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

Captain Philip Strange: Strange
Squadrons (Volume 7)
A mental marvel from birth, who used his talents on stage as a
boy, Philip Strange is now known as “The Phantom Ace of G-2″ by the Allies
during WWI. From his very first adventure, Captain Philip Strange has rooted
out only the most bizarre battalions commissioned by Germany in the Great
War. When flying coffins circle the air, or severed hands drop from the
sky, the call goes out for the Phantom Ace of G-2 Intelligence. For the
Allies know that only the so-called “Brain-Devil” and his aides can out-fly
the zombie traitors and human bombs, or out-spy fiends like The Mask and
the Man with the Iron Claw! When World War I gets weird, only America’s
own “Phantom Ace of G-2” has a ghost of a chance against the supernatural
slaughter. Captain Philip Strange in his strangest cases yet from the pages
of Flying Aces magazine!
Take another trip through the imaginings of Donald E. Keyhoe, where the
WWI war skies are filled with giant bats, invisible fire, and beautiful
spies. And where America turns to its own unnatural secret weapon: Captain
Philip Strange. A mental marvel from birth, he was so terrifyingly effective
as the Allies’ top agent that the Germans were offering a king’s ransom for
his death. This fifth volume of weird WWI adventures collects six stories
featuring Germany’s wildest attempts to win the war and Captain Philip Strange’s

The Jailbird Flight: The Devil Flies High (Volume 2)
They had all been sentenced to a living death and all bore The
Convict Brand! The Jailbirds were recruited from the military prisons of
Britain, France, and America. Real men, molded in the harsh fires of life,
dishonored perhaps in the eyes of the Army— but men with red blood and courage.
Hard fighters, some of them hiding bitter memories, but all of them ready
to follow their leader, “Killer” Kirby, down a flaming suicide trail on
the most dangerous missions of the Great War! Rather than wither behind
bars—they were given the chance to die fighting!
This is the second of two exciting volumes of the collected adventures
Donald E. Keyhoe’s Jailbird Flight stories that ran through all three of Popular
Publication’s air anthology titles. Starting in Battle Aces in September
1931 running through the end of it’s initial publication run when they switched
to Battle Birds at the end of 1932 and into Dare-Devil Aces in 1934.
In August of 1931, Donald E. Keyhoe started three long-lived series in
three different aviation magazines: Philip Strange in Flying Aces; The Devil
Dog Squadron in Sky Birds; and The Jailbird Flight in Battle Aces. This volume
features the first seven Jailbird adventures published by Popular Publications
in 1931 and ‘32. A former U.S. Marine pilot, Keyhoe was a prolific contributor
to the pulp magazines, but he is perhaps best remembered for his UFO research
in the Fifties and Sixties.

A millionaire playboy with a yen for excitement,
young Ken McNally disguises himself as the gray-haired, gold-toothed, jaundiced-looking
proprietor of a seedy tattoo parlor in the “tenderloin” district of St.
Louis. His unusual occupation frequently brings him into contact with underworld
denizens who, willingly or accidentally, embroil him in criminal activities.
Written by William E. Barrett, Needle Mike found himself embroiled in
nearly 20 hard-boiled mysteries originally published between 1935 and 1938
in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to
the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.
Contains the following stories: “The Tattooed Corpse,” “The Tattooed Countess,”
“The Tattooed Curse” and “The Tattooed Cobra.”

Brilliant, decisive, and hard-charging, Deputy
Inspector Allhoff was the NYPD’s ace detective until bullets from a mobster’s
machine gun robbed him of his legs, his career, and—in the opinion of an
associate—his sanity. Yet Allhoff was too good a man to be put out to pasture,
so New York’s police commissioner found a way to keep him employed and refer
to him such cases as the department couldn’t or wouldn’t handle. Confined
to a wheelchair and operating from a seedy tenement flat, Allhoff is assisted
by two cops: Battersly, the rookie patrolman whose brief moment of cowardice
cost the inspector his legs, and Simmons, the bitter career cop who detests
Allhoff but sticks with the embittered cripple to protect his own pension.
Contains the following stories: “The 10:30 to Sing Sing,” “Coffee for
a Killer,” “The Corpse That Wasn’t There,” “A Bed for the Body,” “Tell It
to Homicide,” “Murder in the Mirror,” “A Leg on Murder,” “You’re the Crime
in My Coffee.”

