Pulp Crazy – Savage Shadow by Philip Jose Farmer

In this weeks episode I will be discussing a short story by Philip Jose Farmer that I have recently finished reading. The story is called Savage Shadow and as you can guess from the title it fits into the body of work known as his pulp period. It was originally published in 1977 in the pages of Weird Heroes #8, a new pulp series of books put together by Byron Preiss Visual Productions and published by Pyramid/Jove/HBJ. It was later reprinted in Pearls From Peoria in 2006, a hardcover collection of Farmer’s writing edited by Paul Spiteri and published by Subterranean Press. In addition to the Savage Shadow, an article written by Farmer titled The Grant-Robeson Papers is included in both books and serves as a Foreword to Savage ShadowSavage Shadow was to be the first in a series of stories that Farmer dubbed The Grant-Robeson Papers. To boil it down to the most basic premise, in Savage Shadow Farmer writes under the name Maxwell Grant (the Street & Smith house name Walter Gibson and others wrote under when writing the Shadow pulps). The star of Savage Shadow is an aspiring young pulp writer named Kenneth Robeson, which is the Street & Smith house name Lester Dent and other wrote under when writing the Doc Savage pulps. Be sure to watch the videocast or look at the Show Notes for a little visual aide Cheat Sheet that I made for clarification.

In this special episode I discuss the recently released Tales of the Wold Newton Universe collection from Titan Books. Edited by Win Scott Eckert and Christopher Paul Carey, this is a collection of Wold Newton fiction by Philip Jose Farmer and those following in his footsteps. I highly recommend it. There are references made within this collection to the Shadow, Doc Savage, King Kong, H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan, Sherlock Holmes and A.J. Raffles to name a few.
