The Jailbird Flight
By Donald E. Keyhoe

Below the Rio Grande he had once been known as “The Killer.” Now Captain Bruce Kirby flew through hell skies, leader of the strangest squadron that ever dared face death from flaming Spandaus. Outcasts—all of them—branded with the convict’s arrow! No cowards came to the Jailbird drome—only those dishonored war eagles who chose a chance to die in action rather than rot behind prison bars. Hot tempers, liquor, and the madness of war had brought them low—but beneath it all they still were men! A former U.S. Marine pilot, author Donald E. Keyhoe was a prolific contributor to the pulp magazines, but he is perhaps best remembered for his UFO research in the Fifties and Sixties. In August of 1931, Keyhoe started three long-lived series in three different aviation magazines: Captain Philip Strange in Flying Aces; The Devil Dog Squadron in Sky Birds; and The Jailbird Flight in Battle Aces. This volume features the first seven Jailbird adventures published by Popular Publications in 1931 and ‘32: The Jailbird Flight, The Drome of Vanishing Men, The Masked Skull Squadron, The Jailbird Ace, Dead Man’s Drome, Claws of the Jailbird, and The Skeleton Ace.

Captain Philip Strange, that is—ace pilot and so-called “Brain-Devil” of G-2 Intelligence. His assignment? Journey from the back-alleys of Paris to the skies over Germany, taking down flying fortresses, cursed aerodromes, strafing skulls, and other wild weapons of mass destruction! This fourth volume of Philip Strange missions includes seven thrilling tales: Satan's Staffel, The Vanishing Staffel, Hoodoo Drome, The Skull Staffel, The Skeleton Barrage, Staffel of the Starved, and The Staffel Invisible.

Altus Press
by Carroll John Daly (Author), Brooks Hefner (Author), Matthew Moring (Editor), Mark Krajnak (Illustrator)

Now available for pre-order!

Collected for the first time: the stories of hard-boiled detective Race Williams. Originally appearing in the pages of Black Mask Magazine, author Carroll John Daly pioneered the hard-boiled P.I. story and perfected the genre with his classic character Race Williams. Apart from the novel-length Race Williams stories, these classic hard-boiled thrillers have rarely been reprinted, if ever.

Volume 1 contains the first 17 Race Williams stories, all from 1923-26 issues of Black Mask: ''Knights of the Open Palm,'' ''Personal But Not Confidential,'' ''$3,000 to the Good,'' ''The Red Peril,'' ''Them That Lives By Their Guns,'' ''Devil Cat,'' ''The Face Behind the Mask,'' ''Conceited, Maybe,'' ''Say It With Lead!,'' ''I ll Tell the World,'' ''Alias Buttercup,'' ''Under Cover,'' ''South Sea Steel,'' ''The False Clara Burkhart,'' ''The Super-Devil,'' ''Half-Breed,'' and ''Blind Alleys.''

Three additional, early, first-person hard-boiled stories by Daly which laid the groundwork for the Race Williams are included as well: ''Dolly,'' ''Paying an Old Debt,'' and ''The False Burton Combs,'' as well as editorial pieces by Daly himself on his inspirations, writing style, and advice to prospective writers. And it's prefaced by an all-new, scholarly introduction by Professor Brooks Hefner of James Madison University.

Them That Lives By Their Guns: The Collected Hard-Boiled Stories of Race Williams Volume 1 is the most important release in years on the history of the Hard-Boiled Detective story.

Five French utopian fantasies by
Jacques Fabien, Victor Hugo, Gustave Marx, Jean-Baptiste Mosneron de Launay & Turrault de Rochecorbon.
adapted by Brian Stableford

The Aerial Valley (1810) proves that a utopian society can only maintain stability if it remains technologically limited and isolated from outside influences; it is a sensitive challenge to the philosophy of progress as an instrument of perfectibility.

The Year 2800 (1829) bases its anticipations of future improvement on bold social reforms.

Paris in Dreams (1863) echoes the then-ongoing endeavors of Baron Haussmann, who was busy remodeling the city in accordance with his own utopian design.

