The Adventures of the Rio Concho Kid: Bullet For A Virgin!
Now available and FREE through Sunday!

ALL THE PULP WESTERN ROMANCE
AND VIOLENCE OF YESTERYEAR
MADE NEW AGAIN BY MEAN PETE PRESS!

In this first of a new series of spicy pulp western stories (roughly 50 printed pages) written exclusively as ebooks by Peter Brandvold and published by his own Mean Pete Press, the Rio Concho Kid must save a young Mexican girl from the savage intentions of the lusty General Constantine San Gabriel, who forced her into marriage.

On their wedding night, Tomasina De La Cruz sticks a stiletto in the General’s guts and flees his sprawling hacienda with the help of the half-Apache drifter, Johnny Navarro, a.k.a., “the Rio Concho Kid.”

The Kid and Tomasina race toward a rendezvous with the young man to whom Tomasina’s heart really belongs. In so doing, Tomasina and the Kid must avoid a deadly trap set by the man whom the dishonored General hired to bring his young bride back so he could have her tortured and gunned-down by firing squad.

That man is the infamous, deadly bounty killer known only as El Leproso, the Leper!

Can the Kid prove victorious over his fiercest enemy and avoid falling in love with Tomasina, who is as beguiling as she is beautiful but who also harbors a bizarre, bone-chilling secret?





They were STRANGE ENEMIES! Once they were just two young lovers, pledging their devotion in a Mecklenberg garden. Now they are reluctant rivals enmeshed in the biggest conflict the world has ever seen. While the Great War had forged him into the so-called Brain-Devil, America’s top agent, she had become the famous Fraulein Doktor, Germany’s most alluring and elusive spy. When love and loyalty collide in eight epic tales of WWI aviation and intrigue, the bullets—and the sparks—are going  to fly.

Captain Kirby, the impetuous leader of the great trio flew point with little mild-eyed “Shorty” Carn and lanky Travis, the eldest and wisest, filling out the “V” formation. With their customary battle cry, “Let’s go!”—they’re off on another dangerous mission in perilous skies!

From the pages of Popular Publications’ air war pulp magazines, author Ralph Oppenheim brings us four more unforgettable adventures of this reckless trio from 1932 and 1933:
The Invisible Circle, The Dynamite Flight, The Thunderbolt Ace, and The Iron Mask Patrol.

THE BAT IS BACK!

Airship 27 Productions
is super thrilled to announce the release of BLACK BAT MYSTERY, Volume Two. This is the second in their anthology series featuring all brand new adventures of one of pulpdom’s most loved heroes, the Black Bat!

Crusading Attorney Anthony Quinn believed his career was over when a criminal threw acid into his face blinding him. Months later, desperate to regain his sight, Quinn underwent a unique transplant operation which gave him the eyes of a slain lawman. Not only did the procedure work, but it also gave Quinn the ability to see in the dark.  Using this fantastic gift, he created the Black Bat, a justice seeking vigilante able to battle those villains beyond the reach of the law. Aided by his team of loyal crime-fighters, Carol Baldwin, Silk Kerby and Butch O’Leary, the Black Bat is once again on the prowl, his target, the depraved and evil denizens of his beloved city.

“This new collection of stories are so much fun,” stated Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “We knew after the success of Volume One, we needed to really find other unique and original stories that our readers would appreciate.”  New pulp writers, Aaron Smith, Joshua Reynolds, Jim Beard and Frank Byrns offer up a deadly quartet of fast pace action thrills.  There are traditional pulp themed plots that pit the Black Bat against super human Nazis monsters and mysterious aircrafts terrorizing a small town.  But at the same time there is Frank Byrn’s yarn about corrupt politicians involved with Major League Baseball.  “The idea of using a 1930s baseball background for a Black Bat adventure was extremely exciting for us,” Fortier continued.  “And then there’s Reynolds story that has him teaming up with another classic pulp legend, Jim Anthony the Super Detective.  Now who doesn’t love a good pulp team-up?”


The book features a stunning cover by Ingrid Hardy and Rob Davis based on Byrn’s story and has gorgeous interior illustrations by Andres Labrada.  BLACK BAT MYSTERY Vol. Two is another great pulp collection from the high flying
Airship 27 Productions you won’t want to miss.

Best known for his thrilling tales of Dr. Fu Manchu, author Sax Rohmer also penned the adventures of the resourceful Major Bernard de Treville, known better as "The Crime Magnet," a roving adventurer who encounters intrigue in every corner of the globe. With his companion, Digger, he follows in the footsteps of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.

Accompanied by an all-new introduction by Will Murray, historian of popular literature, this is the most significant Sax Rohmer collection in decades. Authorized by the Rohmer estate.

Clive Cussler: THE TOMBS - Arriving in book stores September 4!
With Thomas Perry

Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are intrigued when an archaeologist friend requests their help excavating a top secret historical site.  What they find will set them on a hunt for a prize greater than they could ever imagine.  The clues point to the hidden tomb of Attila the Hun, the High King who was reportedly buried with a vast fortune of gold and jewels and plunder . . . a bounty that has never been found.  As they follow the trail through Hungary, Italy, France, Russia, and Kazakhstan—a trail that they discover leads them not to one tomb, but five—the Fargos will find themselves pitted against a thieving group of amateur treasure hunters, a cunning Russian businessman, and a ruthless Hungarian who claims direct descent from Attila himself . . . and will stop at nothing to claim the tombs’ riches as his own.

McFarland Publishing
Anti-Foreign Imagery in American Pulps and Comic Books, 1920-1960
by Nathan Vernon Madison
Coming this Fall!

This book’s purpose is to demonstrate, via the examination of popular youth literature (primarily pulp magazines and comic books) from the 1920s through to the 1950s, that the stories therein drew their definitions of heroism and villainy from an overarching, nativist fear of outsiders that had existed before the Great War, but intensified afterwards. These depictions were transferred to America’s "new" enemies both following the United States’ entry into the Second World War as well as during the early stages of the Cold War. This transference of nativist imagery displays a growing emphasis on ideological, as opposed to racial or ethnic, differences found in anti-foreign narratives, both showing early signs of modern American multiculturalism and indicating that pure racism was not the sole reason for the appearance of nativist rhetoric in popular literature. The process of change in America’s nativist sentiments, so virulent after the First World War, are explained by the popular, inexpensive escapism of the time, the pulp magazines and comic books of the early to mid-twentieth century.

Captain Philip Strange: Strange Enemies by Donald E. Keyhoe

They were STRANGE ENEMIES! Once they were just two young lovers, pledging their devotion in a Mecklenberg garden. Now they are reluctant rivals enmeshed in the biggest conflict the world has ever seen. While the Great War had forged him into the so-called Brain-Devil, America’s top agent, she had become the famous Fraulein Doktor, Germany’s most alluring and elusive spy. When love and loyalty collide in eight epic tales of WWI aviation and intrigue, the bullets—and the sparks—are going  to fly.

Age of Aces
Now available!

Streaking swiftly through Hell skies, their three Hisso engines thundering, we find the famous and inseparable “Three Mosquitoes”. They were the mightiest flying combination that had ever blazed its way through overwhelming odds and laughed to tell of it! Captain Kirby, the impetuous leader of the great trio flew point with little mild-eyed “Shorty” Carn and lanky Travis, the eldest and wisest, filling out the “V” formation. With their customary battle cry, “Let’s go!”—they’re off on another dangerous mission in perilous skies!

From the pages of Popular Publications’ air war pulp magazines, author Ralph Oppenheim brings us four more unforgettable adventures of this reckless trio from 1932 and 1933:
The Invisible Circle, The Dynamite Flight, The Thunderbolt Ace, and The Iron Mask Patrol.

APE-MAN
THE UNOFFICIAL AND UNAUTHORIZED GUIDE TO 100 YEARS OF TARZAN
Now available and arriving in comic shops August 29!
(Writer) Sean Egan (Cover) Boris Vallejo

In October 1912, readers of The All-Story magazine were enthralled by Edgar Rice Burroughs' tale of John Clayton, an orphaned English lord given a simian upbringing in the African jungle who went on to reclaim his birth-right in civilisation while maintaining one foot in the savage land he had conquered. This book traces Tarzan's history in prose, film, comic strips, comic books, radio, stage, television, computer games and merchandise, charting the rise of one of the most popular and iconic characters in fiction. The book also examines the massive changes in public attitudes towards Africa, race, hereditary peers and wildlife conservation over the past century.

Black Dog Books
BLACK DOG BOOKS ANNOUNCES NEW EDITIONS BY L. PATRICK GREENE
 
Black Dog Books announced an exclusive agreement with the heirs of L. Patrick Greene to represent the L. Patrick Greene Literary Trust and issue new collections of works by the author.

