      • Kenneth Robeson Lester Dent

        Kenneth Robeson was the house name used by Street and Smith Publications as the author of their popular character Doc Savage and later The Avenger Though most Doc Savage stories were written by the author Lester Dent, there were many others who contributed to the series, including William G Bogart Evelyn Coulson Harold A Davis Lawrence Donovan Alan Hathway W Ryerson Johnson Lester Dent is usually considered to be the creator of Doc Savage In the 1990s Philip Jos Farmer wrote a new Doc Savage adventure, but it was published under his own name and not by Robeson Will Murray has since taken up the pseudonym and continued writing Doc Savage books as Robeson All 24 of the original stories featuring The Avenger were written by Paul Ernst, using the Robeson house name In order to encourage sales Kenneth Robeson was credited on the cover of The Avenger magazine as the creator of Doc Savage even though Lester Dent had nothing to do with The Avenger series In the 1970s, when the series was extended with 12 additional novels, Ron Goulart was hired to become Robeson.

    1. Five nostalgic stars. My brother bequeathed 12 of the paperbacks to me when he left home for college. I was 9 or 10. I read them all and started collecting, in part because Doc was cooler than cool, and in part because I could score them for 50 cents a piece at Bonanza Books and Comics in my hometown. I have over a hundred on the book case now, and have probably read 40 of them (they are formulaic, so if you read too many in a row, they start running together.). I still take down one each year a [...]


    2. 3.5 to 4 starsSort of vacillating here between 3.5 and 4 because there were many parts that were really fun and cool in a "I feel like a 10-year old boy in 1933!" way, but there were other parts that made me roll my eyes at the bad, slapdash writing. Then I had to bitch slap my brain and remind myself that literary perfection was not the goal of the pulps. Still, that stylistic nitpick within couldn't be permanently smothered by Doc's brawny, bronzy, ripply muscles.I'd only ever seen the Ron Ely [...]


    3. While not quite a superhero, Doc Savage is as heroic and capable as a man could be. Savage was meant to combine the physical prowess of an athlete with the mind of Holmes and the conscience of Lincoln. He was the antithesis of The Shadow, bright instead of dark, merciful instead of brutal, and world-famous instead of mythical.If The Shadow's masked alleyway justice was the prototype for Batman, then Savage is the righteous boy scout is the inspiration for Superman. Savage even has an antarctic i [...]


    4. Doc Savage, supreme adventurer, and his five science bros have their first of many exploits. Beginning with an attempt on Doc's life, the gang flies from New York City to an ancient hidden city in Central America as Doc traces his legacy left to him by his father.My first Doc Savage pulp was a quick read and definitely worth the short time it took to tear through it. Savage is given his mission and his resources in this first story, effectively making it an origin story while still focusing on t [...]


    5. I discovered Doc Savage when I was 14 years of age and read him avidly for about three or four years. They are replints of the Doc Savage pulp magazine--The Man of Bronze was originally printed in 1933.If you have ever read any pulp magazines you know what to expect--slam bang adventure, hack writing and little character development.However, the orignal Doc Savage Magazine ran from 1933 to 1949--16 years. It captured it readers by being exciting adventure and nothing more.Super-scientist 'Doc " [...]


    6. He's as strong as Superman, as resourceful as Batman, as clever as Brainiac-5. He is physically as impressive as Hercules and as mesmerizingly beautiful as Apollo. He swims faster than Michael Phelps and runs quicker than Usain Bolt. He's a brilliant surgeon/physician. He is Clark 'Doc' Savage Jr.And he's completely ridiculous, larger-than-life, over-the-top alpha male. But this is grade-A pulp, and it's just too entertaining to be put off by the it's-just-too-much-of-a-good-thing greatness that [...]


    7. I wish I had the hard cover, I got a stinky paperback version from a used book store.I'm not going to lie, this book was in many ways completely retarded. I mean, I can buy into a guy being super smart and super strong due to 2 hours of strenuous mental and physical exercises undertaken every day since he was a child. To be so perfect that rain glides off his skin and hair, not unlike off the feathers of a duck? Come on! There's no way!So I should of hated this but it was still really quite good [...]


    8. One of the great pulp heroes that influenced the first generation of comic heroes. Doc Savage being a nearly perfect specimen of humanity, lacking in a tragic or traumatic past yet like Batman later, he molds himself through study and training in his Fortress of Solitude (later lifted wholesale for Superman). This is a fast paced pulp story paced well, with some clever bits, the only complaint being Doc and his men are too perfect, too powerful. Very much a product of the time, there are referen [...]


