Lionel Fanthorpe Introduction Page. If I were to ask you to guess the Science-Fiction author who produced the most content in the shortest amount of time, who would you guess?

Lionel Fanthorpe Introduction Page

Asimov? Heinlein? Piers Anthony? None of those guesses even comes close! To meet his grueling deadlines, Fanthorpe employed an unusual technique. Other novels had to be padded to reach the necessary length. But despite all these faults, Fanthorpe managed to include his own positive world-view into even the darkest story. Badger Books would send Fanthorpe a cover painting, often the more lurid the better (see the Cover Gallery for examples). On several occasions the cover art used on a Badger was originally published on another book. What does Fanthorpe think now about his work and how it is recieved? So what does an author do today about the one-every-week, at-the-drop-of-a-hat paperbacks he wrote in his spare time forty-odd years ago? © 1995 R.

When I decided to organize a new edition of Clare Winger Harris’s stories, I knew I wanted to see the place she once lived in Lakewood, Ohio. What’s to push, anyway?

Rough Edges. THE RIO KID WESTERN has long been one of my favorite Western pulps.

Rough Edges

I discovered the Rio Kid character through paperback reprints published by Curtis Books during the Seventies, read many of those, and went on to collect and read quite a few of the original pulps. The Rio Kid is Captain Bob Pryor, former Union cavalry officer, who wanders through the West with his sidekick Celestino Mireles in the years following the Civil War, getting into all sorts of adventures. The “gimmick”, if you will, of this series is that the novels are placed in historical settings and always feature historical characters in supporting roles. THE COMSTOCK LODE is an early Rio Kid novel from the October 1940 issue of the magazine, although I read it in the Curtis Books paperback edition.

That's my copy in the scan. I think I read this one thirty-some-odd years ago, but I didn’t remember anything about the plot, which doesn’t really matter because it’s pretty predictable anyway.
