    About "Kenneth Robeson Harold A. Davis"

    1. Kenneth Robeson Harold A. Davis

      Kenneth Robeson was the house name used by Street and Smith Publications as the author of their popular character Doc Savage and later The Avenger Though most Doc Savage stories were written by the author Lester Dent, there were many others who contributed to the series, including William G Bogart Evelyn Coulson Harold A Davis Lawrence Donovan Alan Hathway W Ryerson Johnson Lester Dent is usually considered to be the creator of Doc Savage In the 1990s Philip Jos Farmer wrote a new Doc Savage adventure, but it was published under his own name and not by Robeson Will Murray has since taken up the pseudonym and continued writing Doc Savage books as Robeson All 24 of the original stories featuring The Avenger were written by Paul Ernst, using the Robeson house name In order to encourage sales Kenneth Robeson was credited on the cover of The Avenger magazine as the creator of Doc Savage even though Lester Dent had nothing to do with The Avenger series In the 1970s, when the series was extended with 12 additional novels, Ron Goulart was hired to become Robeson.

    1. I have consistently mentioned the author — that month's "Kenneth Robeson" — in reviews of Doc Savage novels because it's the easiest quality check. So "The Green Death," a Harold A. Davis tale from November 1938, naturally falls short because it's not by Lester Dent and is, well, a Davis.While not absolutely bottom-of-the-barrel Davis, this one is not good. Here we have a South American jungle malady that causes its victims to turn green with, not envy, but some form of rot/mummification. On [...]


    2. 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 d [...]


    3. 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.


    4. A better than average Doc Savage novel. No one will ever mistake this pulp adventure with airships and a lost, albeit tiny, civilization in South America as great literature, but for 30s pulp fun it's hard to beat.


    5. A perfectly readable Doc Savage novel involving bad guys chasing for a fabulous secret buried in the jungles of the Matto Grosso, but it's also perfectly trite. Nothing I haven't seen before, and nothing that couldn't be done just as well by countless other pulp adventurers.