Immediately before picking up the reigns of
writing the adventures of the Spider, pulp writer Norvell Page introduced
the weird detective mysteries of another, similar adventure character, Ken
Carter. Running in the hard-boiled pages of the 1930s detective pulps, Ken
Carter battled a myriad of offbeat villains in a series which is clearly
a prototype of Page’s style of novels he soon later wrote of the Spider.
Collecting all seven stories, along with their original illustrations.

The cases he takes up are often bizarre and
grotesque, but no more so than this anonymous private investigator himself:
Seekay’s entire face is covered by a mask of pink celluloid, with only his
“burning black eyes” visible to those who come into contact with him—and
who almost invariably are unnerved by the experience, whether friend or
foe. Collecting the entire series, written by the writer of The Avenger,

by Edmond Haraucourt
Adapted by Brian Stableford
Cover by Adam Tredowski
The story of Prince Dieudonat is a very fine story.
Unfortunately, it is probably nothing but a tissue of lies; many considerations,
in fact, encourage the belief that the gentleman never existed, and that
reason would suffice to explain why no one can say in which country or century
Edmond Haraucourt’s Dieudonat (1906, exp. 1912) fits in the rich French
tradition of the contes merveilleux by endowing its eponymous hero at birth
with the supernatural ability to produce miracles. Upon adulthood, Prince
Dieudonat is forced to leave his kingdom and embarks on a quixotic, picaresque,
and ultimately tragic, journey.
Dieudonat is a work of such tremendous verve and ambition that it
inevitably provokes admiration, and if the nutritive value of some of the
food for thought that it contains is a trifle suspect, it is nevertheless
a phenomenal feast.

THE PALACE OF VENGEANCE & OTHER TALES OF ENCHANTMENT
by Comtesse Henriette-Julie de Murat
Adapted by Brian Stableford
Cover by Mike Hoffman
Henriette-Julie de Castelnau, Comtesse de Murat (1670-1716) was one of
the leading authors of tales of enchantments crafted in the literary salons
peripheral to the court of Louis XIV in the 1690s which ultimately gave birth
to a large sector of modern fantasy fiction.
The Comtesse’s earlier stories are set in the time of the fays, a remote
mythical past, but her later ones take place contemporaneously in countries
that are only separated pseudogeographically from France.
Her stories are remarkable for the imaginative extravagance of their plots;
the superbly surreal depiction of magical civilizations, the extreme trials
to which she subjects her heroes and heroines, caused by jealous rivals
intent on breaking the amorous bond between them, and their often deliberately
This collection presents thirteen novellas and short stories published
between 1698 and 1710. It includes her masterpiece, The Goblins of Kernosy
Castle (1710), a surprisingly sophisticated work for its time and remarkably
modern in its lightly humorous tone and ingenious intricacy.

Kristin Arroyo is a former Marine who served in Iraq. In the personal
effects of her late grandfather – a once famous photographer – she discovers
several unpublished photos of Marilyn Monroe.
With the help of a friend, she decides to put on an exhibition to honor
her grandfather; unfortunately, nothing goes as planned, as a mysterious
organization suddenly starts pursuing her, trying to kill her.
Kristin comes to realize that her fate is mysteriously tied to the photographs
of Marilyn and, if she is to save her life, she must reconstruct the last
days of the Hollywood star and solve the mystery surrounding her death –
but did Marilyn really die on August 5, 1962?
Philippe Ward, a native of Bordeaux, France, is the author of two horror
novels, Artahe and The Song of Montségur (written with Sylvie miller),
rooted in the folklore of Southern France, both published by Black Coat

