Presents -

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the released of its newest pulp anthology starring one of the most famous figures in American theatrical history; magician – escape artist supreme, the one and only Harry Houdini!

Houdini began his stage career as a card manipulator.  As his popularity grew, he quickly became known as one of the most colorful stage magicians and escape artists of all time.  Then the movies came knocking and the man people had only read about in the newspapers was suddenly starring on the silver screen captivating audiences with his daring serial exploits.  Harry Houdini was no longer just a magician, he was a bonafide celebrity known around the world.

“I’ve been fascinated with this character since I first heard of him as a child,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “The more I learned it became clear that Houdini, during his own lifetime, evolved into one of the first true international superstars. Once he became a hero of the cinema, his fame and legend were permanently cemented in the hearts of his admirers everywhere.  Wherever he appeared the states, he would attract crowds numbering in the thousands.”

In 1904 Houdini and his manager, Martin Beck, began a world tour starting in London and the adventures grew even more fantastic.  “Although our stories are fictional,” continues Fortier, “we saw his globe-trotting escapes as the perfect backdrop for our writers to whip up fantastic, action packed tales.” From encounters with Bram Stoker and Arthur Conan Doyle, Houdini then battles an evil cult in the catacombs of Paris before heading to Berlin on the famous Nord Express where murder reared its ugly.  These amazing tales are chronicled here by Jim Beard, James Palmer, Ian Watson and Roman Leary.

The cover is by Carl Yonder with gorgeous black and white illustrations by Pedro Cruz and all put together by our award winning Art Directo, Rob Davis.  And so Airship 27 Productions is truly excited to present our readers with a brand new look at a truly extraordinary man who was indeed larger life, he was Harry Houdini, Pulp Hero!

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announced the releases of their latest New Pulp thriller – SECRET AGENT X – Vol 5.  The greatest pulp spy of them all returns in this, the action packed fifth volume of brand new Secret Agent X adventures by today’s top New Pulp writers. 

Within these pages the Man of a Thousand Faces squares off against a deadly foreign spy in a climatic battle amongst the clouds; faces terror on the high seas as he duels a modern day Captain Nemo and then battles with a beautiful, cunning criminal mastermind.  Here are thrills upon thrills in four brand new tales by J. Walt Layne, Andy Fix, Fred Adams Jr. and Frank Schildiner.

“By far one of our most popular series,” declares Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “Whereas this time around we thought it might be fun to have a cover that would pay homage to the old 50s Men’s Adventure Magazines and so recruited Ingrid Hardy.”  Ingrid Hardy is one of the premier artists of Canada and her water colors have been featured in various magazines and other publications.

Contributing the twelve interior illustrations is Pulp Factory Award winning Art Director Rob Davis.  “In all this is a great looking…and reading package,” Fortier adds.  “Our Secret Agent X fans will not be disappointed.”

Secret Agent X is one of the most popular heroes ever to emerge from the classic pulps.  Now’s he back; a one man army defending the country he loves against all who would threaten her.  This is pulp fiction at its best!

A few months ago, All Pulp came to an interesting precipice.  I had to make a decision to either leave All Pulp and essentially end the site or to pass on the duties I have here to someone else.  What actually happened was something different.  Mike Gold and Glenn Haumann of ComicMix reached out and wanted to bring All Pulp into the ComicMix family.  Many wonderful things were said about All Pulp, our staff, and what we have done to bring Classic and New Pulp news and more to the attention of readers today.   Although it has taken some time, that process has finally happened.

As of October 1st, 2013, All Pulp staffers will begin posting at just as regularly, if not more as we always have.  There are already past articles there as a transfer of the content here moved our stuff there.   New articles will begin appearing on the First of October and for the most part, our content will remain the same.  Some recurring things, such as newsletters for some companies and other material, will not be continued due to technical issues concerning how they were submitted usually as well as the style guide we'll be following at the new site.

Although I am not EIC, I will still be involved, primarily as a contributor and as the All Pulp representative so to speak between the two groups.

