The first new Virgil Finlay art book in twenty years will feature the collections of Robert Weinberg, Doug Ellis, Glynn Crain and Robert K. Wiener.

Beginning today, a Kickstarter Campaign has been launched to help defray costs in publishing THE COLLECTORS' BOOK OF VIRGIL FINLAY an art book featuring Virgil Finlay pieces from the collections of Robert Weinberg, Doug Ellis, Glynn Crain, and Robert K. Wiener.

Virgil Finlay was the most accomplished and outstanding line artist in American SF-Fantasy history. From 1936-1971 he illustrated an astounding amount of pulp fiction.  Beginning at WEIRD TALES, his interior art appeared in 62 WT issues and he painted 19 covers. His run only ended when the magazine did in 1954. He didn't stop there. For years afterward his illustrations appeared in almost every genre magazine: AMAZING, STRANGE STORIES, FAMOUS FANTASTIC MYSTERIES, FANTASTIC NOVELS, FANTASTIC UNIVERSE, IF, GALAXY and more. Through A. Merritt, he was hired as a staff artist for THE AMERICAN WEEKLY magazine and eventually worked for astrology magazines in the 1950s and 1960s.  In 1953, he won the Hugo Award for Best Interior Illustrator. He did the dust jacket art for Arkham House Publishers THE OUTSIDER AND OTHERS and ROADS. He also illustrated the hardcover of A. Merritt's THE SHIP OF ISHTAR, worked for comics, and so much more. About 2500 pieces have been catalogued. He passed away in 1971 after a harsh bout with cancer. In 1996, he was awarded the Retro Hugo as Best Professional Artist of 1945. In 2012, Virgil Finlay was also posthumously inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame.

Slated for release at the World Fantasy Convention's Virgil Finlay Centenary celebration on November 6-9, 2014, THE COLLECTORS' BOOK OF VIRGIL FINLAY stands to be a milestone in the history of sf-fantasy art publishing. It will be the first to have Finlay art scanned in high resolution directly from originals. It will contain 35 full color paintings by the artist, the largest collection of Finlay's color work ever assembled in print. It will also contain another 13 pages of additional color work, ranging from 2-color art pieces done for the Doubleday Science Fiction Book Clubs' solicitations to full-color cover roughs.

The Kickstarter campaign is schedule to end on Virgil Finlay's actual Centenary Birthday: July 23, 2014. The American Fantasy Press, Bob Garcia, and Bob Weinberg Facebook pages will hold a virtual birthday party for the artist with give-a-ways and more to celebrate.  The link for the Kickstarter is: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/565278014/the-collectors-book-of-virgil-finlay

Clive Cussler: The Eye of Heaven (A Fargo Adventure) - Now available!
With Dirk Cussler

While investigating a toxic outbreak in the Caribbean Sea that may ultimately threaten the United States, Pitt unwittingly becomes involved in something even more dangerous—a post-Castro power struggle for the control of Cuba. Meanwhile, Pitt’s children, marine engineer Dirk and oceanographer Summer, are on an investigation of their own, chasing an Aztec stone that may reveal the whereabouts of a vast historical Aztec treasure. The problem is, that stone was believed to have been destroyed on the battleship Maine in Havana Harbor in 1898, which brings them both to Cuba as well—and squarely into harm’s way. The three of them have been in desperate situations before . . . but perhaps never quite as dire as the one facing them now.

CTHULHU: DEEP DOWN UNDER - Now online!
24 tales by Australian genre writers, 24 colour illustrations. Lovecraftian Horror set Down Under!

We have created an exciting Australian Horror Anthology: CTHULHU: DEEP DOWN UNDER. 
Hundreds of pages of superb storytelling by 24 of the best Australian genre writers, backed by 24 brilliant artists producing amazing full colour plates for the book.

We need to pay the contributors, and we need to pay for a print run and a marketing campaign so that this amazing collection can be unleashed.

The collection has been edited by respected and experienced horror fiction writers and editors:  Steve Proposch (Bloodsongs magazine, current founder, editor Trouble magazine); Bryce Stevens (Terror Australis magazine, Bloodsongs magazine), and Christopher Sequeira (Terror Australis magazine, Sequence Productions comics). 

The Writers represent the cream of the Australian dark fantasy scene, with the finest genre novelists and screenwriters and even song lyricists amongst them: STEVE KILBEY, KAARON WARREN, AARON STERNS, JANEEN WEBB, JASON NAHRUNG, LUCY SUSSEX, JASON FRANKS, B. MICHAEL RADBURN, ROBERT HOOD, DMETRI KAKMI and many more.

The artists are amongst the finest in speculative vision-making: W. CHEW CHAN, NICK STATHOPOULOS, BRUCE MUTARD, SARAH ELLERTON, PAUL MASON, GAVIN L. O'KEEFE and many more.

Perhaps the greatest living practitioner of the weird story, and certainly the most lauded exemplar of the Lovecraftian story, RAMSEY CAMPBELL, has written an original introduction just for this collection, entitled LOVECRAFT'S MONSTER.

We need to get as close as we can to our goal of $75,000 to take this book to the final stages of commercial reality and produce decent marketing and print runs.

New material will be appearing on the last Friday of each month (which means we'll have more new stuff at the end of February). 
In a few month  s, we will also be offering ebooks: on the site (in PDF) and at Amazon and B&N in their proprietary formats.


FUTURES PAST: A Visual History of Science Fiction
1926: The Birth of Modern Science Fiction
Now available in e-book PDF format!


Welcome to one of the largest and most ambitious projects ever attempted in the field of science fiction.  In the pages of FUTURES PAST we will be covering, in detail, the birth and development of modern science fiction over its first 50 years – from 1926 to 1975.  Designed in a yearbook format, each issue of FUTURES PAST will cover all the works, people, organizations and events in detailed chronological order. 

Relive novels such as LAST AND FIRST MEN, GALACTIC PATROL, and WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE all the way to more recent classics such as 1984, DUNE, and THE LEFT HAND OF DARKNESS. 

Follow the early careers of legends such as Bradbury, Clarke, Heinlein, Sturgeon, Asimov, Leinster and many others, year by year, story by story and novel by novel.

Learn about and even listen to hundreds of “old time radio” plays produced for shows such as DIMENSION X and BEYOND TOMORROW. 

Attend the major conventions such as the first Worldcon held in New York City in 1939.  Read all the details, the award winners and the activities.  See photos and even video taken at some of the later conventions.  Hear about it from the people who were there.

There will even be coverage of amateur clubs and fanzines over the years, beginning with THE COMET published in 1930 by the Science Correspondence Club in Chicago.

Yes, every book, every magazine, every film, convention, and so much more!  FUTURES PAST is dedicated to all those amazing people who helped to shape our modern world by giving us a sense of wonder, by showing us possible futures and addressing social issues long before they touched the mainstream, and by simply daring to ask, “what if…”  Our goal at FUTURES PAST is to keep alive the people, works and memories of a great genre and introduce them to a whole new generation of readers, thinkers and dreamers.


 When completed, this series will be the most comprehensive history of the field ever undertaken. 

FUTURES PAST is available at the link below as a PDF download for $6.00, as well as a limited content review copy for FREE
In the next few months we will be pursuing production of physical editions for sale as well.