"We are extremely honored to enter into this agreement with the family to represent and publish these collections," said Black Dog Books publisher Tom Roberts. "A large portion of Greene¹s fiction was collected in a series of three dozen hardcover editions published solely in his native England. Long out of print, these will now be made available readers worldwide in both print and ebook editions."
 
Prior to undertaking a career as an author, L. Patrick Greene (1891-1971) spent four years 'in-country' as a member of the Rhodesian Mounted Police. His experiences as a self-reliant constable fueled much of the African-set adventure fiction he would later pen, appearing in the all-fiction pulp magazines such as Short Stories, Adventure or Blue Book.


"While many writers followed in the footsteps of Kipling and other authors with their representation of British Colonial Africa, Greene is nearly unique in the fiction of the period in that he took a sympathetic viewpoint towards the plight of the indigenous peoples in his writings while Northern Europeans, seeped in the racially superior doctrine of the day, chose to exploit and belittle them," shared Roberts.

This viewpoint by Greene was not without reason. "As a young policeman Greene was injured while on patrol," Roberts continued, "and would likely have died were it not for the intersession of the Africans, who, at great personal hardship, transported Greene one hundred miles by foot to the nearest medical facility equipped to treat and save his life. Greene never forgot the debt he owed to the Africans, praised and uplifted the native people whenever possible for their generosity and knowledge of their land."
 
Black Dog Books¹ first release of Greene¹s fiction will be BARTERING THE SOULS OF MEN, the first of a two-book set collecting the adventures of South African mounted policeman 'Dynamite' Drury. BARTERING THE SOULS OF MEN will be released in 2013 with a foreword by Stephen Greene.
 
A second volume of Greene¹s stories is now in preparation by Black Dog Books. Subsequent collections will follow.

A vengeance quest that lasts for years!—and couched it in modern, realistic terms, producing a highly entertaining amalgam. Take a look and you'll see what I mean. I think you'll be thoroughly entertained."—James Reasoner from his introduction.

Hundreds of years before the hero Hadon sailed forth from his shining city of gold and jewels upon his legendary adventures, the heroine-priestess Lupoeth set out upon the decree of the oracle to discover a new land upon the untamed shores of ancient Africa’s southern sea. But Lupoeth finds herself little prepared for the trials ahead, as well as those that follow upon her heels—for the jealous queen who wants her rival banished has appointed a worshiper of the sun god with a criminal past as the expedition’s priest, hoping to undermine the mission and seal its doom.

Now, lost in the deep jungle, Lupoeth must fight to keep her ill-equipped band of followers alive in the face of deadly beasts, savage Neanderthals, and conspiring enemies. Soon she finds the most accursed deity of her people’s faith, exiled from the empire by the Great Goddess Kho Herself, may be her only ally in this wild land. But Sahhindar, the god of Time and bronze, has a mysterious agenda of his own—one that Lupoeth fears might spell doom not only for her expedition, but for the entire world…

This limited edition novella will be signed by the author, Christopher Paul Carey, coauthor with Philip José Farmer of the third novel in the Khokarsa series. The print run will be determined by the number of preorders we receive by June 30, 2012. A very limited number of copies beyond the preorders will be printed.

Mulholland Books - The Saint Returns in December!  
Hodder's crime and thriller imprint Mulholland Books is bringing the Saint books by Leslie Charteris (right) back into print, and making them available as e-books for the first time in the UK.

Mulholland Books editor Ruth Tross acquired British Commonwealth rights, excluding Canada, in the 35 titles from Jane Gelfman of Gelfman Schneider New York. They all feature the debonair sleuth, Simon Templar, nicknamed "the Saint" because of his initials-and likened by Tross to Robin Hood, "master of disguise, always getting in and out of scraps". The series was made into a televsion programme in the 1960s featuring Roger Moore in the title role.


The first batch of titles will be released on 6th December, with Enter the Saint, The Saint Closes the Case, The Avenging Saint, and Featuring the Saint all published in e-book and paperback, priced £8.99. Mulholland will then release four or five titles each month through to July 2013.

The books will each have new introductions by other thriller writers and Saint fans, with the introduction to Enter the Saint to be written by Patricia Charteris Higgins, the author's daughter. Ian Dickerson, who runs The Saint fan dub and moderates a number of Saint internet forums, is also in the process of compiling extra material to run in the e-books, to give the novels context.


Tross said: "The Saint has always been published by Hodder. So while it made sense for us to do this through Mulholland, because we have that focus on crime, we wanted to keep it within Hodder. I think all publishers are moving towards looking at backlists, and the advantage digital gives us to get those to a new audience. There is a serious group of people who are mad keen fans of the original TV series, and also a whole generation of fans who are aware of the character, but not the source material."

On the look of the series, Tross said: "It is going to have a fairly consistent branding image, using the stick man with the halo and gun. Certainly in series publishing it is going to have a strong style and image across the whole series that the reader will recognise across all the titles. I think lots of people will recognise the image already, perhaps some without knowing exactly why."


Look out for the first four titles in December, just in time for a Saintly Christmas.

Thanks to Ian Dickerson for the tip!

PARKER THE HUNTER Softcover - Coming in November!
Darwyn Cooke

The Hunter is the story of a man who hits New York head-on like a shotgun blast to the chest. Betrayed by the woman he loved and double-crossed by his partner in crime, Parker makes his way cross-country with only one thought burning in his mind-to coldly exact his revenge and reclaim what was taken from him!

Richard Stark (AKA Donald Westlake) was a master writer of crime fiction and Parker is arguably his greatest Creation-having been featured in more than a dozen novels and several well-regarded films (including Point Blank with Lee Marvin and Payback with Mel Gibson), and an upcoming one starring Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez that will be released this fall.

Master storyteller Darwyn Cooke has won nearly every award available to comics creators. His DC: The New Frontier was turned into an Emmy-nominated animated feature. The Hunter is the first in a series of Parker graphic novels that Cooke is adapting, the first two earning the comics Auteur more Eisner and Harvey awards for his already crowded mantle.


Trade paperback, 6x9, 160 pages, Full Color, $17.99

PARKER THE HUNTER is solicited in the September PREVIEWS (Available August 29).

THE ART TREASURE MURDERS by John L. Benton

STEPHEN DUANE, FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION
He had a justly famous record with the F.B.I., and through a maze of violent action and stealthy murder, he traces the ART TREASURE MURDERS to their startling denouement. Some of the greatest of the world’s paintings—slit from their frames in the great museums of Europe by the deft hand of the “Surgeon”, so-called because the stroke of his knife is as deft and unerring as that of the greatest in the medical world. Then a wealthy art dealer of Boston is stabbed to death by the single thrust of a needle-pointed knife. A New York portrait painter meets the same dark death. A collector, a gallery clerk, an art salesman… Through the American art world strikes the terror of the needle-pointed knife. Is it the knife of the “Surgeon”? Special Agent Stephen Duane of the F.B.I. stepped into the case when Charles Francis Coleman was found in his car stabbed to death.

Unabridged Audiobook

The Octopus
“The City Condemned to Hell”

 
Now available!

One of the most bizarre pulp magazines ever published was titled The Octopus.
 
Released in 1939 by Popular Publications, it turned the formula of The Spider on its head. Instead of centering on a fearless avenger of crime, it focused on the master criminal himself!
 
His true identity unknown, The Octopus is a denizen of the underworld, bent on bringing America's greatest city to its knees through a campaign of terror and horror never before seen.


Writers Norvell W. Page of Spider fame, backed by Edith and Eljir Jakobsson produced this weird epic under the name of Randolph Craig. Evidently they were attempting to duplicate the success of The Spider—with a weird twist. But there was more to The Octopus than an archfiend who dressed like a cuttlefish. Just as no pulp series can last long without a worthy villain, they understood that without a formidable foe, The Octopus would flop. So they created a hero with three identities. Jeffrey Fairchild is a wealthy medico. By day, he masquerades as kindly old Dr. Skull, treater of the sick in New York's East Side slums. But at night, he dons a more sinister guise and becomes the sworn foe of all crime—The Skull Killer! Branding his kills on the forehead like the Spider, The Skull Killer takes on The Octopus and his purple-eyed minions in the wildly over-the-top story, The City Condemned to Hell.
 
Backing up this masterpiece of weird menace are three novelettes torn from the pages of the only issue of The Octopus ever published. This audiobook is narrated by the talented brothers of Doug Stone and Glen Stone.

Now available!

Bringing the best of Classic Pulp to Fans today, Radio Archives presents Will Murray’s Pulp Classic’s line of top notch Pulp Fiction eBooks! 
 
