Halloween is here. If you’re still looking for a last-minute jack-o-lantern idea, how about crafting a pulp-o-lantern?
I dusted off a post from three year’s back with a link on ThePulp.Net’s Facebook page a week ago, but never got around to linking to it again here at Yellowed Perils. Back in 2013, I resurrected several stencils for pulp pumpkin carvings that I had originally published in 2006.
If you’re carving one of these pulp-o-lanterns — or a pulp-related design of your own — please send along a photograph (or post on in the comments below the pumpkin link on TPN’s Facebook page). I would be thrilled to share them with fellow pulp fans.
Have a safe and fun Halloween!Read More

According to a story at Deadline: Hollywood, the proposed series centers on Alice Benson, who thanks to “genetic bio-hacking” allows her to alter her appearance.
I’ve always thought that The Avenger would be one of the best candidates for updating as a TV series. I don’t have a problem changing Richard Benson to Alice Benson. But, as it always seems, who needs to use the original story when you can just turn it into whatever you want (a “biopunk version,” in this instance).
Hat-tip to Fred Kuentz.Read More

Today’s post takes a different approach from most at Yellowed Perils. It’s more of a roundup of items I want to call your attention to.
I’ve enjoyed Barry’s enthusiasm for one of my favorite pulp heroes. It’s clearly one of his favorites, too. (Now if Barry would only start using a shock-mounted microphone.)Read More
Hmm. Chris Hemsworth as Doc? I could see that.Read More