    9. This one started it all. I read about 20 of the series as a kid and even had a family dog named Doc in honor of Doc Savage. Pulp and brainless, but the perfect antidote when the need to read is there and not in the mood for 1000 page complexity.


    10. I read virtually all the Doc Savage series when they were reprinted in the 1970. Masterpieces of the pulp fiction genre.


    11. I love the idea of Doc Savage.A man trained from birth to build his mind and body to perfection, in order to pursue a life of adventure and righting wrongs. A man surrounded by top minds in numerous fields, each an expert in one or more areas of science or engineering or some other useful skill. A team of adventurers, dodging bullets, thwarting schemes, battling monsters, wielding and facing all the bizarre scientific devices a 1930's pulp fiction author can devise.But the author, Lester Dent un [...]


    12. There are some books that just can't be rated or reviewed objectively. At least not by me. So feel free to take this one with a grain of salt. On any given Saturday when I was in late grade school and junior high you could at some point find me at the Paperback Bookworm. I'd be looking for SF books. Bradbury. Asimov. Heinlein. Ace doubles. Ohd Bantam paperbacks of Doc Savage. For fifty cents you got a world of adventure. When all was said and done I had probably half the Bantam reprints. Now it' [...]


    13. An attempt on the life of Doc Savage—genius, crime-fighter, supreme physical specimen—takes him and his crew of loyal specialists to South America, where they will uncover the secret that Doc’s father has left in the care of the people of a lost civilization.All criticisms of this book concerning its clunky prose and mechanical construction are entirely beside the point. No one should read a pulp adventure novel expecting anything more than a quick, fun read—and Lester Dent (writing as K [...]


    14. With this book, i revisited a bit of my childhood. The danger, of course, is that you can't go home again and in the case of Doc Savage, it is partially true. The writing style here is juvenile and at times, hard to read for it's pure awkwardness. But the plot is highly imaginative which was the reason, even as a kid, I kept coming back to this well time after time to drink in more of Doc's adventures. I'm not sorry that I re-read this book after so many years, and I will probably partake of ano [...]


    15. Doc Savage, for those who don't know, is a brilliant physician/surgeon, scientist, adventurer and all-around superman. He is so perfect that he could be a parody of himself, except that these stories are written straight, with no hint of irony. In this, his first adventure (which I read decades ago but decided to read again), his father has just been murdered, leading Doc and his gang of scientist/adventurers to Central America, to find the killer as well as claim Doc's inheritance of gold, thou [...]


    16. Doc Savage- Man of Bronze How delightful. Spoiler alerts near the end… The Doc Savage (dozens and dozens of) adventures were published in the 30’s and 40’s in pulp fiction magazines. I had the great privilege to devour them when they were re-issued in the 70s as short novels. How my single mother of 4 boys, working double shifts as a waitress, kept me supplied with these novels is a mystery to me, but there’s a “Love of a Mother” story in there somewhere as new issues endlessly came [...]


    17. Doc Savage is one of those heroes who's a little too big for his adventures. This is the only one I've actually read, but from what I understand he has this same level of invincible-ness in every one of his exploits. It's not subtle and it's not accidental, the story reminds the reader time and again that Doc is the greatest, the strongest, the smartest, the fastest, and the most likeable. Clark Savage Jr. is the kind of hero who will get out of a jam by bending steel, changing his pulse rate, [...]


    18. I've been wanting to read this for a very long time. Right back from when i discovered and loved the the 1975 movie Doc Savage:The Man of Bronze starring Ron Ely, the star of the Tarzan TV series from the late 60's, which i also loved. I guess because of that and because i was only 7 years old its unsurprising i loved the Doc Savage film. I guess it's a little more surprising to say i still love the film even recognising it's many faults.I'm also a fan of Pulp fiction so this was probably going [...]


    19. Doc Savage, the Man of Bronze. A more perfect physical specimen does not exist. He's a Greek god come to life. Not only does he possess a perfect physical form, he is also the most keen mind of his generation, being an expert in every field he has taken the time to study.Doc is one of the greatest pulp heroes ever, because he has a superior moral code. He is a man of action, but also a thinking man's hero. And he ain't got time for dames, not when there's a world to make better.The dialogue is r [...]


    20. You know I wish I liked Doc Savage better. I read one, don't like it much, but when time passes I sort of forget how bad it was and pick up another. But this was one of the worst. It'll be a while before I go back to the "well" again. the Doc Savage books often have great titles, start off with an interesting villany, and create a certain amount of atomsphere. But they just can't maintain it because the writing is so "ham"-handed and bad. I bet if these books had been written at a slower pace wh [...]


