Once again join us on a journey back to an “Age of Aces” as “Battling” Mord Grogan burns through the tortured skies of pre-WWII China. Grogan, an American pilot, commands the all-Chinese “Dragon Squadron” in their battle against the invading Japanese along with his three valiant flight commanders: Monty St. John, the lanky Limey; slender Hank Goyen, the dapper Frog; and last but not least, the imperturbable Ah Im, Grogan’s boyhood chum of old Nanking days, now premier olive-toned ace of the Dragon clan. Never before has the struggle been so fierce or the danger of Oriental treachery so great! Stories include: “Against The Rising Sun” – Flying Aces, May 1932
WWI pilot Robert M. Burtt wrote the fourteen Battling Grogan stories in the early 1930’s for Flying Aces Magazine before becoming well known as the co-creator and writer of aviation-themed radio serials like The Air Adventures of Jimmy Allen, Captain Midnight, Hop Harrigan and Sky King.

The modern literary archetype of the mad doctor is wonderfully incarnated in French proto-science fiction by Dr. Cornelius Kramm, the star of The Mysterious Dr. Cornelius, a sprawling saga serialized in eighteen volumes in 1912-13, written by the prolific Gustave Le Rouge, author of The Vampires of Mars and The Dominion of the World.
Dr. Cornelius Kramm and his brother, Fritz, rule an international criminal empire called the "Red Hand." Cornelius is a brilliant surgeon, nicknamed the "Sculptor of Human Flesh" because of his diabolical ability to alter people's likenesses through the science of "carnoplasty." He is a cool and calculating man, always scheming, always in control, who enjoys his wealthy surroundings in New York and Paris. His brother Fritz is more of a henchman, a man of action, who rules the Red Hand with an iron fist.
One of Cornelius' top agents is the evil Baruch Jorgell, the son of millionaire Fred Jorgell; Baruch is a sadistic sociopath, who likes to electrocute his victims. Cornelius used his surgical prowess to change the face of Baruch Jorgell, making him unrecognizable.
Cornelius' growing, global, evil web eventually causes the creation of an alliance of heroes, who band together to fight him and, ultimately, defeat the Lords of the Red Hand. These heroes are: Dr. Prosper Bondonnat, an equally brilliant French scientist, biologist and botanist; American billionnaire William Dorgan and his son, Harry Dorgan, who is also in love with the beautiful Isadora Jorgell, Baruch's good-hearted sister; and finally British Lord Burydan, a colorful, freebooting adventurer.
Cornelius Kramm's evil schemes are ultimately defeated after a globe-spanning battle by this alliance of good scientists, lovers, and brave men. However, the ultimate fate of the master villain remains ambiguous... Does he die by his own hand, or does he live to fight another day? Dr. Cornelius remains a man of mystery to the very end...
Gustave Le Rouge (1867-1938) was one of the authors who most embodied the evolution of modern science fiction, moving it away from the juvenile adventures of Jules Verne by incorporating real people with real emotions into his stories, thus bridging the gap between Vernian and Wellsian science fiction.

"I believe we have him," said Cornelius. "Oh, he's well and truly ours now," Fritz agreed, "but he's very headstrong; I fear that he might not be a docile instrument." "Everyone becomes docile when they fall into our hands," the doctor affirmed, with a sinister grimace.

The vaulted hall was lit by a hundred electric lamps, dissimulated by clusters of foliage. Half-dissected cadavers were hidden from view by heavy drapes of orange velvet.

Sax Rohmer (1883-1959) was a celebrated and prolific British writer and the creator of Fu Manchu. He was the author of such famous novels as The Green Eyes of Bast and The Bat Flies Low. What is not well known, however, is that Rohmer was also a prodigious author of short stories of weirdness and terror. Over the course of his career he wrote dozens of stories collected in several volumes that have now become scarce collector’s items.
This volume presents fifteen stories by Rohmer, taken from such rare collections as Tales of Secret Egypt and The Haunting of Low Fennel. They feature Rohmer’s patented mix of exotic settings, supernaturalism, and adventure. Among them are such famous stories as “Tchériapin,” a tale of a mad chemist; “The Curse of a Thousand Kisses,” about a centuries-old curse; “Lord of the Jackals,” a haunting account of love and death in Egypt; and “The Haunting of Low Fennel,” a classic haunted house story. Also included is the full-length novel Brood of the Witch-Queen, one of the finest novels of Egyptian horror ever published.
This signed limited edition is just 300 copies. The dustjacket is the work of David Ho, with the interior illustrations by Swiss artist Gwabryel. At over 500 pages, with twelve stories and one full-length novel, this is the only edition of Sax Rohmer’s weird fiction in print.
Limited to 300 copies, each signed by cover artist David Ho, interior artist Gwabryel, and editor S.T. Joshi.
• Striking full-color, wraparound dustjacket printed on Mohawk Carnival stock.
• Printed endpapers.
• Full cloth cover with image inset on front board.

