Sanctum Books celebrates the publication of its 100th Shadow novel with an extra-length volume showcasing tales by each of the pulp wordsmiths who wrote as Maxwell Grant. First, "The Man from Shanghai" is caught in the web of a murderous mastermind and his spidery Mongol assassin in one of Walter Gibson's greatest thrillers. Then, blood sapphires drip a deadly trail across Manhattan in Theodore Tinsley's "The Golden Dog Murders". Finally, Lamont Cranston and Joe Cardona go undercover as Tweedledee and Tweedledum to investigate murders at an Alice in Wonderland ball in Bruce Elliott's "Jabberwocky Thrust". This instant collector's item features a knockout action cover by George Rozen, classic interior illustrations by Tom Lovell and Edd Cartier, and commentary by popular-culture historian Will Murray.

Three terrific novels recreated for a modern audience in a very readable and preservable format. Forget comics for a while and put your imagination to work visualizing scenes in these works featuring the original crimefighter The Shadow!

Issue number 50 means the publishing company reached a milestone. 100 Shadow pulps reprinted. I noticed the cover price jumped to $14.95 recently. It used to be $12.95. Perhaps the printing costs rose. The number of pages did not change. The fact that there wasn't a reprint of a Shadow radio script was nice because those were starting to get boring. Don't get me wrong. I love the radio program. But there is a major difference between the pulp incarnation and the radio version. Anthony Tollin's prose is not featured among here (from initial flip through) and that's fine with me because the typographical errors are not as common in this issue as there are with other Shadow pulp reprints.

If you can get this issue for $8 or less, grab them. Shop around, it's not difficult. I bought two dozen Shadow pulp reprints for $2 each and a dozen more for $4 each. $8 is common at Pulp Festivals.

I don't buy my pulp reprints from Amazon. I stopped buying them from Mike Chomko and John Gunnison (Adventure House) because Anthony Tollin convinced me to pay for a subscription and receive each issue like a magazine subscription. I didn't think it was fair to Chomko and Gunnison, but Tollin was very persuasive and I saved money. And i don't have to keep following through every few months which issues came out since.
