AVIATION ACES VOLUME 1
Now available!

Since the advent of air combat over Europe during World War One, aviation would become an integral part of shaping the military future of all nations. Thus were born skilled men and women whose love of flying and unerring survival skills would label them as Aviation Aces. 

From the 1920s forward, American pulp publishers gave their readers countless new monthly magazines featuring these amazing fliers from Bucky Barnes to Dusty Ayers and so many more. The stories were filled with high flying heroes willing to challenge the dangers of soaring above the world.

Now Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to take to the wild blue with four brand new, pulse-pounding, cloud-climbing adventures.  From a hidden Japanese base in the South China Sea, to the search for a missing scientist and a top-secret mission in a “rubber” plane, these stories soar boldly into the killer skies. Join writers Gene Moyers, Jeff Fournier, Andy Fix, Robert Ricci and Fred Adams Jr. as they fly straight into thrilling pulp action.

New Zealander Shane Evans provides the cover while Howard Simpson the twelve black and white illustrations, all under the guidance of Award Winning Art Director Rob Davis. “Aviation pulps were a staple of the 30s and 40s,” adds Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “We’re excited to be offering up a new title to add to those old time classics. We think our readers are really going to enjoy Aviation Aces in a big way.”


Available from Amazon in paperback and on Kindle.

In addition to being the most profitable chapter play in the 20-year-history of Republic Pictures—generating more than $1.1 million in worldwide revenue—THE LONE RANGER (1938) set new standards of excellence for motion pictures adapted from other media. It was a genuine phenomenon, securing bookings from major theater circuits and big-city picture palaces at the time when serials played mostly during Saturday matinees in small-town movie houses. Along with their success at box offices, both THE LONE RANGER and its 1939 sequel, THE LONE RANGER RIDES AGAIN, exerted considerable influence on the evolution of this beloved hero from American pop culture.

In this profusely illustrated monograph, film historian Ed Hulse presents a comprehensive behind-the-scenes history of both serials' production. It has been extensively researched from recently uncovered documents buried deep in the files of George W. Trendle, the broadcasting magnate whose Detroit radio station WXYZ was the Lone Ranger's birthplace and home for more than two decades. Hulse has reviewed hundreds of pages—private letters, legal correspondence, inter-office memos, studio production reports, even the original 1937 contract between Trendle and Republic—culling from them all pertinent details relating to the production of both serials and the first's 1940 feature version, HI-YO SILVER. To this material he has added information gleaned from his own interviews of principal participants: co-director William Witney, head writer Barry Shipman, stunt double Yakima Canutt, and cast members Herman Brix, George Letz (Montgomery), and Sammy McKim.

The 94-page monograph sports dozens of illustrations: rare stills, posters, advertisements, lobby cards, and magazine covers.

BEHIND THE MASK can be ordered at www.muraniapress.com.
The $12.50 price includes free shipping to buyers in the domestic United States.

Long the best-selling title in Murania Press history — nearly 2000 copies in print, with copies sold in 23 countries — THE BLOOD 'N' THUNDER GUIDE TO PULP FICTION is now available in a new revised and expanded edition.

This exhaustive overview, which goes into greater detail than most other books covering pulp-magazine history, was originally conceived as a collector's handbook but has been recognized as a valuable reference work for newly minted devotees of rough-paper fiction.
The 2018 edition continues along the same lines while still retaining its appeal to advanced hobbyists.

Along with addressing previous omissions and making editorial corrections, we have added nearly 10,000 words of new copy (recently uncovered facts and additional analysis) to the existing manuscript. 
We've also included more cover reproductions, among them at least a half dozen important first issues left out of the original 2013 edition.

What's more, we have updated the four appendices, which supply carefully compiled lists of mass-market pulp-fiction anthologies, reference books about the pulps, small-press publishers specializing in rough-paper fiction reprints, and a collector's guide to building a comprehensive pulp-magazine collection.  Perhaps most importantly, the book now has a complete index — the lack of which was the only substantive complaint we've ever received about the earlier Guide.

