PULP NOW: THE BEST OF BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER!

PULP NOW: THE BEST OF BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER!

A MUST HAVE FOR PULP FANS  . . .

Selections from the Premier Journal of Adventure, Mystery and Melodrama in American Popular Culture.

Since 2002, Blood ‘n’ Thunder has explored American popular culture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries as manifested in the era’s popular fiction—dime novels, story papers, nickel weeklies, pulp magazines—and such derivative storytelling vehicles as stage melodramas, motion pictures, and Old Time Radio programs.

Blood ‘n’ Thunder’s readers include not only veteran fans and collectors of such material, but also newly interested hobbyists born decades after the heyday of pulps and related narrative forms.

This 340-page book collects the finest articles and reviews that appeared in Blood ‘n’ Thunder’s long-out-of-print first ten issues—over 125,000 words of history, biography, and commentary, impeccably researched and lovingly presented by devotees for devotees. It’s a one-volume encyclopedia for aficionados of vintage adventure, mystery and melodrama.

PULP NOW: SGT.JANUS – SPIRIT BREAKER!

PULP NOW: SGT.JANUS – SPIRIT BREAKER!

NEW FROM AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS - NOW AVAILABLE!

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the debut of the newest occult investigator in the grand tradition as such notable pulp heroes as William Hodgson Hope’s Carnacki, Seabury Quinn’s Jules de Grandin, Manly Wade Wellman’s John Thunstone and the popular Ravenwood, Stepson of Mystery.

Situated in the rural back country of Edwardian England is an old, mysterious house whose unique owner earns his living as a Spirit-Breaker, a hunter of ghosts. A former military veteran, Sgt.Roman Janus has devoted his life to aid those haunted, both emotionally and physically by obsessive wraiths whose spirits are still anchored to our world.

Sgt.Janus – Spirit Breaker is the creation of new pulp writer Jim Beard. Part detective, part occultist, Janus is himself a man of mystery whose own past is shrouded and the motivations behind his calling kept hidden. Within this volume you will find eight tales as narrated by his clients, each with his or her own perspective on this uncanny hero and his amazing career. Filled with suspense, terror and agonizing pathos, each a solid mesmerizing journey into the unknown world beyond.

Featuring a cover by artist Jeff Herndon and eight stunning illustrations by Eric Johns, with design work by Pulp Factory Award winning Art Director, Rob Davis and edited by Managing Editor Ron Fortier, Sgt.Janus – Spirit Breaker is the first in a new series by one of today’s leading stars in New Pulp Fiction.

"... Beard’s fiction is anything but pat and routine. While he may deliberately conjure the spirits of authors of Victorian and Edwardian occult fiction before him, Beard’s prose is fresh and entirely modern in his, at times, frank and unsettling tales of the wages of his characters’ past sins. Each story breezes by and like the best tales told round the campfire, it leaves the reader hungry for more.”

FIGHT CARD: KING OF THE OUTBACK

Outback Australia 1954

Two rival tent boxing troupes clash over a territorial dispute in the Outback town of Birdsville. In the sweltering heat, tensions simmer, tempers flare, and as things reach boiling point, a boxing tent is burned to the ground.

Fighting men know only one way to solve their disputes, and that’s in the ring. The solution, a show-down, smack-down, winner take all bout between the two rival outfits.

In the blue corner, representing ‘Walter Wheeler’s Boxing Sideshow’ is Tommy King, a young aboriginal boxer with a big heart and iron fists.

In the red corner, representing ‘Arnold Sanderson’s Boxing Show’, is ‘Jumpin’ Jack Douglas, a monstrous wrecking machine from the city – a man who’ll do anything to win.

The fight – brutal. In the world of Tent Boxing, in the harsh Australian Outback, weight divisions and rules don’t count for much. It’s a fight to decide, who is indeed, King of the Outback!
