Adventures in Bronze
GLARE OF THE GORGON
Hardcover, softcover and eBook are now available!
Coming to comic shops September 7!
 

Why did a desperate man shave his head before visiting Doc Savage headquarters, only to be struck down, his pulsing brain turned to inert stone? What sinister secret did his strange slaying silence? And how was a lizard-green shadow resembling Medusa branded on Doc’s office wall?

These are only some of the questions confronting the Man of Bronze as he pursues a grisly trail of petrified corpses to post-Prohibition Chicago, whose criminal underworld is being terrorized by a serpent-haired demon engaged in a seemingly senseless slaughter spree whose ultimate target will shake Doc Savage’s men to their core.

Suspects are many, clues baffling. Death and danger lurks everywhere they turn—symbolized by the silhouette of a faceless Gorgon.

From the concrete canyons of Manhattan to the coal fields of Illinois, Doc Savage tracks a phantom fiend the likes of which he has never before hunted. Or is he the one being hunted?

Hardcover: $39.95  /  Softcover: $24.95  /  eBook:  $4.99



DOC SAVAGE: GLARE OF THE GORGON is solicited in the July PREVIEWS (Available June 29).

YEN SIN #1: THE MYSTERY OF THE DRAGON'S SHADOW
By Donald E. Keyhoe


Out of the teeming turbulent East had come Dr. Yen Sin—saff­ron-skinned wizard of crime—bringing to the capital of the West all the ancient Devil’s-lore at his command—and a horde of Asian Hell-born to help him spawn it. But Michael Traile—The Man Who Never Slept—had crammed into his own keen brain the means to cope with the sinister doctor. For he knew even the secrets of the Dragon’s Shadow and how to penetrate the yellow murder fog that had descended on the capital to mingle its blood-wisps with the mist from the Potomac.

 Blood 'N' Thunder 46/47 (Winter-Spring 2016)
Now available for immediate shipping!
The last subscriber copies will be mailed this weekend!

The 230 pages of this double issue — the first BnT of 2016 — is crammed with articles, reviews, and reprints.

The feature articles boast BnT‘s usual combination of intensive research and passionate writing. The cover story is Ed Hulse’s lengthy examination of the two Columbia serials featuring The Spider, one of pulpdom’s greatest heroes. Rick Lai details the numerous pulp references in The Sinister Shadow, Will Murray’s recent novel pitting Doc Savage against The Shadow. Robert E. Howard scholar Morgan Holmes chronicles the efforts of Conan’s creator to break into the pulp magazines published by William Clayton. Old-Time Radio authority Karl Schadow offers a history of the little-known Stay Tuned for Terror, the series written by Robert Bloch and adapted primarily from his pulp stories. Bruce Dettman provides an overview of the various characters marketed to several mediums as The Falcon.

The issue’s department installments have the usual variety. “Tricks of the Trade” presents a 1932 Writer’s Digest piece on the Western-pulp market. Horror novelist and filmmaker S. Craig Zahler reviews two 1932 issues of Weird Tales in “Off the Shelf.” In “Airwave Adventures” Martin Grams writes about lost episodes of the Mysterious Traveler, a pulpish radio series that became a fiction magazine. Ed Hulse discusses one of the first movie serials, 1914’s The Million Dollar Mystery, in “Cliffhanger Classics.” And Dave Smith covers one of the great air-war hero pulps, The Lone Eagle, in “Series Spotlight.”

The reprint section begins with an 80th-anniversary tribute to the 1936 Flash Gordon serial: Rare promotional material originally published in Universal Weekly, the Universal Pictures trade paper circulated to exhibitors. Our fiction reprint is “Drunk, Disorderly, and Dead,” a 1942 Robert Leslie Bellem mystery featuring Dan Turner, Hollywood Detective. Finally, we publish long-unseen court documents relating to a Popular Publications lawsuit involving Black Mask magazine.

BnT #46/47 has the usual complement of illustrations — pulp cover reproductions, vintage movie stills, original art, and so on.

Serials that starred favorites from the sports and theatrical worlds — Harry Houdini, Billie Burke, "Gentleman Jim" Corbett, Benny Leonard, and Maurice "Lefty" Flynn, to name a few — are also covered.

At a length of nearly 160,000 words, illustrated with hundreds of rare stills, posters, lobby cards, magazine ads and even frame blowups from surviving film elements, HANDSOME HEROES AND VICIOUS VILLAINS
is the last word on this fascinating segment of American movie history. The product of a quarter century's research, it equals if not surpasses the award-nominated DISTRESSED DAMSELS AND MASKED MARAUDERS.

Now available!

Welcome to Man Drowning, a noir tale if ever there was one. First published in hardback by Harper & Brothers in 1952, it wouldn’t have been at all out of place in the Gold Medal paperback line of the same year. Nick Banning, the book’s narrator, is a blue-collar guy and a war vet, like so many of the characters in noir books and films. And like them, he has problems, chief among them his almost uncontrollable anger and his obsessive love of a woman named Sherry, to whom he was once married. He finds Sherry in Arizona and tries to convince her, and himself, that he’s changed, that his obsession with her won’t lead him to do the kinds of things he did in the past. Sherry knows better, Nick knows better, the reader knows better, and his downward spiral has already begun.

This new edition of Man Drowning is signed by Bill Crider, who wrote the introduction, and Ron Lesser, who provided the stunning cover artwork. Limited to just 200 copies for sale.

Cirsova Heroic Fantasy & Science Fiction Pulp Zine: Issue 2
Now available for pre-order!

Cirsova is taking pre-orders for the second issue of its a newly launched semi-pro market for Pulp adventure stories.

Late January, Cirsova launched a Kickstarter to take pre-orders for its inaugural issue. It funded in a matter of days, going on to double its original goal. We were able to begin fulfilling orders within weeks of the end of the Kickstarter – as soon as the money hit our account.

We have big plans for the future, and while we were toying with the idea of a semi-annual release, fueled by the myriad amazing submissions we got during our open submission period we ultimately decided to push forward, build momentum and aim for being a quarterly publication!

As such, we are again using Kickstarter to take pre-orders and sell ad space for Issue 2 of Cirsova. Like before, everything is paid for – stories and art - and the magazine is ready to go save for finalizing the ad layout.

This is going to be an especially cool issue, with nearly 50,000 words of original content. We've got several new and returning contributors, including an all new Dream Lords story by Adrian Cole and an essay by multiple-award-winning author Kristine Katheryn Rusch.  In addition to the fantastic piece by our regular artist, Jabari Weathers, Issue 2 will have a Kickstarter exclusive cover done by 2016 Hugo Nominee Ku Kuru Yo.


Short Stories
 • The Sealed City by Adrian Cole (all new Dream Lords story)
 
Hoskins' War by Brian K. Lowe
 
Squire Errant by Karl Gallagher

Edgar Rice Burroughs
TARZAN ON THE PRECIPICE by Michael A Sanford
Now available for pre-order!

At the conclusion of the classic TARZAN OF THE APES by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan is despondent but assured he did what was honorable by enabling Jane to leave with his cousin, William Clayton (who believes he is the rightful heir to the Greystoke estate and can appropriately provide for Jane when they marry). But what then? There has never been an explanation of Tarzan’s activities after his presence in Wisconsin and before he begins his voyage back to Africa—until now!

This story is full of fantasy, imaginative fiction and adventure – It grabs your attention from the beginning and keeps it to the very end. As Tarzan travels north, you will have visions of Canada that will make you feel as if you are there, touching and feeling all that Tarzan does. Thinking time and again that Tarzan’s demise is imminent, he escapes only to encounter still more dangers, with each episode building more suspense and anticipation for the next. Tarzan’s discovery of a lost Viking civilization and the author’s description and explanation of it will bring you a clear picture of village life and the gruesome realities of their existence.

While you may think this is a novel of pure fiction, archaeologists are continuing to discover new Viking sites in North America. Just recently, satellite technology has revealed intriguing evidence of a second Norse settlement further south than ever before known. A new Canadian site was discovered after infrared images from 400 miles in space showed possible man-made impressions under layers of vegetation with telltale signs of iron working. And now you will have the opportunity, while joining Tarzan, to unearth and experience this new discovery.

Of course, TARZAN ON THE PRECIPICE has a double meaning. He is indeed chained with his life hanging in the balance on the precipice of a volcanic crater, but he is also on the precipice of the rest of his life, not knowing his future, abandoning his right of birth as an English Lord and bereft of the thing in life he cherishes most, Jane. All that is left for him now is Africa, which is at least known to him. Enjoy this tale and join Tarzan on his Canadian adventure as he prepares to return to Africa and a future even he cannot predict.

LOVECRAFT ALIVE: A COLLECTION OF LOVECRAFTIAN STORIES by John Shirley - Shipping in June!

