This is the first of Edward M. Erdelac’s MERKABAH RIDER series of weird westerns.
LORD HORROR was never reprinted after its initial run (a large portion of which was confiscated by British police), making this one of the rarest and most sought-after horror novels of all time, and the most famous entry in Savoy Books’ multi-media Lord Horror saga.
This is the second of Kurodahan Press’ four volume LAIRS OF THE HIDDEN GODS anthology of Japanese Cthulhu Mythos, and, as with the first entry, it’s a first rate collection with excellent translations.
Here we have the first entry of a four volume English translation of this massive H.P. Lovecraft-inspired anthology, which initially appeared in Japan back in 2002.
The narrative, which takes the form of recollections by an ex-prison guard of his tenure as chaplain of some death row inmates back in the 1930s, is a highly episodic, flashback-packed ramble that takes its sweet time to work itself out.
The Frank Miller scripted, Bill Sienkiewicz illustrated ELEKTRA ASSASSIN, from Marvel’s adult-oriented offshoot Epic Comics, was a vital yet largely unheralded entry in the comics renaissance of the 1980s.

Here we have the first-ever unexpurgated English language version of French maestro Maurice Renard’s 1908 masterpiece DOCTOR LERNE, SUB-GOD. It’s the first entry in Black Coat Press’ five volume compendium of Renard’s “Scientific Marvel Fiction,” translated by science fiction legend Brian Stableford. Also contained in this book is Renard’s 1905 novella “Mr. Dupont’s Vacation” and his 1909 manifesto “Scientific Marvel Fiction and its Effect on The Consciousness of Progress.”