Victor Hugo's The Future was the first chapter of the great author's introduction to a guide-book produced for visitors to the Exposition Universelle of 1867.

Gustave Marx's Love a Thousand Years Hence (1889) is a satire of the glut of utopian accounts of future Paris, being elevated to the capital of a unified Europe.

5x8 trade paperback, 272 pages 

by Fernand Fleuret
adapted by Brian Stableford

I confided to Horatio my ambition to construct the automaton in his image...

Jim Click invents a robot in the image of his friend, Admiral Horatio Gunson, on the eve of a great battle. Everything starts going wrong when the robot kills his model. Frightened, the inventor then sets up a fabulous hoax, in which his automaton will act as if he were the real admiral. And after the fake Gunson wins the battle, no one discovers the deception, not the king nor his sailors, or even his mistress...

Fernand Fleuret's Jim Click (1930) was written at a time when androids were much in fashion throughout Europe, thanks to the widespread distribution of Karel ?apek's play R.U.R. (1920) and Fritz Lang's film Metropolis (1927), and, like those works, it is both a significant reflection of the spirit of its era and a work of enduring appeal and value, as readable and as effective today as it was then.

from The Memoirs of Sâr Dubnotal
edited by J-M. & R. Lofficier

The pale wisp of vapor that emerged from Annunciata's body condensed and took on the appearance of a human hand, suspended in mind-air, illuminated by an unknown mysterious light. "The hand of Ranijesti!" whispered Sâr Dubnotal.

From the sun-bleached streets of Tunis to the bottom of the seas, from the sordid back alleys of Paris to the blood-drenched trenches of the Somme, Sâr Dubnotal, the Great Psychagogue, his disciple Rudolph, his medium Gianetti Annunciata, and his trio of assistants, Frank, Fréjus and Otto, pursue evil wherever it hides.

The evil hypnotist Tserpchikopf, the monstrous Cthulhu, the diabolical Doktor Von Meyer, the vengeful wraith of Ligeia and the malevolent Helen Vaughn are amongst the foes they face in this volume.

Published anonymously in 1909 in a series of French pulp magazines, the Sâr Dubnotal series features one of the first superheroes of the supernatural. This collection includes one original, never translated before Sâr Dubnotal story and eleven exploits of the Great Psychagogue penned by seven modern masters of popular fiction.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
Message from publisher Ed Hulse....

As of today Blood 'n' Thunder's subscription policy is changing to reflect a decision I recently came to. BnT will cease publication as a periodical next year with issue #50, scheduled for Fall 2016. Since launching the zine in 2002 I've done a pretty lousy job of adhering to its stated quarterly schedule anyway, and as various aspects of my life have changed in recent years, BnT must change along with them.

Therefore, those whose subscriptions expire with the just-published #45 will be offered a renewal price of $50 for the remaining five issues to come. This will provide more than the subscriber's customary 20-percent savings inasmuch as #50 will be a jumbo-sized magazine with a cover price of $19.95 or more. (I'm already thinking about the last issue's contents, because I expect to go out with a bang.) The five-for-$50 deal will also extend to those who decide to subscribe for the first time before issue #46—Fall 2015—is published this coming November. At that time I will stop offering subscriptions and the last few issues will be available only on a single-copy basis at the cover price of $12.50 postpaid. So if you want the discount enjoyed by subscribers, this is your last opportunity to get it. I've just revised the site's Subscription page to conform with this change of policy.