Blood 'N' Thunder
/ Murania Press
The latest release from Murania Press is a collection of informative,
extensively researched essays on the Westerns of pulp fiction and Saturday-matinee
motion pictures from the 20th century’s first half. Most of these pieces
initially saw print in BLOOD 'N' THUNDER; a few were originally written for
other publications; and one is new to this book. The reprinted essays all
have been reedited and expanded, some considerably. Author Ed Hulse examines
best-selling authors such as Zane Grey, Max Brand, Walt Coburn, and Clarence
E. Mulford; memorable series characters such as Zorro, Hopalong Cassidy,
The Lone Ranger, and Whistling Dan Barry; and popular cowboy stars such as
Tom Mix, Roy Rogers, William Boyd, Randolph Scott, George O’Brien — to name
just a few in each category.
While not a comprehensive narrative history, this book’s 17 essays in
their totality cover a long span of time and a great deal of ground. The
author has uncovered a wealth of heretofore unreported information on the
making of classic Western movies, much of it gleaned from the actors, writers,
and directors themselves.
As a bonus the book reprints Stewart Edward White’s outstanding 1919 novella,
THE KILLER, twice adapted by Hollywood; the second and best version, a stylish
1932 exercise in “Western Gothic” titled MYSTERY RANCH, is covered by Hulse
at length in the 5,100-word essay written specifically to accompany White’s
At 286 pages, its 146,000 words accompanied by dozens of seldom-seen cover

Blood 'N' Thunder
/ Murania Press
by Ed Hulse
Webster's Dictionary describes Potpourri as "a miscellaneous collection."
Murania Press describes Pulpourri as "a miscellaneous collection of well-written,
impeccably researched essays on pulp fiction and how it influenced American
popular culture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries."
This latest volume in the BLOOD 'N' THUNDER PRESENTS series has been assembled
by Ed Hulse, co-editor of Amazon's best-selling THE ART OF THE PULPS, from
contributions by some of today's most distinguished pop-culture scholars
and archeologists. Their lengthy, informative essays are profusely illustrated
with pulp and book covers, interior artwork, rare photographs, and movie
posters. And the works herein are new to this volume, not culled from back
issues of BLOOD 'N' THUNDER.
Hulse leads off the book with a 15,000-word piece on the masterwork of
celebrated mystery writer Mary Roberts Rinehart: THE BAT, which began life
as a 1907 pulp yarn and over the next several decades was revived in books,
movies, and even a hit Broadway play. More importantly, it influenced the
creation of Batman by Bob Kane and Bill Finger.
In other essays: Jeffrey Shanks looks at colonialism in the pulps. Dave
Smith chronicles the exploits of the original Suicide Squad, a trio of hard-charging
FBI agents from the pulp ACE G-MAN STORIES. Laurie Powers profiles Street
& Smith's top female editor, Daisy Bacon, who made LOVE STORY MAGAZINE
the top-selling pulp and ended her career trying to revive the flagging
SHADOW and DOC SAVAGE pulps. Will Murray reveals the early literary efforts
of Robert Maxwell, best known for producing the ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN radio
and TV shows but also a prolific contributor to the notorious girlie pulps
published by DC Comics head honcho Harry Donenfeld. And in a massive (18,000
words), exhaustively researched piece, Rick Lai discusses the use of ancient
religion and mythology in the works of Conan creator Robert E. Howard. This
essay is accompanied by a reprint of Howard's "Black Talons," a weird mystery
from 1933 and one of his most obscure stories.
In the realm of motion pictures adapted from pulp yarns, Ed Hulse documents
the making of HAWK OF THE WILDERNESS, the 1938 Republic serial version of
William L. Chester's classic adventure yarn from BLUE BOOK magazine. And
we present what may be the only surviving photos taken on location during
production of the aborted 1935 film featuring Street & Smith's Western-pulp
hero Pete Rice.

