Captain Philip Strange: Strange Squadrons (Volume 7)

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

Stories include:
 ■“A Squadron Will Perish,” – Flying Aces, August 1931
 ■“Port of Missing Pilots,” – Flying Aces, March 1932
 ■“The Fokker Fiend,” – Flying Aces, May 1932

The Jailbird Flight: The Devil Flies High (Volume 2)

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


Stories include:
 ■“The Jailbird Patrol” – Battle Birds, December 1932
 ■“The Cyclone Patrol” – Dare-Devil Aces, February 1933
 ■“The Red Lightning Ace” – Dare-Devil Aces, July 1933

Airship 27 Productions
THE BAY PHANTOM
FEAST OF THE CANNIBAL GUILD

Now available!

Airship 27 Productions, a leader in the New Pulp publishing community, is excited to present the second book in writer Chuck Miller’s series; “The Bay Phantom – Feast of the Cannibal Guild.”
When a shadowy group of criminals start shaking down restaurants in Mobile, Joe Perrone once again dons the cloak and goggles of the Bay Phantom. Shortly thereafter, wealthy young men begin dropping dead without warning. What do these things have in common with a mysterious psychic, a sinister funeral home, and a nationalist movement known as the Transatlantic Patriots Guild?

That is what the Bay Phantom must learn, and he must do it without his trusted aide, Mirabelle Darcy. She is away on a mission of her own; one that necessitates her breaking into the Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary. Thus left to his own devices, can the Phantom thwart the Cannibal Guild and their deadly assassin, the Mummifier? Or will he become their next victim?

“Chuck Miller is one of the most original writers in New Pulp today,” states Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “His storytelling is truly unique and he envisions the most startling characters, both good and bad, ever to grace a pulp thriller. When Miller puts a spin on a tale, you’d best hang for a truly wild ride.”

Once again Chuck Miller offers up a thrilling new adventure set in the Deep South and starring his original pulp hero; The Bay Phantom. This is pulp action with an added spicy kick. Along for the adventure are cover artist Adam Shaw and, debuting for the first time with Airship 27, interior illustrator, Kevin Paul Shaw Broden.

A millionaire playboy with a yen for excitement, young Ken McNally disguises himself as the gray-haired, gold-toothed, jaundiced-looking proprietor of a seedy tattoo parlor in the “tenderloin” district of St. Louis. His unusual occupation frequently brings him into contact with underworld denizens who, willingly or accidentally, embroil him in criminal activities.

Written by William E. Barrett, Needle Mike found himself embroiled in nearly 20 hard-boiled mysteries originally published between 1935 and 1938 in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Contains the following stories: “The Tattooed Corpse,” “The Tattooed Countess,” “The Tattooed Curse” and “The Tattooed Cobra.”

258 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover



Brilliant, decisive, and hard-charging, Deputy Inspector Allhoff was the NYPD’s ace detective until bullets from a mobster’s machine gun robbed him of his legs, his career, and—in the opinion of an associate—his sanity. Yet Allhoff was too good a man to be put out to pasture, so New York’s police commissioner found a way to keep him employed and refer to him such cases as the department couldn’t or wouldn’t handle. Confined to a wheelchair and operating from a seedy tenement flat, Allhoff is assisted by two cops: Battersly, the rookie patrolman whose brief moment of cowardice cost the inspector his legs, and Simmons, the bitter career cop who detests Allhoff but sticks with the embittered cripple to protect his own pension.

Contains the following stories: “The 10:30 to Sing Sing,” “Coffee for a Killer,” “The Corpse That Wasn’t There,” “A Bed for the Body,” “Tell It to Homicide,” “Murder in the Mirror,” “A Leg on Murder,” “You’re the Crime in My Coffee.”

328 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover


The Complete Cases of Peter Kane (The Dime Detective Library)
by Hugh B. Cave
introduction by Bob Byrne

No longer a Boston police officer, hard-boiled drunk Peter Kane made the easy transition to work as a P.I. Though now in private practice, Kane had a knack for cracking cases while constantly inebriated. Collecting the entire series, along with an all-new introduction by Bob Byrne.

Written by Hugh B. Cave, Kane stumbled through nine gin-soaked yarns published between 1934 and 1942 in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Contains the following stories: “The Late Mr. Smythe,” “Hell on Hume Street,” “Bottled in Blonde,” “The Man Who Looked Sick,” “The Screaming Phantom,” “The Brand of Kane,” “Ding Dong Belle,” “The Dead Don’t Swim” and “No Place to Hide.”


365 pages | $24.95 softcover | $34.95 hardcover



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

Contains the following stories: “Hell’s Music,” “City of Corpses,” “Statues of Horror,” “Gallows Ghost,” “Satan’s Hoof,” “The Sinister Embrace” and “Satan’s Sideshow.”


367 pages | $24.95 softcover | $34.95 hardcover


The Complete Cases of Seekay (The Dime Detective Library)
by Paul Ernst
introduction by Will Murray

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

Contains the following stories: “Madame Murder—and The Corpse Brigade,” “The Corpse With The Third Eye,” “Case Of The Smoking Skulls,” “Two Tickets To Hell” and “Widow Of The Talking Head.”


193 pages | $14.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover



From 1933 to 1935, Frederick C. Davis chronicled the cases of Hollywood P.I. firm Secrets, Inc. Led by Clay “Oke” Oakley and assisted by Cherry Morris and Archibald Brixey, Secrets, Inc., investigated some of the weirdest and most ingenious crimes in the long history of Dime Detective Magazine—all centering around the film industry. Volume 2 collects the final five mysteries.

Contains the following stories: “Death on Delivery,” “Tracks of the Turtle,” “Blood from the Parrot,” “The Green Ghoul” and “Doorway to Doom.”

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
Now available!

The latest release from Murania Press is a collection of informative, extensively researched essays on the Westerns of pulp fiction and Saturday-matinee motion pictures from the 20th century’s first half. Most of these pieces initially saw print in BLOOD 'N' THUNDER; a few were originally written for other publications; and one is new to this book. The reprinted essays all have been reedited and expanded, some considerably. Author Ed Hulse examines best-selling authors such as Zane Grey, Max Brand, Walt Coburn, and Clarence E. Mulford; memorable series characters such as Zorro, Hopalong Cassidy, The Lone Ranger, and Whistling Dan Barry; and popular cowboy stars such as Tom Mix, Roy Rogers, William Boyd, Randolph Scott, George O’Brien — to name just a few in each category.

While not a comprehensive narrative history, this book’s 17 essays in their totality cover a long span of time and a great deal of ground. The author has uncovered a wealth of heretofore unreported information on the making of classic Western movies, much of it gleaned from the actors, writers, and directors themselves.

As a bonus the book reprints Stewart Edward White’s outstanding 1919 novella, THE KILLER, twice adapted by Hollywood; the second and best version, a stylish 1932 exercise in “Western Gothic” titled MYSTERY RANCH, is covered by Hulse at length in the 5,100-word essay written specifically to accompany White’s story.

At 286 pages, its 146,000 words accompanied by dozens of seldom-seen cover reproductions and rare movie stills, THE WILD WEST OF FICTION AND FILM is an invaluable addition to the history of American pop culture. It's available at muraniapress.com for $25.00, which includes free shipping to domestic U.S. buyers.

BLOOD 'N' THUNDER PRESENTS: PULPOURRI
By Ed Hulse, Rick Lai, Will Murray, Laurie Powers, Jeffrey Shanks, Dave Smith
Edited by Ed Hulse
Now available!

