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.

Tom & Ginger will be on The Book Cave discussing NEW PULP HEROES the week of January 2nd, 2014. Please listen in. http://thebookcave.libsyn.com/webpage FADING SHADOWS does not get a free ride, we have to pay the printers, it isn’t printed free, and a 280-page book is expensive to print. Not only that, but the friendly person we were working with retired, and left us in the hands of unfriendly people, so we’re now looking for a new printer for our FADING SHADOWS books. We also commissioned and paid for interior illustrations. Due to this added cost, we were forced to limit interior art to six illustrations. If we hadn’t this book would have ended up with a $24.95 price tag. This is a project I proposed three years ago, but it never came about. When the project looked like it was being revived, it looked like a go, but after waiting a reasonable amount of time it appeared interest had again cooled off. I should have released it in time for Christmas, but waiting on another publisher proved fruitless, and we decided to publish our material through our FADING SHADOWS imprint. We’ve been in the publishing business since 1982, and don’t have to rely on others. Time is right for these essays. This volume is only being sold through FADING SHADOWS, so be the first to get your copies. Fadingshadows40@gmail.com
