In the Thirties and Forties, when the stories in this collection were written, adventure fiction filled the pages of pulp magazines month after month. Carl Jacobi's by-line was becoming as well known among devotees of action pulps as it had already become to faithful followers of Weird Tales and other horror and fantasy magazines. Here are twenty-one pulse-pounding tales from the pulp era, most of them set in Borneo.