Acclaimed novelist John Shirley has written novels and tales that span the spectrum of imaginative literature, from science fiction to psychological terror to supernatural horror. One of the writers that inspired him to become a writer was H. P. Lovecraft, and in this volume Shirley pays tribute to the titan of weird fiction with a series of imaginative elaborations upon Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos.
 
These stories range from narratives that feature Lovecraft himself as a shadowy character (“When Death Wakes Me to Myself”) to historical tales where Lovecraftian entities emerge at critical points in the past (“Those Who Come to Dagon,” “The Rime of the Cosmic Mariner,” “Broken on the Wheel of Time”) to vibrant tales melding Lovecraftian terror with modern technology (“At Home with Azathoth,” “The Holy Grace of Cthulhu”). The volume concludes with a scintillating unpublished novella, “Broken on the Wheel of Time,” elaborating upon conceptions found in Lovecraft’s “The Shadow out of Time.”

Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days
Philip José Farmer’s The Other Log of Phileas Fogg
THEY WERE ONLY THE BEGINNING!


In 2014, Meteor House published Phileas Fogg and the War of Shadows by Josh Reynolds, a sequel to Philip José Farmer’s The Other Log of Phileas Fogg. 2016 brings us Reynolds’ Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra, furthering the exploits of Jules Verne’s most iconic hero.

Now, join Meteor House as Win Scott Eckert reveals a hitherto unknown chapter in Fogg’s celebrated round-the-world journey!

December 1872. Phileas Fogg, the lovely Aouda, and his faithful manservant Passepartout, are nearing the end of their frenzied eighty-day dash around the world…

One wouldn’t think, as Fogg and Co. speed across North America on the transcontinental railroad, that they would have time to befriend a mysterious masked lawman, match wits with a long-lived criminal mastermind and his tong, and battle anti-Chinese sentiment in Old West coal mining communities.

One would be wrong.

Win Scott Eckert pulls back the veil on the previously untold tale of Mr. Phileas Fogg’s fateful encounter with the legendary masked rider of the plains and his faithful companion—an episode suppressed (with good reason!) by M. Verne himself from the final publication of his classic Around the World in Eighty Days.

Meteor House is proud to present our first limited edition chapbook, a 9,800 word adventure signed by Win Scott Eckert. As with most of our books, the print run will be determined by the number of books preordered. Only a small number will be printed beyond the preorders, so to ensure you don’t miss out, be sure to order no later than July 5th.

And here is an added bonus: if you have preordered any of our forthcoming titles, this chapbook has free shipping (and will be sent to you, along with your other book(s), after FarmerCon in early August).

BLACK WINGS V

Now available for pre-order!

This is still listed as upcoming. Mike Chomko is accepting pre-orders for the book.

This fifth instalment of S. T. Joshi’s critically acclaimed Black Wings series features twenty stories that use H. P. Lovecraft’s mythos as the basis for imaginative ventures into the weird and terrifying. One of the central themes in Lovecraft’s work is the problematical nature of science in human affairs, and in this volume we find stories by Caitlín R. Kiernan, Lynne Jamneck, and Donald R. Burleson where scientists come face to face with the appalling implications of their discoveries.

Lovecraft was a master of the “sense of place,” inventing imaginary towns in New England with a rich and sinister history stretching back centuries. In this book, Jonathan Thomas, W. H. Pugmire, and Sunni K Brock bring Lovecraft’s towns of Arkham, Kingsport, and Innsmouth to life. Sam Gafford, Darrell Schweitzer, and Stephen Woodworth evoke terror in other corners of the American continent, while British writers David Hambling and John Reppion find Lovecraftian horror in little-known towns in England. The world-building that led Lovecraft to fashion an entire universe set in the realm of dreams is duplicated in tales by Cody Goodfellow, Mark Howard Jones, and Donald Tyson.

Madness is always an occupational hazard of the “searchers after horror” who populate Lovecraft’s tales. In this volume, stories by Robert H. Waugh, Nicole Cushing, and Nancy Kilpatrick searingly display the psychological aberrations of characters as they encounter the bizarre. Lovecraft himself has become an iconic character, and his gaunt, lantern-jawed figure stalks the tales by Jason C. Eckhardt and Mollie L. Burleson. This volume concludes, as did its predecessor, with a long poem by Wade German, one of the most dynamic figures in a remarkable renaissance of weird poetry inspired by the work of Lovecraft and his colleagues.

Black Wings V can 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.

Thursday, July 21 through Sunday, July 24, 2016


Are you thinking about attending PulpFest 2016? You’re probably wondering what to expect from this year’s convention. PulpFest is known for its great programming and the line-up that we’re planning for our 2016 convention is shaping up to be one of our best.

We’ll be saluting a wide range of anniversaries at this summer’s pulp con: the tenth anniversary of Sanctum Books; the eightieth anniversary of THE WHISPERER and THE SKIPPER; the ninetieth anniversary of AMAZING STORIES, the first science-fiction pulp; the hundredth anniversary of the specialty pulp; and the 120th anniversary of THE ARGOSY, the original pulp magazine!



The Guest of Honor for PulpFest 2016 will be author, editor, musician, and science-fiction and pulp fan Ted White.

Born February 4, 1938, Theodore Edwin White is a Hugo Award-winning American writer, best known as a science-fiction author and editor and as a fan and music critic. In addition to books and stories written under his own name, he has also co-authored novels with Dave van Arnam as Ron Archer, and with Terry Carr as Norman Edwards.

Since the time he was a teenager, White has been a prolific contributor to science-fiction fanzines, and in 1968 he won the Hugo Award for Best Fan Writer. Despite his considerable professional credits, White maintains that his achievements in fandom mean more to him than anything else he has done. In 1953, he edited and published ZIP, the first of his many fanzines. In 1956–57, he co-edited STELLAR with Larry Stark; followed by VOID in 1960, joining founding editors Gregory and James Benford; plus MINAC, EGOBOO, and others. He was also a regular columnist for YANDRO and Richard E. Geis’ PSYCHOTIC/SF REVIEW and has been active in numerous fan events, including the organizing of the 1967 World Science Fiction Convention in New York City as co-chairman. He still remains active on several fandom- and fanzine-oriented electronic mailing lists.

In 1959, at the age of 21, White moved from Baltimore to New York City with his first wife, Sylvia Dees White. That year, he began writing music criticism for METRONOME and a column for Tom Wilson’s JAZZ GUIDE (later 33 GUIDE). As a music critic, he expanded into jazz writing and journalism for ROGUE, along with record liner notes, concert reviews and interviews. He was the only person to record an interview with Eric Dolphy, the American jazz alto saxophonist, flautist, and bass clarinetist. From 1977 through 1979 as Dr. Progresso, he did the Friday afternoon DR. PROGRESSO radio show on WGTB-FM. Following the advent of the Internet, White became the music editor of the Collecting Channel website in 1999, and he continues to maintain his own website of music commentary under his Dr. Progresso pseudonym.


White’s first professional sale as a writer was a short vignette sold to PLAYBOY in 1959. Two stories released on the same day — “Phoenix,” written by Ted White and revised by Marion Zimmer Bradley for the February 1963 AMAZING STORIES and “I, Executioner,” co-authored by Terry Carr for the March 1963 IF (WORLDS OF SCIENCE FICTION) — have been cited by our guest as his first-published stories. The author later expanded “Phoenix” into the novel PHOENIX PRIME, originally published in 1966 by Lancer Books. It was the first of the QANAR series — continuing with THE SORCERESS OF QAR (1966) and STAR WOLF (1971) — all published by Lancer. “I Executioner” became the opening chapter of his Ace book, ANDROID AVENGER.

Captain AmericaTed’s first novel — INVASION FROM 2500 — was written in collaboration with Terry Carr under the pseudonym Norman Edwards. It was published in 1964. Through 1978 he wrote two science-fiction series and eleven stand-alone novels, including one Captain America novel — THE GREAT GOLD STEAL. It was published by Bantam Books and featured a nod to its pulp forebears: one of the bad guys is named Andrew “Monk” Mayfair. Two of White’s novels were written in collaboration with Dave van Arnam, one with David Bischoff and one — using White’s Doc Phoenix character — with Marv Wolfman. Ted White was a 1966 Nebula-Award nominee for his short story, “The Peacock King,” written with Larry McCombs. He was also instrumental in kick-starting the professional careers of other writers, notably Lee Hoffman. Still writing at nearly seventy-eight years of age, White has had a number of short stories published in recent years. “The Uncertain Past” appeared in the March & April 2014 number of THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION while”The Philistine” can be found in the October 2015 issue of ANALOG SCIENCE FICTION AND FACT.

