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.

The Voice is fourth generation Independent  Operator. At first he was called The Veil, because of the mask he wore when he showed himself in public. Later, he was given the name of The Voice because of a small gadget in his throat that changes his voice. No one knows who he is, except his parents, Mr. & Mrs. Adams (and their names are probably false).
George and Inez Sanchez are connected to The Voice. George is crippled, but has other talents that The Voice needs. George’s father also assisted The Voice.
Dr. Charles Gustov (now goes by Charles Gibson) is a German scientist. Russians captured his wife to force him to work for them, but the previous Voice (his father) rescued her, and now the doctor owes The Voice a favor.
The Coral Snake is the villain that confronts The Voice in PLUTONIUM NIGHTMARE. A case that involves the theft of plutonium from the Hardin Power Plant.