    21. This is another book that I was given to read by Tom to read. I didn't know much about Doc Savage but I had read about it when I researched graphic novels.12/30: Just finished this one. It was put aside many times over the past months or so because there were other books that I had to read for teen book award committee or book club meetings but I liked it and would recommend it to anyone in search of an old-fashioned action story.


    22. When Clark Savage, Jr. returns from his Fortress of Solitude, in the Arctic Circle. He learns of the death of his farther and is nearly assassinated by a "red-fingered" warrior from an ancient Central American civilization long thought to have disappeared. Doc Savage and his friends travel to the Central American country of Hidalgo to search for the inheritance that Doc's father bequeathed him.


    23. true this book should be terrible. The concept is absurd but not in a good way. But it's pulp, it's meant to be like that. Once you get past that and decide to just enjoy it as it is, it's a fun ride. Take it with a pinch of salt and read it with a wry grin.


    24. A great adventure that cracks along.On the negative side, some of the phraseology reads as very dated, but imagine that it's an old b&w movie and its sins are forgiven.Also, read the description of Doc in chapter one; very homoerotic, though unintentionally so I imagine!





    25. It is utterly debatable whether this deserves the score I gave it. But since this is a throwback and a product of its time, I'm happy to cut the first Doc Savage book a lot of slack, just as I have done with literary characters such as Biggles.Doc Savage is the inspiration for modern superheroes, particularly Superman, even though Savage does not have any special powers. He is just very well trained, rendering him into a superhuman. There are elements of superheroes here, but also what would lat [...]


    26. I was curious to read one of these legendary pulp adventures, the ancestors of the superhero genre. Very much the ancestors; Doc Savage's first name is Clark, and he has a Fortress of Solitude (so named) in the Arctic. And he's the Man of Bronze, which is very like Man of Steel. Apart from these parallels, though, he's more Batman than Superman. He's rich, and an inventor. He has an intensive daily regime of two hours of physical and mental conditioning, which have made his mind and senses sharp [...]


    27. Doc Savage, the Man of Bronze! How did he get so perfect? Why, he works out two hours every day! By flexing his muscles, doing math problems, and carefully listening and smelling for a couple hours every morning, he has perfected his body, mind, and senses to superhuman levels! Sorry ladies, he's celibate!The amount of enjoyment you are going to get out of this book is greatly determined by your expectations going in. Make no mistake, this book is so pulpy you could make orange juice with it. Th [...]


    28. I read most of the Doc Savage novels as a kid and loved them. Adventure, superheros that you could be if you worked hard enough (studied and went to the gym. A lot!) who yet were human in their foibles. I even got my friend Dennis hooked on them (quite the coup. Nobody in school liked the books I read. They were "too far out there" or "beyond your years" according to parents, friends' parents and teachers).But the one I never read was the original, The Man of Bronze, the book that provided the b [...]


    29. Doc Savage returns from his Fortress of Solitude to find that his father has been murdered. Doc and his friends go on a long adventure to hidden Mayan cities, riches beyond their dreams, beautiful Princesses and a fight to the death with a deadly foe.***I’ve heard a bit about Lester Dent recently. He was a master of the pulp fiction formula and Doc Savage arguably had a huge effect on a lot of genres. Dean Wesley Smith argues that the lead character with a small group of friends/accomplices is [...]


    30. Yeah, this book (and the entire series) is silly. There are a lot of "Oh come on!" moments, like Doc sliding down an elevator cable instead of using the elevator in the usual manner, or the contest among Doc's aides to pull a bullet out of the back of a safe. But the stories are great fun. And they're all different. Despite Lester Dent's obvious failings as a writer, he knew how to do one thing very well: advance the story line. Nothing is wasted. There are no exercises in futility. The classic [...]


    31. The original Doc Savage story had me hooked within the first few pages. This is classic pulp fiction with a flair for drama and daring deeds. Doc is sort of superhero who isn't gifted with any supernatural powers but has honed his strength, intellect, and senses through lifelong training. He is accomplished in many fields yet never seeks the spotlight. Many of the things that the book presents as his inventions--things that were unheard of in the 1930's--have actually been invented since; it was [...]


    32. Este fue, junto a "La Sombra" de Maxwell Grant, uno de los héroes "Pulp" más populares, allá por los años 30. Y resulta curioso e interesante ver el concepto que se tenía del "héroe" en aquellos tiempos. Doc Savage es el más inteligente, el más fuerte, el más noble y el que pega las hostias más descacharrantes. También resulta casi enternecedor leer pasajes como "el avión privado ultramoderno de Doc, capaz de alcanzar los 330 km/h" Y como novela de aventuras y pasatiempo veraniego ti [...]


