Torn from the pages of the first and foremost pulp magazine, the fabled Argosy, and chosen from among thousands of stories by premier pulp authority, Robert Weinberg!
Argosy magazine was the first and most influential pulp magazine of the 20th century. At its height, it was published each and every week, and contained a veritable cornucopia of fabulous fiction in all genres. Detective and mystery stories. Westerns. Love stories. Sports. Even science-fiction and fantasy filled its pages. Esteemed writers ranging from Edgar Rice Burroughs to Erle Stanley Gardner graced its beloved pages.
Now Radio Archives is delving into the pages of this celebrated magazine in an effort to present some of the best feature fiction Argosy presented during its near-century of publication. Overseeing this production is one of the great scholars of the pulp era, novelist Robert Weinberg. “Radio Archives is issuing the best of the pulps in audio and eBook format,” he says. “It’s a pleasure to work with them, bringing back some of the greatest action fiction ever published for modern fans!”
