Eric of the Strong Heart (The Argosy Library)
Victor Rousseau’s Lost Race epic is finally available in book from, complete and uncut. Eric Silverstein had long suffered from nightmares of the mythical Ragnarok, but he never suspected he’d learn Ragnarok was very real. Attending a freak show in New York, Eric meets a strange woman who speaks Anglo-Saxon and becomes involved in her escape from captivity. Who is she? And what is her connection to two warring lost races, King Harald, and the ancient prophecies?
Victor Rousseau was the author of several classic science fiction adventures, and Eric of the Strong Heart—as it originally appeared in Railroad Man’s Magazine—is one of his rarest, and best.

The Complete Adventures of Koyala, Volume 1 (The Argosy Library)
Rated by the readers of The All-Story Magazine as one of the most popular series to ever appear in that fabled pulp title, the stories of adventurer Peter Gross reached their pinnacle during a subseries of novels featuring Koyala, the mysterious Argus Pheasant of Borneo. These South Seas adventures cross genres with the then-popular “Yellow Peril” stories.
Volume 1 collects the first two novels, “The Argus Pheasant” (1917) and “Koyala the Beautiful” (1918).

The Finding of Lot’s Wife
The mountains near the Dead Sea hide a forgotten people… Quite possibly the best lost race story ever published. Out of print since 1896, it’s another edition in the Altus Press Lost Race Library.
Yellow Men Sleep
Join explorer Con Levington as he searches for a lost civilization in the Gobi desert. Originally published as “The Fragrant Web” in All-Story Weekly in 1919. A lost classic of the Lost Race genre. Another book in the Altus Press Lost Race Library.
Wings of Danger
Join the expedition as a lost colony of Vikings is discovered in East Africa; Wings of Danger is one of the best Lost Race stories from the pulps. Originally published as “The Adventurers” in Adventure in 1915, it’s another edition in the Altus Press Lost Race Library.
Under the Andes
Before Nero Wolfe, Rex Stout wrote this lost race story for Argosy in 1914. An engaging thriller, this is one of the all-time best lost race stories from the pages of the pulps. It’s another deluxe edition in the Altus Press Lost Race Library.
A Man Named Jones
Written by pulp veteran Charles B. Stilson as a follow-up to his successful “Polaris of the Snows” trilogy, available for the first time in one volume. Part of the Altus Press Lost Race Library.
In “A Man Named Jones,” a very drunk Jones awakening to find a dead man under his table holding a large, raw emerald and the photograph of a lovely white women surrounded by Polynesians fiercely protecting her South Seas island from visitors. He vows to rescue the woman from her island prison, not knowing that the crew he’s sailing with are as vicious a band of pirates imaginable.
“Land of the Shadow People” picks up the story some years later when Jones is blackmailed into once again searching for the source of the mysterious emerald. What he finds is a strange race of chameleon people desperate to preserve the secret of their existence. Written in a crisp, modern style these two novels will provide hours of enjoyment.
