One of the greatest series from the pages of Argosy is finally collected, complete and in order! Footloose ship’s wireless operator Peter Moore becomes embroiled in mystery and intrigue in China as he faces the despotic Gray Dragon, thus beginning Moore’s long-running, adventure-filed journey across several decades of pulp fiction masterpieces.
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 City of Stolen Lives: The Adventures of Peter the Brazen, Volume 1 (The Argosy Library) by Loring Brent contains the following stories:
- “Princess of Static”
- “The City of Stolen Lives”
- “The Bitter Fountain”
