This Site is for essays on The New Pulp Heroes. It’s about time we catalog new characters appearing in books and anthologies. Since I do not have time to read everything being published, I will offer space here for legitimate creators of new pulp characters to send me their data, and I will post their essays. It is not my place to say what is, or what is not a new pulp hero, and the only changes I will make to essays will be editing and format. If you wish, include a jpeg of a book cover or b&w illustration if you have permission from the artist. By sending me your essays, you are giving me permission to promote and showcase this data. Essays should be up to 500 words, and include information on MC and back up characters, creator, title of books, and where the stories can be found. A paperback edition is now available for $12.00, plus $3.99 postage (US). The book will only be sold through us: Tom Johnson, 204 W. Custer St., Seymour, TX 76380.

Señora Scorpion

Senora Scorpion

Creator: Tom Johnson
Senora Alsiara Perez

The Spanish possession of California, late 1700s.

Riding a Pinto pony, Senora Scorpion was dressed as a caballero, wearing dark pants and jacket, with silver sequins running down the legs and arms. A wide, black sombrero, crested with silver buttons topped her head, and a black mask covered the bottom features of her face. In her left hand was a fifteen-foot bullwhip, and a deadly sword was grasped in her right hand. She feared no man, and willingly led her small outlaw band against Spain’s soldiers.
Senora Alsiara Perez is the owner of a small café in San Francisco de Asis. She is a handsome young Mexican woman, wearing a large sombrero and brown riding suit. Her husband and family had been killed by the Spaniards, and her land stolen. Alsiara’s father had taught her from childhood to ride and use both sword and bullwhip, and she was master of the blade and whip.
As the Scorpion, she was an outlaw, robbing from the Spaniards, whom she wanted to drive into the sea and free Mexico from Spain’s yoke.