 The Illustrated Press
Walter Baumhofer by David Saunders

Pulp art historian David Saunders returns with a lavish new hardcover art book chronicling the life and work of Walter Baumhofer.

A Progress Report!
The book is currently en route from the printer, and should be shipping sometime in mid-November.

In the world of the pulp magazines, the name of Walter Baumhofer has always resonated with a solemn and respectful gravitas. His masterful cover paintings from the golden era of Dime Detective, Dime Mystery, Dime Western, Adventure, Pete Rice, Doc Savage, and The Spider were among the most iconic images in pulp art history. The design and execution of his work combined an impressive combination of sensational brushwork with a theatrical flair for composing striking scenes of intriguing villains, rugged heroes, and steadfast women. His creative ambitions elevated him from the low-paying field of the pulp magazines into the respectable and higher-paying realm of the slick magazine industry. When he quit the pulps, he left behind a legacy of innovative design and high standards that the next generation would struggle in his wake to attain. Although he is renowned for his paintings of pulp magazine covers, the actual number of years he worked in the field is but one chapter in a lifelong history of creative accomplishments. That full story has never been told—until now.

Pulp and illustration art historian David Saunders has written an insightful biography, chronicling the life and work of this influential artist.
This is the consummate reference book on the artist, filled with over 300 reproductions of original art, rare proof sheets, working drawings, reference photos, as well as historic family photos. 

This book will be limited to 1000 copies. It is 224 pages, 9”x12”, full-color on premium glossy stock, hardbound with dust jacket for $44.95.

Unlike previous titles from The Illustrated Press, this book will not be offered through Amazon, so it will never be offered at a discounted price (unless you can find a "used" copy.)
If you want this book new, you will have to buy it directly from The Illustrated Press or your local comic shop.
In other words, don't worry about seeing it listed on Amazon later for $26.
That is not going to happen!

PRE-ORDER TODAY! This book begins shipping in November 2014 - $44.95


You can pre-order the book at your local comic shop.
The Diamond Item Code is SEP141860.


The Illustrated Press
THE GOLDEN AGE
Now available for pre-order at Kickstarter.com!


This new hardcover book showcases some of the finest artworks from the Golden Age of Illustration, circa 1880-1950.

From 1880 to 1950, during the "Golden Age" of illustration, spectacularly talented artists produced hundreds of thousands of images for magazines, calendars, books, advertisements, and much more. In the days before radio, the movies, or television dominated the entertainment world, PRINT was the preeminent media, and the illustrated magazine cover was at the center stage of American visual culture.

Our new book celebrates this glorious period in art history, lavishly presenting the work of 154 artists with 218 full page reproductions of original paintings, some of the finest images produced during the period, all photographed directly from the original art. Not a text book or a history book, this new volume is a stunning PICTURE book, filled to the brim with eye-popping visuals. If you are a fan of illustration art, this book was made for you!



As the publisher of Illustration magazine, over the years I have been able to assemble an extensive archive of scans of original paintings from every corner of illustration history. Having produced 46 issues of the magazine so far, I now recognize that some of the material in my files and on my hard drives may never find their way into the magazine at all. The artist's history may be too scattered, or the quantity of original works and tear sheets are too rare, to support the "deluxe treatment" we usually give to our subjects (20 or 30 page articles are the norm for the magazine.) Rather than allow these stunning artworks to languish in the files, I've decided to pull together the "best of the best" of these photographs into one fantastic book.

ARTISTS FEATURED:
Abbey, Abbott, F. Anderson, H.N. Anderson, H. Anderson, Armstrong, Arthurs, Avati, Aylward, Barclay, Baine, Baumgartner, Beall, Becher, Benda, Bergey, Betts, Biggs, Bleser, Bolles, Booth, Brangwyn, Bransom, Brehm, Brickdale, Briggs, Brown, Brown, Bull, Burns, Campbell, Carter, Castaigne, Chambers, Christy, Clark, Clinedinst, Coffin, Coll, Content, Cooper, Cornwell, Cox, Crandell, Dohanos, Dryden, Dulac, Dunn, Eastman, Enright, Everett, Falter, Fawcett, Fischer, Fisher, Flagg, Flato, Flanagan, Flint, Fogarty, Fuller, Georgi, Giguere, Gillespie, Godwin, Goodwin, Granville-Smith, Green, Gruger, Harding, Heitland, Herbst, Herndon, Henry, Hintermeister, Hinton, Hoff, Hoffman, Hoskins, Humphrey, Hunt, Hunter, Hurst, Iverd, Jackson, Keller, Kernan, Kihn, Koerner, Korder, Lagatta, Lee, Leyendecker, Leyendecker, Loomis, Louderback, Lovell, Lowell, Mantania, Matteson, McMein, Michelson, Moore, O’Neill, Otto, Parker, Parrish, Paus, Penfield, Phillips, Pogany, Price, Pyle, Pyle, Rackham, Raleigh, Reilly, Reusswig, Roberts, Rockwell, Rozen, Rozen, Schaeffer, Schoonover, Schuyler, Scott, Sewell, Sheppard, D.

This book will be limited to 1000 copies. It is 224 pages, 9”x12”, full-color on premium glossy stock, hardbound with dust jacket.

A Special Edition version of the book is available, limited to 100 copies.These are presented in a golden yellow slipcase with white stamped lettering, signed and numbered by editor Daniel Zimmer, with a bookplate affixed to the front endpapers.

By pledging through Kickstarter you will receive a copy of the book for only $40 delivered anywhere in the U.S. (Early Birds can get the book for only $35, if you act fast!) The retail cost of the regular unsigned edition (available after this Kickstarter campaign ends) will be $44.95 plus postage.


Unlike previous titles from The Illustrated Press, this book will not be offered through Amazon, so it will never be offered at a discounted price (unless you can find a "used" copy.) If you want this book new, you will have to buy it directly from The Illustrated Press. In other words, don't worry about funding the book for $40 and then turning around and seeing it listed on Amazon later for $26. That is not going to happen.

ZAMBA OF THE JUNGLE BOOK 1:
Zamba and the Silver Globe


In search of a fabulous horde of gold, Zamba, the legendary King of the Gorillas, visits Ophir. This city, built by descendants of the Lost Continent of Atlantis, lies in a remote African valley. Here he meets the Followers, evil creatures of another planet that attempt to diabolically destroy the one man who stands between them and their plans for the Earth. With only a handful of devoted Wazimba tribesmen and his gorilla companions, Zamba of the Jungle struggles against both the extraterrestrial monsters and Ophir's green priests.

This book originally appeared as "Tarzan and the Silver Globe". It was removed from the marketplace as an illegal entry in the Tarzan series. Our version completely removes all references to the Tarzan jungle world.

The Pulps
The Definitive Survey of a Re-Discovered American Genre
from the Lesser Collection at the New Britain Museum of American Art.
Sensational paintings that gripped the Depression-era public
with their themes of adventure, mystery, horror, sci-fi and damsels in distress.

October 03 through December 26!

Now, for the first time, the world’s largest collection of Pulp Cover Art is presented in a comprehensive touring exhibition of the original paintings and the magazine covers they became.
 
The exhibition features Tarzan, The Shadow, Secret Agent X, The Mysterious Wu-Fang, The Spider, Doc Savage, The Scorpion, The Whisperer, The Black Mask, and The Lone Ranger.
 
