Hopefully, they can succeed to reprinting all these characters in these new editions, they are all excellent.
While all the Doc Savage novels were reprinted by Bantam, for those (like me) who have these reprints, the reason for getting these new volumes is the chance to read the original stories (WITHOUT the editing that occured in the Bantams, including in a few rare cases a LOT of text), see the original illustrations and covers, and the great additional articles.
This volume (#3 in their series), reprinting "Death in Silver" (Oct 34) and "The Golden Peril" (Dec 37). We get the cover of "The Golden Peril" as the cover of this volume, and both original pulp covers are on the back.
"Death in Silver" features Doc and friends going after the Silver Death-heads. Its also the first Doc novel in which not all his aides come along.
"Golden Peril" had Doc and friends return to Hidalgo to deal with a threat there. This is a sort-of sequel to the first Doc novel. Its is also written by Harold Davis, with rework by Dent. Davis would actually ghostwrite a few Doc novels for Dent.
Extras in this volume include:
"Interlude in Silver and Gold" by pulp historian Will Murray, on the writing of these stories.
Postscript by Murray on Davis's work on the series.
