The Thing’s Incredible! the Secret Origins of Weird Tales – John Locke

The Thing’s Incredible! is a sweeping revisionist history of the founding of Weird Tales, one of the most influential and entertaining pulp magazines of them all. Its first two years (1923-24) was a period of tumult and controversy unequalled in the pulps, before or since, an experience so painful to its creators that they immediately banished their memories to secrecy, their code of silence suppressing the story for almost a century. Here at last is the true saga, the unraveling of the many twisted threads which have bound the creation of Weird Tales in mystery. Who were Henneberger and Lansinger, the co-founders, and what circuitous chain of events brought about their doomed destiny? How did the first editor, the outspoken and uncontrollable Edwin Baird, become the wild man of the pulps? What dark secrets lay buried in second editor Farnsworth Wright’shaunted past that he never dared speak of? What was the significance of the constantly mutating “reorganization” that united two legends, world-famous magician Houdini and horror author H.P. Lovecraft, into a grand nexus of weird? How did Henneberger lose control of his slow-motion disaster of a magazine? And how did an all-out war behind the scenes lead to the long peace of the Wright years? This is the grand story of the challenges in establishing a radical, new magazine in the early 1920s–and not just any magazine, but the immortal Weird Tales.

The Complete Adventures of the Moon Man, Vol. 2: 1934

by Frederick C. Davis Introduction by Andrew Salmon One of the strangest pulp heroes is finally available from Altus Press! Created by pulp fiction legend Frederick C. Davis for the pages of the ultra-rare title, Ten Detective Aces, the Moon Man fought the forces of the underworld in 38 unforgettable tales. Volume 2 collects the next six stories from this series: “Silver Death,” “Mark of the Moon Man,” “Crimson Shackles,” “Blood Bargain,” “The Black Lash” and “The Murder Master.” And it includes an all-new introduction by Moon Man expert Andrew Salmon. From 1933–37 pulpsmith extraordinaire Frederick C. Davis chronicled the adventures of the classic pulp hero the Moon Man in the pages of Ten Detective Aces. One of the most unique and compelling characters in the history of the genre, the Moon Man was the Robin Hood of the pulps: He stole from those who profited from the misery of the Depression to help those in need, to balance the scales of justice. And justice was close to the Moon Man’s heart. For the Moon Man was actually police detective Stephen Thatcher—a dedicated law officer all too familiar with the cracks in the system criminals used to avoid retribution. Donning a black robe and a globe of Argus glass, Thatcher became the Moon Man, a thief who stole from criminals the law could not touch. Now the Moon Man is hunted by his best friend and partner, reviled by his father and fiancé who all want to see the masked thief pay the ultimate price for his crimes. Stephen Thatcher must walk the razor’s edge of his double life where, every minute, the threat of exposure could shatter his fragile world.
  • Silver Death: “The Moon Man must die!” Those bitter words dropped from the lips of the Moon Man himself. For the ultimatum came down from the Board of Police Commissioners to get the notorious Moon Man—or go! Facing the disgrace of dishonorable discharge was the fine old police chief—the Moon Man’s own father. Also, facing discharge was Lt. McEwen, father of the girl the Moon Man wanted to marry. “The Moon Man must die!”
  • Mark of the Moon Man: The notorious Moon Man was dead—officially. He had faked his death to save his father—the police chief—and the father of his girl from the disgrace of dishonorable discharge. But now the Moon Man had to come back. Some tremendous power was forcing him to forget the chief, forget Lieutenant McEwen, and forget the girl he loved. Some power was compelling him to play the role of the lowest of two-legged rats. And the first step of that path was marked by a dying man whose jaws were locked on a horrible secret.
  • Crimson Shackles: Detective Sergeant Steve Thatcher was captured by a masked band. And Steve Thatcher’s buried secret was ruthlessly dragged from its shallow grave. For Steve Thatcher was the Moon Man—the notorious criminal who robbed the rich. Secundus, leader of the masked Red Five, fettered the Moon Man with sinister shackles. And to forever seal those shackles, Secundus brought a surprise to the Moon Man. That surprise enmeshed the Moon Man in a web from which there was no escape.
  • Blood Bargain: The Moon Man was on a double spot. He not only faced disastrous exposure—but was forced to watch his sweetheart steal like a common thief. He watched Sue McEwen, daughter of a police lieutenant, take active part in an amazing robbery. But the Moon Man could do nothing. For he had been forced to lead that raid. And Secundus, master of the infamous Red Four, tightened his grip on the Moon Man.
  • The Black Lash: A miasma of mystery oozed from the tarmac of Great City’s airport. The Secretary of the Chamber of Commerce had chartered a plane. He was a feverishly impatient man, and his face had a strange look—as if he were grinning at an open grave. When that plane went up, the lid blew off Great City. A maelstrom of murder engulfed Detective McEwen. And that most famous of the infamous, the Moon Man, flung the gauntlet of defiance at the dread Crimson Trio.
  • The Murder Master: Sue McEwen’s gun killed a man. Her own father, Lieutenant McEwen, arrested her—for murder. Then he moved heaven and earth to prove her innocence. But he was helpless against the cleverness of the murderer. Even the man she loved, Detective Sergeant Steve Thatcher, was powerless to help her. But the Moon Man—that famous of infamous prowlers—championed her cause against the Murder Master.
For the first time in decades all 38 of the Moon Man’s exploits have been collected by Altus Press in a seven-volume set.

