"If you are a fan of H.P. Lovecraft like me, haven't you ever wondered exactly what was in the book entitled The Necronomicon? I know I have. In addition, there were these references to the Cult of Cthulhu, a name impossible to pronounce. Of course, the fun of it is to speculate and wonder, and not know for sure. Of course, as an author of fantasy, science-fiction and dark fantasy, I could not help attempting to imitate the master. What fun it was to write The Laws of Magic which takes some of the elements I used in my other novels, such as witchcraft and the occult and mix in a little Lovecraftian lore. In the Laws of Magic, a detective, called in by a mysterious young woman to solve the case of a missing professor, finds himself transported by the Necronomicon into a fantastic underground other-dimensional world where he menaced by Lovecraftian and other monsters and nightmarish creatures."

Sherlock Holmes' Female Rivals! This unique collection for connoisseurs of detection done female style brings back six of the greatest fictional women sleuths of the era of gaslights and horseless carriages. Fans of Kinsey Milhone and other contemporary women detectives, as well as of Agatha Christie and Honey West, will love this collection featuring the foremothers of today's fictional female crime-fighters. Long out of print and unobtainable, these celebrated women 'tecs - Baroness Orczy's Lady Molly of Scotland Yard, Anna Katharine Green's Violet Strange, Arthur B. Reeve's Constance Dunlap, C. L. Pirkis' Loveday Brooke, Valentine's Daphne Wrayne, and Edgar Jepson and Robert Eustace's Ruth Kelstern--were once nearly as famous as fictional sleuth of Baker Street himself. Their fame waned in the long decades of the 1930s through the '80s, when female sleuths took a backseat to Sam Spade, Nero Wolfe, and the like. But, they are back to baffle and thrill contemporary readers in The Legendary Women Detectives edited by Jean Marie Stine.

The Vengence Of Martin Brand!
First Time in Book Form the Classic Pulp Space Opera! From the hallowed pages of Amazing Stories in 1942, here is the first of the adult space operas. Written by the legendary, and highly controversial science fiction editor Raymond A. Palmer, The Vengeance of Martin Brand has never before appeared in any book edition. In this book, Palmer took a giant stride forward from his contemporaries, replacing the noble, uncomplicated heroes of the first space operas, with the tormented anti-hero, 'Suicide" Martin Brand, one of science fiction's most memorable characters. The half-crazed Brand, who likes to play classical music while rocketing toward a half-dozen enemy ships, atomic cannons blasting, is Earth's only hope. The embittered former spy for the Interplanetary Patrol is the only one who knows about the Martian spaceships waiting in the hidden cavern on the Moon. It would be easy to make himself the most powerful man in the system and become its master. But, to warn Earth Brand would have to forsake vengeance on the man who betrayed him and cost him everything he held dear, then survive two women, one who has sworn to kill him and one who has sworn to arrest him dead or alive, and if he made it that far, he'd have to fight his way to the surface through ten thousand Martians. But that's why the call him 'Suicide' Martin Brand. And even if he does succeed in warning Earth, war will flare across three worlds! From its advanced flashback within a flashback technique, to the adult passions and emotions of the characters, The Vengeance of Martin Brand is superior space opera far ahead of its time! Cover: Original cover The Vengeance of Martin Brand Amazing Stories 1942 by H.W. McCauley.