Eric Benton, an idealistic young Midwestern Peace Corps volunteer,
could hardly have known that his mission to help an African village would
embroil him and his colleagues in the political struggles of an emerging
African nation. The people of central Africa likewise had no idea how quickly
their expectations for freedom could be taken away when a ruthless dictator
seizes power. And Tarzan of the Apes had no idea that before long, he would
be compelled, once again, to undertake a long and perilous journey with the
Waziri to save their families.
Set against a backdrop of political unrest in modern Africa, Thomas Zachek's
latest page-turner takes the reader from the dank treasure troves of the
lost city of Opar to turmoil in the city streets as Tarzan battles one of
his most ruthless foes!

Edmond Hamilton returns to our pages, with a tale of a deserted
island and evolution gone amok...it all comes together in "Evolution Island," a story from the March, 1927 issue
of Weird Tales with all the text, the title illustration and a newly written
introduction by Bob Gay.
It has been some time since Baroness Orczy has graced our site
and this month you will find "Juliette A Tale of the Terror," the sixth published
story by the Baroness that is set during the French Revolution.
We have included all the original illustrations by the Baroness's husband,
Montagu Barstow, translations for all archaic words and phrases and an informative
introduction by Dan Neyer.
Many parodies of Sherlock Holmes have been done over the years,
but none had quite the insider's point of view than those done by James M.
Barrie. In "The Late Sherlock Holmes," Barrie not only gives a
twist to the events of "The Adventure of the Final Problem," and the Holmes
canon in general, but also gives an original solution to who really killed
Holmes (remember, it is a parody).
Due to all the in-jokes and references, we've produced an annotated version
of the pastiche and whether you are a seasoned Sherlockian or a neophyte,
we think you will find it enjoyable.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
COLLECTED CAPTAIN FUTURE VOLUME 1 Second Edition

This is Sergeant Saturn letting you rascally rocketeers know that when
you fans of a certain classic cosmic crusader send enough feedback, the Big
Poobah at Haffner Press has little choice but to give you what you want.
To that end, be it known that sometime, sooner than later, you will be
able to add THE COLLECTED CAPTAIN FUTURE, VOLUME ONE to your already stellar
library in a revised 2nd Edition.
What’s the difference between this forthcoming edition and the 2009 First
Printing, you ask? Good question! All we can say at this time is that the
2nd Edition will contain the four Captain Future novels:
“Captain Future and the Space Emperor” (Captain Future, Win ’40)
“Calling Captain Future” (Captain Future, Spr ’40)
“Captain Future’s Challenge” (Captain Future, Sum ’40)
“The Triumph of Captain Future” (Captain Future, Fll ’40)
and we’ll share more information as it becomes available.

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:
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.

The Complete Ivy Frost
by Donald Wandrei
Cover Art by Raymond Swanland
Now available for pre-order and coming soon!
It may come as a surprise to some that Donald Wandrei wrote more
mysteries than all his horror, fantasy, and science fiction tales combined.
This volume collects all eighteen adventures of Wandrei’s ratiocinative
detective I.V. Frost, who is ably assisted by his beautiful and tough female
assistant, Jean Moray. A scientist and inventor, Frost has his own approach
to solving mysteries. Rather than following the usual hard-drinking, trench-coated
style of many of his contemporaries, Frost’s strategy was to mix the logic
of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes with the technology of Lester
Dent’s Doc Savage. In 2000, D.H. Olson edited a volume published by Fedogan
and Bremer collecting the first eight of Frost’s adventures. A second volume
of the remaining 10 tales was promised but never materialized.

