The Devil to Pay / 1938 / In which Ellery Queen goes to Hollywood, and the murder victim is found pierced by a sword coated with molasses and cyanide.

Two decent sci-fi stories from 1951 written by the phoney occultist, false prophet and later cult leader L. Ron Hubbard. The header of the blurb on the back of this 1971 paperback seems to speak volumes about what it is like to be a member of his cult. Still, the graphic design of the pocketbook is cool 🧚‍♀️ #lronhubbard #scifi #scifipulp #pulp #vintagepaperbacks #vintagepulp #cults #fear #falseprophets #books #vintagebooks #bookdesign #pulpbookdesign #paperbackdesign #graphicdesign #scientology #scientologycult

Robert E Howard is one of my favourite authors. The Conan stories (and Solomon Kane stories!) are such fantastic reads. Time to reread some classic Howard! - P.s shout out to Frank Frazetta for his genre defining covers!

"The Sin Underneath" (1956) 🌺 She wanted a man. It had to be Robert. To her he was a beautiful, virile young animal, hardly more than a sweet-breathed boy. Hers for the taking, to teach, to show...

Tiger Mask 2049, a little concept I had in my brain of molding Batman Beyond and Tiger Mask. I got the idea of the suit from an old TV Show called Tiger Seven #bobbybronsonpulp .

Root of Evil / 1948 / “A TERRIFIC explosion wrecks the laboratory in which Karl Englund has been conducting secret experiments designed to revolutionize the drug industry. A body, charred beyond hope of identification, is found in the ruins. Is it the body of Englund?” — New York Times review, February 8, 1948

One of my orignal characters, Elexa Sixkiller, she’s a robot bounty hunter in my storyverse: Astounding Tales of the Arizona Space Ranger. #bobbybronsonpulp

BOXING YARNS no.1
Publisher: Gerald G. Swan Date: circa 1945-1946

Contains only 2 first-publication novelettes:

The Champion Breed by R. Gilmour
Ain’t Dames Hell by Frank W. Byrne

Gilmour sold one other known short to Swan entitled "Floating Hearse." One "G. M. Byrne" was a regular fixture with Swan from 1946-1950, but Frank only contributed once! Any relationship between the two? Possibly...and yet another existed in 1942 as Byron Byrne! Then again, maybe none are related... Most of Swan's side-stapled booklet publications were part of the assorted "shorts" series, and ran about 32 pages, double-columns, tiny print.

For some unfathomable reason, Swan decided against "Boxing Shorts" perhaps due to the obvious double entendres chuckle, but he DID title the second issue just that!

Sherlock Holmes Detective Stories / Date unknown / Conan Doyle’s first Sherlock Holmes story, “A Study in Scarlet,” was first purchased for £25 in November 1886, though not published for another year. It’s included in this grab-bag of Sherlock stories published by Books, Inc.

The 1934 April 28 [no. 12] issue of SCOOPS; this was the world's first all science fiction illustrated story paper to be published on newsprint.

This issue contains CATACLYSM by W. P. Cockroft, a science and weird fiction writer appearing on the scene.
WPC sold only one tale to the American pulps, late 1934.
#WPCockroft

The cover art illustration is signed lower left "E.P.K." but not sure as to their identity.
This aerial-craft resembles a child's oversized spinning "top" with rotor blades and water skis. Given the "humming horror" is outfitted with gun ports and hovering above circling battleships below, it all really makes sense. .

American Science Fiction Magazine (No.26, June 1954)
Publisher: Malian Press
Cover art by Stanley Pitt

Lead cover story is:
"The Ark of Mars" by Leigh Brackett with a filler tale by William Tenn.

This entire series of American pulp reprints in Australia are dynamite. Side-stapled booklets, double-column, about 36-pages, with original cover art all supplied by legendary Australian comic artist Stanley Pitt. Several issues in this run also represent a first paperback printing of various author novellas, filling out all pages sans any other author support. Other issues represent one author's collection of short stories. A grossly overlooked, undervalued series. . . .

"The Damned Lovely" (1954) Art by Robert Maguire 🔫 "A priest… a cop… and a killer. When a prominent rabbi is found stabbed to death in a filthy little oil town…

When a dishonest police captain pins the rap on an innocent bystander…

When an enticing blonde, who knows too much, is taken for a ride…

It’s time for genial, two-fisted Father Shanley and rugged Police Detective Sammy Golden to join forces and clean out a rat hole of vice and murder."

RARE pulp illustration appearance by famed girlie-artist PETER DRIBEN signing simply as "P.D." for the 1942-July issue of DETECTIVE SHORT STORIES magazine.
Lead story is Bruno Fischer via alias Russell Gray. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
