The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril - Paul Malmont

The death and funeral and reappearance of H. P. Lovecraft heralds an adventure for Walter Gibson, Lester Dent, and L. Ron Hubbard.

A Chinese warlord is involve, reminding Gibson of the Shadow, and plenty of cameos, most significantly by Doc Smith and Robert Heinlein, among others.

A decent book, although the Chinese political interludes certainly drag, at times. Certainly worth a look if you like hero pulp.

3.5 out of 5