Scott Von Doviak
Cover art by Paul Mann
AN INGENIOUS DEBUT NOVEL
INSPIRED BY A REAL UNSOLVED CRIME!
1946: A group of criminals pulls off the heist of the century, stealing
a dozen priceless works of art from a Boston museum. Some of the thieves
are captured, some are killed—but the loot is never found.
Forty years later, a college student finds himself on the trail of the
missing art—and the multi-million-dollar reward.
But three decades after that, the art is still missing, and as his classmates
return to Boston’s notorious Charlesgate Hotel for their big 25th reunion,
dead bodies keep turning up. Will the stolen masterpieces be discovered
A breathtakingly clever, twist-filled narrative that moves from 1946 to
1986 to 2014 and back again—and is steeped in Boston lore, including three
unforgettable seasons of Red Sox baseball—CHARLESGATE CONFIDENTIAL establishes
Scott Von Doviak as a storyteller of the first order, and will leave you
guessing until the final page.
First publication ever!
Virtuoso first novel by film critic Scott Von Doviak unfolds in three
separate time periods: the 1940s, the 1980s, and the present day

Erle Stanley Gardner

A DOUBLE-LOCKED ROOM...
TWO STOLEN JADE IDOLS...
POISONED BLOWGUN DARTS FROM BORNEO...
—CAN EVEN COOL & LAM UNTANGLE THIS MYSTERY?
Erle Stanley Gardner was not just the creator of PERRY MASON—at the time
of his death, he was the best-selling American author of all time, with
hundreds of millions of books in print, including the 29 cases of the brash,
irresistible detective team of Bertha Cool and Donald Lam. Gardner was also
one of the most ingenious plot-spinners in the field, coming up with stunning
twists and reveals—and THE COUNT OF 9 is Gardner at his twistiest.
Hired to protect the treasures of a globe-trotting adventurer, Bertha
and Donald confront an impossible crime: how could anything be smuggled
out of a dinner party when the guests were X-rayed coming and going—least
of all a 6-foot-long blowgun? But that’s nothing compared to the crime they
face next: an impossible murder...
First appearance in bookstores in half a century!
Erle Stanley Gardner remains one of the most popular American authors
of all time

AND THE DARK HEART OF CRIME
By Philip Jose Farmer
One of the most famous heroes in literature is back!
Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, returns with a vengeance in this action-packed
adventure by Philip José Farmer, Hugo Award winner, Nebula Grand
Master, and author of the incredible Riverworld saga.
Tarzan’s beloved mate, Jane, has been kidnapped, and the furious ape-man
will let nothing stand in the way of rescuing her—not even a sinister safari
whose target is Tarzan himself. With fierce Masai trackers leading the chase,
a trio of white hunters are hellbent on capturing the Jungle Lord. But as
the pursuers, and their uncanny half-human tracker, close in from behind,
Tarzan races toward even greater danger ahead.
For the trail leads to a bizarre, long-forgotten land boasting a multitude
of strange and terrifying mysteries: the City Built by God, the Hideous
Hunter, the One to Avoid, and most shocking of all, the Crystal Tree of
Time—whose seductive powers could ultimately spell Tarzan’s doom . . .
Philip José Farmer, a descendant of the actual Greystoke family,
and a recipient of the prestigious Golden Lion Award, bestowed by the Burroughs
Bibliophiles at the 1970 Dum-Dum, is famous for his adventure novels starring
Tarzanic characters. Now, in Tarzan and the Dark Heart of Time, authorized
by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., Farmer lends his vast imagination to the
legend of the Lord of the Apes himself!
In addition, this handsome new edition, which sports a gorgeous painted
cover by well known Burroughs artist Mark Wheatley, a new Foreword by longtime
Burroughs scholar Robert R. Barrett, and a new Introduction by Farmer expert
Win Scott Eckert, will also be released in a trade paperback edition.
Now accepting preorders, the book will be released at FarmerCon 100, held
in conjunction with PulpFest 2018 in Pittsburgh, PA, July 26-29. As always,
readers who preorder and attend FarmerCon/PulpFest can pick up their copies
there—and as an added bonus, get them signed by Wheatley and Eckert! All
other copies will ship immediately after FarmerCon 100.
The trade paperback edition is $20 (plus shipping).
The hardcover edition is $35 (plus shipping).
Or you can preorder them together for only $50—that’s $5 off (plus you’ll
save even more with combined shipping)!
Due out in July 2018, you can preorder the trade

