And that bonus I was talking about.
What if I told you the the spy group U.N.C.L.E. existed in 1937. You would laugh. Until I showed you this nifty (yeah, i used nifty in a sentence, you got a problem?) little tale from the G-Men August 1937 issue.
the story in called Enemies of UNCLE. but why should i go on when you can read it at:
Have Fun and Think About it!


  1. Nice blog, glad to see the younger generation reading (and across a wide range of genres too! good work :)
    Question though, why did you close the poll? I just saw it, would have voted other (since I prefer Robert E. Howard's Conan or Donald Wandrei's I. V. Frost to the other characters) but hopefully you'll post another poll on something pulp or reading related soon.

  2. i didnt see that the poll was closed until you pointed it out, so thanks!
    and a question for you, how did you know i was of the younger generation?
