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.

The Secret 6 Classics
Blood, Sweat and Bullets: Featuring The Suicide Squad
by Emile C. Tepperman

The Suicide Squad returns for six more adventures

COFFINS FOR THE SUICIDE SQUAD
Boldly, New York’s crime czar flung bis challenge before the F.B.I., daring the full might of America’s prize crime-fighting machine to a finish war! And Washington answered with the Suicide Squad—three grinning, fighting Volunteers of Death—to tame a murder empire!


THE COFFIN BARRICADE
Eight young special agents went out to get the Undertaker, unknown Czar of the Corpse Bazaar. Eight came hack—in caskets and embalmed! So the Chief sent out the Suicide Squad—Murdoch, Kerrigan and Klaw. He figured they’d lived close enough to Death to be able to find the Undertaker—and put him six feet under!

THE SUICIDE SQUAD MEETS THE RISING SUN
We are all engaged in the defense of our great nation. But, in one of the most amazing chapters of this war, it became the grim task of Kerrigan, Murdoch and Klaw, three lone champions of democracy, to find and destroy a Japanese Army of nine thousand brutal fanatics—who were hidden here in the United States!


SO SORRY, MR. HIROHITO!
Kerrigan, Murdoch and Klaw, the famed Suicide Squad, had always fought side to side, welcoming any odds. But on that nightmare night in Valparaiso, Johnny Kerrigan stood alone against the Jap horde, while Steve Klaw went to wrest the great ship-building works from the Axis—with a thirteen-year-old girl as his only ally!

TARGETS FOR THE FLAMING ARROW
They had no clues, nothing but the charred arrow which had snuffed out the life of the American diplomat. But more important, Kerrigan, Murdoch and Klaw had almost no time at all in which to work, for within four days, the Flaming Arrow’s medieval minions were scheduled to destroy America’s vast war effort. Could even the famed Suicide Squad stop this Axis grand coup—before they too became living targets for the Flaming Arrow…?

BLOOD, SWEAT AND BULLETS
The Ox had America neatly packaged to deliver to Hitler on Christmas morning. And, with only five shopping days left to Christmas, Kerrigan and Murdoch bartered their partner’s life as the price of her freedom. But Steve Klaw found that he had to chase death three thousand miles to seal his bargain—while Kerrigan and Murdoch were helpless save to rush him to his doom!

Conan The Barbarian
Arnold Schwarzenegger to star in new Conan film!

Universal Pictures has made a deal for The Legend Of Conan, an action film that will star Arnold Schwarzenegger in one of his signature roles as Robert E. Howard’s mythic barbarian. The deal brings Conan and Schwarzenegger back to Universal, which released the first film that launched Schwarzenegger’s movie career back in 1982. Universal has world rights on the film.

The film will be produced by Fredrik Malmberg and Chris Morgan. Malmberg is CEO of Paradox Entertainment, which holds the rights to Conan. Morgan is the Universal-based writer and producer whose credits include the last four Fast And The Furious films, along with Wanted and 47 Ronin. Morgan has hatched the story and might write the script. The caveat is that the studio wants The Legend Of Conan for summer 2014, and Morgan might not be finished writing the seventh Fast And Furious installment by then. If that happens he will be a very active producer, because this is Morgan’s dream project.


Paradox’s Malmberg, who moved the project away from Warner Bros after seven years of development with big-name filmmakers because the project was moving too slowly, feels that this is the version of the film that he and everybody else always wanted to see on the screen but couldn’t while Schwarzenegger was governor of California.

“The original ended with Arnold on the throne as a seasoned warrior, and this is the take of the film we will make,” Malmberg told me. “It’s that Nordic Viking mythic guy who has played the role of king, warrior, soldier and mercenary, and who has bedded more women than anyone, nearing the last cycle of his life. He knows he’ll be going to Valhalla, and wants to go out with a good battle.”


There are no plans for Momoa to return. Morgan said that in his mind, The Legend of Conan not only skips over that film, but also the 1984 sequel that Schwarzenegger starred in. The direct link is to the original, which was directed by John Milius from a script he wrote with Oliver Stone. That was a testosterone-laced exploration of Howard’s mythology of a child sold into slavery who grows into manhood seeking vengeance against the warlord who slaughtered his family and his village.

Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer
Warner Bros acquires film rights and plans a new film series!

Warner Bros has acquired the feature film rights to the Mickey Spillane series of mystery novels featuring private investigator Mike Hammer. The deal is a co-production between Film 360 and Thunder Road. The producers are Guymon Casady and Ben Forkner for Film 360, Basil Iwanyk for Thunder Road and Ken Levin, the longtime rep for Spillane’s estate.

Spillane wrote 13 Mike Hammer novels solo, beginning with the 1947 book I, The Jury.  He wrote another six teamed with Max Allan Collins. Spillane’s Mike Hammer was a prototype for the tough guy private eye, and the studio will try to resurrect the character in an attempt to build an action franchise. What Warner Bros and the producers haven’t yet decided is whether to keep Hammer in the hardboiled period setting of the novels, or turn Hammer loose in a contemporary setting. They will also need to choose one of the books, though I think I, The Jury is a heckuva place to start, even though it was twice before turned into movies.

While Ian Fleming acknowledged that Hammer was an influence on his James Bond character, Spillane’s signature character can also be likened to rogue heroes like Clint Eastwood‘s Dirty Harry and Lee Child’s Jack Reacher (who’ll be played by Tom Cruise in the upcoming Paramount film. Hammer was a solitary tough physical guy with an impatience for the legal system and no qualms about killing those who elude its grasp. Spillane’s series was huge when published in paperback; at one point in the 70s, Hammer novels took up seven spots in the 10 best selling books of all time. Hammer mysteries have sold 225 million copies globally.

The producers have already met with A-list screenwriters; some pitched keeping Hammer in period mode, while others sparked to bringing him into the present. Hammer has been out of circulation as a film or TV property for a long time, because of a rights dispute. Spillane passed away in 2006, which came one month after the death of his manager, Jay Bernstein (who also repped singer Tom Jones and Farrah Fawcett). Bernstein’s estate claimed ownership of the Hammer character. Levin spent several years in court, before the rights to Spillane’s work came back to the author’s estate and a clear title could be delivered for a movie deal. Spillane’s co-author Collins will be exec producer as will the author’s widow, Jane Spillane.

