New Year’s Resolution Scorecard — Week 04

Read­ing: I dis­cov­ered the Doc Sav­age sto­ry “The Green Mas­ter” at the local used book store, as I was perus­ing the stacks in prepa­ra­tion for jury duty the fol­low­ing week (which nev­er hap­pened.) It was a rel­a­tive­ly quick read, a much short­er sto­ry than the oth­er Doc Sav­age sto­ries in the collection.

Research: This week I give cred­it to pas­sive research. I mon­i­tor a blog enti­tled Dr. Her­mes Retro-Scans (now in its sec­ond incar­na­tion, with More Retro-Scans). The author of the blog peri­od­i­cal­ly reviews pulp era fic­tion, par­tic­u­lar­ly the sto­ries of the Shad­ow, the Avenger, Doc Sav­age, the Green Lama, among oth­ers. This is where I am dis­cov­er­ing a num­ber of Doc Sav­age sto­ries that fea­ture hyp­no­sis-relat­ed mate­r­i­al beyond the cou­ple of sto­ries that I was orig­i­nal­ly aware of. One of those is “The Green Mas­ter” which is the sub­ject of this week’s reg­u­lar blog posting.
