Risque Stories no. 5

This chapbook from 1987. “Hell Cat of Hong Kong” is one of five stories featuring REH character John Gorman.
John Gorman was created by Robert E. Howard in an untitled synopsis for a “spicy” adventure story.

Marc A. Cerasini and Charles Hoffman took this synopsis and used it as a basis for a short story, “She-Cats of Samarkand.” The story was published under the byline of Sam Walser, a pseudonym REH used when he wrote for the “spicy” pulps.
