Marvel Tales eBook
May 1940
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 Tales came from a science fiction background, but a change in editorial policy turned it into a "weird menace" pulp. There was still a slight carry-over from its science fiction days, but most of the stories leaned toward the shudder-pulp fare typically found in Terror Tales, Horror Stories and Dime Mystery Magazine. Western Fiction Publishing Co. gave this new direction a test with the first issue in December 1939. But it quickly saw the error in its ways, and made changes after only two issues. In November of 1940, the magazine name was changed to Marvel Stories and it returned to its science fiction roots. Marvel Tales remains, then, as a short-lived experiment in the shudder pulp genre. Marvel Tales returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
Table of Contents:
Eerie Book-Length Horror Novel
Mistress of Machine-Made Madness
by Nils O. Sonderlund
The ghastly flare of the SUBTERRANE’S disruptor disk thrust Weston Craig back four years to rendezvous with Ann Tancred’s stark loveliness, and neither the brain-spanning scope of the mad scientist’s metal mole nor the lusting devices of the fiend, could now salvage the world’s greatest new industry and crown Ann queen of Satan’s underground empire!
World Without Sex — Breath-Taking Novelette
by Robert O. Wentworth
In twenty-four hours the male sex would end, the last male in the world would be dead — unless Rann Haddan faced the ruling females with the tactics his forefathers had used four thousand years ago!
The Test-Tube Monster — Breath-Taking Novelette
by George E. Clark
This test tube creature was no mere miracle of ultra-science, this was the most beautiful girl Graeme Mansfield had ever known, and he’d sell his soul to hell before he’d yield her to the test-tube monster who chose her as his mate!
Princess of Power — Breath-Taking Novelette
by Frederic A. Kummer, Jr.
Here was Targash, mightiest of the seven kingdoms of evil and tyranny, here was Zora, Princess of Power!... Aye, Ulf the Northman could have his conquest now, could claim this sin-lost land for its own fear-frozen people, could claim the lovely Zora for his bride!
Fresh Fiancés for the Devil’s Daughter — Breath-Taking Novelette
by Russell Gray
The unholy lust, the unspeakable orgies, the hideous tortures would have sufficed to damn my soul — but this vampire luring me worshiped evil, enshrined it, until virtue was to be despised, and vileness was all I lived for!
