LAND OF ALWAYS NIGHT features a bizarre, 'Count Orlok' looking individual named Ool whose freakish finger floats hypnotically like a butterfly and can kill with a single touch. Ool tangles with Doc Savage and his stalwart gang of extraordinary gentleman on a search for a lost subterranean civilization.
NIGHT is straightforward pulp at its best. Nearly each chapter begins and climaxes with balls to the wall action. Plus gadgets, babes and high tech dirigibles all make their expected appearances. NIGHT was written by the legendary Lester Dent (Kenneth Robeson) with additional help from W. Ryerson Johnson.
Nostalgia Ventures has done a top job of repackaging NIGHT with another Savage adventure, MAD MESA. The Nostalgia reprint includes a "Meet The Writers" section with in depth biographies and B&W photos. A must-have for pulp aficionados. But be warned, I'm clearing off the shelf everywhere I find these books.