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.

THE RICHARD S. SHAVER SERIES: The first story in the Shaver Mystery Big Jim Steel Series. This is a tale of two planets, Earth and Venus, and of a man who found himself the plaything of the ugliest and oldest woman on the two worlds. She looked like a witch, and a capable witch has spells. This witch had had six centuries to study the ancient magic: the incredibly antique mechanisms left by the race whom we remember in vague myths only as—the Gods. One day I met a man who told me this story. Knowing as I do that the antique caverns and the ancient mech of the God race does exist; knowing that trees are rejuvenated by the grafting on of young trees, I could not help but see the possibility of the truth of this story. That children can be grafted on to aging people, and the young sap, the vital growth secretions of their bodies, used to make the modern vampire life on and on.

AMERICA’S ACE SPY RETURNS

Airship 27 Productions
 is thrilled to announce the release of the fourth volume in their best selling pulp series; Secret Agent X – Man of a Thousand Faces.

The greatest pulp spy of them all, Secret Agent X returns in four brand new adventures.  Continuing the excitement and thrills generated by the previous three volumes in this series, the Man of a Thousand Faces is back in four daring adventures written by today’s most talented pulp writers.

“Since starting Airship 27, Secret Agent X has been our flagship series,” explains Managing Editor Ron Fortier.  “Pulp fans just love this golden age spy and every time we put out a new book they not only rush to get a copy but they instantly begin clamoring for more of his exciting new adventures.  Pulps fans just can’t get enough of Secret Agent X and we’re only too happy to provide them with more.”

Deep in mountains of central Europe, Bobby Nash pits X against a deadly beast-man  with a special agenda while Jarrod Courtemanche has the master spy confronting a scientist who controls fears.  In a one of a kind cross-over, Agent X confronts one of the most nefarious pulp villains of them all, Fantamos, courtesy of Kevin Noel Olson and finally Frank Schildiner chronicles one of our hero’s earliest missions alongside the famed Sir Lawrence of Arabia in the burning sands of the Sahara.

“This is by far the most eclectic collection we’ve released thus far,” added Fortier.  The book features twelve interior illustrations by Art Director & Company Designer Rob Davis with a terrific cover by Davis and Shane Evans.  It is their second artistic collaboration on this highly popular series.

Dedicated to the protection of his country, the master of disguises, America’s top secret agent is in wavering his loyalty and courage as he once against takes on villainy in all its myriad forms.  He is the one and only Secret Agent X!

Nick Carter Detective Library -- Issue Number 4
"One Against Twenty-One; Or, The Ranch Robbery."
By The Author of "Nick Carter"

Originally Published August 29, 1891.
"One Against Twenty-One" is the fourth novelette written for the
Nick Carter Detective Library.


Detective Nick Carter is called to Inspector Byrnes’ office and asked if he will undertake a case in the mining camp of Hellion City, Nevada. The detective is given $10,000 in expenses to go there and learn what it is the townspeople want him to do for them. He will receive an additional payment at the successful completion of the case. Intrigued by this, Nick undertakes the trip from New York City to the far west. He needs a change anyway, he says, and this just fits the bill. Exit Nick Carter. The next scene is Hellion City, Nevada, where a placard tacked on the side of a building warns that one Benton Hawley has been tried by the tribunal known as “Twenty-One” and found guilty. He has forty-eight hours to leave town. Soon afterwards Benton Hawley is found dead with a dagger in his chest and a note attached to him declaring he has been “Executed by 21.”

A stranger arrives in town and announces that his name is “One.” To the discerning reader, it should be obvious that this is Nick Carter in one of his disguises. It doesn’t take long for him to win over the confidence of the rough element of Hellion City. With two exceptions, men populate Hellion City. The exceptions are Juno, the woman who runs the local gambling den, and a boy named Chick.

Six soaring stories from the January, 1942 issue of
DARE-DEVIL ACES magazine!


DARE-DEVIL ACES is one of several aviation pulps published by Popular Publications. Aviation pulps were an outgrowth of adventure magazines and came into their own as World War I ended and daring aviators such as Charles Lindberg and Amelia Earhart were grabbing headlines. Stories centered on WWI battle action, but shifted to modern conflict as WWII began.

DEATH PATROL by Ray P. Shotwell

What did it mean, that challenge from doom-laden skies—“Keep out of the air today—or you will die to the last man!”

Six imaginative stories from the February, 1942 issue of
SUPER SCIENCE STORIES magazine!

Presented by Black Mask Magazine and iPulpFiction

SUPER SCIENCE STORIES was published by Fictioneers, a low-end imprint of Popular Publications, from 1940 and 1943, and again from 1949 to 1951. It received praise from science fiction critics and historians. Science fiction historian Raymond Thompson describes it as “one of the most interesting magazines to appear during the 1940s,” despite the variable quality of the stories. Critics Brian Stableford and Peter Nicholls comment that the magazine “had a greater importance to the history of SF than the quality of its stories would suggest; it was an important training ground.”


CROSS OF MERCRUX By Harry Walton
A city that Time had forgotten… a house of forbidden mystery… a doorway where life and death were brothers… a story of two parallel worlds behind the streets of Old New York!

THE WATERS UNDER THE EARTH By James D. Perry
A dagger from the lost ages, a man from a land that has never been charted, a people to seek out and free from the shackles of the centuries—if you dare!

THE HUNTED ONES By John E. Harry
He had sworn to destroy an alien world—and himself with it. But one day under a battle-filled sky he discovered the strength of a conquered people’s creed; “There will be death but no retreat. And in the end there must he victory!”

Six rousing stories from the October 15, 1935 issue of  ADVENTURE!
Presented by Black Mask Magazine and iPulpFiction

Pulp magazines were the popular entertainment of their era and reflected the pop culture of the time. One of the earliest and most enduring of the pulps was ADVENTURE.

