A History of the Doc Savage Adventures in Pulps, Paperbacks, Comics, Fanzines, Radio and FilmBy Robert Michael Cotter (Jan 2009)
Doc Savage is not only the prototype of the modern fictional superhero; he was also a seminal force in creating multimedia crossovers. The character exploded onto the scene in 1933, with the Great Depression and the gathering clouds of war as a cultural backdrop. The series is examined in relation to historic events and changing audience tastes, with special attention on the horror and science-fiction elements. The artwork features illustrations, covers, and original art. Appendices cover Doc Savage paperbacks, pulp magazines, comic books, and fanzines, and a biographical appendix covers all major contributors to the series.
Doc Savage: The Lost Radio Scripts Of Lester Dent (Paperback)By Moonstone (Jul 2008)
Doc Savage is a physician, surgeon, scientist, adventurer, inventor, explorer, researcher, and musician - a renaissance man. A team of scientists (assembled by his father) trained his mind and body to near-superhuman abilities almost from birth, giving him great strength and endurance, a photographic memory, mastery of the martial arts and vast knowledge of the sciences. Dent described the hero as a mix of Sherlock Holmes' deductive abilities, Tarzan's outstanding physical abilities, Craig Kennedy's scientific education, and Abraham Lincoln's goodness. Lester Dent, a serious man of adventure himself, contributed to the legendary Black Mask Magazine some hard boiled/noir crime tales as well. This edition sports a cover by the also legendary Doc Savage cover artist Bob Larkin!

Doc Savage Vol 14: The Man of Bronze / The Land of Terror (Paperback)By Nostalgia Ventures (Jan 2008)
Doc Savage, Vol. 13: Brand of the Werewolf / Fear Cay (Paperback)By Nostalgia Ventures (Dec 2007)
What a wonderful combination! These two novels are some of the best or most important in the Doc Savage canon. In Werewolf we meet the beautiful, young, impetuous cousin of Doc, Patricia Savage. She would become the most famous recurring character in the series outside of the tightly-bound Band of Iron. You get an instant sense why in her first adventure, when she refuses to stay out of harm's way and rushes side-by-side into danger.
Doc Savage, Vol. 12: The Squeaking Goblin / The Evil Gnome (Paperback)By Nostalgia Ventures (Nov 2007)
When I was growing up, The Squeaking Goblin was one of my favorite Doc Savage stories because of the eerie image of the skull-faced "goblin" on the cover of the Bantam version. Creeped me out! It is wonderful to be reading these tales once again. I hope these reprints help a new generation discover the fun and fierce adventures of Doc Savage. ~ Thomas Fortenberry
Doc Savage, Vol. 11: Cold Death / The South Pole Terror (Paperback)By Nostalgia Ventures (Oct 2007)
Doc Savage 10: Dust of Death / The Stone Man (Paperback)By Nostalgia Ventures (Sep 2007)
Dust of Death was never on my list of favorite Doc Savage novels for a number of reasons, mostly because of the villain revelation and remnants of ghost writer Harold A. Davis' plotting. But this version, with nearly 5000 words of Lester Dent text restored after an overzealous editor hacked it out of the original pulp version, goes a long ways towards making this a much better Doc adventure. The villain problem is not corrected and doesn't make a heck of a lot of sense, but otherwise most of the plot has been smoothed out and it's an enjoyable romp. Even the introduciton of Ham's pet whatisit, Chemistry, didn't seem as annoying this time around. Much improved, though still not one to land on my favorite list. The second novel, however, The Stone Man, is a personal favorite and worth the price of admission. A bit of chopped prose has been restore to this one too, makign a great novel even better. ~ Howard Hopkins
Doc Savage 9: The Majii / the Golden Man (Paperback)By Nostalgia Ventures (Aug 2007)
The Majii is one of the all time best Doc Savage adventures and a great jump on point for new readers. Though the pulp cover pales in comparison to the magnificent Bama paperback version the added historical articles make up for it and the restoration is top notch from Mike Piper. The second offering, The Golden Man, contains extra material deleted from the original pulp and paperback versions. This particular novel has been one of the hardest to get a hold of in the series and a very interesting tale. Highly recommended.
The Lost Oasis and The Sargasso Ogre: Two Classic Adventures of Doc Savage (Paperback)By Nostalgia Ventures (Jun 2007)
The story is in largely flat, didactic writing without the force to draw one into the scenes....the kind of magic found in the writing of William Hope Hodgson is absent. The illustrations are the most evocative of the allure of the Sargasso...the allure which caused me to exclaim in my first oceanography class..."Sargassum? Sargassum? From the Sargasso Sea? The Isle of Lost Ships??? Wow!" As I stood there on the beach with the specimen in my hands trembling with joy!! One last point...There is a Red Headed Heroine...attracted to Doc....but the script states...(approximately) "There is no woman for Doc Savage"...Gad!. Well, read the story anyway...you might like it if you've not seen anything better. When I saw this volume I bought six other under the influence of my initial ardor...none since. ~ Charles Howie
Doc Savage: The Polar Treasure and Pirate of the Pacific (Paperback)By Nostalgia Ventures (Apr 2007)
Too a large degree, the Doc Savage stories are an acquired taste. I was introduced during my tour in Iraq, when some blessed soul had sent, in a care package of books, several Doc Savage novels to my FOB. I recognized the name from my interest in pulps, and snagged them to read. They're most assuredly something from an earlier age--jazz era racism and cultural attitudes jar with modern mores. However, the adventures that Doc and his crew go on are rowsing, exciting, and generally fun. Additionally, Doc Savage is not a modern sort of hero--he has no flaws, admirable in all ways. A lad could do a lot worse then aspire to be like Doc Savage when he grows up. For exciting adventures, led by a true hero, one needs to look no further than Doc Savage. ~ Michael Short
Doc Savage: The Spook Legion And The Submarine Mystery (Paperback)By Nostalgia Ventures (Mar 2007)
The Spook Legion is one of the best stories reprinted from the 181 original pulp series. This captures the 1930's. Monk and Ham almost steals the lead from Doc Savage in this story. The Submarine Mystery is also a fine follow up story. If you like the Doc Savage pulp series then this is a must have reprint. ~ J. Hernández
Doc Savage: "Resurrection Day" and "Repel" (Paperback)By Nostalgia Ventures (Dec 2006)
"Resurrection Day" is certainly one of the most rip-roaring of all the Doc Savage novels Lester Dent ever wrote and he truly was at the top of his game here. Of course, the premise of resurrection day surely has to be regarded as the most audacious, nay preposterous, of any Doc Savage novel. Subterrenean civilizations, invisibility formulas, matter transportation machines, mind reading devices . . . all of these I can accept in order to enjoy a Doc story. But Doc restoring life to a body that has been dead for centuries? Hoo boy, this one is a little too big to swallow.
Doc Savage: "Fortress of Solitude" and "The Devil Genghis" (Paperback)By Nostalgia Ventures (Oct 2006)
Doc Savage stands as one of the most remarkable series in the history of heroic science fiction. Although little known to today's younger generation of sci-fi adventure, Doc's remarkable career as the star of his own monthly magazine through much of the 1930s and 40s surely places him in contention for the greatest adventure hero in the history of fiction. Certainly his record of derring-do, exploration, invention, crime fighting and mystery solving stack up against any other character that can be named. This career spans 182 novels (all but a handful written by his creator, the prolific Missouri pulp writer Lester Dent). And now with this brand new series of reprints, a new generation of readers is ready to discover Doc again.