The cessation of publishing on a quarterly basis (more or less) doesn't mean Blood 'n' Thunder is going away. It will continue as a series of irregularly published books—each running to 200 pages or more—that will include collections of essays grouped by theme. My plan is to publish at least two of these per year, timed for release in Spring at the Windy City convention and in Summer at PulpFest. There might be a third volume each year, depending upon my schedule. Of course, I'll continue to publish the Classic Pulp Reprints series and other Murania Press books.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press

This issue of Blood ‘n’ Thunder is highlighted by the first part of an extended survey of Famous Fantastic Mysteries, a forgotten pulp magazine that reprinted classic early stories of science fiction.
Old-Time Radio authority Martin Grams offers a history of the long-forgotten King Kong radio serial, complete with lengthy script excerpts.
Popular-fiction scholar Rick Lai presents another of his Wold Newton-ish excursions into literary lineage, this one concentrating on Robert E. Howard’s Bran Mak Morn.
David Smith trains a spotlight on Pistol Pete Rice, hero of Street & Smith’s Western pulps.
Film critic Glenn Kelly pens an appreciation of the screen’s first super-villain, the legendary Fantomas.
The basic but sad history of nickel-priced pulps is the subject of an article by veteran fictioneer James W. Egan.
BnT editor Ed Hulse reports on the 1937 cliffhanger serial Radio Patrol.
Finally, this issue reprints the long-forgotten first adventure of The Hornet, a 1934 character invented by Samuel Merwin.

Like every issue of BnT, the Summer 2015 issue is more than a hundred pages long and boasts dozens of illustrations, including reproductions of rare movie stills and original pulp art.


Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press
By William Corcoran

Now available for pre-order; shipping begins next week!

This wildly melodramatic thriller, originally published in the August 1933 issue of Dime Mystery Magazine, provided the template for countless pulp-hero novels published during the Thirties. Depression-era readers craved outlandish menaces to take their minds off their troubles, and The Purple Eye was at the top of the list.
The Eye, maniacal criminal mastermind and leader of the ancient death cult known as the Brotherhood of Baktuun, terrorizes New York City with a series of high-profile murders accomplished by mysterious means. Seven million souls are at his mercy as his outrages mount in dizzying succession. The police, constrained by legal niceties and endless red tape, seem powerless to thwart his mad schemes. Enter Wayne Saxon, millionaire sportsman and world traveler, who devotes his life to running the Eye to earth. He works within the law when possible, but without it when necessary. Will he succeed? There’s a thrill on every page of this baffling mystery.
Shawn Danowski’s introduction, “The Pulp That Murder Built,” provides a history of Dime Mystery in its early, pre-weird menace phase.

Kindle edition (On sale October 14th)

Revere River seemed like a good idea. After that, everything went downhill—the population, which grew weary of the unrelenting snow; the avalanche that killed another chunk of the population; the economy, which relied on outlaws seeking solitude, and the annual gathering of bounty hunters to clear them out.

Now a slick shyster keeps the town in his hip pocket—but when lust overpowers greed, the town’s delicate existance will crack like ice.

Kindle edition (On sale October 14th)

Bold Venture presents Railroad Stories #2: The Legend of King Lawson by E.S. Dellinger! Five tales from Railroad Stories Magazine starring King Lawson! Written by an author who knew his trains first-hand!

"Washout!" ... "Mixed Orders" ... "Boomer Trails" ... "Landslide!" and "Snowed In" -- five hair-raising, heart-tugging stories following William "Kingsley" Lawson from gandy dancer to trainmaster, and then from riches to rags! Lawson turns his back on a harrowing accident, an unfaithful wife, a duplicitious friend, and follows the lonely Boomer Trail from town to town to train yard.

Can King return to the top of the railroad heap? Was he repsonsible for the tragic accident that cost hundreds their lives? Did his wife and former friend have relations behind his unsuspecting back? Or was it all a tragic misjudgment? How will they ever reconcile when floods, fires, snow drifts and shady con-men come between them?

Clive Cussler: THE PHAROH'S SECRET (The NUMA Files) - Coming November 17!
by Clive Cussler & Graham Brown

Kurt and Joe tangle with the most determined enemy they’ve ever encountered when a ruthless powerbroker schemes to build a new Egyptian empire as glorious as those of the Pharaohs. Part of his plan rests on the manipulation of a newly discovered aquifer beneath the Sahara, but an even more devastating weapon at his disposal may threaten the entire world: a plant extract known as the black mist, discovered in the City of the Dead and rumored to have the power to take life from the living and restore it to the dead.

