Pulp Adventures continues its quarterly journey across the landscape of pulp fiction. This issue travels from the South Seas to London back alleys, and stops in smoky firehouses in the Windy City!
The highlight of this issue is "The Daughter of Huang Chow" by Sax Rohmer, a classic thriller by the creator of Fu Manchu! When Inspector Kerry investigates murder and opium smuggling, he stumbles across a woman whose feminine charms render him powerless-but he doesn't seem to mind! Also in this issue: A show business detective finds himself working for an actor who loses track of his women in "Road Show" by Roger Torrey; "A Pinch of Powder" by Karl Detzer chronicles the plight of heroic firefighters who need rescuing from the new firehouse cook!; Richard A. Lupoff continues the exploits of Splash Shanahan, in "Tangaroa's Eye," as he transports a lovely passenger to a secret paradise; In a Railroad Stories' short by Dave Martin, "Boxcar Mary" is a tomboy who rides the rails to trouble; And a German spy master meets his equal in Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson's "Treason For Glory."
In the nonfiction category, Pulp Adventures #19 features "Searching for a Hero: Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson" by Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson. The pulp author turned comic book publisher, who paved the way to success for Superman, also lived the adventures he wrote. "Liner notes" on authors Karl Detzer (by Detzer, himself) and Sax Rohmer (by William Patrick Maynard) accompany their stories.
This issue sports a slam-bang action cover by Norman A. Saunders, courtesy of the illustrator's estate, and a dramatic "Daughter of Huang-Chow" back-cover by John A. Coughlin.
