Okay everybody, I’ve found something fun.

ARCANE: Penny Dreadfuls for the 21st Century.

I know that many of my fans are fond of Lovecraft, and some of you love the old horror/mystery/adventure pulps. I’m a big fan. (which anybody that has read pretty much everything I’ve published knows). Well, we’re not alone. 

Nathan Shumate is a friend of mine. I reviewed his last book on here, The Golden Age of Crap, which is the single best B-Movie review book ever made. Nathan is a huge fan of the old horror pulps, and has taken on a new project. He is trying to bring back that type of magazine, filled with those types of stories. Nathan is serving as editor, and has pulled together a good batch for this first issue.

I got a copy at CONduit. It is solid. I’m really rooting for Nathan, as there is definately a need for a modern penny dreadful.

Please, check it out, and support an editor that is trying to do something interesting.

Right now ARCANE is at Amazon Bestsellers Rank: #423,832 in Books (See Top 100 in Books)  and I know the Monster Hunter Nation loves it some pulps, so we should be able to boost that a bit for them.

While you are over on Amazon, check out this anthology edited by my friend Paul Genesse. http://www.amazon.com/The-Crimson-Pact-ebook/dp/B004SY6A76/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2&s=books&qid=1308147875&sr=1-1 I had an excerpt from Hard Magic in there. (The Bull King). In the second edition, I will have an original story. (working on that now, since the rough draft of Spellbound just went out to Reader Force Alpha).

  1. Larry doesn’t need me to tell the world how cool he is. Nevertheless, Larry is extra-super-cool. With a gun-toting cherry on top.

  2. so for us noobz, what is a penny dreadful? i can’t find any kind of plot or summary about this book? every page talks about it without identifying it.

  3. Dave,

    Arcane is a magazine, so there isn’t any one plot; it’s got ghosts, mummies, Deep Ones, under-worshiped gods…

    (A “penny dreadful” is the old-style cheap pulp stories of the late 19th century.)

  4. Sweet. I love the pulps.

    Ordered! I got me some reading to do tonight.

  5. Arcane and Crimson Pact are the first Kindle books I have purchased (Kindle app on Android phone). Finished Arcane, a fun read. Working on Crimson Pact.

  6. Friend of mine with a bookstore just got a set of original Arkham House first editions out of an estate. The stash has about eight volumes in total WITH dust covers. It’s probably going to cost me $40-$50 per book – OUCH!!!!