The Complete Adventures of the Moon Man, Volume 2: 1934 by Frederick C. Davis contains the following stories:

  • “Silver Death”
  • “Mark of the Moon Man”
  • “Crimson Shackles”
  • “Blood Bargain”
  • “The Black Lash”
  • “The Murder Master”

Davis for the pages of the ultra-rare title, Ten Detective Aces, the Moon Man fought the forces of the underworld in 38 unforgettable tales. Volume 3 collects the next six stories from this series: “Moon Doom,” “Calling Car 13!,” “Fingers of Fear,” “Corpse’s Alibi,” “The Sinister Snatch” and “Badge of Blood.” And it includes an all-new introduction by Moon Man expert Andrew Salmon. From 1933–37 pulpsmith extraordinaire Frederick C. Davis chronicled the adventures of the classic pulp hero the Moon Man in the pages of Ten Detective Aces. One of the most unique and compelling characters in the history of the genre, the pulp superhero Moon Man was the Robin Hood of the pulps: He stole from those who profited from the misery of the Depression to help those in need, to balance the scales of justice.

Stephen Thatcher must walk the razor’s edge of his double life where, every minute, the threat of exposure could shatter his fragile world. For the first time in decades all 38 of the Moon Man’s exploits have been collected by Altus Press in a seven-volume set.
  • Moon Doom: The Rattler, a vicious killer, lays his crimes at the feet of the Moon Man. And the Moon Man is hunted by the entire police force. “Get the murderous Moon Man!” is the cry. Detective Sergeant Thatcher—the Moon Man—finds himself on a hot spot. And the spot gets hotter when the phone sergeant at headquarters hears that unguarded whisper creeping in over the wire. A whisper that brands Steve Thatcher as the Moon Man.
  • “Calling Car 13!” Ripping the night air came that fatal message to a fatal car—“Calling Car 13!” And it plunged Great City into a mad whirl of murder. For that prowl car was riding to the hideout of Ned Dargan, the notorious Moon Man’s assistant. Black powder scorched red blood. And Lieutenant McEwen cornered the Moon Man.
  • Fingers of Fear: Dicks die hard! Gil McEwen, ace sleuth of Great City, gets kicked off the force for failing to bring in the Moon Man. Gil McEwen, whose very life’s breath is the police department, is forced to turn in his shield… and Detective Sergeant Steve Thatcher—the notorious Moon Man—has to get Gil McEwen back on the cops—without exposing himself.
  • Corpse’s Alibi: The spectacular race track robbery told Lieutenant McEwen that the notorious Moon Man was a member of the police force. The Moon Man, who risked discovery and death to help the needy, was trapped by his own thumb-print. For the Moon Man was Detective Sergeant Steve Thatcher. McEwen threw a cordon around headquarters, from which there was no escape. Trapped, helpless, Steve Thatcher watched McEwen go for the file that recorded the fingerprints of every man in the department.
  • The Sinister Snatch: The black shadow of a threatened kidnaping hung over the family of a wealthy newspaper publisher. Lieutenant Gilbert McEwen and the pick of the police department were on the job. Into this tense drama came a third power—the notorious Moon Man. He warned the kidnapers to lay off. The kidnapers laughed at him. McEwen swore at him. But the Moon Man—that enigma of enigmas—had never failed to keep a promise.
  • Badge of Blood: The notorious Moon Man had the goods on a crooked cop, had him dead to rights. But that crooked cop also had a trump card to play in the game of death. He knew that the Moon Man was Detective Sergeant Steve Thatcher. He drove the Moon Man to a hard bargain—a bargain that made a cop wear the Badge of Blood.

