Monday Book Pick: The Man of Bronze & The Land of Terror

January 11, 2010

The Man of Bronze and The Land of Terror by Lester Dent.

The first two Doc Savage novels.

The first Doc Savage novel I read was The Land of Terror back in either 1971 or 1972. It was a Bantam reprint that I picked up at store in Panama City just outside the Balboa Gate. Since then, I have read over 160 of the original 181 Doc Savage novels, as well as several by Philip Jose Farmer (licensed or otherwise) and Will Murray. IMNSHO, Doc Savage was the greatest of the Pulp Era Heros.

Friday B-Movie Pick

Crunchy Pulp Goodness with The Rocketeer!

Based on the comic book, with Howard Hughes standing in for Doc Savage, and Jennifer Connelly playing the girlfriend (drawn with a huge tip of the hat to Bettie Page in the comic).

Fire up the popcorn for this one. A fun film with a great cast.