The new material has been added (without significantly increasing the book's page count and list price) by slightly reducing the text's font size, thus getting more words per page. 
We also filled blank pages that previously separated chapters. The 2013 Guide had 414 pages, the 2018 revision has 428.

The revised BLOOD 'N' THUNDER GUIDE TO PULP FICTION, in our opinion, represents a significant improvement on what has already been considered one of the foremost works covering the subject. 
Like its predecessor, the book is priced at $29.95 (postage included to domestic U.S. purchasers) and is available at muraniapress.com. 
Shipping begins during the first week of September.

TO BATTLE BEYOND
by C.J. Henderson
Introduction by Ron Fortier

Now available in softcover and eBook editions!

Three of the Pulp Era's greatest heroes — primary Batman inspiration, The Black Bat; The Domino Lady, the original femme fatale; and H.P. Lovecraft's Inspector Legrasse--band together to battle nightmare creatures and ninjas in one of the wildest adventure novels of all time!

In the opening days of WWII, the free world sat in dread anticipation as the Axis turned its deadly attentions on one country after another. With an ocean to protect her on either side, the United States hopes to be spared participation in the apocalyptic confrontation to come. The Japanese high command settles on a dark and terrible plan, one involving horrors from beyond to cripple the American colossus.

Also: A special introduction by Ron Fortier, "Who the Hell Are These Guys?", and "Only an Hour," a new Black Bat solo adventure by C.J. Henderson!

C.J. Henderson created new adventures for the likes of Kolchak: The Night Stalker; The Phantom, Mr. Moto, Batman, The Punisher, The Spider, Lin Carter's Anton Zarnak; the Avenger and a score of others. Known around the world for his ability to infuse characters with a startling and electric dynamism, New Mystery Magazine said: "If as some argue, the hardboiled private eye mystery story is a literary form on a par with the Japanese haiku or Irish ballad, then Mr. Henderson deserves the mantle of literary master."

MICKEY SPILLANE

Edited by Max Allan Collins & Lynn F. Myers, Jr.

40 fast-moving short-short stories by the creator of Mike Hammer!

Before Mike Hammer, P.I. made his explosive debut in I, the Jury, author Mickey Spillane (1918-2006) toiled in relative obscurity, writing short-short stories as filler material in Golden Age comic books. Their purpose to fulfill a postal requirement, these stories were the literary boot-camp for the future king of hardboiled fiction.

In commemoration of the year-long Spillane centenary, Bold Venture Press is proud to release the newly revised and expanded edition of Primal Spillane: Early Stories 1941 - 1942. This unique anthology, long out-of-print and largely unavailable, returns with additional material never before reprinted — and a newly discovered, previously unpublished story by Spillane.

In this collection, you’ll meet high-flying soldiers, a prospector exploring a Lovecraftian mine-shaft, a light-fingered con artist, an overworked cub reporter, a hapless exterminator, and many others.

Readers have the opportunity to see a master develop his craft. Primal Spillane collects the earliest short stories bylined Mickey Spillane — Each story moves fast, and concludes with the trademark Spillane “socko finish.”

The combined cost of the rare comic books in which these text pieces first appeared today would be more than that of a new Cadillac; but these short stories provide their own memorable rides. Their value as a training ground for the 20th Century's top crime-fiction writer is priceless when compared to the millions of fans across the world entertained by Mickey Spillane's prose.

Introduction by Max Allan Collins, America’s top crime-fiction author, and Lynn F. Myers, Jr.

What October Brings: A Lovecraftian Celebration of Halloween
Now available!

Edited and with an introduction by Doug Draa

Halloween, a time for laughing children in white bedsheets and superhero costumes. A time for chocolate candy, and pumpkins, and Trick-or-Treat.
A time for dark things everything to slink out of the shadows and into our lives, reminding those unlucky few that our charades of Halloween cannot erase the centuries of history and pain behind the facade…

What October Brings celebrates the dark traditions of the autumn rituals, of Halloween and Samhain, in homage to the uniquely fascinating fiction of HP Lovecraft. Masters of the short story offer you a “once in a lifetime” Trick-or-Treat experience…
…perhaps your last experience!