The Complete Adventures of the Moon Man, Volume 3: 1934 by Frederick C. Davis contains the following stories:

  • “Moon Doom”
  • “Calling Car 13!”
  • “Fingers of Fear”

 Secret Agent “X” Audiobook #14

Talons of Terror
by Emile C. Tepperman writing as Brant House
Read by Milton Bagby
A nameless mystery man with a wartime past, backed by a shadowy group of powerful philanthropists, Secret Agent “X” took on the toughest assignments of the dirty thirties. Operating out of the half-haunted Montgomery Mansion, X was also known as the Man of a Thousand Faces.
In ten days there were ten murders. Bestial terror talons ripped the heart and soul from a city—as they ripped life from its civic monarchs. And in the funeral wake of these awesome claws lay the dried, bloodless husks of what once were men. The Grim Reaper stalked the city with a handful of horror. Alone, bucking this mad march to the grave, was Secret Agent “X”—the Man of a Thousand Faces. Countless times had “X” manhunted murderers. But never before had his trail carried him up a corpse-runged ladder of human husks.
The enigma of enigmas, Secret Agent “X” has been deputized by a high government official to battle the darkest, most diabolical enemies of America before they sink their poisonous fangs into the nation’s healthy core. Operating out of the supposedly haunted Montgomery Mansion, Secret Agent “X” ventures forth in a bewildering array of false identities to infiltrate the darkest underbelly of the underworld—and destroy it from within. A master investigator of a thousand guises and surprises. The only clue to his true identity is his haunting whistle…..
Though Paul Chadwick was the creator and architect of the weird menace series that Secret Agent “X” would be, other well known Pulp writers also added their own contributions to the canon. All writing under the “Brant House name”, G. T. Fleming-Roberts, Emile C. Tepperman, and Wayne Rogers wrote Secret Agent “X” tales as well over the 41 story run.
Follow the Man of a Thousand Faces as he confronts the menace of Talons of Terror, ripped from Secret Agent “X” magazine, April 1935 and read with chilling intensity by Milton Bagby.

Secret Agent “X” Audiobook #13

Devils of Darkness
by Paul Chadwick writing as Brant House
Read by Milton Bagby
They called Secret Agent “X”, the Man of the Thousand Faces. Armed with his irresistible gas gun, wearing impenetrable disguises, “X” infiltrates the darkest corners of the Underworld to crush all crime czars!
Black as night, black as hell itself, the “devil-dark” descended upon a fear-crazed populace! Men and women shrieked in agony beneath the lash of bloody, torturing whips. The mangled bodies of innocent children lay in the streets, while human fiends emptied the city of its wealth. And into this chaotic and hideous fog of darkness went Secret Agent “X” to wage a life-and-death battle with unseen criminals.
The enigma of enigmas, Secret Agent “X” has been deputized by a high government official to battle the darkest, most diabolical enemies of America before they sink their poisonous fangs into the nation’s healthy core.
At the end of the Depression year of 1933, tiny Magazine Publishers could see which way the pulp winds were blowing. Street & Smith had broken new ground when they launched The Shadow Magazine in 1931. Doc Savage came two years later. As did The Phantom Detective. In the Fall of ’33 Popular Publications released both The Spider and G-8 and His Battle Aces. The public was obviously hungry for heroes. And editor Rose Wyn decided that her outfit had to offer one too! With top writer Paul Chadwick, she brainstormed Secret Agent “X”, uncanny composite of Doc and The Shadow, with a dash of the Phantom thrown in. The first issue appeared at the end of 1933 with a February 1934 cover date. Coincidentally, the popular King Features newspaper strip, Secret Agent X-9, debuted that same month! But for that hyphenated X, lawsuits might have shut down one or the other hero.
Follow the Man of a Thousand Faces as he confronts the menace of Devils of Darkness, ripped from the pages of Secret Agent “X”magazine, March 1935 and read with chilling intensity by Milton Bagby.

