by Robert Sidney Bowen

”Stand by for action—three o'clock—map position M-24.”
Dusty Ayres suspected that this message came from the enemy, that it was bait luring him to a trap;

with one of the most destructive weapons yet used by the Blacks—an invisible tornado of red death!

An amazing account of the next great war!

by Robert Sidney Bowen

Now available!

“You will instruct Captain Ayres to proceed to Washington H.Q. by staff train at 2:25.
He is to be provided with escort to station and placed in custody of Staff Sergeant Bolton…” Dusty read this radiogram with amazement.
First H.Q. grounded him, then sent this crazy order.
But the order did not worry the gods of war, for they knew that the very fires of hell itself would sweep across war-torn America
before the devilish plot behind that command could be smashed—before Dusty Ayres could learn the secret of the white death!

THE ASTOUNDING ART OF HUBERT ROGERS
Kickstarter coming in September!


Doug Ellis and Bob Garcia spread the news at Windy City Pulp & Paperback Show this weekend about their new summer project: THE ASTOUNDING ART OF HUBERT ROGERS.

They expect to be ready in September or so to launch a new Kickstarter for it.

Rogers was the premier artist for ASTOUNDING in the 1930s, with covers for the sf classics, SLAN, GREY LENSMAN, FOUNDATION and most of the Robert A. Heinlein novels that appeared in the mag.
If that wasn't enough, his covers also appeared on pulps from ARGOSY to ADVENTURE.

The book is being produced with the cooperation of Rogers' family, giving access to rare material such as photos, sketches, prelims, proofs and original art, which should allow us to produce a book that we hope you'll find astounding!

This is going to be a fantastic project.

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!

Out of the night explodes an engine of unimaginable fury, powered by the drive to accumulate and hoard for the mere sake of possession — a force that draws its strength from the perpetual motion of irreconcilable imperatives engaged in timeless opposition; a beast that should be a myth, but thrives on the nightmares that well out of the unconscious when the unconscious is untethered from myth.  The Mysteriarchs of the Abyss have shackled and enslaved the primordial evil that has guarded their hideous treasure troves for eons — a dragon of gargantuan proportions with more destructive rage than the Great War itself!

Also features the short story "Zohar of the Jungle" by Stuart Hopen.

To the world at large, The Twilight Patrol is a high-flying band of scrappy patriots, ever alert for trouble and always willing to lend a hand. To the sinister foes lurking behind the Axis horizon, they are a force to be reckoned with in the onslaught against freedom. To their fans, The Twilight Patrol is the bravest assortment of adventurers ever brought together to confront the dark forces threatening our mortal realm.

Conan le Cimmérien - La reine de la côte noire - Coming May 2!
Writer Jean-David Morvan
Designer Pierre Alary
Colorist Sedyas


Pursued for killing a judge, Conan found refuge in extremis on a merchant ship. 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 - Coming May 2!
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
An award-winning illustrator, Douglas Klauba was born and raised in Chicago, and is a graduate of the American Academy of Art. Doug's paintings have been included in the art annuals of Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, the Society of Illustrators, and Imagine FX magazine. His painting, "Mercury Jack," exhibited in the Spectrum Show at the Museum of American Illustration and another of his paintings,"Da Vinci's Dream" was awarded Best in Show at the 2005 World Fantasy Convention. A poster of his painting, "Stella 7" can be seen hanging on Howard Wolowitz's bedroom wall on the hit television show, The Big Bang Theory. He was Artist Guest at the 2016 Oum Oum, and previously provided interior art for Tarzan Trilogy..

New on Famous (and forgotten) Fiction!

April 2018
Continuing our reprinting of Edmond Hamilton, we present "The Atomic Conquerors," from the August, 1926 issue of Weird Tales with the original title art and an introduction by Bob Gay.

Also, a bit of humor by the artist Stanley L. Wood, in an article entitled “Authors—from an Artist's Standpoint,” wherein Wood demonstrates that he had not only a very sharp wit, but also a gift for caricature, just as it appeared in the March, 1904 issue of Pearson's Magazine (UK).

March 2018
Since the flu season was a bit rougher than normal this year, we thought it was a good time to resurrect a short novel by Jack London, The Scarlet Plague, which tells of the end of civilization due to a rather nasty disease. 
We have reproduced all the Gordon Grant illustrations, all the text and have thrown in an introduction by Bob Gay that sets the novel in context.


January 2018
A tale of romance and piracy with a twist...The She Fiend (by an unknown author) gives us a female pirate with all the cunning and wiles of the Dragon Lady.  Introduction is by Dan Neyer.

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.

A "LIVING" MUMMY haunts Buff Brewster's every step on the expedition seeking the lost tomb of Egypt's ancient Prince Reth. Fighting time to find the treasure crypt de-signed by Pattak the Tomb Builder, the archaeologists plead with the Egyptian government to postpone con-struction of a dam which will flood the site. But time is not the only enemy of the expedition. For Pattak himself- whose mummy is missing from a London museum-seemingly has returned to life to oppose the violation of his masterwork!

