About this title


Jailed in his youth for thrill-seeking crimes, Howard Wandrei went on to a prolific career in an amazing variety of pulp magazines-- so many that he used several noms-de-plume to keep the stories separate. He wrote hard-boiled crime stories, boxing tales, mysteries... but his imaginative genius was most engaged when he was penning weird and fantastic stories. This collection is culled from stories accepted by Weird Tales, Unknown, Astounding Stories and Spicy Mystery Stories. With access to the original manuscripts, several of the stories have been restored to the author's intent-- effectively bypassing the editors and censors of the day.

Pulp scholar Dwayne Olson provides nearly 40 pages of introduction, placing the author in the pulp scene, scandals and all, with an annotated discussion.

When he wasn't pounding a typewriter or chasing women, alcohol and other bad habits which contributed to his early death, Howard was also an artist. Half a dozen of his original illustrations accent this collection. The reader will find a full-immersion pulp experience to savor in this collection!

From Library Journal:

This is a long-overdue collection of stories that originally appeared in the 1930s pulp magazines, plus two previously unpublished tales. Olson's 40-page introduction illuminates the life, art, and stories of Wandrei, a popular writer whose penchant for pseudonyms consigned him to obscurity?until now. Sixty years later these stories resonate with a timeless quality. Highly recommended for fantasy and horror collections.

Store Description

Who am I and Why buy from me? How many times have you ordered a book on eBay only to return it because it wasn't a first edition or in the condition stated? I'm Terence McVicker. I began collecting Fantasy & Science fiction in 1970 and opened my own brick & mortar shoppe in 1976 under the name, The Book Symposium, in Anaheim, California. I closed the shoppe long ago and since have been selling under my own name and on eBay under the moniker of epagana. I mentored for fifteen years under the noted bookman Roy A. Squires, specializing in Fantasy & Science Fiction and in my more than forty years of collecting & selling I have dealt with virtually every major bookseller in the field from Gerry de la Ree to Lloyd Currey. . . and I have learned much! I have sold to and appraised collections for the John Hay Library, Brown University's H.P. Lovecraft Collection and the Bancroft Library, University of Southern California, Berkeley's Clark Ashton Smith Collection and numerous individual clients. I worked with Ray Bradbury & Gary Gianni on Ray's last book - The Nefertiti-Tut Express which I designed and published in 2012 as The RAS PRESS. I have a forty year plus, reputation in the field for integrity, expertise and professionalism that I take great pride in: In other words, everything I sell I know to be authentic and I stake my reputation upon it. And everything sold is guaranteed to be delivered to you in the condition stated or your money back. If your shipment is damaged, then I haven't done my job! It's not the fault of the post office. And I guarantee this worldwide! Let eBay sellers better that! I look forward to having you as my client! - Terence McVicker