New to Will Murray’s Pulp Classics, two new eBooks featuring the epic exploits of America’s best-loved pulp-fiction character of the 1930s and 1940s: The Spider — Master of Men!
 
Richard Wentworth — the dread Spider, nemesis of the Underworld, lone wolf anti-crime crusader who always fights in that grim no-man’s land between Law and lawless — returns in vintage pulp tales of the Spider, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and feature the original full color cover. Will Murray’s Pulp Classics line of eBooks are of the highest quality and feature the great Pulp Fiction stories of the 1930s-1950s.

The Spider #17: The Pain Emperor
In a hundred thousand homes, families sat down together at the supper table. A few hours later, those persons were dead — killed by poison in canned foods! Thousands of women used cosmetics, and acid made their faces forever hideously scarred. A master criminal, daring and clever, was ruthlessly slaughtering Americans to win immense illicit profits for himself. Only one man was powerful enough and wise enough to stop this wholesale murder — Richard Wentworth, champion of oppressed humanity, better known as the Spider. And the Spider was engaged in the bitterest battle of his career, fighting the Avenger, a false, wily crusader who was determined to destroy him! Another epic exploit of America's best-loved pulp-fiction character of the 1930s and 1940s: The Spider — Master of Men!

The Spider #18: The Flame Master
Richard Wentworth was playing the most dangerous game in the world — a man-hunter outside the law; a righteous lone-wolf avenger of the weak; a scourge of the evil, the wicked and the corrupt! Loathed by the organized armies of the underworld, hunted ruthlessly by the forces of the law, he was ever between two raking cross-fires... Seldom, however, had the Spider, Master of men, faced the odds which challenged him when the man called Aronk Dong summoned all the underworld to serve him in the most ghastly campaign of rampant crime and wholesale slaughter this country had ever experienced. Armed with a weapon which struck through stone walls at victims sleeping peacefully in their beds, it was small wonder that criminals everywhere hailed the new leader — and flocked in evil glee to his dark banner! Another epic exploit of America's best-loved pulp-fiction character of the 1930s and 1940s: The Spider — Master of Men!

As a special Bonus, Will Murray has written “Meet the Spider” especially for this series of eBooks.

Operator 5 #13: ​March of the Flame Marauders
Oil — black gold — the blood of Mother Earth! America had squandered its precious reserves and a syndicate of skilled saboteurs was destroying the remaining store! With all National defense rendered helpless for want of it, bitter despair gripped the hearts of the country’s millions. Pillage, slaughter, and slavery — misery and death — threatened each American! And Jimmy Christopher, Operator 5 of the United States Intelligence, was gambling his life recklessly in a valiant effort to save his native land from extinction!

From the archives of the mighty Ancients, Curt Newton brings back forgotten Denebian science to balk a greed-maddened schemer who seeks to loose unspeakable terror on the Universe! Captain Future… the Ace of Space!

Born and raised on the moon, Curt Newton survived the murder of his scientist parents to become the protector of the galaxy known as Captain Future. With his Futuremen, Grag the giant robot, Otho, the shape-shifting android and Simon Wright, the Living Brain, he patrols the solar system in the fastest space ship ever constructed, the Comet, pursuing human monsters and alien threats to Earth and her neighbor planets.

Doctor Death #3: The Shriveling Murders
Giants shrivel to doll-size in Death’s most horrible scientific coup! Washington is about to collapse! Jimmy Holm uses the sinister scientist’s own gory weapons to battle the learned monster. This saturnalia of science is filled with bloodshed and terror.
 
The maddest of the Mad Scientists — Doctor Death — starred in his own bizarre pulp magazine in early 1935. He consorted with demons, elementals, zombies, disinterred mummies, and other unclean denizens of Hell. Standing against him were the Secret Twelve, a band of the top U. S. civil and business leaders, headed by Jimmy Holm, a millionaire criminologist and occultist. One of the rare unabashedly supernatural series the pulps ever produced.

Captain Philip Strange: Strange Enemies by Donald E. Keyhoe

They were STRANGE ENEMIES! Once they were just two young lovers, pledging their devotion in a Mecklenberg garden. Now they are reluctant rivals enmeshed in the biggest conflict the world has ever seen. While the Great War had forged him into the so-called Brain-Devil, America’s top agent, she had become the famous Fraulein Doktor, Germany’s most alluring and elusive spy. When love and loyalty collide in eight epic tales of WWI aviation and intrigue, the bullets—and the sparks—are going  to fly.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER #34

Now available & shipping to subscribers!


Murania Press hits next week’s PulpFest with several new publications, beginning with BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER #34. This jumbo-sized Tenth Anniversary Issue boasts something unique in pulpzine history: the reprinting of a complete, book-length (60,000 words) novel. The yarn is Francis Lynde’s “B. Typhosus Takes a Hand,” originally published in a 1922 issue of THE POPULAR MAGAZINE.

In addition to this 80-page bonus feature, the anniversary issue contains the usual complement of high-quality articles and departments. There’s a history of Chandu the Magician on radio and in film; a lengthy examination of the “New Pulp” publishing phenomenon; a 1940 WRITER’S DIGEST piece by pulp writer Nelson Bond on the importance of snappy starts to manuscripts; a revisiting of science-fictional continuities from the 1940s Superman radio show; a celebration of pulp writer Frederick Nebel’s hardboiled detectives Donahue and Cardigan; a look back at the trend-setting 1914 movie serial THE PERILS OF PAULINE; and a pictorial review of this year’s Windy City Pulp and Paper Expo. Additionally, BNT editor Ed Hulse acknowledges the magazine’s tenth anniversary in a long, incisive essay.
 

This special issue of BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER -- at 162 pages it’s half again as long as an average issue -- is illustrated with the usual array of pulp covers, original art, and rare photos and posters from movies. Although priced at $15.95 for single-copy buyers, it will count as a regular issue for subscribers. Subscription copies will be mailed later this month.


Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
PIRATES OF THE PINES by A. M. Chisholm
Now available!


Also making its debut at PulpFest is A. M. Chisholm’s PIRATES OF THE PINES, #3 in Murania’s Classic Pulp Reprints series. Originally published in the October 20, 1915 issue of Street & Smith’s POPULAR MAGAZINE as “Fur Pirates,” this rousing adventure yarn is set in the wilderness fringing northwestern Canada’s great Carcajou River. It features as protagonist and narrator the 18-year-old Bob Cory, who lives with his sister Peggy on their uncle’s modest homestead.
 
While out one day with Jim Dunleath, an invalid who has gone north to recover his health, Bob unearths a buried letter written by notorious fur thief Angus McNab to his brother, revealing the location of a fortune in stolen pelts cached on one of the small islands that dot the nearby Burntwood Lakes. Since the 20-year-old missive never reached its intended recipient, Dunleath reasons that the treasure must still be in its hiding place. He confides in a wealthy Eastern sportsman named Fothergill, who agrees to bankroll an expedition to find the cache.
 
It’s giving away no secret to report that Chisholm quite deliberately patterned his tale on TREASURE ISLAND. (POPULAR’s editor Charles Agnew MacLean hinted as much in his introductory blurb to the story, which is included in Murania’s reprint.) Nearly every element in “Fur Pirates” corresponded to something in Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale. And yet Chisholm’s yarn is no slavish imitation. It’s a brilliantly executed pastiche, a genuine tour de force. The characters have personalities all their own, the settings are vividly described, and the yarn is suffused with verisimilitude. The story works magnificently on its own terms; you don’t have to be familiar with Stevenson’s immortal classic to appreciate Chisholm’s exhilarating homage. But if you are, well, that’ll just enhance the experience.

BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER’S CLIFFHANGER CLASSICS, also available at PulpFest, collects 20 informative essays that originally appeared in the pages of BNT and deal with the great movie serials.

Nearly 100,000 words long and over 300 pages, the book is illustrated with two lengthy galleries including dozens of rare stills, posters and lobby cards from the serials under discussion.

The Devil's Bride: Mysteries of Jules de Gandin
Now available!

THE DEVIL'S BRIDE was the only full-length mystery featuring French occult detective Jules de Grandin. Inspired by Aleister Crowley, and rich with Lovecraftian visions of a gibbering xenomorphic evil from the "dark” continents, THE DEVIL'S BRIDE is an epic tale of black magic, murder and mutilation, rape and torture, and genocidal race war.