The commissioned cover is by acclaimed Italian painter Daniele Serra.

CLASSIC CRIME FICTION OF THE 1920'S - Coming October 2!
by Leslie S. Klinger, Otto Penzler


A riveting collection of five of the most famous crime novels of the 1920s, presenting anew some of the most admired authors of the era―with insightful annotations by the Edgar-winning anthologist Leslie S. Klinger.

American crime writing was reborn in the 1920s. After years of dominance by British authors, new American writers―with fresh ideas about the detective and the mystery―appeared on the scene and rose to heights of popularity not witnessed since the success of the Sherlock Holmes tales in America. 
Classic American Crime Writing of the 1920s―including House Without a Key, The Benson Murder Case, The Roman Hat Mystery, Red Harvest, and Little Caesar―offers some of the very best of that decade’s writing. Earl Derr Biggers wrote about Charlie Chan, a Chinese-American detective, at a time when racism was rampant. S. S. Van Dine invented Philo Vance, an effete, rich amateur psychologist who flourished while America danced and the stock market rose. The quintessential American detective Ellery Queen leapt onto the stage, to remain popular for fifty years. Dashiell Hammett brings readers another mystery narrated by the Continental Op. W. R. Burnett, created the indelible character of Rico, the first gangster antihero.

Each of the five novels included is presented in its original published form, with extensive historical and cultural annotations and illustrations added by Edgar-winning editor Leslie S. Klinger, allowing the reader to experience the story to its fullest. Klinger's detailed foreword gives an overview of the history of American crime writing from its beginnings in the early years of America to the twentieth century. This gorgeously illustrated volume includes over 100 color and black and white images as well as an introduction by the eminent mystery publisher Otto Penzler.

TARZAN AND THE REVOLUTION
 
By Thomas Zachek
Illustrated by Mike Grell
Now available in softcover!

Eric Benton, an idealistic young Midwestern Peace Corps volunteer, could hardly have known that his mission to help an African village would embroil him and his colleagues in the political struggles of an emerging African nation. The people of central Africa likewise had no idea how quickly their expectations for freedom could be taken away when a ruthless dictator seizes power. And Tarzan of the Apes had no idea that before long, he would be compelled, once again, to undertake a long and perilous journey with the Waziri to save their families.

Set against a backdrop of political unrest in modern Africa, Thomas Zachek's latest page-turner takes the reader from the dank treasure troves of the lost city of Opar to turmoil in the city streets as Tarzan battles one of his most ruthless foes!

New on Famous (and forgotten) Fiction!

September 2018
No fiction this month, but an extremely rare autobiographical sketch of Neil R. Jones called (surprise!),  "An Autobiographical Sketch of Neil R. Jones," reprinted from the January, 1937 issue of Fantasy Magazine. 
Bob Gay pens the introduction.


July 2018
Edmond Hamilton returns to our pages, with a tale of a deserted island and evolution gone amok...it all comes together in "Evolution Island," a story from the March, 1927 issue of Weird Tales with all the text, the title illustration and a newly written introduction by Bob Gay.

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.



Hermes Press: THE PHANTOM COMPLETE DAILIES HC VOLUME 13 1955 - 1956 - Arriving in comic shops October 3!
(Writer) Lee Falk (Art/Cover) Wilson McCoy

The critically acclaimed, best-selling complete reprint of The Phantom continues! Referred to by comic strip historian Maurice Horn as the "granddaddy of all costumed superheroes," The Phantom was created in 1936 by Lee Falk with artwork by Ray Moore. The Phantom set the standard for action, adventure, intrigue, and romance in adventure comic strips and comic books - it has frequently been copied but never equaled. Included in this volume are seven complete continuities, reprinted for the first time in their entirety, "The Slimming of Prince Tagon," "Captain Kidder's Treasure," "Dr Axel and the Witchmen," "Queen Sansamor and the Sixth Man," "The Wisdom of Solomon," "U-Town," and "The Grove of the Sleeping Giant." Strips from this issue are taken directly from King Feature's proofs.