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As Bond undergoes a post-mission medical examination, he relays the story of his previous mission to the examiner. Each cut, bruise, and broken bone connected to a specific event of the mission. A connection is made between two people with different purposes: one to save lives, the other to take them.

PART THREE: THE GUT—One sauna. Twenty Neo-Nazis. One Bond. James Bond.
This weapons deal won't go according to plan.

PART FOUR: THE HEART—On the run from a lethal antagonist, weaponless and wounded deep in the Highlands, Bond finds solace with a woman who exchanged her job as a doctor and a life in the city for a cottage and solitary life of a writer. Can Bond find a quiet peace unlike he has known before or will his life choices catch up with him?

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

Now available in soft and hard cover editions!

The Thing’s Incredible! is a sweeping revisionist history of the founding of Weird Tales, one of the most influential and entertaining pulp magazines of them all.

Its first two years (1923-24) was a period of tumult and controversy unequalled in the pulps, before or since, an experience so painful to its creators that they immediately banished their memories to secrecy, their code of silence suppressing the story for almost a century. Here at last is the true saga, the unraveling of the many twisted threads which have bound the creation of Weird Tales in mystery.

Who were Henneberger and Lansinger, the co-founders, and what circuitous chain of events brought about their doomed destiny?
How did the first editor, the outspoken and uncontrollable Edwin Baird, become the wild man of the pulps?
What dark secrets lay buried in second editor Farnsworth Wright’s haunted past that he never dared speak of?
What was the significance of the constantly mutating “reorganization” that united two legends, world-famous magician Houdini and horror author H.P. Lovecraft, into a grand nexus of weird?
How did Henneberger lose control of his slow-motion disaster of a magazine?
And how did an all-out war behind the scenes lead to the long peace of the Wright years?

This is the grand story of the challenges in establishing a radical, new magazine in the early 1920s—and not just any magazine, but the immortal Weird Tales.

John Locke is a leading historian of the pulps who has written on magazines famous and obscure. He is co-author (with Doug Ellis and John Gunnison) of the pioneering Adventure House Guide to the Pulps. His writers’ mag series (Pulp Fictioneers, Pulpwood Days) explores the history of the pulps through the experiences of the participants in the industry. He applied the same approach to Weird Tales and discovered a story stranger—and thornier—than he ever imagined.

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


Are you thinking about attending PulpFest 2018?
You’re probably wondering what to expect from this year’s convention.
PulpFest is known for its great programming and the line-up that we’re planning for next year’s convention is shaping up to be one of our best.

2018 marks the centennial of the armistice that ended the First World War.
Also called “The War to End All Wars” and “The Great War,” PulpFest — The Great Convention — will be honoring the 100th anniversary
 of the war’s end by focusing on the so-called “war pulps” of the early twentieth century and the depiction of war in popular culture.

We’ll explore the work of Leonard H. Nason — who wrote about soldiers and war for ADVENTURE and other magazines —
and have presentations on artistic interpretations of war in comic books, pulps, and men’s adventure magazines.
Author and anthologist Don Hutchison will moderate a panel on “Fighting Aces of War Skies: The Pulps Take Flight” and
 Henry G. Franke, III — the editor of THE BURROUGHS BULLETIN — will discuss “Edgar Rice Burroughs and The Great War.”
Also, Robert Gould will talk about his father — John Fleming Gould — the interior artist who illustrated every issue of G-8 AND HIS BATTLE ACES.

We’ll also be celebrating the century mark of Grand Master of Science Fiction Philip José Farmer.
PulpFest and its associated convention — FarmerCon — will be saluting the acclaimed author of such works as ESCAPE FROM LOKI, THE DARK HEART OF TIME, the classic Riverworld series, and more.
Join us for panels and presentations on “World Building and Writing in the Nine Continuity,” “The Dark Heart of Loki: Philip José Farmer Revisits 1918,” and the life and legacy of Philip José Farmer.
We’ll also be showing the French documentary MOI, TARZAN, featuring Farmer, George McWhorter, and Francis Lacassin.

And don’t forget about our Guest of Honor — Joe Lansdale — the author of over forty novels and numerous short stories.
Winner of the Edgar Award, ten Bram Stoker Awards, the Horror Writers Association Lifetime Achievement Award,
the British Fantasy Award, the Inkpot Award for Contributions to Science Fiction and Fantasy, and many other awards,
Joe will be talking with Tony Davis — editor emeritus of THE PULPSTER and winner of the 1999 Lamont Award — on Saturday evening, July 28, in the PulpFest programming room.
Mr. Lansdale will also be available at other times during the convention.

For All Members

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

Full weekend membership to PulpFest 2018 if staying at the DoubleTree: $35 (includes free early-bird shopping)

G-8 and His Battle Aces #19 Audiobook
The Cave-Man Patrol
by Robert J. Hogan

Read by Nick Santa Maria

Now available!

 They called G-8 the Flying Spy. History never recorded his exploits—and for good reason! No one would ever believe World War I was that wild!
 
They were strange creatures — these grayish skinned beings who could see in the darkness like wild cats and who fought only with bows and arrows, yet hundreds of Yanks died beneath their wings! Why did they roam No-Man’s Land in the dead of night... why did they ride war skies on dynamite death wings? G-8 took up their trail grimly, hurtling straight into the deadliest trap ever set for a fighting war eagle!
 
Even though G-8 was the hero of his own adventures, readers also flew along with the Battle Aces for another very significant reason. The villains in each adventure.



Each one of Robert J. Hogan’s 110 G-8 stories is set squarely in World War One, but it wasn’t the war that Hogan’s readers remembered or had heard about. The horrors of combat that G-8 faced were much more monstrous than bullets and mustard gas, outlandishly so. In his very first adventure, G-8 led the Aces against large bats controlled by the German Forces. The enemies they would face after that first outing only grew stranger and more deadly.
 
Zombies took to the skies in later G-8 adventures. Jellyfish like creatures with long, deadly tentacles terrorized the wartime pilots. Even Martians and werewolves creatures got into the act. And some of G-8’s most notable foes even came back for more than one chance at the Aces, but none were as memorable as G-8’s first foe, the insidious Herr Doktor Krueger. As evil as G-8 was righteous, Krueger attempted multiple times to win the war for the Kaiser and rid himself of America’s Master Spy. He succeeded at neither.
 
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a strange nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in The Cave-Man Patrol. Originally published in the April, 1935 issue of G-8 and His Battle Aces magazine.
 
Nick DeGregorio composed the music for the G-8 and His Battle Aces series of audiobooks.

Captain Philip Strange: Strange Squadrons (Volume 7)

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

Stories include:
 ■“A Squadron Will Perish,” – Flying Aces, August 1931
 ■“Port of Missing Pilots,” – Flying Aces, March 1932
 ■“The Fokker Fiend,” – Flying Aces, May 1932
 ■“The Midnight Ace,” – Flying Aces, June 1934

The Jailbird Flight: The Devil Flies High (Volume 2)

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


Stories include:
 ■“The Jailbird Patrol” – Battle Birds, December 1932
 ■“The Cyclone Patrol” – Dare-Devil Aces, February 1933
 ■“The Red Lightning Ace” – Dare-Devil Aces, July 1933
 ■“The Hooded Ace” – Dare-Devil Aces, February 1934
 ■“The Skeleton Ace” – Dare-Devil Aces, November 1934

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

A millionaire playboy with a yen for excitement, young Ken McNally disguises himself as the gray-haired, gold-toothed, jaundiced-looking proprietor of a seedy tattoo parlor in the “tenderloin” district of St. Louis. His unusual occupation frequently brings him into contact with underworld denizens who, willingly or accidentally, embroil him in criminal activities.

