HEADLIGHTS HONEYS: THE "PERFECT PAIR" IN VINTAGE PAPERBACKS, PULPS, AND COMICS
(Writers) Monte Beauchamp, Steven Heller

Once celebrated by skilled painters and sculptors throughout the history of art, with the advent of the Industrial Age and assembly line production, scores of "mams" merchandisers soon got in on the act. From "boob" aprons, t-shirts, sweat-shirts, and baseball caps to salt and pepper shakers, mugs, coffee cups, and shot glasses, from greeting cards, books, and periodicals to candied treats, from jewelry to novelty gag gifts, billions of dollars are generated annually by the objectification of breasts. There was a time, however, when their low-budget portrayal in comic books, paperbacks, and pulps came under fervid assault, and effectively squelched, by the media censors. Headlight Honeys assembles dozens of rare, salacious cover examples and delivers the scoop on this harrowing, pre-code era in American publishing.

Hardcover, 6x8, 176 pages, Full Color, $29.95, On sale July 5.

by Heidi Ruby Miller
Now available!

In Philip José Farmer’s novel Two Hawks from Earth, Native American pilot Roger Two Hawks flew through his first “gate” while on a bombing run over Romania during World War II. The gate brought him to Earth 2, a world where the Americas never existed. Since then he has continued to fight battles on Earth after Earth, each more strange than the next.

In Heidi Ruby Miller’s short story “Dakota’s Gate” (Worlds of Philip José Farmer 3), set on Earth 3, North America never advanced past stone tools and rock shelters. But that’s where Two Hawks met another gate traveler, Dakota Cummings. It was Dakota, a woman turned friend and lover, who pulled him through a gate to her Earth, the most alien and deadly of all.

Earth 4. Two hundred years in the future. A war thirty-six thousand feet underwater. Two Hawks must draw upon all he’s learned during his gate travels in order to survive war between technologically advanced humans and their far-future hybrid cousins. This time more than just his and Dakota’s lives are at stake—the fate of an entire world is in his hands.

Featuring cover art by Mark Wheatley, an introduction by Christopher Paul Carey, and the short story “Dakota’s Gate” as a prelude, Man of War is a 24,500-word novella full of the action and adventure you’d expect of Philip José Farmer’s Roger Two Hawks.

Man of War will be published simultaneously in both hardcover and paperback signed limited editions!

Farmerphile: The Magazine of Philip José Farmer was a quarterly fanzine that ran fifteen issues from July 2005 to January 2009. Michael Croteau served as Publisher for all fifteen issues; Christopher Paul Carey and Paul Spiteri coedited the first ten issues, while Spiteri and Win Scott Eckert coedited the last five. Thanks to the generosity of Philip José Farmer and his “Magic Filing Cabinet,” Farmerphile published—for the first time anywhere—short stories (mostly not science fiction), excerpts, articles, speeches, and letters written by Farmer. It even serialized the novel Up from the Bottomless Pit (not included in this collection, but forthcoming from Meteor House).

Farmerphile also contained articles and appreciations from Farmer’s fans and from his fellow science fiction authors, from critiques of his work to stories of personal encounters, and everything between. A complete list of the original contents of all fifteen issues can be found here.

Hardcover Limited Edition
Now the hard part: narrowing down so much content into one “Best of” collection. This was much harder than it sounds, as nearly all the content was worthy of inclusion. So, we focused on broadly covering as much ground as possible, as well as including pieces that touched on Farmer’s personal life. Assembled here is a wealth of information about one of the greatest science fiction writers of all time along, with some of his earliest writing.

The Best of Farmerphile is available in two editions: a Trade Paperback and a Hardcover Limited Edition. The hardcover is not “officially” a signed limited edition, but when the book debuts at PulpFest/FarmerCon XII in late July 2017, we will get as many contributors on hand as possible to sign it before we ship the books to those preordered (shipping will occur immediately after PulpFest/FarmerCon XII).


PREORDERING:
The trade paperback edition is $29 (plus shipping).
The hardcover limited edition is $45 (plus shipping).
Or you can preorder them together for only $67—that’s $7 off (plus you’ll save even more with combined shipping)!

Preorder early to ensure you get a copy of the limited edition hardcover.
As always, the print run on the limited edition will be determined by the number of preorders received.
Not many copies beyond those reserved will be printed.
NOTE: due to the complexities of publishing rights, no ebook edition will be produced!

The son of the latest victim seeks the help of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, who discover a common thread that  ties together the murders--and the persons responsible.

Bizarre geometries--based on ancient schematics--point to members of a secluded cult. These men and women build strange constructs that will enable other-worldly creatures to enter our dimension, seeking sustenance. They are gaining so much power that even Moriarty fears that his empire is at risk—to the point that he seeks an unholy alliance with his eternal foe.

Now available for pre-order!

The publication of the fifteen-year correspondence of two of the titans of weird fiction, H. P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) and Clark Ashton Smith (1893–1961), is a landmark event. This mammoth volume, containing 330 letters written between 1922 and 1937, allows an unprecedented glimpse into the lives, minds, and creative instincts of two brilliant writers who lived a continent apart and never met, but who shared a fascination with the weird and the cosmic and had the highest regard for each other’s work.

