Doug Ellis and Bob Garcia spread
the news at Windy City Pulp & Paperback Show this weekend about
their new summer project: THE ASTOUNDING ART OF HUBERT ROGERS.
They expect to be ready in September or so to launch

Rogers was the premier artist for ASTOUNDING in the
1930s, with covers for the sf classics, SLAN, GREY LENSMAN, FOUNDATION

If that wasn't enough, his covers also appeared on pulps
from ARGOSY to ADVENTURE.
The book is being produced with the cooperation of Rogers'
family, giving access to rare material such as photos, sketches,
prelims, proofs and original art, which should allow us to produce
a book that we hope you'll find astounding!

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania
By Ed Hulse
The Shadow, The Spider, The Avenger,
Doc Savage, The Black Bat, The Phantom
Detective — these swashbuckling
heroes of mid-20th-century pulp fiction all
had one thing in common: They fought crime
from outside the law, unhindered by red tape
and unmindful of such legal niceties as
due process. They fought with fists and guns, for the
most part hiding their true identities beneath outlandish
costume and grotesque disguises.
This collection of essays by distinguished
pulp-fiction aficionados chronicles
the era of single-character magazines
from offbeat angles and with keen insight. The
pieces herein analyze key stories and
characters while offering rare, behind-the-scenes
glimpses of authors and editors at work,
crafting and polishing the pulp-paper fever
dreams that enthralled millions of young readers
during the Great Depression, World War II, and
beyond. Ed Hulse, editor of Blood ‘n’ Thunder, the
award-winning journal of adventure, mystery and melodrama,
has assembled these affectionate essays
with loving care and a discerning eye for the high-water
marks in this phase of American popular culture.
This third volume of Blood ‘n’ Thunder
Presents, like its predecessors,
is profusely illustrated with pulp-magazine
covers and original artwork.

thrills and horrific villains in the tradition of H.P. Lovecraft and G-8
& His Battle Aces!
Out of the night explodes an engine of unimaginable fury, powered
by the drive to accumulate and hoard for the mere sake of possession
— a force that draws its strength from the perpetual motion of irreconcilable
imperatives engaged in timeless opposition; a beast that should be
a myth, but thrives on the nightmares that well out of the unconscious
when the unconscious is untethered from myth. The Mysteriarchs of
the Abyss have shackled and enslaved the primordial evil that has guarded
their hideous treasure troves for eons — a dragon of gargantuan proportions
with more destructive rage than the Great War itself!
Also features the short story "Zohar of the Jungle" by Stuart
To the world at large, The Twilight Patrol is a high-flying band
of scrappy patriots, ever alert for trouble and always willing to lend
a hand. To the sinister foes lurking behind the Axis horizon, they are
a force to be reckoned with in the onslaught against freedom. To their
fans, The Twilight Patrol is the bravest assortment of adventurers ever
brought together to confront the dark forces threatening our mortal realm.

Pursued for killing a judge, Conan found refuge
in extremis on a merchant ship. But shortly after setting sail, the Cimmerian
and his new companions face a threat: the pirates of the legendary Bêlit,

|Conan le Cimmérien - Le colosse
noir - Coming May 2!
Screenwriter Vincent Brugeas
Draftsman and Colorist Ronan Toulhoat
Based in the city of Khoraja, Conan tries his
luck serving Amalric's mercenaries. While waiting for the fight, he leads
a life of ordinary troop, drinking and frolicking in the taverns. Fate catches
up with him one night as he accidentally meets Yesmala, princess and regent
of the kingdom in person. She would have seen Conan in a dream: the gods have
designated him as the general who must lead his armies against the demonic
hordes of the wizard Nathok. As a private soldier, Conan the barbarian becomes
the only hope of an entire kingdom.
The authors of the remark Roy des Ribauds plunge us into a black and warlike
adventure imbued with witchcraft.
The trait of Ronan Toulhoat unfolds all its excess in the gigantism of
architectures and epic battles.

|Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.
By Lee Strong
Northern Russia, 1924: The Red Army is eliminating those
who resist the fledgling Soviet government. At The Battle of the Plutonian
Plain, the White Russian forces, aided by wily American Edgar Rice Burroughs,
do not fall, instead retreating into the dangers of Pellucidar. Comrade Trotsky,
the Soviet leader, sends his troops to hunt them down—and destroy them.
Illustrated by Douglas Klauba
Now available in hardcover!
Mikhail Kirillivitch Kirov, a young conscript caught up in this mad scheme,
is fascinated by this new world. Formerly a student anthropologist, he finds
Pellucidar’s Stone Age landscape and inhabitants a revelation—until he’s
grabbed by a mammoth Skal and flown back to its aerie to feed its giant offspring.
Thus begins Kirov’s astounding adventure in the Northern environs of Pellucidar,
rife with its incredible Paleolithic animal life, including Skals, Trals
and Dyals, tremendous birds with sharp talons and fierce beaks; Ryths, the
huge Stone Age cave bears whose claws can tear a man apart; and the vicious
Jaloks, hyaenodons whose wild packs slaughter their prey mercilessly. These
and other fantastic beasts stalk Kirov as he navigates the complex world of
Pellucidar’s most dangerous predator: Man.
To survive, Kirov must escape slavery from the Beautiful Ala and her mighty
Black Birdriders, foster a civil war, impress the natives with his “inventions,”
conquer the terrifying Pulka Horde, and become a warlord of several tribes
as they flee the Soviet invaders. It’s a tale in the grand tradition of Edgar
Rice Burroughs’ epic adventures at The Earth’s Core.
Lee Strong’s heart was captured by the dinosaurs found At the Earth’s
Core in 1962—he has been a Burroughs reader ever since. Lee also worked
for the US Department of Defense (DOD); changed international policy with
a single report; deployed to Kuwait; saved taxpayers $5 million; and reformed
the $2 billion DOD Personal Property Program. A Soldier of Poloda is Lee’s
first novel. He is currently working on two Pellucidar novels with more
to come. Lee’s motto: More Adventure ! More Excitement !! More Burroughs

born and raised in Chicago, and is a graduate of the American Academy of
Art. Doug's paintings have been included in the art annuals of Spectrum: The
Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, the Society of Illustrators, and Imagine
FX magazine. His painting, "Mercury Jack," exhibited in the Spectrum Show

Famous (and forgotten) Fiction!
Continuing our reprinting of Edmond Hamilton, we present
"The Atomic Conquerors," from the August, 1926 issue
of Weird Tales with the original title art and an introduction by Bob Gay.
Also, a bit of humor by the artist Stanley L. Wood, in an article entitled
“Authors—from an Artist's Standpoint,” wherein Wood demonstrates
that he had not only a very sharp wit, but also a gift for caricature, just
as it appeared in the March, 1904 issue of Pearson's Magazine (UK).
Since the flu season was a
bit rougher than normal this year, we thought it was a good time
to resurrect a short novel by Jack London, The Scarlet Plague, which tells of the end of civilization
due to a rather nasty disease.
We have reproduced all the Gordon Grant illustrations,
all the text and have thrown in an introduction by Bob Gay that
sets the novel in context.
A tale of
romance and piracy with a twist...The She Fiend (by an unknown author) gives us a female
pirate with all the cunning
and wiles of the Dragon Lady. Introduction
is by Dan Neyer.
month we present for your approval
the very first published story by F. Scott
Fitzgerald, "The Mystery of the Raymond Mortgage."
We have tried
to put together a "definitive" edition
of this early work and hope you enjoy it.
Introduction by Bob Gay.
Since the we are
in the midst of the holiday season,
we thought a Christmas offering might
be appreciated, and so we are happy to present
a story by
Bret Harte, "How Santa Claus Came to Simpson's Bar," just as it
appeared (with a few editorial interpolations)
in the March, 1872 issue of
The Atlantic Monthly. Introductory notes
are by Bob Gay.
Just in time for
Halloween, we present what is probably
the most popular story to appear in Weird
Tales, "The Night Wire" by H. F. Arnold.
Read it at night with the lights turned
Since we are now
in the season of Fall (and not wanting
to miss the chance for a pun), this month
we present Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's tale of
a famous fall, The Adventure of the Final Problem, just as it appeared
in the December, 1993 issue of The Strand
Magazine, including the illustrations
by Sidney Paget. An introduction
by Dan Neyer is also included and he makes
some interesting points about our current
perceptions of Professor Moriarty...
Also, if you are new to the site,
you might wish to read Dan's biography of Doyle and possibly peruse some of
our other Doyle stories.
We've added a new
Author Collection to FAFF, and are
pleased to present The Edmond Hamilton Collection.
Like our other Author Collections,
our initial offering begins with
a biography of Hamilton and we've also
included Hamilton's very first story,
The Monster God of Mamurath.
In the months to come, we will be adding
additional Hamilton stories to
the collection and will also be adding
more early science fiction by names
both famous and forgotten.
This month, we
present "The Jameson Satellite," direct from the pages of the
July, 1931 issue of Amazing Stories, along
with an introduction by Bob Gay.
Also, we have added another annotated
gallery of Bob's Stuff, with even more wonderment from Bob's boxes

