NEMESIS MAGAZINE #1: Gun Moll in Tentacles of Evil

Description

First Issue of a New 1930s-Style Pulp Magazine!

In Nemesis Magazine, writes Rod MacDonald in SFCrowsnest, each issue features one of four "valiant ladies from different eras acting as the nemesis to various threatening forces including crime and evil. Names such as Rachel Rocket and Gun Moll come to the fore. It's all ripping stuff—this isn't an old pulp novel—it's modern stuff written by Stephen Adams who also does the evocative cover artwork."

The lead novels, MacDonald says, are "well-written—the action scenes were realistic and the dialogue easy flowing and believable. This type of fantasy isn't my normal reading but I found it light and entertaining. However, [the lead story] doesn't come on its own." There are also "reprints from old pulp magazines—these give a wonderful insight into attitudes and beliefs of that illusory and enigmatic period of time between the wars ... ripping stuff."

Nemesis #1 stars the blazing exploits of Gun Moll, the beautiful Undercover Nemesis of Crime whose brain is constantly working behind an expressionless face like a white, porcelain mask.

In "Tentacles of Evil", Gun Moll uncovers a plot in which Dr. Sin Lo, a fiendish super-genius, spins a web of crime and intrigue designed to bring the future of civilization itself into his clutches. To defeat his evil plan, she calls upon the help of Rocky Brannigan, the gangster warlord; Jingles, her loyal, brutish chauffeur; Flynn, the uncompromising old cop who dotes on her like a daughter; Calpurnia, her feisty maid; and the debased slave girls of Sin Lo's opium den. Failure means nothing less than the downfall of the United States of America!

Here is the first of Gun Moll's no-holds-barred battles with the Dr. Sin Lo to save the world from being strangled by his Tentacles of Evil! Plus A Nick Bancroft mystery by Bob Liter, "The Greensox Murders" by Jean Marie Stine, and a classic mystery short reprinted from the heyday of the pulps.

NEMESIS MAGAZINE #2: Rachel Rocket in Hell Wings Over Manhattan

Description

The Pulp Thrills Continue In This All-New 1930s Style Magazine!

Fans of The Spider, Doc Savage, and The Shadow won't want to miss the second pulse-pounding issue of Nemesis, featuring Rachel Rocket, the Winged Nemesis of Foreign Terror, in the book-length novel of Nazi treachery in the skies, "Hell Wings over Manhattan."

It's the late 1930s, and enemy spies have honeycombed the cities of the United States with their corrupting burrows. Like termites, they shun the light of liberty, even while they seek to snuff it out and replace it with the sinister darkness of Fascism. Their leader–The Demolition Master–and his Fifth Columnists launch an assault of death and destruction upon the heart of New York City. This merciless agent of the Gangster Nations rains terror down on to the great metropolis with an unstoppable armada of explosives-laden robot planes, and all a helpless populace can do is watch the skies and prepare to evacuate the city. But the American spirit of youth and freedom refuses to submit meekly. Rachel Rocket, the beautiful, red-headed pilot, and her comrades have vowed to man the nation's defenses against the threat of Totalitarianism.

When Nazi treachery puts her best friend, Dr. Mitzi Rowan, in a hospital room hovering between life and death, and lays her partner, Hank Rowan, low with a gangster's bullet in his body, Rachel Rocket must take to the skies alone to save America from the evil plans of a mad Axis dictator and his evil henchmen.

Aided only by her skill and daring, Rachel pits herself against gangster hordes, the Axis' greatest aerial Aces, and the masked spymaster from an enslaved, central European country, when the heavens explode and "Hell Wings Over Manhattan."

Plus spine-tingling science fiction stories, including EPPIE nominee Stefan Vucak's "Hunger," author J. D. Crayne's disturbing "Point of View," Hugo Award winner Larry Niven's "No Exit," written with Jean Marie Stine, and a classic novelette of space ship mystery by the king of space opera, Edmond Hamilton.

NEMESIS MAGAZINE #3: Victory Rose in The Furher’s Final Trumpet

Description

One Woman Warrior Against Hitler's Death Machines!

In December of 1941, the U.S. was forced into the boiling cauldron of World War II. Willing but still unready for the task at hand, the nation geared up for the greatest military conflict of all time. Within weeks, a new kind of soldier appeared on the scene—Major Victoria Rose Hardwyck (a.k.a. Victory Rose).

