by Paul Ernst
introduction by John Pelan
Pre-dating the great comic book villains, Paul Ernst’s Doctor Satan stalked through the pages of Weird Tales in 1935 and 1936, bent on world domination and bizarre evil deeds for his own amusement. Opposing him with his own blend of science and sorcery is criminologist Ascott Keane.
For the first time since their original publication—from Doctor Satan’s first appearance to his last bow in the pages of “the unique magazine”—at long last, all of Doctor Satan’s appearances are collected in one handsome volume in chronological order.
All the stories have been carefully edited and re-typeset, and this edition features a new introduction by author/editor John Pelan.
The Complete Tales of Doctor Satan by Paul Ernst contains the following stories:
- “Doctor Satan”
- “The Man Who Chained the Lightning”
- “Hollywood Horror”
- “The Consuming Flame”
- “Horror Insured”
- “Beyond Death’s Gateway”
- “The Death’s Double”
- “Mask of Death”
