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.

         Captain Anthony Adventure is a giant in height and weighs 270 pounds, but unless he was seen next to someone it was difficult to judge his height and weight, for he was a perfect specimen of manhood. His physic was not bulky, but highly toned and shaped.
         Harrison “Slim” Mosby was slender and wispy, and most probably the best Shakespearean actor the Great White Way had ever produced. He swung an ominous black sword cane as if bent on murder.
         Samuel “Sam” Clements Tolliver was five foot tall and weighed 260 pounds, but moved lightly on his feet like a trained boxer. He was a chemist of great note.
         Carl “Tip” Phillip Tipton is a world-renowned paleontologist, whose greatest joy in life is breaking panels out of oak doors with his massive fists.
         Roger Egan Gordon, better known as “Reg” to his friends, is a world famous physician.
         Terrance “Terry” Carter Moberry is a physicist by trade.
Dora & Kelly are twin sisters, and famous acrobats and aerialists on the high wire and trapeze. And like all the Adventurers, they are always ready to travel the world in search of adventure and excitement.
         There has only been one novelette so far.

“Terror In The North Country” (NTD) 2011 anthology.
