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.

Mr. Midnight

Mr. Midnight

Creator: Paul V. Fornator
Mike Knight

            Mike Knight is a night school teacher, making very little money. But he has a side job. He becomes Mr. Midnight at midnight. Mr. Midnight slipped his mask on; it was one of his inventions. It was a gas mask with an amplified speaker. He carried small pellets of tear gas.
He was something of a Robin Hood thief, stealing from the criminals and drug dealers, and giving the money to the poor of the city. His roommate, Jack criticized him for not keeping some of the loot to help pay their rent.
            He has extensive combative skills, and usually has to punch a hoodlum or two in the tales. And is very athletic.
            Jack is his roommate, friend, and associate.
            The stories are fairly short, with Mr. Midnight moving in on drug dealers, tossing tear gas pellets under their noses, then knocking the bodyguards out with his fists or knees. There have been seven stories in all.
