The Adventures of Curt Flagg.

SKU: 978-1884449154 Categories: , , Tags: , , ,


Fast and furious excitement from the author of Doc Savage!

Fists of Fury collects the two-fisted adventures of Curt Flagg, Lester Dent’s fist great series character from the pages of the extremely rare Scotland Yard magazine. These stories are in many ways prototypes for the characters and situations for which Dent became famous when penning the escapades of Doc Savage a few years later.

With an introduction by historian Will Murray, this book of previously uncollected material also features appendices of background material, outlines and story submission notes from Dent’s personal papers, in addition to correspondence and previously unpublished photos of the author.
