They were STRANGE ENEMIES! Once they were just two young lovers, pledging their devotion in a Mecklenberg garden. Now they are reluctant rivals enmeshed in the biggest conflict the world has ever seen. While the Great War had forged him into the so-called Brain-Devil, America’s top agent, she had become the famous Fraulein Doktor, Germany’s most alluring and elusive spy. When love and loyalty collide in eight epic tales of WWI aviation and intrigue, the bullets—and the sparks—are going  to fly.

NEW PULP PUBLISHERS TEAM UP

Terry Quinn was an enforcer for the Irish Mob in New York during the 1930s.  One of the toughest and the best.  But before he donned a trench-coat and fedora, before his life took the deadly detour leading him deep into the underworld, Quinn was an up and coming heavy weight boxer with a good chance at the title. 

Created by author Terrence McCauley, Quinn’s story is about to unfold from two of today’s most popular pulp publishers, Airship 27 Productions and Fight Card.


Initially McCauley submitted his full length crime novel, “Prohibition,” to Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier.  “It’s a tough, gritty fast paced gangster book,” related Fortier, “that reminded me of those classic black and white Warner Brothers movies of the 30s and 40s.  After reading the first few chapters, it was a done deal that we were going to publish this.”

“Prohibition,” by Terrence McCauley will be released by Airship 27 Productions in December.  The book will feature a cover and nine interior illustrations by artist Rob Moran, a creator noted for his noir inspired art with book design by Art Director Rob Davis.

But McCauley was far from done with Quinn.  As a writer, he was intrigued by Quinn’s backstory- how he became the man the underworld fears.  For this early story, set in Quinn’s days in the boxing ring,  McCauley believed he knew the perfect target for such a story - the Fight Card series created by Paul Bishop and Mel Odom.  Each month since January 2012, the Fight Card series has published a new novelette from some of the finest action scribes in the field of New Pulp - all writing under shared pseudonym of Jack Tunney.  Each tale in the Fight Card series features a hard hitting melodrama centered in the world of boxing inspired by the fight pulps of the ‘30s and 40s  - such as Fight Stories Magazine and Robert E.Howard’s two-fisted boxing tales featuring Sailor Steve Costigan.

Upon receiving McCauley’s inquiry, Bishop quickly approved it.  “I have been constantly amazed at the varied stories the Fight Card series has produced,” Bishop said, “And Terrence’s story featuring the origins of his Quinn character was another completely unique take on the mythology of boxing noir.”

McCauley’s tale of Quinn’s boxing days, “Fight Card: Against The Ropes,” will be published in January or Feburary of 2013.

As for McCauley, he couldn’t be happier.  “Even before Airship 27 agreed to publish Prohibition, I'd always envisioned my Terry Quinn character to be part of a larger body of work than just one book. That's why I was honored when Fight Card gave me the opportunity to tell of Quinn's beginnings with Fight Card:Against The Ropes. I'm honored that Quinn has found homes with both Airship 27 and Fight Card.  He’s also been featured in earlier short stories that have appeared in a variety anthologies.”

Airship 27 Productions and Fight Card are set to deliver a solid one-two punch knock-out that will have New Pulp fans cheering!

CAPTAIN HAZZARD AUDIO BOOK

Airship 27 Productions & Dynamic Ram Audio are thrilled to announced the release of the first ever Captain Hazzard adventure, “Python Men of the Lost City,” as an audio book recorded by actor Joe Stofko.

In 2006 six, writer Ron Fortier realized a personal dream when he re-wrote the original pulp classic known amongst fans because it only produced one issue.  Although released under the house name of Chester Hawks, it is believed that pulp veteran Paul Chadwick was the true author of this Doc Savage want-to-be.

“Finding a facsimile reprint copy years go,” explains Fortier, “I was instantly enamored with the characters, especially Hazzard.  I could also see why the book failed.  Chadwick, better known for his Secret Agent X exploits, wasn’t at all comfortable with high adventure and the book is filled with plot holes

galore.”  Fortier sat down, re-wrote the entire book and republished it via Ron Hanna’s Wild Cat Books.  It became an instant hit amongst the pulp community.  “I would challenge pulp fans to read the original and then my re-write,” Fortier chuckles.  “The response I received from those who did this was overwhelmingly positive.  Enough so that I started writing new Captain Hazzard novels.”

Later, Fortier and his partner, Art Director Rob Davis, parted ways with Wild Cat Books to start their own publishing imprint, Airship 27 Productions and quickly produced new editions of the book.  Earlier this year, Airship 27 joined forces with Dynamic Ram Audio headed by Sound Engineer Chris Barnes.  One of the titles chosen to bring to audio life was of course, “Catpain Hazzard – Python Men of the Lost City.”  The audio files run approximately four and a half hours.  There are plans to do CD versions in the coming months and make them available at various cons.


Fortier had high praise for Joe Stofko’s reading.  “Joe’s a professional actor and does a lot of theater.  His reading is full of passion and drama with a hint of the fun. That’s what I loved the most while listening to the tapes.  Joe brings the story to life with his reading and adds a completely different dimension to the experience.  No one could have done a better job with this.”

BOLD NEW SPACE OPERA

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the release of its 15th title of the year, a rousing new space opera; THREE AGAINST THE STARS by Chicago based writer Joe Bonadonna.  Best known for his sword and sorcery fantasies, Bonadonna now steps into a whole new arena to deliver a truly fast paced futurist pulp adventure.

On the distant alien planet of Rhajnara a conspiracy created by the facist Khandra Regime is set into motion to overthrow the rightful Rhajni Republic and instigate a policy of ethnic-cleansing.  The conspirators are cunning and it seems nothing in the universe can derail their mad apocalyptic scheme.


Nothing that is but three rambunctious Space Marines from the Third Regiment Company E of the United States Space Marines assigned to Rhajnara with the Terran Expeditionary Force.  Sergeants Fernado Cortez, Seamus O’Hara and Claudia Akira are the most unlikely trio ever to don jarhead camouflage and become military heroes.  To their superiors they are wild, reckless and incessant troublemakers always in the thick of things.  Yet their courage, loyalty and devotion to duty prove them to be the toughest Devil Dogs in the Corp.

Now, with the aid of a Medical Corpsman named Makki Doon, a young Felisian native proto-feline humanoid, these three futuristic musketeers are about to become the one factor capable of exposing the


traitorous Khandra coup.  But to do so they will have to put their lives on the line one more time and risk all to save the day facing off against incredible odds.  To save an empire they will truly become…THREE AGAINST THE STARS.

“This is old school space opera,” cheered Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “From Buck Rogers to the Space Patrol, the classic elements in this book make for a fun read from start to finish.”  The book features interior illustrations by the popular Pedro Cruz with a dynamic cover by Laura Givens and is designed by Art Director, Rob Davis.  “In the end, Joe Bonadonna delivers an action packed space opera fans of Edmond Hamilton and E.E. “Doc” Smith will not soon forget.”

Conan Meets the Academy: Multidisciplinary Essays on the Enduring Barbarian
Edited by Jonas Prida
Now available!

