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.

Number 9

Number Nine

Creator: Sean Danowski
Paul Highland
Miss Reeves

Gray eyes behind a domino mask, Number Nine is a master of deception, and a man of countless faces whose own face was not known and never seen by friends, enemies, or the public at large for he was almost always in disguise. Long ago, after the Great War, he had established himself as a crime fighter. During the war he had been assigned to an elite group of airmen, ten men who were sent on a mission behind enemy lines to France. He was the ninth man, and the only one to survive, but ten graves were left in France, leading the military to believe all ten had died. Only one man knew the secret, the officer who had sent them on the mission, Commander Paul Highland.
Vance is a sharp dressed man in fedora, pastel tie, pinstriped suit and leather gloves; the brim of his hat cast a shadow over his face. This was the only name revealed for the mysterious manhunter.
Paul Highland is now the assistant district attorney for the great city. He has a deep, commanding voice.
Danny is a police desk sergeant, and a spy for Number Nine.
Miss Reeves is Paul Highland’s secretary.
The NEW YORK HERALD is the city’s newspaper.
Number Nine uses coded words to identify himself to Paul Highland with, “One from the grave.” Highland responds with, “Who is lost to the living.”
Only one novel was published as a four-part serieal:
“Siege of Satan’s Death Brigade” CLASSIC PULP FICTION STORIES #13, 14, 15 & 16.