I can't even put into words how much the support and encouragement every single reader of this site has provided to myself and those who have contributed.  Please continue to follow Pulp news and the people in it with All Pulp at  Thank You.

The CBS Radio Workshop debuted at the end of the Age of Classic Radio, which was a time of innovation and experimentation, especially in terms of radio drama. The ten-hour Volume 4 includes “All Is Bright”, a history of the famous Christmas song; “1489 Words”, which featured the debut of later film composer Jerry Goldsmith’s “The Thunder of Imperial Names”, which was written for a concert band and was based on a text piece by Thomas Wolfe; a two-part adaptation of Frederick Pohl and Cyril M. Cornbluth’s The Space Merchants, which offers a satirical look at rampant consumerism from the viewpoint of an advertising executive; Archibald MacLeish’s “Air Raid”, the series’ only re-broadcast, which had first been written for the 1938 Columbia Workshop. Aired during the Cold War era, it took on a sinister new meaning; Henry Fritch’s “The Endless Road”, about a road to nowhere being built in the Caribbean and the corruption surrounding its construction; “A Dog’s Life”, which was the actual recordings of a pound dog being adopted raised by a man; Rose Orente’s “Carlotta’s Serape”, a play in verse, was the winner of a jury-chosen contest offered by The Academy of American Poets and CBS; Elliott Lewis wrote, directed and performed “Nightmare”, about a man who suffers from nightmares so bad that he can no longer distinguish sleep from reality.
The man behind CBS Radio Workshop, which debuted in 1956, was William Froug. Inspired directly by the work of Norman Corwin on the original Columbia Workshop, Froug put all the pieces together to produce a program that took the best of what had come before it and succeeded even further in production, performance and storytelling.
CBS Radio Workshop not only continued to push boundaries in terms of utilizing story, music, voice and more in exciting, modern ways, it broke new ground in radio drama. In short, the CBS Radio Workshop set the standard for modern audio drama.
Blending sound effects with story, music with voice, and quality with substance, the episodes on CBS Radio Workshop, Volume 4 shows how boundless storytelling can be with audio drama. 10 hours $29.98 Audio CDs / $14.99 Download.

