Just in time for PulpFest . . .
We’ll be debuting the second volume of our Captain Philip Strange series at PulpFest on Friday. So if you’re in attendance stop by our table and meet the Age of Aces crew and pick up a copy of Captain Philip Strange: Strange Enemies (and The Three Mosquitoes: The Thunderbolt Ace if you haven’t yet).
He hope to see you there!
Yes, the first book in our new series, Captain Philip Strange: Strange War is here and just in time for the 80th Anniversary of the publication of his first appearance in Flying Aces Magazine in August of 1931!
We were at the PulpFest in Columbus, Ohio this weekend premiering our new book. Strange War has six exciting stories of “the Phantom Ace of G-2″ with an introduction by Sid Bradd and all beautifully wrapped up in an exciting new design by Chria Kalb. Keyhoe’s Brain-Devil takes on all manner of pterodactyls, flaming fire balls raining down from the sky and demon aces with the help of Tom and Noisy Jay—the twin aces of G-2 affectionately known as the Jay Birds.
The Captain Philip Strange stories ran for nine years—from 1931 through 1939—in the pages of Flying Aces magazine. And we’re already preparing the second volume which will collect the Fraulein Doktor stories—Strange’s former love, now nemesis due to circumstances brought about by the war. (This book will be out later this year.)
Strange War should be available at Amazon very soon—it sometimes takes a day or two for them to add the book to their system. And speaking of PulpFest, for those who couldn’t attend, here are some links to download the various flyers he had out for people to pick up:
The Iron Ace is Coming!
“From one end of the Allied line to the other, Hugh McQuillen was known as the Assassin. He had smashed his way to fame by refusing to believe that war was a game, for he fought to kill with all the cold hardness of a hurtling shell—and he was just as deadly. Many enemies he had made, and many men of his own squadron had defied him . . .”
William E. Barrett, better known for fare like The Left Hand of God and Lillies of The Field, cut his teeth on short stories in pulp fiction aviation and detective magazines. We had originally posted a few of these Iron Aces stories in our Age of Aces Presents section. They were so good we had to collect all nine Iron Ace stories and present them in one volume!
We will be debuting the hardboiled adventures of Hugh McQuillen at PulpFest this Friday. Stop by our table and meet the Age of Aces team and pick up a copy of The Iron Ace or any of our other titles at a special reduced PulpFest price. If you can’t make it, the book will be available to order through Amazon at the usual price.
PulpFest 2009 report
The Age of Aces team had a blast at PulpFest 2009 this past weekend! This was our first time at a pulp gathering as official dealers, and though it mostly tied us to our table I think it was actually more fun because it gave us the opportunity to interact with so many pulp fans and curious people from Columbus. This was also a rare chance to hang out with some of the contributors to our books, like Scott Cranford, Don Hutchison, Sid Bradd and Thomas Krabacher. (more…)