The Secret 6 Audiobook #4

The Golden Alligator
by Robert J. Hogan
Read by Michael C. Gwynne
Popular Publications publisher Harry Steeger and writer Robert J. Hogan had scored a hit with G-8 and His Battles Aces in 1933. A year later, they put their heads together and concocted a crime series with a fantasy flare. They called it The Secret 6!
Steeger always credited the successful Park Avenue Hunt Club stories running in the pages of Detective Fiction Weekly as his main inspiration. But the types of stories he asked Robert J. Hogan to write smacked of the one and only Doc Savage. In a sense, The Secret 6 was Doc Savage and his men—but without the superhuman aspects of Doc. The title was lifted from a 1931 crime film. To insure that the first issue sold like hotcakes, they stole a little more of Street & Smith’s thunder by titling that debut novel The Red Shadow.
The premise was simple. Framed for the crimes of diabolical Red Shadow, a mystery man with a haunted past calling himself King breaks out of the Death House. Scouring the Underworld, he assembles a team of shadowy specialists who dedicate themselves to hunting down The Red Shadow, which they did in their debut adventure.
Only four issues of The Secret 6 were ever published. But what a glorious run! The Red Shadow was followed by House of Walking Corpses, The Monster Murders and The Golden Alligator. Each succeeding novel was more fantastic than the one before. Collectively, they read like a dry run for Carleton E. Morse’s classic radio series, I Love a Mystery.
For his final Secret 6 opus, Robert Hogan took a new approach, emphasizing King, and relegating the other members of the fighting band to the background. Set in Florida, where the author resided for portions of his life, this is a treasure hunt on a grand scale, flavored by typical Popular Publications weirdness in the form of a giant alligator of unknown origins.
Will the Secret 6 survive this threat? Well, no. All the more reason to plunge in and enjoy the exciting quest for The Golden Alligator. Michael C. Gwynne narratives this swan song audiobook.
Chapter 1: Buried Alive Chapter 2: The Golden Death Chapter 3: Death Strikes Again Chapter 4: Pursuit Chapter 5: Wanted: An Honest Man Chapter 6: Six Honest Men Chapter 7: In the Hands of the Law Chapter 8: The Golden Alligator Chapter 9: Swallowed Alive Chapter 10: The Coffin Flight Chapter 11: Everglades City Chapter 12: John Ogden Chapter 13: Ogden Alias Smith Chapter 14: Murder Dirge Chapter 15: Alligator Toll Chapter 16: The Golden Doom

The Secret 6 Audiobook #3

The Monster Murders
by Robert J. Hogan
Read by Michael C. Gwynne
The premise of The Secret 6 was deceptively simple, yet pure pulp. An enigmatic adventurer known only as King busts out of Death Row to form an anti-crime group called The Secret 6. The others include The Key, The Doctor, Shakespeare, The Bishop, and Luga, as well as numerous underworld stool pigeons and hangers-on. All are wanted. So they operate outside the law.
The work of the wildly imaginative Robert J. Hogan, who pitted his World War I flying ace, G-8, against zombies, Martians, defrosted Viking warriors, and other bizarre foes, The Secret 6 battled sinister supervillains, a Mayan Bat-Man, a giant golden alligator and other outrageous menaces. Few pulp series stretched reality as did this four-issue Popular Publications title from 1934-35. There were no limits. That’s what made it a terrific read.
If you wanted to, you could call The Secret 6 “Doc Savage lite”. The series followed a similar template––a group of adventurers pitting themselves against overwhelming threats. The big difference was that the leader, King, was no superman. Like Hogan’s G-8, he was a typical American he-man, not a fearless wonder-worker. King could feel fear, and make mistakes. He was not perfect, therefore the average reader could identify with him, and see himself in King’s shoes.
The third Secret 6 entry shows every indication of having been inspired by the famous Doc Savage novel, The Monsters. The premise is virtually identical––giant creatures are terrorizing the rural population. Authorities are helpless. Only the resourceful Secret 6 team is up to the challenge.
No doubt the inspiration for both of these pulp classics goes back to the 1933 film, King Kong. In The Monster Murders, we encounter ferocious packs of gigantic dogs, 30 foot giants, and other towering nightmare threats to life and liberty.
The Murder Monsters is read by Michael C. Gwynne.

