    Doc Savage and team find themselves caught up in a mysterious adventure involving witches and other supernatural phenomena near Salem Corners Soon people are hexed and speaking gibberish including several of Doc’s own associates Millionaires are being targeted for major thefts including a good friend of Doc's But rest assured Doc is on the case and ready to utilize all his gadgets innovative methods and considerable fighting prowess to get to the bottom of what is really going onThis 39th Doc Savage adventure as the Bantam reprint editions number them was first published in 1939 and is the second installment written by William Bogart and is a definite improvement over his previous effort World's Fair Goblin He would go on to write a total of 14 Doc novels Bogart was a prolific writer of short stories for the pulps Many were used as backup stories to fill out issues of Doc Savage The Shadow and The Avenger but he never seemed to make it big He wrote a number of mystery novels most featuring a private eye named Johnny Saxon It is for Johnny Saxon that fans of hard boiled mystery novels remember Bogart but even in that arena he seems to be only a minor figureNevertheless his mystery skills are evident here in this story At the root of every Doc Savage yarn is a mystery centered around who is responsible for the current crime spree Sometimes it becomes pretty obvious early on but I thought this time around the suspense stayed in play most of the way through There are also some nice action scenes showing Doc cleverly out thinking and outmaneuvering the bad guys Most of the gang is here as well with the only exception being Long Tom Even Pat Savage makes an appearance albeit a minor oneI always enjoy a Doc Savage novel as a sort of pallet cleanser in between other reading and I don’t see that changing anytime soon

    Based on all the collective Bantam edition cover art you wouldn't be amiss in wondering if Doc Savage should lay off the fancy devices and try to invent a rip proof shirt

    The first Doc Savage story appeared in 1933 and the series ran in pulp and later digest format into 1949 Bantam reprinted the entire series in paperback with wonderful iconic covers starting in the 1960's Doc was arguably the first great modern superhero with a rich background continuity and mythos The characterizations were far richer than was common for the pulps; his five associates and their sometimes auxiliary Doc's cousin Pat and the pets Chemistry and Habeas Corpus all had very distinctive characteristics and their byplay was freuently entertaining that the current adventure of the month The settings were also fascinating Doc's Fortress of Solitude the Hidalgo Trading Company which served as a front for his armada of vehicles and especially the mysterious 86th floor headuarters all became familiar haunts to the reader and the far flung adventures took the intrepid band to exotic and richly described locations all over the world The adventures were always fast paced and exciting from the early apocalyptic world saving extravaganzas of the early days to the latter scientific detective style shorter works of the post World War Two years There were always a few points that it was difficult to believe along the way but there were always ups than downs and there was never ever a dull moment The Doc Savage books have always been my favorite entertainments I was always as Johnny would say superamalgamated

  4. Timothy Boyd Timothy Boyd says:

    Of all the pulp era heroes few stand out above the crowd Doc Savage is one of these With his 5 aides and cousin he adventures across the world Fighting weird menaces master criminals and evil scientists Doc and the Fab 5 never let you down for a great read These stories have all you need; fast paced action weird mystery and some humor as the aides spat with each other My highest recommendation

  5. Fraser Sherman Fraser Sherman says:

    A Halloween issue of Doc Savage magazine Engineers working on a new highway near Salem start going mad including Doc Savage's sidekick Rennie When Doc investigates witches with spooky names the Screeching Lady of the March multiplyIt's really very slight but it worked for me and the bad guys' special secret weapon is uite neat But it always feels like a waste when Doc's cousin Patricia shows up and doesn't do much

  6. Ronald Ronald says:

    read in summer 1969

  7. Freder Freder says:

    Starts out well but rapidly gets silly I saved this one for too long and looked forward to it too much I suppose

  8. Keith Bell Keith Bell says:

    Definitely one of the stranger of Doc's adventures Weird actually 5 for nostalgia though