The curator of the museum, determined to prove his the-ory that the "forgotten Pharaoh" was banished from the Valley of Kings, arms Biff with a precious golden scarab to guard him in the Valley of Ghosts.

Biff successfully braves the perils of the mummy's men-ace, only to find himself challenged by worshippers of Thoth, an even older deity of the dead, who supposedly lost the battle of the gods centuries ago.

Trapped by the duplicity of a friend, Biff uses ancient magic to extricate himself and his companions, only to learn that it takes modern miracles to keep the "mummy" from hoarding the treasure for himself alone!

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 #60 Audiobook
The City that Paid to Die
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!


While the Spider borrowed his black slouch hat and cloak from the already thriving Shadow, the rest of the character was significantly different. The Spider stories are all about action, emotional intensity, and pacing. Wentworth himself is strongly emotional, plumbing the thrills of victory as readily, and as deeply, as the depths of despair during his escapades. His long-suffering fiancée, Nita van Sloan, is a worthy character in her own right, though frequently relegated to the traditional role of hostage-bait. As additional exotic spice, Wentworth maintains a Sikh manservant/warrior companion, Ram Singh, as well as chauffeur Ronald Jackson, the sergeant from his old army days. Rounding out the cast of characters is Commissioner of Police Stanley Kirkpatrick, Wentworth’s staunch friend and the Spider’s greatest adversary; Kirkpatrick himself lives in a state of constant angst for fear that duty will one day force him to send his friend to the electric chair as punishment for the Spider’s crimes. And indeed, that fear nearly becomes fact on several occasions.
 
This thrilling Spider audiobook features acclaimed voice talent Nick Santa Maria, who has made the Spider his own! The City that Paid to Die originally published in The Spider magazine, September, 1938.

Eerie Stories eBook
#1 August 1937

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.
 

In 1934 a new type of magazine was born. Known by various names — the shudder pulps, mystery-terror magazines, horror-terror magazines — weird menace is the sub-genre term that has survived today. By 1937, Ace Magazines, the same low-rent publisher who presented readers with Captain Hazzard, Flying Aces and Western Aces, tried to enter the field with Eerie Stories. Unfortunately, it didn't catch on with readers, only lasting one issue before folding. This is that issue. Eerie Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

TARZAN AND THE LION MAN & SYNTHETIC MEN OF MARS Dust-jackets
Now available!


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.
The dark gold on the cover contains bright flecks that simulate the metallic ink on the 1934 edition.
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.

Robert E. Howard Days
June 8-9, 2018!


We'll look forward to seeing you in June with all new panels and guests, a couple of extra-special surprise announcements and all the traditional activities that happen every year at Howard Days.
 

Robert E. Howard House Archaeology Project
New Go Fund Me Project to excavate the Howard House storm cellar!

In an effort to shed more light on Robert E. Howard the man, Project Pride, the owners of the Robert E. Howard House and Museum are partnering with the National Park Service (NPS) and the Southeastern Archaeology Foundation (SEAF) to sponsor an archaeological excavation at the house where Howard grew up, lived and died, and wrote his powerful and influential fiction.

The Howard House was placed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1994 and today it has been restored to its period appearance in the 1930s.  The Robert E. Howard House and Museum is now a tourist destination for countless fans from around the world who make the pilgrim to Cross Plains to see the place where whole worlds were created in the mind of one man. It is also the site for the annual gathering of fans known as Howard Days  on the second weekend in June.

At the Howard Days gathering in 2017, Floyd Carter, Jr. who was a member of the family who purchased the home in 1970, told several Howard scholars and attendees about the presence of a storm cellar behind the house that was now filled in and buried. Carter suggested that there was a lot of material, possibly from the Howards, buried in the cellar that might be recovered if it were excavated. NPS archaeologist and Howard scholar Jeffrey Shanks was present and talked with Mr. Carter at length about his memories of the cellar. This led to discussions with Project Pride about the possibility of a professional archaeological excavation to see what could found. Because the Museum has only a handful of items from the Howards, recovering any artifacts that date from the period when Robert and his family lived there would add significantly to the collection.


The Project:

In January, the Project Pride Board of Directors approved Shanks's proposal for the NPS to uncover and excavate the storm cellar, process and analyze the artifacts recovered, and write the official report. The excavation will also be an educational opportunity for the Cross Plains community and local schools to teach about archaeology and the importance of preserving our shared cultural heritage.

Since the Howard House is on the National Register of Historic Places and one of the missions of the National Park Service is to provide technical assistance to NRHP sites, Shanks was able to secure funding to cover the salary costs for himself and another NPS archaeologist, Thadra Stanton, to carry out the project, including excavation, artifact analysis, and report write-up -- a cost of approximately $20,000. Project Pride and the Cross Plains community will be donating lodging for the archaeological team as well as some supplies and much-needed volunteer labor. Noted Howard experts from The Robert E. Howard Foundation  will be present to assist as well.