About the Book
In 1932, Robert E. Howard penned a series of fantasy stories featuring Conan, a hulking Cimmerian warrior who roamed the mythical Hyborian Age landscape engaging in heroic adventures. More than the quirky manifestation of Depression-era magazines, Conan the Barbarian has endured as a cultural mainstay for over 70 years. This multidisciplinary collection offers the first scholarly investigation of Conan, from Howard’s early stories, through mid-century novels and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s iconic films, to the 2011 cinematic remake of Conan the Barbarian. Drawing on disciplines such as stylometry, archeology, cultural studies, folklore studies, and literary history, the essays examine statistical analyses of Conan texts, the literary genesis of Conan, later-day parodies, Conan video games, and much more. By displaying the wide range of academic interest in Conan, this volume reveals the hidden scholarly depth of this seemingly unsophisticated fictional character.

NOBODY knew what he was doing there in the Southwest's toughest mining town. He scarcely knew himself, perhaps. He had high education; came near to being an intellectual so far as book learning went. His main difficulty lay in the fact that he passed up no opportunity to show off his brilliance.

Detective Bert Nagle witnessed the murder of Thomas Raynor and his word had sent a man to burn for it. Yet two months later, through he knew men don't die twice, his own eyes saw Thomas Raynor murdered again.

His tremendous output of poetry, totaling nearly 1000 original poems written over a span of more than fifty years, is of the highest craftsmanship and runs the gamut of subject matter from breathtaking “cosmic” verse about the stars and galaxies to plangent love poetry to pungent satire to delicate imitations of Japanese haiku.

THE OSILIANS
STRANGE PATTERNS APPEARING ON HIS OSCILLOGRAPH REVEAL TO JAY BARD A BRAND NEW WORLD IN "THE OSCILIANS"!

Jay Bard is interested in electronics and experiments with a home-made oscillograph. He keeps it tuned-in to his radio so that the "shadows" of the voices of celebrities, speaking or singing over the air, appear on the oscillograph as wavering green graphs, which Bard has learned to read.

One day the "shadows" do not match the voices on the radio. The oscillating green lines of the graph develop a bulge, as if something were moving through them. Using magnets, Bard discovers that he can pull the green bulge entirely off the screen-and the "shadow" lines fly off his screen.

He soon discovers that he is somehow in contact with the intelligence responsible for the strange patterns on the oscillograph. He realizes that they are not the result of any human voices or sounds, but come from somewhere else!

Will Murray's Pulp Classics #17
Unabridged Audiobook
The Spider - The Corpse Cargo
Now available!

During his ferocious first year fighting crime, The Spider faced the most amazing array of supercriminals ever spawned. The Black Death. The Red Mask. The Tarantula. The Fly. Few were as memorable as the 20th Century corsair called Captain Kidd. She—yes, she!—embarked on a campaign of cruelty unmatched in pulp history.
 
It began with the torture-killing of a innocent young boy—a loyal member of the Spider Club. The weapon employed was a knife with eerie electrical properties. Discovering the hapless body, Richard Wentworth vowed to avenge this insult to The Spider's power.

But Captain Kidd struck first! When a train roars into Grand Central Station, out of control and crashing to a brutal halt, authorities discover that everyone aboard, from the engineer and crew to the passengers, are cold corpses—electrified by a weird new weapon called the Green Fire!

Out of this rolling charnel house come the first clues to the Pirates—a roving band of modern-day buccaneers out to pillage greater New York. At their head, the deadly woman who has taken the feared name of Captain Kidd.
 
Once again, RadioArchives.com has selected one of the most electrifying Spider novels ever written for an equally-electrifying audiobook. Nick Santa Maria again takes on the dual role of Richard Wentworth, aka The Spider, Master of Men, for this powerful new entry in the Will Murray Pulp Classics series. Robin Riker enchants as Nita van Sloan and gives a powerful performance as the wiley Captain Kidd. Producer Roger Rittner brings his superb directorial expertise to the proceedings, which are enhanced by sound effects and a full musical score. So far, our audience tells us that each Spider audiobook has outdone the one before. The Corpse Cargo is no exception.
 
This Total Pulp Experience audiobook contains all three stories from the tenth issue issue of The Spider Magazine, July 1934. $27.98 Audio CDs / $13.99 Download.

Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.

The Spider #42: Satan's Workshop
He auctioned souls, the masked Man Who Dealt in Death. But he worked his devilish magic in a secret den that defied search warrants and nightsticks, while he stripped great men of their power and enslaved beautiful women. And only Richard Wentworth saw a fighting chance to link the Fifth Avenue holdup, the haunting sorcery of the leper, and the strange vanishing of the footlight queen in the weirdest, most horrible crime campaign the Spider has ever battled! Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.

The Spider #43: Scourge of the Yellow Fangs
The curse first fell upon the squalid settlements where Oriental folk lived their transplanted lives in growing terror of the new menace against which the white man's law could not protect them. But it burgeoned in murder and massacre until New York and her sister cities saw grim chaos on the horizon, rolling up with the swift deadliness of a man-made thunder-head. Only the Spider sensed the hidden purpose that launched the Scourge of the Yellow Fangs. And the Spider — Richard Wentworth to his friends — was a man already marked for ghastly death. Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.

Operator 5 #21:  Raiders of the Red Death
No one believed at first that America was in danger, that a little, third-class power could conquer the great United States. But the man who called himself Montezuma the Third — who had reestablished the barbaric Aztec Empire — was armed with a new, invincible weapon which caused his enemies literally to explode from within! The American people, helpless, began to dread the fetters of shameful slavery... Jimmy Christopher — that Operator 5 of the Intelligence who has so often saved our nation from disaster — gambled his bravery and loyalty against a beautiful woman's heartless wiles — with the lives of his dear ones, and America, at stake! Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine. As a special bonus, Will Murray has written an introduction especially for this series of eBooks.

Captain Future #25: Moon of the Unforgotten
Captain Future… the Ace of Space! Born and raised on the moon, Curt Newton survived the murder of his scientist parents to become the protector of the galaxy known as Captain Future. With his Futuremen, Grag the giant robot, Otho, the shape-shifting android and Simon Wright, the Living Brain, he patrols the solar system in the fastest space ship ever constructed, the Comet, pursuing human monsters and alien threats to Earth and her neighbor planets. This is one of the legendary "final seven" Captain Future tales. After a run of twenty pulp issues, the quarterly magazine closed. But that was not the end of Captain Future. He returned in a series of short stories published in Startling Stories magazine, beginning with the January 1950 issue. Edmond Hamilton, creator of Captain Future and author of the majority of the full-length novels, returned to pen seven more Captain Future stories. His style had matured, as had his original audience, and these final seven Captain Future stories are considered to be some of his best. Captain Future left the pages of Startling Stories with the May 1951 issue, but editors left open the possibility that Captain Future might return some day. True fans are still waiting. Until then, Captain Future returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today's readers in electronic format.

The Mysterious Wu Fang #3: The Case of the Yellow Mask
Wu Fang is a Chinese criminal mastermind and scientific genius. With his hybrid monkey-men, he plans to conquer America. He is member of various secret societies and has spies everywhere. Opposing him is Val Kildare of the F.B.I.  His aides, reporter Jerry Hazard, archaeologist Rod Carson and newsboy Cappy, help him in his battles against the sinister man of evil known as Wu Fang

Inspired by the Asian menace of Fu Manchu, Harry Steeger, publisher of Popular Publications, decided to publish a villain-centered pulp magazine series. And so, The Mysterious Wu Fang was born.  The series was written by Robert J. Hogan, who also wrote for G-8 and his Battle Aces and The Secret Six.  But after seven stories, the series was ended.  An eighth story "The Case of the Living Poison" was planned, but never was printed.