Written by William E. Barrett, Needle Mike found himself embroiled in nearly 20 hard-boiled mysteries originally published between 1935 and 1938 in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Contains the following stories: “The Tattooed Corpse,” “The Tattooed Countess,” “The Tattooed Curse” and “The Tattooed Cobra.”

258 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover


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

Brilliant, decisive, and hard-charging, Deputy Inspector Allhoff was the NYPD’s ace detective until bullets from a mobster’s machine gun robbed him of his legs, his career, and—in the opinion of an associate—his sanity. Yet Allhoff was too good a man to be put out to pasture, so New York’s police commissioner found a way to keep him employed and refer to him such cases as the department couldn’t or wouldn’t handle. Confined to a wheelchair and operating from a seedy tenement flat, Allhoff is assisted by two cops: Battersly, the rookie patrolman whose brief moment of cowardice cost the inspector his legs, and Simmons, the bitter career cop who detests Allhoff but sticks with the embittered cripple to protect his own pension.

Contains the following stories: “The 10:30 to Sing Sing,” “Coffee for a Killer,” “The Corpse That Wasn’t There,” “A Bed for the Body,” “Tell It to Homicide,” “Murder in the Mirror,” “A Leg on Murder,” “You’re the Crime in My Coffee.”

328 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover


The Complete Cases of Peter Kane (The Dime Detective Library)
by Hugh B. Cave
introduction by Bob Byrne

No longer a Boston police officer, hard-boiled drunk Peter Kane made the easy transition to work as a P.I. Though now in private practice, Kane had a knack for cracking cases while constantly inebriated. Collecting the entire series, along with an all-new introduction by Bob Byrne.

Written by Hugh B. Cave, Kane stumbled through nine gin-soaked yarns published between 1934 and 1942 in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Contains the following stories: “The Late Mr. Smythe,” “Hell on Hume Street,” “Bottled in Blonde,” “The Man Who Looked Sick,” “The Screaming Phantom,” “The Brand of Kane,” “Ding Dong Belle,” “The Dead Don’t Swim” and “No Place to Hide.”


365 pages | $24.95 softcover | $34.95 hardcover


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

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

Contains the following stories: “Hell’s Music,” “City of Corpses,” “Statues of Horror,” “Gallows Ghost,” “Satan’s Hoof,” “The Sinister Embrace” and “Satan’s Sideshow.”


367 pages | $24.95 softcover | $34.95 hardcover


The Complete Cases of Seekay (The Dime Detective Library)
by Paul Ernst
introduction by Will Murray

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

Contains the following stories: “Madame Murder—and The Corpse Brigade,” “The Corpse With The Third Eye,” “Case Of The Smoking Skulls,” “Two Tickets To Hell” and “Widow Of The Talking Head.”


193 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
Now available!

The latest release from Murania Press is a collection of informative, extensively researched essays on the Westerns of pulp fiction and Saturday-matinee motion pictures from the 20th century’s first half. Most of these pieces initially saw print in BLOOD 'N' THUNDER; a few were originally written for other publications; and one is new to this book. The reprinted essays all have been reedited and expanded, some considerably. Author Ed Hulse examines best-selling authors such as Zane Grey, Max Brand, Walt Coburn, and Clarence E. Mulford; memorable series characters such as Zorro, Hopalong Cassidy, The Lone Ranger, and Whistling Dan Barry; and popular cowboy stars such as Tom Mix, Roy Rogers, William Boyd, Randolph Scott, George O’Brien — to name just a few in each category.

While not a comprehensive narrative history, this book’s 17 essays in their totality cover a long span of time and a great deal of ground. The author has uncovered a wealth of heretofore unreported information on the making of classic Western movies, much of it gleaned from the actors, writers, and directors themselves.

As a bonus the book reprints Stewart Edward White’s outstanding 1919 novella, THE KILLER, twice adapted by Hollywood; the second and best version, a stylish 1932 exercise in “Western Gothic” titled MYSTERY RANCH, is covered by Hulse at length in the 5,100-word essay written specifically to accompany White’s story.

At 286 pages, its 146,000 words accompanied by dozens of seldom-seen cover reproductions and rare movie stills, THE WILD WEST OF FICTION AND FILM is an invaluable addition to the history of American pop culture. It's available at muraniapress.com for $25.00, which includes free shipping to domestic U.S. buyers.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

JAMES BOND 007 - Coming in November!

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

Here's how Dynamite describe the book:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE LONE RANGER - Coming in October!

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

Here's how Dynamite describes the book:

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

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

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

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

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

Now available in soft and hard cover editions!

The Thing’s Incredible! is a sweeping revisionist history of the founding of Weird Tales, one of the most influential and entertaining pulp magazines of them all.

Its first two years (1923-24) was a period of tumult and controversy unequalled in the pulps, before or since, an experience so painful to its creators that they immediately banished their memories to secrecy, their code of silence suppressing the story for almost a century. Here at last is the true saga, the unraveling of the many twisted threads which have bound the creation of Weird Tales in mystery.

Who were Henneberger and Lansinger, the co-founders, and what circuitous chain of events brought about their doomed destiny?
How did the first editor, the outspoken and uncontrollable Edwin Baird, become the wild man of the pulps?
What dark secrets lay buried in second editor Farnsworth Wright’s haunted past that he never dared speak of?
What was the significance of the constantly mutating “reorganization” that united two legends, world-famous magician Houdini and horror author H.P. Lovecraft, into a grand nexus of weird?
How did Henneberger lose control of his slow-motion disaster of a magazine?
And how did an all-out war behind the scenes lead to the long peace of the Wright years?

This is the grand story of the challenges in establishing a radical, new magazine in the early 1920s—and not just any magazine, but the immortal Weird Tales.

John Locke is a leading historian of the pulps who has written on magazines famous and obscure. He is co-author (with Doug Ellis and John Gunnison) of the pioneering Adventure House Guide to the Pulps. His writers’ mag series (Pulp Fictioneers, Pulpwood Days) explores the history of the pulps through the experiences of the participants in the industry. He applied the same approach to Weird Tales and discovered a story stranger—and thornier—than he ever imagined.

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


Are you thinking about attending PulpFest 2018?
You’re probably wondering what to expect from this year’s convention.
PulpFest is known for its great programming and the line-up that we’re planning for next year’s convention is shaping up to be one of our best.

2018 marks the centennial of the armistice that ended the First World War.
Also called “The War to End All Wars” and “The Great War,” PulpFest — The Great Convention — will be honoring the 100th anniversary
 of the war’s end by focusing on the so-called “war pulps” of the early twentieth century and the depiction of war in popular culture.

We’ll explore the work of Leonard H. Nason — who wrote about soldiers and war for ADVENTURE and other magazines —
and have presentations on artistic interpretations of war in comic books, pulps, and men’s adventure magazines.
Author and anthologist Don Hutchison will moderate a panel on “Fighting Aces of War Skies: The Pulps Take Flight” and
 Henry G. Franke, III — the editor of THE BURROUGHS BULLETIN — will discuss “Edgar Rice Burroughs and The Great War.”
Also, Robert Gould will talk about his father — John Fleming Gould — the interior artist who illustrated every issue of G-8 AND HIS BATTLE ACES.