Sea-Kings of Mars
The Skull Lives
Jerry Schneider Enterprises
By Walter Gibson
A "LIVING" MUMMY haunts Buff Brewster's every step
on the expedition seeking the lost tomb of Egypt's ancient Prince Reth.
Fighting time to find the treasure crypt de-signed by Pattak the Tomb Builder,
the archaeologists plead with the Egyptian government to postpone con-struction
of a dam which will flood the site. But time is not the only enemy of the
expedition. For Pattak himself- whose mummy is missing from a London museum-seemingly
has returned to life to oppose the violation of his masterwork!
The curator of the museum, determined to prove his the-ory that the "forgotten
Pharaoh" was banished from the Valley of Kings, arms Biff with a precious
golden scarab to guard him in the Valley of Ghosts.
Biff successfully braves the perils of the mummy's men-ace, only to find
himself challenged by worshippers of Thoth, an even older deity of the dead,
who supposedly lost the battle of the gods centuries ago.
Trapped by the duplicity of a friend, Biff uses ancient magic to extricate
himself and his companions, only to learn that it takes modern miracles to
keep the "mummy" from hoarding the treasure for himself alone!

The Spider #60 Audiobook
The City that Paid to Die
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
Deeper and deeper New York had
sunk in the grip of the Underworld monarch — until the law was licked at
last! But in that moment of desperation, Richard Wentworth, as the Spider,
resolved to fight the underworld with its own savage weapons. With New York’s
own police commissioner at his side, the Spider raised a fighting legion of
honest men sworn to take the law into their own hands!
While the Spider borrowed his black slouch hat and cloak from the already
thriving Shadow, the rest of the character was significantly different. The
Spider stories are all about action, emotional intensity, and pacing. Wentworth
himself is strongly emotional, plumbing the thrills of victory as readily,
and as deeply, as the depths of despair during his escapades. His long-suffering
fiancée, Nita van Sloan, is a worthy character in her own right,
though frequently relegated to the traditional role of hostage-bait. As
additional exotic spice, Wentworth maintains a Sikh manservant/warrior companion,
Ram Singh, as well as chauffeur Ronald Jackson, the sergeant from his old
army days. Rounding out the cast of characters is Commissioner of Police
Stanley Kirkpatrick, Wentworth’s staunch friend and the Spider’s greatest
adversary; Kirkpatrick himself lives in a state of constant angst for fear
that duty will one day force him to send his friend to the electric chair
as punishment for the Spider’s crimes. And indeed, that fear nearly becomes
fact on several occasions.
This thrilling Spider audiobook features acclaimed voice talent Nick Santa
Maria, who has made the Spider his own! The City that Paid to Die originally
published in The Spider magazine, September, 1938.

pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an
eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original
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. By 1937, Ace Magazines,
the same low-rent publisher who presented readers with Captain Hazzard,
Flying Aces and Western Aces, tried to enter the field with Eerie Stories.
Unfortunately, it didn't catch on with readers, only lasting one issue before
folding. This is that issue. Eerie Stories returns in these vintage pulp
tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

