THE CRIMSON BUTTERFLY
A Tale of Borneo by EDMUND SNELL
With an Introduction by John Pelan
Dancing Tuatara Press #48
Edmund Snell is known as the Father of the Fantastic Thriller because of the numerous yarns he published back in the early days of the 20th century about far-off exotic climes, like Borneo. That's the scene of this 1924 potboiler and Gavin L. O'Keefe has provided a catchy mapback of the island, in the style of the old 50s Dell mapbacks.
In his introduction, John Pelan tells all about the intriguing career of Edmund Snell in the pulps and elsewhere. See if this isn't a must-have classic for your pulp library.
