ALL PULP’S New Pulp Bestseller List, the original concept created by Barry Reese, will debut on Monday, February 4, 2013.   In an effort to make sure that books that need to be included on this list are on our radar, we are asking for the following-

If you are a New Pulp Author and/or Publisher OR You’re a fan of New Pulp and you have had or know of a book published in the LAST 60 DAYS and is available at www.Amazon.com, please email allpulp@yahoo.com with the name of the book and the author.  Also, if a book is available in print, for Kindle, or both that has been published in the last 60 days, please let us know that.  Remember, this list only follows books that have an Amazon sales rating.

Also, this list may not follow what some fans/publishers consider New Pulp if it’s published by one of the larger houses.  Although there are works that are published by larger concerns that would be considered New Pulp, this list focuses on the small and medium presses that are the primary reason New Pulp is so prevalent today.  If you send in a title to be listed on the New Pulp list and it does not meet our qualifications, you will receive an email explaining why.

All Pulp is aware that the above information is slightly different from how Barry handled the list.  Even though we are going to very much keep the essence of what Barry created, he has allowed and we have decided that there will be some changes to it.  By the time the first list appears, there may be more changes or there may not.  This is a very organic project, but All Pulp endeavors to continue what Barry started in the best way possible.  


The Shadow Fan podcast returns for his 16th episode!

All Pulp endeavors to bring Fans of Pulp of All Types News, Reviews, and more about the medium/genres/style/method of storytelling we all love.   We are proud to announce that not only will we be doing just that, especially for fans of New Pulp, with the addition of a new weekly feature, but this feature is one that has its own special impact on the New Pulp field and was developed and started by one of New Pulp’s best creators!

 Barry Reese, veteran Pulp Author known for The Rook, Lazarus Gray, and many other characters and stories, began a compilation of best selling New Pulp titles based on Amazon rankings in October, 2011.  Every Monday, Barry posted the top ten best sellers from various New Pulp companies on his blog and various pages, sites, and blogs picked it up.   Very quickly, The New Pulp Best Seller List became a weekly standard and provided many titles with more publicity, a boost in sales, and a hallowed place in the New Pulp world.

Due to other commitments and demands on his time, Barry has decided that he will no longer be compiling and posting the New Pulp Best Seller List.  Recognizing, however, the impact his endeavors have had and the importance placed on the list, Barry asked All Pulp if it would be a project that we would take on and continue, giving All Pulp the ability to make adjustments and changes if we saw fit. 

All Pulp is proud to announce that beginning the Monday, February 4, 2013, The New Pulp Best Seller List, created and initiated by Barry Reese, will become a regular Monday feature on our site.  All Pulp will use the same figures that Barry has used, those being the Amazon sales ratings as they appear each Monday morning.  Although there will be some changes to Barry’s original rules, in essence, All Pulp will endeavor to continue the work Barry has done for over a year and to spotlight the current sales trends, taken with Barry’s grain of salt of course, of New Pulp titles.

“I loved doing the list,” Barry stated, “and I appreciate that it seemed to add something to the New Pulp community for many people. In the end, the weekly time commitment just became too much. I’m glad to see that the list is going to live on in another form and I’ll be checking it out each time, just like everyone else!”

Stay tuned to All Pulp for other announcements concerning the New Pulp Best Seller List, including possible expansions and ways Publishers and creators can make sure their books get noticed!

New Pulp Publisher, Airship 27 Productions‘ Chief, Ron Fortier announced a new anthology starring one of pulp’s popular characters, The Phantom Detective.

“One of those projects now in the works will be our very first PHANTOM DETECTIVE anthology,” Fortier explained on his website in his weekly Flight Log Blog where he shared Rob Davis’ sketch sketch of the character (also pictured above). “If the name sounds familiar,” Fortier continued, “it is because he truly was one of the more popular classic pulp heroes with his own monthly magazine. The thing about him that most people recall is how they would portray him on the covers in a silk top hat and tuxedo. Pretty silly when one thinks about it and the truth is he never ever appeared in that ridiculous outfit in the actual stories in the mag. Rather he wore top coat and fedora with a domino mask just as Rob has drawn him here. We are excited about doing this fan favorite and have assembled what we consider the cream-of-the-crop amongst today’s New Pulp writers to bring you his new adventures.”

The New Pulp Authors Fortier mentioned includes Barry Reese, Derrick Ferguson, Tommy Hancock, and Gary Lovisi. Airship 27’s lead artist and designer, Rob Davis will handle the illustrations.