Stories range from classics to period curiosities, from mysteries to Westerns, to sports stories—and they may not always reflect modern ideas of political correctness. However, it is always a joy to "return to those thrilling days of yesteryear" and immerse yourself in the popular culture of a bygone era.

CROSS FIRE by Robert E. Pinkerton

SURPRISE ATTACK By Perry Adams
In the mountains of India a Cockney and a Sikh find that a fight with fists makes enemies and a fight with bullets makes friends.

Six terrifying stories from the September, 1934 issue of
TERROR TALES magazine!
Presented by Black Mask Magazine and iPulpFiction

TERROR TALES was a long-running American pulp magazine of the horror comics and weird menace genres. It was originally published by Popular Publications. The first issue was published in September 1934. One of the seminal horror pulp, it was joined shortly afterwards (1935) with its sister imprint, HORROR STORIES, also from the same publisher.

TERROR TALES followed many of the conventions of the horror comic genres, such as the use of scantily-clad damsel in distress covers and interior art. Although hit hard by the Senate comic book hearings and the Comics Code Authority, TERROR TALES would recover and continue to be published decades later.

HOUSE OF LIVING DEATH by Arthur Leo Zagat
Have you ever asked yourself the grim question: “Am I going mad?” Harold Armour, deserted by his friends and forgotten by society, fought that ghastly conjecture through long nights and days of panicked, mounting terror—while nightmare horrors came to life and evil, mindless creatures lived forever with him in the dark house where fear dwelt always. . A masterfully told tale of dark, impenetrable mystery and black passions, written against an eerie background that will thrill and shock you!


BLOOD MAGIC By G. T. Fleming-Roberts
All day and far into each night her ancient fingers worked busily over, tiny, needle-wounded figures—while fear spread swiftly through that desolate countryside and her neighbors died one by one!

DEAD MAN’S BRIDE  by Wyatt Blassingame
The boy and the girl were passionately in love. The undead who menaced their happiness should long before have abandoned all fleshly fancies. Yet Eve Wingard, vibrant with life, was needed in that shadowed realm where the dead walk always.

A NIGHT IN CAMBERWELL by John Flanders
A grimly realistic little tale of one dark night’s adventure that you will not soon forget…

HANDS BEYOND THE GRAVE By Henry Treat Sperry
A plain tale, simply told, by a man who lived two lives — and suffered much in both!

TERROR ISLAND Huge B. Cave
It was rather a grim gathering to begin with…. Before the first night of their strange reunion was over, the affair had become a nightmare of shrieking fear and ugly, bestial passion.

Nine exciting tales of yesteryear from the December, 1959 issue of
FIFTEEN WESTERN TALES magazine!
Presented by Black Mask Magazine and iPulpFiction

FIFTEEN WESTERN TALES was a late invention by Popular Publications editors. It first appeared in 1941, twenty years after the early western pulps started to emerge. It was published every other month until 1946 when it went monthly. That means that it had a slow time picking up a strong audience during World War II.

By 1946, however, FIFTEEN WESTERN TALES started to hit its stride, and it appeared monthly on a regular basis until 1951 when most of the pulps were dead or dying. Unlike most pulp genres, especially the detective pulps which died out by 1953 or so, Westerns, especially romance westerns, survived into the 1950s and longer.

TIN STAR By George C. Appell
With hell at his back he rode his last law-hungry trail—the killer sheriff of Tom Daw County whose own posse answered the challenge of his flaming sixes: “Ride with me—and die!”


DIAMONDBACK By Kenneth L. Sinclair
“Stick a badge on a skunk, Kid, and he’s a lawdog for all the smell… That’s somethin’ you wanta learn—if you don’t hanker to grow up in boothill!”


KILLER’S REST By George Kilrain

“Welcome to Eagle Rest, killer. The three R’s we teach are runnin’, rutin’ an’ a rope—and if you pass the course, why, school lets out to watch you die!”

BULLET BRAG By W. P. Brothers
“I’ve never lost a man,” Jim Fleming boasted—and backed his brag with lightning sixes even when the man he hunted was—himself!

WAY OF THE GUNBORN By T. C McClary
They still called him the Lobo Kid, and he still had a lobo’s pride that brought him—snarling and hated—back to one last kill!

BEYOND BOOTHILL By Philip Ketchum
Chuck Martin hated Frank Holt almost as much as he hated killing him—till he found in that flame-torn night that his sixes had bought Frank a life—

DEVIL’S DRIVE By C. William Harrison
“You ain’t gonna cheat us out of our chance to make you a hero, mister—not if we have to kill you first!”


TRIGGER TIME By Kenneth Fowler
“Shoot, crawl or die, mister, you still won’t sell your life cheap— for this killing is paid for—in twenty years of hell!”

GUNS OF DISHONOR By William Heuman

Six thrilling stories from the May/June 1939 issue of
STRANGE DETECTIVE MYSTERIES magazine!
Presented by Black Mask Magazine and iPulpFiction

It is quite surprising how many very accomplished authors contributed to Strange Detective Mysteries, and the other weird menace pulps. Of course, there was Hugh B. Cave who specialized in horror, but there was also Bruno Fischer, a regular BlackMask contributor and novelist who wrote as Russell Gray. There was also Prentice Winchell, a very prolific writer who wrote for Black Mask as Stewart Sterling, where he invented the special forces police procedural. Accomplished writers like Sterling, Cave, Fischer, and Schachner wrote brilliant hard-boiled horror tales, a specialty invented in Strange Detective Mysteries.

The Crystal Doll Killings by Hugh B. Cave
Twice on the merry holiday ski train, bizarre and ghastly death left a heap of broken crystals in place of vibrant living flesh, a warning of the horror that lay ahead—on the excursion to Satan’s ice-locked hideaway!

School for Slaughter by Edith and Ejler Jacobson
Fifty miles south of the Sing Sing death chamber, a grieving immigrant mother broke free from the clutching pall of fear that gripped New York’s Upper East Side… She talked—and died in a horrible welter of exploding flesh—as Michael December, ace private detective, signed up for a post-graduate course in the School for Slaughter!

