Pro Se Productions, the company sponsoring PULP ARK, the first annual Pulp Convention/Creators Conference being held May 13-15 in Batesville, Ark., announced today that major publisher Simon and Schuster is one of the many publishers taking part in the activities.

According to Tommy Hancock, Pulp Ark Coordinator, Simon and Schuster is participating in Pulp Ark in order to promote the upcoming release of a major novel by Paul Malmont.  Malmont, best known for his best selling works 'The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril' and 'Jack London in Paradise' has completed 'The Astounding, The Amazing, and The Unknown'.   This novel, a sequel to 'Death Cloud Peril' follows pulp writer L. Ron Hubbard on adventures into the 1950s that will rival the fantastic pulp tales the future cultural icon wrote.  The first book in this two-book series was a fictional romp involving Hubbard, H.P. Lovecraft, and pulp authors Lester Dent and Walter Gibson and others that carried them across the map and through two fisted, pulse pounding adventures.

"Malmont," Hancock stated, "takes real life historical personages and weaves them into these realistic, yet wildly entertaining, fast paced tales.  Pulp Ark is pleased to be able to say that various items, like postcards and such, will be handed out Saturday, May 14, to commemorate the July release of the new novel.  Also, a galley copy of the new novel will be on display and given away at 4:30 Saturday afternoon.  To register for the giveaway, all you have to do is come to Pulp Ark at 151 West Main, Batesville, Ark starting at noon Friday, May 13 and put your name in the box!  The winner will be drawn on Saturday!"
