Pro Se Press and Reese Unlimited are proud to announce TALES OF THE ROOK, a special anthology project that will bring together many of New Pulp’s finest! The Rook has become one of New Pulp’s most popular characters and has starred in six volumes so far, with more on the way. Tales of the Rook will allow other writers to tackle the character and his world, many of whom will be doing so for the very first time. Confirmed for the book are:
* Mike Bullock * Perry Constantine * Michael Edwards * Ron Fortier * Tommy Hancock * Bobby Nash
In addition, Rook creator Barry Reese will also be contributing a brand new tale!
All stories will be set in the official Rook canon and several stories will feature cameo appearances by other New Pulp heroes.
“I’m both amazed and honored to have creators of this caliber doing stories featuring The Rook. I can easily predict that a wonderful time will be had by all who read this book,” Reese said.
TALES OF THE ROOK is expected to take flight in 2012.
