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.

UFO Hunter

UFO Hunter

Creator: Tom Johnson
Eddy Edwards
Brigadier Mitchell
Stuanofu (not a true name)

During his last hitch in the Air Force, Eddy Edwards was a supervisor in the North Dakota missile fields. One dark night strange lights had appeared in the sky above the silos, and the launch facilities lost all control of the missiles. There had been nothing his security could do about the UFOs, and the incident haunted him for the remainder of his career. Upon retirement, he went to work for AIM, a UFO investigative organization ran by a retired military officer. With his background in law enforcement, Eddy obtained a private investigator’s license and became a field operative for the group.
Eddy is a retired Air Force Master Sergeant. He is about fifty, solidly built, graying hair, beard and mustache, dark eyes, with calloused knuckles from years of karate training. He drives a big Ford XL Van, equipped with desk and file cabinets in the rear, and all of the tools he needs in the investigation of UFO reports, including camera and other devices. The cab of the vehicle has a large cassette compartment holding his 1950s-era music collection of singers like Buddy Holly, Elvis, Fats Domino and Little Richard.
Brigadier Mitchell is a retired general who now heads AIM – Alien Intelligence Monitors, while experimenting on military equipment for the government. The government knows about his interest in UFOs, and keeps tab on the balding officer, but he has too much power to be shut down.
Stuanofu (not a true name) might be a young, foreigner hitchhiking across the states. Short, maybe five feet tall, and thin, people often feel like they are in a fog when around him. The truth is the creature calling himself Stuanofu looks nothing like that. He is projecting a mental image to those around him. He is s small gray being with large, almond shaped eyes, and the pilot of a flying saucer. He is strangely connected to Eddy Edwards without the investigator’s knowledge, and appears in times of need to assist, then removes all memory of his involvement from Eddy’s mind.
