The Complete Adventures of Peter the Brazen (2-Volume Deluxe Edition)

The Complete Adventures of Peter the Brazen (2-Volume Deluxe Edition)

No pulp adventurer ever went through as dramatic a transformation as Peter Moore, famous throughout the Orient as Peter the Brazen.

Commencing with his first skirmishes against Asian warlords and criminal despots, the two-fisted shipboard radio operator nicknamed the Man of Bronze progresses in power as he becomes a troubleshooter par excellence who tackles such exotic foes as the Gray Dragon, Ung the Unspeakable and K’ang of the Green Circle.

But when he goes up against the fiendish Mr. Lu, the Man in the Jade Mask otherwise known as the Blue Scorpion, Peter knows he cannot win unless he transforms himself through arduous physical and mental training, which he does, becoming a true superman and earning a new nom de guerre—the Man of Chromium!

This two-volume set collects every Peter Moore short story and serial, including The Sapphire Death, considered to be one of the greatest sagas ever published in the pages of Argosy magazine. Author George F. Worts, writing as Loring Brent, was one of the chief stylistic influences on Lester Dent when he was writing his legendary Man of Bronze, Doc Savage.

The Strange Case of Iva Grey (Black Mask eBook)

Wacky as a loon—that was Connelly’s first impression of the Grey gal when she walked into his office and offered him a retainer for protecting her from the man she loved. And who could blame him? It was a million-buck check she presented to that hard-boiled investigator and the signature it bore was simply “The Man in the Moon!”

The Return of George Washington (The Argosy Library)

The Return of George Washington (The Argosy Library)

Lawrence Galloway, managing editor of New York tabloid The Daily It, was given the exclusive story of the experiments of Professor J. Hendricks Morgan, whereby he had perfected a system which would resurrect the dead… provided he have access to the subject’s skeleton and a cost of one million dollars. The test subject was decided by the readers of The It, and after the bones of the First American were taken from Mount Vernon, a young man calling himself Colonel Washington stepped from a glass case, asking for General Braddock. How would the world of 1920s America react to the return of George Washington?

The Return of George Washington was one of the main inspirations for the Doc Savage novel Resurrection Day written by Lester Dent, himself a long-time Argosy reader and fan of fellow author George F. Worts.

Considered by his peers as amongst the top tier of Black Mask writers alongside Raymond Chandler, Torrey was on top of his game in the mid-1930s. As fellow Black Mask scribe Steve Fisher remarked,  [Torrey was] “probably one of the finest writers Black Mask ever had.” However, Torrey made a brief foray to Black Mask’s chief rival, Dime Detective, to pen the tales of Los Angeles private eye Johnny Cass, written in Torrey’s classic gritty, hard-bitten style. Only running five stories, this edition collects the entire series, along with the one other story Torrey wrote for Dime Detective in this same period, “Curtains for Five.” Rounded out by an authoritative introduction by pulp historian Will Murray, The Complete Cases of Johnny Cass is the most important hard-boiled detective story to see print in years.

Shooting his victims in the temple with deadly accuracy, he leaves just one clue: a typed card bearing the single word, “Bentfinger.”

The East of Suez stories are the epitome of high adventure in pulp fiction.