Our Guest of Honor’s editorial career began as an assistant and associate editor at THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION from 1963 to 1968. He also served as an associate editor at Lancer Books, working under Larry Shaw. From October 1968 until October 1978, Ted White edited AMAZING STORIES and FANTASTIC, upgrading the quality of both magazine’s fiction while showcasing a variety of talented illustrators. According to author, anthologist, and science-fiction and popular-culture historian, Mike Ashley, White ushered “AMAZING into a silver, if not a golden, age.” He also edited two 1973 anthologies, THE BEST FROM AMAZING STORIES and THE BEST FROM FANTASTIC. Both were published by Manor Books.

Ted White’s reputation as an editor impressed the publishers of HEAVY METAL who hired him in 1979 to introduce non-fiction into the magazine. White immediately hired four columnists — Jay Kinney, Lou Stathis, Steve Brown and Bhob Stewart — to cover, respectively, underground comics, music, science fiction, and movies. HEAVY METAL continued to feature mainly graphic stories during White’s tenure as the new editor wove the text into the graphic art, rather than segregating it into a separate section. In 1984-85, Ted White served as Editorial Director for STARDATE, a multi-media science-fiction magazine edited by David Bischoff.

Ted became a pulp collector as a teenager. He owns most of the science-fiction pulps from the 1940s and many from the twenties and thirties. Among his holdings are complete runs of SCIENCE WONDER STORIES and AIR WONDER STORIES, both issues of MIRACLE SCIENCE AND FANTASY STORIES, all the Futurian-edited magazines, the complete run of CAPTAIN FUTURE, and many other titles. His library of pulp and science-fiction digests is complete from 1951 through the nineties. He also owns many single-character pulps, including all but one issue of DOC SAVAGE MAGAZINE and a couple dozen issues of THE SHADOW. He also has many issues of THE AVENGER, CAPTAIN ZERO, THE PHANTOM DETECTIVE, THE WHISPERER, and other hero pulps in his collection.

White also plays keyboards and saxophone. He currently performs with the Washington, DC area improvisational group Conduit. Although we’d love to have him play, Ted will be speaking to PulpFest attendees during our evening programming about his career, fandom, pulps, science fiction, and AMAZING STORIES. His Guest of Honor speech will take place on Friday, July 22nd in the PulpFest programming room at the Hyatt Regency Columbus. We hope to see you at the convention.

Adventures in Bronze
GLARE OF THE GORGON
Hardcover, softcover and eBook are now available!
 

Why did a desperate man shave his head before visiting Doc Savage headquarters, only to be struck down, his pulsing brain turned to inert stone? What sinister secret did his strange slaying silence? And how was a lizard-green shadow resembling Medusa branded on Doc’s office wall?

These are only some of the questions confronting the Man of Bronze as he pursues a grisly trail of petrified corpses to post-Prohibition Chicago, whose criminal underworld is being terrorized by a serpent-haired demon engaged in a seemingly senseless slaughter spree whose ultimate target will shake Doc Savage’s men to their core.

Suspects are many, clues baffling. Death and danger lurks everywhere they turn—symbolized by the silhouette of a faceless Gorgon.

From the concrete canyons of Manhattan to the coal fields of Illinois, Doc Savage tracks a phantom fiend the likes of which he has never before hunted. Or is he the one being hunted?

SHERLOCK HOLMES MYSTERIES VOLUME 2 by Aaron Smith
Now available!

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled be offering its second Kindle only collection of Sherlock Holmes adventures; this time by writer Aaron Smith.  Our best selling book series continues to be our highly popular “Sherlock Holmes – Consulting Detective,” of which seven volumes have been published and the eight is on the way.

Several of our writers have been regular contributors to this series such as Andrew Salmon, I.A. Watson and Aaron Smith.  Last year we collected many of Watson’s pieces in a Kindle only edition called, “Sherlock Holmes Mysteries, Vol One,” and it has been a huge success.  Kindle owners have supported the book beyond our own hopes.  Enough so that it was time to put out a second collection and this time our spotlight is on Aaron Smith’s excellent stories.

We hope our Holmes fans old and new will check this out.  Again, you can only get this on Kindle, whereas all the stories themselves are available in the printed books.

Available at Amazon.com in the Kindle shop.

Airship 27 Productions – Pulp Fiction For A New Generation!




Airship 27 Productions
BROTHER BONES: THE MOVIE
Coming soon!

Franklin-Husser Entertainment LLC is thrilled to announce that they have reached out to New Pulp publisher Airship 27 in order to option the rights to Ron Fortier's character, Brother Bones, for an upcoming feature film.

“Brother Bones the Undead Avenger is a character I created over ten years ago,” Fortier recalls. “I just wanted to do my own homage to such great gun-totting vigilantes like the Shadow and the Spider. Little did I realize he would become so popular with our readers. They are forever clamoring for more of his macabre adventures.”

“New Pulp has such untapped potential,” co-founder Erik Franklin said. “There are so many vibrant, original characters that would be perfect for a cinematic adaption. Brother Bones has all that you could want in a story: exciting visuals, well-drawn characters, and each page is a cliff-hangar.”

“When Erik first showed me the book I immediately thought that Brother Bones would make a great movie.” Daniel Husser, co-founder of Franklin-Husser Entertainment LLC, commented. “The story is dark and full of action so it's perfect for us. Since we are working with Ron Fortier's creation, it is absolutely important to us that we stay faithful to the text. Many adaptations tend to change too much, damaging the original concept and we don't want that to happen.”

“It was very important to us to get Brother Bone's creator, Ron Fortier, involved with the project. He cares very much about his characters, and he only wants the best products to be associated with Brother Bones and Airship 27.” Erik said. “To that end, we discussed story possibilities at length, and we have determined what we think will be a great cinematic entrance for Brother Bones into the pantheon of cinematic heroes.”

A two minute test video was made and sent to Fortier to view.  “It virtually blew me away,” Fortier says. “Erik and Daniel had condensed in just two minutes what it had taken me almost four chapters to establish. They immediately captured the essence of the character and watching him come to life in that clip convinced me these two guys are going to make a fantastic Brother Bones feature. I couldn’t be more excited.”

The film is in its early planning stages, with the script being written by Ron Fortier and Erik Franklin. Seattle, Washington will double for Cape Noire, the setting in the Brother Bones novels. More details will be announced from Airship 27 and Franklin-Husser Entertainment LLC as they happen.

“This is going to be a big step forward for both our companies, and we look forward to presenting Brother Bones on the silver screen.” said Erik.


Airship 27 Productions is one of the pioneers of the New Pulp Movement and has been in operation for the past ten years producing beautiful quality novels and anthologies featuring both classic public domain and new pulp heroes.  Thus far there have been three Brother Bones books, a one shot comic book. Marshal Made Collectibles has produced several versions of Brother Bones action figures and soon Scaldcrow Games will be releasing an rpg module, “Ron Fortier’s Cape Noire” based on the Brother Bones adventures.  www.airship27.com

Franklin-Husser Entertainment LLC, is an independent film production company based in Seattle, Washington.  Founded by life-long friends Erik Franklin and Daniel Husser, they share a love of escapist cinema, and have decided to create feature films dedicated to bringing exciting tales of action, suspense, and adventure to audiences around the world. With interesting twists on traditional genres, Franklin-Husser Entertainment LLC, combines intelligent screenplays with high-impact action. The company primarily produces action, sci-fi, comedy, martial arts and horror films, but keep their minds open to new and exciting ideas and creative possibilities. Their first film, Revenge of the Lost, is in the process of being distributed, and their second film is in post production. www.fhentertainmentllc.com

YEN SIN #1: THE MYSTERY OF THE DRAGON'S SHADOW
By Donald E. Keyhoe


Out of the teeming turbulent East had come Dr. Yen Sin—saff­ron-skinned wizard of crime—bringing to the capital of the West all the ancient Devil’s-lore at his command—and a horde of Asian Hell-born to help him spawn it. But Michael Traile—The Man Who Never Slept—had crammed into his own keen brain the means to cope with the sinister doctor. For he knew even the secrets of the Dragon’s Shadow and how to penetrate the yellow murder fog that had descended on the capital to mingle its blood-wisps with the mist from the Potomac.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
 Blood 'N' Thunder 46/47 (Winter-Spring 2016)
Now available for immediate shipping!

The 230 pages of this double issue — the first BnT of 2016 — is crammed with articles, reviews, and reprints.

The feature articles boast BnT‘s usual combination of intensive research and passionate writing. The cover story is Ed Hulse’s lengthy examination of the two Columbia serials featuring The Spider, one of pulpdom’s greatest heroes. Rick Lai details the numerous pulp references in The Sinister Shadow, Will Murray’s recent novel pitting Doc Savage against The Shadow. Robert E. Howard scholar Morgan Holmes chronicles the efforts of Conan’s creator to break into the pulp magazines published by William Clayton. Old-Time Radio authority Karl Schadow offers a history of the little-known Stay Tuned for Terror, the series written by Robert Bloch and adapted primarily from his pulp stories. Bruce Dettman provides an overview of the various characters marketed to several mediums as The Falcon.