This new edition of THE DEVIL'S BRIDE also includes a bonus story, HOUSE OF GOLDEN MASKS, in which vicious white slavers are abducting young girls and subjecting them to bizarre rituals of torture and sexual degradation. Seabury Quinn's tales of Jules de Grandin were amongst the most popular to appear in Weird Tales magazine, with over 90 episodes appearing between 1926 and 1938. The stories were notable not only for their supernatural overtones, but also for strong elements of sadistic violence, misogynistic torture and cruelty, negative racial profiling, and frequent scenes of female nudity. In fact, Quinn was sure to include at least one scene of a naked girl under duress in every piece, so that resident cover artist Margaret Brundage was provided with suitably lurid visual material. As relics from a less enlightened age, Quinn's stories can only now be read at face value, and by doing so the reader will enter a weird, sexually perverse world of murder, mayhem, and machine-gun diplomacy.

PARKER THE HUNTER SC - Coming in November!
Darwyn Cooke

The Hunter is the story of a man who hits New York head-on like a shotgun blast to the chest. Betrayed by the woman he loved and double-crossed by his partner in crime, Parker makes his way cross-country with only one thought burning in his mind-to coldly exact his revenge and reclaim what was taken from him!

Richard Stark (AKA Donald Westlake) was a master writer of crime fiction and Parker is arguably his greatest Creation-having been featured in more than a dozen novels and several well-regarded films (including Point Blank with Lee Marvin and Payback with Mel Gibson), and an upcoming one starring Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez that will be released this fall.

Master storyteller Darwyn Cooke has won nearly every award available to comics creators. His DC: The New Frontier was turned into an Emmy-nominated animated feature. The Hunter is the first in a series of Parker graphic novels that Cooke is adapting, the first two earning the comics Auteur more Eisner and Harvey awards for his already crowded mantle.

Popular Mechanics The Amazing Weapons That Never Were
Robots, Flying Tanks & Other Machines of War

Coming November 6!

Between 1910 and 1970, scientists and military experts made hundreds of predictions in Popular Mechanics about the future of warfare. Some of those prophecies were downright nuts, while others veered eerily close to reality. This collection of vintage articles, with their stunning original art, will spark the imagination of every military buff, retrophile, and futurist. And the jacket unfolds into an amazing 24” x 19” poster of fantastic machines, blasters, and flying tanks. Astrophysics professor, science-fiction author, and NASA advisor Gregory Benford provides an introduction to every chapter.

THE 2012 MUNSEY AWARD & RUSTY HEVELIN SERVICE AWARD

Matt Moring has been named the winner of the 2012 Munsey Award. Nominated by the general pulp community, Matt was selected by a panel consisting of all the living Lamont and Munsey Award winners. The award is a fine art print by Dan Zimmer of a painting by David Saunders. It is presented annually to a deserving person who has given of himself or herself for the betterment of the pulp community.

In relatively few years, Matt’s  Altus Press has published many rare pulp stories as well as non-fiction books dealing with the characters and history of the pulps. To date he has published all of Kendell Foster Crossen’s Green Lama stories, half of the adventures of Secret Agent X, Les Savage’s Senorita Scorpion stories, Fred Nebel’s Tough Dick Donahue private eye adventures, and collections of lesser known characters such as Johnston McCulley’s The Man in Purple, Paul Ernst’s Seekay, and Lester Dent’s The Blond Adder. His Dime Detective Companion is a superb reference to one of the leading detective magazines of the pulp era, while The Revised Complete Chronology of Bronze, written by Rick Lai, dissects the adventures of Doc Savage. Recently issued  is the thirtieth anniversary issue of Echoes, one of the best pulp history fanzines of all time. Together with Will Murray, Matt revived the Doc Savage series, publishing brand new stories featuring “The Man of Bronze” after a twenty-year absence. The Altus Press website is also an excellent reference source featuring links to The Pulp Superhero Index and The Echoes Index. Such energy needs to be recognized and rewarded. Matt Moring and others like him are the future of the pulp collecting hobby.

The voting for the 2012 Munsey Award actually ended in a tie. The other select individual, David J. Cullers, better known as Jack Cullers, is the chairman of the PulpFest committee. Jack has worked quietly and tirelessly for the pulp community for decades. A longtime volunteer for any number of pulp conventions, Jack has ferried guests of honor to and from airports and made sure they had a friendly face with whom to dine. He has stuffed and addressed envelopes, arranged for advertising, organized auctions, and done many other behind-the-scenes tasks, selflessly and without seeking accolades. Time and again, he has welcomed newcomers to the hobby, even inviting them to his home for dinner during their earliest pulp conventions. He has offered space at his dealer tables for down-on-their-luck pulpsters unable to attend conventions.


As PulpFest chairman, Jack has worked to assure that convention guests, dealers, presenters, and attendees are treated fairly and respectfully, helping everyone to feel welcome and comfortable at the convention. Of course, Jack could not have done all that he has done without the support of his wife, Sally, herself a longtime pulp con volunteer, often helping with registrations and auctions. His children and friends have also lent a hand. Come convention time, the “Cullers Clan” is hard at work, making sure things run as smoothly as possible.

Not wishing to diminish Matt Moring’s “day in the sun,” Jack asked that his name be withdrawn from consideration. However, the remaining members of the PulpFest committee felt that it was well past time that Jack and Sally Cullers’ devotion to the pulp community be recognized.

With this in mind, it was determined to issue a second award, The Rusty Hevelin Service Award, designed to recognize those individuals within the pulp community who have worked long and hard for the pulp community with little thought for individual recognition. It is meant to reward especially good works and is thus reserved only for those individuals who are most deserving. And no individuals are more deserving than Jack and Sally Cullers who have labored long and hard for our small community of pulp lovers.

Congratulations to Matt Moring, the 2012 winner of The Munsey Award, and to Jack and Sally Cullers, the 2012 winners of The Rusty Hevelin Service Award. All three individuals are most deserving of these honor

Pulpville Press - Now available!
Here is a smashing, red-blooded mystery yarn, packed with fast action. This is crime as the police in "open" towns know it; hard-boiled detectives and as tough a collection of criminals as can be found in any metropolitan line-up.

Torrey sets a speedy pace and the book tears to a climax you won't forget. Shean Connell, a private detective, sets out to clear up a divorce case in Reno, and finds that he has been framed by the man who is boss of the town's criminals. After he views the woman in the morgue and has the tip of his ear shot away, he realizes that murder and not divorce is being plotted.

Why wouldn't Tod Wendel's wife speak to him? Between the wealthy society woman and her husband stood the forces of the underworld-gangsters, white slavers, dope runners-and Shean Connell breaks the case in the hardest-hitting, lustiest mystery novel since Dashiell Hammett.

Sexton Blake Annual 1940

Now available!


In 1938, the Amalgamated Press launched a softcover annual featuring one of the most popular characters they published. Created by Harry Blyth, Sexton Blake's first adventure had appeared in the pages of The Halfpenny Marvel in 1893. A year later, Blake became the regular star of the weekly storypaper Union Jack and, in 1915, star of the long-running Sexton Blake Library. With appearances across the company's wide-range of titles, Blake solved over 3,800 cases, with 150 million words dedicated to his thrilling adventures.

The Sexton Blake Annual brought together some of the most popular authors of the Blake saga. The 1940 annual includes stories by Gwyn Evans, George H. Teed, Rex Hardinge and two stories by Anthony Skene, one entitled 'Zenith the Albino' (guess who features in that one!). This volume also reprints of two early stories, "Sexton Blake — Detective" by Blake's creator, Harold Blyth, and "The Man From Scotland Yard" by Michael Storm (Ernest Sempill), which introduced the character of good-cop-turned-bad George Marsden Plummer.

From the stunning cover by Eric R. Parker to the revelations on the final page, this superb collection will take you back to the golden age of crime and action-packed drama as Sexton Blake battles some of his most dangerous foes.


Sexton Blake Annual 1940 is published in perfect bound format, 164 pages b/w with a stunning colour cover by Eric R. Parker.

Fading Shadows
DOUBLE DANGER TALES #64
Now available!

Compere had not been able to get Peggy away from the door leading to the stairwell, and he knew that danger lay in that direction. He increased his deadly fire, but had become a non-moving target himself. A bullet from one of the gangster’s guns clipped the little gas container on his belt, and suddenly two skull-faced apparitions appeared, one on each wrist of his hands. With a slight movement of his wrists, the gas-filled balloons were disconnected and flew from his outstretched arms with a loud hiss, each flying in opposite directions.

The appearance of the banshees was so sudden, gangsters turned their fire on the two escaping gas balloons, and Compere accounted for another four hoodlums as their guns had been diverted from him.

Unfortunately, his luck was running out. He heard a light sound from behind, a short sigh from Peggy, and then he felt the cold hard steel of the barrel of a revolver digging into his spine. A vicious voice grunted from behind, "Drop your cannons, friend, or this girl gets a bullet in the head!"

