I can hardly believe it’s been more than six weeks since I last updated this blog. Hurricane Sandy, which was just about to strike New Jersey when last I posted here, spared my immediate neighborhood but wreaked havoc nearby; we were dealing with power outages, blocked roads, and long lines at gas stations for weeks […]

I haven’t done much blogging lately because I’ve been sweating over the new Murania Press publications that will formally debut at next week’s PulpFest in Columbus, Ohio. Just today UPS delivered my first copies of A. M. Chisholm’s Pirates of the Pines, the third volume in Murania’s Classic Pulp Reprints series. It looks pretty darn […]

Posted in Blood 'n' Thunder,PulpFest on July 20, 2012 @ 2:19 pm

After returning from Winston-Salem last Sunday, your humble correspondent required several days to recuperate from sleep deprivation and horrendous drives in both directions. But time marches on, or waits for no man, or something like that, so I need to get my butt back into gear — especially because, among other things, I’m moving at […]


The Book Cave: Enter At Your Own Risk

Recently I was interviewed by Ric Croxton and Art Sippo, co-hosts of the popular Book Cave podcast, which caters to fans of genre fiction, comic books, and other pop-culture storytelling forms. Every year around this time they graciously allow me to plug PulpFest as well as upcoming issues of Blood ‘n’ Thunder and other Murania […]


Chandu? Can Do!

I don’t remember exactly how, when or where I first learned about Chandu the Magician. Most likely I saw stills from it in Famous Monsters of Filmland, Castle of Frankenstein, or one of the other “monster mags” published during the Sixties. I do remember being intrigued by the character right away, and a little research […]


It’s Now Easier to Start or Renew Your BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER Subscription

As some of you know, the Murania Press site was in development quite a while, with work conducted in fits and starts. Chris Kalb came up with the basic design for what began as a Blood ‘n’ Thunder site, but after launching the “Classic Pulp Reprints” line last year I decided to put all my […]


A Little More Patience, Please!

Posted in Blood 'n' Thunder on May 29, 2012 @ 10:32 pm

I realize you subscribers are waiting with baited breath for the latest issues of Blood ‘n’ Thunder, and I assure you they’ll be arriving soon. My involuntary hiatus might have raised Ned with Murania’s publishing schedule, but it also (perhaps I should say eventually) enabled me to finish this long-delayed site and update my subscriber […]
