PULP NOW ~ DOC SAVAGE: THE MIRACLE MENACE

PULP NOW ~ DOC SAVAGE: THE MIRACLE MENACE

LESTER DENT / WILL MURRAY

Pulp maven Will Murray again delivers top-notch pulp action in his latest Doc Savage novel.  Writing under Lester Dent’s original Doc Savage pseudonym, Kenneth Robeson, Murray shows both his understanding of Dent’s writing system, and his affection for the form and the character.  In this latest ‘wild adventure’ of Doc Savage, Murray hews ever closer to the original tales with breakneck-paced action coupled with an adroit handling of a fantastical plot, which in lesser hands would have spiraled out of control.  Murray long ago earned his pulp chops, but he continues to breath new life into the genre in a way that raises his contributions above the level of more mortal pulp writers. Great stuff ... Read it now ...

DOC SAVAGE: THE MIRACLE MENACE

When out of work magician Gulliver Greene stumbles upon a man who claims to be Christopher Columbus, still alive in 1937, it's only the start of the most complex plot ever to involve the incredible Doc Savage.

Called to the sleepy farm town of La Plata, Missouri, the Man of Bronze plunges into the enigma of the vanishing Victorian house. Is it haunted? Is it even real? Can Doc solve the mystery – or will he be sucked into the unknown vortex into which it disappears?

From his supersecret Crime College to a sinister island in the Great Lakes, Doc Savage and his brilliant team race to assemble the most baffling webwork of Halloween horrors ever encountered. 

For many weird mysteries beyond human ken converge in the Missouri wilderness in this, the wildest Doc Savage adventure yet!