“Personal notice: danger’s my stock in trade. If the job’s too tough for you to handle, you’ve got a job for me, George Valentine.”
Old-time radio fans love and revere actor Bob Bailey - particularly when it comes to his long-running stint as “America’s favorite freelance investigator” on the classic radio crime drama “Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar” in the 1950s. But before landing that lucrative gig, “Robert” Bailey cut his teeth on another detective show favorite that ran on the West Coast Mutual-Don Lee network from October 18, 1946 to September 27, 1954: a decidedly offbeat private-eye series entitled “Let George Do It.” George Valentine was an ex-cop-turned-private-investigator who set himself apart from his private eye brethren - at least, in the early episodes - by eschewing tough-guy muscle in favor of a certain manual dexterity and analytical thinking skills. His cases ran the gamut from murder to blackmail to kidnapping.
The episodes offered in this collection originate from transcription discs syndicated by the New York-based Harry S. Goodman Radio Productions. The discs themselves were found in Toronto and were originally syndicated throughout Canada by S. W. Caldwell Ltd. The audio quality of these recordings is exceptionally fine and, at first listen, it was assumed that the original scripts from the series had actually been re-recorded for syndication. However, additional research - and, particularly, reviews of the cast listings - lends credence to the theory that they are instead edited and repackaged broadcast recordings of the original 1946-54 Mutual-Don Lee run. The fact is, at this writing, there is no way to be certain of their origin -- but what is certain is that several of these broadcasts are not mentioned in any of the program logs for the series, suggesting that this is the very first time they have been made available for modern listeners to enjoy. Thanks to expert transfers and complete audio restoration, the crystal clear recordings in this ten-hour set give you the opportunity to really hear what happens when you “Let George Do It”. 10 hours. Regular Price $29.98 - Specially priced until September 12 for $14.99 Audio CDs / $7.49 Download.
Will Murray's Pulp Classics #32
by Kendell Foster Crossen writing as Richard Foster
Read by James C. Lewis. Liner Notes by Will Murray
The jade-robed Buddhist priest who battled crime as The Green Lama is back. Conceived in 1939 at the behest of the editors of Munsey Publications to compete with The Shadow, The Green Lama was the creation of writer Kendell Foster Crossen, who was asked to think up a hero who could lure mystery-minded readers away from The Shadow’s loyal legion of followers.
“The basis for the Green Lama came after I’d read a non-fiction book review in the New York Times about an American who really became a lama,” Crossen once recalled. “The book was titled, The Penthouse of the Gods.” That individual was Theos “the White Lama” Bernard.
Returning to the States, young Jethro Dumont assumed an alternative identity of the Buddhist cleric, the Reverend Dr. Charles Pali, then began gathering about him a band of civic-minded citizens to join him in his Buddhistic battle against suffering in all forms—particularly those caused by criminals. And aiding him from the shadows, the mysterious Magga, a woman of many faces who has taken an interest in guiding The Green Lama’s campaign against malefactors.
One of the fascinating and delightful things about Ken Crossen’s Green Lama stories is the parade of supporting characters popping in and out of the action during the course of the series. In our first selection, The Man Who Wasn’t There, two of these announce their intention to marry. In the second story, Death’s Head Face, they do wed, thereby paving the way for a resourceful new couple to work in service to The Green Lama.
And so, bid farewell to Gary Brown and Evangl Stewart, and say hello to Broadway-bound actors, Ken Clayton and Jean Farrell. You’ll be hearing more about these latter two in upcoming audiobooks.
Otherwise these exciting stories tell the linked tale of The Green Lama’s confrontation with James Nord, the Man with the Death's Head Face. He's the only villain the Lama tackled twice. They first encounter one another aboard the S. S. Cathay, as Jethro Dumont returns from his previous adventures in Hollywood, while Nord is operating a smuggling ring. Back in New York for the sequel, Dumont begins the search for The Murder Corporation’s skull-faced chief executioner.
James C. Lewis again essays the triple role of Jethro Dumont and his emerald-clad aliases, Reverend Dr. Pali and The Green Lama....Om Mani Padme Hum! The Green Lama Knows! 6 hours $23.98 Audio CDs / $11.99 Download. and Will Murray are giving away the downloadable version of the newly released Strange Detective Mysteries audiobook for FREE.

“Strange Detective Mysteries #1 is one of my favorite pulps and I am excited to produce it as an audiobook with my good friends at Radio Archives. It leads off with Norvell W. Page’s bizarre novelette, “When the Death-Bat Flies,” and includes thrilling stories by Norbert Davis, Paul Ernst, Arthur Leo Zagat, Wayne Rogers and others. Popular Publications went all-out to make this 1937 debut issue a winner. And they succeeded!”

The skies are filled with the birds of war, and the echoing cries of the vanished dead. And it is here Bill Combat makes his fight against a power whose creed is Hatred! A Yankee flier in Europe’s bloody skies, he lends his skill and his courage that freedom may not perish beneath the heel of tyranny — that the brave might be forced to salute no flag except their own! Fly the skies of early World War II with Captain Bill Combat — the war ace who fought across Europe through the smoke of human liberties as it vanished from the earth. Fearlessly he battled the minions of the Nazi war machine. The Nazi evil had murdered his mother and uncle, and he vowed vengeance. It was a rousing call to America, which had not yet entered the war. But it was a call that only lasted for three issues of Captain Combat magazine: April, June and August of 1940. Captain Combat was a symbol created by author Barry Barton to do and say the things that America couldn't officially say in those perilous times. Read along as blue skies turn red above, as green pastures become the barren homes of the dead. Today it stands as a rare glimpse of what fear fanned across America in the days when war was an ominous threat upon a bloody horizon.