AND THE LION MAN & SYNTHETIC MEN OF MARS Dust-jackets
Tarzan and the Lion Man, Synthetic
Men of Mars covers
These newly released dust-jackets are as clean as possible.
TARZAN AND THE LION MAN has cover and spine art meticulously
redrawn with every line matching St. John's from a 1200ppi scan.
The dark gold on the cover contains bright flecks that simulate
the metallic ink on the 1934 edition.
This is reconstructed from the true first edition jacket, not
the more common jacket that was issued on the Grosset & Dunlap
reprint, the "red Tarzana" and subsequent ERB, Inc. reprints.
SYNTHETIC MEN OF MARS uses a scan of the original John Coleman
Burroughs painting on both cover and spine.
The original was smoke damaged in the 1953 fire but I've managed
to digitally clean it up while retaining the detail of the brushwork.

Robert E. Howard Days
June 8-9, 2018!
look forward to seeing you in June with
all new panels and guests, a couple
of extra-special surprise announcements and
all the traditional activities that happen every
year at Howard Days.
Robert E. Howard House
New Go Fund Me Project to excavate the Howard
House storm cellar!
In an effort to shed more light on Robert
E. Howard the man, Project Pride, the owners of the Robert E. Howard
House and Museum are partnering with the National Park Service (NPS)
and the Southeastern Archaeology Foundation (SEAF) to sponsor an
archaeological excavation at the house where Howard grew up, lived
and died, and wrote his powerful and influential fiction.
The Howard House was placed on the National
Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1994 and today it has been
restored to its period appearance in the 1930s. The Robert E.
Howard House and Museum is now a tourist destination for countless
fans from around the world who make the pilgrim to Cross Plains to
see the place where whole worlds were created in the mind of one man.
It is also the site for the annual gathering of fans known as Howard
Days on the second weekend in June.
At the Howard Days gathering in 2017, Floyd Carter,
Jr. who was a member of the family who purchased the home in
1970, told several Howard scholars and attendees about the presence
of a storm cellar behind the house that was now filled in and buried.
Carter suggested that there was a lot of material, possibly from
the Howards, buried in the cellar that might be recovered if it
were excavated. NPS archaeologist and Howard scholar Jeffrey Shanks
was present and talked with Mr. Carter at length about his memories
of the cellar. This led to discussions with Project Pride about the
possibility of a professional archaeological excavation to see what
could found. Because the Museum has only a handful of items from
the Howards, recovering any artifacts that date from the period when
Robert and his family lived there would add significantly to the collection.
In January, the Project Pride Board of Directors
approved Shanks's proposal for the NPS to uncover and excavate
the storm cellar, process and analyze the artifacts recovered,
and write the official report. The excavation will also be an educational
opportunity for the Cross Plains community and local schools to teach
about archaeology and the importance of preserving our shared cultural
Since the Howard House is on the National Register
of Historic Places and one of the missions of the National Park
Service is to provide technical assistance to NRHP sites, Shanks
was able to secure funding to cover the salary costs for himself and
another NPS archaeologist, Thadra Stanton, to carry out the project,
including excavation, artifact analysis, and report write-up -- a cost
of approximately $20,000. Project Pride and the Cross Plains community
will be donating lodging for the archaeological team as well as some supplies
and much-needed volunteer labor. Noted Howard experts from The Robert
E. Howard Foundation will be present to assist as well.
The remaining project costs are the travel expenses
for the team and salary for an NPS Archaeological Technician
to assist Shanks and Stanton. These costs are estimated at $3800.
Shanks approached the Southeastern Archaeology Foundation (SEAF),
a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation that assists and supports NPS
archaeological projects, to assist in securing the remaining needed
funds. In order to do so, SEAF has launched this GoFundMe crowd-sourcing
campaign to raise those funds.
This is where you come in! If you are fan of Robert
E. Howard and his stories or just support archaeology and cultural
resource preservation, we can use your financial assistance and
generosity. Because SEAF is a 501(c)3 any contribution you make is
tax deductible. We are offering several donation levels with different
gifts including the official project T-Shirt and copies of the forthcoming
archaeological report. You can even join the team in Cross Plains and
participate in the excavation!
NOTE: Any funds received in excess of the required
amount will be donated to Project Pride to help with their ongoing
costs in maintaining the the Robert E. Howard House and Museum.