 Black Wings II - New Tales of Lovecraftian Horror


This second instalment of S. T. Joshi’s critically acclaimed Black Wings series contains eighteen stories by leading contemporary writers, all drawing upon themes, images, and ideas from the life and work of H. P. Lovecraft. Caitlín R. Kiernan has written a poetic reinterpretation of “The Hound,” while Nicholas Royle plays a fascinating riff on the existential horror of “The Outsider.” Three separate tales, by Jason C. Eckhardt, Brian Evenson, and Jonathan Thomas, ring changes on Lovecraft’s seminal story, “The Call of Cthulhu.” Nick Mamatas writes an ingenious elaboration of “The Whisperer in Darkness.”
 
The cosmic indifferentism that is the core of Lovecraft’s fiction is treated in various ways by John Langan, Melanie Tem, Tom Fletcher, Darrell Schweitzer, and Richard Gavin. The archaeological horror that we find in some of Lovecraft’s most powerful tales is revivified by Donald Tyson, while Lovecraft’s media presence is made the subject of half-comic, half-horrific tales by Don Webb and Chet Williamson. John Shirley, Rick Dakan, and Jason V Brock use Lovecraft’s life and outlook as springboards for imaginative tales of psychological and supernatural horror.
 
All in all, Black Wings II affords a rich feast of terror inspired by the twentieth century’s greatest writer of the supernatural.

Pulpville Press - Now available!
Tarzan is the dream man we would most of us like to be. When we surrender ourselves to the thrill of his exploits in the African Jungle we are yielding to the pull of primitive impulses and are back in prehistoric times swinging from tree to tree in glorious abandon through the primeval forest or fighting the great cave bear with our rude stone weapons. Tarzan is such a unique character, a majestic man and a noble beast, an aristocrat in civilization and a King in the Jungle. Tarzan came and he conquered and his marvelous adventures are today the favorite reading of millions of Americans. “Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar” is every bit as good as any previous Tarzan tale. It has the same breathless interest, the thrills, and the fascination. Long available only with censored text, ERBville Press is proud to present the original First Edition book version of this novel in the Tarzan Series.

The Spider #12: Reign of the Silver Terror
Fear stalked the corridors and offices on Capitol Hill, for it was from the ranks of the mighty — the rulers and lawmakers of America — that the Silver Assassins sought their victims! Singly, in pairs and in numbered groups they died, laying down their lives for their country — while panic spread, and the Spider, alone aware of the terrific catastrophe which impended, fought through black, bodiless shadows to reach and destroy the menace which festered underground! Another epic exploit of America's best-loved pulp-fiction character of the 1930s and 1940s: The Spider — Master of Men! As a special Bonus, Will Murray has written an introduction: “Meet the Spider” especially for this series of eBooks.

The Spider #14: Death’s Crimson Juggernaut
Hideous maniacal laughter shattered the dark silence of ghostly tenements. Sleepy-eyed men and women, stumbling through the dim halls of the building, found a sight that chilled their souls with terror. On a blank wall, spikes driven through her, hands and feet, blood coursing down her arms and breasts in tiny rivulets, a beautiful young woman was hanging, crucified, dying. Still another victim of the Torture Trust! And while panic spreads, while hundreds die victims of the Killers, the Spider is blinded, his faithful servants imprisoned, his friends dishonored! How can Richard Wentworth, desperate and alone, combat the powerful, well-organized Murder Syndicate whose gun hirelings hunt him down like a vicious mad dog? Another epic exploit of America's best-loved pulp-fiction character of the 1930s and 1940s: The Spider — Master of Men! As a special Bonus, Will Murray has written an introduction: “Meet the Spider” especially for this series of eBooks.

Operator 5 #12: The Army of the Dead
The news spread like wild-fire. A man had solved the problem of the ages — he was bringing the dead back to life! Operator 5, ace of the American Secret Service, recognized the grave menace. He realized the danger if the gigantic advances of modern science were employed selfishly by unscrupulous men. And that precisely was the danger facing his native land!

The Master of Death, using the promise of life everlasting, was cunningly building an army of fanatic, half-mad followers, men who were burning, pillaging and slaying at the will of the man-monster they worshipped!


Captain Future #17: Days of Creation
Four powerful factions work at cosmic cross purposes in a game of system-wide stakes as Curt Newton and his staunch comrades set out to create a brand new planet to add to the family of the Sun! Captain Future… the Ace of Space!

Born and raised on the moon, Curt Newton survived the murder of his scientist parents to become the protector of the galaxy known as Captain Future. With his Futuremen, Grag the giant robot, Otho, the shape-shifting android and Simon Wright, the Living Brain, he patrols the solar system in the fastest space ship ever constructed, the Comet, pursuing human monsters and alien threats to Earth and her neighbor planets.

The Scorpion #1: Satan’s Incubator
Wholesale murder-madness gripped an entire city when mothers killed their own children and husbands slew the wives they loved! Only two people knew the dread cause of this charnel-house terror; one was the Scorpion, relentless crime-master who would ride to power on the red crest of the death-mania. The other was the honest little medico of mystery — Dr. Skull!
 
The Scorpion was the pinnacle of weird menace. He appeared once, in a single pulp magazine issue, and never appeared again. The magazine never made to a series, for some reason. It was over-the-top action and audacious horror-thrills.  A classic, the likes of which has never been seen again! One of the rare supernatural series the pulps, The Scorpion returns in this vintage pulp tale, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

SENTINELS: THE GRAND DESIGN -- OMNIBUS PAPERBACK
The First Trilogy of Van Allen Plexico’s Superhero Novel Series
At Last in a One-Volume Edition!
Now available!

White Rocket Books proudly announces the release in trade paperback format of Van Allen Plexico’s SENTINELS: THE GRAND DESIGN, a one-volume collection of the first three novels in the famed cosmic superhero saga!

Weighing in at a whopping 624 pages and with a stunning painted cover by celebrated artist Mitch Foust, the “Grand Design” Omnibus also features no fewer than fifteen full-page interior illustrations by series artist Chris Kohler.

The book contains all three volumes of the first Sentinels trilogy (When Strikes the Warlord, A Distant Star, and Apocalypse Rising) in their entirety, introducing the heroes and villains (and those in between) that make up this fascinating and compelling superhero universe. 

What begins as an attempted abduction of a young student from her college campus quickly spirals out to engulf a diverse collection of individuals, including billionaire inventor and hero-wannabe Esro Brachis, beloved national savior (and amnesiac) Ultraa, wisecracking daredevil Damon “Cavalier” Sinclair, and mysterious alien powerhouse Vanadium.  Can this motley crew come together as a team in time to save the Earth from conquest or destruction?



Through the eyes of central character Lyn Li, a Chinese-American teen that possesses amazing electromagnetic powers, we encounter aliens and androids, geniuses and demigods, megalomaniacal arch-villains, space-borne monsters, and everything else one would expect from a classic Bronze-Age comic series—in New Pulp novel form!

“For most of my life I’ve loved the concept of a superhero team made up of very distinct individuals who barely get along with one another,” says author Van Allen Plexico.  “The fun comes in watching them encounter mind-blowing menaces and have to find a way—some way!—to work together long enough to miraculously save the day.  Throw in the ability that a novel series provides, to allow characters to really change and grow (and even die!) along the way, and you get what I strongly believe is a saga every superhero comics fan will love.  And with Chris Kohler illustrating the whole thing, you can’t go wrong!”
Plexico’s Sentinels series has been praised by Kirkus Reviews for offering “a fresh take on the superhero theme,” and by Pulp Fiction Reviews as “spectacular, action-packed, imaginative and wonderful.”  Noted superhero novelist Ian Thomas Healy called them “Kirbyesque,” describing Volume One as “the first book that successfully translates the feel of a comic book into prose.”

White Rocket Books is a leader in the New Pulp movement, publishing exciting action and adventure novels and anthologies since 2005, in both traditional and electronic formats.   White Rocket books have hit the Amazon.com Top 15-by-Genre and have garnered praise from everyone from Marvel Comics Vice-President Tom Brevoort to Kirkus Reviews.

On sale as of August 8, 2012, SENTINELS: THE GRAND DESIGN (Omnibus) is a $21.95, 6x9 format trade paperback from White Rocket Books.  (The individual novels are already available as $2.99 e-books for Kindle and other e-readers.)

The Big Book of Ghost Stories
Vintage Crime/Black Lizard Original
Edited by Otto Penzler

Coming September 18!

