A Trio of Beacon Books

Finished reading Stark House’s A Trio of Beacon Books this week. The introduction by Jeff Vorzimmer begins, “You are holding in your hands over a thousand dollars in books.” That’s because the original Beacon volumes are highly collectible and fetch top dollars if you’re lucky enough to find them.

I was particularly excited to read Marijuana Girl by N.R. de Mexico. His Suspense Novel, Strange Pursuit, was terrific so I was anxious to revisit the author without having to take out a second mortgage to buy a copy. Besides being a thrill to read, the novel is surprisingly accurate in its portrayal of marijuana—a rarity in the 1951, the year it first saw print as a Uni-Book (now, even more expensive than the original Beacon Book shown on the Trio cover).

Call South 3300: Ask for Molly! by Orrie Hitt takes readers behind the scenes of the television manufacturing business of the 1950s. Star salesman Slade Martin is ambitious, hard-drinking, and always on the make. He meets his match when his roving eye catches sight of Ann Frank in the promotion department at All-Channel.

Lastly, The Sex Cure by Elaine Dorian exposes the scandalous world of a gifted surgeon who operates in the boudoir nearly as often as the OR.

Trio delivers three gripping, ripping tales of men and women chasing bad choices that eventually demand reparation. Vorzimmer’s intro—worth reading before and after—only makes things that much sweeter.

Alec Cizak is busy writing his intro and story blurbs, and proofing the stories for Pulp Modern Vol. 2 No. 5. He’s predicting a June release.

This week I completed a six-page layout for Ward Smith’s article for the upcoming The Digest Enthusiast No. 12. Several back issue digests arrived this week. They’ve been scanned and retouched, so more layout work is dead ahead.

Western Magazine Oct. 1957

Vintage Western Digest
Western Magazine October 1957

L.L. Foreman “Tall, Tough and Texan”
“Brett Gaines and Ty Farnol were in a ticklish and dangerous business. They stole cattle back from rustlers—earning the hatred of the rustlers, and the suspicion of honest cowmen.”

Joseph Chadwick “Trail West of Fury” art by Matt Baker
“The big trail herd was run by a strange man. He was a Johnny Reb who had turned Yankee and then turned gunslinger. He was scorned by many—and feared by all.”

Will Cook “Renegade Wipe-Out”
“The three savage Oakhurst brothers ruled Jackass Gulch with roaring guns and silent treachery. Then they tied their tricks on young McKeene who didn’t know how to quit or when to stop fighting.”

Pulp Adventures No.34

Readin’ and Writin’
This week’s main read was Pulp Adventures No. 34, published by Rich Harvey, and edited by Audrey Parente. Here’s what’s behind the cover by Albert Fisher (from Front Page Detective Jan. 1941):

Editorial by Rich Harvey
Robert Leslie Bellem has three pulp reprints in this issue; one under the pseudonym William Decatur. Rich Harvey explores Bellem’s Hollywood Dectective: “Does the series epitomize the genre of hardboiled detectives . . . Or does the series actually lampoon the genre and its tropes, which were becoming cliché even before World War II commenced?” Perhaps, both.

“In a Sentimental Mood” by Logan Robichaud
Isaac A. Massinger is a suspected communist, his politics and advocacy cleverly hidden between the lines of his stories. Special Agents Beard and Greene have him under surveillance. The exact time period isn’t clear, but Massinger writes on a typewriter. When confronted at his apartment, Massinger allows a search of the premises and Beard discovered a trove of incriminating papers hidden beneath the floor. Moody and atmospheric, Robichaud’s prose exudes pulp while probing ideology, art, and connection.

“Death Do Us Part” by William Decatur (Robert Leslie Bellem)
“Fogarty had never been known to go back on his word, whether dealing with crooks or the Law. And for that reason, they picked him as go-between. The private detective was safe enough with $40,000—but that didn’t mean he was safe with women.”

P.I. Bob Fogarty is hired by Continental Assurance to deliver forty grand to a guy in Kansas City in exchange for eighty grand worth of stolen diamonds. The action and wordplay are non-stop in this intricately plotted screwball mystery adventure.

