THE SHADOW #75: THE GOLDEN MASTER
Shadow #75: “The Golden Master” “Death’s Bright Danger” &
“Reign of Terror” [$14.95]. These three classic pulp stories were
written by Walter B. Gibson, Theodore Tinsley and Bruce Elliott (all
writing as Maxwell Grant).
“The Golden Master” first appeared in the September 15, 1939 issue
of The Shadow Magazine and introduces the classic Shadow nemesis,
Shiwan Kahn. It’s written by Gibson.
Tinsley’s “Death’s Bright Danger” has never before been reprinted.
It appeared in the May 15, 1942 issue of the magazine and pits The
Shadow against...the Light.
Elliott’s “Reign of Terror” ran in the June-July, 1948 issue of the
magazine. It, too, has never been reprinted.
As with the other Sanctum Books series - Doc Savage, The Whisperer
and others - these Shadow adventures are entertaining journeys into
the heroic fiction of the pulp era. They’re wonderfully made books
and I regularly despair that I might never get around to reading
them all. But what I can do is let you know about the new releases
as they appear. More Sanctum Books news is on the way.
