Captain Philip Strange: Strange Rivals

by Donald E. Keyhoe

A war between Strange Rivals! Arch competitors on stage become deadly enemies in war! Philip Strange, the Mental Marvel, meets Karl von Zenden, the Man of a Thousand Faces, in a return engagement. Step right up for the craziest double-bill in peace or in conflict. Also appearing for a limited time: flying skeletons, ghost aces, and sky pirates. Can America’s “Brain-Devil” bring down the curtain on this cursed menagerie, or will he finally be upstaged by his evil opposite?


Roaring out of the 1930’s comes the greatest heroes to ever fly WWI Europe’s unfriendly skies!

Straight from the tattered pages of Popular Publication’s air war pulps, Age of Aces Books is proud to be able to bring you the best of these heroes. Don’t spend all that time and money tracking down dozens of the crumbling original magazines looking for your favorite aviator. Age of Aces has done that for you. Each of our books contain stories featuring a single exciting character or written by one of your favorite authors. We are also doing some books that are not air war but still have a connection to that era and those magazines. All Age of Aces books are 6 X 9 trade paperback editions, and are available from Amazon.com.

When the Kraut concoction cooker-uppers caused a flock of Allied flyers to forsake their battle buggies in favor of a Western Front version of the Yassar daisy chain, Rufus Garrity roared, “It’s impossible!” Of course, when his own sky-scrappers got messed up with Kid Maxie, the Munich Mauler, the fiery Major’s opinion had to be revised. All of which was a mere trifle. For after Phineas deftly tossed his Uncle Thaddeus’s Sioux shillelah, Heinie-land’s whole history had to be revised—believe it, or else!
