PULP NOW: THE ASTOUNDING, THE AMAZING, AND THE UNKNOWN!

PULP NOW: THE ASTOUNDING, THE AMAZING, AND THE UNKNOWN!

PAUL MALMONT

COMING JULY 5, 2011

I ENJOYED MALMOT'S PREVIOUS PULP ENTRY, CHINATOWN DEATH CLOUD PERIL, AND I'LL PICK UP THIS LATEST OUTING, BUT WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY MISSED THIS TIME FOR ANOTHER FANTASTIC PULP COVER INSTEAD OF THE LAME OFFERING ABOVE. . .

The epic sequel to The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril in which a band of writers led by Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein must confront the Nazi threat.

“Paul Malmont launched his affectionate and entertaining secret history of twentieth-century American pulp fiction with The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril in 2006. The Astounding, the Amazing, and the Unknown is the second novel in this sequence, and the focus turns to famous science fiction authors including Robert Heinlein and the young Isaac Asimov. Together they tackle the mysteries of Nikola Tesla and winning World War II in an adventure that swoops from romp to chills, from humor to dread. Malmont’s big, lush novel is sly and charming, nostalgic and intriguing fun.”
—Katherine Dunn, author of Geek Love

“Paul Malmont’s whirlwind novel celebrates the grand era of science fiction by taking its legendary writers as characters in a wholly original romp through WWII-era technology and intrigue. The Astounding, the Amazing, and the Unknown beams its readers right into its world with all the dazzle of a newly uncovered and improved Tesla transmitter.”
—Matthew Pearl, author of The Dante Club

“Watch out, Earthlings! The fathers of science fiction are on the prowl again, trying to save the world from the Nazis in Paul Malmont’s delightful romp. The Astounding, the Amazing, and the Unknown delivers thrills, laughs, intriguing speculation, and even a little romance—much like the best sci-fi. A treat!”
—Kevin Baker, author of Strivers Row and Paradise Alley

“Delightful . . . Madcap . . . It’s so much fun that it virtually defines what light fiction should be.”
—Library Journal (starred review)

“A wild trip . . . Malmont lovingly embraces the fact-fiction synthesis employed by the writers he brings to life . . . Fans of the original pulps will surely enjoy the ride.”
—Publishers Weekly
