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.

Jake Bronson: Six foot 2 inches, muscular, and 35 years old. He had been an Air Force pilot until cancer had destroyed his career. Now expecting to die, he was at the VA for an MRI when an earthquake rattled the machine. Coming out of the machine he discovers newfound abilities - telepathy, telekinesis, greater speed and strength. He now has an exceptional memory and can solve deep math equations instantly.
Lacey: She spun in a classic model turn. Her long blonde hair caressed her bare shoulders with a silky shimmer. A dainty, jeweled gecko clung to the curve of one ear, setting off her sparkling blue eyes. A thin, silver snake coiled around her wrist and up her forearm; its tiny emerald eyes stared adoringly up at her. Her scoop-back, silk cocktail dress flowed over her curves like black oil, leaving little to the imagination. A part time actress, part time waitress, she is also an expert in tai-kwon-do.
Marshall: Girls seem to flock to his dark features, but he never knew how to deal with women. He is a genius with computers, but clueless when it comes to the opposite sex. He wore a white button-down shirt, khaki Dockers, and his trademark multicolored PRO-Kids high-tops. He’s smart, with hacker ability.
Tony: He has wide shoulders; he’s married, tough, and an ex-Special Forces (Green Beret) sergeant. He now works SWAT with LAPD.
