"The Monkey and the Ghost Ship" is now available as a PDF from Etsy. So that's something.




"The apocryphal graphic mini-novel (comic book) is now available on Etsy. Heretofore held in arrears by my own technological dullardry, this zesty tale of nautical hijinks is sure to impress someone, somewhere, if not you. We're talking like a hundred drawings for a dollar here, folks. Consider the bleak alternative, which is never knowing the truth about this particular topic, in stunning black and white."   -The Publisher

I still don't know what to do with the last couple of Noble Head Funnies.

The Amazing Ebert


I was just leafing through Amazing Stories, Vol. 30, No. 6, June, 1956, and found a letter from Roger Ebert of Urbana, Illinois. Roger writes:

"Dear Mr. Browne:
  The 30th Anniversary issue of AMAZING STORIES was superlative. The artwork was masterful, the predictions spellbinding, the stories themselves classics, and the overall issue the finest ever published by you..."



The issue Roger refers to would be that of April, 1956, which features "John Jones's Dollar" by Harry Stephen Keeler! Apparently Roger read it, granted it a place among the classics, enjoyed the masterful Visaphone illustration, and was spellbound by the predicted rise of the Psycho-Erg, all at the age of 13.


Read the story, if you haven't:

Oh, and here's the story Roger didn't like so much:

[Thank you, Clark, for the pulp magazines!]

And here's another letter to "Amazing Stories," from August, 1957, discovered by Ian Schoenherr!

Lipstick Traces

From NHF #4. You'll want to read the other 30 pages.



Quidvis recte factum, quamvis humile, praeclarum.

I don't think I've posted these two gags.

Great War Fluff

No publisher is interested in Mr. Kitty Fluff and his friends (I can't imagine why not!) so maybe I'll just post a page here from time to time.