The Corpse Clinic by Nat Schachner
Six hours after death, two judges sat on their benches to pronounce sentence on their murderers… Then they died again. Jerry Sloan knew he could solve these eerie, unearthly crimes, and cut short the slaughter list—if he could bait the invisible killer into striking at himself!

Satan’s Jigsaw Factory by Russell Grey
Willingly, three wealthy debutantes offered their gorgeous young bodies to the ripping blade of the scalpel killer… And Ethan Burr, practitioner of death, asked only for an invitation to join their last parade—to the charnel house of girls who would never walk again!

The Great, Grey Hounds of Death by Chan Corbett
Death’s starving pack raced under the Florida moon on the devil’s dog track… and human rabbits baited their fearsome feast-night run!

DETECTIVE FICTION WEEKLY magazine!

In June of 1928 it was renamed DETECTIVE FICTION WEEKLY and ran 14 years under that title, making this its most popular incarnation.

Summer’s Ending By H. G. Winter
An old house, secluded in the backwoods of Vermont, a missing woman, and a dead man’s brother… This can’t end well.


Death Can’t Wait By Frederick C. Painton
Into the grim world of broken men came a slightly tarnished angel in ermine, to sow thousand-dollar bills—and death.

Corn Whiskey Murders By Wyatt Blassingame
“Welcome to Sanctity Key, mister. Hell’s on a rampage and murder’s been done, but maybe we can fetch you a snort anyhow!” It goes to prove that the cup that cheers can be the potion that poisons.

I’ll Get Him, Boss By H. H. Stinson
“He’s a racketeer, a political boss, a gambling king—but he’s always been a right guy to me, and that’s good enough for my dough.” That statement sums up Mac’s feelings and explains his willingness to do anything, literally anything, his boss asks.

PULP ARK 2013 DATES AND LOCATION ANNOUNCED! 
APRIL 26-28TH, 2013

Pro Se Productions, a leading publisher of Heroic and Action/Adventure Fiction as well as the Founder and organizer of Pulp Ark, a writer's conference/convention that began in Batesville, AR in 2011 announces today the dates for the third annual event, PULP ARK 2013 as well as a change of venue.

Pulp Ark is a Writer's Conference/Convention focused on 'Pulp' fiction.  Although defined narrowly by many, Pulp Ark promotes Pulp Fiction as multi genre multi medium storytelling that typically involves action, adventure, larger than life heroes and villains, and a strong focus on both plot and characterization.  "Pulp," Hancock said, "began as a medium in which many great writers told a lot of wonderful stories and readers could pick 'em up a 100 or more pages at a time for a dime.  Although it's no longer that necessarily, the sensibilities of Pulp storytelling, the style, the methodology, all the stuff fans have remembered and enjoyed for over 80 years about those kinds of tales, all of that is still around and available from all sorts of authors, artists, performers and companies.  That is what Pulp Ark is all about."


"Pulp Ark 2013," stated Tommy Hancock, Pulp Ark Organizer, "will take place in a new facility and a new town, but remains in Arkansas!  Batesville, Arkansas (the site of the first two Pulp Ark conventions) has been nothing but a positive experience for Pulp Ark and the success we've had there, particularly in 2012, is one of the myriad reasons we decided to make a move.  Pulp Ark 2012 cemented for us the fact that not only would we have faithful vendors and guests willing to return for another go around or two, but that we also had a concept that appealed to fans of all ages and genres and mediums.  With that, the decision was either to grow or not.   Part of the decision to grow was whether or not to stay in Batesville.  Several factors, most notably partnering with an excellent facility that truly will take Pulp Ark to another level, led us to decide that the home of Pulp Ark 2013 would be Springdale, Arkansas."

Springdale is in Washington County located in Northwest Arkansas.  Considered part of the Fayetteville Metropolitan Area, Springdale is one town of several that are considered a piece of one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country.  With over 500,000 residents in and near Springdale, Pro Se believes that not only will this increase fan attendance and interest in the Writer's Conference/Convention that blends every genre and medium possible together, but will also attract both the loyal guests and vendors from the first two years of Pulp Ark as well as a whole host of new participants on that side of the table.

"Pulp Ark is a wonderfully unique creature in a lot of ways," Hancock stated.  "We definitely enjoy having that small town, almost family type feel for what we do, but we also have a truly kaleidoscopic reach with all the genres and creators that fall into our umbrella.  Prose, comics, audio, cosplay, even music, all of that and more contributes to what Pulp is.  New books, clasisc pulp mags, golden and silver age comic art originals, and more... Classic, new, and even Pulp yet to come all has a home at our convention and it was time to move Pulp Ark to a place where it...and all its wonderful supporters...could truly spread their wings."

Pulp Ark 2013 will be held in Springdale, Arkansas April 26-28, 2013 at the Holiday Inn Springdale Hotel and Convention Center in Springdale, Arkansas, 1500 South 48th Street, phone number- 1-479-751-8300.  For a peek at the venue, click HERE!

SPECIAL PRICES UNTIL JANUARY 1ST, 2013!  Any and all who plan to attend Pulp Ark 2013 and want to get the Discounted Room Rate MUST reserve a room or rooms by January 1st, 2013 to take advantage of the Special Pulp Ark rate of $84.00 a night.  To reserver your room online, please click HERE! 

PULP ARK 2013-Springdale, Arkansas!  For further information, go to www.prosepulp.com or contact Hancock at 870-834-4022 and/or proseproductions@earthlink.net.  Expect more Pulp Ark Announcements VERY SOON!

PULP ARK 2013 GUESTS OF HONOR REVEALED!
APRIL 26-28TH, 2013

Pulp Ark 2013, the Official New Pulp Creators' Conference/Convention in its third year announced today its Three Guests of Honor for the Third year of the convention to be held in Springdale, AR.