The issue’s department installments have the usual variety. “Tricks of the Trade” presents a 1932 Writer’s Digest piece on the Western-pulp market. Horror novelist and filmmaker S. Craig Zahler reviews two 1932 issues of Weird Tales in “Off the Shelf.” In “Airwave Adventures” Martin Grams writes about lost episodes of the Mysterious Traveler, a pulpish radio series that became a fiction magazine. Ed Hulse discusses one of the first movie serials, 1914’s The Million Dollar Mystery, in “Cliffhanger Classics.” And Dave Smith covers one of the great air-war hero pulps, The Lone Eagle, in “Series Spotlight.”

The reprint section begins with an 80th-anniversary tribute to the 1936 Flash Gordon serial: Rare promotional material originally published in Universal Weekly, the Universal Pictures trade paper circulated to exhibitors. Our fiction reprint is “Drunk, Disorderly, and Dead,” a 1942 Robert Leslie Bellem mystery featuring Dan Turner, Hollywood Detective. Finally, we publish long-unseen court documents relating to a Popular Publications lawsuit involving Black Mask magazine.

BnT #46/47 has the usual complement of illustrations — pulp cover reproductions, vintage movie stills, original art, and so on.

Cirsova Heroic Fantasy & Science Fiction Pulp Zine: Issue 2
Now available for pre-order!

Cirsova is taking pre-orders for the second issue of its a newly launched semi-pro market for Pulp adventure stories.

Late January, Cirsova launched a Kickstarter to take pre-orders for its inaugural issue. It funded in a matter of days, going on to double its original goal. We were able to begin fulfilling orders within weeks of the end of the Kickstarter – as soon as the money hit our account.

We have big plans for the future, and while we were toying with the idea of a semi-annual release, fueled by the myriad amazing submissions we got during our open submission period we ultimately decided to push forward, build momentum and aim for being a quarterly publication!

As such, we are again using Kickstarter to take pre-orders and sell ad space for Issue 2 of Cirsova. Like before, everything is paid for – stories and art - and the magazine is ready to go save for finalizing the ad layout.

This is going to be an especially cool issue, with nearly 50,000 words of original content. We've got several new and returning contributors, including an all new Dream Lords story by Adrian Cole and an essay by multiple-award-winning author Kristine Katheryn Rusch.  In addition to the fantastic piece by our regular artist, Jabari Weathers, Issue 2 will have a Kickstarter exclusive cover done by 2016 Hugo Nominee Ku Kuru Yo.

 • The Sealed City by Adrian Cole (all new Dream Lords story)
 
Hoskins' War by Brian K. Lowe

JAMES BOND VOLUME 1: VARGR Hardcover - Arriving in comic shops June 22!
(Writer) Warren Ellis (Art/Cover) Jason Masters

After a mission of vengeance in Helsinki, James Bond returns to London and assumes the workload of a fallen 00 Section agent. His new mission takes him to Berlin, presumably to break up an agile drug-trafficking operation. But Bond has no idea of the forces ranged in secret against him, the full range of an operation that's much scarier and more lethal than he could possibly imagine. Berlin is about to catch fire... and James Bond is trapped inside. Dynamite Entertainment proudly presents VARGR, the debut storyline in the all-new James Bond comic book series, as crafted by masterful writer Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan, The Authority) and artist Jason Masters (Batman Incorporated, Guardians of the Galaxy).

Hardcover, Full Color, 168 pages, $19.99

The time is now.

Lovecraft Alive: A Collection of Lovecraftian Stories by John Shirley - Shipping in June!

Acclaimed novelist John Shirley has written novels and tales that span the spectrum of imaginative literature, from science fiction to psychological terror to supernatural horror. One of the writers that inspired him to become a writer was H. P. Lovecraft, and in this volume Shirley pays tribute to the titan of weird fiction with a series of imaginative elaborations upon Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos.
 
These stories range from narratives that feature Lovecraft himself as a shadowy character (“When Death Wakes Me to Myself”) to historical tales where Lovecraftian entities emerge at critical points in the past (“Those Who Come to Dagon,” “The Rime of the Cosmic Mariner,” “Broken on the Wheel of Time”) to vibrant tales melding Lovecraftian terror with modern technology (“At Home with Azathoth,” “The Holy Grace of Cthulhu”). The volume concludes with a scintillating unpublished novella, “Broken on the Wheel of Time,” elaborating upon conceptions found in Lovecraft’s “The Shadow out of Time.”

Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days
Philip José Farmer’s The Other Log of Phileas Fogg
THEY WERE ONLY THE BEGINNING!


In 2014, Meteor House published Phileas Fogg and the War of Shadows by Josh Reynolds, a sequel to Philip José Farmer’s The Other Log of Phileas Fogg. 2016 brings us Reynolds’ Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra, furthering the exploits of Jules Verne’s most iconic hero.

Now, join Meteor House as Win Scott Eckert reveals a hitherto unknown chapter in Fogg’s celebrated round-the-world journey!

December 1872. Phileas Fogg, the lovely Aouda, and his faithful manservant Passepartout, are nearing the end of their frenzied eighty-day dash around the world…

One wouldn’t think, as Fogg and Co. speed across North America on the transcontinental railroad, that they would have time to befriend a mysterious masked lawman, match wits with a long-lived criminal mastermind and his tong, and battle anti-Chinese sentiment in Old West coal mining communities.

One would be wrong.

Win Scott Eckert pulls back the veil on the previously untold tale of Mr. Phileas Fogg’s fateful encounter with the legendary masked rider of the plains and his faithful companion—an episode suppressed (with good reason!) by M. Verne himself from the final publication of his classic Around the World in Eighty Days.

Meteor House is proud to present our first limited edition chapbook, a 9,800 word adventure signed by Win Scott Eckert. As with most of our books, the print run will be determined by the number of books preordered. Only a small number will be printed beyond the preorders, so to ensure you don’t miss out, be sure to order no later than July 5th.

And here is an added bonus: if you have preordered any of our forthcoming titles, this chapbook has free shipping (and will be sent to you, along with your other book(s), after FarmerCon in early August).

BLACK WINGS V

Now available for pre-order!

This is still listed as upcoming. Mike Chomko is accepting pre-orders for the book.

This fifth instalment of S. T. Joshi’s critically acclaimed Black Wings series features twenty stories that use H. P. Lovecraft’s mythos as the basis for imaginative ventures into the weird and terrifying. One of the central themes in Lovecraft’s work is the problematical nature of science in human affairs, and in this volume we find stories by Caitlín R. Kiernan, Lynne Jamneck, and Donald R. Burleson where scientists come face to face with the appalling implications of their discoveries.

Lovecraft was a master of the “sense of place,” inventing imaginary towns in New England with a rich and sinister history stretching back centuries. In this book, Jonathan Thomas, W. H. Pugmire, and Sunni K Brock bring Lovecraft’s towns of Arkham, Kingsport, and Innsmouth to life. Sam Gafford, Darrell Schweitzer, and Stephen Woodworth evoke terror in other corners of the American continent, while British writers David Hambling and John Reppion find Lovecraftian horror in little-known towns in England. The world-building that led Lovecraft to fashion an entire universe set in the realm of dreams is duplicated in tales by Cody Goodfellow, Mark Howard Jones, and Donald Tyson.

Madness is always an occupational hazard of the “searchers after horror” who populate Lovecraft’s tales. In this volume, stories by Robert H. Waugh, Nicole Cushing, and Nancy Kilpatrick searingly display the psychological aberrations of characters as they encounter the bizarre. Lovecraft himself has become an iconic character, and his gaunt, lantern-jawed figure stalks the tales by Jason C. Eckhardt and Mollie L. Burleson. This volume concludes, as did its predecessor, with a long poem by Wade German, one of the most dynamic figures in a remarkable renaissance of weird poetry inspired by the work of Lovecraft and his colleagues.

Black Wings V can 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.

Thursday, July 21 through Sunday, July 24, 2016


Are you thinking about attending PulpFest 2016? You’re probably wondering what to expect from this year’s convention. PulpFest is known for its great programming and the line-up that we’re planning for our 2016 convention is shaping up to be one of our best.

We’ll be saluting a wide range of anniversaries at this summer’s pulp con: the tenth anniversary of Sanctum Books; the eightieth anniversary of THE WHISPERER and THE SKIPPER; the ninetieth anniversary of AMAZING STORIES, the first science-fiction pulp; the hundredth anniversary of the specialty pulp; and the 120th anniversary of THE ARGOSY, the original pulp magazine!



The Guest of Honor for PulpFest 2016 will be author, editor, musician, and science-fiction and pulp fan Ted White.

Born February 4, 1938, Theodore Edwin White is a Hugo Award-winning American writer, best known as a science-fiction author and editor and as a fan and music critic. In addition to books and stories written under his own name, he has also co-authored novels with Dave van Arnam as Ron Archer, and with Terry Carr as Norman Edwards.

