|Doc Savage Returns in Horror in Gold|
Murray, who won acclaim for his tenure ghostwriting Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir’s Destroyer action-adventure series and his works of original fiction and pop culture history, knows his subject well.
The Wild Adventures of Doc Savage is a continuation of the well-received novels he wrote for Bantam Books back in the 1990s, which he worked on with Doc Savage’s creator and original writer, the late Lester Dent.
These new posthumous collaborations will be published under the familiar pen name of Kenneth Robeson.
The author hasn’t strayed far from Dent for the basis of this new tale.
“This story is based on an unused Doc Savage plot Lester Dent wrote in 1935, but was considered too visceral to be published in the pages of Doc Savage Magazine back then. To live up to its potential, I wrote the most jaw-dropping opening chapter of my 50-novel career. I introduce one of the most vicious super-criminals in pulp history, The Alchemist, and a half-forgotten members of the original Doc Savage cast returns after an absence of almost 80 years,” he said.
The book will be available in comic shops, bookstores and online.