With the balance of power in Africa and Europe on the verge of tipping, Kurt, Joe, and the rest of the NUMA team will have to fight to discover the truth behind the legends—but to do that, they have to confront in person the greatest legend of them all: Osiris, the ruler of the Egyptian underworld.

The Shadow in Review:
This weeks new Shadow review is
"Masters of Death" from the May 15, 1940 issue of The Shadow Magazine. 
Pulpgen-Online Pulps:   Now with over 1000 stories online!

"The Blackout Deaths" by Charles Larson from 10-STORY DETECTIVE, November, 1942
In the darkness of the blackout, an unknown murderer struck suddenly. And John Gabriel, chief air-raid warden in his sector, figured he had the clue that would trap the killer. But when light was restored, Gabriel saw that its beams pointed in another direction - to the path that would lead himself to the Death House door.
"Party Girl Murder" by Carl McK. Saunders from TEN DETECTIVE ACES, July, 1934
Featuring: Captain John Murdock
The party girl. Alive, she had a host of friends. But dead, she was alone. For no one wanted his name linked with hers. Men offered hard-boiled Captain John Murdock bribes to keep their names in the clear. Others called on him with guns. But John Murdock had a one-track mind. The track that rode killers to the electric chair.
"It's A Cinch!" by Jordan Cole from SECRET AGENT "X", November, 1934
Malthus tried to hire a hitman to kill an enemy, but made a slight mistake.

New on Famous (and forgotten) Fiction!

September 2015
Another story from the Harvard years of George Allan England, "The Divided Letter," a romance that originally appeared in the October, 1902 issue of The Harvard Illustrated Magazine.
Also, The first Sherlock Holmes short story (and the only appearance of Irene Adler) from the July, 1891 issue of The Strand, "A Scandal in Bohemia," including all the Sidney Paget illustrations and an introduction by Dan Neyer.

August 2015
A romantic adventure set in Morocco by A. J. Dawson, The Powder Play, as it appeared in the January, 1898 issue of Pearson’s Magazine (UK). 
Our presentation also includes the Warwick Goble illustrations, an introduction by Bob Gay and, as a part of the intro, a reprinting of an article that appeared in the
January, 1901 issue of The Bookman  that includes additional biographical information about Dawson not found in the usual sources.


Continuing our reprinting of the Harvard work of George Allan England, we present “Two-Fifty An Hour - A Tragedy in One Act”  that originally appeared in the February, 1902 issue of The Harvard Illustrated Magazine.

July 2015
In Writings
Expanding our selection of stories by Baroness Orczy, this month we introduce The Baroness Orczy Collection, which includes a biography of the Baroness and links to her stories all in one place.
And, to kick off our new addition, we have reprinted the Baroness's third published story, The Traitor --a story which seems to have never been reprinted and has nothing to do with the Scarlet Pimpernel.
Lastly, in our continuing reprinting of George Allan England, we have put together another selection from his Harvard years, Illustrations: 3 Short Works that were originally written while he was a student and, like with the Orczy story, have never been reprinted.

June 2015
In Writings
The first, and chronologically the last, Mowgli story, "In the Rukh" by Rudyard Kipling as it appeared in the June, 1896 issue of McClure's Magazine with illustrations by W. A. C. Page and dual introductions by Bob Gay and Dan Neyer.

May 2015
In Writings
Two new items for your reading pleasure:
The Output of Authors - Nineteen famous authors discuss (often with tongue in cheek) their working habits and writing speed in an article from the  April, 1897 issue of Pearson's Magazine (UK).
 The Downfall of Reginald Pym by George Allan England - Another story written while he was a student at Harvard that originally appeared in  the October, 1901 issue of The Harvard Illustrated Magazine. 

April 2015
Continuing our reprinting of the works of George Allan England, we present "The Battle of Woolly Field," England's second professional sale that is based on a Civil War incident.