Since the time he was a teenager, White has been a prolific contributor to science-fiction fanzines, and in 1968 he won the Hugo Award for Best Fan Writer. Despite his considerable professional credits, White maintains that his achievements in fandom mean more to him than anything else he has done. In 1953, he edited and published ZIP, the first of his many fanzines. In 1956–57, he co-edited STELLAR with Larry Stark; followed by VOID in 1960, joining founding editors Gregory and James Benford; plus MINAC, EGOBOO, and others. He was also a regular columnist for YANDRO and Richard E. Geis’ PSYCHOTIC/SF REVIEW and has been active in numerous fan events, including the organizing of the 1967 World Science Fiction Convention in New York City as co-chairman. He still remains active on several fandom- and fanzine-oriented electronic mailing lists.

In 1959, at the age of 21, White moved from Baltimore to New York City with his first wife, Sylvia Dees White. That year, he began writing music criticism for METRONOME and a column for Tom Wilson’s JAZZ GUIDE (later 33 GUIDE). As a music critic, he expanded into jazz writing and journalism for ROGUE, along with record liner notes, concert reviews and interviews. He was the only person to record an interview with Eric Dolphy, the American jazz alto saxophonist, flautist, and bass clarinetist. From 1977 through 1979 as Dr. Progresso, he did the Friday afternoon DR. PROGRESSO radio show on WGTB-FM. Following the advent of the Internet, White became the music editor of the Collecting Channel website in 1999, and he continues to maintain his own website of music commentary under his Dr. Progresso pseudonym.


White’s first professional sale as a writer was a short vignette sold to PLAYBOY in 1959. Two stories released on the same day — “Phoenix,” written by Ted White and revised by Marion Zimmer Bradley for the February 1963 AMAZING STORIES and “I, Executioner,” co-authored by Terry Carr for the March 1963 IF (WORLDS OF SCIENCE FICTION) — have been cited by our guest as his first-published stories. The author later expanded “Phoenix” into the novel PHOENIX PRIME, originally published in 1966 by Lancer Books. It was the first of the QANAR series — continuing with THE SORCERESS OF QAR (1966) and STAR WOLF (1971) — all published by Lancer. “I Executioner” became the opening chapter of his Ace book, ANDROID AVENGER.

Captain AmericaTed’s first novel — INVASION FROM 2500 — was written in collaboration with Terry Carr under the pseudonym Norman Edwards. It was published in 1964. Through 1978 he wrote two science-fiction series and eleven stand-alone novels, including one Captain America novel — THE GREAT GOLD STEAL. It was published by Bantam Books and featured a nod to its pulp forebears: one of the bad guys is named Andrew “Monk” Mayfair. Two of White’s novels were written in collaboration with Dave van Arnam, one with David Bischoff and one — using White’s Doc Phoenix character — with Marv Wolfman. Ted White was a 1966 Nebula-Award nominee for his short story, “The Peacock King,” written with Larry McCombs. He was also instrumental in kick-starting the professional careers of other writers, notably Lee Hoffman. Still writing at nearly seventy-eight years of age, White has had a number of short stories published in recent years. “The Uncertain Past” appeared in the March & April 2014 number of THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION while”The Philistine” can be found in the October 2015 issue of ANALOG SCIENCE FICTION AND FACT.

Our Guest of Honor’s editorial career began as an assistant and associate editor at THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION from 1963 to 1968. He also served as an associate editor at Lancer Books, working under Larry Shaw. From October 1968 until October 1978, Ted White edited AMAZING STORIES and FANTASTIC, upgrading the quality of both magazine’s fiction while showcasing a variety of talented illustrators. According to author, anthologist, and science-fiction and popular-culture historian, Mike Ashley, White ushered “AMAZING into a silver, if not a golden, age.” He also edited two 1973 anthologies, THE BEST FROM AMAZING STORIES and THE BEST FROM FANTASTIC. Both were published by Manor Books.

Ted White’s reputation as an editor impressed the publishers of HEAVY METAL who hired him in 1979 to introduce non-fiction into the magazine. White immediately hired four columnists — Jay Kinney, Lou Stathis, Steve Brown and Bhob Stewart — to cover, respectively, underground comics, music, science fiction, and movies. HEAVY METAL continued to feature mainly graphic stories during White’s tenure as the new editor wove the text into the graphic art, rather than segregating it into a separate section. In 1984-85, Ted White served as Editorial Director for STARDATE, a multi-media science-fiction magazine edited by David Bischoff.

Ted became a pulp collector as a teenager. He owns most of the science-fiction pulps from the 1940s and many from the twenties and thirties. Among his holdings are complete runs of SCIENCE WONDER STORIES and AIR WONDER STORIES, both issues of MIRACLE SCIENCE AND FANTASY STORIES, all the Futurian-edited magazines, the complete run of CAPTAIN FUTURE, and many other titles. His library of pulp and science-fiction digests is complete from 1951 through the nineties. He also owns many single-character pulps, including all but one issue of DOC SAVAGE MAGAZINE and a couple dozen issues of THE SHADOW. He also has many issues of THE AVENGER, CAPTAIN ZERO, THE PHANTOM DETECTIVE, THE WHISPERER, and other hero pulps in his collection.

White also plays keyboards and saxophone. He currently performs with the Washington, DC area improvisational group Conduit. Although we’d love to have him play, Ted will be speaking to PulpFest attendees during our evening programming about his career, fandom, pulps, science fiction, and AMAZING STORIES. His Guest of Honor speech will take place on Friday, July 22nd in the PulpFest programming room at the Hyatt Regency Columbus. We hope to see you at the convention.



To give you an idea about what you’ll encounter from July 21st through July 24th at the Hyatt Regency and the city’s spacious convention center in the Columbus, Ohio Arena district, below is the proposed scheduled for PulpFest 2016. We hope to see you at the convention.

The Green Lama #7 Audiobook
The Hollywood Ghost & The Beardless Corpse

by Kendell Foster Crossen writing as Richard Foster
Read by James C. Lewis

Now available!

With this seventh Green Lama audiobook, we come to the climax of the original adventures of millionaire Jethro Dumont, who journeyed to the mountains of Tibet and came back on a mission to erase evil from the face of the earth as the first Buddhist superhero, The Green Lama!

The Green Lama often visited tinsel town, which he does once more in The Case of the Hollywood Ghost. Bloody footprints left by no visible being leave a scene of murder, but where will they take the investigation? Only The Green Lama Knows.
 
Written during a vogue of invisible men movies––Universal released The Invisible Man Returns and The Invisible Woman in 1940––this entry focuses on a similar production, The Man from Nowhere. When the busy set is bedeviled by the imaginary lead villain, an uncatchable killer calling himself the Hollywood Ghost, Jethro Dumont takes a hand in the game in this sequel to his earlier Hollywood triumphs, Babies for Sale and The Wave of Death.
 
The Case of the Beardless Corpse marked the ultimate Green Lama exploit penned by creator Kendell Foster Crossen writing as Richard Foster. Although Crossen continued his jade-robed hero in comic books and on radio, he never wrote another novelette. But The Lama went out in style, investigating the bizarre circumstances surrounding the slaying of a high-ranking German diplomat––whose face was shaved by his mysterious murderer after death. Working from that baffling clue, The Green Lama follows a trail of blood to a satisfying conclusion, assisted by his surviving circle of followers, which included magician Theodor Harrin and the ever-mysterious Lady from Lhasa, Magga.
 
James C. Lewis reads the swan song of the strangest pulp superhero ever imagined...Om Mani Padme Hum! The Green Lama Knows!

Book-Length Spider Novel
Hell Rolls on the Highways! by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
It was a battle of vital import, because the Turnpike Pirates were destroying U.S. motor transportation! It was a battle of violence, because trained killers struck swiftly and for huge reward! It was a battle of iron wills, because the Evangelist, new “brain” of the Underworld, had sworn to consign the Spider and his tiny loyal band to the fiery pits of hell — by the power of his weirdly psychic mind alone!

Jack Logan travels to the Northwest to try to locate a mine that belonged to his murdered uncle and is there besieged by crooks wanting to steal the map to the mine from him.

When Logan and Helen compare notes, they realize the Mystery Trooper, who has thrown a bag of gold nuggets through a window to Helen and Billy, must know more bout the mine than he is saying, and so may White Cloud, a beguiling wild white horse. It is said that he who discovers White Cloud's secret home shall also discover great riches. Is this true?

TARZAN, LORD OF THE JUNGLE: SEASON ONE - Now available!

“Just in time for Father’s Day and the theatrical release, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the long awaited animated series that aired when Saturday Morning Cartoons reigned supreme. Available on DVD on June 14, 2016, Tarzan, Lord Of The Jungle: Complete Season One was created by the Filmation Studio for CBS and follows the animated adventures of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ ape man from the 1970’s. The two-disc collectors set includes all 16 episodes from the series’ first season, and is priced to own at $19.98 SRP.

