A man unconscious on a city’s shore line.  The only clue to his identity was a small medallion with a name stamped on it. Taking it for his own, this stranger to himself became one of Sovereign City’s greatest heroes!

Pro Se Productions, an independent press on the cutting edge of genre fiction, heroic storytelling, and New Pulp, proudly announces the latest volume in one of the most popular New Pulp series today- THE ADVENTURES OF LAZARUS GRAY VOLUME THREE: EIDOLON! From the mind of Award Winning Author Barry Reese!

“Heroes,”  Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of and Partner in Pro Se Productions, explains, “are not only a major part of what Pro Se does and does well, but they’re vital to New Pulp!  Pulp as a style covers many genres, but the two fisted, fast paced tales of the Hero are what people remember and want to read!  We’re fortunate enough that Barry Reese hangs his mask at Pro Se and continues to add to his own Pantheon through Reese Unlimited.”

From Pro Se Productions and Reese Unlimited -Pro Se’s inaugural Author Imprint- comes the latest chapter in the Sovereign City Project featuring one of the most popular New Pulp heroes of recent years! Thrill to tales in this latest volume as Lazarus Gray and his aides battle against their opposite number as some of their most dangerous enemies band together to form MURDER UNLIMITED! They’ve sworn to destroy Lazarus and his team, but is there another agenda that secretly guides this sinister alliance? 

Also, Gray squares off with a new foe- Eidolon! Who or what is this latest adversary! Follow Gray as he works out a puzzle that began in the steamy jungles of Peru and may end with the fall of a hero! 

“Barry Reese,” Hancock states, “not only delivers a tried and true Pulp Hero tale in the tradition of the Classic tales, he brings a definite excitement to his work.  Twists and turns combined with characterization and controlled chaos make Barry’s dialogue pop and action roll like thunder.”

The Adventures of Lazarus Gray continue explosively with a third volume full of action, excitement, and danger as Assistance Unlimited plunges into the heart of evil…but will they all survive the journey?

Also presenting SECRETS OF THE DEAD, the first in a series of illustrated features by Barry Reese and Award Winning Artist George Sellas!
