created the one-page recurring mystery feature, Let's Play Detective. Later, Allen worked at Lev Gleason Publications before leaving the comic book industry in the 1950s.

Allen will have copies of Timely Confidential: When the Golden Age of Comics was Young, his rollicking memoir of working for Marvel Comics and Lev Gleason Publications. Learn more about his book, published by Bold Venture Press.

Pulp Adventurecon's theme is largely pulp magazines, but also includes golden age comics, big little books, mens adventure pulps, movie memorabilia, and more vintage paper material.

Stab the green button below to reserve your table ($45.00 each). Check out website for more details as they develop ... and sign up for our mailing list and receive regular updates.

Pulp Magazines Project - Now online!

Publishing legends The Black Mask (1920), Weird Tales (1923), and Amazing Stories (1926) are considered so “extremely rare and valuable” that the U.S. Library of Congress houses its collection of 277 issues in Washington, D.C.’s Rare Book and Special Collections Division—along with the personal libraries of Presidents, medieval and Renaissance manuscripts, and one of only three known perfect copies of the Gutenberg Bible in existence. With its latest addition of 4 issues of The Black Mask (Aug. & Sept. 1920; Dec. 1921; and Apr. 1922), the Pulp Magazines Project has made all 3 classic titles available together—for the first time—in high-quality, cover-to-cover digital editions.

Also available at the Pulp Magazines Project, new issues of the iconic “weird menace” pulp, Dime Mystery Magazine (Apr. 1938 and Sept. 1946); Adventure (Jul. 1, 1928; feat. Walt Coburn’s “The Man Who Hated Himself”); Western Story (Jul. 27, 1940); Detective Story (May 1938; feat. Zorro-creator Johnston McCulley’s “Thubway Tham’s Thothial Thecurity”); and histories of both The Black Mask (E.R. Hagemann; UCLA) and Dime Mystery Magazine (Emily Sisler; University of West Florida).



The Pulp Magazines Project is an open-access digital archive dedicated to the study and preservation of one of the twentieth century's most influential literary & artistic forms: the all-fiction pulpwood magazine. The Project also provides information on the history of this important but long neglected medium, along with biographies of pulp authors, artists, and their publishers.

At the heart of the Project's mission is the archive itself. In summer 2011, it began with a modest library of five representative first-generation pulp titles from the early twentieth century. Over time, the archive will expand, new magazines will be digitized, and contextual materials added. Eventually, the archive will feature a broad range of pre-1923 titles, post-1923 titles where copyright has lapsed, and full volume runs of select titles from 1896 to 1946.

The Project is dedicated to fostering ties between communities of collectors, fans, and academics devoted to pulp magazines, and will offer opportunities for research and collaboration to both scholars and enthusiasts alike. We will provide information on upcoming conferences and conventions, and promote new working relationships between academics and the hundreds of pulp fans and collectors beyond the college and university.