|Clive Cussler: THE BOOTLEGGER (An Isaac Bell Adventure) - Coming March 4! |
by Clive Cussler & Justin Scott
It is 1920, and both Prohibition and bootlegging are in full swing. When Isaac Bell’s boss and lifelong friend Joseph Van Dorn is shot and nearly killed leading the high-speed chase of a rum-running vessel, Bell swears to him that he will hunt down the lawbreakers, but he doesn’t know what he is getting into. When a witness to Van Dorn’s shooting is executed in a ruthlessly efficient manner invented by the Russian secret police, it becomes clear that these are no ordinary criminals. Bell is up against a team of Bolshevik assassins and saboteurs—and they are intent on overthrowing the government of the United States.

I love readers. I particularly love my readers, and I love getting more of them.

The book is an old-fashioned pulp adventure told through a modern lens, written for all ages; I hear from kids as young as eight, and grown-ups up into their eighties. It is fully illustrated by Australian comics whiz Gary Chaloner, and when I say fully illustrated, I mean it. There are a lot of cool pictures in this book. It is a labor of love, a celebration of pulp fiction, families, literature, and battles against armies of man-frogs out to destroy the world.

|F. Paul Wilson: FEAR CITY - Now available for pre-order! |
F. Paul Wilson concludes his Repairman Jack early years trilogy (and what could be the last Repairman Jack novel he writes) with FEAR CITY.
It's February, 1993. When a woman's mutilated body washes up on an Astoria beach, the unidentifiable corpse is dubbed "The Ditmars Dahlia." But Jack knows who she is and sets out to learn why and, most important, who. The killers and those who ordered her death go on with their lives, never dreaming that anyone would care about the death of a nobody, unaware of the relentless nemesis they've set in motion.
FEAR CITY concludes the Repairman Jack Early Years Trilogy. All the threads of the first two novels weave into a violent tapestry involving the mob, the super-secret Septimus Order, a high-priced call girl operation, and the terrorists who first bombed the World Trade Center. All will be impacted by Jack's quest to avenge the brutal death of a "nobody."
For the lettered edition only each copy will contain an original (not a copy) of an outline page, with handwritten corrections and additions, F. Paul Wilson used for FEAR CITY. This enhances the book's collectibility as NO two books will be alike (each customer received a different original outline page).

FIST OF AFRICA
Nigeria 2004 ... Nicholas 'New Breed' Steed, a tough teen from the mean streets of Chicago, is sent to his mother’s homeland – a tiny village in Nigeria – to avoid trouble with the law. Unknown to Nick, the tiny village is actually a compound where some of the best fighters in the world are trained. Nick is teased, bullied and subjected to torturous training in a culture so very different from the world where he grew up.

Believing the disaffected youth in his home town sorely need the same self-discipline and strength of character training in the African martial arts gave him, Nick opens an Academy. While the kids are disinterested in the fighting style of the cultural heritage Nick offers, they are enamored with mixed martial arts. Nick decides to enter the world of mixed martial arts to make the world aware of the effectiveness and efficiency of the martial arts of Africa.
Pursing a professional career in MMA, Nick moves to Atlanta, Georgia, where he runs into his old nemesis – Rico Stokes, the organized crime boss who once employed Nick’s father, wants Nick to replace his father in the Stokes’ protection racket. Will New Breed Steed claim the Light Heavyweight title … Or will the streets of Atlanta claim him?

|Gotham Pulp Collectors Club - February 15, 2013! |
There is a change in the meeting date for this months's (the February) Gotham Pulp Collectors Club meeting.
Due to a scheduling issue at the Jefferson Market Library, we'll be meeting on the THIRD Saturday this month instead of the second Saturday.
The meeting room for this month will be on the third floor. There is an elevator. Signs will be placed.
These changes are a result of the renovations at the Hudson Park Library. They will last, I'm told, six months. We may be able to go back there after May.
Gotham Pulp Collectors Club is a club for pulp collectors to meet in the NYC/Metro area.
Name: Gotham Pulp Collectors Club
Time: 1-5 PM
Place: Jefferson Market branch of the New York Public Library. 425 Avenue of the Americas (6th Ave.) near 9th Street.

