PULP NOW: THE MAN WHO FOUND ZERO!

PULP NOW: THE MAN WHO FOUND ZERO!

EARLY SCIENCE FICTION AND WEIRD FANTASY FROM THE BLACK CAT, 1896-1915

EDITED BY GENE CHRISTIE


BLACK DOG BOOKS ~ COMING SOON!

Following in the literary footsteps of The Space Annihilator: Early Science Fiction from The Argosy, 1896-1910, Gene Christie has unearthed another collection of the imaginative, science-fictional stories your great-grandparents enjoyed long before the term "science fiction" was coined.

Decades before the advent of Weird Tales in 1923 and Amazing Stories in 1926, weird fantasy and science fiction was appearing regularly in the pages of popular American publications, included as a part of the routine mix of mysteries, adventures, romances, humor, Westerns and other types of stories.

These 24 uncut gems of the fantastic have been rescued from the chaff of their long-forgotten companion stories in crumbling old magazines, and are now available for the first time in three generations!
