Edmund Snell wrote an almost uncountable number of stories for the pulps, many of them about exotic climes like Borneo. THE BACK OF BEYOND is considered to be the best -- and the hardest to find -- of his Borneo sagas. In it, real people battle the problems of life in the wild and untamed, including the native people. This is a classic of the genre, and a must-have for every serious collector's library. This edition contains an almost-complete bibliography of Edmund Snell's novels and novellas, compiled by John Pelan, who writes the introduction.
Now that you've dipped your toe into the raging torrent of Richard A. Lupoff's life as an inkslinger with WRITER Volume 1, it's time for 320 more pages of memoir, criticism, interview, and sheer literary joy. This time he tackles SF controversies, gives a speech or two, and dishes out some of the most intriguing gossip about the good ol' days of SF.
Written in 1924, this may be the first exotic thriller written by Edmund Snell, who again takes us into the exotic jungles of Borneo in THE CRIMSON BUTTERFLY. This novel tells a weird tale of hypnotism and sorcery, and features a mysterious insect whose sting is death to man, and whose wings look like pieces of raw beef. It takes all the wiles and courage of the English officials, the natives, and a visiting professor and his daughter, to get beyond the superstition surrounding the Butterfly and to track it to its lair
Written in 1932, this was a controversial novel because of the frankness of its depictions of a morgue. Nowadays it's a real curiosity because of the way the characters obsess about alcohol. There are many parallels between the prohibition-era America and the situation we find ourselves in with marijuana and this book brings them out.

THE SMILING CORPSE is one of the most unusual books you'll read this year, and it's a pretty good bet you haven't read this since it came out in 1935. It's a mystery, but unlike any mystery you've ever read, because the "detectives" in this tale are quite recognizable -- as mystery writers of the Golden Age, such as S.S. Van Dine, G.K. Chesterton, Dashiell Hammett, James Cain, and Sax Rohmer. The book has an introduction, The Smiling Corpse-A Re-Introduction by J. Randolph Cox, as well as a Preface by John Graham Ballantine, and there's even a "Who's Who" in case you've forgotten some of the old masters of mystery who show up as characters in this crazy novel. There are also several beautiful illustrations by Georg Hartmann.
The word may be getting out that Day Keene, author of those great noir novels of the 40s and 50s, also wrote a lot of stories for the pulps -- and that John Pelan and Ramble House are bringing all of them back for re-reading.