The remaining project costs are the travel expenses for the team and salary for an NPS Archaeological Technician to assist Shanks and Stanton. These costs are estimated at $3800. Shanks approached the Southeastern Archaeology Foundation (SEAF), a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation that assists and supports NPS archaeological projects, to assist in securing the remaining needed funds. In order to do so, SEAF has launched this GoFundMe crowd-sourcing campaign to raise those funds.

This is where you come in! If you are fan of Robert E. Howard and his stories or just support archaeology and cultural resource preservation, we can use your financial assistance and generosity. Because SEAF is a 501(c)3 any contribution you make is tax deductible. We are offering several donation levels with different gifts including the official project T-Shirt and copies of the forthcoming archaeological report. You can even join the team in Cross Plains and participate in the excavation!

NOTE: Any funds received in excess of the required amount will be donated to Project Pride to help with their ongoing costs in maintaining the the Robert E. Howard House and Museum.

Who is he? How did he manage to swim through thin air?

These are the questions Pat sets out to answer when her cousin, the famous scientist-adventurer Doc Savage, diagnoses her account as a hallucination caused by altitude sickness.
But when the bronze-skinned girl vanishes, the Man of Bronze is forced to take action.

From the Bighorn Mountains to Devils Tower, Doc Savage and his mighty crew race against time
to avert an impending tragedy created by a nebulous devil in human form who calls himself Mr. Calamity.

Plus a bonus Doc Savage story: The Valley of Eternity.


Softcover edition:  $29.95
Hardcover edition: $49.95
eBook: $6.99

DUSTY AYRES AND HIS BATTLE BIRDS #7: THE WHITE DEATH
by Robert Sidney Bowen

Now available!

“You will instruct Captain Ayres to proceed to Washington H.Q. by staff train at 2:25.
He is to be provided with escort to station and placed in custody of Staff Sergeant Bolton…” Dusty read this radiogram with amazement.
First H.Q. grounded him, then sent this crazy order.
But the order did not worry the gods of war, for they knew that the very fires of hell itself would sweep across war-torn America
before the devilish plot behind that command could be smashed—before Dusty Ayres could learn the secret of the white death!

THE ASTOUNDING ART OF HUBERT ROGERS
Kickstarter coming in September!


Doug Ellis and Bob Garcia spread the news at Windy City Pulp & Paperback Show this weekend about their new summer project: THE ASTOUNDING ART OF HUBERT ROGERS.

They expect to be ready in September or so to launch a new Kickstarter for it.

Rogers was the premier artist for ASTOUNDING in the 1930s, with covers for the sf classics, SLAN, GREY LENSMAN, FOUNDATION and most of the Robert A. Heinlein novels that appeared in the mag.
If that wasn't enough, his covers also appeared on pulps from ARGOSY to ADVENTURE.

The book is being produced with the cooperation of Rogers' family, giving access to rare material such as photos, sketches, prelims, proofs and original art, which should allow us to produce a book that we hope you'll find astounding!

This is going to be a fantastic project.

AVENGERS OF THE MOON
by Allen Steele

Now available!
 
The solar system needs a hero and it's about to get one in an old-fashioned pulp adventure with modern sensibility. It was an age of miracles. It was an era of wonder. It was a time of troubles. It was all these things and more... except there were no heroes. Naturally, one had to be created. Curt Newton has spent most of his life hidden from the rest of humankind, being raised by a robot, an android, and the disembodied brain of a renowned scientist. This unlikely trio of guardians has kept his existence a closely guarded secret since the murder of Curt's parents. Curt's innate curiosity and nose for trouble inadvertently lead him into a plot to destabilize the Solar Coalition and assassinate the president. There's only one way to uncover the evil mastermind — Curt must become Captain Future!

Allen Steele gives us a thrilling piece of sf pulp with Avengers of the Moon.

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!

Out of the night explodes an engine of unimaginable fury, powered by the drive to accumulate and hoard for the mere sake of possession — a force that draws its strength from the perpetual motion of irreconcilable imperatives engaged in timeless opposition; a beast that should be a myth, but thrives on the nightmares that well out of the unconscious when the unconscious is untethered from myth.  The Mysteriarchs of the Abyss have shackled and enslaved the primordial evil that has guarded their hideous treasure troves for eons — a dragon of gargantuan proportions with more destructive rage than the Great War itself!

Also features the short story "Zohar of the Jungle" by Stuart Hopen.

To the world at large, The Twilight Patrol is a high-flying band of scrappy patriots, ever alert for trouble and always willing to lend a hand. To the sinister foes lurking behind the Axis horizon, they are a force to be reckoned with in the onslaught against freedom. To their fans, The Twilight Patrol is the bravest assortment of adventurers ever brought together to confront the dark forces threatening our mortal realm.

Haffner Press

“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.

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 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.