Terror Tales: Paul Ernst, Book 2
In 1934 a new type of magazine was born. Known by various names — the shudder pulps, mystery-terror magazines, horror-terror magazines — weird menace is the sub-genre term that has survived today. Terror Tales magazine was one of the most popular. It came from Popular Publications, whose publisher Harry Steeger was inspired by the Grand Guignol theater of Paris. This breed of pulp story survived less than ten years, but in that time, they became infamous, even to this day. This ebook contains a collection of stories from the pages of Terror Tales magazine, all written by Paul Ernst, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
All eBooks produced by Radio Archives are available in ePub, Mobi, and PDF formats for the ultimate in compatibility. When you upgrade to a new eReader, you can transfer your eBook to your new device without the need to purchase anything new.

But the newly-elected officials are in the control of powerful criminals, who quickly corrupt the law to their own advantage.

TARZAN OF THE APES by Edgar Rice Burroughs
Large Print Edition!


This is a textural reprint of the A. L. Burt book printing which used the original A. C. McClurg printing plates. Tarzan is the orphaned son of a British nobleman, adopted while a baby by a tribe of anthropoid apes and cared for by a fierce animal foster-mother. He learns all the secrets of the wilds, he acquires the strength and agility of his associates, and in time his human intelligence aids him in becoming the leader of the tribe. His fearless encounters with the jungle terrors, his slowly dawning realization that he is a man, are experiences such as have been nowhere else described with so absorbing an interest. When he meets with others of his kind and is able to note the strange differences, when he sees the woman who should be his mate but is separated from him by unsurmountable obstacles, even greater trials are before him. It is more than a strong, unique story--it is one that will be remembered and read again and again through the coming years. Long available only with censored text, Pulpville Press is proud to present the original First Edition book version of this novel in the Tarzan Series.

Unabridged Audiobook

The Spider - The Corpse Cargo
Now available!

During his ferocious first year fighting crime, The Spider faced the most amazing array of supercriminals ever spawned. The Black Death. The Red Mask. The Tarantula. The Fly. Few were as memorable as the 20th Century corsair called Captain Kidd. She—yes, she!—embarked on a campaign of cruelty unmatched in pulp history.
 
It began with the torture-killing of a innocent young boy—a loyal member of the Spider Club. The weapon employed was a knife with eerie electrical properties. Discovering the hapless body, Richard Wentworth vowed to avenge this insult to The Spider's power.

But Captain Kidd struck first! When a train roars into Grand Central Station, out of control and crashing to a brutal halt, authorities discover that everyone aboard, from the engineer and crew to the passengers, are cold corpses—electrified by a weird new weapon called the Green Fire!

Out of this rolling charnel house come the first clues to the Pirates—a roving band of modern-day buccaneers out to pillage greater New York. At their head, the deadly woman who has taken the feared name of Captain Kidd.
 
Once again, RadioArchives.com has selected one of the most electrifying Spider novels ever written for an equally-electrifying audiobook. Nick Santa Maria again takes on the dual role of Richard Wentworth, aka The Spider, Master of Men, for this powerful new entry in the Will Murray Pulp Classics series. Robin Riker enchants as Nita van Sloan and gives a powerful performance as the wiley Captain Kidd. Producer Roger Rittner brings his superb directorial expertise to the proceedings, which are enhanced by sound effects and a full musical score. So far, our audience tells us that each Spider audiobook has outdone the one before. The Corpse Cargo is no exception.
 
This Total Pulp Experience audiobook contains all three stories from the tenth issue issue of The Spider Magazine, July 1934. $27.98 Audio CDs / $13.99 Download.

Captain Future #24: Pardon my Iron Nerves

Captain Future… the Ace of Space! Born and raised on the moon, Curt Newton survived the murder of his scientist parents to become the protector of the galaxy known as Captain Future. With his Futuremen, Grag the giant robot, Otho, the shape-shifting android and Simon Wright, the Living Brain, he patrols the solar system in the fastest space ship ever constructed, the Comet, pursuing human monsters and alien threats to Earth and her neighbor planets. This is one of the legendary "final seven" Captain Future tales. After a run of twenty pulp issues, the quarterly magazine closed. But that was not the end of Captain Future. He returned in a series of short stories published in Startling Stories magazine, beginning with the January 1950 issue. Edmond Hamilton, creator of Captain Future and author of the majority of the full-length novels, returned to pen seven more Captain Future stories. His style had matured, as had his original audience, and these final seven Captain Future stories are considered to be some of his best. Captain Future left the pages of Startling Stories with the May 1951 issue, but editors left open the possibility that Captain Future might return some day. True fans are still waiting. Until then, Captain Future returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today's readers in electronic format.

THE SHADOW: YEAR ONE #1     
Coming in February!
Written by Matt Wagner, art by Wilfredo Torres, covers by Matt Wagner, Alex Ross, Chris Samnee, Howard Chaykin.

The Shadow is a character that has lasted through decades on the pages of pulp magazines, over the radio airwaves, thru the silver screen, and in the panels of comic books. Shrouded in mystery, his origins have been explored and hinted at over the years...but never fully revealed. Much is known of Kent Allard/Lamont Cranston's years spent in the Orient and Central America--wherein he gains his powers and purpose...but not how he first developed his persona as the Master of Darkness.

Eisner Award-winning author, Matt Wagner is joined by artist Wilfredo Torres in an exhilarating 8-issue limited series that will explore the dynamic events that first drew Cranston back to the States, how he first met his companion and lover, Margo Lane, how he began to assemble his vast network of agents and how he first 
adopted the famous black hat and cloak as his alter-ego's disguise--all secrets that, up until now... only The Shadow knew!

BROTHER BONES AUDIO #3
BONES VS ALIEN GODS

Airship 27 Productions
, in conjunction with Dynamic Ram Audio, is thrilled to announce the release of their third audio recording based on the stories of the new pulp sensation, Brother Bones – The Undead Avenger by Ron Fortier.  Voice actor Mark Kalita returns to read this new entry called, “The Scales of Terror.”

"I was very excited to be chosen to bring Ron's Brother Bones stories to the audio medium,” Kalita says.  “These tales are so rich in the classic pulp fiction tradition with their noir atmosphere, gritty language and larger-than-life hero that you can't help but let yourself get pulled into the shadows of their delightfully dark recesses. Hopefully my readings will further enhance the imagery that Ron has so skillfully crafted to make them appeal both to fans of old time radio and modern audio books."

This short audio files are part of an on-going project to sell all seven of the Brother Bones tales from the Airship 27 Productions’ prose collection for the reasonable price of $2.  Once all seven have been recorded and made available, the entire audio book will be offered for the bargain price of $10.  “Response thus far has been truly wonderful,” reports Fortier, who is also Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor.  “We couldn’t be any happier with Dynamic Ram Audio’s quality on these recordings and Mark brings so much to the table.  His readings enhance the creepiness of each story.”

There is some definitive extra passion to this reading as Kalita went on to explain.  "Scales of Terror was particularly special for me to read because I'm a big fan of H.P. Lovecraft and the idea of doing a story about a secret cult and otherworldly beasties had instant appeal. Throw in Brother Bones and his particular brand of undead justice and it just doesn't get any better. I think listeners will also find Chris Barnes' special audio treatment really helps bring this tale an added dimension of cool creepiness."