We’ll also be celebrating the century mark of Grand Master of Science Fiction Philip José Farmer.
PulpFest and its associated convention — FarmerCon — will be saluting the acclaimed author of such works as ESCAPE FROM LOKI, THE DARK HEART OF TIME, the classic Riverworld series, and more.
Join us for panels and presentations on “World Building and Writing in the Nine Continuity,” “The Dark Heart of Loki: Philip José Farmer Revisits 1918,” and the life and legacy of Philip José Farmer.
We’ll also be showing the French documentary MOI, TARZAN, featuring Farmer, George McWhorter, and Francis Lacassin.

And don’t forget about our Guest of Honor — Joe Lansdale — the author of over forty novels and numerous short stories.
Winner of the Edgar Award, ten Bram Stoker Awards, the Horror Writers Association Lifetime Achievement Award,
the British Fantasy Award, the Inkpot Award for Contributions to Science Fiction and Fantasy, and many other awards,
Joe will be talking with Tony Davis — editor emeritus of THE PULPSTER and winner of the 1999 Lamont Award — on Saturday evening, July 28, in the PulpFest programming room.
Mr. Lansdale will also be available at other times during the convention.

For All Members

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

Full weekend membership to PulpFest 2018 if staying at the DoubleTree: $35 (includes free early-bird shopping)

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

Read by Nick Santa Maria

Now available!

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

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

Captain Philip Strange: Strange Squadrons (Volume 7)
From his very first adventure, Captain Philip Strange has rooted out only the most bizarre battalions commissioned by Germany in the Great War. When flying coffins circle the air, or severed hands drop from the sky, the call goes out for the Phantom Ace of G-2 Intelligence. For the Allies know that only the so-called “Brain-Devil” and his aides can out-fly the zombie traitors and human bombs, or out-spy fiends like The Mask and the Man with the Iron Claw! This seventh collection of Philip Strange tales by Donald E. Keyhoe includes his very first adventure from 1931, A Squadron Will Perish, along with five other tales of sinister staffels: Port of Missing Pilots, The Fokker Fiend, The Midnight Ace, Squadron from the Grave, and The Mad Squadron.

The Jailbird Flight: The Devil Flies High (Volume 2)
They had all been sentenced to a living death, but rather than wither behind bars they were given the chance to die fighting!

Real men, molded in the harsh fires of life, dishonored perhaps in the eyes of the Army—but men with red blood and courage. Hard fighters, some of them hiding bitter memories, but all of them ready to follow their leader, “Killer” Kirby, down a flaming suicide trail on the most dangerous missions of the Great War! This second volume of Jailbird Flight stories by Donald E. Keyhoe, collects the final five adventures from Popular Publications' Battle Birds and Dare-Devil Aces magazines: The Jailbird Patrol, The Cyclone Patrol, The Red Lightning Ace, The Hooded Ace, and The Skeleton Ace (1934).

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

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

A millionaire playboy with a yen for excitement, young Ken McNally disguises himself as the gray-haired, gold-toothed, jaundiced-looking proprietor of a seedy tattoo parlor in the “tenderloin” district of St. Louis. His unusual occupation frequently brings him into contact with underworld denizens who, willingly or accidentally, embroil him in criminal activities.

Written by William E. Barrett, Needle Mike found himself embroiled in nearly 20 hard-boiled mysteries originally published between 1935 and 1938 in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Contains the following stories: “The Tattooed Corpse,” “The Tattooed Countess,” “The Tattooed Curse” and “The Tattooed Cobra.”

258 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover


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

Brilliant, decisive, and hard-charging, Deputy Inspector Allhoff was the NYPD’s ace detective until bullets from a mobster’s machine gun robbed him of his legs, his career, and—in the opinion of an associate—his sanity. Yet Allhoff was too good a man to be put out to pasture, so New York’s police commissioner found a way to keep him employed and refer to him such cases as the department couldn’t or wouldn’t handle. Confined to a wheelchair and operating from a seedy tenement flat, Allhoff is assisted by two cops: Battersly, the rookie patrolman whose brief moment of cowardice cost the inspector his legs, and Simmons, the bitter career cop who detests Allhoff but sticks with the embittered cripple to protect his own pension.

Contains the following stories: “The 10:30 to Sing Sing,” “Coffee for a Killer,” “The Corpse That Wasn’t There,” “A Bed for the Body,” “Tell It to Homicide,” “Murder in the Mirror,” “A Leg on Murder,” “You’re the Crime in My Coffee.”

The Complete Cases of Peter Kane (The Dime Detective Library)
by Hugh B. Cave
introduction by Bob Byrne

No longer a Boston police officer, hard-boiled drunk Peter Kane made the easy transition to work as a P.I. Though now in private practice, Kane had a knack for cracking cases while constantly inebriated. Collecting the entire series, along with an all-new introduction by Bob Byrne.

Written by Hugh B. Cave, Kane stumbled through nine gin-soaked yarns published between 1934 and 1942 in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Contains the following stories: “The Late Mr. Smythe,” “Hell on Hume Street,” “Bottled in Blonde,” “The Man Who Looked Sick,” “The Screaming Phantom,” “The Brand of Kane,” “Ding Dong Belle,” “The Dead Don’t Swim” and “No Place to Hide.”


365 pages | $24.95 softcover | $34.95 hardcover


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

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

Contains the following stories: “Hell’s Music,” “City of Corpses,” “Statues of Horror,” “Gallows Ghost,” “Satan’s Hoof,” “The Sinister Embrace” and “Satan’s Sideshow.”


367 pages | $24.95 softcover | $34.95 hardcover


The Complete Cases of Seekay (The Dime Detective Library)
by Paul Ernst
introduction by Will Murray

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

Contains the following stories: “Madame Murder—and The Corpse Brigade,” “The Corpse With The Third Eye,” “Case Of The Smoking Skulls,” “Two Tickets To Hell” and “Widow Of The Talking Head.”


193 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
Now available!

The latest release from Murania Press is a collection of informative, extensively researched essays on the Westerns of pulp fiction and Saturday-matinee motion pictures from the 20th century’s first half. Most of these pieces initially saw print in BLOOD 'N' THUNDER; a few were originally written for other publications; and one is new to this book. The reprinted essays all have been reedited and expanded, some considerably. Author Ed Hulse examines best-selling authors such as Zane Grey, Max Brand, Walt Coburn, and Clarence E. Mulford; memorable series characters such as Zorro, Hopalong Cassidy, The Lone Ranger, and Whistling Dan Barry; and popular cowboy stars such as Tom Mix, Roy Rogers, William Boyd, Randolph Scott, George O’Brien — to name just a few in each category.

While not a comprehensive narrative history, this book’s 17 essays in their totality cover a long span of time and a great deal of ground. The author has uncovered a wealth of heretofore unreported information on the making of classic Western movies, much of it gleaned from the actors, writers, and directors themselves.

As a bonus the book reprints Stewart Edward White’s outstanding 1919 novella, THE KILLER, twice adapted by Hollywood; the second and best version, a stylish 1932 exercise in “Western Gothic” titled MYSTERY RANCH, is covered by Hulse at length in the 5,100-word essay written specifically to accompany White’s story.

At 286 pages, its 146,000 words accompanied by dozens of seldom-seen cover reproductions and rare movie stills, THE WILD WEST OF FICTION AND FILM is an invaluable addition to the history of American pop culture. It's available at muraniapress.com for $25.00, which includes free shipping to domestic U.S. buyers.

