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.

The Forever Man

The Forever Man

Creator: Tom Johnson
The Forever Man
The Consolidated Guard (TCG)
Ghosts (Special Agents of TCG)
Paula Sinclair (Agent of Ghosts)

In the far distant future, when Earthmen have moved outward in the universe, a mysterious Galactic master thief has appeared to confound the world governments and police agencies. He has no name, but whispers circulate on the planets and moons where human and alien species have settled, of a man who appears suddenly, then disappears just as quickly – taking with him some great object of value. Their hushed voices mumble an odd name, The Forever Man! But who he is, and what he looks like, no one knows.
The Forever Man has dark hair and blue eyes and is part of a huge clearance house for returned valuables stolen from rich worlds and their leaders. He doesn’t steal from them. He steals from those who have stolen their treasures. Then he acts as the ambassador, returning the valuable property – for a fee! No man – or world – can hold him, for he was born a mutant on a world that experienced a terrible catastrophe, giving him two brains. And the mysterious ability to teleport near and far distances. The one drawback is planet hopping. He is able to teleport short distances with no problem, but when jumping from planet to planet, he often arrives naked, and suffering from temporary amnesia.
The Consolidated Guard is a universal police force, with offices on every allied world, they have full authority among all the species. Within their organization are special espionage agents, known as Ghosts, who move about the worlds among their people, watching for unrest and criminal activity. They are well trained and highly efficient. They are also looking for leads to The Forever Man, but have no knowledge of the organization he works for. In “Planets In Peril”, The Forever Man recruits a member of Ghosts to join the organization, named Paula Sinclair.
Paula Sinclair is a tall, slender woman, with dark hair and brown eyes. She flashes creamy white thighs to distract men, but is a highly trained and skilled agent of Ghosts!