PLANET FOR PLUNDER

The PLANET FOR PLUNDER, first published in Satellite Science Fiction for February 1957, comprises two short novels, one written by Hal Clement, the other by Sam Merwin Jr. Clement's portion is written from the alien's point-of-view. Merwin's is from man's point-of-view. Combined, they form a unique narrative. It can be read three ways: Clement's alien novel skipping from first, to third and so on--Merwin's human story, taking on the even chapters. Or, just read the story from front to end!

Out of the star gulfs he came, troubled, searching, with a warning for Earth no one dared ignore. Never would Earth see his like again-or know the reason why!

The alien's mission was grim, purposeful, and scientific. It was only natural that he should mistake men for machines and machines for men. Earth's terrible predicament was not of his making, but it came close to destroying Man.

Also included are two shorts, each written by one of the authors:
"Ground" by Hal Clement was originally published in
Science Fiction Adventures Magazine for December 1953.

"Exiled From Earth" by Sam Merwin Jr. was originally published in
Thrilling Wonder Stories for December 1940.

Operator 5 #19: Attack of the Blizzard Men
It was a sultry day in August when the ghastly cold first came. Snow began to fall; ice formed, and in a brief hour, New York City was paralyzed. A new and deadly weapon had been directed at America by a ruthless, international syndicate, for, under cover of the sub-zero weather, barbarous, armored warriors swarmed into the United States, turning our country into a helpless colony to be exploited savagely. In quick succession, other cities — Washington, Los Angeles, Chicago, New Orleans — fell before the assault of the astute enemy and the marrow-chilling cold. Could Operator 5 of the disabled Secret Service — Jimmy Christopher to his friends — save our land from shameful slavery? With Tim Donovan, his father and his beloved Diane all in the bloody clutches of the invader, Jimmy Christopher gambled for the highest stakes in the world — America — with his own life only an extra counter!

These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.

Captain Future #23: The Harpers of Titan

Born and raised on the moon, Curt Newton survived the murder of his scientist parents to become the protector of the galaxy known as Captain Future. With his Futuremen, Grag the giant robot, Otho, the shape-shifting android and Simon Wright, the Living Brain, he patrols the solar system in the fastest space ship ever constructed, the Comet, pursuing human monsters and alien threats to Earth and her neighbor planets.

This is one of the infamous "final seven" Captain Future tales. After a run of twenty pulp issues, the quarterly magazine closed. But that was not the end of Captain Future. He returned in a series of short stories published in Startling Stories magazine, beginning with the January 1950 issue. Edmond Hamilton, creator of Captain Future and author of the majority of the full-length novels, returned to pen seven more Captain Future stories. His style had matured, as had his original audience, and these final seven Captain Future stories are considered to be some of his best. Captain Future left the pages of Startling Stories with the May 1951 issue, but editors left open the possibility that Captain Future might return some day. True fans are still waiting. Until then, Captain Future returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.



Terror Tales: Nat Schachner, Book 1

This breed of pulp story survived less than ten years, but in that time, they became infamous, even to this day.

THE SHADOW: YEAR ONE #1     
Coming in February!
Written by Matt Wagner, art by Wilfredo Torres, covers by Matt Wagner, Alex Ross, Chris Samnee, Howard Chaykin.

The Shadow is a character that has lasted through decades on the pages of pulp magazines, over the radio airwaves, thru the silver screen, and in the panels of comic books. Shrouded in mystery, his origins have been explored and hinted at over the years...but never fully revealed. Much is known of Kent Allard/Lamont Cranston's years spent in the Orient and Central America--wherein he gains his powers and purpose...but not how he first developed his persona as the Master of Darkness. Eisner Award-winning author, Matt Wagner is joined by artist Wilfredo Torres in an exhilarating 8-issue limited series that will explore the dynamic events that first drew Cranston back to the States, how he first met his companion and lover, Margo Lane, how he began to assemble his vast network of agents and how he first adopted the famous black hat and cloak as his alter-ego's disguise--all secrets that, up until now... only The Shadow knew!

Tarzan Feature Film - Alexander Skarsgard is the front runner for the role of Tarzan!
Alexander Skarsgard has emerged as the frontrunner to topline David Yates' "Tarzan" movie at Warner Bros.
Skarsgard doesn't have an offer and the studio hasn't finalized any casting decisions for the film, which has yet to go before the studio's greenlight committee. However, with a summer start date being planned, it is expected to be greenlit before the end of the year, as Warner is high on Yates and wouldn't tie up his schedule with a movie it has no intention of making.


Skarsgard would play John Clayton III, aka Tarzan. Years after he's reassimilated into society, he's asked by Queen Victoria to investigate the goings-on in the Congo. Tarzan teams with an ex-mercenary named George Washington Williams to save the Congo from a warlord who controls a massive diamond mine. Samuel L. Jackson is being eyed to play Williams.

A bigscreen adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' series of novels, "Tarzan" is being produced by Jerry Weintraub, Alan Riche and Peter Riche of Riche Prods. and Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg of Dark Horse Entertainment. Numerous scribes worked on the script including John August, Cormac and Marianne Wibberley and most recently, Adam Cozad.

They were STRANGE ENEMIES! Once they were just two young lovers, pledging their devotion in a Mecklenberg garden. Now they are reluctant rivals enmeshed in the biggest conflict the world has ever seen. While the Great War had forged him into the so-called Brain-Devil, America’s top agent, she had become the famous Fraulein Doktor, Germany’s most alluring and elusive spy. When love and loyalty collide in eight epic tales of WWI aviation and intrigue, the bullets—and the sparks—are going  to fly.

THEY'RE BACK - MYSTERY MEN (& WOMEN) VOLUME 3!

Airship 27 Productions
is excited to announce the release of their third MYSTERY MEN (& Women) anthology celebrating the creations of brand new pulp heroes to follow in the steps of the classic avengers of old.  Managing Editor, Ron Fortier explains it this way, “After doing new stories of classic pulp heroes for nearly four years, many of our writers starting getting the itch to invent their own original pulp characters.  This anthology series addresses that need and has been a huge hit with all our readers.”

As in the first two volumes in this series, a quartet of today’s most ambitious pulp writers put on their creative caps and have whipped up four thrilling brand new pulp adventures crammed with wall-to-wall action. In MYSTERY MEN (& Women) Vol III we get to meet three brand new characters and have the pleasure of enjoying the return of a familiar character from volume two.


THE SKEIN - A black veteran of World War One returns home to the bayou country only confront an evil practitioner of the voodoo magic is turning living people into lifeless zombies.  Donning his old doughboy uniform and a gasmask, the Skein is born to protect the innocent and defeat the wicked, written and created by Kevin Noel Olson

THE BROWN RECLUSE – Next, in the grand tradition of the old pulp magazines comes a new series that focuses not on the stalwart heroes of the tale but rather on its dastardly villain.  A mad scientist whose genius is capable of inventing the most bizarre weapons, the Brown Recluse has but one goal in mind, the complete domination of all mankind under his heel. He is the invention of writer by Greg Gick.

KIRI - A beautiful female samurai comes to New York in the early 1930s employed as the personal aid to a newspaper business woman wanting to clean up the city from vice and corruption.  Along the way, Kiri stumbles on a white slavery ring connected to a former ally who murdered her teacher back in Japan.  Suddenly her mission becomes that of personal vengeance and before it is over blood will be spilled.  Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to welcome gifted writer Curt Ferlund to our ranks and premier this truly wonderful new pulp hero.