THE BIG BOOK OF GHOST STORIES is a spirited Black Lizard anthology with over a thousand pages of haunted—and haunting—tales.

The ghost story is perhaps the oldest of all the supernatural literary genres and has captured the imagination of almost every writer to put pen to the page. Here, Edgar Award-winning editor Otto Penzler has followed his keen sense of the supernatural to collect the most chilling and uncanny tales in the canon. These spectral stories span more than a hundred years, from modern-day horrors by Joyce Carol Oates, Chet Williamson and Andrew Klavan, to pulp yarns from August Derleth, Greye La Spina, and M. L. Humphreys, to the atmospheric Victorian tales of Rudyard Kipling, Edith Wharton, and H. P. Lovecraft, not to mention modern works by the likes of Donald E. Westlake and Isaac Asimov that are already classics. Some of these stories have haunted the canon for a century, while others are making their first ghoulish appearance  in book form.  Whether you prefer possessive poltergeists, awful apparitions, or friendly phantoms, these stories are guaranteed to thrill you, tingle the spine, or tickle the funny bone, and keep you turning the pages with fearful delight.

Including such classics as “The Monkey’s Paw” and “The Open Window” and eerie vintage illustrations, and also featuring haunted mansions, midnight frights, lovers from beyond the grave, rapping, tapping, wailing shades, and ghosts, ghouls, and specters galore!

THE CHILD WHO WALKED ON THE SKY
by Pierre Pelot
adapted by Michael Shreve

Pierre Pelot is one of the grandmasters of modern French science fiction. His writing career spans over 40 years and includes over 200 novels in various genres, from westerns to science fiction, and crime thrillers to prehistoric novels. His books have been translated into twenty languages. However, this is his first translation into English.

The Child Who Walked on the Sky (1972) is Pelot's third science fiction novel, in which a maladjusted eight-year old is forced to flee the strange, artificial world of Zod, but his search for truth and a better life will take him to an entirely new world, beyond even his imagination.

THE ADVENTURES OF MISS BOSTON
THE FIRST FEMALE DETECTIVE
by Antonin Reschal
adapted by Nina Cooper


Long before Charlie's Angels, Jessica Fletcher, Miss Marple, and even Judith Lee, there was Ethel Boston, the first female consulting detective in America, a former associate of Nick Carter, trained by famous detective William Hopkins.

Miss Boston was the prototype of the New Woman, who believed and fought for sexual and legal equality with men. She was educated, athletic and vigorous, and avoided marriage as it interfered with her self-fulfillment and independence. Miss Boston not only achieved equality, she surpassed it.

Created by Antonin Reschal (1874-1935), Miss Boston's adventures and those of her sidekick, Chief Inspector Sokes, ran through 20 installments published in Paris in 1908-09. This book collects eleven of her exploits, including the adventure in which she helps Dr. Watson catch Sherlock Holmes' murderer, and the saga of her battle against the One Hundred Thousand Arms Gang.

“What, another one?” Yep….
A New Magazine from Murania Press!


Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER #34

Available at PulpFest & shipping to subscribers later this month!


Murania Press hits next week’s PulpFest with several new publications, beginning with BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER #34. This jumbo-sized Tenth Anniversary Issue boasts something unique in pulpzine history: the reprinting of a complete, book-length (60,000 words) novel. The yarn is Francis Lynde’s “B. Typhosus Takes a Hand,” originally published in a 1922 issue of THE POPULAR MAGAZINE.

In addition to this 80-page bonus feature, the anniversary issue contains the usual complement of high-quality articles and departments. There’s a history of Chandu the Magician on radio and in film; a lengthy examination of the “New Pulp” publishing phenomenon; a 1940 WRITER’S DIGEST piece by pulp writer Nelson Bond on the importance of snappy starts to manuscripts; a revisiting of science-fictional continuities from the 1940s Superman radio show; a celebration of pulp writer Frederick Nebel’s hardboiled detectives Donahue and Cardigan; a look back at the trend-setting 1914 movie serial THE PERILS OF PAULINE; and a pictorial review of this year’s Windy City Pulp and Paper Expo. Additionally, BNT editor Ed Hulse acknowledges the magazine’s tenth anniversary in a long, incisive essay.
 


This special issue of BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER -- at 162 pages it’s half again as long as an average issue -- is illustrated with the usual array of pulp covers, original art, and rare photos and posters from movies. Although priced at $15.95 for single-copy buyers, it will count as a regular issue for subscribers. Subscription copies will be mailed later this month.

PIRATES OF THE PINES by A. M. Chisholm
Making its debut at PulpFest!


Also making its debut at PulpFest is A. M. Chisholm’s PIRATES OF THE PINES, #3 in Murania’s Classic Pulp Reprints series. Originally published in the October 20, 1915 issue of Street & Smith’s POPULAR MAGAZINE as “Fur Pirates,” this rousing adventure yarn is set in the wilderness fringing northwestern Canada’s great Carcajou River. It features as protagonist and narrator the 18-year-old Bob Cory, who lives with his sister Peggy on their uncle’s modest homestead.
 
While out one day with Jim Dunleath, an invalid who has gone north to recover his health, Bob unearths a buried letter written by notorious fur thief Angus McNab to his brother, revealing the location of a fortune in stolen pelts cached on one of the small islands that dot the nearby Burntwood Lakes. Since the 20-year-old missive never reached its intended recipient, Dunleath reasons that the treasure must still be in its hiding place. He confides in a wealthy Eastern sportsman named Fothergill, who agrees to bankroll an expedition to find the cache.
 
It’s giving away no secret to report that Chisholm quite deliberately patterned his tale on TREASURE ISLAND. (POPULAR’s editor Charles Agnew MacLean hinted as much in his introductory blurb to the story, which is included in Murania’s reprint.) Nearly every element in “Fur Pirates” corresponded to something in Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale. And yet Chisholm’s yarn is no slavish imitation. It’s a brilliantly executed pastiche, a genuine tour de force. The characters have personalities all their own, the settings are vividly described, and the yarn is suffused with verisimilitude. The story works magnificently on its own terms; you don’t have to be familiar with Stevenson’s immortal classic to appreciate Chisholm’s exhilarating homage. But if you are, well, that’ll just enhance the experience.

CLIFFHANGER CLASSICS
Also available at PulpFest!

BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER’S CLIFFHANGER CLASSICS, also available at PulpFest, collects 20 informative essays that originally appeared in the pages of BNT and deal with the great movie serials. There are no gushy, repetitive fanboy puff-pieces in this book; each essay is the product of solid research and interviews with the actors, writers and directors involved.
 
Titles covered at length include THE IRON CLAW (1916), PATRIA (1917), THE GREEN ARCHER (1925), THE HOUSE WITHOUT A KEY (1926), JUNGLE MYSTERY (1932), THE RED RIDER (1934), NEW ADVENTURES OF TARZAN (1935), TIM TYLER’S LUCK (1937), SECRET OF TREASURE ISLAND (1938), THE LONE RANGER (1938), THE SHADOW (1940), DRUMS OF FU MANCHU (1940), and DAREDEVILS OF THE WEST (1943). Serial performers and technicians interviewed specifically for these articles (over a period of several decades) include Kay Aldridge, Henry Brandon, Herman Brix, Yakima Canutt, George DeNormand, Rose Hobart, Iris Meredith, Cecilia Parker, Barry Shipman, Frank Leon Smith, Frankie Thomas, and William Witney.
 
Nearly 100,000 words long and over 300 pages, the book is illustrated with two lengthy galleries including dozens of rare stills, posters and lobby cards from the serials under discussion.


NOTE: All Murania Press books will be sold during PulpFest at 20 percent off cover price.  But the sale will last only as long as the convention does, so if you  plan on attending, don’t miss your chance to get some real bargains! The discount will not apply to current or previous issues of BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER, only to Murania Press books.

Painstakingly edited by Joseph Wrzos, with essays and memoirs on Bok by Ray Bradbury, Stephen Fabian, and many others, this book features over 600 illustrations. Many come from the pulps and pulp covers.

Key works also feature detail views.

Printed on heavy paper, with printed cloth panels, ribbon markers, and a printed cloth slipcase, the edition is limited to 200 copies for sale and is signed by most contributors. The book is printed using stochastic screening with five inks, resulting in unparalleled clarity and color reproduction.