Billed as the Queen of New Pulp Adventure, Vic is a 1920’s heroess who runs into bad guys and cryptids in every adventure. Besides being well educated with degrees in astronomy and mathematics she is the reincarnation of a cave girl. That primitive persona is alive and well and enables Vic with the fearlessness, instincts, senses and ferocity of an apex predator. In Bloody Reprisal, an old enemy ambushes Vic and a friend in reprisal for earlier interference. The attack leaves Vic seeing blood red and she goes after the man to deliver a reprisal of her own.  Enroute, she runs into a creature that has dealt reprisal against a family for 300 years.  Vic picks up some scars and learns something about revenge and forgiveness. The back cover guarantees unpredictable adventure so you can probably look forward to some unexpected twists in the plot. .

James Rollins: CRUCIBLE - Coming January 8!

In the race to save one of their own, Sigma Force must wrestle with the deepest spiritual mysteries of mankind in this mind-expanding adventure from the #1 New York Times bestselling author, told with his trademark blend of cutting edge science, historical mystery, and pulse-pounding action.

Arriving home on Christmas Eve, Commander Gray Pierce discovers his house ransacked, his pregnant lover missing, and his best friend’s wife, Kat, unconscious on the kitchen floor. With no shred of evidence to follow, his one hope to find the woman he loves and his unborn child is Kat, the only witness to what happened. But the injured woman is in a semi-comatose state and cannot speak—until a brilliant neurologist offers a radical approach to "unlock" her mind long enough to ask a few questions.

What Pierce learns from Kat sets Sigma Force on a frantic quest for answers that are connected to mysteries reaching back to the Spanish Inquisition and to one of the most reviled and blood-soaked books in human history—a Medieval text known as the Malleus Maleficarum, the Hammer of Witches. What they uncover hidden deep in the past will reveal a frightening truth in the present and a future on the brink of annihilation, and force them to confront the ultimate question: What does it mean to have a soul?

JULES DE GRANDIN
A RIVAL FROM THE GRAVE: THE COMPLETE TALES OF JULES DE GRANDIN, VOLUME FOUR

by Seabury Quinn
Now shipping!

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

Today the names of H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, August Derleth, and Clark Ashton Smith, all regular contributors to the pulp magazine Weird Tales during the first half of the twentieth century, are recognizable even to casual readers of the bizarre and fantastic. And yet despite being more popular than them all during the golden era of genre pulp fiction, there is another author whose name and work have fallen into obscurity: Seabury Quinn.

Quinn’s short stories were featured in well more than half of Weird Tales’s original publication run. His most famous character, the supernatural French detective Dr. Jules de Grandin, investigated cases involving monsters, devil worshippers, serial killers, and spirits from beyond the grave, often set in the small town of Harrisonville, New Jersey. In de Grandin there are familiar shades of both Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot, and alongside his assistant, Dr. Samuel Trowbridge, de Grandin’s knack for solving mysteries—and his outbursts of peculiar French-isms (grand Dieu!)—captivated readers for nearly three decades.

Collected for the first time in trade editions, The Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin, edited by George Vanderburgh, presents all ninety-three published works featuring the supernatural detective.
Presented in chronological order over five volumes, this is the definitive collection of an iconic pulp hero.

The fourth volume, A Rival from the Grave, will include all the stories from “The Chosen of Vishnu” (1933) to “Incense of Abomination” (1938), as well as an introduction by George Vanderburgh and Robert Weinberg and a foreword by Mike Ashley.

Secret Agent "X" #25 Audiobook
Faceless Fury
by G. T. Fleming-Roberts writing as Brant House

Read by Milton Bagby

Now available!

