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.

In 1980 a supposed Satanists group tortures a prostitute in a curse to bring forth a Demon. White Falcon learns of this and invades the staged set where a demon appears and kills the hero. Malcolm White, the adopted son of Edmund’s and his protégé, Black Dove escapes. Two decades later, the Disciples of Baphomet are being murdered, and Cynthia Rodriquez, the daughter of Victor Rodriquez, a cop killed in the 1980 incident wants to investigate the new crimes.
            Black Dove: The black-clad assailant retracts and sheaths his steel baton. Though the doorman was much larger, the slim intruder was more nimble. It was his crash helmet and goggles Joe mistook for a bird’s face. Though the effect was intentional, with the padded tactical armor, backpack and the way his head peeks out of the high collar of his vintage leather motorcycle jacket, he looks more like a mix between a riot cop and a cowboy.
            The stealthy attacker relieves Joe of his handgun and heads for the exit. In a series of swift movements he dismantles the weapon and tosses the parts in a festering toilet. Cracking the door a bit, the invader peeks out at the secret event in progress and adjusts the dial on his sleek night vision goggles to zoom in on the congregation.
            There’s only one novel so far.
“The Legend of Black Dove” (2018)