UNTAMED PELLUCIDAR
By Lee Strong
Illustrated by Douglas Klauba

Now available in hardcover & softcover!

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 !!!

ERB THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT TPB VOLUME 01 - Arriving in comic shops July 18!
(Writer) Mike Wolfer (Art) Giancarlo Carracuzo (Cover) Mike Wolfer

One hundred years ago, ship-builder Bowen Tyler, a handful of British allies, and the crew of the German U-33 submarine were lost at sea, drifting near the Antarctic Circle. What they discovered was something that defied time, and all of known science: the island of Caspak! Hidden inside impregnable rock walls lay a prehistoric world, filled with terrifying creatures, man-eaters from every era of time, and races of savage, murderous primitives from each rung of the evolutionary ladder. Somehow, the island was never again found, and the stories of the survivors of Caspak were considered fantasy. Today, an expedition has been launched by Tyler's great-great-great-granddaughter Abby, a quest to find concrete evidence of Bowen Tyler's adventure. But what she and her research team will uncover is something far deadlier and more shocking than they could ever have imagined, as the modern day explorers find themselves thrust into The Land That Time Forgot!

This graphic novel includes The Land That Time Forgot #1-#3 and The Land That Time Forgot Annual Savage See-ta.

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

Now available in soft and hard cover editions!

The Thing’s Incredible! is a sweeping revisionist history of the founding of Weird Tales, one of the most influential and entertaining pulp magazines of them all.

Its first two years (1923-24) was a period of tumult and controversy unequalled in the pulps, before or since, an experience so painful to its creators that they immediately banished their memories to secrecy, their code of silence suppressing the story for almost a century. Here at last is the true saga, the unraveling of the many twisted threads which have bound the creation of Weird Tales in mystery.

Who were Henneberger and Lansinger, the co-founders, and what circuitous chain of events brought about their doomed destiny?
How did the first editor, the outspoken and uncontrollable Edwin Baird, become the wild man of the pulps?
What dark secrets lay buried in second editor Farnsworth Wright’s haunted past that he never dared speak of?
What was the significance of the constantly mutating “reorganization” that united two legends, world-famous magician Houdini and horror author H.P. Lovecraft, into a grand nexus of weird?
How did Henneberger lose control of his slow-motion disaster of a magazine?
And how did an all-out war behind the scenes lead to the long peace of the Wright years?

This is the grand story of the challenges in establishing a radical, new magazine in the early 1920s—and not just any magazine, but the immortal Weird Tales.

John Locke is a leading historian of the pulps who has written on magazines famous and obscure. He is co-author (with Doug Ellis and John Gunnison) of the pioneering Adventure House Guide to the Pulps. His writers’ mag series (Pulp Fictioneers, Pulpwood Days) explores the history of the pulps through the experiences of the participants in the industry. He applied the same approach to Weird Tales and discovered a story stranger—and thornier—than he ever imagined.

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


Are you thinking about attending PulpFest 2018?
You’re probably wondering what to expect from this year’s convention.
PulpFest is known for its great programming and the line-up that we’re planning for next year’s convention is shaping up to be one of our best.

2018 marks the centennial of the armistice that ended the First World War.
Also called “The War to End All Wars” and “The Great War,” PulpFest — The Great Convention — will be honoring the 100th anniversary
 of the war’s end by focusing on the so-called “war pulps” of the early twentieth century and the depiction of war in popular culture.

We’ll explore the work of Leonard H. Nason — who wrote about soldiers and war for ADVENTURE and other magazines —
and have presentations on artistic interpretations of war in comic books, pulps, and men’s adventure magazines.
Author and anthologist Don Hutchison will moderate a panel on “Fighting Aces of War Skies: The Pulps Take Flight” and
 Henry G. Franke, III — the editor of THE BURROUGHS BULLETIN — will discuss “Edgar Rice Burroughs and The Great War.”
Also, Robert Gould will talk about his father — John Fleming Gould — the interior artist who illustrated every issue of G-8 AND HIS BATTLE ACES.

We’ll also be celebrating the century mark of Grand Master of Science Fiction Philip José Farmer.
PulpFest and its associated convention — FarmerCon — will be saluting the acclaimed author of such works as ESCAPE FROM LOKI, THE DARK HEART OF TIME, the classic Riverworld series, and more.
Join us for panels and presentations on “World Building and Writing in the Nine Continuity,” “The Dark Heart of Loki: Philip José Farmer Revisits 1918,” and the life and legacy of Philip José Farmer.
We’ll also be showing the French documentary MOI, TARZAN, featuring Farmer, George McWhorter, and Francis Lacassin.

And don’t forget about our Guest of Honor — Joe Lansdale — the author of over forty novels and numerous short stories.

Captain Future #21 Audiobook
7 Short Stories
by Edmond Hamilton

Read by Milton Bagby

Now available!

With each Captain Future story, the boundaries of where the hero might go grew, eventually only being limited by imagination.
 
Published from 1940 to 1951, Captain Future stories initially take place in the far flung year of 1990. As the series progressed, Hamilton moved away from pinning the ongoing adventures to a particular time and focusing more on forming continuity, where stories built on one another. This allowed for a freedom of imagination, for Hamilton to tell stories without restrictions. That liberty of creativity translated to the covers of the Captain Future magazine, brilliant colors and eye-catching designs brought to life by three artists, including Earle K. Bergey.
 
Rocket into science fiction adventure and discover new worlds. Ripped from the pages of Startling Stories magazine, and is read with wonder and excitement by Milton Bagby.

Dan Turner, Hollywood Detective Audiobook
March 1943
by Robert Leslie Bellem

Read by Joe Formichella

Now available!

Dan Turner, also known as the Hollywood Detective, was a fictional private detective created by Robert Leslie Bellem. His first appearance was in the second issue of the pulp magazine Spicy Detective, dated June 1934, and he continued to appear regularly in that magazine, retitled Speed Detective in 1943, until its demise in February 1947. He also appeared in Hollywood Detective, which ran from January 1942 to October 1950.
 
Dan Turner was a typical hardboiled private eye, who worked in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles. Most of the stories are set in and around the film studios, and focus on crimes involving people in the movie business – film stars, stuntmen, producers, agents, extras and an endless array of glamorous female starlets. The Dan Turner stories were notorious for their emphasis on sexual content, although this was generally implied rather than described explicitly.
 
A large number of the Dan Turner stories were written by Bellem himself, who had a good inside knowledge of Hollywood having worked as a film extra. The Hollywood Detective magazine also featured a Dan Turner comic strip, drawn by Max Plaisted. All the Dan Turner stories are written in the first person, in a racy, slang-ridden style that gives them a unique flavor. Guns are never guns but roscoes, and they always go ka-chow!. A woman is never simply a woman but a dame, frail, quail, wren or, if particularly attractive, a doll or cutie.



The murders, follow an exact, rigid pattern, almost like the ritual of a bullfight or a Chinese play. Many of the murder scenes from several different Dan Turner mysteries, bear a remarkable similarity. The murder scenes always involve a roscoe which says Ka-chow!, Chow! Chow!, or Wh-r-r-ang! After the body hits the floor, Dan Turner always comments that the victim is "as dead as an iced catfish" or "as dead as vaudeville" or "as dead as a smoked herring". The only other recurring character in the series was his pal, and sometime-rival, Lieutenant Dave Donaldson of the homicide squad, whose chief purpose seemed to be to get the bodies hauled away.
The six stories and two features was originally published in the March, 1943 issue of Dan Turner, Hollywood Detective magazine and is read by Joe Formichella.

