For the sake of a Russian princess, the Lone Wolf makes an enemy for life—and discovers a love he never expected While taking in an auction, the dashing jewel thief Michael Lanyard spies something more appealing than the artwork on the dock: the stunning Princess Sofia. There to purchase an impressionist painting, the ravishing Russian émigré becomes locked in a bidding war with her diabolical ex-husband, who drives the price up so high that no one can afford to top him—except for Lanyard. When he takes the painting home, the Lone Wolf discovers that he has spent 20,000 guineas on a forgery—and regrets it not one bit. It is his excuse to meet the princess. Sofia’s ex-husband is blackmailing her, threatening to tell the world the humiliating truth of their separation, and only Lanyard can save her. But rescuing the beautiful princess makes an enemy of her husband, who years later seeks his revenge—by targeting a woman the Lone Wolf has never met, but who holds the keys to his heart. This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Newspaper writer, family man, and reluctant hero Zack Walker has stumbled onto some dicey stories before, but nothing like what he’s about to uncover when a mutilated corpse is found at his father’s lakeside fishing camp. As always, Zack fears the worst. And this time, his paranoid worldview is dead-on. While the locals attribute the death to a bear attack, Zack suspects something far more ominous—a predator whose weapons include arson, assault, and enough wacko beliefs to fuel a dozen hate groups. Then another body is discovered and a large supply of fertilizer goes missing, evoking memories of the Oklahoma City bombing. But it’s when he learns that his neighbor is a classic Lone Wolf—FBI parlance for a solo fanatic hell-bent on using high body counts to make political statements—that Zack realizes the idyllic town of his childhood is under siege. The fuse is lit to a catastrophe of unimaginable terror. And with time running out, Zack must face off with a madman. From the Paperback edition.

The pulp magazines dealt in fiction that was, by reason of the audience and the medium, heightened beyond normal experience. The drama was intense, the colors vivid, and the pace exhausting. The characters moving through these prose dreams were heightened, too. Most were cast in a quasi-heroic mold and moved on elevated planes of accomplishment. This book and its companion volumes are concerned with the slow shaping of many literary conventions over many decades. This volume begins the study with the dime novels and several early series characters who influenced the direction of pulp fiction at its source.