MONGREL (Chapter Two) – And lastly the saga of the modern day action hero, Mongrel, continues in this second chapter picking up where the first ended.  There is a conspiracy to destroy Mongrel’s family, the owners of a multi-faceted high tech communications empire.  Using disguised, sophisticated cyborg assassins, the enemy strikes from the shadows.  This is Airship 27 Productions’ first on-going chapter serial and is presented by the creator of Dillon, the one and only Derrick Ferguson.

Airship 27 Productions’ 14th title of the year features a stunning cover by artist Marco Turini with interior illustrations and designs by Art Director Rob Davis.  Here once more are four fast-paced, colorful heroes created in the spirit of the golden age pulp avengers and brought to you by the publisher where adventure reigns.  Airship 27 Productions.  PULP FICTION FOR A NEW GENERATION!

BROTHER BONES - New Edition!

Airship 27 Productions
is truly happy to announce their new edition of the best selling BROTHER BONES – The Undead Avenger collecting the first seven Brother Bones tales.

“As you’ll recall, we ended our relationship with out old publisher at the start of the year,” informs Airship 27 Managing Editor Ron Fortier.  “That meaning many of the tiles I had personally penned would no longer be available through their catalog.  Our plan was to systematically release new editions of these books under our own banner.”

What Fortier and his partner, and Art Director, Rob Davis, did not foresee was how record breaking their year would become.  “In the past we had never put out more than twelve books a year,” Fortier continues.  “You can imagine how personal amazement when recently we took stock of the past few months and realized we’d already done thirteen books thus far and the year is still not over.”

Of course this positive aspect of putting out new titles began to lessen the available production time in getting our new editions of those older books.  Still, one by one, new editions of Fortier’s work began to appear.  One of the most in demand was his collection featuring the Undead Avenger of Cape Noire, Brother Bones, which has had a huge resurgence in popularity recently.



“We had just begun releasing audio recording of those stories and one of our diehard fans commissioned a one of a kind action figure from Marshall Made Collectibles.”  Fortier’s enthusiasm is apparent as he related the events of the past few months.  “It seemed like Bones was becoming a big hit with our fans, many of whom had never read the book and were frustrated to learn it had gone out of print when they tried to buy it.”

The new Airship 27 Productions edition of BROTHER BONES – The Undead Avenger, is now available for sale. 
It can be had at the following on-line locations.

THE GOLDEN AGE
Classic Superhero Action

Now in paperback!


White Rocket Books proudly announces the release in trade paperback format of THE GOLDEN AGE, a new superhero novel featuring the classic Standard/Better/Nedor characters from 1939-56, by noted pulp and superhero author Jeff Deischer (Spook Trail; The Winter Wizard).

The year is 1942, and the world is at war.  Spies and saboteurs seem to lurk around every corner of America.  But the real danger awaits in the shadows.  Following the Battle of Midway, the Dragon Society of Imperial Japan dispatches its most deadly agents on a secret mission to knock the US out of the war.  Only the Black Terror, Fighting Yank, Pyroman and the other classic heroes of the Auric Universe can stop them.

“This book is the end product of the natural evolution of my writing, combining my two great loves, pulps and superheroes,” says Deischer.  “So its writing should come as no surprise. Throw in World War II and forgotten heroes, and it was probably inevitable.”

The book includes a special Introduction by comics and pulp historian Will Murray.

“It’s a terrific read,” adds Book Cave co-host and pulp author Art Sippo.  “It doesn’t get better than this.”


In its first days of release, THE GOLDEN AGE debuted at an astonishing #4 on the New Pulp Best Sellers List. White Rocket Books invites you to pick up a copy and discover the thrilling action and adventure of World War II—Auric Universe style—for yourself!

White Rocket Books is a leader in the New Pulp movement, publishing exciting action and adventure novels and anthologies since 2005, in both traditional and electronic formats.   White Rocket books have hit the Amazon.com Top 15-by-Genre, have been nominated for many New Pulp awards, and have garnered praise from everyone from Marvel Comics Editor Tom Brevoort to Kirkus Reviews.

THE GOLDEN AGE is a $15.95, 6x9 format trade paperback from White Rocket Books.

THE COMPLETE JOHN THUNSTONE

(Writer) Manly Wade Wellman (Cover) Raymond Swanland
JOHN THUNSTONE is at the printer!

Since announcing this 672-page title last year, we've really been packing in the extra goodies that we hope will make this one of your favorite books of all time:
  • Cover art & endsheets by Raymond Swanland
  • Interior artwork by George Evans from LONELY VIGILS for these tales
  • Chris Kalb-designed cover titles
  • Introduction by Grandmaster Ramsey Campbell
  • We have secured 100 Manly Wade Wellman autographs for the book's 100-copy Slipcased Edition!
  • The slipcased edition is also signed by Campbell, Swanland and will feature two dustjackets WITH an exclusive chapbook of Wellman's "Judge Pursuivant" stories (published in /Weird Tales/ as by "Gans T. Fields") also illustrated by Evans and featuring the cover from the 1946 UK edition of these stories, ROMANCE IN BLACK.
  • We are also preparing a 26-copy LETTERED edition which will also bear a Wellman autograph, along with some extra material that we will share in the near future.


Originally from the pages of Weird Tales magazine, here collected are all 16 stories and 2 novels of the detective, scholar, and playboy-investigator of supernatural events. Armed with an unparalleled knowledge of the occult — and his magic sword-cane — he takes on vampires, werewolves, and the enigmatic shonokins, creatures who ruled before the dawn of man. His arch-enemy is the evil sorcerer Rowley Thorne, a character loosely based on occultist Aleister Crowley.

Madle is working on his introduction to THE SIX SLEEPERS and we expect Volume Five ready to go soon after.
Fredric Brown Mystery Library
Work continues on the first two volumes of the FREDRIC BROWN MYSTERY LIBRARY. This undertaking turned out to be more daunting the we expected! We finally have all the texts necessary for these two volumes, but we're having our proofreaders work against the original pulp magazines!

Tracking down and securing all these publications was very time-consuming, but the added bonus will be the inclusion of the original pulp interior illustrations. Not all such illos were masterpieces, but there are plenty of gems and we're going to include them all for you.

The links below will detail the contents of the first two volumes:

STORIES FROM THE 30TH CENTURY
Now available!


iPulpFiction.com and the Manley Wade Wellman Literary Estate are happy to present STORIES FROM THE 30TH CENTURY. The series kicks off with "When Planets Clashed" and "Disc-Men of Jupiter"

From the series editor, Jeremiah Rickert:
Welcome to Manly Wade Wellman's "30th Century" series!  These stories, set in Wellman's shared "30th C." universe, were published sporadically between 1931 and 1951.  An effort has been made to identify stories that have not yet been included the series by previous bibliographers.

The first two stories in the series, "When Planets Clashed" and "Disc-Men of Jupiter" are both in that category.  "Clashed" was originally published in Wonder Stories Quarterly in  Spring of 1931 and reprinted as a Hall of Fame Novelet in Startling Stories, March of 1947.  "Disc-Men" originally appeared in the September 1931 issue of Wonder Stories and was reprinted in Startling Stories in May of 1947.  I have included these stories in the series because their events are referred to in the past tense in the main body of 30th Century stories and they feature many of the main details found in all of the stories:  Earth is governed by a "World League" based in St. Louis, Mars' capital is Ekadome and its pleasure city is Pulambar. 

