New arrivals – Week of May 24-29, 2010

A little less this week, but still some interesting things:

The Blood ‘N’ Thunder Guide to Collecting Pulps by Ed Hulse [published by Muriana Press, 2007 oversized trade paper, new copy] – reference – this is more an overview of the pulp magazines published in America than it is a guide to buying specific items. There are no prices here, only suggestions for some specific issues to seek. There is a huge amount of information for anyone interested in this fascinating subject, which is why I bought it.

These next two are a matched set, limited edition, numbered (#102 of 200):

King, of the Khyber Rifles by Talbot Mundy [published by Girasol Books, October 2008, oversized hardcover, facsimile edition, new copy] – a classic adventure tale of India, originally published as a serial in May 1916 – January 1917. This edition has the original illustrations by Joseph Clement Coll, one of America’s finest illustrators.

The Messiah of the Cylinder and other stories by Victor Rousseau (and other authors)  [published by Girasol Books, March, 2009 oversized hardcover, facsimile edition, new copy] – Messiah of the Cylinder is a classic pulp science fantasy originally published in 1917. This edition includes six additional stories by various authors, all with the original illustrations by Joseph Clement Coll, one of America’s finest illustrators.

The latest from Planet Stories:

The Walrus and the Warwolf by Hugh Cook [published by Planet Stories, June 2010, trade paper, new copy] – fantasy – originally published in England in 1988, this is the first North American publication – classic sword and sorcery fantasy.

And that wraps up another Mailbox Monday. Happy memorial Day!

  1. I haven’t seen the Hugh Cook book yet, Rick. I’ll have to pick up a copy! Love swords & sorcery!

  2. Those all look good, especially the Cook.

  3. Richard R. says:

    I have a subscription to Planet Stories , George, so they ship it on publication. I haven’t read it yet, of course.

  4. Thanks for the heads-up. I tried it and after considerable fumbling, figured it out. Check the results.

  5. Carl V. says:

    I am a fan of Coll’s work and really like those two cover illustrations. I would imagine there are some other wonderful pieces inside.
