Welcome to The Shadowed Circle, the first pulp journal dedicated to The Shadow in more than two decades. We are a volunteer publication with an international outreach and we exist only by the goodwill of Shadow fans around the world and their contributions of writing and artwork for the publication.

Last Chance for Reduced Price on Back Issues!

Hello, all! We're hard at work on our Myra Reldon issue, but we had an important announcement we needed to share. Unfortunately, due to rising shipping prices, we will be raising the prices for our back issues on June 20. If you want to buy The Shadowed Circle Issues #1, #2, and/or #3, we highly recommend you buy them before the deadline while they are still at their current price. You can either buy them from the website here, or find the issues you want on Amazon here.

Shadowed Circle #5 Released!

Issue #5 of The Shadowed Circle has been released! We apologize for the late announcement on the website, but we were doing some housecleaning here and plain forgot to do the update. Domestic subscribers should mostly have received their issues by now, and international subscribers will be receiving theirs in the next few weeks.

We've got a lot of great articles in this one, ranging from Malcolm Deeley's ongoing series discussing The Shadow in world history to Dick Myers' examination of the inner workings of The Shadow's organization. We also have a few newcomers like Loyd Auerbach and MJ Moran, writing about their para-psychological interactions with Walter B. Gibson and comparisons between The Shadow and Doc Savage's first stories respectively.

If these articles catch your interest and you are not yet subscribed, please fill out the subscription form on this website. You won't want to miss this issue!

Special Myra Reldon Issue Incoming!

It's official, Shadowed Circlers: We are doing our very first themed issue of The Shadowed Circle! The subject for Issue #6 will be Myra Reldon, a Shadow agent whose disguise as Ming Dwan allowed her access to the underworld of Chinatown and who was a personal favorite of Walter B. Gibson. While frequently overshadowed by The Shadow's "friend and companion" Margo Lane, Reldon was another capable female agent who aided The Shadow in many of his adventures. Because of this, we figured it was high time for her to receive a little appreciation, and Issue #6 will be our show of love.

If you would like to write an article about Myra or contribute any artwork featuring her, you can send your submission (completed or outlined) to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You may also use our Submissions page to upload your files to us. The deadline for your articles/artwork is May 1st, 2023, so don't wait to finish your submissions! We can't wait to see what you create!
