Generous Rick Robinson sent me the first five volumes of the SECRET AGENT “X” series published by Altus Press. I love pulp fiction and these wild adventures soar above many stories from that era. From 1934 to 1939, 41 issues of SECRET AGENT “X” were published. Altus Press is reprinting the entire series in nine deluxe volumes. Tom Johnson’s informative Introduction provides a clear history of the series. The text has been completely reset and all of the interior illustrations have been remastered. I’ve only read Volume One (542 pages!), but I can’t wait to read the rest of the series! If you’re looking for thrill-a-minute reading, SECRET AGENT “X” provides that in spades! GRADE: A-

      Jeff, Rick sent me five fabulous volumes of SECRET AGENT “X”! I immediately ordered volumes Six, Seven, and Eight. One more is due to be published next year to complete the series.

    Love these books, and just about everything Altus is doing. By that I mean I don’t know of anything I don’t want on my shelves and Matt publishes too much stuff for my budget but I am compelled like a zombie to buy, buy, buy. How about his H. Bedford-Jones collection? Kill me now.

      Rick, like you and Rick, I’m a huge fan of H. Bedford-Jones! Altus is doing us all a great service by reprinting those great pulps! The least we can do is buy them!
