In 1934 a new type of magazine was born. Known by various names — the shudder pulps, mystery-terror magazines, horror-terror magazines — weird menace is the sub-genre term that has survived today. Dime Mystery Magazine was one of the most popular. It came from Popular Publications, whose publisher Harry Steeger was inspired by the Grand Guignol theater of Paris. This breed of pulp story survived less than ten years, but in that time, they became infamous, even to this day. This ebook contains a collection of stories from the pages of Dime Mystery Magazine, all written by James A Goldthwaite reissued for today’s readers in electronic format. $2.99.
Dare-Devil Aces was another of the many pulps that rode the wave of popularity of World War I aviation tales in the decade after the conflict. It made its debut in February 1932 and lasted for an astounding 135 issues. It finally closed after World War II ended, with the November 1946 issue. During its run, it presented a wide assortment of high-flying aerial series, including The Red Falcon, The Vanished Legion, The Three Mosquitoes, Molloy and McNamara, The Black Sheep of Belogue, The Mongol Ace, Chinese Brady, Captain Babyface, Smoke Wade and others. Strap on your flying helmet, toss that scarf about your neck and get ready for some soaring action in the skies over France and Germany during the Great War. Dare-Devil Aces return in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format. $2.99.

I enjoyed the first volume of Fibber McGee and Molly's lost episodes. I have to say their format was an adjustment after being used to the regular half-hour episodes. Their serial storylines were interesting and I was struck by the fact that the shows were more...dramatic. Fibber and Molly seemed to have emotional reactions to the situations they found themselves in, which wasn't the case, from what I remember, in the half-hour programs. I already have volume 2, and forsee a time when I'll have all of the Fibber McGee & Molly collections.
