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.

Doctor Mystery

Doctor Mystery

Creator: Dale J. Roberts
Charlie Ross

            Charlie Ross (Rosenblatt) now works in Hollywood in Special Effects. He was the son of a famous magician, Martin Rosenblatt – who had a magic act as Wu Yen.  Charlie has a thick head of hair that was once light brown, now bleached nearly golden by the California sun. He wears round-lensed spectacles, and always has a boyish smile.
            Doctor Mystery wears a pearl gray double-breasted suit, an inky black cloak of heavy silk, and a featureless black silk mask, even without holes for the eyes.
            There is only one story that I know of, and it involves a publicity stunt that goes wrong. A producer is trying to help an old actress make a comeback with a new hit movie and when a magician proposes a stunt to put her in the spotlight they go for it. But the magician sees a way to turn it to his favor by kidnapping the actress for real.
            It doesn’t take a fellow magician long to figure out the trick, and bring the culprit to justice.
            There has only been one story that I know of.
“Catch a Falling Star” TALES OF MASKS & MAYHEM #3