Airship 27 Productions
THE ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN GRAVES
By Thomas McNulty

Now available!

Airship 27 Productions is proud to present author Thomas McNulty’s newest full length novel, “The Adventures of Captain Graves.”

Of all the colorful men who sailed the exotic waters of the South Pacific, none was more legendary Captain Elliot Graves. Rogue, pirate, spy, explorer were all titles used in telling of his adventures aboard his ship, The Reaper’s Sythe. Then in 1944, Captain Graves disappeared without a trace, his ship supposedly sinking of the coast of Australia with all hands lost.

Eight years later, reporter Bill Harrison finds him living in Honolulu and manages to persuade Graves to recount the events of his last and greatest adventure. Now for the first time the legendary sea captain will reveal what actually happened on a remote South Sea island that changed his life forever.

“I first met Thomas McNulty at the Windy City Pulp show years ago,” reports Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “At that time he was selling his comprehensive biography of Hollywood swashbuckler, Errol Flynn. We became friends and I later learned he is one of the premier western writers in the country today.”

Though successful at writing westerns, McNulty had always wanted to pen an old fashion pulper inspired by the man whose life he had chronicled, Errol Flynn. From that inspiration was born “The Adventures of Captain Graves.” He approached Fortier with the idea and soon the book was in full production.

Now Thomas McNulty spins a fast paced tale of two-fisted men, beautiful women and lush island paradises where both heaven and hell await. Canadian Ted Hammond provides the gorgeous cover and Ed Catto, a well known marketing personality, donned his own artist cap to do nine black and white interior pieces, all of which was assembled by award winning Art Direct Rob Davis.

“The Adventures of Captain Graves” is a classic pulp adventure delivered by a master storyteller.


Available from Amazon in paperback and on Kindle.

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

A millionaire playboy with a yen for excitement, young Ken McNally disguises himself as the gray-haired, gold-toothed, jaundiced-looking proprietor of a seedy tattoo parlor in the “tenderloin” district of St. Louis. His unusual occupation frequently brings him into contact with underworld denizens who, willingly or accidentally, embroil him in criminal activities.

Written by William E. Barrett, Needle Mike found himself embroiled in nearly 20 hard-boiled mysteries originally published between 1935 and 1938 in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Contains the following stories: “The Tattooed Corpse,” “The Tattooed Countess,” “The Tattooed Curse” and “The Tattooed Cobra.”

258 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover


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

Brilliant, decisive, and hard-charging, Deputy Inspector Allhoff was the NYPD’s ace detective until bullets from a mobster’s machine gun robbed him of his legs, his career, and—in the opinion of an associate—his sanity. Yet Allhoff was too good a man to be put out to pasture, so New York’s police commissioner found a way to keep him employed and refer to him such cases as the department couldn’t or wouldn’t handle. Confined to a wheelchair and operating from a seedy tenement flat, Allhoff is assisted by two cops: Battersly, the rookie patrolman whose brief moment of cowardice cost the inspector his legs, and Simmons, the bitter career cop who detests Allhoff but sticks with the embittered cripple to protect his own pension.

Contains the following stories: “The 10:30 to Sing Sing,” “Coffee for a Killer,” “The Corpse That Wasn’t There,” “A Bed for the Body,” “Tell It to Homicide,” “Murder in the Mirror,” “A Leg on Murder,” “You’re the Crime in My Coffee.”

328 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover


The Complete Cases of Peter Kane (The Dime Detective Library)
by Hugh B. Cave
introduction by Bob Byrne

No longer a Boston police officer, hard-boiled drunk Peter Kane made the easy transition to work as a P.I. Though now in private practice, Kane had a knack for cracking cases while constantly inebriated. Collecting the entire series, along with an all-new introduction by Bob Byrne.

Written by Hugh B. Cave, Kane stumbled through nine gin-soaked yarns published between 1934 and 1942 in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

Contains the following stories: “The Late Mr. Smythe,” “Hell on Hume Street,” “Bottled in Blonde,” “The Man Who Looked Sick,” “The Screaming Phantom,” “The Brand of Kane,” “Ding Dong Belle,” “The Dead Don’t Swim” and “No Place to Hide.”

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

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

Contains the following stories: “Hell’s Music,” “City of Corpses,” “Statues of Horror,” “Gallows Ghost,” “Satan’s Hoof,” “The Sinister Embrace” and “Satan’s Sideshow.”

The Complete Cases of Seekay (The Dime Detective Library)
by Paul Ernst
introduction by Will Murray

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

Contains the following stories: “Madame Murder—and The Corpse Brigade,” “The Corpse With The Third Eye,” “Case Of The Smoking Skulls,” “Two Tickets To Hell” and “Widow Of The Talking Head.”


193 pages | $19.95 softcover | $29.95 hardcover


The Complete Cases of Secrets, Inc., Volume 2 (The Dime Detective Library)
by Frederick C. Davis

From 1933 to 1935, Frederick C. Davis chronicled the cases of Hollywood P.I. firm Secrets, Inc. Led by Clay “Oke” Oakley and assisted by Cherry Morris and Archibald Brixey, Secrets, Inc., investigated some of the weirdest and most ingenious crimes in the long history of Dime Detective Magazine—all centering around the film industry. Volume 2 collects the final five mysteries.

Contains the following stories: “Death on Delivery,” “Tracks of the Turtle,” “Blood from the Parrot,” “The Green Ghoul” and “Doorway to Doom.”

THE IRON MAN & OTHER VISIONARY FANTASIES
by Louis-Sébastien Mercier
Adapted by Brian Stableford
Cover by Phil Cohen
 
The Iron Man is a fascinating cross-section of the works of Louis-Sébastien Mercier (1740-1814), a unique writer whose originality and enterprise has never yet been given the full credit that it deserves.


From an early contribution to the development of the literary vampire to a pair of revealing philosophical spectacles, from a world that seems to be the best of all possible worlds to interplanetary voyages, and the eponymous “Iron Man,” a precursor of superhero fiction, many of Mercier’s visionary fantasies are still fresh and original today, his exploratory zest not having been weighed down by the burden of subsequent sophistication.


We can best appreciate the full effect of the liberation that the device of dreaming gave to his literary imagination, turning him into a genuine precursor of surrealism who created a number of what were to become conventional tropes of supernatural fiction in original ways.

THE LAND OF DELIGHTS: TALES OF ENCHANTMENT
by Charlotte-Rose Caumont de La Force
Adapted by Brian Stableford
Cover by Mike Hoffman

Les Contes de Contes[1] bearing the signature Mademoiselle de ***, was originally printed in Paris in two volumes in July 1697, and reissued in 1707, this time being attributed to Charlotte-Rose Caumont de La Force (1650-1724).

Of all the pioneering writers of contes de fées, La Force is perhaps the one who took the greatest imaginative license from the freedom to make arbitrary inventions and narrative moves. Her tales tell a story that is very different from the historical fantasies built on Perrault’s moralistic tales for children. The morals attached to Mademoiselle de La Force’s tales are certainly not aimed at children. In fact, what distinguishes her tales from those of her most famous contemporaries is their evident moral unease.

By far the most famous of her tales is “Persinette” which was plagiarized by Friedrich Schultz, who retitled it “Rapunzel” (1790), and it was subsequently collected under that title by the Brothers Grimm. That version became the basis for the Disney film Tangled (2010).