March 2015
In Writings
We've added a new section to our Writings section: The Arthur Conan Doyle Collection.  Here, you will find all our reprintings of Doyle's works (with more to come), along with an added tidbit or two.

But, as they say in infomercials, there's more!
We've also added a suspense story by Doyle "The Brazilian Cat", a pastiche of Sherlock Holmes, "The Adventure of the Two Collaborators" that includes an introduction describing the background of the how the story came about, and an article/interview from the August, 1892 issue of THE STRAND MAGAZINE, "A Day with Dr. Conan Doyle": a bit of insight into Doyle's life including all the original photographs that appeared with the article.

February 2015
In Writings
Continuing our look at England's life and work, we present George Allan England: the Harvard Years by Bob Gay, an in-depth look at England's years as a student at Harvard, including a bibliography of his work for The Harvard Illustrated Magazine, links to stories England wrote while a student and an overview of his first published book, Underneath the Bough.

January 2015
In Writings
The 6th, and final tale of The Chronicles of Don Q., "How Don Q. Played a Three-Cornered Game" presented as it appeared in the December, 1903 issue of Pearson's Magazine, including the Stanley Wood illustrations. 
An introduction by Dan Neyer and the translation of all foreign words and phrases are included as an added bonus.

Famous (and forgotten) Fiction is a new site featuring familiar and obscure fiction along with articles, pictures and essays.  In the Writings section, we have fiction by H. C. Bailey (the first Reggie Fortune story), Carl Stephenson, Sinclair Lewis and a large selection of Kipling, including the complete Mowgli stories and "The Man Who Would Be King."  We've also added an article about Sleeman's An Account of Wolves Nurturing Children in Their Dens, that includes a complete reprinting of the work.

In Comics, there is an overview of Superman #205 ("The Man Who Destroyed Krypton!") and a look at a Steve Ditko illustrated story that bears a strong resemblance to a well-known story by Carl Stephenson.The Pictures section starts with a group of collectible (and some not so) items and is the first of 24 collections.

The site is hoping for subscribers to keep it going and future plans call for more stories, more articles and there are a number of novels  we also intend to add to the mix.
New material will be appearing on the last Friday of each month (which means we'll have more new stuff at the end of February). 
In a few month  s, we will also be offering ebooks: on the site (in PDF) and at Amazon and B&N in their proprietary formats.

Girasol Collectables

That dreaded moment has come and the Girasol Pulp Replicas project is complete.
No NEW Replicas will be added to the catalogue.
We will, for an as yet undetermined period, be keeping the existing catalogue available.
However, we may begin retiring the less-active Replicas at any time, so don't delay if there are any you're interested in!
Contact us before ordering large quantities to confirm availability.

All of the remaining issues shown below are available now.
We'd like to thank everybody that has supported the project over the years, and we hope that the Replicas continue to provide reading and research enjoyment for years to come.
We do not anticipate taking on any other pulp reprint projects at this time and our Pulp Cover Gallery project is our only active item at present.

Girasol accepts checks, International money orders, and Paypal as methods of payment.
Other than Replicas, please confirm availability first before ordering items such as pulp magazines or other books.
Paypal payments can be made to our regular info@girasolcollectables.com email address.

As always, these reprints are exact copies including the illustrations, ads, and back-up stories and have been printed on off-white paper, staple-bound and finished off with a high quality reproduction of the original cover.
The only thing missing is the smell (alas) and the flaking newsprint.

Email Girasol Collectables at: info@girasolcollectables.com.
A complete listing, along with other items such as books, fanzines and of course pulps, can be found on
the Girasol Collectables website at http://www.girasolcollectables.com/

The Watcher at the Door: The Early Kuttner, Volume Two
Now available for pre-order!

Edited by Stephen Haffner
Foreword by Robert A. Madle
Introduction by Dr. Garyn G. Roberts
Cover Art by Jon Arfstrom
700+ page Hardcover

Before his marriage to (and subsequent collaborations with) Catherine L. Moore, Henry Kuttner was a frequent contributor to the pulp magazines that specialized in the weird, supernatural, horror, and science fiction genre. Beginning in 1936, with the minor classic “The Graveyard Rats,” Kuttner launched a steady stream of short stories aimed at Weird Tales, Strange Stories, Thrilling Mystery, and others.

