Windy City, Here I Come!

Posted in Blood 'n' Thunder,Conventions,Murania Press on April 23, 2014 @ 10:34 pm

Tomorrow I’m off to Chicago for the annual Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention, with which many readers of this blog are already familiar. Murania Press will have its usual booth, where the lovely Mala Mastroberte will join me.  I’ll be promoting the new Blood ‘n’ Thunder 2013-14 Special Edition, Distressed Damsels and Masked Marauders, […]


Call Me Ish…er, Lazarus.

Posted in Murania Press on April 18, 2014 @ 3:13 pm

Yes, it’s true, I’m back from the dead. The last six months have been extraordinarily difficult ones for me in every conceivable way, and the six months before those weren’t much to brag about either. I’ve shared some of the details in previous posts and isolated e-mails, so there’s no point in going back over […]


BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER #38 Update

Posted in Blood 'n' Thunder,Murania Press on January 10, 2014 @ 4:16 pm

Still in the process of working through back orders and getting ready to ship Distressed Damsels and Masked Marauders, I’ve decided that, at this late date, it would make no sense to print and ship Blood ‘n’ Thunder #38 in its present form.  Since the issue is so tardy, I’d have to whip up two […]


Celebrating The Serial’s Centennial

Posted in Murania Press,Serials,Upcoming Books on December 29, 2013 @ 5:13 pm

Exactly one hundred years ago today, motion-picture emporiums in selected cities across the country played Chapter One of the first true movie serial, Colonel William Selig’s The Adventures of Kathlyn. Over the next 40-odd years, more than 500 serials — or “chapter plays,” as they were also known — flashed across American theater screens in weekly […]

Happy Holidays From Murania Press

Posted in Murania Press on @ 3:47 pm

I hope all our friends are enjoying the holiday season and have been imbued with the accompanying spirit of forgiveness, because it’s time for me to open up a big can of mea culpa. Murania Press has been dormant for way too long, and I want to apologize sincerely for being unable to follow through […]


An Important Notice

Posted in Murania Press on September 13, 2013 @ 4:15 pm

Owing to the sudden convergence of rather severe problems — a Perfect Storm of bad luck, bad timing, unforeseen obstacles, and unintended consequences — the last several weeks have been extremely difficult for me. As a result I’ve been forced to postpone the printing and shipping of several Murania Press publications announced for late-Summer release, […]

Just this last week I started receiving e-mails from buyers of the just-released Blood ‘n’ Thunder Guide to Pulp Fiction, and so far they’ve been uniformly positive — even glowing, in some cases. It’s always gratifying to get that sort of response to something you’ve worked hard on, and I’m hoping that the new Guide […]



Posted in Blood 'n' Thunder,Murania Press on July 19, 2013 @ 6:51 pm

This blog has been dark for the last several weeks because I’ve been working furiously on a raft of Summer 2013 releases, among them the long-awaited Blood ‘n’ Thunder Guide to Pulp Fiction — which, I’m happy to report, is now available. This new Guide is a considerably revised and expanded version of the Blood […]