|Grimm: THE CHOPPING BLOCK - Coming February 18! |
by John Passarella
A cache of bones is found in a shallow grave in local woods... Meanwhile missing persons cases in Portland seem to be on the increase. As more bones are discovered, Portland homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt and his partner Hank Griffin investigate - but there seems to be no connection between the victims... A brand-new original story set in the Grimm universe.
Mass Market Paperback: 336 pages
Publisher: Titan Books
Jumpin’ Jungle Cat of Jupiter! It’s another mega-collection of four complete novels of the “Man of Tomorrow,” the “Wizard of Science,” the protector of the Solar System and a menace to evil-doers throughout the universe: CAPTAIN FUTURE!
Now that Captain Future (aka Dr. Curtis Newton) and the Futuremen (Grag the robot; Otho the Android; and Simon Wright, the Living Brain) have traveled through time in the final story of Volume Two (See “The Lost World of Time”), can an adventure beyond the Solar System be far behind? Most assuredly not! The Futuremen board their trusty space-vessel, The Comet, and blast-off for adventure in QUEST BEYOND THE STARS! But that’s not all the dangers our intrepid defenders will face in VOLUME THREE. Up next is OUTLAWS ON THE MOON! When the peoples of the Solar System believe the Futuremen to be dead, what better time for the emissaries of villainy to attempt to break in to Captain Future’s Secret Moon Base. Following that nail-biting saga, is arguably the finest of the CAPTAIN FUTURE novels: THE COMET KINGS. Here, author Hamilton pulls out all the stops as the Futuremen combat forces from within Halley’s Comet! In the final story of this volume, PLANETS IN PERIL, the Futuremen face forces from another dimension that threaten to enslave our entire universe!
As with the previous two volumes of THE COLLECTED CAPTAIN FUTURE, “Under Observation,” the CAPTAIN FUTURE letters column is reprinted, and the original pulp covers and interior illustrations are reproduced in a generous appendix.

Gregg Taylor (Writer) • Dean Kotz (Art) • Dean Kotz (Cover)
Racketeers, gangsters, the occasional power-mad super villain–all have fallen before the iron resolve of the city’s masked protectors. But when forces with powers from beyond this world threaten to bring their war to the streets of Depression-era Toronto, can even the Red Panda prevent disaster? Bringing to life characters from The Red Panda Adventures, Decoder Ring Theatre’s award-winning radio drama series, Mask of the Red Panda is pulse-pounding pulp perfection for all those who love the classic two-fisted adventures of the golden age of radio, classic movie serials, and the hero pulps.

The Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention is a three-day festival held inside the Hunt Valley Wyndham. Here, you can watch dozens of screenings of vintage movies, world premiere documentaries, Hollywood celebrities posing for photos and signing autographs for fans, slide show seminars from authors and historians, over 200 vendor tables with retro merchandise, antiques and collectibles and... well, it is a lot of fun.Whether you have been to other conventions in the past or never attended a convention before, we recommend you give it a try. You'll discover what people keep returning year after year. Attendees come from California, Canada, Seattle, England, Belgium, Florida, Maine... and statistically the size of the attendance has grown every year. MANC didn’t attract such a faithful following by accident. Nearing our 10th anniversary, MANC has offered fans a chance to meet Hollywood actors, visit a drive-in movie theater, watch old fifties films like Creature from the Black Lagoon in 3-D, have their picture next to The Blob silicone, watch Abbott and Costello impersonators perform on stage, and have a great time. Many of the seminars will be broadcast live from Radio Once More and you can tune into the station for free at http://radiooncemore.com/
|The New Pulp Heroes - Now online! |
Tom Johnson has started a new Blog for authors who have created new pulp heroes.
This Site is for essays on The New Pulp Heroes. It’s about time we catalog new characters appearing in books and anthologies. Since Tom does not have time to read everything being published, he is offering space for legitimate creators of new pulp characters to send him their data, and he will post their essays. The only changes Tom will make to essays will be editing and format. If you wish, include a jpeg of a book cover or b&w illustration if you have permission from the artist. By sending Tom your essays, you are giving me permission to promote and showcase this data. Eventually, it would be nice to see all the data published in book format. Essays should be up to 500 words, and include information on MC and back up characters, creator, title of books, and where the stories can be found.

| |PULPWOOD DAYS: VOLUME 2: LIVES OF THE PULP WRITERS
Edited by John Locke
This unique collection mines the writers’ mags for those rare articles in which pulp writers looked back on their careers—how they broke in, their successes and failures, the glories and hardships of the pulp racket. These are hardboiled writing stories from the Pulp Era—when the greatest time in history to sell fiction—the 1920s—was suddenly followed by one of the worst—the ’30s. 6x9-inch perfect bound; 250 pages, $22.00
Complementing the twenty pieces are all-new profiles of the subject authors. Who were they? What weren’t they telling us? What happened to them after the pulps died? We meet the writers and see how their lives were shaped by the times and the ever-shifting fortunes of the pulps.
From all walks of life, they were as interesting as the characters they imagined—soldiers and sailors, a lumberjack, a daredevil aviator, a WWI ambulance driver, a beauty-contest emcee, a career criminal, and—why not?—the leader of a marching band.
Some of these names are remembered today; many are not. But they all left behind fascinating and enlightening glimpses into the great days when the pulps ruled the newsstands. Included are Arthur J. Burks, Tom Curry, Steve Fisher, Hapsburg Liebe, Chuck Martin, Harold Masur, Tom Thursday, Paul Triem, Jean Francis Webb, and many others. Over 100,000 words of pulp history.

