If you are 15 years old, and really bored, you may decide to count the words used in Doc Savage titles. You may even post this on the web for other fans to see. Boy, are you twisted…

Doc Savage on the Funny Pages

April 2, 2012 / 1 comment

We rarely feature Doc Savage material that doesn’t reside in the Hidalgo Trading Company. (Links get moved, sites close, and other problems just remind us it’s better to keep everything in-house.) That said, rush over to Rip Jagger’s Dojo to read The Return of Dave Cockrum’s Doc Savage — two weeks of Doc for the…

Just how long do you wait for that Doc Savage title to be reprinted by Bantam?


A 2000 Interview with Will Murray

February 11, 2012 / 0 comments

From the interview…

All of the books you wrote were based on his outlines?
Every one of them.

Does he have any left?
Yeah, I’ve got enough for about seven or eight books. I started about four of them when Bantam Books pulled the plug on the series in ’93.

That’s too bad.
It was too bad, especially since I was caught in the middle of several books. I dearly wish to finish them, and I expect I will at some point, for some publisher. I would love to come in and do some new ones because that also is where a lot of the interest lies.


Man of Blurb

Let’s face it. You picked up that first copy of Doc Savage and looked at the cover…you said “Cool”, “Neato”, or “Far Out” (depending on your age)…but you were sold when you read that blurb on the back. That’s what made you rush home to read your first Doc Savage. And we’ve interviewed* the man that wrote most of those one-paragraph classics….


Doc Savage Was Born on…

No, Phillip Jose Farmer didn’t already give us Doc’s birthday. He just looked at a old notebook. He didn’t do the research. On the other hand we did. And we can tell you that Doc’s birthday is….absolutely in this article.


202 05/16 Glare of the Gorgon

May 8, 2016 / 0 comments

Why did a desperate man shave his head before visiting Doc Savage headquarters, only to be struck down, his pulsing brain turned to inert stone? What sinister secret did his strange slaying silence? And how was a lizard-green shadow resembling Medusa branded on Doc’s office wall?

These are only some of the questions confronting the Man of Bronze as he pursues a grisly trail of petrified corpses to post-Prohibition Chicago, whose criminal underworld is being terrorized by a serpent-haired demon engaged in a seemingly senseless slaughter spree whose ultimate target will shake Doc Savage’s men to their core.

Suspects are many, clues baffling. Death and danger lurks everywhere they turn—symbolized by the silhouette of a faceless Gorgon.

From the concrete canyons of Manhattan to the coal fields of Illinois, Doc Savage tracks a phantom fiend the likes of which he has never before hunted. Or is he the one being hunted?

201 11/15 The Secret of Satan’s Spine

May 1, 2016 / 0 comments

When a vivacious blonde convinces Monk Mayfair to skip an important sea voyage to London, and instead run off to her Louisiana plantation, Ham Brooks is very suspicious.

After Doc Savage enters the picture, things start popping. As in fists and guns. Finding themselves on a steamship bound for the Caribbean, Doc, Ham, and a reluctant Monk become embroiled in wartime intrigue surrounding the question of who is desperately trying to keep them off the Northern Star, and why?

From New York City to the Bahama Banks, Doc Savage and his mighty men follow the trail, making new allies along the way, until they plunge into a hurricane of horror only some will survive….


200 05/15 The Sinister Shadow

June 18, 2015 / 0 comments

When millionaire Lamont Cranston and attorney Ham Brooks are kidnapped by gunmen driving a black hearse, it spells trouble for Doc Savage. Trouble with compound interest when Cranston’s personal lawyer is mysteriously murdered before he can consult with celebrated criminologist George Clarendon—who is secretly The Shadow!

These strange events put the Man of Bronze and the Dark Avenger on a collision course that threatens to expose the deepest secrets of both supermen. The conflict intensifies when underworld figure Cliff Marsland is captured and shipped off to Doc’s secret Crime College!

Will these legendary crimefighters join forces—or will the diabolical Funeral Director have the last laugh on Doc Savage and The Shadow?
