"When The Good Is Swallowed By The Dark...There The Rook Shall Plant His Mark!"

For years, New Pulp Author Barry Reese has masterfully written the thrilling adventures of The Rook, a masked Hero of Reese's creation who is compelled through dark dreams to hunt down and destroy evil wherever it might hide! Assisted by loyal friends and a vast array of allies from the annals of Classic and New Pulp as well as Comics of a bygone era, The Rook's escapades have been a hallmark in the world of New Pulp!

Now, for the first time and under the REESE UNLIMITED imprint, Barry Reese has invited some of New Pulp's finest authors into The Rook's world to put their unique spin on the character and tell their own tales...TALES OF THE ROOK! Featuring stories by Ron Fortier, Bobby Nash, Mike Bullock, Percival Constantine, Tommy Hancock, and a brand new ROOK tale by Reese himself! 

Concerning the popularity of The Rook and his cast of characters, Barry Reese commented that the concept was still with him, six years after its debut.  In the book’s introduction, Reese says, “Others have felt the siren's call, as well. The Rook has appealed to them to the point where they agreed to write new stories featuring my hero. I'm flattered and thrilled to present the results to you. Some of the greatest writers in New Pulp have crafted their own takes on The Rook and it's a lot of fun to see where they went when given the chance. “

TALES OF THE ROOK also features an explosive cover by Bob Hall, stunning interior art by George Sellas, and outstanding format and design by Sean Ali! Ready for the best in New Pulp? Get it today in TALES OF THE ROOK! From Reese Unlimited and Pro Se Productions!

New Pulp Best Seller List (Based on Amazon Sales Ranks 5/7/12)

Reposted from

It’s that time again! Before I unveil the Top Ten, let’s go over a few of the ground rules, shall we? Those of you who have been keeping up with the list for awhile will notice a few changes in how I’m doing the list!
1) This list only tracks sales through AMAZON. It does not keep track of sales through Barnes and Noble, face-to-face or anything else!
2) This list only tracks PRINT sales. We do not currently track e-books. Exactly how Amazon calculates those things is mostly a trade secret and they vary wildly from day to day. If I checked this tomorrow, the list could be very different. This list reflects sales ranks as of Monday morning May 7, 2012.
3) In order to keep the focus on new releases, eligible works must have been published within three months of the current date. So, since this list is being done in May 2012, I’m only looking at books published since February 2012. Please keep that in mind before complaining that Title X is not listed.
4) I am no longer tracking pre-release orders. Some publishers never actually release their books and when they do, it’s months after they were supposed to be released. Everything listed in the Top Ten is currently for sale.
5) I am human. I make mistakes. If you are aware of a title that should be listed below (keeping in mind all the rules above), please let me know and I will make sure to remedy the situation.
6) I get most of my information from All Pulp, New Pulp, the Pulp Factory mailing list and a few other sites. If you think I might miss your release, let me know in advance — drop me a line and tell me when it’s being released.
Without further ado, here’s the completely and totally unofficial New Pulp bestseller list as of right now (title, then publisher, then release date, then sales rank):
1) The Sting of the Silver Manticore by P.J. Lozito (Pro Se Press, April 2012) – 37,027
2) Sherlock Holmes: The Crossovers Casebook by Various (Moonstone Books, March 2012) – 47,983
3) The Destiny of Fu Manchu by William Patrick Maynard (Black Coat Press, March 2012) - 74,580
4) Dr. Watson’s American Adventure by Erwin K. Roberts (Airship 27, April 2012) – 444,407
5) Sherlock Holmes: The Baron’s Revenge by Gary Lovisi (Airship 27, February 2012) -450,339
6) Pro Se Presents # 9 by Various (Pro Se Press, April 2012) - 509,122
7) New Adventures of Thunder Jim Wade (Pro Se Press, March 2012) – 1,065,248
8) Call of Shadows by David Smith (Airship 27, March 2012) - 1,184,5329) The Moon Man Volume One by Various (Airship 27, March 2012) – 1,631,815
10) The Ruby Files Volume One by Various (Airship 27, March 2012) – 1,677,838
Just missing the list were: Pro Se Presents # 8 by Various (Pro Se Press, March 2012) – 1,748,594, Pro Se Presents # 7 by Various (Pro Se Press, Februrary 2012) – 1,766,207, Heroes of Mars by Various (Pulp Empire, February 2012) - 1,806,335 and Lost Tribes of the Dire Planet by Joel Jenkins (Pulp Work Press, March 2012) - 2,348,579.
And it’s finally happened… a book from a non-”Big Press” has hit # 1. Congratulations to P.J. Lozito and Pro Se Press for scoring this major coup. I’ve seen Pro Se and Airship 27 come close before but nobody has pulled it off until now. Obviously, since this is the first list of a new month, several books that had been eligible no longer qualify for the list (Nancy Hansen’s latest, Pro Se Presents # 6, Under the Moons of Barsoom, etc.). We’re all still waiting on the new Doc Savage book from Altus, as well… but none of that takes away from the achievement that Mr. Lozito and his publisher have pulled off. My hat is off to them! And it’s a great sign that the top four books are all from different publishers! In addition to The Silver Manticore title, we had a new title debut in the form of Pro Se Presents # 9, which hits at # 6.
From a publisher standpoint, Airship 27 leads the way with five books in the top ten. Pro Se Press comes in next with three.
Take it all with a grain of salt, folks.

Pro Se Productions, a New Pulp Publisher noted for bringing monthly Pulp magazines into the modern era, releases today its latest issue of its award winning magazine, PRO SE PRESENTS!  The ninth issue of this New Pulp periodical features the first half of an epic new adventure set in the classic era of the Pulps featuring a mix of new characters as well as fantastic original Pulp characters that are now in the Public Domain!

THE SONS OF THOR by noted New Pulp Author Erwin K. Roberts is so much of an epic that it will consume TWO full issues of Pro Se Presents.   Beginning with Issue 9 and finishing in Issue Ten at the end of May, this story looks at the prospect of the villains of a tale being as strong as the heroes who stand against them!

 They are a legend told in fearful whispers- A terror generations old…

They believed that they were the chosen of the old Norse Gods.  They could not fail unless someone touched by another pantheon of gods intervened.  To this end, they trained themselves and their families to such extremes that even the ancient Spartans would have been appalled. 

They believed they would rule first all of Europe, then the entire world.  We thought the sect gone forever.

We were wrong.  The Sons of Thor live!

Heaven Help the Foolish Few Who Dare to Challenge THE SONS OF THOR!

Available now at and for $6.00 in print! Also available as an ebook from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and for $1.99.  Featuring Cover art and design by Sean Ali and Ebook formatting by Russ Anderson! Edited by Don Thomas and Lee Houston, Jr.!

Pro Se Productions, a leading Publisher of New Pulp, proudly announced today the release of its latest novel which features the book length debut of a character featured in two recent issues of Pro Se’s Award Winning Magazine, PRO SE PRESENTS.  Written by author PJ Lozito, Pro Se’s 12th novel, THE STING OF THE SILVER MANTICORE, takes New Pulp by storm today. 

“The Manticore is already a fan favorite,” Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor-in-Chief of Pro Se, stated.  “An instant hit since his debut in the magazine earlier this year.   PJ’s hero has definitely struck a chord with New Pulp fans, both those interested in stories that read and feel like they were written in Pulp’s heyday and those who like new insights and twists on the old style.  Giving the Manticore and his colorful cast of goodies and baddies a full length venue to play from was not only an easy decision, it was most definitely the best place for both writer and creation to display pure New Pulp awesomeness.”
