2 in stock


The latest issue of Blood ‘n’ Thunder continues our survey of Famous Fantastic Mysteries, that most underrated pulp reprint magazine. Readers will also find extensive coverage of important vintage films: “Cliffhanger Classics” revisits The House Without a Key, the 1926 silent serial that introduced moviegoers to Charlie Chan, while “Pulp Page to Silver Screen” takes an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at three 1946 Monogram Pictures whodunits featuring The Shadow. Other department installments focus on such rare pulps as Detective Dragnet and Dime Mystery Book.

In other articles: Western yarns by Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan the Barbarian, are examined and defended by Howard scholar Morgan Holmes. Prolific novelist Will Murray contributes a piece on a proposed Street & Street hero pulp that was to have had a time-traveling protagonist and be edited by the legendary SF writer John W.Campbell.

The issue is rounded out by two portfolios; one features ads for 1930s Street & Smith pulps published in the company’s top-selling movie fan magazine Picture Play, the other reproduces rare pulp cover paintings scanned from the original art.
