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.

THE COLLECTED FICTION OF WILLIAM HOPE HODGSON, VOLUME 1


William Hope Hodgson was, like his contemporaries Algernon Blackwood and Arthur Machen, one of the most important, prolific, and influential fantasists of the early twentieth century.

ABOVE THE TIMBERLINE - Coming October 24!
by Gregory Manchess  (Author, Illustrator)


From renowned artist Gregory Manchess comes a lavishly painted novel about the son of a famed polar explorer searching for his stranded father, and a lost city buried under snow in an alternate future.

When it started to snow, it didn’t stop for 1,500 years. The Pole Shift that ancient climatologists talked about finally came, the topography was ripped apart and the weather of the world was changed—forever. Now the Earth is covered in snow, and to unknown depths in some places.

In this world, Wes Singleton leaves the academy in search of his father, the famed explorer Galen Singleton, who was searching for a lost city until Galen’s expedition was cut short after being sabotaged. But Wes believes his father is still alive somewhere above the timberline.

Fully illustrated with over 120 pieces of full-page artwork throughout, Above the Timberline is a stunning and cinematic combination of art and novel.

Hidden inside impregnable rock walls lay a prehistoric world, filled with terrifying creatures, man-eaters from every era of time, and races of savage, murderous primitives from each rung of the evolutionary ladder. Somehow, the island was never again found, and the stories of the survivors of Caspak were considered fantasy. Today, an expedition has been launched by Tyler's great-great-great-granddaughter Abby, a quest to find concrete evidence of Bowen Tyler's adventure. But what she and her research team will uncover is something far deadlier and more shocking than they could ever have imagined, as the modern day explorers find themselves thrust into The Land That Time Forgot!

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.

THE DEMON CROWN: A SIGMA FORCE NOVEL (Sigma Force Novels) - Coming December 5!
by James Rollins

Off the coast of Brazil, a team of scientists discovers a horror like no other, an island where all life has been eradicated, consumed and possessed by a species beyond imagination. Before they can report their discovery, a mysterious agency attacks the group, killing them all, save one, an entomologist, an expert on venomous creatures, Professor Ken Matsui from Cornell University.

Strangest of all, this inexplicable threat traces back to a terrifying secret buried a century ago beneath the National Mall: a cache of bones preserved in amber. The artifact was hidden away by a cabal of scientists―led by Alexander Graham Bell―to protect humankind. But they dared not destroy it, for the object also holds an astonishing promise for the future: the very secret of life after death.

Yet, nothing stays buried forever. An ancient horror―dormant in the marrow of those preserved bones―is free once more, nursed and developed into a weapon of incalculable strength and malignancy, ready to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting world.

To stop its spread, Commander Grayson Pierce of Sigma Force must survive a direct attack on the island of Maui. To be there first has always been the core mission of Sigma Force, a covert team forged to be America's front line against emerging threats. But this time, even Sigma may not be able to decipher this deadly mystery, one that traces back to the founding of the Smithsonian Institution.

With each new discovery, the menace they hunt is changing, growing, spreading―adapting and surviving every attempt to stop it from reconquering a world it once ruled. And each transformation makes it stronger . . . and smarter.

Running out of time and options, Commander Grayson Pierce will be forced to make an impossible choice. To eradicate this extinction-level threat and expose those involved, he will have to join forces with Sigma's greatest enemy--the newly resurrected Guild―even it if means sacrificing one of his own.

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.

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.