THE THING’S INCREDIBLE!
THE SECRET ORIGINS OF WEIRD TALES
by John Locke
Now available in soft and hard cover editions!
The Thing’s Incredible! is a sweeping revisionist history of the
founding of Weird Tales, one of the most influential and entertaining pulp
magazines of them all.
Its first two years (1923-24) was a period of tumult and controversy unequalled
in the pulps, before or since, an experience so painful to its creators
that they immediately banished their memories to secrecy, their code of
silence suppressing the story for almost a century. Here at last is the
true saga, the unraveling of the many twisted threads which have bound the
creation of Weird Tales in mystery.
Who were Henneberger and Lansinger, the co-founders, and what circuitous
chain of events brought about their doomed destiny?
How did the first editor, the outspoken and uncontrollable Edwin Baird,
become the wild man of the pulps?
What dark secrets lay buried in second editor Farnsworth Wright’s haunted
past that he never dared speak of?
What was the significance of the constantly mutating “reorganization”
that united two legends, world-famous magician Houdini and horror author
H.P. Lovecraft, into a grand nexus of weird?
How did Henneberger lose control of his slow-motion disaster of a magazine?
And how did an all-out war behind the scenes lead to the long peace of
the Wright years?
This is the grand story of the challenges in establishing a radical, new
magazine in the early 1920s—and not just any magazine, but the immortal
John Locke is a leading historian of the pulps who has written on magazines
famous and obscure. He is co-author (with Doug Ellis and John Gunnison)
of the pioneering Adventure House Guide to the Pulps. His writers’ mag series
(Pulp Fictioneers, Pulpwood Days) explores the history of the pulps through
the experiences of the participants in the industry. He applied the same
approach to Weird Tales and discovered a story stranger—and thornier—than
he ever imagined.

2018 Munsey Award
William Lampkin has been named
the winner of the 2018 Munsey Award. Nominated by the general pulp community,
Bill was selected through a vote cast by all the living Lamont, Munsey,
and Rusty Award winners. The award is a fine art print created by David
Saunders and published by Dan Zimmer of The Illustrated Press. It is presented
annually to an individual or institution that has bettered the pulp community.
David Saunders — winner of a special “retro” Lamont Award in 2016 — presented
this year’s award. As Bill was unable to attend PulpFest 2018 due to family
obligations, the award was accepted by Mike Chomko.
Our 2018 Munsey Award winner, William Lampkin, is a freelance writer/editor
and publication designer who has spent much of his work life in the newspaper
field, much like Rambler Murphy (but without the cool nickname and crime-solving).
After freelancing for a number of years, he’s now the public information
officer for a professional licensing board. Like many from his generation,
Bill discovered the pulps through paperback reprints of Edgar Rice Burroughs,
Robert E. Howard, The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Spider. He bought his first
actual pulp in the seventies. Bill runs ThePulp.Net, which he created in
1996, and also writes the Yellowed Perils blog. He founded the Facebook group
Southern Pulpsters in 2015. A resident of Florida, he has designed THE PULPSTER
since 2008, and beginning with its 22nd issue, became editor of the award-winning
program book. The first twenty-one issues of the magazine were edited by
Tony Davis, winner of the 1999 Lamont Award. Tony calls Bill: “One of the
unsung heroes of contemporary pulp fandom.” In late 2013, Bill also began
to design PulpFest‘s print advertisements, badges, and other materials. He
is a member of the PulpFest organizing committee, serving as the convention’s
advertising director and webmaster.
Congratulations to Bill for this most deserved award.
Nominations are now being accepted
for the 2019 Munsey Awards.
If you’d like to make a nomination for this prestigious award, please
send a short explanation concerning your reasons for the nomination to PulpFest
marketing and programming director Mike Chomko at email@example.com.
You can also reach Mike at 2217 W. Fairview Street, Allentown, PA 18104-6542.
Previous winners of the Lamont, Munsey, or Rusty Award are not eligible
for the award. Click here for a list of our previous winners.
The deadline for nominations is April 30, 2019. Please click here for
additional details. Thanks for your help.
PulpFest has received an offer
to merge with a larger comic convention back in Columbus, our original home.
Nothing has been decided but the committee is carefully weighing all options.
This would return Pulpfest to Columbus and possibly increase attendance,
which has been down since the move to Pittsburgh.The response was that fans
of original pulps voiced opposition and "New Pulp" movement members supported
it. That's an oversimplification, based on who stood to speak about the
idea. A move to Labor Day weekend would also be considered, since
that might also increase attendance. None of this is locked in, but
the committee said it has not committed to the Pittsburgh DoubleTree at
Cranberry yet for 2019.