Clive Cussler: THE TOMBS - Coming September 4!
With Thomas Perry

Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are intrigued when an archaeologist friend requests their help excavating a top secret historical site.  What they find will set them on a hunt for a prize greater than they could ever imagine.  The clues point to the hidden tomb of Attila the Hun, the High King who was reportedly buried with a vast fortune of gold and jewels and plunder . . . a bounty that has never been found.  As they follow the trail through Hungary, Italy, France, Russia, and Kazakhstan—a trail that they discover leads them not to one tomb, but five—the Fargos will find themselves pitted against a thieving group of amateur treasure hunters, a cunning Russian businessman, and a ruthless Hungarian who claims direct descent from Attila himself . . . and will stop at nothing to claim the tombs’ riches as his own.

Hard Case Crime - Coming soon!

August 2012!
THE TWENTY-YEAR DEATH by Ariel S. Winter
Cover art by Chuck Pyle

A breathtaking first novel written in the form of three separate crime novels, each set in a different decade and penned in the style of a different giant of the mystery genre.

1931
The body found in the gutter in France led the police inspector to the dead man’s beautiful daughter—and to her hot-tempered American husband.

1941
A hardboiled private eye hired to keep a movie studio’s leading lady happy uncovers the truth behind the brutal slaying of a Hollywood starlet.

1951
A desperate man pursuing his last chance at redemption finds himself with blood on his hands and the police on his trail...

Three complete novels that, taken together, tell a single epic story, about an author whose life is shattered when violence and tragedy consume the people closest to him. It is an ingenious and emotionally powerful debut performance from literary detective and former bookseller Ariel S. Winter, one that establishes this talented newcomer as a storyteller of the highest caliber.

First publication ever!

September 2012
THE COCKTAIL WAITRESS by James M. Cain
Cover art by Michael Koelsch

Cain died in 1977. And that’s where everyone thought the story ended. But James M. Cain has one more story to tell— one last blistering tale of sex and greed, betrayal and deception, written at the end of his life but never published—
THE COCKTAIL WAITRESS

Destined to take its place alongside his other classics, THE COCKTAIL WAITRESS is Cain at his brutal and seductive best.
First publication ever!

A lost, unpublished novel by one of the greatest noir novelists of all time, discovered 35 years after his death
Featuring a 4,000-word afterword by Hard Case Crime editor Charles Ardai discussing the book, its discovery, and the process of editing Cain’s original manuscripts



The Huntsman Legion: An Audio Adventure by Caine Dorr
Audio Drama that is out of this world!
Coming in December!

In conjunction with the Masked Marauder Matinee podcast, NOTHER Audio Drama
has announced that The Huntsman Legion: An Audio Adventure by Caine Dorr is scheduled for December 2012.

What started as ripples in the multiverse was soon recognized as quite possibly the most potentially disastrous event any one world within the multiverse would ever have to endure. This crisis was not limited to one world however as it existed in Nexus space, between alternate realities of the multiverse, and threatened thousands of worlds all at once.

The Huntsman Legion was born. One hundred special agents, most genetically enhanced, were drafted into the Legion and each one sent through the Nexus Gate into a Multiverse crisis hot spot in order to quell the spreading disaster before it could get rolling.

Huntsman R7R, Tom Spenser, is one of the Huntsman Legion…


The Huntsman Legion series is written by Caine Dorr.
Check out more work by Caine at The Masked Marauder Matinee
.





Some of the guests announced to date are:
James Darren, Singer and Actor
Tall, good-looking James Darren was a student of acting coach Stella Adler and made his name in the 1950s in a series of teenage-themed films. A better actor than most of his contemporary teenage heartthrobs, which is probably why he was the only actor who appeared in all three Gidget movies, Gidget (1959), Gidget Goes Hawaiian (1961) and Gidget Goes to Rome (1963).  It was in 1965 that James Darren was approach to co-star in a television series, The Time Tunnel, which has since become a pop culture classic.

Robert Colbert from The Time Tunnel and Maverick
Robert Colbert became an enduring television icon when he got the starring leads on Maverick and The Time Tunnel, two classic televisions series that can still be seen in reruns today.

The Lone Ranger Rides Again!
Robert Daniel, grandson of the late Brace Beemer (radio's The Lone Ranger), will be among the many attendees at the 2012 Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention. Robert will have some impressive photos and artifacts from Beemer's scrapbooks on display.

Ron Ely, Doc Savage and Television’s Tarzan
The 15th screen Tarzan (if you don’t count Gordon Griffith) was to have played a Tarzan impersonator in a projected Mike Henry television show, which never materialized. He had been tested 14 months earlier when Henry got the part. In 1966, Ron Ely signed to play the lead role of Tarzan (a.k.a. Lord Greystoke), in a successful television series that ran two full seasons. Already well educated and fed up with civilization, Tarzan returned to the jungle and, more-or-less assisted by chimpanzee Cheetah and orphan boy Jai, waged war against poachers and other bad guys. Guest stars included Julie Harris, Jock Mahoney, James Earl Jones, Ethel Merman, Simon Oakland and Diana Ross, among others. The series was so successful he even starred in two movies made from that series in 1970. Ely claims that he refused to use a stunt double in his vine-swinging or animal fights, and as a result he was often injured on the set. It has been noted by Tarzan fans that Ely’s physical appearance and dialogue were much more like those of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ character than could be said for any other Tarzan.

In 1975, Ron Ely won the sought-after role of Doc Savage for George Pal’s 1975 motion-picture of the same name. While fans of the pulp magazines don’t feel the movie lives up to the expectations of the printed page, it’s still a fun film. During the late thirties, Doc Savage and his five Amazing Adventurers are sucked into the mystery of Doc’s father disappearing in the wilds of South America. The maniacal Captain Seas tries to thwart them at every turn as they travel to the country of Hidalgo to investigate Doc’s father’s death and uncover a vast horde of Incan gold. It was reported that a sequel had been filmed in the Lake Tahoe area simultaneously with the principal photography for the first Doc Savage movie, but the sequel was never completed because of the poor box office for that first film. George Pal, famous for The Time Machine (1960) and War of the Worlds (1953), passed away shortly after this movie was released in theaters, possibly another reason why a sequel was never completed.

On Friday, August 10th, at 10 PM, pulp art scholar David Saunders will be offering a previously unknown short silent film of famed Edgar Rice Burroughs illustrator J. Allen St. John during his presentation on the artist.
David discovered the footage while researching an obscure art club in Chicago.

While double-checking all his ERB facts with a Burroughs scholar, David realized that no one in that fan community had ever seen the St. John footage.

In the past year, the pulp community lost two, relatively young and active members
David Burton and Howard Hopkins.

David was an accomplished artist, writer, and poet whose work appeared in
many fanzines and pulp-related books.
He was a gentle soul, a humble man, a talented artist, and a good friend. He will be sorely missed.

Howard Hopkins became involved with the pulp community through his fanzine, GOLDEN PERILS.
In later years, he became a published author. He wrote over seventy horror stories,
Westerns (using the pseudonym Lance Howard), and the children’s series The Chloe Files.
There was a vitality, a strength, and an ever present energy to Howard’s work.

On Saturday, August 11th at 3:30 PM, please join author Win Scott Eckert and
Wild Cat Books publisher Ron Hanna as they celebrate
the lives of these two fine men who left us far too early.

You don’t need to speak French to enjoy Rick Lai’s presentation,
"The French Connection: How French Literature May Have Influenced American Pulp Heroes,"
but you certainly need to come armed with an open mind.
Join "PulpFest 2012" at 8 PM, August 9th for this unique presentation and
the start of the convention’s exceptional programming schedule.


About a month back, PulpFest 2012 was very proud to announce that we’d be selling
longtime fan, scholar, and collector Al Tonik’s substantial collection of pulps, paperbacks,
hardcovers, dime novels, comic books, fanzines, and, particularly, reference books.

Now that we have begun cataloging Albert's substantial holdings,
it has become apparent that we must take a couple of years to work through the collection.
Therefore, only a portion–still rather substantial–will be put up for bid at our 2012 Saturday Night Auction.

In order to thank the PulpFest membership for their patience,
Al has decided to sell one of his most prized possessions–
a recreation of the November 1934 front cover art to The Phantom Detective,
painted by the original artist, Rafael DeSoto.

Visit http://www.pulpfest.com/2012/07/24/rafael-desoto-painting-to-be-sold-at-auction/
for further details, including a photo of the painting and replica of the pulp.


Pulp fiction authors survived by being fast.
Beginning at 4:30 PM on Thursday, August 9th, pulp historian and publisher John Locke
will discuss the complex working conditions faced by the army of writers who labored at breakneck speed
to provide millions of words—all at 1- to 2-cents apiece.

This lecture will take place at the Thompson Library, 1858 Neil Avenue Mall,
on the campus of Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.
It is free and open to the public.
It is co-sponsored by the Aldus Society and the Rare Books and
Manuscripts Library of the Ohio State University Libraries, in conjunction with Pulpfest 2012.

