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.

(Cover) Puis Calzada (Pulp Homage cover)

With Carson Napier in chains in the technocratic dystopia of Havatoo, power-hungry scientist Varlek Sarseeking seeks to weaponize Carson's ability to project his image great distances. Carson's nemesis is aided by the only other Earthling known to have traveled to Venus-a mysterious woman worshipped as the goddess of fire who holds the secret to turning Carson's ghostly projections into myriad legions of corporeal warriors. As Varlek Sar tries to coax Carson into a devil's bargain, Duare must use all her wits and determination to assemble the bickering factions of Amlot into an alliance against the technologically superior city-state of Havatoo. The stakes couldn't be higher for Carson and his companions. For if Duare fails to unite the factions and Carson succumbs to his enemy's machinations, nothing will stand between Varlek Sar and his megalomaniacal plan to conquer all of Amtor, and after that-the unsuspecting planet Earth.

James Rollins: CRUCIBLE - Coming January 8!

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

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

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

Black Moon: The Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin, Volume Five - Coming March 5!
by Seabury Quinn


The concluding volume in a series collecting the stories of Jules de Grandin, the supernatural detective made famous in the classic pulp magazine Weird Tales.

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

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

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

The fifth volume, Black Moon, includes all the stories from “Suicide Chapel” (1938) to “The Ring of Bastet” (1951), as well as an introduction by George Vanderburgh and Robert Weinberg and a foreword by Stephen Jones.


Hardcover: 512 pages

ROY G. KRENKEL: FATHER OF HEROIC FANTASY - A CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION
by Andrew Steven Damsits and Barry Klugerman

Roy G. Krenkel was one of the most renowned fantasy artists of the 20th century.
His far-reaching influence on artists like Frank Frazetta, Al Williamson, Michael Kaluta and Jeffrey Jones--to name but a few--was immeasurable and cannot be overerstated.

Krenkel illustrated numerous works by Edgar Rice Burroughs, as well as Robert E. Howard, Lin Carter, and more. But many of Krenkel's works--what he called his "Doodles," in a characteristically self-effacing manner--were rarely seen by even his biggest fans. And while many of Roy's doodles were simple drawings, many were finished illustrations done for the pure pleasure of creating art.

Most of the images in this book are published here for the very first time (courtesy of and with the full cooperation of the Krenkel Estate), and nearly all have been painstakingly scanned from the original art (in a manner akin to IDW's Eisner Award-winning Artist's Edition series) with the goal being to showcase Krenkel's gorgeous original art in a way it has never been seen before. While the realms of science-fiction, heroic fantasy, paleontology, and historical reconstruction were particular specialties of Roy's, his pen, brush, and palette knew no boundaries.
