The Other Word Book for March: Chinatown Death Cloud Peril


I’m a few days late in getting his posted, but I don’t think anyone will have much difficulty in getting the March Other Word Book title and reading it by the time our discussion roles around at the end of the month.

This month I’ve pulled from my growing pile of prose books, The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril by Paul Malmont.

An astounding literary debut that brings a beloved genre of the past roaring into the Twenty-First Century. The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril casts the rivalry between two of pulp fiction’s most legendary writers into its own amazing saga which bursts from the pages with blood, cruelty, fear, mystery, vengeance, courageous heroes, evil villains, dames in distress, secret identities and disguises, global schemes, hideous deaths, beautiful broads, deadly superweapons, cliffhanging escapes, and other outrageous pulp lies that just might be completely true.

Ravaged by the devastation of the Great Depression, America turned to the pulp novels for relief, for hope, for heroes.

And the pulps delivered in spades.

The book was released May 23, 2006.