"Pulp," Tommy Hancock, Pulp Ark Organizer and Partner in Pro Se Productions, the company sponsoring Pulp Ark, "is a marvelous, massively diverse field...a style that has transcended its origins in the early 20th Century in cheaply printed magazines and found its way into every medium available to modern fans.  Classic characters and stories are finding new life with readers and enthusiasts today and new tales centered around original characters are exploding onto the scene as well.  This year, Pulp Ark 2013 will celebrate the variety that is Pulp in many ways.   Our Three Guests of Honor most definitely reflect both the differences and the common denominators in Pulp, both classic and new, both originals of today and inspirations of yesteryear.  

I am extremely proud to announce that Joe Devito, Martin Powell, and Paul Bishop
will be the Guests of Honor for Pulp Ark 2013 this year!"

Will Murray's Pulp Classics #16
Unabridged Audiobook

Terror Tales Volume 1
Read by Joey D'Auria and Michael C. Gwynne

Now available!

Among fans of classic pulp fiction, aficionados of supernatural stories consider Popular Publications' Terror Tales the magazine for people who found the Lovecraftian stories in Weird Tales too tame and Universal's classic monsters too Hollywood!
 
Between 1934 and 1941, Terror Tales and its legion of unholy authors spewed forth an unremitting litany of horror, terror, torment and torture—all directed at ordinary American couples faced with supernatural menaces torn from their deepest, darkest nightmares. Think Scream during the Great Depression. 

We have selected seven of the most compelling stories torn from the pages of Terror Tales for this sampler from Hell.

In Paul Ernst's horrific "The Mummy Maker," an innocent woman faces the fearsome fate of being mummified alive! Norvell Page's disquieting "Accursed Thirst" takes us into the dark mind of a vampire—or is it a werewolf? The specter of a dead Egyptian deity loosed upon the modern world comes alive in E. Hoffmann Price's eerie "The Cat Goddess." Asian elementals harass the curious in Arthur J. Burks' creepy "Six Doors to Death." G. T. Fleming-Robert's gruesome "Moulder of Monsters" serves up twisted human flesh. Maitland Scott's unsettling "Shadows of Desire" leads us inexorably to a traumatic climax. Finally, terror and horror compete for supremacy in Frederick C. Davis deeply disturbing "Dig Deep the Graves!"
 
Terror Tales is narrated with appropriate doom-laden solemnity by Joey D'Auria and Michael C. Gwynne. Shivers await! Horrors abound! Try not to listen after midnight. We are serious about this. Not for children! Seven terrifying hours. $27.98 Audio CDs / $13.99 Download.

Will Murray's Pulp eBook Classics
Now available!

Bringing the best of Classic Pulp to Fans today, Radio Archives presents Will Murray’s Pulp Classic’s line of top notch Pulp Fiction eBooks! 
 
New to Will Murray’s Pulp Classics, two new eBooks featuring the epic exploits of America’s best-loved pulp-fiction character of the 1930s and 1940s: The Spider — Master of Men!
 
Richard Wentworth — the dread Spider, nemesis of the Underworld, lone wolf anti-crime crusader who always fights in that grim no-man’s land between Law and lawless — returns in vintage pulp tales of the Spider, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.


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 #25: Overlord of the Damned
Throughout the dives of the Underworld and in the dens of criminals, the news was spread in eager whispers: "The Boss will get the Spider! He'll make himself th' biggest shot in the country!"... But those nearest the criminal genius sat silent, remembering the horrible acid vat reserved for those who talked too much. Richard Weatworth — that grim Spider who strikes when the Law fails or dares not — faces the bitterest decision of his life. His servants have been maddened, his beloved Nita is a hostage to doom, and he must brand Kirkpatrick — his very dearest friend — with the red seal of the Spider! 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 #36: The Coming of The Terror
America had never before known two such men as those who were pitted against each other: Richard Wentworth, the Spider, the avenger — and Tang-akhmut, the sinister Egyptian, the destroyer. Never before had America witnessed such Titanic Struggle. The man who came out of the East set out deliberately to rule this country — or ruin it — by debauching the women, by promising the men a carnival of looting and rapine and crime. Richard Wentworth knew that he alone could cope with this all-powerful Oriental criminal — yet Richard Wentworth had been swiftly stripped of his armor and his weapons, his wealth and his friends. An unarmed man attacking a Juggernaut, the Spider plunges into this epic battle! 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.

 
Fight alongside the Master of Men as the Spider takes on Evil in these two latest Ebooks from Will Murray’s Pulp Classics, only $2.99 each!

Operator 5 #17: Hosts of the Flaming Death
Gold — a nation's strength for war and peace — had been completely looted from the Treasury in Washington by an octopus-like international syndicate. A mysterious madman — more cunning even than death — captained the ruthless spy-crew which was sucking the life-blood from our land. The proudest nation in the world seemed helpless — doomed! One man alone, Operator 5 of the American Intelligence, grasped the full import of that crafty plunder-plan. And he — known to only his best friends as Jimmy Christopher — was spied upon by his brothers of the Service, suspected of treason by a short-sighted superior, hampered by senseless bureaucracy. In the hour of America's greatest peril, Operator 5 must sacrifice father, friends, honor, and his beloved in order to wrest victory from what promises national dishonor and ignominious defeat! 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 #21 January 1950 The Return of Captain Future
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.

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.





Terror Tales: Paul Ernst, 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 Paul Ernst, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Teel James Glenn
ADVENTURES IN OTHERWHEN
Now available!


“Author Teel James Glenn approaches the alternate universe theory from the standpoint of the pulp fiction author. His version of a time cop rides Slepnir, Odin's 8-legged horse and is stuck with a Chimp as a sidekick at a magic convention. Adolf Hitler turned from politics to become an adventure writer and heads to Egypt with Robert E. Howard (who  left Cross Plains, Texas). Add in a Skullmask story, a story featuring the intrepid newspaper reporter Moxie of Maxi and Moxie fame, a steampunk story of transformation, warbots and romance, and a medieval tale of magic and betrayal and you have a fun collection of pulp adventure set in a universe of maybes and what-ifs.

Teel James Glenn was voted Best Pulp Fiction Author of the year for 2012: in Adventures in Otherwhen he shows off his skill. Adventures is classic pulp--with strong men, females ranging from femme-fatale to the girl next door (with some who manage both), evil Nazis, an homage to Pulp's beginnings, and a couple of tie-in stories to Glenn's series.”
 