In "Disc-Men" we also have the first mention of the recreational "joy lamps" used by human and Martian pleasure seekers.  There is a character named Thor Harvison who runs a ship manufacturing company on Mars.  In 1943's "Frontier Planet" there is a Lt. Harvison who is the cousin of the Harvison Power interests on Mars.  Additionally there is a character named Rolf Bromburg who may be the hero that Ft. Bromburg is named after in 1941's "30th Century Duel." The main difference between these proto-30th Century stories and the others is the appearance of the Martians themselves.  In these early stories they appear as lean mahogany-skinned humanoids and not the flower-headed speech-slurring blobs of fun we will read about as the series progresses.  Wellman's pulp stories hold up remarkably well and I am sure you will enjoy reading them as much as I have.

Pulp AdventureCon
Pulp Collector Mecca in New Jersey
November 10th, 2012

Doc Savage team Will Murray and Joe DeVito are guests!

On Saturday, November 10th, 2012, the annual Pulp AdventureCon will convert the Ramada Inn in of Bordentown, NJ into a Pulp Collectors Mecca.  There will be vendors with rare pulp magazines, movie posters, and vintage paperbacks. There are also several new publications that are reviving both the heroes and tradition of pulp fiction -- and here you’ll find the original pulps, where it all began during the Depression, in plentiful supply.

Pulp magazines were an inexpensive form of entertainment in the days before the internet, cell phones, and even television.  They first appeared with Argosy in 1897, flourished in the 1930s, and ultimately died or reinvented themselves in the 1950s.  Characters like The Shadow, Tarzan, and Zorro prospered in the pulps, while authors like Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and Ray Bradbury actually started their careers in these rough old magazines.

Doc Savage fans will enjoy meeting author Will Murray, noted pulp historian, currently writing The Wild Adventures of Doc Savage from Altus Press.  Murray’s collaborator, noted illustrator Joe DeVito, will also display several of his Doc Savage paintings.  Also, Mala Mastroberte will unveil her new book, Malaland!, a collection of her pulpiest poses, photos, and pin-ups. Mala is passionate about vintage pin-up art, especially pertaining to pop-culture such as movie posters, pulps, and vintage paperbacks. She is a self taught photographer, model, stylist and editor.


The Pulp AdventureCon will be held at the Ramada Inn, 1083 Route 206, Bordentown, NJ.
The show runs from 10AM to 5PM. Admission is $5.00.

SENTINELS: THE RIVALS
THE SECOND OMNIBUS PAPERBACK!

The Second Trilogy of Van Allen Plexico’s Superhero Novel Series
At Last in a One-Volume Edition!

White Rocket Books proudly announces the release in trade paperback format of Van Allen Plexico’s SENTINELS: THE RIVALS, a one-volume collection of the second trilogy of novels in the famed cosmic superhero saga!

Weighing in at a whopping 712 pages and with a stunning painted cover by celebrated artist Mitch Foust, the “Rivals” Omnibus also features no fewer than fifteen full-page interior illustrations by series artist Chris Kohler.

The book contains all three volumes of the second Sentinels trilogy (The Shiva Advent, Worldmind, and Stellarax) in their entirety, continuing the epic adventures of the heroes and villains of this fascinating and compelling superhero universe. 

With most of the protagonists and their foes established in the first trilogy, The Grand Design, this new and even more epic storyline sees the Sentinels confronted by four vast and mind-bogglingly powerful entities in the classic Jack Kirby “Space god” tradition of Galactus and the Celestials.  When these four cosmic “Rivals” square off and prepare to do battle in the skies above the Earth—one a living Death Star filled with robotic warriors, another a sentient star that absorbs everything into its memory banks—only the human heroes and their new allies (and old enemies) stand in the way.  But how can mere mortal beings hope to stop—much less defeat—such menaces?  With team leader Ultraa and powerhouse Vanadium out of the action, it will take every bit of resourcefulness and cunning at Esro Brachis’s disposal to come up with a solution. Fortunately for the Earth, he has a plan.  Unfortunately, it’s an absolutely insane one:  He and Pulsar must lead their motley crew on a mad dash into the very heart of the Worldmind.


“This is it,” says author Van Allen Plexico.  “This is the story I had to wait three years and three previous novels just to begin to tell.  I love the first trilogy, The Grand Design, dearly, of course—but this saga, The Rivals, is where everything comes together.  Questions raised as far back as the very first page of When Strikes the Warlord get their answers here. Ultraa and Vanadium face long-awaited judgment. Esro and Pulsar must reach down and find what it takes to lead the team in their absence.  New heroes and villains make their appearance.  All this, and much, much more.”
Plexico’s Sentinels series has been praised by Kirkus Reviews for offering “a fresh take on the superhero theme,” and by Pulp Fiction Reviews as “spectacular, action-packed, imaginative and wonderful.”  Noted superhero novelist Ian Thomas Healy called them “Kirbyesque,” describing Volume One as “the first book that successfully translates the feel of a comic book into prose.”

White Rocket Books is a leader in the New Pulp movement, publishing exciting action and adventure novels and anthologies since 2005, in both traditional and electronic formats.   White Rocket books have hit the Amazon.com Top 15-by-Genre and have garnered praise from everyone from Marvel Comics Vice-President Tom Brevoort to Kirkus Reviews.

SENTINELS: THE RIVALS (Omnibus 2) is a $21.95, 6x9 format trade paperback from White Rocket Books. 
(The individual novels are already available as $2.99 e-books for Kindle and other e-readers.)

712 pages; 15 full-page illustrations by Chris Kohler

BEHOLD "THE NIGHT WIND" by Christopher Yates
Cover and interior illustrations by Mark Maddox

A fifth, original installment of the Night Wind saga
set immediately after the events in the fourth installment!

Coming soon!

Bingham and Katherine Harvard are polite, New York society.  He is an Ivy League graduate, heir to his foster father’s fortune, and successor to the presidency of New York’s Centropolis Bank.  She is the daughter of a United States Senator, scion of the Maxwilton family, the political dynasty of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  Husband and wife reside at the sprawling Long Island estate, Myquest. 

The Harvards’ elevated status in the social register is not high enough to avoid the clutch of crime.  Years ago Bing earned an alias, The Night Wind, in a bare-fisted brawl with the law in an all-sweeping revenge against false witnesses.  With five times the strength of an average man, Bingham prevailed.  Later, Lady Kate was a prisoner in her own home, but sprang man-traps of her own devising in a successful bid at freedom.  Using sleuthing skills attained as a New York City police detective was no small advantage during her plight.  Together they have resolved to take the battle to the villain instead of awaiting fate to drop yet another scoundrel on their doorstep.

Aided by the United States Secret Service, and their valet, Julius, the Harvards race headlong into chaos.  Dubbed the Dry Capital of the World and home of the Anti-Saloon League, the principal proponent of the successful drive for national prohibition, one would never guess that Westerville, Ohio could be described as chaotic.  But a half dozen suspected arsons hit speakeasies in nearby Columbus, drawing in organized crime from New York to protect their business…until they, too are hunted down like game animals.

Amidst this turmoil, United States Senator Warren G. Harding is conducting his campaign for President of the United States from the front porch of his home in Marion, Ohio.  His challenger for the Oval Office is the Governor of the State of Ohio. 

History is being made in central Ohio this fall season of 1920.  Will it be historically tragic or triumphant?

The ingredients for anarchy are in the bowl waiting to be stirred.

Be prepared to be blown away.  Behold, “The Night Wind!”


