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.

            Thorn was tall, strongly built, with jet black hair and cold gray eyes. He wore a business suit, trench coat, and hat. Across his face, around his neck, and over his hands, were inscribed hundreds of small purple marks – a seemingly endless repetition of an ancient rune known to the Teutonic and Norse and Anglo-Saxon people as Thurs, Thurisaz – and Thorn. He held a blackshorn staff in his left hand, and a long dagger hung from a sheath at his belt. Thorn was a member of Freedom Alliance, now disbanded.
            The Scarlet Sigil was colorfully garbed; tall and spare, he was clad in a black tunic and leggings, with a red cape and hood. His true name is Spencer Adams, and he was also a member of Freedom Alliance.
            Archon was another member of Freedom Alliance, but no description is given, and he did not appear in the story I read.
            There were several stories written in the series, the heroes fought against demons and spirits, Thorn is after a spirit that has taken over the woman of a human, killing the woman in the process. The spirit cannot be killed, only arrested for a period until she resurfaces.
