BLACK DOG BOOKS ANNOUNCES NEW NON-FICTION LINE
Black Dog Books is set to launch a new line of critical studies centered on genre fiction from the golden era of the pulp magazines.
"Black Dog Books is pleased to offer these new and exciting titles to our readers. These quality nonfiction titles add a new supportive dimension to BDB's entire lineup," stated publisher Tom Roberts. "The addition of critical studies and other nonfiction works will allow us to expand our audience to include the academic and library markets and create an even greater following of our products showcasing the influence on popular culture of this type material."
Early titles in this new line will include The Men Who Made the Argosy, a collection of biographical and autobiographical essays about the writers and artists that contributed to Argosy magazine, and Night Master, a critical study of the The Shadow magazine and its creators by Robert Sampson.
Black Dog Books has been publishing vintage fiction since 1997. Many of its titles are works appearing in book form for the first time, including collections by classic authors such as The Good Die Young by Cornell Woolrich, or genre authors such as The Silver Menace by Murray Leinster, and Dead Men's Bones by Lester Dent (Doc Savage).
