  1. BLOOD N THUNDER PRESENTS 1 Pride of the Pulps

    During the fifty years of the pulp era, these were the leaders--Adventure, Argosy, Blue Book, Short Stories, The Popular MagazineFamous Fantastic Mysteries and West. They were edited and packaged with loving care and consistently reflected the best that rough-paper magazines had to offer. American readers, ravenous for escapist entertainment, devoured them in weekly or monthly intervals. Here are six lengthy, in-depth surveys of these most prestigious, all-fiction magazines. Considerably revised and expanded from their original appearances in the award-winning journal Blood 'N' Thunder, these essays reflect scholarly devotion and fannish enthusiasm in equal measure.

    Assembled by Ed Hulse, co-editor of the best-selling The Art of the Pulps, from contributions by some of today's most distinguished pop-culture scholars and archeologists. Their lengthy, informative essays are profusely illustrated with pulp and book covers, interior artwork, rare photographs, and movie posters. And the works herein are entirely new to this volume. Hulse leads off with mystery writer Mary Roberts Rinehart's The Bat, which began life as a 1907 pulp yarn and over the next several decades was revived in books, movies, and even a hit Broadway play. More importantly, it influenced the creation of Batman by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. Learn More
  3. BLOOD N THUNDER PRESENTS 2  The Penny-a-Word Brigade

    Return with us to those halcyon days of yesteryear, when writers of pulp fiction made a precarious living--sweating out plot details, trying to make their hackneyed characters seem fresh, working insane hours — usually for just a penny a word. In this collection of articles from vintage writer's magazines, those journeymen scribes explain how—and why—they did it. Represented in these pages are pulp fiction's leading lights: Lester Dent, Frank Gruber, Frederick Davis, H. Bedford-Jones, Erle Stanley Gardner, and many more. Learn More

    When publisher Chenault & Gray produced the highly acclaimed Edgar Rice Burroughs 100-Year Chronology set, as a bonus kickstarter project they created this. They did three books in all, all with tiny print runs of not more than a couple hundred copies, of ERB's most iconic titles. Handsome hardcover in green cloth with silver embossed titles, no art inside but a fine re-use of a classic painting by Frank Frazetta, first done for his second series of ERB paperbacks, then as one of his famous posters. A great new presentation.
