The Complete Adventures of Cordie, Soldier of Fortune (2-Volume Deluxe Edition)

Clearly an inspiration for the creation of Doc Savage, the sagas of Jimmie Cordie and his crew are finally collected in a Deluxe Edition set of hardcovers. Written by one of the most popular authors to appear in the pages of Argosy, W. Wirt, this two-volume series collects all 26 stories in long-running series of adventure in Asia (and on occasion, anywhere else in the world where there was treasure to be found). Each story also includes all of the original pulp illustrations by artists such as Samuel Cahan, Roger B. Morrison, John R. Neill and Paul Stahr.

Clearly an inspiration for the creation of Doc Savage, the sagas of Jimmie Cordie and his crew are finally collected in a Deluxe Edition set of hardcovers. Written by one of the most popular authors to appear in the pages of Argosy, W.

Each story also includes all of the original pulp illustrations by artists such as Samuel Cahan, Roger B. Morrison, John R. Neill and Paul Stahr.

Volume 1 collects all of the Jimmie Cordie stories from 1928 and 1933: “He’s a Good Little Guy at That,” “The Major Wanted Him Alive,” “According to My Size and Disposition,” “Private Property,” “The Jewel in the Lotus,” “When Tigers Are Hunting,” “That Fish Thing,” “Right Smack At You!,” “I’m Shootin’ Vely Good,” “The River Lies in Front,” “What Kept You?,” “The Death Spell of Nong Chik,” “The Nine Red Gods Decide,” “He’s My Meat!,” “Jades and Afghans,” “Aztec Treasure,” “War Dragons,” “The Devil’s Tattoo,” and “A Manchu Robin Hood.”

Volume 2 collects all of the Jimmie Cordie stories from 1928 and 1933: “The Face in the Rock,” “Ammunition Up!,” “The White War Lords,” “The Mad Monks,” “The Assassin,” “Thy Son Grows Cold,” “How Do You Spoke a Gun?,” “War Lord of Many Swordsmen,” “Swords Are Out!,” “The City of Japheth,” and “The Guns of the American.”

Also included are all four of W. Wirt’s stories of Norcross, another adventure series from Argosy which was part of the same shared universe as his Jimmie Cordie stories. As well as an all-new introduction which finally—after 95 years—reveals the author behind the mysterious “W. Wirt” pseudonym.

Written by W. Wirt; introduction by Matthew Moring; afterword by Robert Sampson; illustrated by Samuel Cahan, Roger B. Morrison, John R. Neill and Paul Stahr
