Lester Bernard Dent (1904-1959) was an American pulp fiction writer best known as the creator and main author of the series about the superhuman scientist and adventurer, Doc Savage. Dent began as a telegrapher for Western Union and later the Associated Press where he started writing while working the graveyard shift. His first publication in 1929 got him noticed by pulp publishers and he was hired and moved to New York. Among authors, Dent is known for his “Lester Dent Formula”, a guide for writing a salable 6,000-word pulp story.
Under the house name, Kenneth Robeson, the first issue of the Doc Savage Magazine in March 1933 was The Man of Bronze with Walter Baumhofer as illustrator. In the story, Doc Savage engages in deadly combat with the red-fingered survivors of an ancient, lost civilization. With his amazing crew he journeys to the mysterious “lost valley” to search for a fabulous treasure and destroy the mysterious Red Death. The story became the basis for the 1975 movie Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze.
We offer 12 other Doc Savage titles by Lester Dent, including The Mystic Mullah, Meteor Menace, and The Thousand-Headed Man. Come join us and proof a few pages to help us bring more public domain titles like these to Canada.
