Where does pulp end and the real begin? As Paul Malmont discuses the historical facts underpinning his fantastic and fantastical throwback pulp novel THE CHINATOWN DEATH CLOUD PERIL, he provides surprising answers to this question. THE SHADOW author Walter Gibson was a world-class magician, and married a woman who did a fortunetelling act with a chicken? Yes! The flesh-dripping zombies who chase DOC SAVAGE author Lester Dent through the pages of THE CHINATOWN DEATH CLOUD PERIL have a basis in historical fact? Well, you'd best hear the shocking answer to that one from Malmont himself. This podcast is brought to you by Clute and Edwards of www.noircast.net.
