Pulp Crazy – The Eldritch Force

In this episode I will be discussing a modern Cthulhu Mythos Round Robin tale, “The Eldritch Force”. It was recently published in the February 2014 issue of the Lovecraft e-zine. It is written by Pete Rawlik, Glynn Owen Barrass, Brian M. Sammons, Bruce L. Priddy, Robert M. Price, Rick Lai and David Conyers. The Lovecraft e-Zine, published by Mike Davis does a great job of releasing quality Lovecraftian fiction and making it available in multiple formats, this issue is no different. I’ll include links in the show notes where you can read or listen to “The Eldritch Force”. You can read the story for free on the Lovecraft E-Zine website and also download the audiobook edition of the issue that contains the story. If you wish you can purchase the issue in Kindle, Nook or Print format.

The Eldritch Force is a mash up of Pulp style heroes and the Cthulhu Mythos, It also acts a sequel to the original Cthulhu Mythos Round Robin, “The Challenge From Beyond.” It is set in Post World War II occupied Berlin and beneath Auschwitz. Some great pulp elements are present: underground tunnels, secret experiments and monsters to name just a few.

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.