 


They called Secret Agent “X”, the Man of the Thousand Faces. Armed with his irresistible gas gun, wearing impenetrable disguises, “X” infiltrates the darkest corners of the Underworld to crush all crime czars!
 
From the mysterious private room in a sanitarium, the Faceless Man emerges to spread a terror trail through a metropolis. Secret Agent “X” battles to stop that hideous murder march. The Agent can duplicate any human face...except in this instance...there is no face to duplicate.
 
The enigma of enigmas, Secret Agent “X” has been deputized by a high government official to battle the darkest, most diabolical enemies of America before they sink their poisonous fangs into the nation’s healthy core. Faceless and unsung, “X” infiltrates these threats in a bewildering array of disguises.



Operating out of the supposedly haunted Montgomery Mansion, Secret Agent “X” ventures forth in a bewildering array of false identities to infiltrate the darkest underbelly of the underworld—and destroy it from within. A master investigator of a thousand guises and surprises. The only clue to his true identity is his haunting whistle…..
 
Although Paul Chadwick created Secret Agent “X”, G. T. Fleming-Roberts contributed the most stories to the character’s canon, numbering at least twenty. Known as a mystery/crime writer for most of his career, Fleming-Roberts also contributed to series characters other than “X”. Most notably, Diamondstone the Magician, The Green Ghost, and Jeffrey Wren were crime solvers of a sort that Fleming-Roberts enjoyed creating; magician detectives. This interest in slightly different crime tales probably contributed a great deal to Fleming-Roberts’ work on Secret Agent “X”.
 
Follow the Man of a Thousand Faces as he confronts the menace of Faceless Fury, ripped from the pages of Secret Agent “X” magazine, April 1936 and read with chilling intensity by Milton Bagby.
Performed by Audie Awards winner, voice actor Milton Bagby.

The Purple Invasion story #10 of 13
 
 America’s Defenders wavered at the Divide before those trenches of the Purple Empire hordes — checked by a living wall of crucified children! How could they gain victory without massacring their own? And how could Operator #5 avert this total annihilation of the nation’s young? From behind that human barricade, the mad Emperor’s legion poured out death, secure in its ghastly strategy. There was but one way of overthrowing the invaders, terrible though its cost. Into the jaws of destruction marched the men who knew how to die — then miraculously attack again!
 
“The basic concept of Operator #5 came from Harry Steeger, the publisher, or Rogers Terrill, the editor, or both,” original Operator #5 author Frederick C. Davis recalled. “It was that Operator #5 must save the United States from total destruction in every story, every month. When I was called in to start the series Terrill already had a cover illustration—the White House being blown up. I did the first Operator #5 around this picture.”


From that initial outing, Jimmy Christopher did exactly that in each and every story, rescuing the world from destruction in one and done tales. That is, until Emile Tepperman took over writing duties and thrust Operator #5 into The Purple Invasion. What followed was a serialized 13 chapter pulp war epic like none before or since. From secret agent to rebel soldier, Jimmy Christopher’s job mission did not change.
 
The desperate defenders of America went over the top against the vandal hordes of the Purple Emperor at the Continental Divide — only to find that the murder-maniac tyrant had protected his trenches with a living wall of America’s youth hung upon crosses! It was then that Operator #5 had to find the way to strike at the enemy — and also rescue, from a blood-mad jaguar’s cage, the girl who guarded a nation’s secret!
 
The Army Without a Country is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the September-October 1937 issue of Operator #5 magazine.
 
Performed by Audie Awards winner, voice actor Milton Bagby.

Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
 
The jade-robed Buddhist priest who battled crime as The Green Lama is back! Conceived in 1939 to compete with The Shadow, it was an outlandish concept. While The Shadow possessed the power to cloud men’s minds after his time in the East, The Green Lama relied on other, even weirder, powers — including the ability to become radioactive and electrically shock opponents into submission! He carried a traditional Tibetan scarf, which he employed to bind and befuddle opponents, and possessed a knowledge of vulnerable nerve centers which he put to good use in hand-and-hand combat. Om Mani Padme Hum! The Green Lama knows! The Green Lama returns in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
 
Table of Contents:

 The Eleventh Adventure of The Green Lama
The Case of the Fugitive Fingerprints
by Kendell Foster Crossen writing as Richard Foster
A clever killer leaves a trail of bloody fingerprints that lead exactly nowhere, because the owner apparently materializes only to kill.
 
The Twelfth Adventure of The Green Lama
The Case of the Crooked Cane
by Kendell Foster Crossen writing as Richard Foster
The Green Lama meets a master criminal — one whom nature has endowed with intelligence almost equal to that of the mysterious man of Tibet. But the Lama, undaunted, battles on to reveal a sinister secret.

Drawn, too, are two sinister figures from the past––international master criminals who join forces to harness the power of the pulsing meteorite.

Alone, The Spider confronts his greatest challenge, but he is not alone this time.
For the unholy power of the meteorite draws James Christopher, alias Operator 5, and another government agent from the past, known only as G-8….

Hi, I’m Scout … official canine mascot of Sanctum Books. My master has been so busy making Sanctum Books the best possible pulp reprints that he hasn’t had much time for me lately … and he hasn’t even bought me any new dog toys all year! What’s a dachshund to do? Well, it’s obvious that I’m going to have to buy my own squeaky toys (which I can do online, since on the internet no one knows you’re a dog). However, to afford new toys, I have to raise some quick cash so I’m offering my master’s earliest Sanctum Books volumes at the lowest price ever … HALF OFF list price in special collectors bundles!

For a limited time, you can order the first 28 double-novel volumes of DOC SAVAGE or THE SHADOW for only $181.30 (plus $13.70 shipping within the USA = TOTAL: $195.00). That’s less than $6.48 per book, or just $3.24 per novel with all the original illustrations.

I’m also offering a special SANCTUM SAMPLER bundle that includes all 12 volumes of THE AVENGER (reprinting all 30 original Avenger pulp novels and short stories), CAP FURY #1, NICK CARTER #1-3, PHANTOM DETECTIVE #1 plus all 7 volumes of THE WHISPERER (reprinting all 14 novels from the original 1936-37 run). The 24 books in the SANCTUM SAMPLER are also available for HALF PRICE: just $173.40 (plus $13.60 shipping within USA = TOTAL: $187.00).

Shipping is free if you buy two or more bundles together.

I don’t know how long it’ll be until my master catches on what I’m doing and shuts me down so ORDER SOON!
Send checks or money orders to "Sanctum Books; P.O. Box 761474; San Antonio, TX 78245-1474" or Paypal to <orders@shadowsanctum.com>.
Luckily, he’ll forgive me since I’m cute, and he won’t be able to return the squeaky toys because they’ll have my teeth marks and dog slobber all over ’em!

The Doom Legion by Will Murray

Pulp legend Will Murray has written a new novel that crosses over 3 of the most popular Pulp Heroes of the 1930s:  The Spider, Jimmy Christopher (Operator 5), and G-8.  Will has taken these characters and fleshed them out into more realistic and complex protagonists.  Meanwhile, the prose is smooth and action is non-stop.  This is a real "Wild Adventure" story when a mysterious meteorite lands on Central Park and starts changing people into cosmic zombies.  To complicate matters, 2 supervillains from The Spider and G-8 show up to exploit the new threat.
 
It is a fun story from start to finish.  In the hard cover version there is a Secret Six story that parallels what is happening in the main novel and helps to fill out the back story on the meteor menace.
 
No self respecting Pulp fan will want to miss it!
Will also has sequels in mind which e discusses with me, along with his planned next major novel "Tarzan Conquerors Mars".
We cover lots of other things including new Sherlock Holmes and Cthulhu Mythos stories that Will has coming out.
Don't miss this one!
