PULP GALLERY
In the pulp fantasy and science fiction field, John Coleman and Hulbert collaborated on two novelettes, The Man Without A World and The Lightning Men, which appeared in the June 1939 and February 1940 issues of Thrilling Wonder Stories. They then wrote a novel, The Bottom of the World, which appeared in the September 1941 issue of Startling Stories complete with seven illustrations by JCB. Hybrid of Horror, written in collaboration with Jane Ralston Burroughs, appeared as the feature novelette in the July 1940 issue of Thrilling Mystery. Whitman Books published a John Carter story in a Better Little Book in 1940 with story, cover and illustrations by JCB. An expanded re-working of this story would eventually appear in the January 1941 and April 1961 issues of Amazing Stories as John Carter and the Giant of Mars. It then appeared in the book, John Carter of Mars, published by Canaveral Press and Ballantine Books

"The Weasank'll get you if you don't watch out.


Inter-chaotic dot and dash man armed with reversable free-wheeling three-in-one semi-cataclysmic cap pistol 
discharging ultra marine parabolic detonating death rays at 2 cents a word."
