“Walter Kaylin, come back!” – Mario Puzo, author of THE GODFATHER

Scores of great authors wrote for men’s adventure pulps: Elmore Leonard, Jim Thompson, Richard Matheson, Lawrence Block and Harlan Ellison, to name a few. But the one writers for MAN’S WORLD and TRUE ACTION envied most was Walter Kaylin.

Leaving an indelible mark on three decades of sweat-soaked pulp fiction, Walter Kaylin tackled testosterone-fueled subjects from Westerns to war, secret agents to sex sirens, Nazis to noir. His frequently over-the-top plots and characters scaled new heights of ingenuity and invention, while setting the standard for the kind of unapologetic savagery and excess that made men’s adventure magazines notorious, then and now.

“He looked like a divinity student, always buttoned up. Then the stories would come in. They were special … seamless and outrageous and wonderful. I let him do whatever he wanted and he rarely, if ever, disappointed. He really deserves a tribute. I think of him as a treasure.”
–Bruce Jay Friedman (STERN, LUCKY BRUCE), Kaylin’s editor at MEN and MALE

Robert Deis of MensPulpMags.com and Wyatt Doyle (STOP REQUESTED), editors of the acclaimed WEASELS RIPPED MY FLESH! anthology, rescue a whopping 15 high-intensity Kaylin classics from pulp fiction purgatory, along with the jaw-dropping illustrations that accompanied their original magazine publication … plus reminiscences by Kaylin, his family, and his former editor, writer Bruce Jay Friedman.

HE-MEN, BAG MEN & NYMPHOS rips the lid off the pulps’ best kept secret to introduce Kaylin’s unique brand of tension and tough-guy thrills to a new generation of readers. But be warned: These are not stories for the delicate, or faint of heart. HE-MEN, BAG MEN & NYMPHOS hits like a clenched fist; get yours or get out of the way!
