Marvel Science Stories eBook
August 1939
Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
Marvel Science Stories! The name alone conjures up visions of science-fiction thrills. When science fiction surged in popularity in the 1930s, Western Fiction Publishing Co., never ones to ignore a trend, jumped into the genre with both feet. Mystery Tales, Detective Mysteries, Marvel Tales and others were all part of their stable of magazine titles. Only five issues were published of Marvel Science Stories beginning with the August 1938 issue. Starting with the December 1939 issue, the title of the magazine changed to Marvel Tales for two issues and took on a "weird menace" slant, then returned to its science fiction roots under the title of Marvel Stories... for another two issues. The April 1941 issue was the final one... until the magazine was revived in late 1950. Marvel Science Stories presents a compelling view of science fiction before it truly hit its stride, written by some of pulp's most seasoned authors. Marvel Science Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
Table of Contents:
Book-Length Daring Novel
Dark Invasion
by Frederic Arnold Kummer, Jr.
No, this was not just an improved razor-blade disintegrator, this was no mere gadget that John Marker had invented. Though only an ordinary run-of-the-mine engineer, John Marker had overnight given the world a new era, had advanced the world’s progress ten thousand years — and doomed his own lovely Marcia to the death-spawning ray-sun of far Mercury!
An Unusual Novelet
Hour of Judgment
by R. DeWitt Miller
The note was written on ordinary paper, had come in a plain envelope. But it had the same strange rose-hued radio-active glow as the notes the other four would-be-world-rulers had received, it presaged as they had, death for the madman who would plunge the world into war!
Disappearing Sam — Scintillating Short Story
by R.R. Winterbotham
How could even the vast resources of the famous Interplanetary Police be a match for a super-scientific criminal who knew how to make himself invisible?
Dust — Scintillating Short Story
by Lloyd Arthur Esbach
In bringing to Earth this vast store of radium, with its infinite power for good and evil, would Jerry Blaine be fostering the eternal salvation of mankind — or speeding mankind on to ghastly self-annihilation?
Lightning Strikes Once — Scintillating Short Story
by Harl Vincent
In Kardel’s words, it was the focussing of a projector so as to direct a slender beam of energy fo one of the cold air layers above the earth — in Mary May’s words, it was murder!