Lovecraft initiated the correspondence by writing a fan letter to Smith, who in 1922 was already an established poet. A warm exchange of views ensued; and as Lovecraft gained early success in Weird Tales, he urged Smith to send his poetry to the magazine. Smith, meanwhile, repeatedly read Lovecraft’s stories in manuscript, and by the late 1920s he himself had begun to write tales of fantasy and science fiction that found ready acceptance in the pulp magazines of the day.

But the two authors were far more than pulp fictioneers. They held profound and at times conflicting views on the nature and purpose of weird fiction: Lovecraft admitted that he was a “prose realist,” whereas Smith claimed that “I am far happier when I can create everything in a story.” Their discussions on the theory of the weird tale are some of the most illuminating pages in this book.

Smith and Lovecraft shared many mutual acquaintances—Donald Wandrei, August Derleth, Robert E. Howard, R. H. Barlow, among others. Their accounts of meeting these and other colleagues, and their responses to other historical and cultural events of their time, present a fascinating window into the culture of the 1920s and 1930s.

The volume—the result of decades of research in accumulating and annotating the letters—has been meticulously edited by David E. Schultz and S. T. Joshi, two of the leading authorities on Lovecraft. Aside from an introduction and exhaustive notes, the editors have included in an appendix an array of additional documents that shed light on the Smith-Lovecraft relationship, including the complete “Boiling Point” letter column from the Fantasy Fan.

He is right.

Thrust into the chaos of a new invasion, a journalist - sister-in-law to Walter Jenkins - must survive, escape and report on the war.

The Massacre of Mankind has begun.

THE ART OF THE PULPS
by Doug Ellis, Ed Hulse, and Robert Weinberg
Foreword by F. Paul Wilson


A team of experts in each of the ten major Pulp genres, from action Pulps to spicy Pulps and more, chart for the first time the complete history of Pulp magazines–the stories and their writers, the graphics and their artists, and, of course, the publishers, their market, and readers.

Each chapter in the book, which is illustrated with more than 400 examples of the best Pulp graphics (many from the Editors’ collections—among the world’s largest) is organized in a clear and accessible way, starting with an introductory overview of the genre, followed by a selection of the best covers and interior graphics, organized chronologically through the chapter. All images are fully captioned (many are in essence "nutshell" histories in themselves). Two special features in each chapter focus on topics of particular interest (such as extended profiles of Daisy Bacon, Pulp author and editor of Love Story, the hugely successful romance Pulp, and of Harry Steeger, co-founder of Popular Publications in 1930 and originator of the "Shudder Pulp" genre).

With an overall Introduction on "The Birth of the Pulps" by Doug Ellis, and with two additional chapters focusing on the great Pulp writers and the great Pulp artists, The Art of the Pulps covers every aspect of this fascinating genre; it is the first definitive visual history of the Pulps.
Hardcover, 240 pages, $39.99

From co-author Doug Ellis:
Coming this September will be a new book on the pulps, co-edited by Bob Weinberg, Ed Hulse and myself, called "The Art of the Pulps." It's being put together by the same folks who did the great "The Art of Horror" by Stephen Jones in 2015. The book is an illustrated history of the pulps, with over 400 cover images (and some interiors) reproduced. Bob and I started on this project back in January 2016, and when he passed away last September, Ed Hulse graciously stepped in to provide his expertise.

We broke up the pulp universe into ten genres, ach of which has a chapter devoted to it, as well as chapters on the great pulp artists, the great pulp authors, the birth of the pulps and the end of the pulps. While Bob, Ed and I wrote several of the chapters, we enlisted a Murderer's Row of experts to write various of them -- Mike Ashley for SF, Will Murray for hero, Michelle Nolan for sports, Laurie Powers for love, David Saunders for the great artists, John Wooley for detective and Tom Roberts for aviation/war. And F. Paul Wilson was kind enough to contribute the foreword!

In addition to the introductory text for each chapter, each of the genre chapters has two features focusing on a particular aspect of the topic. For example, the love chapter has features on Daisy Bacon, the legendary editor of Love Story Magazine, and on the western love pulps, which started with Ranch Romances, while the hero pulp chapter has features on The Shadow/Doc Savage and on the villain pulps. Similarly, the great authors chapter has a feature focusing on H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard, while the great artists' feature covers Norman Saunders and Walter Baumhofer.

Each of the images is accompanied by lengthy caption text, which may discuss the magazine, the artist, the publisher, an author or something else relevant to the image selected. Beyond using material selected from our own collections, we need to thank Sheila Vanderbeek, John Gunnison and Michelle Nolan for helping us obtain scans of various rare pulps. I know I'm prejudiced about this, but having seen the layouts, I can safely say that this will be a beautiful book!

Although it won't be out for another six months, as of a few days ago, Amazon and some other online bookstores began listing it for pre-order.

Clive Cussler: THE ROMANOV RANSOM (A Sam and Remi Fargo Adventure)
by Clive Cussler, Robin Burcell

Treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo's search for a Romanov fortune brings them into perilous contact with an ambitious neo-Nazi clan, in the thrilling adventure from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.

