Kenneth Robeson is…
From 1933 to 1949, “Kenneth Robeson” thrilled readers each month with the adventures of Clark “Doc” Savage and his courageous crew. Last year, the magazine ceased publication. Lester Dent, the man behind the pen name, wasn’t finished writing the adventures of Doc Savage. Hidalgo Press is pleased to help Dent take Doc Savage into the future in a new series of novels.
“I predict this series will last for generations!”Chuck
“It’s a great series. I hope Dent writes how Doc met his crew.”Philip
The brain behind the pen
From Dent's breakthrough adventure The Man of Bronze
There was death afoot in the darkness.
It crept furtively along a steel girder. Hundreds of feet below yawned glass-and-brick-walled cracks—New York Streets.
Down there, late workers scurried homeward. Most of them carried umbrellas, and did not look upward.
Even had they looked, they probably would have noticed nothing. The night was black as a cave bat. Rain threshed down monotonously. The clammy sky was like an oppressive shroud wrapped around the tops of the tall building.
The author of the influential Master Plot Formula
This is a formula, a master plot, for any 6000 word pulp story. It has worked on adventure, detective, western and war-air. It tells exactly where to put everything. It shows definitely just what must happen in each successive thousand words. No yarn of mine written to the formula has yet failed to sell. The business of building stories seems not much different from the business of building anything else.
Dent projects a new Savage novel each year
Lester Dent has planned the next four Doc Savage books — including the first ever Doc Savage short story collection! Readers will delight as Doc Savage takes on Nazis in Argentina, Communists in Hollywood, and a secret UFO base in Nevada.
