Pulp Crazy – Doc Ardan: City of Gold and Lepers by Guy D’Armen, Adapted by J-M and Randy Lofficier

In this weeks episode I will be discussing Doc Ardan: City of Gold and Lepers written by Guy d’Armen and adapted and retold by Jean-Marc & Randy Lofficier. The book is published by the Lofficier’s Black Coat Press and is available in paperback, nook and kindle formats. The cover is illustrated by Dean Zachary.

Doc Ardan’s full name is Doctor Francis Ardan, he is a french pulp hero created by Guy d’Armen (likely a pen name according to the Lofficier’s) and first appeared in 1928. The City of Gold and Lepers was his first appearance. It was published in the french magazine Science et Voyages from the May 1928 through November 1928 issue.

Doc Ardan first appearance in 1928 pre-dates Doc Savage’s first appearance in 1933, so he wasn’t originally a character who physically resembled Doc Savage, as he does on the covers of the Black Coat Press books. The original artwork shown on the Black Coat Press site kind of depicts him as a traditional explorer. It appears the Lofficier’s leave the possibility open for Doc Ardan to be a young Doc Savage operating under an alias. According to the introduction, Ardan or Ardent (the t being silent in french) means fierce, fiery, wild or savage, which would be a fitting alias. The Lofficier’s also speculate in the forward that Ardan may be related to Michael Ardan from the story From the Earth to the Moon and Gale Arden from the Flash Gordon series.

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.