As the opening narration explains: “The jungle: Here I was born; and here my parents died when I was but an infant. I would have soon perished, too, had I not been found by a kindly she-ape named Kala, who adopted me as her own and taught me the ways of the wild. I learned quickly, and grew stronger each day, and now I share the friendship and trust of all jungle animals. The jungle is filled with beauty, and danger; and lost cities filled with good, and evil. This is my domain, and I protect those who come here; for I am Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle!”

“Tarzan, Lord Of The Jungle was animated the old fashion way, with many hours of hand drawn stills,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing and Partner Brands. “They don’t make animation like this anymore, and we are really proud to be releasing this timeless classic just in time for the July release of Tarzan in theaters.”

The Wild Adventures of King Kong


William Patrick Maynard - Now online!

“The Golden Flask” was the eighth installment of Sax Rohmer’s serial, Fu-Manchu. First published in The Story-Teller in May 1913, it later comprised Chapters 21-23 of the novel, The Mystery of Dr. Fu-Manchu (initially re-titled The Insidious Dr. Fu-Manchu for North American publication). Rohmer added brief linking material to the start of this episode for its book publication in an effort to tie the story closer together with its immediate predecessor. “The Golden Flask” is unique in not being centered upon Dr. Petrie’s infatuation with Karamaneh, but rather upon our heroes’ obsession with bringing Dr. Fu-Manchu to justice.

Special Mavel Edition is a little remembered comics reprint title of the early 1970s. Its fifteenth and penultimate issue dated December 1973 featured the debut of a new series, Master of Kung Fu. Marvel’s timing was perfect as Bruce Lee was now a major star at the U.S. box office and David Carradine’s Kung Fu series was a critical and ratings success on the small screen.

Marvel had optioned the rights to Sax Rohmer’s Fu Manchu characters several years before when Pyramid paperback reprints of the 13 Rohmer novels were selling strong thanks to the popularity of the Christopher Lee film series. Marvel already had their own Fu Manchu clones in the form of the Yellow Claw and the Mandarin, but Master of Kung Fu gave them the opportunity to build a contemporary martial arts title out of a sequel to Rohmer’s highly influential thriller series.

Adventures in Bronze
News update from Will Murray!

With the release of my latest Doc Savage novel, Glare of the Gorgon, and the announcement that Dwayne Johnson will be playing the Man of Bronze in an upcoming Sony Doc Savage film, we thought this would be perfect time to update our loyal customers on our future plans.

Six years ago in the summer of 2011, Altus Press launched the Wild Adventures of Doc Savage with The Desert Demons, based in an unpublished Lester Dent manuscript. Since then, we've produced 12 new novels and reprinted 6 others. Doc Savage has battled King Kong and encountered his dark counterpart, The Shadow, in two stupendous crossovers, Skull Island and The Sinister Shadow. 

Last summer, we launched the Wild Adventures of Tarzan, a new series of exploits that will continue under the auspices of Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc.’s. publishing imprint.

This summer, we will launch the Wild Adventures of King Kong, in which the iconic monster battles Tarzan of the Apes. King Kong Vs. Tarzan tells the trilling untold story of the capture of Kong and his transport to America via Africa. 

Later this year, we will release Six Scarlet Scorpions, the first in The Wild Adventures of Pat Savage. That's right, Doc’s adventurous cousin, Patricia, is getting her own series of books. If readers support this new venture, we might release one Pat novel every year or so.

We will wrap up 2016 with Mr. Calamity, our 13th new Doc Savage novel.

And of course there is also the growing line of Doc Savage audiobooks currently being released by Radio Archives. This is an ongoing series.

Next year, we have exciting plans, including a rematch between Doc and The Shadow, and some other surprises.

The Wild Adventures series has expanded far beyond our original expectations, and we couldn’t have done it without you all. So we want to thank  our customers for their support over the last six years. Great things lie ahead!



Adventures in Bronze
GLARE OF THE GORGON
Hardcover, softcover and eBook are now available!
 

Why did a desperate man shave his head before visiting Doc Savage headquarters, only to be struck down, his pulsing brain turned to inert stone? What sinister secret did his strange slaying silence? And how was a lizard-green shadow resembling Medusa branded on Doc’s office wall?

These are only some of the questions confronting the Man of Bronze as he pursues a grisly trail of petrified corpses to post-Prohibition Chicago, whose criminal underworld is being terrorized by a serpent-haired demon engaged in a seemingly senseless slaughter spree whose ultimate target will shake Doc Savage’s men to their core.

Suspects are many, clues baffling. Death and danger lurks everywhere they turn—symbolized by the silhouette of a faceless Gorgon.

From the concrete canyons of Manhattan to the coal fields of Illinois, Doc Savage tracks a phantom fiend the likes of which he has never before hunted. Or is he the one being hunted?

ADVENTURES IN THE STRAND: ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE & THE STRAND MAGAZINE - Now available!
by Mike Ashley

Conan Doyle’s name is synonymous with The Strand magazine, chiefly because of the Sherlock Holmes stories but also due to many of his other contributions, such as the Professor Challenger stories, his articles on spiritualism and fairies, and his coverage of the major battles of World War I. From 1891 until his death in 1930, almost 300 contributions by Doyle were published in The Strand, including 120 stories, 9 serialized novels, and dozens of other items including poetry and interviews. It is impossible fully to appreciate Conan Doyle’s artistic development without considering the context of The Strand, as it published almost all of his most memorable and important stories, but it also published essays, commentary and other works that have become unjustly forgotten. Doyle’s contributions highlight, for example, his abilities as a sportsman, an interest which frequently found its way into his fiction. This study charts his outlook and views, examines his shifting reputation during his lifetime, and assesses how Doyle’s contributions to The Strand fit into his overall output as a writer. Ashley uncovers hidden aspects of Doyle’s writings that reveal him to be a more broadly talented writer than he is often given credit for.

Airship 27 Productions
BROTHER BONES: THE MOVIE
Coming soon!

Franklin-Husser Entertainment LLC is thrilled to announce that they have reached out to New Pulp publisher Airship 27 in order to option the rights to Ron Fortier's character, Brother Bones, for an upcoming feature film.

“Brother Bones the Undead Avenger is a character I created over ten years ago,” Fortier recalls. “I just wanted to do my own homage to such great gun-totting vigilantes like the Shadow and the Spider. Little did I realize he would become so popular with our readers. They are forever clamoring for more of his macabre adventures.”

“New Pulp has such untapped potential,” co-founder Erik Franklin said. “There are so many vibrant, original characters that would be perfect for a cinematic adaption. Brother Bones has all that you could want in a story: exciting visuals, well-drawn characters, and each page is a cliff-hangar.”

“When Erik first showed me the book I immediately thought that Brother Bones would make a great movie.” Daniel Husser, co-founder of Franklin-Husser Entertainment LLC, commented. “The story is dark and full of action so it's perfect for us. Since we are working with Ron Fortier's creation, it is absolutely important to us that we stay faithful to the text. Many adaptations tend to change too much, damaging the original concept and we don't want that to happen.”

“It was very important to us to get Brother Bone's creator, Ron Fortier, involved with the project. He cares very much about his characters, and he only wants the best products to be associated with Brother Bones and Airship 27.” Erik said. “To that end, we discussed story possibilities at length, and we have determined what we think will be a great cinematic entrance for Brother Bones into the pantheon of cinematic heroes.”

A two minute test video was made and sent to Fortier to view.  “It virtually blew me away,” Fortier says. “Erik and Daniel had condensed in just two minutes what it had taken me almost four chapters to establish. They immediately captured the essence of the character and watching him come to life in that clip convinced me these two guys are going to make a fantastic Brother Bones feature. I couldn’t be more excited.”

The film is in its early planning stages, with the script being written by Ron Fortier and Erik Franklin. Seattle, Washington will double for Cape Noire, the setting in the Brother Bones novels. More details will be announced from Airship 27 and Franklin-Husser Entertainment LLC as they happen.

“This is going to be a big step forward for both our companies, and we look forward to presenting Brother Bones on the silver screen.” said Erik.


Airship 27 Productions is one of the pioneers of the New Pulp Movement and has been in operation for the past ten years producing beautiful quality novels and anthologies featuring both classic public domain and new pulp heroes.  Thus far there have been three Brother Bones books, a one shot comic book. Marshal Made Collectibles has produced several versions of Brother Bones action figures and soon Scaldcrow Games will be releasing an rpg module, “Ron Fortier’s Cape Noire” based on the Brother Bones adventures.  www.airship27.com

Franklin-Husser Entertainment LLC, is an independent film production company based in Seattle, Washington.  Founded by life-long friends Erik Franklin and Daniel Husser, they share a love of escapist cinema, and have decided to create feature films dedicated to bringing exciting tales of action, suspense, and adventure to audiences around the world. With interesting twists on traditional genres, Franklin-Husser Entertainment LLC, combines intelligent screenplays with high-impact action. The company primarily produces action, sci-fi, comedy, martial arts and horror films, but keep their minds open to new and exciting ideas and creative possibilities.

