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…

0 Interview with Will Murray

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.
