This issue will be guest edited by Mark Howard Jones. Mark says:
“I want to know what happened in the real or surreal lives of the old pulp heroes of the 1920s, 30s and 40s.
Were The Shadow’s weaknesses exposed in the cruel light of day? How often was The Spider legless? Who did Sam Spade really dig? What happened to Doc Savage, The Man Of Bronze, once he washed off the fake tan? Was Shanna, Queen Of The Jungle, a tigress between the sheets … or a purring pussycat?
And I’d like to think the era of swashbuckling skullduggery isn’t quite over, so why not invent your own twisted pulp hero? You can trust us – we’ll provide police protection …
I want to read a copy of ‘Black Mask’ magazine entirely written by the love child of Georges Bataille and Dorothy Parker, followed by the latest edition of ‘Famous Fantastic Mysteries’ edited by Alexander Trocchi.”
