James Reasoner announced this morning that Weird Menace Volume 1 is now for sale. Electronic copies are $2.99 and paper copies are $9.99. Volume 2 will follow soon. Look for an announcement here when it does.
Here’s an excerpt from the introduction along with the table of contents.
The Weird Menace pulps flourished for less than a decade, from the mid-1930s to the early ’40s, but while they were popular, they delivered adventure, excitement, and spine-tingling thrills in quantities rarely seen before or since. Mad scientists, deranged henchmen, damsels in distress, and stalwart heroes raced through their pages in breathless, over-the-top, never-ending action. A good Weird Menace yarn really is just one damned thing after another.
Rough Edges Press asked some of today’s best authors of popular fiction to write Weird Menace stories, and they delivered. Settle back and let us spin a few yarns for you…
But keep an eye out behind you. You never know when something might be sneaking up on you.
