Once again join us on a journey back
to an “Age of Aces” as “Battling” Mord Grogan burns through
the tortured skies of pre-WWII China.
Grogan, an American pilot, commands the all-Chinese
“Dragon Squadron” in their battle against the invading
Japanese along with his three valiant flight commanders:
Monty St. John, the lanky Limey; slender Hank Goyen, the
dapper Frog; and last but not least, the imperturbable
Ah Im, Grogan’s boyhood chum of old Nanking days, now
premier olive-toned ace of the Dragon clan. Never before has
the struggle been so fierce or the danger of Oriental
treachery so great!

Aces, May 1932
WWI pilot Robert M. Burtt wrote
the fourteen Battling Grogan stories in the
early 1930’s for Flying Aces Magazine before becoming
well known as the co-creator and writer of aviation-themed
radio serials like The Air Adventures of
Jimmy Allen, Captain Midnight, Hop Harrigan and

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

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

Sax Rohmer (1883-1959) was a celebrated and prolific
British writer and the creator of Fu Manchu. He was the author
of such famous novels as The Green Eyes of Bast and The Bat

also a prodigious author of short stories of weirdness and terror.
Over the course of his career he wrote dozens of stories collected
in several volumes that have now become scarce collector’s items.
This volume presents fifteen stories by Rohmer, taken
from such rare collections as Tales of Secret Egypt and
The Haunting of Low Fennel. They feature Rohmer’s patented
mix of exotic settings, supernaturalism, and adventure. Among
them are such famous stories as “Tchériapin,” a tale
of a mad chemist; “The Curse of a Thousand Kisses,” about a centuries-old
curse; “Lord of the Jackals,” a haunting account of love and death
in Egypt; and “The Haunting of Low Fennel,” a classic haunted
house story. Also included is the full-length novel Brood of
the Witch-Queen, one of the finest novels of Egyptian horror ever

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

I love readers. I particularly love my readers,

Valentine’s holiday, a day dedicated to love, I am putting the digital
version of my novel Doc Wilde and The Frogs of Doom on sale through Valentine’s

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

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

Nigeria 2004 ... Nicholas 'New Breed'
Steed, a tough teen from the mean streets of Chicago, is sent to his
mother’s homeland – a tiny village in Nigeria – to avoid trouble with
the law. Unknown to Nick, the tiny village is actually a compound where
some of the best fighters in the world are trained. Nick is teased, bullied
and subjected to torturous training in a culture so very different from
the world where he grew up.
Atlanta 2014 ... After a decade of training in Nigeria, a tragedy
brings Nick back to America. Believing the disaffected youth in his
home town sorely need the same self-discipline and strength of character
training in the African martial arts gave him, Nick opens an Academy.
While the kids are disinterested in the fighting style of the cultural
heritage Nick offers, they are enamored with mixed martial arts. Nick
decides to enter the world of mixed martial arts to make the world aware
of the effectiveness and efficiency of the martial arts of Africa.
Pursing a professional career in MMA, Nick moves to Atlanta,
Georgia, where he runs into his old nemesis – Rico Stokes, the organized
crime boss who once employed Nick’s father, wants Nick to replace his father
in the Stokes’ protection racket. Will New Breed Steed claim the Light Heavyweight
title … Or will the streets of Atlanta claim him?

|Grimm: THE CHOPPING BLOCK
- Coming February 18!
by John Passarella
A cache of bones is found in a shallow grave in
local woods... Meanwhile missing persons cases in Portland seem
to be on the increase. As more bones are discovered, Portland homicide
Detective Nick Burkhardt and his partner Hank Griffin investigate
- but there seems to be no connection between the victims... A brand-new