All eight stories collected here give evidence of some painful existential wounds that led the author to say of herself, “I have always been deceived, and only found in my entire life one good friend; I have had perfidious and false friends in quantity….”

THE SECRET BUREAU 4: THE MARQUIS DE VULPIANO
by Charles Rabou
Adapted by Nina Cooper.
With an original epilogue by Jean-Marc Lofficier

The Marquis de Lupiano (1858) is the fourth and final volume in a sprawling saga that tells the story of the secret government’s spy network, the Secret Bureau, that intercepts and opens all private mail.

In this tome, we finally discover the hidden origins of the mercurial Marquis de Lupiano and his connection to the accursed Hulet family. The secret master of the various conspiracies, such as the Sleepers’ Club, the Brothers of Death and the Red Brotherhood, now plots to change the course of history by freeing Napoleon from Saint-Helena.


We also learn of the final fate of Gregorio Matiphous, the cunning Maltese who fell in love with Georgiana, the so-called “bloodied girl.” We see how the web of fate that has trapped the Hulets for generations collides with the bandit Rempailleux, who is now the head of the Secret Bureau.
 
Charles Rabou (1803-1871) was one of the founders of the prestigious Revue de Paris and a friend of Honoré de Balzac, whose unfinished novels he completed after the latter’s death. He was also a master of the roman noir (crime novel). The Secret Bureau is an important link between the works of Jules Janin and Frédéric Soulié on the one hand, and Paul Féval and Ponson du Terrail on the other.

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

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.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press


Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
Now available!

The latest release from Murania Press is a collection of informative, extensively researched essays on the Westerns of pulp fiction and Saturday-matinee motion pictures from the 20th century’s first half. Most of these pieces initially saw print in BLOOD 'N' THUNDER; a few were originally written for other publications; and one is new to this book. The reprinted essays all have been reedited and expanded, some considerably. Author Ed Hulse examines best-selling authors such as Zane Grey, Max Brand, Walt Coburn, and Clarence E. Mulford; memorable series characters such as Zorro, Hopalong Cassidy, The Lone Ranger, and Whistling Dan Barry; and popular cowboy stars such as Tom Mix, Roy Rogers, William Boyd, Randolph Scott, George O’Brien — to name just a few in each category.

While not a comprehensive narrative history, this book’s 17 essays in their totality cover a long span of time and a great deal of ground. The author has uncovered a wealth of heretofore unreported information on the making of classic Western movies, much of it gleaned from the actors, writers, and directors themselves.

As a bonus the book reprints Stewart Edward White’s outstanding 1919 novella, THE KILLER, twice adapted by Hollywood; the second and best version, a stylish 1932 exercise in “Western Gothic” titled MYSTERY RANCH, is covered by Hulse at length in the 5,100-word essay written specifically to accompany White’s story.

At 286 pages, its 146,000 words accompanied by dozens of seldom-seen cover reproductions and rare movie stills, THE WILD WEST OF FICTION AND FILM is an invaluable addition to the history of American pop culture. It's available at muraniapress.com for $25.00, which includes free shipping to domestic U.S. buyers.

UNTAMED PELLUCIDAR
By Lee Strong
Illustrated by Douglas Klauba

Now available in hardcover & softcover!

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 !!!

New on Famous (and forgotten) Fiction!

June 2018
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.


May 2018
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.


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.

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

Coming soon & available for pre-order!

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

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

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

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

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.

UNDERSTUDY FOR DEATH
Charles Willeford
Cover art by Paul Mann


AN UNFORGIVABLE CRIME.
AN UNFORGETTABLE NOVEL.


Why would a happily married Florida housewife pick up her husband’s .22 caliber Colt Woodsman semi-automatic pistol and use it to kill her two young children and herself? Cynical newspaper reporter Richard Hudson is assigned to find out—and the assignment will send him down a road of self-discovery in this incisive, no-holds-barred portrait of American marriage in the Mad Men era.

On the 30th anniversary of the death of the masterful novelist the Atlantic Monthly called the "father of Miami crime fiction," Hard Case Crime is proud to present Charles Willeford’s legendary lost novel, unavailable since its original publication by a disreputable paperback house in 1961. One of Willeford’s rarest titles (copies of the original edition sell for hundreds of dollars), Understudy for Death still has the power to disturb, half a century after its debut.

First publication in almost 60 years!
The creator of detective Hoke Moseley and author of books such as Miami Blues and The Woman Chaser, Willeford is widely considered one of the finest crime novelists of the 20th century
Several of Willeford’s novels have been turned into movies and TV shows, most recently the FX pilot Hoke starring Paul Giamatti

CHARLESGATE CONFIDENTIAL
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 at last?

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
Inspired by the unsolved real-life heist of priceless works of art from the Gardner Museum in Boston

THE COUNT OF 9
Erle Stanley Gardner
Cover art by Robert McGinnis


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
Features a new cover painting by legendary paperback and movie poster illustrator Robert McGinnis

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

Now available in soft and hard cover editions!

The Thing’s Incredible! is a sweeping revisionist history of the founding of Weird Tales, one of the most influential and entertaining pulp magazines of them all.

Its first two years (1923-24) was a period of tumult and controversy unequalled in the pulps, before or since, an experience so painful to its creators that they immediately banished their memories to secrecy, their code of silence suppressing the story for almost a century. Here at last is the true saga, the unraveling of the many twisted threads which have bound the creation of Weird Tales in mystery.

Who were Henneberger and Lansinger, the co-founders, and what circuitous chain of events brought about their doomed destiny?
How did the first editor, the outspoken and uncontrollable Edwin Baird, become the wild man of the pulps?
What dark secrets lay buried in second editor Farnsworth Wright’s haunted past that he never dared speak of?
What was the significance of the constantly mutating “reorganization” that united two legends, world-famous magician Houdini and horror author H.P. Lovecraft, into a grand nexus of weird?
How did Henneberger lose control of his slow-motion disaster of a magazine?
And how did an all-out war behind the scenes lead to the long peace of the Wright years?

This is the grand story of the challenges in establishing a radical, new magazine in the early 1920s—and not just any magazine, but the immortal Weird Tales.

John Locke is a leading historian of the pulps who has written on magazines famous and obscure. He is co-author (with Doug Ellis and John Gunnison) of the pioneering Adventure House Guide to the Pulps. His writers’ mag series (Pulp Fictioneers, Pulpwood Days) explores the history of the pulps through the experiences of the participants in the industry. He applied the same approach to Weird Tales and discovered a story stranger—and thornier—than he ever imagined.

Glenn Springer could hardly believe his good luck. After moving to Maine to escape the Boston rat race, he bought a farm, was successful, and became the envy of his neighbors. Then, he fell in love with the beautiful and bewitching Grizelle Beaumarchais. Was his good fortune all due to a locket he found inside the walls of his old farmhouse? And why was Grizelle so interested in it? Could it have anything to do with her being descended from an Indian shaman? Why were there things about herself that Grizelle wasn't telling him? Was his love for her genuine or was he being subtly manipulated? His luck, it seemed, had its price, and as Glenn began to realize, the bill was coming due.