In 1927 German filmmaker Fritz Lang brought to the screen one of the most ground breaking sci-fi melodramas of all time based on the screenplay he co-wrote with his wife, novelist Thea von Harbou.  Set in a futuristic urban dystopia, the story follows the attempts of Freder, the son of the city’s ruler, and Maria, a citizen of the lower levels, to bridge the gulf separating the economic classes of the city. It is regarded as a classic and one of the first full-length movies in the genre.

“I first saw the film at the World Science Fiction Convention years ago,” reports Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “It simply blew me away.  That a film this sophisticated and brilliant could be realized during the earliest days of movie making was astounding. Those images of that futuristic city and its underlying cautionary tale simply became a part of me. I never forgot them. To put together this anthology and revisit that world has been something truly special for all of us here at Airship 27. We hope our fans will enjoy our efforts here.”

Now five visionary new pulp writers have envisioned four dramatic tales which unfold in this amazing world prior to the events of that film. The book begins with a special introductory essay by author Fred Lang, Jr. and then William & Michael Maynard join forces with Michael Panush, Kevin Noel Olson and Erik Franklin to guide readers back to those vaulted, shining Towers of Metropolis in this new collection inspired by Lang’s masterpiece.

Award winning Metropolis enthusiast Michael Kaluta provides the cover with artist Pedro Cruz offering twelve amazing interior illustrations.  All beautifully assembled by Airship 27 Art Director Rob Davis to create a book any fan of the film will want for their personal library.

“Metropolis is something truly unique in the annals of science fiction history,” Fortier concludes. “I believe we’ve done it justice with The Towers of Metropolis.”

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
 Blood 'N' Thunder 46/47 (Winter-Spring 2016)
Now available for immediate shipping!

The 230 pages of this double issue — the first BnT of 2016 — is crammed with articles, reviews, and reprints.

The feature articles boast BnT‘s usual combination of intensive research and passionate writing. The cover story is Ed Hulse’s lengthy examination of the two Columbia serials featuring The Spider, one of pulpdom’s greatest heroes. Rick Lai details the numerous pulp references in The Sinister Shadow, Will Murray’s recent novel pitting Doc Savage against The Shadow. Robert E. Howard scholar Morgan Holmes chronicles the efforts of Conan’s creator to break into the pulp magazines published by William Clayton. Old-Time Radio authority Karl Schadow offers a history of the little-known Stay Tuned for Terror, the series written by Robert Bloch and adapted primarily from his pulp stories. Bruce Dettman provides an overview of the various characters marketed to several mediums as The Falcon.

The issue’s department installments have the usual variety. “Tricks of the Trade” presents a 1932 Writer’s Digest piece on the Western-pulp market. Horror novelist and filmmaker S. Craig Zahler reviews two 1932 issues of Weird Tales in “Off the Shelf.” In “Airwave Adventures” Martin Grams writes about lost episodes of the Mysterious Traveler, a pulpish radio series that became a fiction magazine. Ed Hulse discusses one of the first movie serials, 1914’s The Million Dollar Mystery, in “Cliffhanger Classics.” And Dave Smith covers one of the great air-war hero pulps, The Lone Eagle, in “Series Spotlight.”

The reprint section begins with an 80th-anniversary tribute to the 1936 Flash Gordon serial: Rare promotional material originally published in Universal Weekly, the Universal Pictures trade paper circulated to exhibitors. Our fiction reprint is “Drunk, Disorderly, and Dead,” a 1942 Robert Leslie Bellem mystery featuring Dan Turner, Hollywood Detective. Finally, we publish long-unseen court documents relating to a Popular Publications lawsuit involving Black Mask magazine.

BnT #46/47 has the usual complement of illustrations — pulp cover reproductions, vintage movie stills, original art, and so on.

It covers some 190 "chapter plays" released by production and distribution entities such as Universal, Vitagraph, Mutual, Arrow, Rayart, and Mascot, along with member companies of the Edison Trust and various fly-by-night independent operators.Among the legendary serial stars whose output is documented and analyzed are Francis Ford and Grace Cunard, Ben Wilson and Neva Gerber, Helen Holmes, Eddie Polo, Marie Walcamp, William Desmond, William Duncan, Eileen Sedgwick, Joe Bonomo, Elmo Lincoln, Ann Little, Jack Daugherty, Juanita Hansen, and Louise Lorraine. Serials that starred favorites from the sports and theatrical worlds — Harry Houdini, Billie Burke, "Gentleman Jim" Corbett, Benny Leonard, and Maurice "Lefty" Flynn, to name a few — are also covered.

At a length of nearly 160,000 words, illustrated with hundreds of rare stills, posters, lobby cards, magazine ads and even frame blowups from surviving film elements, HANDSOME HEROES AND VICIOUS VILLAINS

THE BLACK FLAME

Toward the end of the Twentieth Century-so say historians of the age of the Second Enlightenment-civilization died in a blaze of atomic and bacterial warfare. Barbarism followed the holocaust, the Dark Centuries during which humanity rested and prepared for a charge to new heights of development. Amid the ruins of one civilization, another and greater slowly grew.

Old records were rediscovered, new knowledge was added to that of the Ancients. Then came the discovery of immortality, and Joaquin Smith and his especially beautiful sister, Margaret, began their search for power-and the story of the Black Flame begins. Black Margot, they called her, this most beautiful woman of the Immortals, "a black flame blowing cold across the world." The Black Flame, loved by men, hated by women-vibrantly alive, yet bored with living-restless as though demon-driven-who did not age, who remains untouched by the passing of time. In Margot of Urbs, Stanley G. Weinbaum has created one of the most fascinating characters in science fiction.

There are others-good, honest Hull Tarvish of the "mountainies"-old Einar, who rediscovers atomic energy-Tim Connor, who awakens from a thousand year sleep, a victim of enforced electrolepsis, a man from the forgotten past-Evanie Sair, the Sorceress-Joaquin Smith, the Master-Martin Sair, the giver of life-Jan Orm who leads a revolution, and others.

Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days
Philip José Farmer’s The Other Log of Phileas Fogg
THEY WERE ONLY THE BEGINNING!


In 2014, Meteor House published Phileas Fogg and the War of Shadows by Josh Reynolds, a sequel to Philip José Farmer’s The Other Log of Phileas Fogg. 2016 brings us Reynolds’ Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra, furthering the exploits of Jules Verne’s most iconic hero.

Now, join Meteor House as Win Scott Eckert reveals a hitherto unknown chapter in Fogg’s celebrated round-the-world journey!

December 1872. Phileas Fogg, the lovely Aouda, and his faithful manservant Passepartout, are nearing the end of their frenzied eighty-day dash around the world…

One wouldn’t think, as Fogg and Co. speed across North America on the transcontinental railroad, that they would have time to befriend a mysterious masked lawman, match wits with a long-lived criminal mastermind and his tong, and battle anti-Chinese sentiment in Old West coal mining communities.

One would be wrong.

Win Scott Eckert pulls back the veil on the previously untold tale of Mr. Phileas Fogg’s fateful encounter with the legendary masked rider of the plains and his faithful companion—an episode suppressed (with good reason!) by M. Verne himself from the final publication of his classic Around the World in Eighty Days.

Meteor House is proud to present our first limited edition chapbook, a 9,800 word adventure signed by Win Scott Eckert. As with most of our books, the print run will be determined by the number of books preordered. Only a small number will be printed beyond the preorders, so to ensure you don’t miss out, be sure to order no later than July 5th.

And here is an added bonus: if you have preordered any of our forthcoming titles, this chapbook has free shipping (and will be sent to you, along with your other book(s), after FarmerCon in early August).

BLACK WINGS V

Now available for pre-order!

This is still listed as upcoming. Mike Chomko is accepting pre-orders for the book.

This fifth instalment of S. T. Joshi’s critically acclaimed Black Wings series features twenty stories that use H. P. Lovecraft’s mythos as the basis for imaginative ventures into the weird and terrifying. One of the central themes in Lovecraft’s work is the problematical nature of science in human affairs, and in this volume we find stories by Caitlín R. Kiernan, Lynne Jamneck, and Donald R. Burleson where scientists come face to face with the appalling implications of their discoveries.

