    As there is no description of this book, this review will stand in for that. Doctor Death was a short-lived 'villian pulp'. That is, a pulp magazine (cheap fiction magazine of the early 20th century) devoted to a single character, in this case, a villian rather then a hero. Doctor Death was published by Dell Magazines in 1935. It was a retitling of their prior "All Detectives" magazine, and just before the retitle they ran 4 stories about ANOTHER "Doctor Death" villian. You can read those stories in the "Complete Doctor Death in All-Detective" ALSO published by Altus Press. Doctor Death ran 3 issues and was cancelled. ALL 3 issues are reprinted in the first volume. 2 more were written, and those are reprinted in the this volume. These 2 novels previously saw print in pulp fanzines, so this is the first time these 2 have more wider availability. The 2 novels are "Waves of Madness" and "The Red Mist of Death". All stories were published... More > under the 'house pseudonym' of "Zorro", but were really written by Harold Ward, a long-time pulp author. Doctor Death was really a crazy scientist named "Dr. Rance Mandarin". He felt the earth was overpopulated, and so to deal with that, went after the human race with a variety of evil means. He basically wanted to reduce the population and return us to the stone age. He was opposed by Jimmy Holm, a millionarie and criminologist, backed by a secret group of 12 that included the US President.< Less
