Lester Dent is an American author of fiction. He was born October 4, 1904, in La Plata, Missouri. He is also known for his writings under the pen name Kenneth Robeson.

Dent initially was going to be a banker and intended to go to school for business. However, when he was standing in line in order to apply, he found out that telegraph operators made more than bankers and decided to switch to telegraphy. But while working for the A.P. he discovered that writers made a lot by writing stories for pulp magazines and started writing stories during slow hours.

He began writing for Dell Publishing exclusively for $500 a month. However, Dell ended their pulp magazine run. From there he moved to N.Y.C. and it is there that he worked with Henry Ralston to develop the Doc Savage Magazine. Ralston was the head of a leading pulp publisher called Street and Smith and had contacted Dent about the idea of writing a magazine about an adventure hero. Like his Dell deal, Dent got $500 and later $750 per novel.

Their magazine ran for sixteen years, from 1933 to 1949. In that time, it published 181 novel-length stories. The majority of these were written by Lester Dent himself under the pen name of Kenneth Robeson. He composed 159 novel-length stories over the course of those years. One of these stories involved the creation of his famous character Doc Savage, a superhuman scientist and adventurer, of which he was the main author. Dent passed away March 11, 1959.

Doc Savage is known for being a genius as well as one of the most remarkable living man. His intellect is only surpassed by his great physical strength. He was trained from birth to be fantastic at science and pursue it as a career. He is described as a strange individual, which makes sense. He is not anything like a normal man his age would be. All of his training combined to make him smarter and stronger than others.

Savage was a product of science that had been entered into a structured life of training ever since he was born and was young. This genius had spent two hours a day doing intense exercises that would help his muscles develop but also would help with his mental sharpness and physical senses. He had studied all areas when he was young as well, trades, professions, sciences, and more, to achieve a knowledge that was far above average. Now Savage protects those who cannot protect themselves.

Dent also released mystery novels in many genres. One was the Chance Molloy series, which featured an airline owner that was entirely self-made. Dent’s life was pretty adventurous as well, as he had done everything from treasure hunting in the Caribbean to living on a schooner for years and prospecting in the Southwest for gold as well as starting up an aerial photography company and belonging to the Explorer’s Club.

He has written many standalone novels as well as collaborated with other authors on other works. His short stories have also been featured in a number of collections. His work also came out in a book called The Lost Radio Scripts of Lester Dent.

The Man of Bronze is the first book in the Doc Savage series. Readers get introduced to pulp fiction hero Doc Savage, who is always ready to take on the powers in the world that want to take over the world. Doc Savage is fighting the survivors of a lost civilization from the ancient times and is engaged in lethal combat with them above the New York skyline.

Doc Savage must travel to the lost valley in order to track down a rumored treasure and for the purpose of destroying the strange Red Death once and for all. Can he do it? Pick up The Man of Bronze by Lester Dent as Keith Robeson to find out!

The Thousand-Headed Man is the second book in the Doc Savage series by Lester Dent under his house name Kenneth Robeson. Doc Savage is on a journey this time on the way to the Indo-Chinese jungles with the help of a great crew and a black Chinaman who is very mysterious.

They are going to Indo-China to try and achieve their goal of destroying the Thousand-headed Man. Doc Savage, the genius, marvel of strength, and product of science is back in this pulp fiction novel from Robeson. Born from birth as a product of science to the career that he has now, every bit of science that he could use was incorporated in his training and he had not had a life that was normal, as he had spent every day since childhood training and studying.

Now Doc Savage spends his life trying to help those that are in trouble. It is his work to help the oppressed and show up to confront those who would be fine doing evil and are beyond the reach of the law. Through all of this, Doc Savage has made it his unending quest to never accept gifts or money for the work that he does.

Savage had set up five assistants long ago. These men were each a specialist in their line of work and shared among them a passion for adventure and excitement as well as an admiration for the bronze man that was their chief and kept their group together. These five specialize in different areas and each help the Doc in a different way.

Some men like food, some like money, and some like art. Doc Savage likes adventure and putting himself in peril to save others that are in danger. He devotes his life to making himself better to the best of his ability so that all may benefit from his work.

His goal is to lend assistance to people that need it and only focus on justice. With courage and consideration and all that he holds dear, Doc Savage’s goal is to do right to all and wrong no one. Find out what happens by picking up The Thousand-Headed Man and seeing what Doc Savage and his team of assistants accomplish!
