Almost five years to the day of its publication, The Blood ‘n’ Thunder Guide to Collecting Pulps has been retired to make room for a greatly revised and expanded edition. Blood ‘n’ Thunder’s Guide to Pulp Fiction will be available this December, just in time for the holiday gift-giving season. At nearly 350 pages, the […]


Now, THIS Is A Fan Letter….

Posted in Murania Press,Upcoming Books on September 27, 2012 @ 4:48 pm

It’s always great to get feedback from readers of Murania Press publications, although much of it comes in the form of terse e-mails or brief notes accompanying subscription renewals (“Keep up the good work” . . . “Loved the last issue”).  But every now and then I get a hum-dinger of a letter. One such […]


Three-Day Overstock Sale!

Posted in Murania Press on September 7, 2012 @ 10:33 am

I’ve got a case of Murania Press books left over from last month’s PulpFest, and I’m going to try an experiment by discounting the three titles for which I have extra copies. So for the next three and a half days — until midnight on Monday, September 10 — I’m offering Barehanded Castaways and Blood […]


Gone fishing….

Posted in Conventions,Murania Press,PulpFest on August 8, 2012 @ 10:02 pm

  …fishing for old pulp magazines, that is. Once a collector, always a collector. I leave 6 a.m. tomorrow morning for Columbus, Ohio and the fourth annual PulpFest, about which you’ve read much here. If you’re within driving distance of Columbus there’s still time for you to join us, and a gala weekend it promises […]


PulpFest, Here We Come!

Posted in Blood 'n' Thunder,Murania Press,PulpFest,Upcoming Books on August 3, 2012 @ 4:52 pm

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 […]

PulpFest is coming up fast now: The convention begins just two weeks from today.

Moreover, if previous years are any guide, our 2012 show will have a sizable number […]


“What, another one?” Yep….

Posted in Murania Press,Serials on July 5, 2012 @ 10:47 pm

Just an hour ago I okayed a digital proof of Murania’s latest book — yes, later than Western Movie Roundup — and ordered bound copies. This is another quickie I whipped up after deciding to attend next week’s Western Film Fair in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It should do pretty well down there, I think. Cliffhanger […]


A New Magazine from Murania Press!

Posted in Conventions,Murania Press,Western Movies on July 3, 2012 @ 10:20 am

  Surprise, surprise. For some time now I’ve contemplated launching a separate magazine to cover Western movies. I’ve been seriously researching film history for nearly four decades and have devoted more time and effort to the Western than any other genre. (The serial isn’t a genre, it’s a format.) Over the years I’ve amassed gobs […]


Upcoming Murania Press Titles

With two new issues of Blood ‘n’ Thunder shipping and this site finally up and running, I’m now working on future additions to the Murania Press product line. This post is by way of a quick preview: With the exception of the first-named, the books described below will debut at this year’s PulpFest, about which […]
