DRAGON TEETH: A NOVEL - Now available!
by Michael Crichton

The year is 1876. Warring Indian tribes still populate America’s western territories even as lawless gold-rush towns begin to mark the landscape. In much of the country it is still illegal to espouse evolution. Against this backdrop two monomaniacal paleontologists pillage the Wild West, hunting for dinosaur fossils, while surveilling, deceiving and sabotaging each other in a rivalry that will come to be known as the Bone Wars.

Into this treacherous territory plunges the arrogant and entitled William Johnson, a Yale student with more privilege than sense. Determined to survive a summer in the west to win a bet against his arch-rival, William has joined world-renowned paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh on his latest expedition.  But when the paranoid and secretive Marsh becomes convinced that William is spying for his nemesis, Edwin Drinker Cope, he abandons him in Cheyenne, Wyoming, a locus of crime and vice. William is forced to join forces with Cope and soon stumbles upon a discovery of historic proportions.  With this extraordinary treasure, however, comes exceptional danger, and William’s newfound resilience will be tested in his struggle to protect his cache, which pits him against some of the West’s most notorious characters.

A page-turner that draws on both meticulously researched history and an exuberant imagination, Dragon Teeth is based on the rivalry between real-life paleontologists Cope and Marsh; in William Johnson readers will find an inspiring hero only Michael Crichton could have imagined. Perfectly paced and brilliantly plotted, this enormously winning adventure is destined to become another Crichton classic.

FULL WOLF MOON - Coming May 16!
by Lincoln Child

The New York Times bestselling author of The Forgotten Room and Deep Storm is back with a new thriller that follows the trail of a killer who cannot exist...featuring Jeremy Logan, the renowned investigator of the supernatural and fantastic.

Legends, no matter how outlandish, are often grounded in reality. This has been the guiding principle behind the exhilarating career of Jeremy Logan, the "enigmologist"--an investigator who specializes in analyzing phenomena that have no obvious explanation--previously seen in The Forgotten Room, The Third Gate, and Deep Storm. Logan has often found himself in situations where keeping an open mind could mean the difference between life and death, and that has never been more true than now.

Logan travels to an isolated writers' retreat deep in the Adirondacks to finally work on his book when the remote community is rocked by the grisly discovery of a dead hiker on Desolation Mountain. The body has been severely mauled, but the unusual savagery of the bite and claw marks call into question the initial suspicions of a wild bear attack. When Logan is asked to help investigate, he discovers no shortage of suspects capable of such an attack--and no shortage of locals willing to point the finger and spread incredible rumors. One rumor, too impossible to believe, has even the forest ranger believing in werewolves. As Logan gets to know the remote deep-woods landscape, including a respected woman scientist still struggling with the violent loss of her father in these very woods, Logan realizes he's up against something he has never seen before.

His most action-packed and white-knuckled novel to date, Full Wolf Moon is the perfect combination of exotic locales, provocative science, and raw action that make for a deeply entertaining Lincoln Child blockbuster.

Coming in May!

The friendship of Clark Ashton Smith and Howard Phillips Lovecraft began in letters in 1922 and progressed over the years as each became famous to the readers of Weird Tales and other pulps of the 1920s and '30s. It began with Lovecraft, having been shown a few of Smith's poems by another friend, writing to Smith, and it continued up to Lovecraft's death -- the manuscript of his poem, “To Clark Ashton Smith, Esq., upon His Fantastic Tales, Verses, Pictures, and Sculptures”, was found on HPL's desk, apparently the last non-letter item HPL ever wrote.

Lovecraft was attracted to Smith's poetic style, transmundane focus, and sardonic wit; Smith liked Lovecraft's sweeping vistas of time and space and his personal philosophy of what's been called “cosmic indifferentism”: the belief that humanity is no more significant in the universe than a grain of sand, a blade of grass, or a solar flare. HPL encouraged CAS to try his hand at fiction, and the two were soon passing drafts of stories back and forth for comment.

For the first time, both sides of the surviving correspondence between these two supremely significant figures in 20th century weird literature are presented, forming a literary “conversation” that ranges from topics of contemporary art and literature to the doings of the amateur press associations to which they both belonged; frank evaluations of each other’s literary (and in the case of Smith, graphic and sculptural) achievements, and surprising personal revelations unrivalled in other phases of their written output.

As in all previous volumes in the Collected Letters series, these letters have been meticulously edited by David E. Schultz and S. T. Joshi, two of the leading authorities on Lovecraft and Smith. Rounding out the volume are appendices of writings by the two correspondents, shedding light on their relationship; an exhaustive bibliography; and a comprehensive index.

The Soviet battle cruiser Simbirsk, which launched in June 1940 and was reported sunk in 1944 with the loss of all hands, is still sailing the open sea.

January of 2017: American Los Angeles class submarine U.S.S. Houston is tracking a surface target that is not listed as part of the Russian navy’s response to the NATO maneuvers. What they find will set in motion the answers to one of the great mysteries of World War II. With the Russian navy bearing down on the Houston and international tensions running high, the United States Navy declares the Soviet-era derelict legal salvage under international law.

With the world’s most powerful navies going toe-to-toe in the North Atlantic, the President of the United States calls upon the one organization that has a chance to figure out why this ship is in this time, in this place―Department 5656, also known as the Event Group.