In addition to Mr. Locke’s lecture, the Thompson Library will be hosting a small exhibit of
Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard items culled from the university’s collections,
including some typescripts of Howard’s poetry.
It will be held in the Special Collections display area on the first floor of the library.

Further details can be found at www.pulpfest.com.


They were called scribes, word slingers, hacks, and penny-a-worders.
But perhaps the most favored term, especially among the men and women who labored for the
bloody pulps, was fictioneer or, more specifically, a fiction writer, particularly a
prolific creator of commercial or pulp fiction.

Since 2009, PulpFest has been celebrating today's fictioneers with afternoon reading by "New Pulp" writers.
We'll continue that practice in 2012 beginning with Christopher Paul Carey,
the author licensed by the estate of Philip José Farmer to continue the
Science-Fiction Grandmaster's Khokarsa series (begun in HADON OF ANCIENT OPAR and FLIGHT TO OPAR).

On Friday, 08/10, at 1 PM, Chris will start off our "New Fictioneers" readings.
He'll be reading from THE SONG OF KWASIN (which he co-authored with Farmer) and EXILES OF KHO.
In addition, at 11 AM on the same day, Chris will be signing the entire limited edition print run of
EXILES OF KHO. You can learn more details by visiting www.pulpfest.com.


In October 1912, Edgar Rice Burroughs introduced readers of
THE ALL-STORY magazine to "Tarzan of the Apes."
100 years later, that name still resonates across the globe.

Stop by the PulpFest website for a look at PulpFest's Tarzan programming.
Our post "Tarzan: A Hero for the Ages" is now online.
You'll also be able to see a post on THE NEW ADVENTURES OF TARZAN,
the one and only Tarzan film that Burroughs produced.

PulpFest is very pleased to announce that illustrators Jim & Ruth Keegan,
best known for their comic strip series "The Adventures of Two-Gun Bob,"
published by Dark Horse Comics, will be appearing at the "Summer’s Great Pulp Con" in August.
Jim & Ruth, along with their friend Mark Schultz, will be helping PulpFest 2012 to celebrate
the 80th anniversary of Robert E. Howard’s Conan of Cimmeria.

In addition to their celebrated comic strip version of Howard's life, the Keegans have illustrated
Howard's fiction for Wandering Star, Del Rey Books, and The Robert E. Howard Foundation.

Jim, Ruth, and Mark will be appearing in PulpFest’s dealers’ room where they will have some of their Howard-related work on display. On Saturday evening, August 11th, the three artists will discuss the artistic challenges of illustrating Howard’s work and will present an historical overview of seven decades of Conan art.

Please visit http://www.pulpfest.com/programming/other-guests/ for more on Jim & Ruth Keegan
and Mark Schultz. PulpFest will run from August 9th through 12th.

Men or monsters? What were those thirteen hulking brutes Professor Maxon had created in his laboratory? Soulless, malformed, brainless they were, nevertheless composed of flesh and blood and endowed with the spark of Life. Only Number 13 was the redeeming feature of this grewsome experiment for he was a perfect specimen of a man but he, too, was soulless. Unconsciously he was the cause of the most diabolical plan Professor Maxon had yet concocted--his beautiful daughter Virginia was to marry this monster! Very effectively has Mr. Burroughs used the age old quest for the secret of Life as the theme of this remarkable story. And he has also created a powerful new character, Bulan the Mighty.

In far Cambodia, where the Khmer kings built their mighty temples and vanished from the earth with their millions of subjects hundreds of years ago, leaving no trace upon the written pages of history, are secrets yet undivulged to man, jungles that even natives never enter. Into such went Gordon King. What he found there you will find in the pages of this book: stupendous temples guarded by priests of the great god Siva, the Destroyer; kings and dancing girls and warriors in brass; tigers and elephants; enemies, friends, and—the Jungle Girl. He found hunger and thirst and suffering and danger and sickness; he found adventure and, at last, a great love. But before that came he wandered almost naked in the savage jungle, taking his chances with other hunting beasts. In armor of brass he served as a warrior of the Leper King, fighting the King’s enemies from the howdah of a war elephant.

SWINGING the princess to the window sill Barney fastened the rope about her and signaled to Joseph on the floor above. She was speedily raised to safety. But before Barney could escape by the same means, the door behind him burst open. Soldiers poured into the room. Shouting to Joseph and the princess to flee, Barney leaped outward. His body was heard to splash in the waters of the moat. So runs one of the thrilling adventures of Barney Custer in the kingdom of Lutha, where the American, owing to a strange likeness, was mistaken for the Mad King. Imprisoned in a castle, captured by bandits, stood up before a firing squad, Barney faced death in a dozen different forms. Within a short time he was forced to assume the dictatorship of all Lutha for forty-eight hours. Then came plots and counterplots, battles, intrigues, treachery, and a hundred other elements to make Barney’s position precarious and THE MAD KING a story of high interest.

For the most part the scene of THE ETERNAL LOVER is laid in the Stone Age. Nu, the hero of the book, was a mighty hunter, famous even among the mighty hunters of his day. With his flint-headed spear and his crude knife he did not hesitate to fight single handed the great cave bear, the colossal mammoth, the ferocious saber-tooth tiger and other giant animals and reptiles of the tertiary period. Nat-ul was the belle of the tribe, greatly desired by all the young men, but Nat-ul loved only Nu and, it is the story of the love of Nu and Nat-ul through the ages which is told here. Weird, thrilling and mysterious, are the glimpses of pre-historic life. Brave, resourceful, valiant and daring is Nu, the perfect lover. Graceful and beautiful is Nat-ul, the primitive maiden. And finally, THE ETERNAL LOVER is from the pen of the man who wrote TARZAN OF THE APES, the most popular author of romantic fiction that ever lived.

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

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

BLACK AMAZON OF MARS
Cover for Sequential Pulp's adaptation of Leigh Brackett's BLACK AMAZON OF MARS. Written by Mark Ellis and illustrated by Reno Maniquis. From Sequential Pulp/Dark Horse Comics. Artwork © Reno Maniquis.
Sequential Pulp is in talks with Mark Ellis and Ronn Sutton about another Brackett character. "Citadel of Lost Ships" is an awesome Brackett story with a Firefly/Serenity type of vibe and a Malcolm Reynolds type hero. It's got your alien planet, beautiful alien warrior babe, spaceship fights and a lot of action set on a bizarre space station. It should run 44-48 pages in the Sequential Pulp novelette format.



Teel James Glenn
HEADLINE GHOULS (The further adventures of Maxi & Moxie)
Now available!

Reporter Moxie Donnovan has followed his actor-wife to Hollywood and taken a job as a studio flack, but he hasn't lost his eye for a story... and Hollywood is full of stories. It's 1938, Hitler rules Germany and is supporting U.S. Nazi groups, the studio system is in full force, America still suffers from the Great Depression, and hard-boiled reporter heroes are the order of the day. HEADLINE GHOULS follows Moxie, along with his hard-dancing, hard-drinking wife Maxi, as they confront Hollywood blackmailers, Nazi cells, occult Nazi gangs who use human sacrifice, New Orleans voodoo, and Germany's attempts to infiltrate Hollywood. Moxie and Maxi play off against each other with quick dialogue, an assembly of interesting friends, and the glamour of the studio system in its heyday.

Author Teel James Glenn recreates the "pulp" style with over-the-top characters, bizarre situations that combine mystery, nazis and the occult, the hard-charging reporter hero, and plenty of fists, guns and drinking. I especially like the way Glenn pairs the fact-hungry reporter Moxie with his charming wife Maxi. Maxi, a Broadway dancer turned Hollywood actor, is nobody's idea of a damsel in distress. She can throw back drinks with the best of them and she's as likely to rescue Moxie as he is to save her.

A group of humans stumbles through the portal: a cocky movie make-up man who hits on the wrong woman, a Vietnam vet whose nightmares make living a chore, a private detective on the strangest case of his career, a crippled cop and a burger store manager who loves to go LARPing. One of them has to show the Queen of the Fae what true love is or they will perish in the greater darkness that is growing day by day.

William Preston
A new "Old Man" story is now available!


"Unearthed" is here! The next story in William Preston's pulpish "Old Man" sequence is now available. If you missed the earlier stories, "Helping Them Take the Old Man Down" and "Clockworks," you can buy them together in e-book format at either Barnes & Noble or Amazon.

Like "Clockworks," "Unearthed" is a prequel, a novella that takes our hero back to 1925 and his first, life-changing adventure—and resolving some mysteries raised in the previous stories. Two more stories, sequels to the original, are in the works.


Thanks to William Preston for the tip!