Writing for Weird Tales brought Kuttner into direct correspondence with that magazine’s premier contributor. H. P. Lovecraft. Kuttner set several stories in Lovecraft’s “Cthulhu Mythos” and two are presented in THE WATCHER AT THE DOOR: “Hydra” and “The Hunt.”

At this point in his still-young career, Kuttner had cracked the science fiction market and was steadily publishing in Thrilling Wonder Stories, Fantastic Adventures, Science Fiction, and made his first sale to the new prestigious fantasy magazine, UNKNOWN.

In the course of writing the stories collected in this volume, Kuttner married Catherine Lucille Moore on June 7, 1940 (in New York with artist Virgil Finlay as Best Man).
THE WATCHER AT THE DOOR is the second volume in a three-volume “Early Kuttner” set collecting many of Kuttner’s earliest stories, most of which have never been reprinted.

For those of you that missed on getting a copy of Volume One:
For a limited time, Haffner Press is offering the out-of-print TERROR IN THE HOUSE as a combo with preorders of THE WATCHER AT THE DOOR.
Take advantage of this great offer at the link below.

The Complete Ivy Frost
by Donald Wandrei

Cover Art by Raymond Swanland
Now available for pre-order!

It may come as a surprise to some that Donald Wandrei wrote more mysteries than all his horror, fantasy, and science fiction tales combined. This volume collects all eighteen adventures of Wandrei’s ratiocinative detective I.V. Frost, who is ably assisted by his beautiful and tough female assistant, Jean Moray. A scientist and inventor, Frost has his own approach to solving mysteries. Rather than following the usual hard-drinking, trench-coated style of many of his contemporaries, Frost’s strategy was to mix the logic of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes with the technology of Lester Dent’s Doc Savage. In 2000, D.H. Olson edited a volume published by Fedogan and Bremer collecting the first eight of Frost’s adventures. A second volume of the remaining 10 tales was promised but never materialized.

Once a Marine sniper, Quarry found a new home stateside with a group of contract killers. But some men aren’t made for taking orders—and when Quarry strikes off on his own, god help the man on the other side of his nine-millimeter...

Max Allan Collins
Cover art by Robert McGinnis


Putting his plan in motion to target other hitmen, Quarry follows one from steamy Florida to the sober Midwest. But this killer isn’t a man at all—she’s a sloe-eyed beauty, as dangerous in bed as she is deadly on the job. Has Quarry finally met his match?

Max Allan Collins

When the man he worked for abruptly exits the business, Quarry finds himself in the crosshairs as a rival tries to take over. But what does Quarry have that the new man wants? And how did the beautiful blonde in the swimming pool become a target?

Max Allan Collins

October's End
An Anthology of Halloween Tales

Summer has shed its kin by the time October comes to town. Frost is in the air, twilight lingers and the nights loom over the shortened days.
Nature displays the dying of the year with a explosion of color. The nights are darker and the stars are clearer.
Belief is, that the wall between the worlds is at it's thinnest during this season and on the 31st of October it's even possible to cross over in both directions.
We simultaneously hope and dread that we will catch a glimpse of or come in contact with the dead, undead, those who never lived, and the undying.
We all love Halloween. Of all nights of the year, Halloween is the one where we hope that the impossible can be made possible and unreal can become real.
It's the day where our deepest fears and wishes take on flesh. On Halloween our souls cry out "Scare us! Show us Fear! Makes us BELIEVE!"
We wear masks not to hide, for that is an illusion, but to reveal our true selves. It is the one day where we find the courage to laugh at Death.

The Coming of Conan Re-Read: “Xuthal of the Dusk”  - New!
Jerry Schneider Enterprises
Now available!


