The Green Lama: The Complete Pulp Adventures Book Launch
Om! Ma-ni pad-me Hum! The first of its kind, the complete adventures of the Green Lama follows the adventures of Buddhist Jethro Dumont and his aides as they battle the forces of evil in the western world. Written by Kendell Foster Crossen, it’s non-stop action in the vein of The Shadow! Never completely reprinted before, the series is collected in three volumes. Each volume contains an all-new introduction, focusing on a different aspect of the character’s life across several forms of popular media. Volume Three features an introduction by radio historian Martin Grams, Jr. and contains the final four stories: "The Case of the Fugitive Fingerprints," "The Case of the Crooked Cane," "The Case of the Hollywood Ghost," and "The Case of the Beardless Corpse." Also included is an all-new epilogue by Adam Lance Garcia and Mike Fyles: "The Case of the Final Column."
About the Author
Adam Lance Garcia, one of the youngest New Pulp writers, exploded onto the scene in 2009 with his first novella Green Lama: Horror in Clay. Written as a gift for his father, Horror in Clay was nominated for Best Short Story in the 2009 Pulp Factory Awards. Adam’s follow up novel, Green Lama: Unbound, took away two 2010 Pulp Factory Awards: Best Novel of the Year and Best Interior Art (thanks to the artwork of his frequent collaborator, Mike Fyles).
Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Adam was raised on golden age comic books, movie serials, and Star Wars. Adam credits this atypical upbringing to his passion for writing the Green Lama, a character he hopes to introduce a younger generation while staying true to the spirit of the original pulp novels and comics.
