The Talos Chronicle book series is an adult-audience pastiche of the iconic pulp character Doc Savage.
The six core books of the Talos Chronicle span an arc from 1880’s Victorian London to the not-so-distant future of 2058. Along the way you will experience the 1939 World’s Fair, globe-spanning travels from America to England to Africa, and the intense passion and violence of the “bloody pulps” re-imagined for mature readers. All books are authored by award-winning creator R. Paul Sardanas, and the saga is filled with hundreds of powerful, visionary paintings by Iason Ragnar Bellerophon. Further books in the series include re-imagined classic Doc pulp novels, anthology collections, an omnibus edition and an art monograph.
Enjoy browsing the site! You will find author/artist biographies, samples from the books, fan fiction, videos, news of Doc Talos works in progress, and the Forbidden Pulp blog, filled with not only Doc Talos history and background, but also extensive explorations of the exploits of Doc Savage in the pulps, comics, and more.