    33. Doc Savage is a childhood favourite and I've just recently hauled out the 5 volumes of reprints put out by Golden Press in the mid-70s. There are actually six in the set, but I must have misplaced one of them.Like many reviewers, I vacillated between giving this one 4 or 5 stars. I went with 4 stars mainly because the author uses the same descriptive words over and over again.Example: one of the main bad guys is "swarthy", which he uses to describe that character every single time he is mentione [...]


    34. "Best 2* book ever", he vouchsafed!The above sentence is very similiar to one in this book. Granted, no one comes to Doc looking for good writing. (There is NONE here.) Heck, I LOOOOOVED Doc in my youth, and I'm going to read ten of these short novels for kicks, but this first one was a tough slog."Out of the door, Doc ran." There's lots of that kind of sentence structure.It was oft-times a chore to read, but, all-in-all, it was a lot of fun. It's a product of it's time. Gender feminists undoubt [...]


    35. Although it's the book (pulp magazine) that started it all, it's not even close to my favorite and for that reason, I've probably avoided rereading it all these years. I first read it as a teen and I don't think I ever read it again until this week when I decided to return to Doc's origin. Nevertheless, at my friend's bidding, we both decided to reread it for the first time in decades and it proved to be quite fun. Though the identity of the mysterious villain is pretty obvious, it's not about t [...]


    36. Back when I was a wee lad of single digit age, my grandmother gave me this book. She told me it was "about a superhero who is like James Bond and Superman and Batman"SOLD!!! I was one of those children who was obsessed with the Super Friends, Star Wars, Bionic Man, and James Bond. So of course I would read the book. And I did- about 6 years later when I was in my Tweens. I was home sick from school, I had just finished my Hardy Boys book from the library, and it would be a couple of days before [...]


    37. The first Doc Savage story appeared in 1933 and the series ran in pulp and later digest format into 1949. Bantam reprinted the entire series in paperback with wonderful, iconic covers starting in the 1960's. Doc was arguably the first great modern superhero with a rich background, continuity, and mythos. The characterizations were far richer than was common for the pulps; his five associates and their sometimes-auxiliary, Doc's cousin Pat, and the pets Chemistry and Habeas Corpus, all had very d [...]


    38. I had heard a bit about the titular "Man of Bronze," but had never previously had the chance to read one of the stories. As a fan of pulp fiction I read this, the first of the Doc Savage novels, with great interest.Both the characters and the story lived up to expectations. Doc Savage was, as expected, a paragon of mankind. He's a genius with the physique of an Olympian. His close friends--a lawyer, geologist, chemist, historian, etc--are equally as remarkable, but I found it interesting that ev [...]


    39. This is the first of the Doc Savage paperbacks, which are not new books, rather they are compilations of the serialised Doc Savage stories from the pulps. Doc Savage is one of the archetypal pulp characters. basically better at everything than anyone else, although he does have a crew of above average companions, although none of them are his equal. Doc Savage gains his powers through a regimen of strict training and scientific wizardry (rather like Batman), than through any supernatural powers, [...]


    40. Possibly the worst piece of published fiction I have ever read. It is nearly perfect in its awfulness, ranging from over- to under-written depending on the passage, full of contrivances, conveniences and redundancies and otherwise just plain bad.While I think Doc Savage is an interesting template for a character (he was used quite well in Alan Moore's Tom Strong, Warren Ellis' Planetary and The Venture Bros.), he's just a mess here. First off, as others pointed out, the guy can do anything, and [...]


    41. So, I know Doc Savage is a big deal, and that a ton of later characters and heroes count him in their lineage, literarily speaking. But I have to be honest he's a totally boring character.A bronze skinned man, combining an improbable physique and an unsurpassed genius, Doc Savage is clearly modeled on the Grecian ideal. Yet he misses the point of what made all the Greek heroes interesting: their tempers always got them into trouble. Doc is unflappable. Nothing ever fazes him. He's not interested [...]


    42. An attempt on the life of Doc Savage--genius, crime-fighter, supreme physical specimen--takes him and his crew of loyal specialists to South America, where they will uncover the secret that Doc's father has left in the care of the people of a lost civilization.All criticisms of this book concerning its clunky prose and mechanical construction are entirely beside the point. No one should read a pulp adventure novel expecting anything more than a quick, fun read--and Lester Dent (writing as Kennet [...]
