Summertime. When thoughts turn to sun, sand, surf…and sharks! Just in time for beach season, Men’s Adventure Library editors Robert Deis and Wyatt Doyle dive deep into long unseen shark-themed pulp fiction and savage full-color illustration art drawn from three decades of classic men’s adventure magazines (or MAMs), most out of print since their original publication.

“My God, the Sharks Got the Women!”…”Shark-Battling Dolphins Saved My Life”…”A Man-Eating Shark Pack Against Scuba Divers”…”The Headhunting Shark That Destroyed a Texas Family”…”The Sharks Got My Legs”…

Wild, untamed shark fiction and hard-nosed shark science collide in one high-octane, full color collection. There’s never been a book like it!

Sharks and hard-boiled shark hysteria were an integral part of MAMs from the very beginning, regularly appearing as villains across the magazines’ three-decade lifespan, in stories by the likes of GODFATHER author Mario Puzo and Robert Edmond Alter, and in the killer covers and interior art by pantheon illustration artists like Mort Künstler and Samson Pollen.

In addition to expert commentary and critiques, a preface by Steve Cheskin, creator of Discovery’s Shark Week, and an afterword by MEGA SHARK VS. GIANT OCTOPUS director “Ace Hannah” (Jack Perez) affirm the sturdy bloodlines between the shark terror of yesterday and today’s sharkmania.

MANEATERS is available as a 170-page softcover and as a 192-page expanded hardcover with additional content.
