Paperback Fanatic 3

Posted by demonik on June 14, 2009

Justin Marriott (ed.) – Paperback Fanatic #3 (August, 2007)

 

Finally settled on a name and format, ‘the British magazine for collectors of pulp fiction’ was off and running with an issue entirely written and produced by the editor.

The Paperback Fanatic Guide To Kung-Fu in Pulp Fiction by a variety of often pseudonymous authors. Bruce Lee cash-ins, King Kung Fu, Mace, Jason Striker, Sloane, TV & Movie tie-in’s, Mondo, the Black Samurai, Six Gun, Samurai, Kung-Fu Master ….

The Many Faces Of Dr. Tabori. Paul Tabori, the veteran genre and publisher hopping purveyor of everything from serious sex studies (if NEL were involved, they packaged them as smut regardless), Crime & The Occult, a biography of Harry ‘Borley Rectory’ Price and a personal memoir of WW2  to fictional ghost stories, thrillers and Sci-Fi novels.

Sphere Horror: A Scrapbook Of The Seventies. This article and checklist provided the basis for Vault’s Sordid Spheres blog/ mini-site/ call it what you will, which continues the story through the following decade. With Justin’s encouragement, i might add.

The Devil And All His Works. Companion piece to the above, a brief look at the Dennis Wheatley Library Of The Occult and indebted to Stan Nicholl’s article What Ever Happened To Dennis Wheatley (Million magazine, Jan. 1991) as acknowledged in the text.

The Special Squad. ‘Donald Franklin’s short-lived series for NEL pit C.I.D.’s Barney Garrett and Jack Marsh versus the worst the steamy crime underworld can offer.

Back cover gallery. Six of Richard Clifton-Day’s seven cover illustrations for ‘Klaus Netzen’ (Laurence James)’s Killers series for Mayflower.
