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.

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.

Pulp Crazy – Sun Koh: Heir of Atlantis Volume 1 by Dr. Art Sippo

 

Art Sippo joins me in discussing his book Sun Koh: Heir of Atlantis Volume 1. I highly recommend this New Pulp title to all fans of the hero pulps (especially Doc Savage), H.P. Lovecraft and Philip Jose Farmer. Art weaves an amazing tale, revamping the Sun Koh character for a modern day audience. Often called the German Doc Savage, Art takes the character into many interesting places and is currently writing and planning future adventures. Art was kind enough to tease some future story lines and share some plans he has for the character. See the links in the show notes for links to Art’s work, including where you can purchase it.

Pulp Crazy – Time’s Last Gift by Philip Jose Farmer

 

In this weeks episode I will be discussing a novel written by a pulp writer. Time’s Last Gift by Philip Jose Farmer. I tend to call him PJF for short. The novel was first published in 1972, but was later republished in 1977 with additional material.

It was PJF’s birthday this past Sunday, he was born on January 26th 1918, he passed away on February 25, 2009 at the age of 91. Time’s Last Gift is my favorite PJF novel. It features a time traveling hero that is cut from the pulp hero mold.

In this special episode I discuss the recently released Tales of the Wold Newton Universe collection from Titan Books.
