SPANISH FIGHT PULPS!

SPANISH FIGHT PULPS!

Fight Fictioner and Fight Card fan Gonzalo Baeza forwarded me some great covers of Spanish fight pulps from the late ‘30s and early ‘40s, part of the First Novel Series Sports originally published in Argentina. There were 44 different titles, 16 published in Spain, featuring all different sports, including boxing. The tales are written by Joseph Mallorquí Figuerola, better known for his Zorro-like westerns featuring The Coyote.

HARDBOILED CORNER: ENAMORED!

O’NEIL DE NOUX

A NEW ORLEANS CRIME NOVEL

LUCIEN CAYE IS MY FAVORITE NEW ORLEANS PRIVATE EYE – HELL, HE’S MY FAVORITE PRIVATE EYE PERID. I’VE DEVOURED ALL OF THE PREVIOUS LUCIEN CAYE 21 AWARD WINNING SHORT STORIES AND CAN’T WAIT TO DIG INTO THIS FIRST NOVEL LENGTH CASE …

She crossed Canal Street from the neutral ground, walked right past me and I watched her come and go, both views unforgettable. I’m not kidding. A woman can do that on occasion, sear an indelible image in a man’s mind.

She was the woman in gray. That’s how I thought of her the following days as she popped in and out of my mind, tapping me on the shoulder over coffee, whispering in my ear, “I was real.” I didn’t obsess over her image. It just came and went, more like a photograph than a motion picture, although she had moved quite nicely. She remained a snapshot, the woman in gray, until a week later when she stepped from the darkness beneath the balcony of my building shortly after midnight, on a sultry Thursday night –

Thus begins the most elusive case in New Orleans private eye Lucien Caye’s career, a case of obsession and murder, a case that will baffle him, intrigue him, make him fall in love – three times. The case of a desirable woman enamored of a undesirable man defies understanding, yet the human heart rarely listens to the human brain. A smart guy like Lucien should know better, but his mind has trouble controlling his libido, much less his heart.

THE BLACK BAT #1: BRAND OF THE BLACK BAT

Doomed to darkness by a murder monger, the Black Bat makes darkness his weapon -- and a Mysterious Avenger is born! The foul, ruthless rule of a Lord of Crime, striking terror to a city, calls for the daring and swift justice of Tony Quinn. The Black Bat was the featured story in Black Book Detective magazine beginning in July of 1939, and running through 1953. Blinded former District Attorney Anthony Quinn was the costumed crusader who regained his sight to an amazing extent: he could now see in the dark. With super hearing, an enanced sense of touch and smell, he battled the dark underbelly of crimedom. Around him he gathered a small band of aides, Carol Baldwin, daughter of a small-town policeman, Butch O'Leary, none too bright, but a staunch battler, and Silk Kirby, an ex-crook, now Quinn's valet.

OPERATOR 5 #2: THE INVISIBLE EMPIRE

Unseen, impregnable, the strange war engine of a foreign power hovered over America, waiting the fatal moment to hurl death upon a thousand cities and towns. Foredoomed to destruction and desolation before the ravaging hordes of the Yellow Empire, bleak despair gripped the nation’s millions. And then men held their breath in agonizing hope — as Operator 5, single-handed, seized the last grim chance to save the United States! As a special Bonus, Will Murray has written an introduction especially for this series of Operator #5 eBooks.

SECRET AGENT "X" #1: THE TORTURE TRUST

Men with skulls for faces — these were the victims of that terrible trio who met in a hidden room. And Secret Agent "X" went against them, daring the bottled torment of their deaf-mute slaves, in a desperate battle of wits at the gateway of destruction! From 1934 to 1939 America thrilled to the adventures of Secret Agent "X" — the "man of a thousand faces" — as he battled futuristic weapons and mad scientists. The true identity of Secret Agent "X" was never revealed. He used his mastery of disguise to work undercover for the U.S. government. With his aide, newspaper reporter Betty Dale, and his secretive government handler K-9, he battled weird and fantastical threats to America for forty-one amazing issues.

Stay tuned, Pulp fans, for the best in Pulp eBooks from Will Murray’s Pulp Classics!

JAMES REASONER WEIGHS IN ON THE LATEST FIGHT CARD NOVEL . . .

…There's a strong thread of decency and humanity that runs through all of Dundee's work, and it's certainly present here. Danny Dugronski is a fine hero, a strong man who won't let obstacles get in the way of him doing what he thinks is right. There's also plenty of action, as Counterpunch opens and closes with a pair of epic battles in the ring. If you haven't sampled the FIGHT CARD series yet, this one is an excellent place to start, and if you've read and enjoyed the others, don't hesitate to grab this one, too. I had a great time reading it …

FIGHT CARD: COUNTERPUNCH ~ AVAILABLE NOW!

FIGHT CARD: COUNTERPUNCH ~ AVAILABLE NOW!

THE LATEST FIGHT CARD NOVEL, COUNTERPUNCH, FROM HARDBOILED AUTHOR WAYNE D. DUNDEE WRITING AS JACK TUNNEY ...

Danny Dugronski has been a fighter all his life.

As an orphan at St. Vincent's Asylum for Boys, he first learned the "sweet science" of boxing from Father Tim, the battling priest. Then the Marine Corps taught him far more lethal fighting tactics before shipping him off to do battle in the hell of the South Pacific.

Now, with World War II over, Danny "The Duke" has returned home and earned a respectable ranking as a regional heavyweight in the Milwaukee area. But his record, free of KO losses, is jeopardized by a mob front man who tries to push him into a series of rigged fights.

When Danny refuses, hard push comes to deadly shove, and he must call upon all his fighting skills to stand his ground. And when Danny comes out swinging, he’s determined to put the mob down for the count.

COMING SOON!