Publisher: Titan Books
Jumpin’ Jungle Cat of Jupiter! It’s
another mega-collection of four complete novels
of the “Man of Tomorrow,” the “Wizard of Science,” the
protector of the Solar System and a menace to evil-doers
throughout the universe: CAPTAIN FUTURE!
Now that Captain Future (aka Dr. Curtis Newton)
and the Futuremen (Grag the robot; Otho
the Android; and Simon Wright, the Living Brain) have
traveled through time in the final story of Volume Two
(See “The Lost World of Time”), can an adventure beyond
the Solar System be far behind? Most assuredly not!
The Futuremen board their trusty space-vessel, The Comet,
and blast-off for adventure in QUEST BEYOND THE STARS!
But that’s not all the dangers our intrepid defenders
will face in VOLUME THREE. Up next is OUTLAWS ON THE MOON!
When the peoples of the Solar System believe the Futuremen
to be dead, what better time for the emissaries of villainy
to attempt to break in to Captain Future’s Secret Moon Base.
Following that nail-biting saga, is arguably the finest of the
CAPTAIN FUTURE novels: THE COMET KINGS. Here, author Hamilton
pulls out all the stops as the Futuremen combat forces from
within Halley’s Comet! In the final story of this volume,
PLANETS IN PERIL, the Futuremen face forces from another dimension
that threaten to enslave our entire universe!
As with the previous two volumes of THE COLLECTED
CAPTAIN FUTURE, “Under Observation,” the
CAPTAIN FUTURE letters column is reprinted, and the
original pulp covers and interior illustrations are
reproduced in a generous appendix.

resolve of the city’s masked protectors. But when forces with
powers from beyond this world threaten to bring their war to
the streets of Depression-era Toronto, can even the Red Panda prevent
disaster? Bringing to life characters from The Red Panda Adventures,
Decoder Ring Theatre’s award-winning radio drama series, Mask
of the Red Panda is pulse-pounding pulp perfection for all those
who love the classic two-fisted adventures of the golden age of

The Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention
is a three-day festival held inside the Hunt Valley Wyndham.
Here, you can watch dozens of screenings of vintage movies,
world premiere documentaries, Hollywood celebrities
posing for photos and signing autographs for fans, slide show
seminars from authors and historians, over 200 vendor tables
with retro merchandise, antiques and collectibles and... well,
it is a lot of fun.Whether you have been to other conventions in
the past or never attended a convention before, we recommend you
give it a try. You'll discover what people keep returning
year after year. Attendees come from California, Canada, Seattle,
England, Belgium, Florida, Maine... and statistically the size
of the attendance has grown every year. MANC didn’t attract such
a faithful following by accident. Nearing our 10th anniversary,
MANC has offered fans a chance to meet Hollywood actors, visit
a drive-in movie theater, watch old fifties films like Creature
from the Black Lagoon in 3-D, have their picture next to The Blob
silicone, watch Abbott and Costello impersonators perform on stage,
and have a great time. Many of the seminars will be broadcast live
from Radio Once More and you can tune into the station for free at

Heroes - Now online!
Johnson has started a new Blog for authors
who have created new pulp heroes.
This Site is for essays
on The New Pulp Heroes. It’s about
time we catalog new characters appearing in
books and anthologies. Since Tom does not have time
to read everything being published, he is offering
space for legitimate creators of new pulp characters
to send him their data, and he will post their essays.
The only changes Tom will make to essays will be editing
and format. If you wish, include a jpeg of a book
cover or b&w illustration if you have permission from
the artist. By sending Tom your essays, you are giving
me permission to promote and showcase this data. Eventually,
it would be nice to see all the data published in
book format. Essays should be up to 500 words, and include
information on MC and back up characters, creator, title of
books, and where the stories can be found.

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

D.C.’s Rare Book and Special Collections Division—along
with the personal libraries of Presidents, medieval

known perfect copies of the Gutenberg Bible in existence.
With its latest addition of 4 issues of The Black

The Pulp Magazines
Project is an open-access digital archive dedicated to
the study and preservation of one of the twentieth
century's most influential literary & artistic forms: the
all-fiction pulpwood magazine. The Project also provides information
on the history of this important but long neglected medium,
along with biographies of pulp authors, artists, and their
At the heart of the Project's
mission is the archive itself. In
summer 2011, it began with a modest library
of five representative first-generation pulp
titles from the early twentieth century. Over time,
the archive will expand, new magazines will be
digitized, and contextual materials added.
Eventually, the archive will feature a broad
range of pre-1923 titles, post-1923 titles
where copyright has lapsed, and full volume
runs of select titles from 1896 to 1946.
The Project is dedicated to fostering
ties between communities of collectors,
fans, and academics devoted to pulp
magazines, and will offer opportunities for
research and collaboration to both scholars
and enthusiasts alike. We will provide information
on upcoming conferences and conventions,
and promote new working relationships between
academics and the hundreds of pulp fans
and collectors beyond the college and university.

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

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

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