Kaspa, a Real Lion Man
Artwork by Rob Sankner & Joe Orsak
This is the cover of the KROOM SON
OF THE SEA issue,Pulpdom O. #23.
Who is Kaspa?
Inspired by Tarzan, [created by
Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1912]
Kaspa the Lion Man was created
by C.T. Stoneham in 1930. There
were three novels by Stoneham,
and now five new short stories by
Mike Taylor and Caz, published
in recent issues of Pulpdom --this
obscure little magazine with an
origin in the 20th century. [ERB-
dom, the father of Pulpdom,
began publication in 1960, and
won the Sci Fi Hugo for Best
Amateur Magazine of 1966.]
One of the new Kaspa stories,
is included in Pulpdom #100,
which is free. Some issues of
Pulpdom are for sale and three
are free. I hope that the free ones,
in PDF fromat (#17, #20 & #100)
will give you a “feel” for them
and you will want the complete
set in PDF format for only $50.
When you have all 100 issues in
a folder on your desktop, each is
quickly available for reference
and easy to read and review
Who is Yashtar?
Another of the KASPA tales,
"Trek into Tirambitar” is a 30,000
word adventure that introduces
“Yashtar, the Lion Goddess”, a
strong and beautiful companion
of the Lion Man. She was created
in 1940 by John Wiggin in an issue
of ACTION STORIES, (Aug.1940)
and her story is reprinted in full
in Pulpdom Online #17, one of
the free issues. She is the perfect
mate for the Lion Man, as you
will see on reading about her.
THE CRUMBLING PULPS
The world of pulp magazines
and the characters they presented
to the popular "fiction reading"
public for over 50 years has faded.
But, they remain an opportunity to escape today's techno world, and re- live fantasy adventures in fantastic settings with famous heroes written by mostly forgotten authors. My version of Kaspa and his lion
friends reflects my idea of escape fiction, not too much blood and mayhem, more a tale of exploring a new world cursed with the baboon-like Jumboi, but still a good life in the wilds of a vast, world, reminiscent
of early America when it was not cluttered with too much "civilization."
That is Tirambitar, in #99

*** CAZUALS ***
I think it is over. No one
seems to be interested
in Pulpdom or Kaspa. I have been doing all this
for over 60 years, and I have grown weary with
so little feedback, even
with M. Brown's
favorable comments of
Pulpdoms 1 to 50
nicely reviewed in his
of last recent years.
I have decided to quit
and let it be, just
not worth it. Not even
sure I'll keep this
I still live, but that's
about it. It's been a
long fun run,
including a Hugo.
All things must pass.
I found another
copy of Ike Asimov's CHRONOLOGY OF THE WORLD, one of the great history books of the 20th century. If you don't have this book in your library, you are really missing a history gem.
No single book gives you such super information on any two pages of this 675 page 1991 treasure.
My knees hurt
so much, it is
hard to walk
around. So I will
not be going
to any Cons
unless very close.
But I would
a visitor... just
call in advance.
KIT CARSON (1809-1868)
A real person who became one of the
first of the pulp heroes, in spite of his
disdain for such notoriety. Perhaps 50
"dime novels" feature him, or characters
using his name. Not too tall, rather shy
and unassuming, he lived in Taos, New
Mexico and had a family of ten kids
with his wife Josefa, a fine Spanish lady.
Who was Louis L'Amour?
