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.

            18-year old Jeremiah Cotton arrives in New York with his parents to visit his sister who works in the Twin Trade Towers. He’s late getting to her office when terrorists attack the buildings, killing his family along with many other innocent people. He is caught in the rubble as the building collapses, and promises if he is rescued to become a cop to help others. Years later he fulfills that promise and works as a patrolman. He’s working a late shift with his partner one night when he sees a suspicious Chinese girl enter a building with a gun. His partner has left the vehicle, so Cotton follows the girl and finds her murdered inside.
            Special Agent Philippa Decker is with the FBI G-Team, a special unit investigating the serial killing of Asian prostitutes in several States bordering New York. Wearing a cream-colored pant suit with a white cashmere sweater, low cut, she drives a white Carera Porsche, 911 GT3, with a 500 horsepower engine. At first she has Cotton arrested, then finds him a pest when he won’t let the investigation go. After a while she becomes attracted to him, and recognizes his investigative ability.
            The murdered Asian woman was Special Agent Maggie Huang. It was never learned why she was in the building where she died, though she was with the G-Team investigating the serial killer. Her car, a black Dodge Challenger, with a 426 Hemi engine, and 425 horsepower is given to Cotton when he is accepted into the G-Team as a Special Agent under Agent Decker.
            Rashid is the reason Cotton was delayed meeting his family in his sister’s office. The black lad had stolen his wallet, and Cotton chased him to down to recover it. Later, the boy visited him in the hospital when he learned of his injuries, and they became good friends.
            With the Twin Trade Towers falling apart, people were trying to get out of the building and to safety. Cotton spots an elderly lady in a wheelchair trapped in an elevator. He pulls her to safety and carries her to the lobby and safety, then returns above to help others when he is also trapped in the rubble. The elderly lady was Sarah, and she became his adopted mother.
            Cotton’s girlfriend, Samantha is never seen, only mentioned. The other Members of G-Team are John D. High, Dilagio, and Zeerookah.
            Joe Brandenburg, Cotton’s patrol partner, is an officer on the take. He’s receiving kickback from Asian prostitutes. Although Cotton doesn’t like it, there’s nothing he can do about it, and remain a cop.