"The Phantom Juggernaut"
by Frederick C. Davis from SECRET AGENT "X", November, 1936
That weirdly spinning little mystery wheel of doom lured Ravenwood, stepson
of mystery, and the despairing Mavis Lattimer, to hideous death beneath
the crushing weight of a speeding car - without a living person in the driver's
seat. And this terror-freighted horror vehicle outmatched Ravenwood's every
strategy, so that his only hope was to use a cryptic parable of the East
to trap the Phantom Juggernaut.

The Spider #68 Audiobook
King of the Fleshless Legion
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
The Spider faces a grim mass murderer who holds sway over Manhattan
— when poisoned drugs paralyze the medical profession and turn New York’s
hospitals into a hell of betrayed human sufferers!
The Spider fought crime draped in black, his identity hidden from those
he sought to stop, the very evil that threatened his city month after month.
And here lies the genius of Norvell W. Page’s Spider. Wentworth had a secret
identity, but hardly anyone was fooled by it! The white-hot relationships
between the cast of characters were mature, even modern by our standards.
This while he battled supercriminals such as the Fly, Iron Man and the Bat-Man.
Authentically captured, the Spider would make a wonderful high-velocity
Once, during a respite in a typical blood-and-screaming-bullets carnage
of urban combat, Police Commissioner Kirkpatrick ticked off a long list
of suspects. Wentworth blurted out this self-revealing truth. “I’m suspicious
of everyone,” he admitted, “even of myself sometimes.” And well he should
be. For Richard Wentworth was an undiagnosed manic-depressive—if not paranoid
schizophrenic—subject to violent mood swings, climbing to unutterable heights
of exultation in one scene, then crashing into the blackest depths of despair
the next. When the Spider-madness came over him, he might pick up his treasured
Stradivarius violin and launch into a night-long serenade to soul-searching.
Or, he might putty up his face, don black hat and cape, go out Spidering.
Nick Santa Maria reads King of the Fleshless Legion with the crackling
intensity you have come to expect of his superb talent. Originally published
in The Spider magazine, May, 1939.

|THE VOID PROTOCOL (The ICE Sequence) - Coming January 8, 2019!
by F. Paul Wilson
In The Void Protocol, New York Times bestselling author F. Paul
Wilson concludes his medical thriller trilogy featuring Rick Hayden and Laura
Fanning as they confront the entities responsible for the supernatural events
of Panacea and The God Gene.
Something sits in a bunker lab buried fifty feet below the grounds of
Lakehurst Naval Air Station.
The product of the Lange-Tür technology confiscated from the Germans
after World War II occupies a chamber of steel-reinforced ballistic glass.
Despite experimentation for nearly three-quarters of a century, no one knows
what it is, but illegal human research reveals what it can do. Humans with
special abilities have been secretly collected―abilities that can only have
come from whatever occupies the underground bunker in Lakehurst.
And so it sits, sequestered on the edge of the New Jersey Pine Barrens,
slowly changing the world.