Her origins were labeled "Top Secret," and they remain classified in government files even to this day. When the first accounts of her heroic battles against Nazi tyranny leaked to an incredulous public, Victory Rose, Nemesis of Axis Tyranny, was thought to be a legend, her figure barely glimpsed in flashes of gunfire. As the true accounts of her exploits were released as a morale builder, America found herself with a new ally and a powerful weapon in the war against the Axis.

Now, as Nazi Germany totters on the verge of collapse, Victory Rose and her unit are given their most challenging assignment: fly to Berlin and steal or destroy the newest and greatest of the German Wonder Weapons. In a last ditch effort to halt the Allied advance, Nazi scientists have created the War Trumpet, a device capable of knocking out electronic devices all along the battlefront and leaving the Allied Army at the mercy of a devastating counterattack.

Trapped alone in the besieged German capital of Berlin, Victory Rose fights for her life against SS execution squads, faces the fury of a frenzied mob, and locks horns with Schickelgruber himself, Adolf Hitler, in his bunker deep beneath the city. To survive she must form an uneasy alliance with Russian commandoes led by her old flame, Alexei Kruszynski.

But the game becomes more complicated when Victory Rose discovers that to accomplish her mission, she will not only have to recover the secrets of Nazi technology for the Allies, but keep it out of the hands of the Communists as well. For gripping World War II action, read "The Fuhrer's Final Trumpet," a pivotal episode in the saga of Victory Rose!

Plus: A trio of classic jungle tales from the heyday of the pulps, including full-length adventures of those legendary jungle men, Ki-Gor, Lord of the Jungle (in "Nirvana of the Seven Voodoos") and Kwa, King of the Apes. Illustrated with classic pulp art.

Cover design: Stephen Adams.

Description

Meet the Eeriest Villainess in Suspense Fiction!

Nemesis, the contemporary pulp magazine, continues with another book-length Gun Moll novel, featuring America's Undercover Nemesis of Crime against The Angel with No Hands, plus new and classic mystery short stories.

It's the 1920s and Giselle, a beautiful but treacherous French double agent, is captured by her vengeful countrymen and sentenced to one of history's grimmest fates. Soon she earns a new and deadlier name—Giselle sans Mains ("without hands")—one that strikes terror in to the hearts of all who hear it. For no one is more ruthless in their pursuit of crime, and her lust for mass destruction leaves a trail of slaughter wherever she goes.

Now sans Mains has exported her genius for evil to America and plans to wreck the nation's economy and spread death throughout its cities. As bombs explode and buildings burn, only Gun Moll, America's Undercover Nemesis of Crime, the woman with ice in her veins, stand between Giselle sans Mains and the helpless population of New York. But can even Gun Moll's cool, calculating brain find a way to defeat such a pitiless foe, especially when all of New York's gangsters are lined up behind her?

Stephen Adam's Angel with No Hands is a nonstop rollercoaster of action and suspense that carries Gun Moll straight into the torturer's den where the price of victory may be her own death! Plus new and classic mystery short stories including a never-reprinted adventure of the "first and best of blind detectives," Max Caraddos.

MADAM NINON: A Science Fiction Novel by Larry Maddock

Description

Did She Offer Humanity Hope—or Hellfire?

Who was the mysterious sex therapist known only as "Madam Ninon"?

"A breakthrough science fiction classic whose exploration of humanity's sexual mores bares comparison with Candide and Stranger in a Strange Land." —Jean Marie Stine, author, Season of the Witch.

Science fiction writer and satirist Larry Maddock's lost masterpiece. Written contemporaneously with Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land, it shares uncanny parallels with that more famous tome. In Madam Ninon, a naïf encounters a messianic figure who teaches her followers to engage in freer sex as a means to become fully human.

Released a few months after Stranger, Madame Ninon was not merely overshadowed by Heinlein's success, it was unnoticed, even among the author's own circle of writers and artists. The original paperback's microscopic printing and the fact that it was distributed by a small publisher to a handful of adult bookstores—for an audience who can hardly have been interested in the author's intricate meditations on midcentury sexual conventions and inhibitions—further ensured the resounding silence that greeted its publication.

Yet Madame Ninon is just the kind of novel which Larry Maddock—Agent of T.E.R.R.A. author, science fictioneer, sexologist, and social critic that he was—might have been expected to write.

Inspired by the author's reading of the life and writings of 17th century courtesan Madam Ninon De Lenclos, whose legendary "School of Gallantry" taught the arts of love to the young men and women of France, the book's pungent verbal duels offer the perfect vehicle for Larry Maddock's private speculations on sex and sexuality.