The first four installments of the Night Wind saga were written by the father of serial detective Nick Carter, Frederic Merrill Van Rensselaer Dey, and published by the man who introduced the “pulp” magazine to the world, Frank A. Munsey.  The Night Wind was a super-endowed character whose life-span in American popular culture ran from 1913 to the early 1920s.  

Bingham Harvard, alias the Night Wind, used his prodigious strength (roughly 5 times that of the average man) to rescue himself, friends and family from various plots of “frame-ups,” extortion and outright physical violence.  His exploits were serialized in Munsey’s fiction magazines The Cavalier and All-Story Weekly just a few months after the appearance of Tarzan in October 1912 and wrapping up just before the first appearance of Zorro on August 1919 by the same publisher.


Upon the close of a pulp magazine serial, the installments were bound and reissued in hardcover format. There were a total of four hardcover novels starring the Night Wind: Alias “The Night Wind,” The Return of the Night Wind, The Night Wind’s Promise, and The Lady of the Night Wind.  In 1923 the first novel was adapted for the silent screen and released with much popular appeal as Alias “The Night Wind.”

After almost 100 years out of print, Alias “The Night Wind” was re-released by Wildside Press in March 2007.  The Wildside Press edition of the sequel: The Return of the Night Wind was released in September 2007, and the third installment The Night Wind’s Promise hit bookstores in September 2008.  The fourth novel: The Lady of the Night Wind was released in April 2009. 

BEHOLD “THE NIGHT WIND” is a fifth, original installment of the Night Wind saga set immediately after the events in the fourth installment. 
BEHOLD “THE NIGHT WIND” was written under contract with Wildside Press, with cover and interior illustrations by Mark Maddox and a foreword by Win Scott Eckert

The copy-edited manuscript was delivered to Borgo Press, an imprint of Wildside Press, the first week of June 2012. 
Anticipated release is immediately before or amidst the 2012 Holidays. 
Formats, so far, are trade paperback and e-book, prices to be announced later. 

Stay tuned for the official release announcement…soon.

THE FRENETIC PEOPLE
by Ernest Pérochon
adapted by Brian Stableford

In 1925, Ernest Pérochon, a winner of the prestigious Goncourt literary award, penned The Frenetic People, a prescient warning against unchecked technology. The novel takes place in our 30th century, the 5th century of the new Universal Era, after a bacteriological war with Asia. Boundless energy is provided by the controlled disintegration of matter. The secrets of the atom have been uncovered. Cities stretch along the meridians of the globe, forming a planet-wide grid. But another, even more cruel war starts between rival meridians, using new weapons that mutate men and turn them into monsters... Shall Earth survive?

Pérochon suggests that the desire for impossible justice, honor and liberty has always been the motive compelling people to slaughter one another, and that mindless courage has always provided them with the psychological means. That supposition makes The Frenetic People distinctive in the tradition of utopian literature, posing a moral and pragmatic question with respect to the desirability and practicality of such lofty goals. It is an important work which remains well worth reading today.

THE VAMPIRE OF THE VAL-DE-GRACE
by Léon Gozlan
adapted by Brian Stableford

In 1849, the mysterious Doctor Salomon Kanali and his family arrive in a Paris ravaged by a cholera epidemic. But is this Kanali the same embalmer who claimed to have the power to resurrect the dead? And why does his wife fear that her daughter Marthe is being wooed by the same vampire who once destroyed her mother?

The Vampire of Val-de-Grâce (1862) is a horror story, a love story, a mystery, a comedy and, marginally, a scientific romance; unique in its excess and its bizarre absurdity, it has a certain precious verve and a capacity to make the jaw drop.It belongs to the cynical and tongue-in-cheek tradition of Ponson du Terrail's The Vampire and the Devil's Son (1853) and Paul Féval's Knighshade (1860), which teasingly refuse explicitly to confirm or deny the existence of vampires, but play extravagantly with the idea, while merrily exploiting its sinister fascination.

Blogging Austin Briggs’ Flash Gordon, Part 6  "The Radium Mines of Electra"  - Now online!
“The Radium Mines of Electra” was the sixth installment of Austin Briggs’ daily Flash Gordon comic strip serial for King Features Syndicate. Originally published between April 27 and July 11, 1942, “The Radium Mines of Electra” is the closest the daily strip has yet come to seeming like authentic Flash Gordon. While Briggs has not yet matched his mentor’s illustrative splendor in depicting Mongo, the storyline is one that might have been found in the Sunday strip.

It is the most remarkable advance in naval technology in decades - an attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. There is only one problem: A key element of the prototype has suddenly vanished, and the man who developed it is dead.  Now it's up to NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his team to go on a desperate international chase to retrieve it.  But as they close in on the prize they discover that they're facing a much, much greater threat than they ever imagined possible.  It's clear that if they fail in their mission, the world as they know it might end up a very different place - and not a very pleasant one

Nick Carter Detective Library – Issue Number 5
"The Cipher Letter; Or, Nick Carter's Iron Nerve"
By The Author of "Nick Carter"


Originally Published September 5, 1891.
"The Cipher Letter" is the fifth dime novel written for the
Nick Carter Detective Library by Frederic Van Rensselaer Dey.


Nick Carter is noted for being resourceful and this case certainly requires him to use all of his resources. There are two cipher messages, one more difficult to solve than the other, but he works them out to his satisfaction and that of the reader who is allowed to follow his reasoning in some detail. It is Nick’s wife Ethel who finds the first cipher concealed in a tube buried in the dirt in an urn in Madison Square and brings it to her husband who does not recognize its value at first. He is more intrigued by the mysterious letter received by Inspector Byrnes of the New York Police Department even though he thinks it a hoax. Still, he agrees to investigate when Byrnes asks his help and immediately begins disguising himself. The Inspector praises Nick’s ability with disguises, but the detective shrugs off such praise by saying that he has made it the study of his life and adds “All things are possible when one is determined to accomplish them.”

The case involves an abducted child, a retired blind banker named Archibald Kempton who is the target of a murder plot, and a scheme to steal an inheritance. In his disguise as a detective named Philips, Nick is trapped in an apartment that is set on fire. Unable to find a way out through doors, windows, or even through the walls, Nick escapes by ripping up the carpet and the floorboards and kicking his way into the room below.

Hard Case Crime - Coming in February!

SEDUCTION OF THE INNOCENT
Max Allan Collins
Cover art by Glen Orbik

COMIC BOOKS ARE CORRUPTING AMERICA’S YOUTH!

Or so the esteemed Dr. Werner Frederick would have people believe—people like the Congressmen holding hearings on banning violent crime and horror "funny books." And when the crusade provokes a most un-funny murder, Jack Starr—comics syndicate troubleshooter—has no shortage of suspects. Was it the knife-wielding juvenile delinquent or the naked seductress? Perhaps a frustrated publisher or an outraged cartoonist. Or was it a comic book reader...?

Inspired by the real-life 1950s witch-hunt against Tales From the Crypt publisher EC Comics, SEDUCTION OF THE INNOCENT pulls back the curtain for an insider’s view of the history of comics—and features more than a dozen brand new illustrations in the classic EC style by comic book legend Terry Beatty!

First publication ever!
In addition to his work for Hard Case Crime, Collins is famous as the long-time scripter of the Dick Tracy comic strip and comic books such as Batman and Ms. Tree


 

MARS ATTACKS #5 - Arriving in comic shops November 7th!

Full Color, 32 pages, $3.99

The Land of Ophir 
The complete ADVENTURE serial

By Charles Beadle
Introduction by John Locke
Now available!

