The Vengeance of the Wah Fu Tong: The Complete Cases of Jigger Masters, Volume 1 (The Argosy Library)The Vengeance of the Wah Fu Tong: The Complete Cases of Jigger Masters, Volume 1 (The Argosy Library)

by Anthony M. Rud, illustrated by Robert A. Graef

Though author Anthony M. Rud made his mark as one of the scribes to appear in the first issue of Weird Tales, and soon after, as a long-time editor of the prestigious Adventure Magazine, he never forgot his series character, J.C.K. “Jigger” Masters, whom he introduced in a series of offbeat, bizarre mysteries which sometimes drifted into the realm of the supernatural in the pages of The Green Book magazine. For the first time, Rud’s initial eight Masters stories are collected, along with the original illustrations by the incomparable Robert A. Graef.

Featuring illustrations by acclaimed fantasy artist Lawrence Sterne Stevens from this story’s appearance in Fantastic Novels Magazine.

Trailing this disappearance, reporter Larry Larrabee finds himself pitted against amazing adversaries with strange scientific weapons and stranger, non-human allies: an overwhelming army of robots led by beast scientists from the planet Venus.

The Ruby of Suratan Singh: The Adventures of Scarlet and Bradshaw, Volume 2 (The Argosy Library)The Ruby of Suratan Singh: The Adventures of Scarlet and Bradshaw, Volume 2 (The Argosy Library)

by Theodore Roscoe

Best remembered as the author of Thibaut Corday and his French Foreign Legion yarns, author Theodore Roscoe wrote another, little-known, long-running series: the adventures of curio hunter Peter Scarlet and Bradshaw, the naturalist. While each appeared in solo stories, they also teamed up in several yarns. These tales of treasure in the Orient are action-filled adventure by one of pulpdom’s best. Volume 2 collects the next six adventures, taken from the pages of Action Stories, Far East Adventure Stories, and Argosy magazines.

The Darkness at Windon Manor (The Argosy Library)The Darkness at Windon Manor (The Argosy Library)

by Max Brand, introduction by William F. Nolan

Something natural—or supernatural—enters the soul of Andrew Creel, a commonplace young man, and drives him into a swift game where death is a probability on the one side and love only a possibility on the other. Creel plays it to the end: an end unlike the end that seemed so sure when dusk fell on the garden of that charming mansion with its sinister residents. Author Max Brand graced the pages of Argosy with this tale of mistaken identity, a femme fatale, and a haul of stolen jewels in a never-before reprinted story, along with an all-new introduction by Brand historian William F. Nolan (Logan’s Run).

The Golden Cat: The Adventures of Peter the Brazen, Volume 3 (The Argosy Library)The Golden Cat: The Adventures of Peter the Brazen, Volume 3 (The Argosy Library)

by George F. Worts, writing as Loring Brent

Peter Moore is back! In this next story in the series, Jonathan Driggs, journeying in search of his love, Gloria Dale, has learned that she was become the mistress of Fong-Chi-Ah, fiend of all Asia. At the same time, the Golden Cat—a symbol of the long-absent Queen Shari—has been stolen. Elsewhere in China, wireless operator Peter Moore receives a message from a “Gloria Dale:” a mysterious woman seemingly kidnapped, and wearing a Golden Cat around her neck….

Written by long-time Argosy author George F. Worts under his primary pen-name, Peter the Brazen made a marked impression on Argosy reader Lester Dent when he co-created Doc Savage. The saga of Peter the Brazen is amongst the best adventure series in the history of pulp fiction.

The Apes of Devil’s Island (The Argosy Library)The Apes of Devil’s Island (The Argosy Library)

by John Cunningham

When Jimmy Wendell takes a yachting trip with some friends, he never expected to become involved in an attempted murder of the crew and the ship’s destruction on a reef. Making it to a small, shark-encircled island, Wendell will soon learn of the Apes of Devil’s Island. Argosy often revisited the themes from their most popular stories, and this is no different: author John Cunningham pens a tale of high adventure that has been forgotten for too long.

The Exploits of Beau Quicksilver (The Argosy Library)The Exploits of Beau Quicksilver (The Argosy Library)

by Florence M. Pettee

Scourge of the underworld, “that damned dude dick”—Beau Quicksilver was an enigmatical crime-chaser—a mercurial master. A predecessor to Philo Vance, this detective solved seven separate cases in the pages of Argosy magazine, published in consecutive issues.

Author Florence M. Pettee’s work appeared in several of the top pulp magazines of the 1920s, including Black Mask, and her quirky characters known for their offbeat gimmicks and situations… not to mention her distinctive prose. Often written about—but never reprinted—the exploits of Beau Quicksilver belong in The Argosy Library.