When the Group arrives, they are confronted by three warships of the Russian Navy who have come to claim Russian property. The two groups meet and soon discover that the ancient battle cruiser is not a derelict at all, but fully functional with a mysterious apparatus that sent the original crew to their deaths. In the midst of their warfare in the tossing seas, both navies are sent into a realm of unimaginable terror―an alternate world of water, ice, and death.

The Event Group has a new mission when relics of the fabled Philadelphia Experiment surface in Beyond the Sea, the twelfth thrilling hit in New York Times bestselling author David L. Golemon's Event Group series.

Hard Case Crime
An unused plot for Pierce Brosnan’s 007 has resurfaced - as a novel!

Coming in June 2017!

Back in the 1990s, Eon Productions worked with a number of writers to develop the story for the follow-up to Goldeneye. One of those writers was Donald Westlake, legendary author of over 100 crime novels, the perhaps most famous of which were the Parker books (under his pseudonym of Richard Stark).

In 1995, before Goldeneye was even released, Westlake turned into Eon two treatments for “Bond 18.” Both his treatments apparently used as their backdrop Hong Kong’s transfer of sovereignty to China. In one of the treatments, Westlake had 007 facing off against Gideon Goodbread, an American businessman who planned to level Hong Kong after robbing its banks – a revenge scheme for the death of his missionary parents at the hands of the Red Chinese. Westlake described his Bond villain as “John Goodman with a Southern accent”, and likened him to the lead character in Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me. Goodbread commanded an army of Amerasian orphans he called “the Children.”

Westlake floated the following titles for his Bond adventure: Dragonsteeth; Nobody Dies; Forever And A Death; Never Look Back; On Borrowed Time. That last title was prophetic; the time-sensitive nature of the Hong Kong chanegover backdrop was deemed unsuitable, we got Tomorrow Never Dies instead, and Westlake's script was shelved.

Now Hard Case Crime has resurrected this lost story, which at some point Westlake rewrote as a novel - Forever And A Death.

It’s no longer a James Bond story and the details described above may not be included, but the vestigial elements of the story seem to be in place.
As a bonus, the novel will contain an afterword by one of the Bond producers, describing the history of the project.

The cover is by artist Paul Mann.

LOST PLANET HC - Arriving in comic shops June 21!
(Writer/Artist/Cover) Bo Hampton

Somewhere in the dark jungles of the Andes mountains lies a Dimensional Bridge which leads to a violent, medieval world ruled by Magic of the Blackest sort! Fortune hunter  Tyler Flynn enlists fellow ex-pats Ambrose Bierce and Amelia Earhart in a desperate attempt to break free from the diabolical orbit of... the Lost Planet.

The long awaited fantasy opus/reboot Lost Planet from Author/Artist Bo Hampton is returning in a hardcover edition in glorious, living Black and White!

Although The six-issue mini-series from 1984 was printed in color, Hampton's line art was done on craft-tint Duo Shade board-a long gone tonal process not seen since the heyday of E.C. Comics.

The laboriously plotted, and lavishly illustrated, tale draws upon fantasy and classic pulp tropes for inspiration but remains completely unlike anything in comics, before or since.

Features "Old Garfield's Heart" by Robert E. Howard.

Gary Gianni created one of the strangest occult detective teams in comics history: millionaire filmmaker Lawrence St. George and his associate, Benedict, of the venerable guild of Corpus Monstrum.

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.

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).

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!

From the 1940s to the ’70s, Reed Crandall brought a unique and masterful style to American comic art. Using an illustrator's approach on everything he touched, Crandall gained a reputation as the “artist’s artist” through his skillful interpretations of Golden Age super-heroes Doll Man, The Ray, and Blackhawk (his signature character); horror and sci-fi for the legendary EC Comics line; Warren Publishing’s Creepy, Eerie, and Blazing Combat; the THUNDER Agents and Edgar Rice Burroughs characters; and even Flash Gordon for King Features.

Comic art historian Roger Hill has compiled a complete and extensive history of Crandall’s life and career, from his early years and major successes, through his tragic decline and passing in 1982.

This hardcover includes never-before-seen photos, a wealth of rare and unpublished artwork, and over eighty thousand words of insight into one of the true illustrators of the comics.

A series of grisly murders rocks London. At each location, only a jumble of bones remains, along with a bizarre bone sphere covered in arcane symbols. 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.

THE MASSACRE OF MANKIND: Sequel to The War of the Worlds - Coming August 22!
by Stephen Baxter

It has been 14 years since the Martians invaded England. The world has moved on, always watching the skies but content that we know how to defeat the Martian menace. Machinery looted from the abandoned capsules and war-machines has led to technological leaps forward. The Martians are vulnerable to earth germs. The Army is prepared.

So when the signs of launches on Mars are seen, there seems little reason to worry. Unless you listen to one man, Walter Jenkins, the narrator of Wells' book. He is sure that the Martians have learned, adapted, understood their defeat.

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.

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.

September 2017

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.

Night Shade Books

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. His dark and unsettling short stories and novels were shaped in large part by personal experience (a professional merchant mariner for much of his life, many of Hodgson’s tales are set at sea), and his work evokes a disturbing sense of the amorphous and horrific unknown.

A talented young actress becomes fatally ensnared in London's mysterious and glittery drug culture of the early 20th century.

Trina Robbins' graphic novel adaptation of Sax Rohmer's sensational 1919 novel, DOPE was both the first novel to speak openly about the world's international drug trade, and the first story to center around the death of a celebrity by drug overdose. As for the art, it is considered by many (including Trina herself) to be her best work ever as an illustrator.

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.