Often described as unrepentant, unapologetic, unbridled and under-appreciated… these are the vivid and daring period illustrations which became the source of the visual language of today’s popular cinema (imaginative movies like Avatar and sensual films like Y Tu Mamá También), comic books, and multi-million copy video games.
 
In riveting and attention-grabbing imagery, the selected works reflect the subconscious urges of an economically deprived and sexually repressed generation. They set the stage decades ago for the expression of today’s liberated consumer culture. Having influenced generations of artists and writers, Pulp Cover Art has long been overlooked due to its subject matter, genre clichés, and rarity of existing examples.
 
This exhibition is the first in-depth look at these incredible yet misunderstood works of art, some of which, due to their controversial content, have not been seen in public since the Roaring Twenties. This definitive survey of sweeping scope and range explores the subjects and influential work of the artists who shaped American popular culture and the creative landscape for generations to come.
 
Featuring stunning art by the masters of the genre – Tom Lovell, J. Allen St. John, Virgil Finlay, Hannes Bok, Margaret Brundage, Rafael de Soto, and Enoch Bolles – the exhibition is culled from the world’s largest collection of Pulp Art at the New Britain Museum of American Art and documents Depression-era fantasy as depicted on the covers of popular literature.
 
The content recognizes the rebirth of interest in this genre demonstrated by the surge in new publications, nostalgia events, collectors and reproductions of original pulps by a growing number of new publishers.
 
As described by scholars and specialists who have studied the genre, Pulp Art … “is more than simply an American art form. It is a state of mind. Politically incorrect, shocking, offensive and obviously fun…. It is unforgettable.”

This year, we'll be joined by Robert Gould, son of pulp illustrator John Fleming Gould, who thrilled readers with his action-packed illustrations in The Spider and Dime Detective, among other titles from Popular Publications.

The Gould brothers, Robert, William and Paul continue the tradition started in 1957 by John and Mary Gould with the Bethlehem Art Gallery located at 58 Orrs Mills Rd. in Salisbury Mills NY. The Gould brothers continue to meet and expand the vision of their parents in providing New York State residents and beyond with images that capture the history and beauty of the Hudson River Valley and give the kind of high quality, friendly service expected from a family owned and operated business with fifty years experience.

PULP WINDS
Now available!


Due to popular demand, the NEW PRINT EDITION of PULP WINDS is now available!

Do you like fast-paced action-adventure, where blades flicker and flash, bullets fly, and gore spurts in proper profusion? Do you long to tread ancient city streets, where danger lurks in the shadows and the chance to chase treasure could be around the next gabled corner?  Ever want to throw off the trappings of modern day serfdom and roam free and wild, the wind in your hair, a horse beneath you, and a buxom adventuress riding by your side? Or have you dreamed of fighting ancient evil in the buried cities of alien worlds?

Well, if this sounds like your flagon of grog,  then check out the PRINT edition of  PULP WINDS, with introductions by Walter Bosley, Brad Steiger, and Gerald W. Page! These illustrated tales will take you from the antediluvian world to lost cities beneath the earth, onward to other planets around distant stars, and even to the Dark Ages, the Old West and the High Seas.

Presented in a large-format for easier reading and for viewing of the artwork, the design is reminiscent of the pulp magazines of an earlier, bygone era. Those of you familiar with Mott’s non-fiction Fortean research will find familiar themes from the realms of the unknown interwoven into, through, and beneath these stories, like the currents of a deep black subterranean river of mystery, glimpsed and occasionally revealed in all its weirdness and terror, before plunging beneath the surface again. Also included is an article on Fortean matters along the lines of the research presented in Caverns, Cauldrons, and Concealed Creatures, Mott’s definitive non-fiction opus on high strangeness, hidden beings, and real-life mysteries. Some of the stories and poems in PULP WINDS have only previously appeared in Lost Continent Library Magazine, Planetary Stories, Startling Stories, and elsewhere, and are now available in this single collection, along with a large amount of other works. If the reader finds occasional hints of the Apocrypha, the Pseudepigrapha, the Book of Skelos, the Eltdown Shards, the Necronomicon, and yes, even the mad musings of the Shaver Mystery in these tales… It is no mere happenstance!

Profusely illustrated, and reminiscent of pulp fiction and verse of a bygone era, PULP WINDS offers adventures in the truest spirit of the original pulp magazines… BLOOD AND THUNDER have returned to the literary realm. PULP WINDS will satisfy your cravings for fast-paced, haunting adventures across time and space!

This lavishly illustrated book of fiction and verse can now be obtained at Amazon.com, as well as at CreateSpace!

Steeger Properties 
Copyrights to nearly 150 pulp magazine titles obtained!  

Steeger Properties, LLC, has added to a growing collection of pulp fiction magazines by acquiring the copyrights to nearly 150 pulp magazine titles that were originally published by Popular Publications, Inc. Now claiming ownership to most of the pulp stories and characters published by both Popular Publications and The Frank A. Munsey Company, Steeger Properties, LLC, has accrued the copyrights to an estimated 6,000 issues and 30,000 stories.

“We’re proud to represent these thousands of stories and plan on introducing them to a whole new audience in as many mediums as possible,” said Matthew Moring, Manager of Steeger Properties, LLC, and Publisher of Altus Press.

Pulp fiction began in 1896 with Frank A. Munsey’s The Argosy Magazine. The 192-page magazine had untrimmed edges and the stories within the pages offered entertaining genre fiction ranging from adventure and mysteries to science fiction and westerns and everything in between. In six years, the magazine went from publishing a few thousand copies per month, to well over half a million copies. Argosy’s success was partially thanks to the variety of recurring characters it published, such as Tarzan and Zorro. Popular Publications, Inc.—the most successful pulp magazine publisher of its time—published such well-known authors as Raymond Chandler, Ray Bradbury and Erle Stanley Gardner within the pages of its own titles. In 1942, Popular Publications acquired The Frank A. Munsey Company.

Fast forward to 2014. While the popularity of pulp fiction has fluctuated over the years, the stories within the pages are classic fiction and are as influential to American pop culture as ever. They are fast paced, well-written short stories and novels featuring classic characters. There’s a huge audience that hasn’t had contact with these stories. By reintroducing them using today’s technology, these classic hard-boiled detective, mystery, western, and science fiction stories will be available for generations to come.

The Steeger Properties, LLC, catalog is available for licensing in all media.

About Steeger Properties, LLC
Steeger Properties, LLC, has accrued the copyrights to 30,000 pulp fiction stories and has plans to share its collection with a whole new audience. For more information, please visit www.steegerproperties.com and/or email Matthew Moring at steegerproperties@gmail.com.

The Solar Pons – Fu Manchu Connection

My colleague Bob Byrne has already introduced many new readers to August Derleth’s wonderfully tongue-in-cheek exploits of the unlikely-named Sherlock Holmes-inspired consulting detective, Solar Pons of Praed Street.
Derleth loved tossing in nods to mystery works outside of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s fictional universe. These included three memorable encounters with Sax Rohmer’s insidious Dr. Fu Manchu.

The adventure continues!

Now available!

In his Robin Hood trilogy; King of Sherwood, Arrow of Justice and Freedom’s Outlaw, I.A. Watson brilliantly re-imagined this classic adventure saga by setting it against England’s actual history.  Much to the delight of fans everywhere, old tales became new with fresh insights into the origins of the legend and its colorful characters.  Now Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to bring you this Special Fourth Volume as a bonus finale to that trilogy.