ADVENTURES IN OTHERWHEN is available in multiple eBook formats (HTML, Adobe PDF, eReader, ePub and Kindle/Mobipocket) at the low price of only $3.99.

For its first month of availability, until November 15, 2012, it'll be on sale for only $1.00!

Created by Harry Blyth, Sexton Blake's first adventure appeared in the pages of The Halfpenny Marvel in 1893. A year later, Blake became the regular star of the weekly storypaper Union Jack and, in 1915, star of the long-running Sexton Blake Library. With appearances across the company's wide-range of titles, Blake eventually solved over 3,800 cases, with 150 million words dedicated to his thrilling adventures.

SUMMER CAMP FOR CORPSES and Other Stories
The Weird Tales of Arthur Leo Zagat
With an Introduction by John Pelan

A true master of the Gothic, Arthur Leo Zagat wrote some of the most atmospheric of the weird menace stories, and collected here are several of his best tales. While his prose became crisper in Iater years, he still managed to imbue his stories with a sense of mounting dread that few of his contemporaries could equal.

Did his descriptions sometimes cross the Iine into ''purple prose''? Certainly they did, but the result was never Iess than successfully establishing an almost palpable mood of terror. The stories contained here are examples of a true master at work!

DARK SANCTUARY
by H. B. Gregory
With an Introduction by John Pelan

Selected as one of the thirteen best novels of supernatural horror of all-time by the Iate author/editor Karl Edward Wagner, Dark Sanctuary more than Iives up to its Iegendary status. First published in 1940, this powerful novel of Lovecraftian horror takes place in a demon-haunted abbey off the Cornish coast. H.B. Gregory demonstrates a sure hand at sustaining a sense of mounting dread surprising in a first novel.

The story opens with Anthony Lovell, Sr., master of the ancient abbey of Kestrel and its Iike-named island off the Cornish coast, raving in madness and fear over the ancient family curse that ''dwells in the bowels of the abbey rock.'' What has caused his madness is unclear, but it is obviously Iinked to something seen or experienced in Kestrel's ancient crypts. Lovell's son is called back from London and, soon thereafter, John Hamilton, a freelance journalist and friend to the younger Lovell, makes his way to Kestrel as well . .

Virtually unobtainable for over sixty years, the 2001 edition from Midnight House sold out quickly, Ieaving many aficionados of the weird tale disappointed. This new edition from Dancing Tuatara Press reprints the informative introduction by D.H. Olson from the Midnight House edition and adds a new introduction by John Pelan and an interview conducted with the author shortly after his ninety-second birthday.

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

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.

WEST POINT, 3000 A.D.--It was a sorry day indeed for Earth when she admitted Martian cadets to West Point for training. Garr Devlin was a denizen of the Underways, and to the Martian cadets, his entrance into West Point was the signal for war on Earth. Soon, he finds himself trapped in the Underways as Martian revolt flames, and he discovers the real meaning of West Point honor and of a thousand years of tradition.

THE INVADING ASTEROID--They were in Terrestrial uniform, but did not look like the sternest of warriors. A year ago they had been students together at the International University in St. Louis, looking forward to graduation in 2675. But 2675 was here, and already they had participated in the bitter conflicts that marked the beginnings of the was between Earth and Mars.

Pulp Detective - Now available!
Pulp Detective is a magazine based around three illustrated short stories. The stories are all set in a fictional 1930’s American city called Bay City, a city over run with organized crime.

The first story of each issue is in a third person perspective and follows the life of Federal Agent John Munro, as he takes on Bay City’s most notorious criminals. The intention is for the story line to be ongoing through each separate issue, so that the reader always wants the next instalment.

This is the same for the second story, which is in a first person perspective (which works well for private detective novels) and follows the life of Private Detective Henry Reed as he goes about Bay City solving his cases.

The third story in each issue will be random each month. Bank robbers, prize fighters, hit men and other criminals will be the centre of these stories all still set in the underworld of Bay City.

Each story is around 14,000 words and intended for a predominantly male readership of around 10 to 18 years of age. An age range which, in our opinion, is currently poorly catered for by the magazine industry.

ASTONISHING! ASTOUNDING!
John Bullard Stories by Malcolm Jameson
Introduced by Richard A. Lupoff

 During World War II Malcolm Jameson wrote some tales about the fighting forces of the far future featuring a cadet (and later commander) of the Space Patrol, John Bullard. He also penned a novella about the later days of Bullard, Quicksands of Youthwardness. Now Richard A. Lupoff has collected all the Bullard stories into this one volume, named after the SF pulps where they were first published. They are space opera and military SF at their best and great fun to read.

Richard Lupoff's introduction tells about the author, Malcolm Jameson, who has had two collections of his SF short stories published by Ramble House, The Chariots of San Fernando and The Alien Envoy, as well as a double-novel, Tarnished Bomb.

AUDIO BONES

In 2008, Airship 27 Productions
released BROTHER BONES; a collection of seven original stories featuring Ron Fortier’s original character known as the Undead Avenger. Taking place in the fictional port city of Cape Noir, the stories dealt with zombie dogs, gorilla gangsters, werewolf assassins and even a ghost train.  Throughout each, Brother Bones took on every evil with his twin blazing .45 automatics as the unstoppable vigilante. 

Now Airship 27 has teamed with Chris Barnes of Dynamic Ram Audio to bring these over the top pulp thrillers to audio and in two different options.  Initially each individual tale, all to be read by voice actor Mark Kalita, will be offered to fans as individual downloads from the Airship 27 website for the low price of $2 each. The first such, “The Bone Brothers,” which tells the origin of the character is now up and available.

Barnes is not shy about his love for the character.  “When Ron Fortier approached me to produce Brother Bones : The Undead Avenger, let’s just say he was glad he was thousands of miles away, because I would quite literally have bitten his hand off.  These stories begged to be given a full audio treatment, and both Mark Kalita and I are having an absolute ball putting these together!  We hope fans will enjoy listening to them as much as we are enjoying making them.”

