Radio Western Adventures
In their heyday, pulp magazines were notorious for capitalizing on trends, or spinning characters off into other media such as comics and radio. So here at Pulp 2.0 headquarters we began our journey by asking, ” Why didn’t someone create a western pulp magazine back in the day that featured all of radio’s cowboy adventurers?”
For whatever reason they didn’t – so we decided we should.
RWA is a unique blend of nostalgia and hard-hitting western pulp action from the pen of DONALD F. GLUT (THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, BROTHER BLOOD, and TV’s TRANSFORMERS) and pulp celebrity LESTER DENT (DOC SAVAGE, THE AVENGER).
The book features the novella “Who Really Was That Masked Man?” — a tall tale about what happens when all of the classic western stars from those thrilling days of yesteryear encounter one another and embark on an six-shooting, whip-cracking adventure. This is the story that fans of western pulp, serials, comics and old time radio have been waiting for years to read!
In addition, the Legendary Lester Dent contributes a never-before-published story “Snare Savvy” featuring Haw Kain, a slow-talkin’, but quick-witted cowboy from Montana who runs afoul of some greedy land grabbers. There’s also a fast talkin’ gal who catches Haw’s eye, and makes his job of stopping the crooks all the tougher.
This one-of-a-kind western pulp features many exclusive extras:
- A comprehensive article on the great radio, comic and serial western adventure heroes (GENE AUTRY, HOPALONG CASSIDY, ROY ROGERS, SUNSET CARSON et al) that influenced the creation of “Who Really Was That Masked Man?” This article is lavishly illustrated with stills of young Don in his childhood cowboy outfits roaming the range of boyish imagination in Chicago.
- A tribute to Jim Harmon, the man to whom this book is dedicated. Jim Harmon was a good friend, author and ardent western radio fan, historian and wrote of many books on the subject including the definitive THE GREAT RADIO HEROES.
- A gallery of RARE STILLS featuring iconic western stars and autographed to Don Glut.
- A behind-the-scenes peek at “Snare savvy” by noted author and pulp historian Will Murray.