“Kill Me Again” by Robert Leslie Bellem
Turns out the previous narrative was only a warm-up for this scintillating Dan Turner, Hollywood Detective yarn. Turner returns home from a High Sierra camping trip with his pal newshound Jim Spencer and encounters his own funeral procession! Somebody was quick to capitalize on his two-week absence from civilization and wound up dead in a spectacular wreck while driving his car.

“Killer in Clay” by Robert Leslie Bellem and Adolphe Barreaux
It’s quite interesting to read a Hollywood Detective comic story right after an adventure in prose. In this form, the author concentrates on plot with minimal narration, allowing the artwork to carry the action and dialog to tell the story. It’s fun, but lacks the depth and wordplay of Bellem’s prose stories.

“Comrade” by Adam Beau McFarlane
A massive sand storm forces Allied and Axis tanks to take shelter in an abandoned rail station. Under their impromptu truce, the opposing tank commanders engage in a high-stakes card game to determine their fate.

“On the Ego Identity of a Butterfly” by Patti Boeckman and Sharla Williams
Like Pulp Adventures itself, this story combines the best of old and new pulp. Boeckman wrote it years ago, Williams “brushed it up,” for first time publication here. A youngster ekes out his childhood in a severely authoritarian family, his only friend an adopted butterfly that he attempts to tame.

“City of the Dead” by William M. Hope
A sword and sorcery novella joins series character Thurl the Gaelg on his trek to Samorrah to cash in the glowing blood red stone that recently came into his possession. But Samorrah has earned its mantle as the City of the Dead. The burly soldier of fortune will need all his wits and swordsmanship to survive the thieves, warriors, and the witch that lies ahead.

“Athena D” by Charles Burgess
Post-graduate Mike Simmons and his girlfriend, Jennifer Rolland, find themselves in the middle of a secret operation to disarm a Chinese satellite from the Yerkes Observatory in Williams Bay, Wisconsin.

“Straight Ahead Into Darkness” by Ron Riekki
An EMT finds himself with one for the books when he and his partner arrive at a trailer park to find an elderly man with a Taser dark stuck in his eye.

Pulp Adventures offers a pleasing collection of vintage and brand new pulp-inspired stories and artwork, across the genre spectrum. This issue is no exception. It’s available for $9.95 in print, directly from Bold Venture Press and other outlets.

Alec Cizak offered free ad space for indie authors in the next Pulp Modern (first come, first served) on his twitter feed, which filled up in a matter of hours. The “winners” submitted their ads, which have now been added to the layout.

Also completed the layout of Steve Carper’s article about Photoplay Editions for the upcoming The Digest Enthusiast No. 12. It’s loaded with cover images from these early digest series. And Michael Neno finished his color illustration for Rick Ollerman’s story.

Keep an eye on Pulp Modern’s Facebook page for the official announcement.

Rooftop Stew by Max Clotfelter

One of Birdcage Bottom Books 2019 releases was Rooftop Stew by Max Clotfelter, which I read earlier this week. J.R. Williams’ blurb sez it all: “HA, ha! I just love Clotfelter’s weird, gnarly drawings and sick, twisted stories… enjoy this book now, before the final apocalypse brings a sudden, merciful end to this troubled world…”

Michael Shayne Feb. 1957

Also read the Feb. 1957 issue of Michael Shayne Mystery Magazine. A diverse collection of crime stories: smart, screwball comedy by Veronica P. Johns; three solid deductive procedurals by Lee E. Wells, Jay Carroll, and Robert O’Neil Bristow; the suspense of abduction by Samuel W. Taylor, alternative realities by Henry Slesar, Robert Bloch, and Frank Kane; and the opening salvo of Brett Halliday’s Mike Shayne novel, Weep for a Blond Corpse. I’m reviewing this issue and the two that follow for either Peter Enfantino’s reboot of bare*bones magazine or The Digest Enthusiast No. 13.