Different Futures: A Collection of Science Fiction Fables by Pierre V. Comtois

In this second volume of science fiction stories by Pierre V. Comtois, the author once more visits Different Futures, but this time ones that are often less optimistic as those in The Way the Future Was. Whereas that previous volume reflected a view of the future that was bright and hopeful and filled with youthful visions of bubble domed cities, moving slidewalks, regular space travel service between the planets, and personal jet packs, the current volume contains stories that are darker, presenting a warning of Different Futures that could be ours should we succumb to many present day ills more reminiscent of George Orwell than Jules Verne. That said, the future need not be all doom and gloom. There may be bright spots too whether on the ocean floor or the barren deserts of Mars. To find out which you think is the most likely, follow the author as he explores alien worlds as well as the possible consequences of technological and societal trends that will surely determine our Different Futures... Pierre V. Comtois has been the editor and publisher of Fungi, the Magazine of Fantasy and Weird Fiction since 1984 and has had a number of books released by numerous publishers including Goat Mother and Others by Chaosium Fiction in 2015, A Well Ordered Universe by Desert Breeze Publishers in 2016, and three volumes dealing with Marvel Comics including Marvel Comics in the 1980s: An Issue by Issue Field Guide to a Pop Culture Phenomenon, Marvel Comics in the 1970s, and Marvel Comics in the 1980s by Twomorrows Pubs in 2015. More recent releases include Scheduled for Extinction, a science fiction novel from Desert Breeze and Talismanic, a horror novel from Rogue Phoenix Press. Comtois has contributed fiction to many small press magazines over the years including various Chaosium Books anthologies. The author has also written a number of other books including novels such as Strange Company and Sometimes a Warm Rain Falls; non-fiction such as Our Lives, Our Fortunes, Our Sacred Honor; and short story collections such as The Way the Future Was and The Portable Pierre V. Comtois. Comtois has also found the time to contribute non-fiction articles to such magazines as World War II, America’s Civil War, Wild West, and Military History, many of which were collected in Hazardous History.

Fantastic Cinema in the Years Before CGI by Pierre V. Comtois

For nearly 100 years, spanning the greater part of cinema history, filmmakers had to make do without the aid of digitization: computer guided cameras, editing, enhanced coloring and tone, and especially for films of the fantastic, computer generated imagery or CGI. In a relatively short time, CGI special effects have come to completely dominate fantastic films eclipsing the “hands on” FX once created by experienced craftsmen. So ubiquitous has CGI become that the process threatens to overwhelm even storytelling to become an end in itself.

Fantastic Cinema in the Years Before CGI is an attempt not only to celebrate those films mostly untainted by the process, but a reaffirmation of movie makers mostly of the previous century, who strived to make their films of the fantastic about something more than FX. Because special effects were often difficult and expensive to create, producers, directors, writers, and actors had work harder at making their stories more believable, their characters more interesting, and most importantly, their ideas more compelling. Elements increasingly lacking in CGI dominated films of the modern era. So dive into this compendium of pre-computer age films, the golden age of fantastic cinema, and find out what you've been missing!

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


Are you thinking about attending PulpFest 2018?
You’re probably wondering what to expect from this year’s convention.
PulpFest is known for its great programming and the line-up that we’re planning for next year’s convention is shaping up to be one of our best.

2018 marks the centennial of the armistice that ended the First World War.
Also called “The War to End All Wars” and “The Great War,” PulpFest — The Great Convention — will be honoring the 100th anniversary
 of the war’s end by focusing on the so-called “war pulps” of the early twentieth century and the depiction of war in popular culture.

We’ll explore the work of Leonard H. Nason — who wrote about soldiers and war for ADVENTURE and other magazines —
and have presentations on artistic interpretations of war in comic books, pulps, and men’s adventure magazines.
Author and anthologist Don Hutchison will moderate a panel on “Fighting Aces of War Skies: The Pulps Take Flight” and
 Henry G. Franke, III — the editor of THE BURROUGHS BULLETIN — will discuss “Edgar Rice Burroughs and The Great War.”
Also, Robert Gould will talk about his father — John Fleming Gould — the interior artist who illustrated every issue of G-8 AND HIS BATTLE ACES.

We’ll also be celebrating the century mark of Grand Master of Science Fiction Philip José Farmer.
PulpFest and its associated convention — FarmerCon — will be saluting the acclaimed author of such works as ESCAPE FROM LOKI, THE DARK HEART OF TIME, the classic Riverworld series, and more.
Join us for panels and presentations on “World Building and Writing in the Nine Continuity,” “The Dark Heart of Loki: Philip José Farmer Revisits 1918,” and the life and legacy of Philip José Farmer.
We’ll also be showing the French documentary MOI, TARZAN, featuring Farmer, George McWhorter, and Francis Lacassin.

And don’t forget about our Guest of Honor — Joe Lansdale — the author of over forty novels and numerous short stories.
Winner of the Edgar Award, ten Bram Stoker Awards, the Horror Writers Association Lifetime Achievement Award,
the British Fantasy Award, the Inkpot Award for Contributions to Science Fiction and Fantasy, and many other awards,
Joe will be talking with Tony Davis — editor emeritus of THE PULPSTER and winner of the 1999 Lamont Award — on Saturday evening, July 28, in the PulpFest programming room.
Mr. Lansdale will also be available at other times during the convention.

The 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.

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 Spider #66 Audiobook
The Silver Death Rain
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge

Read by Nick Santa Maria

Now available!


An epidemic of strange and sudden death had placed New York in the ruthless grip of an Underworld master such as the world had never seen. The Law was powerless against this nighttime Nemesis. But Richard Wentworth, as the Spider, had one more blow to strike before surrendering a shuddering city to the powers of hell!
 
The Spider starred in his own pulp magazine for a wild decade from 1933 to 1943. Seeing rival pulp house Street & Smith breaking sales records with The Shadow Magazine, Popular Publications president Harry Steeger decided to clone him. Legend has it that he was playing tennis and spotted a spider walking across the court. That gave him a catchy yet creepy title. He hired mystery novelist and occultist R. T. M. Scott to write The Spider Strikes! and a sequel, The Wheel of Death. Mysteriously, Scott bowed out of the picture around the time of the first issue, dated October, 1933.


Enter Norvell W. Page, a practitioner of the Edgar Allen Poe tradition in pulps. Writing under the pseudonym of Grant Stockbridge, He remade the Spider into his own psychic twin, often dressing up as the Master of Men when delivering his monthly manuscripts. In a letter to a Spider fan, Page wrote, “Think of me as Wentworth, if you will. The line between us is not too distinct.”
 
A deeply religious man, Norvell W. Page began infusing his latter Spider stories with undercurrents of a strange spiritual quest. A Tibetan monk became a recurring character, issuing prophecies. Psychic phenomenon became a constant theme. Jesus was often evoked.
 
Nick Santa Maria breathes life into the Spider in The Silver Death Rain. Originally published in The Spider magazine, March, 1939.

The Robert E. Howard Guide by Patrice Louinet
Now available!

Presenting the English translation of the award-winning book that introduced a new generation of French fans to the father of sword and sorcery. The Robert E. Howard Guide was born out of years of scholarship, but took its final form after answering the same questions from fans over and over again. In many ways, Howard remains a “famous unknown writer, "the man who single handedly defined modern fantasy, but whose life and works are still known mostly filtered through adaptations, pastiches and gross approximations. Because of those specificities, he is more often than not known for what and who he wasn’t, for sentences he never wrote, or for characters who bear little resemblance—if any—to his original creations. This, in turn, explains how and why this book was conceived. It is sometimes amusing, sometimes sarcastic, but, built on 30 years of Howard scholarship, it is always insightful. A serious work... that tries not to take itself too seriously.
