Thank you, Ma’am, may I have another: THE GOLDEN AMAZON RETURNS by John Russell Fearn

Long before Hollywood plagued the world with one sequel after another, the great pulp writers discovered the power of bringing back a character, even after he or she was killed at the end of the story. At the end of the first Golden Amazon novel, we saw Violet Ray Brandt dead, a victim of her own psychopathic intrigues. However, John Russell Fearn, the creator of the Golden Amazon, knew he had a hot property on his hands after the success of the first Golden Amazon reboot.

Year Zero: THE GOLDEN AMAZON by John Russel Fearn (Golden Amazon 1)

The Golden Amazon by John Russel Fearn was introduced to the world in its second form in 1944. Although Wildside Press is publishing many of the books in this series, they started with book seven because it was decided this was the most appropriate book for a beginning. However, the real beginning of this series was with this first book. This is the secret origin of Violet Ray Brand, the Golden Amazon of fame. As has been said before. The first round of the Golden Amazon was in a series of planetary romances where she was a human woman of immense power raised in the jungles of Venus. Fearn decided to revamp it in 1944 as a whole pulp heroine. Therefore, that makes this book -6 if you mark them by the Wildside Press method.

The Golden Matriarch: LORD OF ATLANTIS by John Russel Fearn (Golden Amazon 8-2)

In Lord of Atlantis, we have Violet Ray Brandt now ruling Earth as the Supreme Matriarch. This book was first published in 1949 and reprinted in 2012. Once again, it is necessary to point out that the book is listed as the second novel in the Golden Amazon saga, but it is in fact the eighth book in the series. The introduction is by Golden Amazon expert Philip Harbottle.