“After we’d published the last book of Ian Watson’s trilogy, we thought that was the end of our adventures with this great character,” explains Airship 27 Production’s Managing Editor Ron Fortier.  “Then late last year, Ian made mention that he had a bunch of short stories and essays still in his files and would we be at all interested in looking at them.  Upon inspection, we knew immediately we had enough great material for yet another book.  Talk about an early Christmas gift.”

In this volume you will find a handful of short stories published here for the very first time; maps of England and Robin Hood’s London plus more of the author’s in-depth essays on his critically acclaimed series and a Robin Hood comic strip illustrated by Pulp Factory Award winner, Artist Rob Davis.

Robin Hood – Forbidden Legend also denotes the release of new, re-edited editions of all three previous titles; each now accompanied by period maps relevant to each chapter in this glorious series.  Robin Hood and his Merry Men, heroes for all ages!  Features a cover by Jesus Rodriguez and interior illustrations by Pulp Factory Award winning artist, Rob Davis.

Beginning today, a Kickstarter Campaign has been launched to help defray costs in publishing THE COLLECTORS' BOOK OF VIRGIL FINLAY an art book featuring Virgil Finlay pieces from the collections of Robert Weinberg, Doug Ellis, Glynn Crain, and Robert K. Wiener.

The Most Complete Collection of Impossible Crime Stories Ever Assembled, with puzzling mysteries by Stephen King, Dashiell Hammett, Lawrence Block, Agatha Christie, Georges Simenon, Dorothy L. Sayers, P. G. Wodehouse, Erle Stanley Gardner, and many, many more

THE BLACK LIZARD BIG BOOK OF LOCKED-ROOM MYSTERIES: An empty desert, a lonely ski slope, a gentleman’s study, an elevator car—nowhere is a crime completely impossible.

Edgar Award–winning editor Otto Penzler has collected sixty-eight of the all-time best impossible-crime stories from almost two hundred years of the genre. In addition to the many classic examples of the form—a case of murder in a locked room or otherwise inaccessible place, solved by a brilliant sleuth—this collection expands the definition of the locked room to include tales of unbelievable thefts and incredible disappearances. Among these pages you’ll find stories with evocative titles like “The Flying Death”, “The Man From Nowhere”, “A Terribly Strange Bed”, and “The Theft of the Bermuda Penny”, not to mention appearances by some of the cleverest characters in all of crime, including Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, Georges Simenon’s Jules Maigret, Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot, Dashiell Hammett’s Continental Op, and many more.

Karl Edward Wagner's Kane
Collectors illustrated editions coming in 2015!

Bloodstone - Illustrated by Patrick Jones
In the dark swamp, where toadmen croak and cower, slumbers a secret relic of the days when creatures from the stars ruled the earth. In the booty captured in a savage raid, Kane discovers a ring, a bloodstone which is key to the power that lies buried, inactive but not dead, within the forest. The Kane series of novels and stories by Karl Edward Wagner have been recognized as dark classics of the sword and sorcery genre. Out of print for years, these new editions will appeal to collectors and fans of Karl Edward Wagner's fiction.
Dark Crusade - Illustrated by Tom Kidd
Out of the blackness of an almost-forgotten past, the cruel cult of Sataki has come to life again. Orted Ak-Ceddi, a daring outlaw, is its prophet. He draws thousands of converts to his Dark Crusade—a design to destroy mankind. His bloody cohorts conquer Shapeli, but they are defeated when they drive to vanquish the southern kingdoms. Kane is the man who can command the conquest. But Kane intends no final victory for the forces of Darkness. . . .

Darkness Weaves - Illustrated by Boco
Once Efrel was the beautiful consort of a king. Now she is a hideous creature who lives only for revenge. She has allies to aid her, but only Kane, the Mystic Swordsman, can rally her forces for battle. Only he can deliver the vengeance she has devised in her knowledge of black magic.

Death Angel's Shadow - Illustrated by Les Edwards
A quest that took Kane into forbidden wastelands, and tested his killer skills against the most brutal forces ever summoned against a single man. Kane knew he'd lost his strength, and perhaps his soul, when he entered the erotic web of the vampire. . . .

Night Winds - Illustrated by Grant Griffin
Where once the mighty Kane has passed, no one who lives forgets. Now, down the trails of past battles, Kane travels again. To the ruins of a devastated city peopled only by half men and the waif they call their queen. The past, future, and present are all one for Kane as he travels through the centuries.

1926: The Birth of Modern Science Fiction
Now available in e-book PDF format!


Welcome to one of the largest and most ambitious projects ever attempted in the field of science fiction.  In the pages of FUTURES PAST we will be covering, in detail, the birth and development of modern science fiction over its first 50 years – from 1926 to 1975.  Designed in a yearbook format, each issue of FUTURES PAST will cover all the works, people, organizations and events in detailed chronological order. 

Relive novels such as LAST AND FIRST MEN, GALACTIC PATROL, and WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE all the way to more recent classics such as 1984, DUNE, and THE LEFT HAND OF DARKNESS. 

Follow the early careers of legends such as Bradbury, Clarke, Heinlein, Sturgeon, Asimov, Leinster and many others, year by year, story by story and novel by novel.

Learn about and even listen to hundreds of “old time radio” plays produced for shows such as DIMENSION X and BEYOND TOMORROW. 

Attend the major conventions such as the first Worldcon held in New York City in 1939.  Read all the details, the award winners and the activities.  See photos and even video taken at some of the later conventions.  Hear about it from the people who were there.

There will even be coverage of amateur clubs and fanzines over the years, beginning with THE COMET published in 1930 by the Science Correspondence Club in Chicago.

Yes, every book, every magazine, every film, convention, and so much more!  FUTURES PAST is dedicated to all those amazing people who helped to shape our modern world by giving us a sense of wonder, by showing us possible futures and addressing social issues long before they touched the mainstream, and by simply daring to ask, “what if…”  Our goal at FUTURES PAST is to keep alive the people, works and memories of a great genre and introduce them to a whole new generation of readers, thinkers and dreamers.


 When completed, this series will be the most comprehensive history of the field ever undertaken. 

FUTURES PAST is available at the link below as a PDF download for $6.00, as well as a limited content review copy for FREE
In the next few months we will be pursuing production of physical editions for sale as well.

 The Illustrated Press
Walter Baumhofer by David Saunders

Pulp art historian David Saunders returns with a lavish new hardcover art book chronicling the life and work of Walter Baumhofer.

A Progress Report!
The book is currently en route from the printer, and should be shipping sometime in mid-November.

In the world of the pulp magazines, the name of Walter Baumhofer has always resonated with a solemn and respectful gravitas. His masterful cover paintings from the golden era of Dime Detective, Dime Mystery, Dime Western, Adventure, Pete Rice, Doc Savage, and The Spider were among the most iconic images in pulp art history. The design and execution of his work combined an impressive combination of sensational brushwork with a theatrical flair for composing striking scenes of intriguing villains, rugged heroes, and steadfast women. His creative ambitions elevated him from the low-paying field of the pulp magazines into the respectable and higher-paying realm of the slick magazine industry. When he quit the pulps, he left behind a legacy of innovative design and high standards that the next generation would struggle in his wake to attain. Although he is renowned for his paintings of pulp magazine covers, the actual number of years he worked in the field is but one chapter in a lifelong history of creative accomplishments. That full story has never been told—until now.