Lieutenant Gulliver Jones, U. S. N., arrived on Mars in a most unexpexected fashion and promptly found himself head-over-heels in adventure. For Mars was a planet of ruined cities, ancient peoples, copper-skinned swordsmen, and weird and awesome monsters. There was a princess to be rescued, a River of Death to be navigated, and a strange prophecy to be fulfilled.

Here is a long-lost classic of interplanetary adventure which some science-fiction experts think may have helped to inspire the immortal Edgar Rice Burroughs. Though by no means a Burroughs novel, everyone who has ever enjoyed a novel of Barsoom will find Edwin L. Arnold's Gulliver of Mars a special reading delight.

The Fiendish World of Sax Rohmer
Edited by Phil Baker & Antony Clayton
Now available!

Forever associated with his creation of evil genius Dr Fu Manchu, a Chinese super-criminal scheming to destroy Western civilisation, Sax Rohmer (1883-1959) was the king of pulp exotica. At the height of his fame Rohmer was one of the most popular writers on the planet, but now he is largely remembered for outrageous attitudes and lurid Chinaphobia. Lord of Strange Deaths approaches Rohmer with something more than routine disapproval, and instead brings out the complexity and historical significance of his work.

This is the first extended attempt to do justice to Rohmer, and it ranges across the spectrum of his output from music-hall writing to Theosophy. Contributors focus on subjects including Egyptology, 1890s decadence, Edwardian super-villains, graphic novels, cinema, the French Situationists, Chinese dragon ladies, and the Arabian Nights. The result is a testimony to the enduring fascination and relevance of Rohmer’s absurd, sinister and immensely atmospheric world.

Lovecraft's Southern Vacation: A Robert E. Howard LitCrit TriplePunchPack! - Now available!
by Brian Leno (Author), Don Herron (Introduction)

Lovecraft’s Southern Vacation collects the crème de la crème of Cimmerian Award-winning essayist Brian Leno’s Robert E. Howard criticism together for the first time under one set of covers, with an Introduction and Afterword by Don Herron.

The title essay rocked standard perceptions of a classic supernatural tale that everyone thought they knew inside and out — as Leno took Howard’s “Pigeons from Hell” and showed convincingly how it satirized the New England horror fiction of H. P. Lovecraft.

Then Leno took to the texts again to investigate one of the long-standing puzzles of Howard’s life: Did he or did he not see the 1933 film King Kong before his death in 1936?

And trust to Leno to come up with an unexpected source for Howard’s popular tale “The Frost-Giant’s Daughter,” featuring the Texan’s most famous creation, Conan the barbarian.

If you enjoy Howardian litcrit, Leno’s got the knack.

by Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson
Introductions by Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson and John Locke

Before he was a comic-book pioneer, Major Malcolm-Wheeler Nicholson wrote adventure tales for the great pulp magazines—and no run-of-the-mill pulp fiction was it. The Major served as a cavalry officer on the southwest border during the Mexican Revolution. While the First World War raged in Europe, he fought the Moro insurgency in the southern Philippines. Then followed his strangest assignment, conducting espionage in legendarily hostile Siberia. After the war he was stationed in Western Europe. These places became the settings for the majority of his hardboiled adventure stories. His use of authentic detail, combined with his superior storytelling ability, make his stories difficult to put down. You read one of the Major’s entrancing tales—and your imagination is transported back to those real places of danger and daring!

This inaugural collection of the Major’s fiction includes stories set in all four of his real-life arenas, originally published in top adventure pulps: Adventure, Argosy, The Popular Magazine. It is time for the Major to receive his due—as one of the genuine larger-than-life men of the pulps. Included is an in-depth introduction by Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson, the Major’s granddaughter.

“Yes, Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson is one of the very, very few people responsible for the birth of the comic book industry as the visionary founder of what we today call DC Comics. And, yes, Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson is one of the very, very few people responsible for giving the world Superman.”

Michael Uslan,
Executive Producer of all the Batman movies,
Comic book historian, and author of his memoir, The Boy Who Loved Batman.