The story: a group of world-tested, globe-trotting adventurers-a dog-eared diary for a guide-a carefully-plotted plan-an indomitable armed expedition-a journey into Africa, where brave men were known to enter, never to be seen again. The mission: a quest for fabled Ophir and its legendary riches.

THE LAND OF OPHIR is a freewheeling saga full of fascinating characters, action, suspense, mystery, even horror, told in Charles Beadle's inimitable style.

His three-part serial is reprinted for the first time since its 1922 appearance in ADVENTURE magazine.


6x9-inch perfect bound; 146 pages, $12.00 postpaid

Philip José Farmer: LORD OF THE TREES
Arriving in bookstores November 13!

"Having lived long enough with the charming fairy tale created by my biographer, I feel the time has come for the truth to be known. I propose to tell all; of the origins of The Nine, the elixir that gives us nearly eternal youth and superhuman strength, the struggles between us that set the world atremble."

The follow-up to Jose Farmer's shocking and controversial A Feast Unknown.
A brand-new edition of the classic novel.

Popular Mechanics The Amazing Weapons That Never Were
Robots, Flying Tanks & Other Machines of War

Arriving in book stores November 6!

Between 1910 and 1970, scientists and military experts made hundreds of predictions in Popular Mechanics about the future of warfare. Some of those prophecies were downright nuts, while others veered eerily close to reality. This collection of vintage articles, with their stunning original art, will spark the imagination of every military buff, retrophile, and futurist. And the jacket unfolds into an amazing 24” x 19” poster of fantastic machines, blasters, and flying tanks. Astrophysics professor, science-fiction author, and NASA advisor Gregory Benford provides an introduction to every chapter.

Pulp AdventureCon
Pulp Collector Mecca in New Jersey
November 10th, 2012

On Saturday, November 10th, 2012, the annual Pulp AdventureCon will convert the Ramada Inn in of Bordentown, NJ into a Pulp Collectors Mecca.  There will be vendors with rare pulp magazines, movie posters, and vintage paperbacks. There are also several new publications that are reviving both the heroes and tradition of pulp fiction.


Update!
Will Murray and Joe DeVito will be attending Pulp AdventureCon!
They are the writer and artist, of course, on
THE WILD ADVENTURES  OF DOC SAVAGE from Altus Press. 

Also attending will be Eric Battle, who drew the
TARZAN newspaper strip for a couple of years.

Last, but not least, Mala Mastroberte will be appearing. 
Mala has a new book coming out of her poses and pulpy homages.

Checkout Mala's website at http://malaland.artistswanted.org/


Pulp magazines were an inexpensive form of entertainment in the days before the internet, cell phones, and even television.  They first appeared with Argosy in 1897, flourished in the 1930s, and ultimately died or reinvented themselves in the 1950s.


Vendors and guests will be announced over the coming weeks.
Dealers: Cost is $45 for one table, and  $40 for additional tables.

The Pulp AdventureCon will be held at the Ramada Inn, 1083 Route 206, Bordentown, NJ.
The show runs from 10AM to 5PM. Admission is $5.00.
For more information, www.boldventurepress.com (coming soon) or boldventurepress@aol.com.

Pulp Magazines Project - Now online!
The Pulp Magazines Project is an open-access digital archive dedicated to the study and preservation of one of the twentieth century's most influential literary & artistic forms: the all-fiction pulpwood magazine. The Project also provides information on the history of this important but long neglected medium, along with biographies of pulp authors, artists, and their publishers.

At the heart of the Project's mission is the archive itself. In summer 2011, it began with a modest library of five representative first-generation pulp titles from the early twentieth century. Over time, the archive will expand, new magazines will be digitized, and contextual materials added. Eventually, the archive will feature a broad range of pre-1923 titles, post-1923 titles where copyright has lapsed, and full volume runs of select titles from 1896 to 1946.

The Project is dedicated to fostering ties between communities of collectors, fans, and academics devoted to pulp magazines, and will offer opportunities for research and collaboration to both scholars and enthusiasts alike. We will provide information on upcoming conferences and conventions, and promote new working relationships between academics and the hundreds of pulp fans and collectors beyond the college and university.



Pulp Newsgroups - Now online!
There are numerous pulp newsgroups that are of potential interest to pulp fans. 
Information on several of these groups and a link to sign up is posted below.

Abraham Merritt:
This group is dedicated to all of the fiction of ABRAHAM MERRITT. Merritt's novels, short stories, paperbacks, hardcovers, pulps, reprints, and any movies based on these works can all be discussed here. Also, any artwork from any of the above pertaining to Merritt's writing can be discussed and displayed.

The most fearful terror ever to be visited upon a city had struck with malicious force and suddenness at Cincinnati. So fiendish were the machinations of the misshapen and malignant little monsters who were making the city their unholy playground, Richard Wentworth, famed as the Spider, knew that only one man could be directing them in their devil's sport. Only Tang-akhmut, the sinister Egyptian, the man whose vices were ageless and uncounted, could be engineering those wholesale murders, torturings and mass kidnapings. Grimly, Richard Wentworth sets his face toward Cincinnati — and a finish fight with the Man From the East! Total Pulp Experience.

Kasma, baleful divinity from the wastes of Asia, had laid his blighting curse upon America. All who opposed him came to ghastly ends: amnesia, madness, and screaming, agonized death — for the cult of Kasma enforced its dread dictates with a new, deadly weapon, unseen, unheard, which razed the mightiest buildings, which lay wide regions barren — without man or bird or beast! One man, Jimmy Christopher — known in the Secret Service as Operator 5 — understood the grim purpose behind that crafty plan. And Operator 5, hampered by a superior's shortsightedness, beset on every side by peril and treachery, takes the greatest gamble in his career to keep an army of religion-crazed zealots from delivering America into the bondage of an Asiatic Moloch! Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.

Captain Future #22: Children of the Sun
Captain Future… the Ace of Space! Born and raised on the moon, Curt Newton survived the murder of his scientist parents to become the protector of the galaxy known as Captain Future. With his Futuremen, Grag the giant robot, Otho, the shape-shifting android and Simon Wright, the Living Brain, he patrols the solar system in the fastest space ship ever constructed, the Comet, pursuing human monsters and alien threats to Earth and her neighbor planets.
 
This is one of the infamous "final seven" Captain Future tales. After a run of twenty pulp issues, the quarterly magazine closed. But that was not the end of Captain Future. He returned in a series of short stories published in Startling Stories magazine, beginning with the January 1950 issue. Edmond Hamilton, creator of Captain Future and author of the majority of the full-length novels, returned to pen seven more Captain Future stories. His style had matured, as had his original audience, and these final seven Captain Future stories are considered to be some of his best. Captain Future left the pages of Startling Stories with the May 1951 issue, but editors left open the possibility that Captain Future might return some day. True fans are still waiting. Until then, Captain Future returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today's readers in electronic format.

Terror Tales: Arthur J. Burks, Book 1
In 1934 a new type of magazine was born. Known by various names — the shudder pulps, mystery-terror magazines, horror-terror magazines — weird menace is the sub-genre term that has survived today. Terror Tales magazine was one of the most popular. It came from Popular Publications, whose publisher Harry Steeger was inspired by the Grand Guignol theater of Paris. This breed of pulp story survived less than ten years, but in that time, they became infamous, even to this day. This ebook contains a collection of stories from the pages of Terror Tales magazine, all written by Arthur J. Burks, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