Pulp and illustration art historian David Saunders has written an insightful biography, chronicling the life and work of this influential artist.
This is the consummate reference book on the artist, filled with over 300 reproductions of original art, rare proof sheets, working drawings, reference photos, as well as historic family photos. 

This book will be limited to 1000 copies. It is 224 pages, 9”x12”, full-color on premium glossy stock, hardbound with dust jacket for $44.95.

Unlike previous titles from The Illustrated Press, this book will not be offered through Amazon, so it will never be offered at a discounted price (unless you can find a "used" copy.)
If you want this book new, you will have to buy it directly from The Illustrated Press or your local comic shop.
In other words, don't worry about seeing it listed on Amazon later for $26.
That is not going to happen!

PRE-ORDER TODAY! This book begins shipping in November 2014 - $44.95

The Illustrated Press
THE GOLDEN AGE
Now available for pre-order at Kickstarter.com!


This new hardcover book showcases some of the finest artworks from the Golden Age of Illustration, circa 1880-1950.

From 1880 to 1950, during the "Golden Age" of illustration, spectacularly talented artists produced hundreds of thousands of images for magazines, calendars, books, advertisements, and much more. In the days before radio, the movies, or television dominated the entertainment world, PRINT was the preeminent media, and the illustrated magazine cover was at the center stage of American visual culture.

Our new book celebrates this glorious period in art history, lavishly presenting the work of 154 artists with 218 full page reproductions of original paintings, some of the finest images produced during the period, all photographed directly from the original art. Not a text book or a history book, this new volume is a stunning PICTURE book, filled to the brim with eye-popping visuals. If you are a fan of illustration art, this book was made for you!



As the publisher of Illustration magazine, over the years I have been able to assemble an extensive archive of scans of original paintings from every corner of illustration history. Having produced 46 issues of the magazine so far, I now recognize that some of the material in my files and on my hard drives may never find their way into the magazine at all. The artist's history may be too scattered, or the quantity of original works and tear sheets are too rare, to support the "deluxe treatment" we usually give to our subjects (20 or 30 page articles are the norm for the magazine.) Rather than allow these stunning artworks to languish in the files, I've decided to pull together the "best of the best" of these photographs into one fantastic book.

ARTISTS FEATURED:
Abbey, Abbott, F. Anderson, H.N. Anderson, H. Anderson, Armstrong, Arthurs, Avati, Aylward, Barclay, Baine, Baumgartner, Beall, Becher, Benda, Bergey, Betts, Biggs, Bleser, Bolles, Booth, Brangwyn, Bransom, Brehm, Brickdale, Briggs, Brown, Brown, Bull, Burns, Campbell, Carter, Castaigne, Chambers, Christy, Clark, Clinedinst, Coffin, Coll, Content, Cooper, Cornwell, Cox, Crandell, Dohanos, Dryden, Dulac, Dunn, Eastman, Enright, Everett, Falter, Fawcett, Fischer, Fisher, Flagg, Flato, Flanagan, Flint, Fogarty, Fuller, Georgi, Giguere, Gillespie, Godwin, Goodwin, Granville-Smith, Green, Gruger, Harding, Heitland, Herbst, Herndon, Henry, Hintermeister, Hinton, Hoff, Hoffman, Hoskins, Humphrey, Hunt, Hunter, Hurst, Iverd, Jackson, Keller, Kernan, Kihn, Koerner, Korder, Lagatta, Lee, Leyendecker, Leyendecker, Loomis, Louderback, Lovell, Lowell, Mantania, Matteson, McMein, Michelson, Moore, O’Neill, Otto, Parker, Parrish, Paus, Penfield, Phillips, Pogany, Price, Pyle, Pyle, Rackham, Raleigh, Reilly, Reusswig, Roberts, Rockwell, Rozen, Rozen, Schaeffer, Schoonover, Schuyler, Scott, Sewell, Sheppard, D.

This book will be limited to 1000 copies. It is 224 pages, 9”x12”, full-color on premium glossy stock, hardbound with dust jacket.

A Special Edition version of the book is available, limited to 100 copies.These are presented in a golden yellow slipcase with white stamped lettering, signed and numbered by editor Daniel Zimmer, with a bookplate affixed to the front endpapers.

By pledging through Kickstarter you will receive a copy of the book for only $40 delivered anywhere in the U.S. (Early Birds can get the book for only $35, if you act fast!) The retail cost of the regular unsigned edition (available after this Kickstarter campaign ends) will be $44.95 plus postage.


Unlike previous titles from The Illustrated Press, this book will not be offered through Amazon, so it will never be offered at a discounted price (unless you can find a "used" copy.) If you want this book new, you will have to buy it directly from The Illustrated Press. In other words, don't worry about funding the book for $40 and then turning around and seeing it listed on Amazon later for $26. That is not going to happen.

John Carter Rights Revert back to Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. from Disney

Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. announces that the movie, television and merchandise rights have reverted back to the company. Walt Disney Pictures held the rights and produced the movie JOHN CARTER in 2012. Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. will be seeking a new studio to continue this seminal Sci-Fi adventure.

“John Carter of Mars was the creative stimulus behind such movie classics as Superman, Star Wars and Avatar,” said James Sullos, President. “Edgar Rice Burroughs was the Master of Adventure and his literary works continue to enjoy a world-wide following. We will be seeking a new partner to help develop new adventures on film as chronicled in the eleven Mars novels Burroughs wrote. This adventure never stops. Along with a new TARZAN film in development by Warner Bros., we hope to have JOHN CARTER OF MARS become another major franchise to entertain world-wide audiences of all ages.”

About Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.
Founded in 1923 by Edgar Rice Burroughs himself, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. holds numerous trademarks and the rights to all literary works of the author still protected by copyright. The company has overseen every adaptation of his literary works in publishing, film, television, theatrical stage productions, licensing and merchandising. The company is still a very active enterprise and manages and licenses the vast archive of Mr. Burroughs' literary works, fictional characters and corresponding artworks that have grown for over a century. The company continues to be owned by the Burroughs family and remains headquartered in Tarzana, California, the town named after the Tarzana Ranch Mr. Burroughs purchased there in 1918 which led to the town's future development.

The Pulps
The Definitive Survey of a Re-Discovered American Genre
from the Lesser Collection at the New Britain Museum of American Art.
Sensational paintings that gripped the Depression-era public
with their themes of adventure, mystery, horror, sci-fi and damsels in distress.

October 03 through December 26!

Now, for the first time, the world’s largest collection of Pulp Cover Art is presented in a comprehensive touring exhibition of the original paintings and the magazine covers they became.
 
The exhibition features Tarzan, The Shadow, Secret Agent X, The Mysterious Wu-Fang, The Spider, Doc Savage, The Scorpion, The Whisperer, The Black Mask, and The Lone Ranger.
 
Often described as unrepentant, unapologetic, unbridled and under-appreciated… these are the vivid and daring period illustrations which became the source of the visual language of today’s popular cinema (imaginative movies like Avatar and sensual films like Y Tu Mamá También), comic books, and multi-million copy video games.
 
In riveting and attention-grabbing imagery, the selected works reflect the subconscious urges of an economically deprived and sexually repressed generation. They set the stage decades ago for the expression of today’s liberated consumer culture. Having influenced generations of artists and writers, Pulp Cover Art has long been overlooked due to its subject matter, genre clichés, and rarity of existing examples.
 
