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.

Charles Lee Jackson II runs CLJII Pictures, and he’s also The Emperor. When trouble comes, he and his team go into action. He’s very fast, somewhat bulletproof, and a little magical; his only shortcoming is his modesty.
Richmond is never seen by the public, and works from a secret location, and has never failed to be on the job when anyone radioed or telephoned.
Max “Deck” Decker is an FBI Agent, but also seems to work for The Emperor.
Maskman is the enemy. He works for Continent-Eight, and is in the high ranks. He is tall and broad-shouldered, his identity concealed by a steel helmet.
David McDaniel is an author of assorted spy novels and SF stories, and also a proficient marksman. At CLJII Pictures he is Director of Photography and Key Film Editor. He brushes a stray lock of his pale brown hair away from his green eyes.
Robert Short works as a stuntman, and drives a car replica of Black Beauty (from The Green Hornet TV series). Wiry-haired, he also was the special effects expert.
William Mills is a pal of Bob Short. Long dark hair swept back from a thin face; he has movie-star appeal. He was an actor, but better known as a musician and stuntman
Heather McKenzie is Executive Secretary of CLJII Studios. She is beautiful, smart, has pretty blue-green eyes and soft, light brown, almost blonde, hair. She also deals with Hollywood bimbettes looking for work.
Illenya Petrina is the daughter of a Russian scientist, Pyotr Vostok. Her blonde hair was pulled into a severe bun in the back. She has a milky complexion and bright blue eyes, with an attractive figure. Having a crush on The Emperor, she’s also his lover.
Shanghai Lil is dangerous with knives and a gun. She is gorgeous, smart, witty, and talented. Strawberry blonde hair cut a little short, and green eyes; she was slim and trim. She was snug in a black jumpsuit. The little Walther hung in a quick-draw pocket under her arm. The hilts of twin knives peeked over her boot-tops as she walked.
Gayla Knight made heads turn. She wore a black-leather cat suit, trimmed in metal studs and buckles; she wore three-inch heels, as though they were moccasins. Brushed-back auburn hair, chopped off at the shoulders, framed a pretty but austere face, with just a touch of lipstick to set off her mouth. She was an Enforcement Agent for Continent-Eight.
Heruchi is the ultimate boss of Continent-Eight.
Sslanthross is an alien from the planet Sanger, a satellite that orbits the star, Koths. The aliens stand about six feet tall, and perhaps half that wide, and shimmer like some oil-skinned amoeba, with one glaring orb above a yawning toothless maw.
There have been several books released in the series to-date, but I need to check with the author for their contents.
