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.

Pulp: A Fiction Magazine

Pulp: A Fiction Magazine

In February 1995, Clancy O’Hara published a small-press magazine titled, Pulp: A Fiction Magazine (dated Winter 1995), a Ramrod Publications, out of Hermosa, California. Such stalwart writers as R.T. Lawton, Rick Brooks, and Aaron B. Larson were contributors. Clancy and Quentin Tarantino were friends at the time, so I’ve often wondered how much influence Tarantino’s 1994 movie had on Clancy’s magazine.

With issue #3, summer of 1995, Tom Johnson’s Black Ghost made his debut appearance in Clancy’s magazine. The first of four stories to star the new pulp hero, in an adventure titled “Behind The Mask”.

Clancy mentioned on a Blog that he published the magazine for three years, but there seems to be some doubt about the actual length of time Pulp: A Fiction Magazine ran. I only saw seven issues, and #7 was dated Spring, 1996. As it was, R.T. Lawton, Rick Brooks, and Aaron B. Larson quickly began writing for the Fading Shadows magazines.
