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.

The Sai 

Formed in 1808, Australia has always been protected by Australis Incognito, a loose confederation of heroes fighting against injustice. The original Risque fought crime in 1920s Sydney when the Razor gangs lead by Tilly Devine and Kate Leigh ruled the city. 
In the modern day the latest generation of heroes, The Dingo, The Question Mark II, Risque III, Risk, The Knight Errant, The Cutlass and the Sai uncover a criminal mastermind creating a series of impossible crimes, a teleporting thief, a gang of inept crooks who suddenly pull off flawless heists and a gang war that never happened. Is there a connection to the original Question Mark who disappeared a decade ago?  And how is the original Risque  involved?  It’s a big mystery that needs more than one hero.
         The answers will shake our heroes to their very core and give them the fight of their lives as the secrets long hidden are revealed and the identity of the master criminal is revealed. 
The original Risque appeared in “Strip Poker” by Brad Mengel in  Poker Pulp published by Pro Se Press 2015. 
The modern day heroes appeared in Australis Incognito by Brad Mengel published by Pro Se Press 2019.
