"The Taxol Thief" on the air!

Bold Venture Press grabs headlines whenever and wherever it can ... often it grabs airwaves, also!

Bold Venture is rolling out The Taxol Thief, a harrowing narrative of one man's attempt to rescue his wife from cancer. For three decades, the FDA denied approval of a first-in-class drug, "taxol," condemning thousands of breast-cancer victims to certain death. The Taxol Thief is the story of one couple's attempt to evade that fate by smuggling taxol from China through Russia.

February is National Cancer Prevention Month, and editor Audrey Parente was searching for venues to make people aware of The Taxol Thief. That's where Jonathan "JDOGG" Lederman comes in ...

Jonathan JDOGG Lederman, The Positive Broadcaster, has been inspiring and empowering audiences for over 40 years. His message of service to humanity being the best work of life resonates with all ages and all nationalities. JDOGG interviewed author Ceylon Barclay on February 13th on his Get Motivated With JDOGG program. It's a terrific interview about the novel, and about cancer awareness in general.

Listen to his radio interview with Ceylon here:

JDOGG has been actively involved in the communities where he has lived, worked, and played. JDOGG has won numerous awards for community service including a Governor's Point Of Light Award, The WRMF Hometown Hero Award, The American Cancer Society Hope Award, The U.S. Jaycees John H. Armbruster Memorial Award, and The Monford Johnson Community Service Award. JDOGG is very active with The American Cancer Society Relay For Life and has raised over $40,000 in the  last 17 years. 2017 Marks his 18th year of involvement with Relay For Life and he has raised $874 so far.

The Spider awards bonus books to attendees

A few weeks ago, we announced Timely/Marvel artist Allen Bellman will be a guest at the Florida edition of Pulp Adventurecon on February 11, 2017. Now here's some more pertinent information ...

The first 50 paying attendees -- on February 11, 2017 in Fort Lauderdale -- will receive their choice of a bonus book, The Spider #5: Empire of Doom, The Spider #7: Serpent of Destruction or The Spider #8: The Mad Horde. Bold Venture Press published these editions over a decade ago, and they remain highly prized collectibles!

The Spider was created in the early 1930s, in the wake of The Shadow's success. Early in the run, Norvell Page (under the house name Grant Stockbridge) gave The Spider's adventures a unique hysterical quality. In many respects, he was the Lethal Weapon of the 1930s.

For newcomers to the world of pulp fiction, this is a great introduction to one of the classic pulp super-heroes. The supplies are limited, so get to the show early!

Be certain to put Pulp Adventurecon on your must-attend list. Dealer tables packed with quality merchandise, much of it pulp magazines, Golden Age comic books and original artwork. You'll also find vintage paperbacks, mens adventure pulps, and quality reprints from various publishers.

Admission is a miserly $5.00 per person. Vendor tables are $45.00 each. Keep checking our website for updates, and for information on our upcoming November show in Bordentown, NJ.
