Mundy, Talbot: Jimgrim. v1, 02 May 07
Some more Talbot Mundy!
[not my words]: "Mundy's highly exciting adventure stories featuring James Schuyler Grim, better known as Jimgrim. Jimgrim is an American secret service agent employed by the British and stationed in the Mid-East. His adventures, protecting British interests against the French and other countries meddling in the region following World War I, comprise one of the most interesting creations from the pulp magazines of the early 20th century."
And here's some more info - [not my words]: "Mundy was a born storyteller. Besides his predilection for creating tall tales around his early life as a scoundrel, Mundy could create larger than life heroes. Unlike creations like Robert E. Howard's "Conan" or Edgar Rice Burroughs' "John Carter of Mars," Mundy's heroes, while courageous and plenty brawny when the situation required it, were capable of bluffing, playing one enemy versus another, and exploiting the character flaws of foes, and the fortes of his associates -- traits largely absent in other adventure heroes of the time. Also, like Mundy himself, his characters pondered the meaning of life, of destiny, a spiritual development that would mold their characters and set them apart from the typical pulp heroes."
There's some exciting reading here.
I hope you enjoy it. Let me know if there are problems.

Sounds good - now added to my (increasingly lengthening) list of "must reads"!
Who needs new books when we've got all this great stuff?
