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.

Detachment 1039 is a secretive, Joint Operations unit of the U.S. Military, tasked with countering supernatural threats around the world. Headquartered in Miami, the unit is comprised of analysts, psychics and the latest generation of supersoldier: the Stone Soldiers. Men turned to living stone by conflicting curses, the stone soldiers possess inhuman strength and an invulnerability to most conventional weapons. Operating out of their base near Homestead Air Force Base in Miami, FL, the stone soldiers respond to threats both within and outside of the United States.
The leader of the Detachment, Colonel Mark Kenslir, is the last of the last of the 20th Century supersoldiers- a man kept alive by multiple curses and his resistance to magic. The first stone soldier, Kenslir’s body temporarily turns to stone until it is repaired, enabling him to take terrific damage and even to return from death. The Colonel leads a team of soldiers-turned-supersoldiers and trains a new generation to defend America- including his own grandaughter, Josie Winters, a girl with the cryokinetic ability to freeze objects with her mind. The Detachment is aided by Ghost Walker astral scouts able to recon remote sites, Oracle precognitive psychics who receive visions of terrible events in the future, and a dedicated team of Joint Operations specialists that coordinate the use of conventional forces in support of the supernatural combat mission.