Lovecraft was a master of the “sense of place,” inventing imaginary towns in New England with a rich and sinister history stretching back centuries. In this book, Jonathan Thomas, W. H. Pugmire, and Sunni K Brock bring Lovecraft’s towns of Arkham, Kingsport, and Innsmouth to life. Sam Gafford, Darrell Schweitzer, and Stephen Woodworth evoke terror in other corners of the American continent, while British writers David Hambling and John Reppion find Lovecraftian horror in little-known towns in England. The world-building that led Lovecraft to fashion an entire universe set in the realm of dreams is duplicated in tales by Cody Goodfellow, Mark Howard Jones, and Donald Tyson.

Madness is always an occupational hazard of the “searchers after horror” who populate Lovecraft’s tales. In this volume, stories by Robert H. Waugh, Nicole Cushing, and Nancy Kilpatrick searingly display the psychological aberrations of characters as they encounter the bizarre. Lovecraft himself has become an iconic character, and his gaunt, lantern-jawed figure stalks the tales by Jason C. Eckhardt and Mollie L. Burleson. This volume concludes, as did its predecessor, with a long poem by Wade German, one of the most dynamic figures in a remarkable renaissance of weird poetry inspired by the work of Lovecraft and his colleagues.

Black Wings V can 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.

Thursday, July 21 through Sunday, July 24, 2016


Are you thinking about attending PulpFest 2016? You’re probably wondering what to expect from this year’s convention. PulpFest is known for its great programming and the line-up that we’re planning for our 2016 convention is shaping up to be one of our best.

We’ll be saluting a wide range of anniversaries at this summer’s pulp con: the tenth anniversary of Sanctum Books; the eightieth anniversary of THE WHISPERER and THE SKIPPER; the ninetieth anniversary of AMAZING STORIES, the first science-fiction pulp; the hundredth anniversary of the specialty pulp; and the 120th anniversary of THE ARGOSY, the original pulp magazine!



The Guest of Honor for PulpFest 2016 will be author, editor, musician, and science-fiction and pulp fan Ted White.

Born February 4, 1938, Theodore Edwin White is a Hugo Award-winning American writer, best known as a science-fiction author and editor and as a fan and music critic. In addition to books and stories written under his own name, he has also co-authored novels with Dave van Arnam as Ron Archer, and with Terry Carr as Norman Edwards.

Since the time he was a teenager, White has been a prolific contributor to science-fiction fanzines, and in 1968 he won the Hugo Award for Best Fan Writer. Despite his considerable professional credits, White maintains that his achievements in fandom mean more to him than anything else he has done. In 1953, he edited and published ZIP, the first of his many fanzines. In 1956–57, he co-edited STELLAR with Larry Stark; followed by VOID in 1960, joining founding editors Gregory and James Benford; plus MINAC, EGOBOO, and others. He was also a regular columnist for YANDRO and Richard E. Geis’ PSYCHOTIC/SF REVIEW and has been active in numerous fan events, including the organizing of the 1967 World Science Fiction Convention in New York City as co-chairman. He still remains active on several fandom- and fanzine-oriented electronic mailing lists.

In 1959, at the age of 21, White moved from Baltimore to New York City with his first wife, Sylvia Dees White. That year, he began writing music criticism for METRONOME and a column for Tom Wilson’s JAZZ GUIDE (later 33 GUIDE). As a music critic, he expanded into jazz writing and journalism for ROGUE, along with record liner notes, concert reviews and interviews. He was the only person to record an interview with Eric Dolphy, the American jazz alto saxophonist, flautist, and bass clarinetist. From 1977 through 1979 as Dr. Progresso, he did the Friday afternoon DR. PROGRESSO radio show on WGTB-FM. Following the advent of the Internet, White became the music editor of the Collecting Channel website in 1999, and he continues to maintain his own website of music commentary under his Dr. Progresso pseudonym.


White’s first professional sale as a writer was a short vignette sold to PLAYBOY in 1959. Two stories released on the same day — “Phoenix,” written by Ted White and revised by Marion Zimmer Bradley for the February 1963 AMAZING STORIES and “I, Executioner,” co-authored by Terry Carr for the March 1963 IF (WORLDS OF SCIENCE FICTION) — have been cited by our guest as his first-published stories. The author later expanded “Phoenix” into the novel PHOENIX PRIME, originally published in 1966 by Lancer Books. It was the first of the QANAR series — continuing with THE SORCERESS OF QAR (1966) and STAR WOLF (1971) — all published by Lancer. “I Executioner” became the opening chapter of his Ace book, ANDROID AVENGER.

Captain AmericaTed’s first novel — INVASION FROM 2500 — was written in collaboration with Terry Carr under the pseudonym Norman Edwards. It was published in 1964. Through 1978 he wrote two science-fiction series and eleven stand-alone novels, including one Captain America novel — THE GREAT GOLD STEAL. It was published by Bantam Books and featured a nod to its pulp forebears: one of the bad guys is named Andrew “Monk” Mayfair. Two of White’s novels were written in collaboration with Dave van Arnam, one with David Bischoff and one — using White’s Doc Phoenix character — with Marv Wolfman. Ted White was a 1966 Nebula-Award nominee for his short story, “The Peacock King,” written with Larry McCombs. He was also instrumental in kick-starting the professional careers of other writers, notably Lee Hoffman. Still writing at nearly seventy-eight years of age, White has had a number of short stories published in recent years. “The Uncertain Past” appeared in the March & April 2014 number of THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION while”The Philistine” can be found in the October 2015 issue of ANALOG SCIENCE FICTION AND FACT.

Our Guest of Honor’s editorial career began as an assistant and associate editor at THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION from 1963 to 1968. He also served as an associate editor at Lancer Books, working under Larry Shaw. From October 1968 until October 1978, Ted White edited AMAZING STORIES and FANTASTIC, upgrading the quality of both magazine’s fiction while showcasing a variety of talented illustrators. According to author, anthologist, and science-fiction and popular-culture historian, Mike Ashley, White ushered “AMAZING into a silver, if not a golden, age.” He also edited two 1973 anthologies, THE BEST FROM AMAZING STORIES and THE BEST FROM FANTASTIC. Both were published by Manor Books.

Ted White’s reputation as an editor impressed the publishers of HEAVY METAL who hired him in 1979 to introduce non-fiction into the magazine. White immediately hired four columnists — Jay Kinney, Lou Stathis, Steve Brown and Bhob Stewart — to cover, respectively, underground comics, music, science fiction, and movies. HEAVY METAL continued to feature mainly graphic stories during White’s tenure as the new editor wove the text into the graphic art, rather than segregating it into a separate section. In 1984-85, Ted White served as Editorial Director for STARDATE, a multi-media science-fiction magazine edited by David Bischoff.

Ted became a pulp collector as a teenager. He owns most of the science-fiction pulps from the 1940s and many from the twenties and thirties. Among his holdings are complete runs of SCIENCE WONDER STORIES and AIR WONDER STORIES, both issues of MIRACLE SCIENCE AND FANTASY STORIES, all the Futurian-edited magazines, the complete run of CAPTAIN FUTURE, and many other titles. His library of pulp and science-fiction digests is complete from 1951 through the nineties. He also owns many single-character pulps, including all but one issue of DOC SAVAGE MAGAZINE and a couple dozen issues of THE SHADOW. He also has many issues of THE AVENGER, CAPTAIN ZERO, THE PHANTOM DETECTIVE, THE WHISPERER, and other hero pulps in his collection.

White also plays keyboards and saxophone. He currently performs with the Washington, DC area improvisational group Conduit. Although we’d love to have him play, Ted will be speaking to PulpFest attendees during our evening programming about his career, fandom, pulps, science fiction, and AMAZING STORIES. His Guest of Honor speech will take place on Friday, July 22nd in the PulpFest programming room at the Hyatt Regency Columbus. We hope to see you at the convention.

Sisters of Tomorrow: The First Women of Science Fiction (Early Classics of Science Fiction) - Now available!
by Lisa Yaszek  (Editor), Patrick B. Sharp  (Editor)


For nearly half a century, feminist scholars, writers, and fans have successfully challenged the notion that science fiction is all about “boys and their toys,” pointing to authors such as Mary Shelley, Clare Winger Harris, and Judith Merril as proof that women have always been part of the genre. Continuing this tradition, Sisters of Tomorrow: The First Women of Science Fiction offers readers a comprehensive selection of works by genre luminaries, including author C. L. Moore, artist Margaret Brundage, and others who were well known in their day, including poet Julia Boynton Green, science journalist L. Taylor Hansen, and editor Mary Gnaedinger. Providing insightful commentary and context, this anthology documents how women in the early twentieth century contributed to the pulp-magazine community and showcases the content they produced, including short stories, editorial work, illustrations, poetry, and science journalism. Yaszek and Sharp’s critical annotation and author biographies link women’s work in the early science fiction community to larger patterns of feminine literary and cultural production in turn-of-the-twentieth-century America. In a concluding essay, the award-winning author Kathleen Ann Goonan considers such work in relation to the history of women in science and engineering and to the contemporary science fiction community itself.

Series: Early Classics of Science Fiction