Will Murray’s Wordslingers is not only the first in-depth history of the Western pulps, it’s one of the best and most important books on the pulps ever written, perfectly capturing the era, the magazines, and the writers, editors, and agents who helped fill their pages. Pulp fans will be fascinated by the rich background provided by hundreds of quotes from the people involved in producing the Western pulps, while writers will benefit from the discussions of characterization and storytelling that prove to be both universal and timeless.
—James Reasoner
I thoroughly enjoyed Wordslingers, one of the finest histories ever written about the pulp magazines, and those who edited and wrote for them. It informs, it amuses, it brings the pulp era to life as no other book on the subject ever has. It’s a book the pulp collector and fan has to own, but whether or not you’ve ever read a pulp, you might find yourself astonished at how just plain delightful this book is.
—Gerald W. Pag
Will Murray's new book from Altus Press is not technically a history of the Western pulp magazine. Though Wordslingers contains enough info for someone to assemble a traditional history, it's much more than that. Actually, it might be a whole new breed of book. I'm not sure there's ever been anything like it before.
Wordslingers captures the joy and the sadness of the 50-year saga of these history making (and history remaking) magazines. It's much more than a good read—it's an experience. Experience it yourself!

Review of The Spider and the Eyeless Legion
By Andrew Salmon
For October 1939's Spider offering, The Spider and the Eyeless Legion, Norvell W. Page narrows the focus a little bit for a creepy novel that will make you squirm while it makes you sweat. Although this one does not have as high a body count as other Spider adventures or end with a city in ruins, The Spider is faced with as dire a situation as readers will likely find in the canon and, as usual, the tale packs and emotional wallop as our hero is pushed, yet again, to the limits of his endurance and beyond.
It begins with The Spider barely escaping a police drag net only to be apprehended and enslaved by a mysterious organization able to inflict blindness on their victims by means of a gas. Reduced to a mere cog in the villain's nefarious machine producing bullets containing the gas for the unsuspecting police department, The Spider has to bide his time, learn all he can while he must stand by and watch his fellow New Yorkers work as slaves. That is until the love of his life, Nita van Sloan, falls into the clutches of the diabolical madman. Then The Spider explodes into action and both he and Nita wind up blind in the process!
Now how can The Spider prevail against a villain whilst blind? Impossible, right? If you think so, then you don't know The Spider. And it's this struggle towards the end that sets The Eyeless Legion apart and makes it such an engaging read. Watching as The Spider, helpless with the loss of his vision and at the mercy of his captors, overcomes this seemingly insurmountable obstacle to continue his battle for justice makes for an intense read that is out of the ordinary for the genre.
Along with The Spider acting as a 1930s Moses leading the enslaved in a revolt against their master who is bent on taking over the labor unions, we get to revel in the glee with which he takes the fight to the enemy needing to be everywhere at once as the pages fly by. Preventing a bank heist, warning the police commissioner that the bullets issued to the force contain the blinding gas, car chases galore, reuniting with his trusted aides Ram Singh and Jackson and the heart-rending blindness he and Nita suffer all combine to provide a well-rounded reading experience and one heck of a lot of fun. The novel's climax is an over-the-top masterpiece that is pure pulp and pure Spider.
I enjoyed The Eyeless Legion with its focus turned squarely on The Spider's desperate need to protect the everyman. The action is not as grandiose as other offerings but no less intense despite that and the relationship between Wentworth and Nita alone is always worth the price of admission. I recommend it.

You are doing a stellar job and I can't wait to get the other children's Christmas sets to listen to with my son - we loved the Cinnamon Bear!! I'm on a high as we've just returned from a three week trip to the States. I am an Elvis Tribute artist and have been fund raising for St Jude Children's Hospital which was founded by OTR legend Danny Thomas. I did shows in Washington DC which was fascinating - I actually searched out the places mentioned in the WJSV broadcast day! We then drove to Memphis for further shows and managed to raise $21,500!! The 20 hour drive from Memphis back to DC was helped along by a mixture of Elvis and Radio Archives stuff so thanks again! Now we're back, I'll soon be ordering more titles from you! The quality never fails to astound me!! The 15 min episodes of Fibber & Molly, The Lost Episodes are some of the most amazing recordings ever!
