I Watched Them Eat Me Alive is the first installment of The Men's Adventure Library Journal, a series focusing on specific facets of the vintage men's adventure magazines stories, artwork, and history. This deluxe, expanded hardcover contains additional material exclusive to this edition. Dedicated to exploring the lost world of vintage men's adventure magazines (aka MAMs), The Men's Adventure Library chronicles the mags' three decades on American newsstands, from the early 1950s through the mid-1970s. Mixing elements from many sources--early pulp fiction, detective stories and true crime, mystery and noir films, exotic travel magazines, celebrity scandal rags and bachelor mags--MAMs ratcheted up the tension and amped up the testosterone to create explosive, entertaining, and often outrageous reading for millions of American men. Though long extinct and mostly unseen for generations, their pervasive influence continues to shape some of the most popular and enduring pop culture tropes and trends. Curated by MAM historian/collector Robert Deis and writer Wyatt Doyle, The Men's Adventure Library reprints and provides context for classic MAM stories and artwork drawn from the mags' rich history of gonzo pulp, with releases available in full-color trade paperback and deluxe, expanded hardcover editions. Each volume is a vivid reminder that MAMs were extremely cool, unexpectedly influential, and still pack a bare-knuckle punch. Read 'em all...if you've got the guts!

From the jungles to the deserts to the mean city streets, the men's adventure magazines of the 1950s, '60s and '70s - pulpy periodicals like REAL MEN, MALE, MAN'S LIFE, TRUE MEN STORIES, UNTAMED, EXOTIC ADVENTURES and GUSTO - left no male fantasy or interest unexplored. War stories, exotic adventure yarns, "true, first-hand" accounts of white-knuckle clashes between man and beast, and spicy tales of sadistic frauleins and tropical white queens hungry for companionship ... topped off with salacious exposés of then-shocking subjects like free love, the Beat Generation, homosexuality, LSD and the secret horniness hidden in calypso lyrics. Josh Alan Friedman (BLACK CRACKER) and Wyatt Doyle (STOP REQUESTED) join collector and historian Robert Deis of MensPulpMags.com for a guided safari through a jaw-dropping collection of classic men's adventure magazine stories in the first anthology from the genre ever published. Packed with pulp fiction created by writers who later went on to greater fame, sensational illustrations by masters of men's pulp art and wacky ads taken from the magazines' back pages, WEASELS RIPPED MY FLESH! is your passport to a gonzo world where every dame was a femme fatale or a scantily-clad damsel in distress and manly men fought small mammals bare-handed.

Read this book and understand--at last!--why men never listen, why women can't read maps, and why learning each other's secrets means you'll never have to say sorry again.