“Not many adventure writers can claim to have based their stories on their own exploits. Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson could—and because of it, his evocations of heroism and combat have a believability and a personal depth unlike anything else in pulp fiction.”

Gerard Jones,
Author of Men of Tomorrow: Geeks, Gangsters and the Birth of the Comic Book.

Perils On Planet X is high adventure on alien worlds – classic space opera in the  Burroughs and Alex Raymond traditions, revived for a new millennium!
The adventure begins today at the link below!

Fall is almost upon us, and that means the annual NJ Pulp Adventurecon draws near--an afternoon of pawing through boxes of pulp magazines, vintage paperbacks, vintage movie memoribilia, golden age comics and more! (Just like it says in the banner, but we couldn't resist repeating ourselves!)

You'll find fifty tables of swell swag at this show -- last year Robert Gould, son of pulp artist John Fleming Gould, visited and brought several magnificent pieces of original artwork for display and sale. Brendan Faulkner had his usual extensive selection of vintage movies, some of which are so rare the actors and crew don't even remember them! Gary Lovisi, the leader at Gryphon Publishing and hand-on-the-crank at Paperback Parade magazine, had his usual fine publications, and John Gunnison of Adventure House had his usual extensive stock of vintage and rare pulp magazines. Mala Mastroberte, our favorite pin-up model, was present ... and that's good enough for us, but Mala also had a selection of photos, books, and photo postcards.

For more information, watch this page (and the other pages), and join our mailing list by using the link below. While you're signing up, you might even click the link for Bold Venture Press and take a gander at our pulp reprints and new, pulp-inspired fiction by authors like Richard A. Lupoff, Gary Lovisi, John Wooley, and others.

Pulp Magazines Project - Now online!

Publishing legends The Black Mask (1920), Weird Tales (1923), and Amazing Stories (1926) are considered so “extremely rare and valuable” that the U.S. Library of Congress houses its collection of 277 issues in Washington, D.C.’s Rare Book and Special Collections Division—along with the personal libraries of Presidents, medieval and Renaissance manuscripts, and one of only three known perfect copies of the Gutenberg Bible in existence. With its latest addition of 4 issues of The Black Mask (Aug. & Sept. 1920; Dec. 1921; and Apr. 1922), the Pulp Magazines Project has made all 3 classic titles available together—for the first time—in high-quality, cover-to-cover digital editions.

Also available at the Pulp Magazines Project, new issues of the iconic “weird menace” pulp, Dime Mystery Magazine (Apr. 1938 and Sept. 1946); Adventure (Jul. 1, 1928; feat. Walt Coburn’s “The Man Who Hated Himself”); Western Story (Jul. 27, 1940); Detective Story (May 1938; feat. Zorro-creator Johnston McCulley’s “Thubway Tham’s Thothial Thecurity”); and histories of both The Black Mask (E.R. Hagemann; UCLA) and Dime Mystery Magazine (Emily Sisler; University of West Florida).

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.

THE SAINT: SEASONS 1 & 2 - Coming October 13!

All 39 heavenly episodes from Season 1 & 2 of THE SAINT

Modern-day Robin Hood. Wealthy man of mystery. Debonair rogue. Call Simon Templar what you will, but never cross THE SAINT. A timeless figure of adventure since his creation by Leslie Charteris in 1928, The Saint has thrilled adventure aficionados with his exploits in a variety of media, including novels, movies, and radio—but nowhere was the dashing Mr. Templar more indelibly realized than in his 1960s television series, starring the perfectly cast Roger Moore in the title role.

Seasons One and Two of The Saint set the stage for what would become a six season run on television, and paved the way for the dashing Roger Moore to take on the role of an even more famous man of action later in his career. With guest starring appearances by such notables as Oliver Reed (Tommy, Gladiator), Academy Award-winning actress Julie Christie (Darling, Doctor Zhivago) and a pair of beauties from the spy classic Goldfinger (Honor Blackman and Shirley Eaton), The Saint is a wild and witty adventure that is every bit as fun and exciting today as it was when it first aired.
