Author Paul Malmont conjures up the brainy creators of those characters in his new book, The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril. In his story, authors Gibson and Dent challenge each other to solve a real-life mystery, one that will be the basis for the greatest pulp novel ever. Why would Malmont, a relatively young, smart guy, be fascinated by a passÃ©, 60- to 70-year-old literary tradition? Seems he found his first pulp fiction novel at a book fair when he was ten, and was hooked. Malmont signs and discusses The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril at 6:30 p.m.