This exhibition is the first in-depth look at these incredible yet misunderstood works of art, some of which, due to their controversial content, have not been seen in public since the Roaring Twenties. This definitive survey of sweeping scope and range explores the subjects and influential work of the artists who shaped American popular culture and the creative landscape for generations to come.
 
Featuring stunning art by the masters of the genre – Tom Lovell, J. Allen St. John, Virgil Finlay, Hannes Bok, Margaret Brundage, Rafael de Soto, and Enoch Bolles – the exhibition is culled from the world’s largest collection of Pulp Art at the New Britain Museum of American Art and documents Depression-era fantasy as depicted on the covers of popular literature.
 
The content recognizes the rebirth of interest in this genre demonstrated by the surge in new publications, nostalgia events, collectors and reproductions of original pulps by a growing number of new publishers.
 
As described by scholars and specialists who have studied the genre, Pulp Art … “is more than simply an American art form. It is a state of mind. Politically incorrect, shocking, offensive and obviously fun…. It is unforgettable.”

Pulp Adventurecon


The next Pulp Adventurecon is scheduled for November 1st, 2014.

That's a Saturday.

 It remains a mildly magnificent show, wrapping up the Year In Pulps
after weekend-long conventions like the Windy City show and Pulpfest,
not to mention the little satellite shows across the good old U.S. of A.

Keep those want lists ready, 'cuz we expect to have the best show yet.

This year, we'll be joined by Robert Gould, son of pulp illustrator John Fleming Gould, who thrilled readers with his action-packed illustrations in The Spider and Dime Detective, among other titles from Popular Publications. Robert and his brothers manage the Bethlehem Art Gallery, which features the "Legacy of Artist John Fleming Gould."

The Gould brothers, Robert, William and Paul continue the tradition started in 1957 by John and Mary Gould with the Bethlehem Art Gallery located at 58 Orrs Mills Rd. in Salisbury Mills NY. The Gould brothers continue to meet and expand the vision of their parents in providing New York State residents and beyond with images that capture the history and beauty of the Hudson River Valley and give the kind of high quality, friendly service expected from a family owned and operated business with fifty years experience.



Bordentown, New Jersey ... and specifically the Ramada Inn ...
That oasis just off Exit 7 of the New Jersey Turnpike becomes a pulp collecting mecca every November.
Start planning to make your pilgrimage, especially if you are one of those hold-outs yet to attend.
We'll have the usual fine display room jam-packed with all sorts of stuff.
There's something for everyone, whether you collect H.P. Lovecraft,
Dashiell Hammett, The Shadow and Doc Savage, Argosy and Black Mask ...

Will Murray's Pulp Classics #61
Horror Stories Audiobook Volume 1
Read by Milton Bagby, Liner Notes by Will Murray

Now available!

It all began with Dime Mystery Magazine in 1933. Its brand of fiction came to be called Weird Menace. The mystery-and-menace formula proved so successful that publisher Popular Publications threw all pretense to the wind and issued a companion title unashamedly dubbed Terror Tales.
 
The slant, or formula, was simple: “Terror Tales wants the eerie atmosphere, in which the menace is centralized against one character or one group of characters, who, above all, are thoroughly terrified by their helpless situation.”



If you recognize the motif, it’s classic Hollywood horror fare, still in vogue today. When the blood-stained Terror Tales went into the black and stayed there, Popular Publications decided to add Horror Stories. This completed the triumvirate of terror edited by Rogers Terrill that dominated the Weird menace genre all through the 1930s.
 
Blurbed as featuring “mystery-horror” stories instead of “mystery-terror,” this new magazine was formulated differently than its companion titles. As one editor told writers, “Horror Stories needs the bizarre and the horrible; monsters, torture, butchery—anything that is really horrible. The mystery angle is not so important here.”
 
In other words, damn the plot. Pour on the menace!
 
From year to year, the mix was refined. “No monsters” was one taboo that came and went. Grand Guignol-style torture and sadism was turned up and then dialed back down as complaints poured into Popular’s editorial offices whenever an overeager writer went too far.
 
Horror Stories debuted in 1935. It immediately ran into trouble. After the third issue, the magazine vanished from the stands for two full months. It’s unclear why. But once it returned, Horror Stories kept going.
 
The same crew who filled the pages of the other terror titles got busy keeping this offering on schedule. They comprised a Who’s Who of Popular Publications pulp giants, yarn spinners such as Norvell W. Page, Frederick C. Davis, Wyatt Blassingame, Paul Ernst, Arthur Leo Zagat, Francis James, John H. Knox, and Arthur J Burks.
 
Once again, we’ve combed through innumerable issues to cull the best––or should we say worst?––offerings torn from the torturous pages of Horror Stories. These terrific tales have been handed to Milton Bagby, who delivers them with gruesome gusto. Listen with the lights on. You might end up sleeping the same way.... 6 hours - $11.99 Download / $23.98 Audio CDs

Robert Weinberg Presents
Vampires Overhead Audiobook by Alan Hyder

Read by Milton Bagby.
Liner Notes by Robert Weinberg


The June 1983 issue of the Twilight Zone magazine contained a short but fascinating article by noted horror writer, editor, fan, and collector, Karl Edward Wagner, on the 13 Best Horror Novels ever published. But because Karl had such winding, obscure tastes he was not able to fit all of his choices into one list. Instead he produced three—one effort consisting of supernatural horror, one for science fiction horror, and one for non-supernatural horror (mainstream fiction). His choices ranged from the familiar to the forgotten. Last month we brought you The Maker Of Shadows by Jack Mann from his supernatural listing.

As a follow-up to that novel and a special Halloween treat, this month we present another title from the Wagner list, this time from the Science Fiction category. One of the famous Creeps series published in England, it is a unique horror story that describes a vampire invasion from outer space. The monsters are definitely “Vampires Overhead!”
 
The author of this forgotten classic of horror fiction was Alan Hyder. As best as can be determined, Vampires Overhead was Hyder’s only work of horror fiction. His name was not listed in the massive Bleiler Index to Supernatural Fiction or Mike Ashley’s comprehensive guides to horror writers of the past century. Even more telling, Hyder did not have any fiction in the Creeps Short Story Library published by Philip Allan, of which Vampires Overhead was part of the series. We were left to conclude that Hyder was a one-idea wonder who sold his one spectacular story to the Creeps series and then left the publishing world forever.
 
The concept for Vampires Overhead is a unique one and definitely something out of science fiction, not fantasy or the supernatural. The Earth is overrun by a cloud of monsters from outer space. These monsters, numbering in the hundreds of millions, are some sort of cosmic vampire bat and they arrive on Earth hungry for blood. No explanation is given for the origin of the bats or how they survive in outer space. They just are. Vampires Overhead is a cosmic disaster novel, very much similar to Garrett Serviss’s The Second Deluge, published nearly thirty years earlier. But where Serviss has the Earth engulfed by a gigantic cosmic water cloud and most everyone drowned, Hyder imagines a swarm of near indestructible bats attacking humanity. It is an unforgettable novel of interstellar menace! Read by Milton Bagby. 8 hours - $15.99 Download / $31.98 Audio CDs

Vampires Overhead by Alan Hyder
From out of space, they came... riding on a comet of doom. In numbers too mammoth to conceive, they fed upon the blood of the living. Khaenealler’s Comet appeared in the heavens, bringing with it a strange glow, mysterious weather changes and vampires... filthy, loathsome creatures that could not be stopped. Three survivors of an annihilated world, Garry Garrington, his comrade-in-arms Bingham and the lovely young Janet, scour the English countryside seeking some place of safety from the horrors that have descended from above. This rarely-seen legend of horror, originally published in London in 1935, is now reissued for today’s readers in electronic format. $2.99.
 
