THE AVENGER #10: PICTURES OF DEATH
“Pictures of Death” and “The Green Killer” [$14.95]. The two novels
were written by Paul Ernst, returning to the series for the first
time in a year. In an historical essay, Will Murray writes “During
that time, Ernst cemented his reputation in the slick magazine
field and wrote less and less pulp.”
The novels were originally published in the November 1941 and the
January 1942 issues of The Avenger. Besides Murray’s essay, this
volume also contains an Avenger short story by Emile Tepperman from
the March 1943 issue of Clues Detective.
As with the other Sanctum Books series - Doc Savage, The Shadow and
others - The Avenger double novels are entertaining journeys into
the heroic fiction of the pulp era. They’re wonderfully made books
and I regularly despair I might never get around to reading all of
them. But what I can do is let you know about the new releases as
they appear. More Sanctum Books news is on the way.
