The only reason I didn't give this book a five star rating is the printers made at least a dozen typographical errors when they printed it. Typos are annoying and one of these turns an innocent four letter word into something R rated. not the fault of the writers or the stories, I'm sure.
The book is filled out with two short stories; the first is "Angel in his Sights." The second is "Lady Arcane-The Mistress of Magic" both by veteran wordsmith Ron Fortier. Lady Arcane is significant because she also appears in The Ghost Squad a new pulp series by Andrew Salmon and Ron Fortier.
It's amazing to me just how varied the Golden Age of pulp fiction was. And THE HOUNDS OF HELL reminds me of this wonderful variety in its own unique way.
Because this collection of tales is ALL-NEW. The stories here are not reprints culled from the glorious, musty pulps, but new tales written in the grand tradition.
The first offering: THE HOUNDS OF HELL is as good a pulp yarn as one is likely to find. Written by pulpsmith Ron Fortier and scribe Gordon Linzner, HOUNDS offers a rollicking romp that pits the Moon Man against Dr. Satan. With short, choppy chapters, Fortier and Linzner keep the action humming and it reads so quick you think the tale must be half of its 113 page length.
"ANGEL IN HIS SIGHTS" follows on the heels of HELL. This memorable WWI tale by Ron Fortier is a feast of the imagination combining religious elements with the horrors of war.
"LADY ARCANE -- MISTRESS OF MAGIC" closes out the book in rousing fashion. As Miss Arcane will be featured in the upcoming GHOST SQUAD #1: RISE OF THE BLACK LEGION, here's your opportunity to get in on the ground floor and experience a solo tale with this unforgettable female.
The book is expertly illustrated by veteran comic artist Rob Davis and features an incredible wrap around cover by Tom Floyd.
Pulp fiction is back and it's here to stay. THE HOUNDS OF HELL shows us why with as captivating a trio of tales as one is likely to find in all of pulpdom. Miss this one at your own risk.
