THE COMPLETE TALES OF JULES DE GRANDIN, VOLUME TWO

by Seabury Quinn; read by Andrew Eiden

From pulp fiction writer Seabury Quinn comes the second volume of his works, The Devil’s Rosary, which includes all of the Jules de Grandin stories from The Black Master to The Wolf of St. Bonnot, as well as an introduction by Jim Rockhill.

Today the names of H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, August Derleth, and Clark Ashton Smith, all regular contributors to the pulp magazine Weird Tales during the first half of the twentieth century, are recognizable even to casual readers of the bizarre and fantastic. And yet despite being more popular than them all during the golden era of genre pulp fiction, there is another author whose name and work have fallen into obscurity: Seabury Quinn.

Quinn’s short stories were featured in well more than half of Weird Tales’ original publication run. His most famous character, the supernatural French detective Dr. Jules de Grandin, investigated cases involving monsters, devil worshippers, serial killers, and spirits from beyond the grave, often set in the small town of Harrisonville, New Jersey.

Collected for the first time, The Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin, edited by George Vanderburgh, presents all ninety-three published works featuring the supernatural detective. Presented in chronological order, this is the definitive collection of an iconic pulp hero.

21 cds, 25.5 hours, unabridged.

Reviews/Praise

"Hercule Poirot meets Fox Mulder . . . gruesomely effective, and purists who object to detective stories with paranormal elements will find that the moment each story crosses the border to the supernatural raises genuine shivers." ―Kirkus 

“Connoisseurs of pulp adventure . . . will be delighted.” ―Publishers Weekly
