0 comments

There are unknown Things prowling the darkest patch of land on the planet. Haunted by creatures that might have emerged from the Hell’s lowest regions, ancient Ultra-Stygia has turned into a cauldron of conflict between rival countries. Monster bats careen through the night sky. Invisible Cyclopes patrol the scorched battleground. And a power beyond understanding robs men of their vision.

Can the 20th century’s premier scientist and superman untangle this Gordian knot of carnage before neighboring nations are drawn into an apocalyptic new world war? Or will the Man of Bronze succumb to an unstoppable power he himself has unleashed upon mankind?

From the frozen Arctic to the war-torn Balkans, Doc Savage and his fighting five follow a winding trail of terror to a blood-freezing climax.

0 comments

Men called it the Buddha’s Toe—a relic so terrible it was kept sealed in a strongbox few dared open. Those who did dare, perished—shriveled up like fruit in the tropical sun, all vitality and life-force sucked out of them by a thing whose thirst for human souls was insatiable.

What kind of treasure would motivate plutocrats and pirates alike to vie for the power invested in this unholy thing? What could be gained by unleashing it upon the world? Only superman-scientist Doc Savage understood the real threat, but to stop it he would have to become the Buccaneer of Bronze!

From cosmopolitan Singapore to the barbaric waters of the Yellow Sea, Doc Savage plunges into a desperate struggle for control of the Infernal Buddha—before it consumes the planet!

Harry Knowles (Ain’t it Cool News) recently spoke to Shane Black (Lethal Weapon) : “When I asked him what he was working on, he shocked me with the revelation that he was going to be writing a script for DOC SAVAGE, which Orci & Kurtzman (those STAR TREK, EAGLE EYE, TRANSFORMERS guys) were producing.”

Of course, that set Flearun abuzz. There’s more speculation at SlashFilm.com (Shane Black Scribing a Doc Savage Movie for Star Trek Producers) and FilmSchoolRejects.com (Shane Black Bringing ‘Doc Savage’ Back To The Big Screen?)

Doc’s Father: Bruce Willis
Patricia Savage: Liv Tyler

An intelligent, beautiful women with a sexy French accent enters your life… sounds like the start of a fairy tale, but when the sentence continues…and she loves reading Doc Savage as much as you do… you start looking around for Candid Camera. That really happened to me, and she was kind enough to give me a list of the Doc novels published in French and their original titles. (PS: She also married me. So it was a fairy tale…)

o your titles look odd?

There is a reason I’ve always used such an odd title for the novel entries.

Each title is preceded by two codes. The first four characters are the Bantam entry number for the novels I made 15 years (or so) ago. The Bantam number, and where needed, a letter signifying the book is part of a double or omnibus.

The next five characters are the month and year the original was published. (Or season where applicable.)

In Movabletype I could easily hide the code when publishing the title. I’m working on learning to do that now that I use Wordpress.

It will all make better sense when I reformat all my lists for the new design…