As each new story is completed it will also be sold separately for the $2 price.  When all seven of the tales have been completed and sold individually, Airship 27 & Dynamic Ram Audio will make the entire audio book available to fans for the sale price of $9.99, a $4 saving from the individual offerings.

“It was our idea,” explained Fortier, the Airship 27 Managing Editor, “to offer fans of the character these smaller audio files for a very reasonable fee.  Brother Bones has a huge following and we are also delighted to have several of these made available just in time for Halloween.”

THE BONE BROTHERS, an audio pulp written by Ron Fortier and read by Mark Kalita is now on sale at the link below.

In a few weeks a brand new edition of the book will also be available on Create Space, Amazon, Indy Planet and Kindle.

Hell in Boxes: The Exploits of Lynn Lash and Foster Fade
Authored by Lester Dent, Introduction by Will Murray


In 1933, Lester Dent jumpstarted his pulp fiction career when he created scientific detective Lynn Lash. Operating out of a New York skyscraper, Lash tackled super-scientific threats the police could not handle, opening the way for Dent’s greatest creation, the immortal Doc Savage. All three Lash cases are included in this volume, including a rare story not published during Dent’s lifetime, "The Flame Horror."

Two years later, Dent produced a new gadget-wielding sleuth, Foster Fade, the Crime Spectacularist. Working for a major metropolitan tabloid, Fade solved crimes so bizarre they defied description. The entire Crime Spectacularist trilogy is presented for the first time ever in an authorized edition. This is Dent at his imaginative best--vintage hardboiled detective fiction with a weird menace twist!

THE HUMAN MICROBES
by Louise Michel
adapted by Brian Stableford


Once, Dr. Gael had removed a young woman from the hospital and taken her home to serve in his horrible experiments. He had attached her to the dissection-table; then, had put her to sleep and interrogated her while hypnotized during her vivisection. The unfortunate woman replied to her torturer, describing her suffering. Suddenly, she uttered a howl; shivers passed through her; she expired, giving birth to a girl...

In The Human Microbes, a man unjustly accused of a murder by an evil mastermind manages to escape the guillotine and embarks on a quest for revenge that will draw in its wake a cast of characters, including mad doctors, lost children, strange gypsies, Irish revolutionaries, Russian anarchists and Utopians.

Containing graphic scenes of vivisection, rape, pederasty and necrophilia, The Human Microbes is like Eugène Sue on speed, or Paul Féval on fast-forward.


US $20.95 / GBP £12.99
5x8 trade paperback, 268 pages

THE NEW WORLD
by Louise Michel
adapted by Brian Stableford

The Summer City was sheltered in places by Cyclopean mines; it was constructed so solidly that it resembled the ancient cities of Egypt. Hard labor and united will-power triumphed over the danger of torments by means of that massive architecture. The other city, deep underground, was a cavern of giants, forging popular thunderbolts for the conquest of universal peace, in which transformations would rapidly be made of humanity, rising, always rising, until the globe grew old and crumbled in space.

In The New World, the Arctic Utopian community founded at the end of The Human Microbes by Dr. Gaël, comprised of the victims of tyranny rescued by Captain Josiah and his "phantom brig," is threatened by the evil Judge Roll Wolff, intent on destroying it to cover his crimes...

The New World is an ambitious utopia in the vein of Jules Verne.

Blogging Sax Rohmer’s THE MASK OF FU MANCHU – Part Four - Now Online!
Sax Rohmer’s The Mask of Fu Manchu was originally serialized in Collier’s from May 7 to July 23, 1932. It was published in book form later that year by Doubleday in the US and the following year by Cassell in the UK.

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


 

JOE KUBERT’S TARZAN OF THE APES: ARTIST’S EDITION
Joe Kubert (writer & art & cover)
Celebrate the 100th anniversary of Edgar Rice Burroughs'
most enduring creation, Tarzan of the Apes!

Now available!

Joe Kubert is one of the most acclaimed comic artists ever. His career in comics began nearly 70 years ago and continues today. Throughout all those years his hallmarks have been a mastery of sequential storytelling and exceptionally fine drawing. Highlights of his career include work on Hawkman, Enemy Ace, Tor, Sgt. Rock, and the Viking Prince. But of all these exceptional artistic achievements one stands out: his remarkable adaption of ERB's Tarzan.

This Artist Edition collects six complete stories by Kubert, including the four-part classic, Tarzan of the Apes—the defining story of young Lord Greystoke being orphaned in the African jungle and adopted by the she-ape Kala, and grows to manhood to become Tarzan, lord of the jungle.

Hardcover, B&W, 152 Pages, 12” x 17”, ISBN: 978-1-61377-449-6

Mark Ellis: THE SPUR: LOKI'S ROCK
Now available!


From Mark(James Axler) Ellis, writer of Doc Savage, author of Cryptozoica and creator of the best-selling Outlanders series comes The Spur: Loki’s Rock.

The colony world in the Orion Spur known as Loki wasn’t so much lost as forgotten. In the 188 years since a world-wide catastrophe destroyed what passed for civilization  there,  Loki had become a savage wilderness of strange cultures, as well as being the sanctuary for every bizarre cult, mad sect and outlawed scientific discipline in the Sol 9 Commonwealth.Colonel Quentin Crockett of the department of OffWorld Operations leads a team of specialists to Loki to monitor, catalog, and if necessary, eliminate the  myriad societies that sprang up in the wake of the global cataclysm. In their armored ACP Ambler, the team travels Loki, searching for the lost Terran Enclave, while fighting off not only wild beasts, and the wilder natives but also the ruthless schemes of a mastermind about whom they know practically nothing.In The Spur: Loki’s Rock, Crockett and his team contend with the bizarre native fauna, but also with resurrected Nazi supermen, flocks of flying piranha, and the denizens of the kill-crazy town of Loki’s Rock, led by the psychotic Django Bonner and his bloodthirsty hench-wench, Pagan.

Ellis, the veteran author of 50 books as well as numerous comic properties, including such classics as: Death Hawk, The Justice Machine and Doc Savage: Man of Bronze, spent 15 years writing novels for Gold Eagle, the action-adventure imprint of Harlequin Enterprises.


