NORVELL W. PAGE: WAN TENGRI – PRESTER JOHN - G.W. Thomas

"Norvell W. Page was a word machine, writing hundreds of thousands of words a year for the Pulps, especially for The Spider (under the house name of Grant Stockbridge), a weird hero pulp featuring a freakish avenger who terrorized criminals. Page also wrote for the Weird Menace pulps, a kind of 20th Century Grand Guignol style that featured supernatural-appearing stories with flimsy natural explanations at the end. These far-fetched tales required an almost hysterical style of writing. These experiences would come in handy when Page came to pen his novels of Wan Tengri, known to the Western world as Prester John." 4 out of 5 http://amazingstoriesmag.com/2013/04/norvell-w-page-wan-tengri-prester-john/
