Three Witches: An Adventure of El Tigre Azul

eBook: Luchadores, for the uninitiated, are masked Mexican wrestlers. In Three Witches, we encounter three luchadores. After a hard day of battling a gang of outlaws called The Criminal Body, luchador El Tigre Azul--The Blue Tiger--just wants to go home and sleep. Instead, he’s pulled into combat with a bewitched giant rooster, a shape-changing wrestler, and a witch in league with the Lord of the Underworld. Along the way he meets two more luchadores: Dr. Zaius, who experienced a life-changing epiphany while watching the Charlton Heston version of the movie Planet of the Apes; and El Puno de Bronce (The Fist of Bronze), an older fighter with a mysterious past, hard-drinking sloth combined with a no-holds-barred fighting style. Hard-boiled fun for fans of Mexploitation cinema and Hellboy-style monster battles.

"Rarely have I wanted to steal an idea as much as I'd like to steal Duane Spurlock's" -- Jim Beard, writer for and author of Captain Action: Riddle of the Glowing Men

The Devil's Nest in Jungle Tales Volume 1

Book: The Devil's Nest is the longest of the three stories about Ki-Gor, the jungle hero, in this print anthology. Ki-Gor was the hero of a series of stories that appeared in the Jungle Stories pulp magazine published by Fiction House from 1938 through 1954, based on the tremendous popularity of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan in books, magazines, movies, newspaper comic strips, comic books, and even more popular media. Here, Ki-Gor accompanies an expedition hunting for the heir to an American fortune, lost in the jungle. Ki-Gor and his companions encounter pygmy warriors, cannibals, and a bad of mercenaries on the trail to find the source of King Solomon's gold--in a lost valley filled with monsters.

Blood 'n' Thunder: Winter 2012: All-Westerns Double Issue (Volume 32)

Paperback magazine: This special book-length (234 pages) issue is our most ambitious yet. The main feature is a 22,000-word essay on Zane Grey and his involvement with Hollywood, illustrated with more than 60 rare photos. Other articles cover Tom Mix's silent-movie adaptations of Max Brand novels (including my article comparing the serialized magazine appearance, novel edition, and silent film version of Max Brand's Alcatraz), the evolution of Western fiction in pulp magazines, the making of Republic's 1938 cliffhanger serial featuring the Lone Ranger, an overview of the Doubleday-published pulp titled WEST, and a behind-the-scenes report on the discovery and marketing of Roy Rogers. Finally -- and this last item would be worth the price alone -- we reprint a classic 1919 Western novella by Stewart Edward White, THE KILLER, which has been out of print for decades and was the inspiration for the 1932 George O'Brien Western titled MYSTERY RANCH. At 36,000 words, this thrilling yarn deserves publication as a standalone book, but we've included it as bonus material! There are nearly 100 movie photos reproduced in this issue, and nearly as many pulp covers and original pieces of art by such well-known Western illustrators as Walter M. Baumhofer, Tom Lovell, and Gayle Hoskins, to name just a few.

Pretty Polly: A Sheriff Shoat Western

eBook: Griswold Bear--a.k.a. Grizzly (or Grisly, depending on who's talking) Bear--a vicious outlaw, enters the town of Wicket with the intention of terrorizing the inhabitants and filling his saddlebags with money and whiskey. However, his plans take a sharp turn into unexpected territory when he meets the Sheriff of Wicket, who offers the marauder a deal.

Praise for "Pretty Polly" in its print edition:
"For outright horsey humor there is Hard Times For The Pecos Kid by Les Pierce and Pretty Polly by Duane Spurlock. Both could have been made into movies with James Garner, they have the same light, hilarious flare to them." -- Ron Fortier, Pulp Fiction Reviews

"Spurlock pulls it off with verve." -- Bill Crider, author of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes series

"Actually a fairly gritty Western yarn with a bit of a twist ending." -- James Reasoner, author of western and crime novels