|Pulp Magazines Project - Now online! |
Publishing legends The Black Mask (1920), Weird Tales (1923), and Amazing Stories (1926) are considered so “extremely rare and valuable” that the U.S. Library of Congress houses its collection of 277 issues in Washington, D.C.’s Rare Book and Special Collections Division—along with the personal libraries of Presidents, medieval and Renaissance manuscripts, and one of only three known perfect copies of the Gutenberg Bible in existence. With its latest addition of 4 issues of The Black Mask (Aug. & Sept. 1920; Dec. 1921; and Apr. 1922), the Pulp Magazines Project has made all 3 classic titles available together—for the first time—in high-quality, cover-to-cover digital editions.
Also available at the Pulp Magazines Project, new issues of the iconic “weird menace” pulp, Dime Mystery Magazine (Apr. 1938 and Sept. 1946); Adventure (Jul. 1, 1928; feat. Walt Coburn’s “The Man Who Hated Himself”); Western Story (Jul. 27, 1940); Detective Story (May 1938; feat. Zorro-creator Johnston McCulley’s “Thubway Tham’s Thothial Thecurity”); and histories of both The Black Mask (E.R. Hagemann; UCLA) and Dime Mystery Magazine (Emily Sisler; University of West Florida).
The Pulp Magazines Project is an open-access digital archive dedicated to the study and preservation of one of the twentieth century's most influential literary & artistic forms: the all-fiction pulpwood magazine. The Project also provides information on the history of this important but long neglected medium, along with biographies of pulp authors, artists, and their publishers.
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.

|Runner (A Sam Dryden Novel) - Coming February 18! |
by Patrick Lee
Sam Dryden, retired special forces, lives a quiet life in a small town on the coast of Southern California. While out on a run in the middle of the night, a young girl runs into him on the seaside boardwalk. Barefoot and terrified, she’s running from a group of heavily armed men with one clear goal—to kill the fleeing child. After Dryden helps her evade her pursuers, he learns that the eleven year old, for as long as she can remember, has been kept in a secret prison by forces within the government. But she doesn’t know much beyond her own name, Rachel. She only remembers the past two months of her life—and that she has a skill that makes her very dangerous to these men and the hidden men in charge.
Dryden, who lost his wife and young daughter in an accident five years ago, agrees to help her try to unravel her own past and make sense of it, to protect her from the people who are moving heaven and earth to find them both. Although Dryden is only one man, he’s a man with the extraordinary skills and experience—as a Ranger, a Delta, and five years doing off-the-book black ops with an elite team. But, as he slowly begins to discover, the highly trained paramilitary forces on their heels is the only part of the danger they must face. Will Rachel’s own unremembered past be the most deadly of them all?

As Tartary Burns As Tartary Burns is the debut novel by Riley Hogan and is newly published by Airship 27. Calling the novel pulp fiction isn’t completely accurate. Hogan finds himself in the same position as the standout talents of the pulp world of the 1920s and 1930s who were published in the pulps but whose prose was more polished and literate than most of their peers to the degree that it seems an oversight they were passed up by the slicks. Many of those talents today are recognized as having lasting literary value. So it is with As Tartary Burns, an ambitious fast-paced historical adventure that presents an alternate history of the Cossacks, Ottomans, and Crimeans. Read the rest at the links below.

ZOMBIES! From The Walking Dead to World War Z to Plants vs. Zombies, they have become a multimedia pop culture sensation. But this isn’t the first zombie boom—in the 1920s and 30s, stories of voodoo zombie masters, mad scientists animating corpses, and evil sorcerers raising undead armies first began to appear in books, in movies, and in the pages of the pulp magazines. This volume collects twenty creepy tales from pulps like Weird Tales, Dime Mystery, and Terror Tales by writers like H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith, August Derleth, Manly Wade Wellman, Henry Kuttner, and E. Hoffmann Price. From genuine horror classics like “Herman West—Reanimator” and “Pigeons from Hell” to rare and hard-to-find tales from the notorious shudder pulps, this anthology edited with an introduction by Jeffrey Shanks is one that no zombie fan should miss!