Dusty Ayres and his Battle Birds #20: Black Lightning
This is the first issue in the Dusty Ayres series. It all started here! These are science-fiction stories of a near-future war that has ravaged America. The Black Invaders, led by an Asian warlord known as "Fire-Eyes", are bent upon world domination, have conquered all of Europe and are now on the American continent. Captain Dusty Ayres, ace pilot for the U.S. Air Defense flies in the Silver Flash, an advanced craft of his own design. With his two pals Curly Brooks and Biff Bolton, they battle some of the most diabolical mad scientists and their weirdest inventions. These exciting stories took over the Battle Birds magazine from June 1934 through the July/August issue of 1935, changing the magazine name to Dusty Ayres and his Battle Birds. And now Dusty Ayres and his Battle Birds is back, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format. $2.99.
 
Battle Birds #42 October 1941
Beginning in 1932, Battle Birds brought readers a thrilling main story, referred to as a “novel”, that featured a rotating cast of main characters like The Three Mosquitoes and Smoke Wade. After nineteen issues, just over a year and a half after its debut, the magazine began to feature the air adventures of Dusty Ayres, and the magazine became officially titled Dusty Ayres and his Battle Birds. This lasted until the summer of 1935 when the magazine folded after thirty-one issues. But Battle Birds wasn't finished; it would return. In early 1940, Battle Birds reappeared on the newsstands. But now the focus of the stories was on the conflict that would soon be known as World War II. This resurrected Battle Birds lasted for 26 issues until May 1944. And now Battle Birds is back, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format. $2.99.
 
Sports Novels Baseball Classics
Sports thrills, ripped from the burning pages of one of the all-time great sports magazines of the 1930s, Sports Novels! Magazines containing sports fiction were one of the staples of the pulp magazines, becoming popular in the early 1920s and by the mid-1930s there were over two dozen titles on the newsstands. In early 1937, Popular Publications decided to enter the lucrative field of the sports fiction magazines. The April-May 1937 issue of Sports Novels hit the newsstands in late March, featuring an eye-catching baseball cover. For the next fifteen years, each issue featured stories of football, boxing, baseball, hockey, track, basketball, tennis and hockey. Nearly every sport imaginable was represented in the long-running magazine. It continued publishing for a total of eighty-five issues until the April 1952 issue, when pulp magazines were in their waning days. Vintage Sports Novels are now being reissued for today’s readers in electronic format. $2.99.
 
Horror Stories: Arthur J. Burks

RED SONJA: VULTURE'S CIRCLE #1 - Coming in January!
(Writer) Nancy A. Collins, Luke Lieberman (Art) Fritz Casas
(Cover) Jay Anacleto, Walter Geovani

From shadow-haunted Stygia emerges an evil undreamt of by even the most depraved minds: the demi-god called Sutekh. Born of an unspeakable blood ritual, he is the half-human progeny of the ancient serpent-god Set, sent forth to enslave Mankind in the name of his father and return the world to a primordial swamp. The new-born Sutekh leads a fearful army and uses powerful sorcery and a menagerie of demonic war-beasts to break the will of his mortal enemies as he marches forth to conquer the kingdoms of the Hyborian Age, defeating foe after foe — until he crosses the path of an older, battle-scarred Red Sonja, who has exchanged the life of a mercenary for running a school for sword-maidens. Can Red Sonja and her prize students, Lyla and Xoana, defeat the evil Sutekh and his private army of ghouls and devils with the help of the renegade Stygian priest, Sefkh, or are the Hyborian Kingdoms doomed to fall before the pitiless “Son of Set”?

Science fiction fanzines to be digitized as part of major UI initiative

The University of Iowa Libraries has announced a major digitization initiative, in partnership with the UI Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development. 10,000 science fiction fanzines will be digitized from the James L. “Rusty” Hevelin Collection, representing the entire history of science fiction as a popular genre and providing the content for a database that documents the development of science fiction fandom.

Hevelin was a fan and a collector for most of his life. He bought pulp magazines from newsstands as a boy in the 1930s, and by the early 1940s began attending some of the first organized science fiction conventions. He remained an active collector, fanzine creator, book dealer, and fan until his death in 2011. Hevelin’s collection came to the UI Libraries in 2012, contributing significantly to the UI Libraries’ reputation as a major international center for science fiction and fandom studies.

Science fiction fanzines are amateur publications made by individuals or groups that discuss books, films, politics, and many other public and personal matters. They were initially written for a limited audience and distributed via personal connections and gatherings, beginning in the 1930s in the United States and Europe. Within the pages of science fiction fanzines lies previously inaccessible and unstudied primary documentation of the social history and popular culture of the 20th century.

Science fiction fanzine writers were intimately involved with many aspects of science fiction literature during the golden years of its development. The list of names is impressive: Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, Arthur C. Clark, Robert Bloch, Leigh Brackett, Frederik Pohl, Harlan Ellison, Joe Haldeman, Michael Moorcock, Roger Zelazny, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Robert Silverberg, Roger Ebert, George R.R. Martin, Forrest Ackerman, and many others were actively involved in fanzine culture.

“Some of the earliest works by these writers can be found in Rusty’s collection of fanzines, along with important writing from all of the major fans who created this new form of popular culture,” says Peter Balestrieri, curator of science fiction and popular culture collections.

The fanzine portion of the Hevelin Collection, numbering approximately 10,000 fanzines, will be digitized in its entirety.

“Nothing on this scale has been attempted with fanzines before, and we are thrilled to be able to finally address the concern we have been hearing for years from fans and scholars, to find a way to enable them to discover exactly what these pieces contain,” says Greg Prickman, head of special collections.

Once digitized, the fanzines will be incorporated into the UI Libraries’ DIY History interface, where a select number of interested fans (up to 30) will be provided with secure access to transcribe, annotate, and index the contents of the fanzines. This group will be modeled on an Amateur Press Association (APA) structure, a fanzine distribution system developed in the early days of the medium that required contributions of content from members in order to qualify for, and maintain, membership in the organization. The transcription will enable the UI Libraries to construct a full-text searchable fanzine resource, with links to authors, editors, and topics, while protecting privacy and copyright by limiting access to the full set of page images.

The Shadow is dead, a victim of a biological weapon... but his soul survives!  Believing that their father's ultimate fate rests in the hidden city of Shambala, the twins Chang and Hsu-Tei carry The Shadow's body deep within the Tibetan mountains, only to find themselves hunted by Chinese authorities and the outlaw denizens of a town called Malice. Meanwhile, without their master's guidance, the agents of The Shadow struggle to find their place in a violent, corrupt world. Intent on curing the disease of crime, the unhinged agent Twitch assumes a fearsome identity of his own as The Inoculator… but his brand of vigilante justice draws the attention of a deadly enemy.  Will the network of agents survive an assault by The Avenger, a master of disguise as brutal and unrelenting as The Shadow himself?

