Bold Venture Press proudly presents PULP ADVENTURES #17, featuring an all-star line-up -- from the backwaters of post-Civil War Texas, the Prohibition-era of New York City, to an interior world several centuries in the future!
In "The Kidnapped Midas" by Johnston McCulley,
a stingy skinflint is satisfied with his "life well lived," until The Thunderbolt holds him hostage, and demands he pay his own ransom!
"I'll Make the Arrest" by Charles Boeckman depicts an embittered police lieutenant who assures everyone that he'll arrest a murder suspect -- until the case turns personal.
"Caverns of Ith" by Basil Wells depicts a far-flung future in a remote corner of the Earth. Could humans and a race of interior world dwellers co-exist peacefully? It might be possible, if they can stand together against a group of raiders ...
In the backwaters of a Texas town, an innocent man has an ugly word branded onto his chest, in "Firebrand" by Walt Coburn. He'll carry that accusation to his grave, but he intends to usher the culprits into the grave ahead of him!
Richard Simms provides an insightful introduction to "Caverns of Ith," which Richard Lupoff shares some personal accounts of Basil Wells, an overlooked treasure in the field of science fiction.
The stories are accompanied by original pulp illustrations, plus new illustrations by Ed Coutts.
