PULP NOW: PATHS OF FIRE!

PULP NOW: PATHS OF FIRE!

ALBERT RICHARD WETJEN

BLACK DOG BOOKS ~ IN PRODUCTION

Leaving home for the sea at age fourteen, Albert Richard Wetjen (1900-1948), was shipwrecked twice before his sixteenth birthday. On the later occasion he survived five weeks on an island before being rescued.

Once back to sea, to pass the time between ports, Wetjen began to read. Less than impressed by some of the fiction he read, which lacked believability, he knew he could tell a better story himself by simply drawing upon his working knowledge of ships and the tribulations of men at sea.

By age twenty-two, only a few years after his first attempts at composing fiction, Dick Wetjen was a regular contributor to the Saturday Evening Post and Collier's, simultaneously selling stories to the pulp magazines Action Stories, Adventure, Short Stories and Everybody's.

Paths of Fire assembles eight of the author's riveting tales of adventure.