DOC SAVAGE Volume 46:

House of Walking Corpses
by Robert J. Hogan
Read by Michael C. Gwynne
Popular Publications publisher Harry Steeger and writer Robert J. Hogan had scored a hit with G-8 and His Battle Aces in 1933. A year later, they put their heads together and concocted a crime-suspense series with a fantasy flare. They called it The Secret 6!
The premise was simple. Framed for the crimes of the diabolical Red Shadow, a mystery man with a haunted past calling himself King breaks out of the Death House. Scouring the Underworld, King assembles a team of shadowy specialists who dedicate themselves to hunting down The Red Shadow. Once he was disposed of, the super-sleuth sextet went on the tackle malevolent menaces in the I Love a Mystery vein.
This new crime-busting organization consisted of King, The Doctor, The Professor, The Key, The Bishop, Shakespeare and the Zulu warrior known as Luga. They are backed by a small army of unsavory underworld informers ranging from Legs Larkin to Flo the Fleecer.
Only four issues of The Secret 6 were ever published. But what a glorious run! The Red Shadow was followed by House of Walking Corpses, The Monster Murders and The Golden Alligator. Each succeeding novel was more fantastic than the one before.
For their second exploit, The Secret 6 go up against a Mayan curse that turns members of the wealthy Waldorff clan into Living Dead Men. But that’s only the start of the wild trail that takes the fighting 6 from Long Island to the Mayan-dominated jungles of Yucatan and a rousing battle with the sinister Bat-Man and his undead legions at the Temple of Azrah. Will The Secret 6 triumph––or will Mayan vengeance make it their tomb?
House of Walking Corpses is narrated with appropriately atmospheric gravity by Michael C. Gwynne.

One major clue can be found in a list of the members of this new crime-busting organization: King, The Doctor, The Professor, The Key, The Bishop, Shakespeare and Luga. Yes. Seven men have banded together to become the fearless fugitives operating outside the law known as—The Secret 6! One will not survive…

Green Lama Audiobook #7

The Hollywood Ghost & The Beardless Corpse
by Kendell Foster Crossen writing as Richard Foster
Read by James C. Lewis
With this seventh Green Lama audiobook, we come to the climax of the original adventures of millionaire Jethro Dumont, who journeyed to the mountains of Tibet and came back on a mission to erase evil from the face of the earth as the first Buddhist superhero, The Green Lama!
The Green Lama often visited tinsel town, which he does once more in The Case of the Hollywood Ghost. Bloody footprints left by no visible being leave a scene of murder, but where will they take the investigation? Only The Green Lama Knows.
Written during a vogue of invisible men movies––Universal released The Invisible Man Returns and The Invisible Woman in 1940––this entry focuses on a similar production, The Man from Nowhere. When the busy set is bedeviled by the imaginary lead villain, an uncatchable killer calling himself the Hollywood Ghost, Jethro Dumont takes a hand in the game in this sequel to his earlier Hollywood triumphs, Babies for Sale and The Wave of Death.
The Case of the Beardless Corpse marked the ultimate Green Lama exploit penned by creator Kendell Foster Crossen writing as Richard Foster. Although Crossen continued his jade-robed hero in comic books and on radio, he never wrote another novelette. But The Lama went out in style, investigating the bizarre circumstances surrounding the slaying of a high-ranking German diplomat––whose face was shaved by his mysterious murderer after death. Working from that baffling clue, The Green Lama follows a trail of blood to a satisfying conclusion, assisted by his surviving circle of followers, which included magician Theodor Harrin and the ever-mysterious Lady from Lhasa, Magga.
James C. Lewis reads the swan song of the strangest pulp superhero ever imagined…Om Mani Padme Hum! The Green Lama Knows!