Steeger Properties 
Copyrights to nearly 150 pulp magazine titles obtained!  

Steeger Properties, LLC, has added to a growing collection of pulp fiction magazines by acquiring the copyrights to nearly 150 pulp magazine titles that were originally published by Popular Publications, Inc. Now claiming ownership to most of the pulp stories and characters published by both Popular Publications and The Frank A. Munsey Company, Steeger Properties, LLC, has accrued the copyrights to an estimated 6,000 issues and 30,000 stories.

“We’re proud to represent these thousands of stories and plan on introducing them to a whole new audience in as many mediums as possible,” said Matthew Moring, Manager of Steeger Properties, LLC, and Publisher of Altus Press.

Pulp fiction began in 1896 with Frank A. Munsey’s The Argosy Magazine. The 192-page magazine had untrimmed edges and the stories within the pages offered entertaining genre fiction ranging from adventure and mysteries to science fiction and westerns and everything in between. In six years, the magazine went from publishing a few thousand copies per month, to well over half a million copies. Argosy’s success was partially thanks to the variety of recurring characters it published, such as Tarzan and Zorro. Popular Publications, Inc.—the most successful pulp magazine publisher of its time—published such well-known authors as Raymond Chandler, Ray Bradbury and Erle Stanley Gardner within the pages of its own titles. In 1942, Popular Publications acquired The Frank A. Munsey Company.

Fast forward to 2014. While the popularity of pulp fiction has fluctuated over the years, the stories within the pages are classic fiction and are as influential to American pop culture as ever. They are fast paced, well-written short stories and novels featuring classic characters. There’s a huge audience that hasn’t had contact with these stories. By reintroducing them using today’s technology, these classic hard-boiled detective, mystery, western, and science fiction stories will be available for generations to come.

The Steeger Properties, LLC, catalog is available for licensing in all media.

It is the sight of this death grimace that transforms Miles Murdoch into an avenging angel.  Vowing to bring justice to those responsible, the skilled surgeon molds a pliable rubber mask from that repulsive, mutilated face; a mask he dons to become the Purple Scar, the scourge of crooks and villains everywhere.  He has become the physical embodiment of their worst fears brought to fiendish life.

“The first time I learned of this character, I was bowled over by the horror aspects,” confesses Airship 27 Production’s Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “There have been other grim pulp avenger, but none of them can hold a candle to the Purple Scar.  This guy is just outright scary as hell.  Which is just the slant we wanted our writers to take.”

Airship 27 now presents four brand new adventures of the creepiest pulp hero of them all, the Purple Scar!  Jim Beard, Jonathan Fisher, Gary Lovisi and Gene Moyers have all stirred the witches cauldron deep to brew up a quartet of frightening mayhem as only the Purple Scar can deliver.  Add the beautifully grotesque art style of Richard Serrao, Shannon Hall’s amazing cover coloring and Rob Davis’s spooky design motif and you have a new kind of pulp thriller unlike anything ever seen.

Beware the shadows and dark alleys, the black cats and dancing skeletons as Airship 27 whips up a real Trick or Treat pulp chiller.

Bedford-Jones in The King’s Passport, a now-rundown, ragged and drunken Cyrano stumbles upon another conspiracy in the Spring of 1642 which breathes new life into the former guardsman—as does the encounter with a red-headed woman. And so it’s time again for Hector Savinien de Cyrano de Bergerac to serve a lady, ride a road, pluck a lute and swing a sword….

The first new Virgil Finlay art book in twenty years will feature the collections of Robert Weinberg, Doug Ellis, Glynn Crain and Robert K. Wiener.

Beginning today, a Kickstarter Campaign has been launched to help defray costs in publishing THE COLLECTORS' BOOK OF VIRGIL FINLAY an art book featuring Virgil Finlay pieces from the collections of Robert Weinberg, Doug Ellis, Glynn Crain, and Robert K. Wiener.

Virgil Finlay was the most accomplished and outstanding line artist in American SF-Fantasy history. From 1936-1971 he illustrated an astounding amount of pulp fiction.  Beginning at WEIRD TALES, his interior art appeared in 62 WT issues and he painted 19 covers. His run only ended when the magazine did in 1954. He didn't stop there. For years afterward his illustrations appeared in almost every genre magazine: AMAZING, STRANGE STORIES, FAMOUS FANTASTIC MYSTERIES, FANTASTIC NOVELS, FANTASTIC UNIVERSE, IF, GALAXY and more. Through A. Merritt, he was hired as a staff artist for THE AMERICAN WEEKLY magazine and eventually worked for astrology magazines in the 1950s and 1960s.  In 1953, he won the Hugo Award for Best Interior Illustrator. He did the dust jacket art for Arkham House Publishers THE OUTSIDER AND OTHERS and ROADS. He also illustrated the hardcover of A. Merritt's THE SHIP OF ISHTAR, worked for comics, and so much more. About 2500 pieces have been catalogued. He passed away in 1971 after a harsh bout with cancer. In 1996, he was awarded the Retro Hugo as Best Professional Artist of 1945. In 2012, Virgil Finlay was also posthumously inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame.

Slated for release at the World Fantasy Convention's Virgil Finlay Centenary celebration on November 6-9, 2014, THE COLLECTORS' BOOK OF VIRGIL FINLAY stands to be a milestone in the history of sf-fantasy art publishing. It will be the first to have Finlay art scanned in high resolution directly from originals. It will contain 35 full color paintings by the artist, the largest collection of Finlay's color work ever assembled in print. It will also contain another 13 pages of additional color work, ranging from 2-color art pieces done for the Doubleday Science Fiction Book Clubs' solicitations to full-color cover roughs.

The Kickstarter campaign is schedule to end on Virgil Finlay's actual Centenary Birthday: July 23, 2014.

The Cimmerian Press: A LOOK BEHIND THE DERLETH MYTHOS: ORIGINS OF THE CTHULHU MYTHOS - Now available!

An instant classic when first released, John D. Haefele’s critically acclaimed account of the birth of the Cthulhu Mythos is now back in a completely revised trade paperback edition overflowing with fascinating new insights and discoveries.

In 1939, the prolific Wisconsin writer August Derleth launched Arkham House, one of the most influential small presses in the history of publishing. Its mission: to preserve in the permanence of hardcovers the writings of Derleth's late friend, the legendary horror fantasist Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890–1937). During three decades of editing and storytelling, Derleth became the major player in the explosive growth of the “Cthulhu Mythos” into a worldwide cultural phenomenon.

Does the Cthulhu Mythos owe its existence to the Lovecraft Mythos -- or is the parallel fictional world of the Derleth Mythos even more influential? Comparatively shallow works such as S. T. Joshi's The Rise and Fall of the Cthulhu Mythos are filled with misconceptions and tell only a small part of this hotly controversial story. Now join Haefele as he digs far deeper, unearthing important layers of the saga neglected by past scholars. A Look Behind the Derleth Mythos answers numerous questions with fresh evidence and thunderous revelations, covering in unprecedented detail everything from the notorious Black Magic Quote to Derleth’s infamous “posthumous collaborations” with Lovecraft.

One of the most striking books of criticism ever written on the works of H. P. Lovecraft, A Look Behind the Derleth Mythos is a riveting chronicle no fan of Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth and Nyarlathotep should miss!
