Atomic Werewolves and Man-Eating Plants

Sunday , 10, December 2023 Leave a comment

New Texture has been producing very well made books of contents from the men’s adventure magazines including story collections, themed anthologies, and art books. The newest is Atomic Werewolves and Man-Eating Plants. This is a themed anthology of weird fiction and “true stories” from 1953 to 1966.

The first three entries are non-fiction pieces. Mike Chomko and Stefan Dziemianowicz’s pieces are nice short histories on the pulp magazine Weird Tales. Wyatt Doyle and Robert Deis cover the weird in the men’s adventure magazines.

There are a few reprints including H. P. Lovecraft, Manly Wade Wellman, and Theodore Sturgeon. Readers also get a science fiction story by Gardner F. Fox, his only story ever in Adventure. As per usual, the MAM stories and “true stories” are short and fun. There are stories with werewolves, giant tarantulas, man-eating lizards, mad scienetists etc. This is 293 pages of short hits of entertainment. All stories have color reproductions of the original magazine cover appearances and interior illustrations.

Layout as general is excellent. The size of the print is enough that I don’t have to wear reader glasses!

You can get Atomic Werewolves and Man-Eating Plants in either hardback or trade paperback.