Under the pen name of James Axler, he created the best-selling Outlanders series, now in its 15th year of consecutive publication, making it the most successful mass-market paperback genre series of the last 25 years. Ellis says, “Outlanders has been called the ‘thinking man’s action-adventure series,’ and I’m gratified by that because that was always my goal. Now, since most major publishers have done away with their midlist genre lines, Outlanders is also the last of its kind—and I’m perhaps the last of the breed. Outlanders is the last original “men’s adventure” paperback series published by a major house that was created and primarily written by a single author, instead of a committee of editors and freelancers. I don’t know if I’d call that single creator/author status a legacy, but it’s not an accomplishment very many commercial writers can cite nowadays.”

Ellis conceived The Spur series as way to blend two of his favorite genres—westerns and SF. “I’ve wanted to write an SF western-type series for a long time, but was too busy with other projects to really develop it, so it took a while for the concept to gel and solidify. I knew I wanted a ‘men’s adventure’ tone rather than a ‘pulp’ one, and although The Spur definitely possesses pulp sensibilities, I’ve stayed away from the charming, yet dated Planet Stories sort of approach. The Spur is tough and adult with a loose epic sweep. The best high-concept description is a mash-up between Sergio Leone’s spaghetti westerns, Firefly and Outlanders, but it has its own distinct flavor.” According  to Ellis, the longevity of Outlanders and the popularity of his lost world novel, Cryptozoica proves there is still a robust audience for the bare-knuckled, gun-blazing milieu of action-adventure. “A tinker should stay to his own, as the old adage goes,” says Ellis.“ A creator should stay with what he does best and what I do best is action-adventure.

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.

Pulpville Press - Now available!
This is a textural reprint of the A. C. McClurg printing plates. Adventures in Chicago, California, Honolulu, and an unfrequented Japanese Island, and among gang-men, policemen, sailors, million-aires, yachtsmen, nobility, savage head-hunters, and prize fighters, fall to the lot of Billy Byrne, the Mucker, as extraordinary a character as the world-famous Tarzan. Raised in the alleys of a gang-infested district of Chicago, among murderous thugs and porch-climbers, Billy Byrne grew up a mucker and a violent hater of law and order. A murder, of which he was accused, but innocent, hurled him into a series of startling adven-tures on land and sea that rival any that were ever narrated by Jack London or Joseph Conrad. They were the means, however, for giving birth in the mucker to a new and finer regard for the law and for having him meet the one woman who changed the current of his life.

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.

Will Murray's Pulp Classics #15
Unabridged Audiobook

Dr. Yen Sin #1
“The Mystery of The Dragon’s Shadow”

Now available!

Ever since Sax Rohmer conceived Dr. Fu Manchu, thriller writers have attempted to emulate his sinister appeal. No class of authors vied to out-villain Rohmer more than the pulp writers of the 1930s. The very best of these imitations was the work of top pulpateer Donald E. Keyhoe, later to make headlines as the retired Air Force officer who claimed that flying saucers were real.

Dr. Yen Sin lasted only three issues in 1936, but Keyhoe’s short-lived trilogy was a memorable attempt to give the “Yellow Peril” theme a mature and suspenseful treatment. The premise is a familiar one—a sinister Chinese super-scientist out to

conquer the world. Pitted against him is the Q-Group, headed by State Department operative Michael Traile, who because of a childhood accident cannot sleep. Instead, he employs Yoga as a substitute.
 
 Under Traile are a host of secret agents, chief of whom is Eric Gordon of the F. B. I., who reports personally to Director John Glover—actually J. Edgar Hoover. Adding a dash of feminine mystique is Sin’s mysterious cohort, Sonya Damatri, while Eric Gordon’s girlfriend, Iris Vaughan, furnishes the series’ love interest.
 
Beginning with The Mystery of The Dragon’s Shadow and continuing through The Mystery of the Golden Skull and The Mystery of the Singing Mummies, the running battle between Dr. Yen Sin and his sleepless nemesis is a riveting roller-coaster ride of exotic torture, diabolic doom devices and sudden death that rages from Washington, D. C. to San Francisco! One wishes that Popular Publications had seen fit to publish the promised fourth installment, The Mystery of the Faceless Men…This series was that good!
 
Here is the suspenseful first encounter between Dr. Sin and the forces dedicated to destroying his Invisible Empire. The Mystery of the Dragon’s Shadow is read with appropriate gravity by Michael C. Gwynne. Also included are a trio of Chinatown tales by Frank Gruber, Arden X. Pangborn and radio’s famed Arch Obler. Six exciting hours. $23.98 Audio CDs/$11.99 Download.

Spider #031: The Cholera King
Cholera! Like Death's own handmaiden, it was reaping a grim harvest. Corpses piled high in the streets of New York. Innocent men, women and children died faster than their wasted bodies could be cremated. Pestilence reached fatal fingers into every home; terror haunted every breast... Richard Wentworth — whom the Underworld knows and fears as the Spider — realized that a new criminal maniac, keen-witted and ruthless, had loosed the devastating disease to further his own mad ambitions. And the Spider, hampered as ever by the Law, hunted tirelessly by the vengeful lawless, accepts a challenge to the strangest duel in the world, in which the prize he strives to win seems to be disgrace and death!

Spider #032: Slaves of the Dragon
A depraved Oriental monster had planned the wholesale abductions. White slavery — the horrible traffic in women's bodies and souls — was stripping America of women. Hunted avidly by the Dragon's loathsome followers, they vanished, never to return, doomed at best to a vile life in the ghastly harems of the East... Richard Wentworth — whose adventures as the Spider have made him famous throughout the world — was the only hope of salvation for American womanhood. Pursued by G-men, with his beloved Nita captured by the Dragon, Richard Wentworth must battle on, when all others have gone down in shameful defeat!
 
Fight alongside the Master of Men as the Spider takes on Evil in these two latest Ebooks from Will Murray’s Pulp Classics, only $2.99 each!

Terror Tales: Ray Cummings
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 Ray Cummings, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
