"Explore the rollicking, rip-roaring era of pulp fiction. From its origins in the late nineteenth century, when adventure stories reigned, through almost six decades of slinking sleuths, galloping ghouls, nitty-gritty gals, and invincible warriors, the pulp magazines transported readers into new territories of the mind. Not only did these publications help popularize authors such as Dashiell Hammett, Ray Bradbury, and Edgar Rice Burroughs, they now provide a panorama of some sixty years of illustration and social commentary."--Jacket

Bill Tanner is a professor of anthropology at an unnamed university in Chicago. He's part of a team working on Navy-financed studies in human endurance, focused on answering the question of what qualities make some people so much stronger, smarter, more efficient, and more likely to survive than others. Colleague John Olson, however, thinks the studies have a secret agenda, and at the tense meeting that opens the book he blurts out a fantastic claim: there's a superman among them, in hiding, just waiting for the right opportunity to take over the world. The human race, he says, is "all washed up." Naturally this revelation is greeted with skepticism. Tanner, in charge of the team, tries to soothe Olson with an impromptu experiment designed to prove that no one in the room has superpowers. But to everyone's shock, it proves just the opposite. Olson, it seems, is right. But who is the superman? What does he want? And is Olson correct about his nature -- is there a monster loose within the world?
