    Magazine tales from the 1920s, 30s and 40s. I enjoyed some of these stories very much. I like cheesy intense action and quick endings. I liked, say, "The Dogs of Purgatory" by Hugh Pendexter (1936). They have ridiculous, hilarious, titles made for catching attention on magazine covers. "Death Mates for the Lust-Lost" was cheesy but not terrible, but I do not even get what that title is about. I skipped the stories about apes and whipping. Mostly I gave this four stars because I adored the novell Magazine tales from the 1920s, 30s and 40s. I enjoyed some of these stories very much. I like cheesy intense action and quick endings.

    This was a great deal of fun, but take the publisher's warning to heart -- Not Politically Correct! The formatting is fine...didn't notice any typos or textual problems of any kind. The stories themselves are funny, twisted, and repulsive in turn. All are worth the time of the reader. I would remember that you don't sit down, as I did, and read all the stories back to back. Better to be ready something else at the same time and maybe read one story and then take a break.

FYI, these stories were meant to titillate and disturb...the erotic nature of the stories are now very dated, as is the race and gender relations...which is the kindest way possible to say that these stories will make the blood of some boil...those looking for cultural justice do not buy this book. Those looking for a window on the psyche of a vanished culture would do well to look at this book. Those looking for a dirty little secret might find this book interesting too. However, do not binge on the stories...one at a time with other reading material is the way to go. Recommended for aficionados of the Other, the Bizzare, and the downright weird.

    You have to manage your expectations here. One doesn't read pulp fiction expecting to find great literature (although a well-crafted story isn't totally out of the question). While this collection has stories by some respected writers - Ray Cummings, Hugh Cave among them - the admitted raison d'etre was to highlight stories with scintillating titles. Hence you'll find "Death-Mates for the Love Lost" and "Blood-Bait for Hungry Mermaids", among others. This is mind candy, fun to dip into but proba You have to manage your expectations here.

    I had a blast with this book with its unapologetic "chicks, terror and tentacles" ethos. Before there were tablets and streaming tv there were cheap magazines with lurid pictures and two bits worth of thrills. These stories are similar in style; setting the all important mood and the ghastly setting as well as the likely petrified woman and dauntless male hero. I aspire for mood in my own fiction and several times found myself jealous of some likely long dead hack sitting at an Underwood.

    I really liked the trashiness and how much it made me look up the dictionary. After you've gone through the first 3 or 4 stories or so, you'll begin to get a pattern: Macho adventurer + distressed dame and any combination of supernatural, detective, wild jungles or big game hunting (a.k.a I'm sick of hunting animals, let's release random prisoners and treat them as game). Add in a stock native or oriental and you're set. Excessive adverbs, florid descriptions, occasionally abrupt endings (the su I really liked the trashiness and how much it made me look up the dictionary.

The only really poorly written story was The Dead Book by Howard Hersey. The story is as dead as its title suggests. After an introduction that hints at a flashback, the rest of the story is entirely carried by dialogue. By one person. Damned if I'd ever want to read that story. The other 24 weren't fantastic, but I'd say they're quite fun in a "so-bad-its-good" way! For less than a buck ($0.99 on kindle), they're quite a steal, really.

    Adventure! High paced stories of intrigue, good and evil. Highly recommend this little mixer for those who need access to short stories that entertain. Stories range from classic good vs.evil to the more complex thriller or the harrowing romance.

    Lots of mad scientists, buxom women in tattered dresses, angry savages, rocket ships and "weasels ripped my flesh." A couple of standout pieces, but most kinda ran together after a while.