In 1918, a ransom of enormous size was paid to free the Romanovs from the Bolsheviks, but, as history knows, the Romanovs died anyway. And the ransom? During World War II, the Nazis stole it from the Russians, and after that--it vanished. Until now.

When a modern-day kidnapping captures the attention of husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo, the couple soon learn that these long-lost riches may be back in play, held in trust by the descendants of a Nazi guerrilla faction called the Werewolves. It is their mission to establish the Fourth Reich, and their time is coming soon.

As the Fargos follow the trail across Europe, Northern Africa, and South America, they know only one thing. This quest is greater than anything they have ever done--it is their chance to make someone answer for unspeakable crimes, and to prevent them from happening again.

The Lone Ranger on Radio, Film and Television - Coming Fall 2017!

The Lone Ranger has endured as an iconic figure in American popular culture, from his 1933 premier as a radio serial hero through a highly-rated television series (1949–1957) to a 2013 feature film. Created by script writer Fran Striker and radio station owner George W. Trendle, the character was meant to embody courage, fair play and honesty, and writers had to adhere to specific guidelines: “he never smokes ... he uses precise speech ... he never shoots to kill.” The popularity of the Ranger and his companion Tonto inspired later crime fighting duos like Batman and Robin, and The Green Hornet and Kato. This book examines the franchise in detail, with summaries and production details of the original radio episodes.

BLACK WINGS OF CTHULHU (VOLUME 5) TPB - Coming January 16!
by S. T. Joshi

Twenty new short stories in the tradition of the famed writer H. P. Lovecraft, produced by a lineup of authors considered to be among his most skilled and dedicated acolytes. Authors include Caitlin R. Kiernan, Donald Tyson, Darrell Schweitzer, and Nancy Kilpatrick, and the stories range from scientists who come face to face with the appalling implications of their discoveries, to the psychological aberrations of characters as they come face-to-face with the bizarre. Black Wings of Cthulhu 5 will take its place as a pioneering anthology that shows how the work of H. P. Lovecraft is inexhaustibly rich in the inspiration it can provide to contemporary writers of weird fiction.

CITY OF ENDLESS NIGHT (Agent Pendergast series) - Coming January 9!
by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child


What begins as a manhunt for the missing daughter of a wealthy tech billionaire becomes something altogether different when the young woman's body is discovered in an abandoned warehouse in Kew Gardens, Queens, the head nowhere to be found. Soon it becomes clear there are at least two killers on the loose--one responsible for the young woman's death, another responsible for the mutilation. A pair of such dastardly killers requires a team of equally talented investigators. Luckily, both Vincent D'Agosta and Special Agent Pendergast are back in town.

D'Agosta hopes that this latest case will distract Pendergast from Constance Green's decision to depart New York for Tibet after the events of THE OBSIDIAN CHAMBER--and provide Pendergast the opportunity to work a case back on his home turf for the first time in years. But neither is prepared to face a team of killers as diabolical as this. It will take all of Pendergast and D'Agosta's intelligence and strength simply to match wits with their latest adversaries--let alone stay alive.

LOVECRAFT: THE MYTH OF CTHULHU
by Esteban Maroto

Illustrated in haunting black and white over 30 years ago, these comics are re-presented in a new edition, adapting three of H.P. Lovecraft's most famous stories involving the Cthulhu Mythos.

"The Nameless City" is considered the first story of Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, detailing the discovery of an ancient city in the deserts of the Arabian Peninsula built by an unnamed race of beings of reptilian appearance.

In "The Festival" a man arrives at the sea town of Kingsport, Massachusetts during Christmas but finds a place eerily empty and centuries out of date.

"The Call of Cthulhu" is perhaps Lovecraft's most famous story, describing a man who after finding the notes of his grand-uncle is lead on a journey around the world in search of this mysterious and disturbing phenomenon.

JAMES BOND: COLONEL SUN - Coming in March!
By Kingsley Amis

The first James Bond novel published after the death of Ian Fleming in 1964, this classic thriller follows James Bond on a mission to a small Aegean island to track down M’s kidnappers―the malign Colonel Sun Liang-tan and his ex-Nazi commander cohort, the deadly Von Richter.

Lunch, a quiet game of golf, a routine social call on M, who is convalescing in his Regency house in Berkshire―the life of secret agent James Bond has begun to fall into a pattern that threatens complacency, until the sunny afternoon when M is kidnapped and all of his house staff savagely murdered.

The action ricochets across the globe, but quickly enough lands Bond on a volcanic Greek island, where the malign Colonel Sun Liang-tan of the People's Liberation Army of China is collaborating with the ex-Nazi commander, Von Richter, in planning a world-dominating conspiracy. The stakes have never been higher, nor the dangers more complex. Bond’s allies―the beautiful, brown-haired Greek agent, Ariadne Alexandrou; along with a tough-as-nails former World War II resistance fighter―are quickly neutralized by the venomous Colonel Sun.  Alone and unarmed, faces off against these two nefarious villains.

Stripped of all professional aids, James Bond faces the deadly devices of Colonel Sun and his Nazi cohort in a test that brings him to the verge of his physical abilities.
