Four New Pulp creators and proclaimed members of what some are calling The New Pulp Movement, announced today that they have united to present the world with the first official New Pulp Podcast! PULPED!, a podcast focused on the works and trends that comprise and contribute to works created after the heyday of the Pulps that have the sensibilities of classic Pulp works and yet are new tales, debuted with its first episode on June 20th.
Tommy Hancock, Barry Reese, Derrick Ferguson, and Ron Fortier, all noted pulp authors and personalities within New Pulp, make up the core circle behind PULPED! Functioning as a rotating circle of hosts, the PULPED! Four will spotlight different creators and New Pulp works each week as well as discussing trends in the sub genre. There will be a News section of the podcast, but it will be slightly different than traditional newscasts. Each co-host will bring a topic of New Pulp news to the table and then the assembled hosts will discuss and/or debate it. Also, PULPED! will be the home of reviews done by THE PULPTRESS, the spokesperson for New Pulp! Each week, she will deliver a review of current New Pulp books, audio, movies, tv, and other things that qualify as New Pulp.
"New Pulp," said Tommy Hancock, "is a vibrant, relevant part of the fiction Pulp fans love and enjoy. Edgy at times, traditional at others, New Pulp shows that the fantastic heroic adventure fiction enjoyed by so many in the early 20th Century is not only still alive and well, but is on the verge of being an important part of literature of the 21st Century. PULPED!'s focus will not simply be on books, but on all aspects of how New Pulp permeates our society. It will also focus on everyone from major players in publishing and other fields right down to the small press publishers and independent creators that truly are the lifeblood of this movement."
PULPED! will post a new episode every Monday at http://www.pulped.libsyn.com/ and will be available in the coming weeks via ITunes and other providers.
"Anyone who is a writer, artist, publisher," Hancock stated, "that wants to be a guest on PULPED!, all they need to do is to send an email to email@example.com or contact any of the four hosts."
The first episode is now available at http://www.pulped.libsyn.com/ and its description is as follows-
PULPED! The Official New Pulp Podcast-Episode 1-PULPED! For The First Time!
Then Tommy and Barry take off their hosts hats and climb in the guest spotlight to discuss Barry's latest book, THE ROOK-VOLUME SIX, published by Hancock through the company he's a partner in, Pro Se Productions. The origins of the Rook, Reese's inspirations, and the logic behind Pro Se acquiring the Rook as well as future plans for the well known character are discussed in length. Following that, our intrepid co-hosts take on the PULPED! News. Each week, the co-hosts will bring one topic of New Pulp news to the table and they will discuss, analyze, explore, and debate it! If you like your fiction heroic, if you seek adventure and action in every word you read, then come on in, take a seat, and get PULPED!
PULPED! will post each Monday!

THE ROOK: VOLUME SIX FLIES HIGH FROM ITS NEW HOME-PRO SE PRESS!
Pro Se Productions
Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief
Pro Se Press, a leader in New Pulp fiction, is extremely proud to announce the first of many releases penned by Veteran Pulp Author Barry Reese and starring Reese’s best known creation, THE ROOK! THE ROOK: VOLUME SIX by Reese is now available from Pro Se Press!
Already established as one of the best known heroes of The New Pulp Movement, The Rook takes on his greatest adventures in VOLUME SIX. Reese ups the ante significantly for Max Davies, millionaire and vision driven vigilante, by setting The Rook against Sun Koh, Prince of Atlantis in the lead story, THE SCORCHED GOD! A character from German pulps of the 1930s, Sun Koh is essentially the Germanic Doc Savage and comes up against The Rook in order to take his supposed rightful place as ruler of the world. Assisted by a variety of interesting villains, most notably The Furies, three women, each one representing an Axis nation. What chance does any mere mortal man have against a near Godlike being and his bevy of deadly beauties? Fortunately, there is nothing ‘mere’ about The Rook in ‘THE SCORCHED GOD!’
The Rook continues to deliver two fisted justice in two other tales included in VOLUME SIX! Taking a trip to the Old West like no one ever has, The Rook hopes to help lost souls clear up ‘SINS OF THE PAST’! And The Rook appears for the first time ever in a story with Reese’s latest and greatest New Pulp hero! Lazarus Gray, of Pro Se’s SOVEREIGN CITY PROJECT, stands side by side with The Rook as they take on evil and injustice in ‘DARKNESS, SPREADING ITS WINGS OF BLACK’!
This volume also includes an introduction by Pro Se Editor in Chief Tommy Hancock, an interview with the author, and a timeline for The Rook and the various and sundry tales told within that universe!
“Clearly, Pro Se is more than proud and pleased to be able to put out THE ROOK: VOLUME SIX,” stated Tommy Hancock, EIC of Pro Se Press. “Barry has clearly set a standard for what a New Pulp Author and a New Pulp hero should be! And this volume is not just chocked full with adventure, but the extras give it a more rounded feel as well. Also, this represents another step toward Pro Se’s own house style of formatting, developed and designed by our own Sean Ali.”
