Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions and member of the New Pulp Movement announced today that the first ever tale of THE PULPTRESS, 21st Century Pulp Heroine and spokesperson for Pro Se and New Pulp, would be available for anyone interested for FREE for a period of one week.
“The Pulptress,” Hancock said in his statement, “is a concept and a figure that has already drawn much interest since her debut two weeks ago at Pulp Ark. But she’s more than that. She is just a hint at all that New Pulp has to offer any reader, from the uninitiated person to the avid, obsessed Pulp fan. There’s a vibrance, an excitement to The Pulptress that draws directly from the vibrant exciting pace and and action that New Pulp is rifled with. And to celebrate that connection as well as to put a little more New Pulp out there, we’d like to offer this first tale of The Pulptress for free to any takers for a limited time. And New Pulp fans take note-There is a special guest star in this first tale that many New Pulpsters may recognize.”
The tale, written by Hancock, is one of a collection that is being written and will be printed by Pro Se Productions when complete. Other writers currently participating in this collection include Derrick Ferguson, Robin Bailey, Ron Fortier, and Barry Reese.
In order to get your free copy, email Hancock at email@example.com between now and Sunday, June 5th, 2011 and the story will be emailed to you directly.
“This is an opportunity,” Hancock pointed out, “to introduce your friends who may know nothing of New Pulp to the Movement and get others interested in the heroic fiction some of today’s best writers are producing!”

AP: That brings up a good final question. Where is home? Who are you when you hang up the mask on the hook beside your fedora? Who are you when you’re not The Pulptress?

|Tommy Hancock, PULP ARK Founder and Coordinator
in front of the con location!
Even though the first ever PULP ARK Creators Conference/Fan Convention didn’t officially open its doors until 12 Noon Friday, a few stalwart individuals made their appearance in the humble little burg of Batesville the night prior. Bobby Nash, writer and Conventioneer extraordinaire was the first to appear at 151 West Main Street, formerly the Batesville Grand Opera House, currently the Cinnamon Stick Restaurant and Coffee Shoppe. Not long after Bobby came Dr. Art Sippo, one half of the Book Cave Podcast duo and author of SUN KOH: HEIR OF ATLANTIS. Art actually stayed until the set up and rehearsal for…well, that’ll come in a bit…
|Pro Se writers Ken Janssens and Lee Houston Jr at PULP ARK!|
Following set up on Thursday night and meeting up with Joe Gentile from Moonstone and Nancy Hansen, Ken Janssens, and Lee Houston Jr. from Pro Se Productions, all grew quiet until the following morning. Other faces showed up at the Comfort Suites for breakfast on Friday, including Rob Davis and Ron Fortier with Airship 27 Productions and veteran author Barry Reese and his fantastic family. Good conversation was had by all, basically the how-are-yous and get-to-knows…then it was off to the venue!
|Wayne Skiver of Age of Adventure getting ready for business!|
For those who did not come, even pictures won’t do much justice to how awesomely cool the building we held PULP ARK in was. Originally built in the 1880s, much of the original woodwork and such is still there, but its not a pristine glowing artifice. It’s a cool, old building with an awesome below ground room. Lovingly called ‘the dungeon’ by PULP ARKers this weekend, this room was originally the dressing rooms and props area for the Opera House and the walls are the exposed original stone. Also, the lighting is low and the air is just slightly musty, so it gave a great ‘cavern’ feel to the room, easily everyone’s favorite part of the venue.
|Wayne Reinagel’s epic table for his epic tales!|
Once set up was done that morning, we’d added Scott and Patrick Cranford, Scott being a writer with Age of Adventure, and Ric Croxton, the other half of the Book Cave, and unlocked and opened at 12 Noon. Although business was slow from a ‘fan’ standpoint, some selling took place between those of us that made up the ‘Pulp crowd’ as well as people curious as to just what a ‘Pulp Ark’ was. The biggest plus of the day…and of the entire weekend actually…was the opportunity to meet people most of us had never physically met before and the resulting fellowship. Not to mention the ideas…ohhh, the ideas that blossomed.

Most of our other guests and such ventured in in the late evening, including Derrick Ferguson with Pulpwork Press, Carol Fuller Samelson, Bob Kennedy, Van Plexico with White Rocket Books, Wayne Reinagel with Knightraven Studios, writer Terry Alexander, artist Pete Cooper, Pulp Dealer David White, Springfield Comics’ Ron Hamilton, and Megan Smith, writer for Pro Se Productions.
|OK, so Domino Lady on the right…
But who is that masked adventuress with her? hmmmm…
Also, PULP ARK had a couple of visitors on this first day, visitors of the female AND masked variety. One was very familiar to most Pulp fans in her black DOMINO mask and her LADY like dress and cape. The other, however, was a mystery for much of the convention….one that revealed its bubbly, actiony adventury self later…
The official programming began at 4:30 PM with…well, that’ll wait until the next report, now won’t it? Not long, kiddoes, not long!

You can also see all of the bonus features of the book here:
RWA is a unique blend of nostalgia and hard-hitting western pulp action from the pen of DONALD F. GLUT (THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, BROTHER BLOOD, and TV’s TRANSFORMERS) and pulp celebrity LESTER DENT (DOC SAVAGE, THE AVENGER).
The book features the novella “Who Really Was That Masked Man?” — a tall tale about what happens when all of the classic western stars from those thrilling days of yesteryear encounter one another and embark on a six-shooting, whip-cracking adventure. This is the story that fans of western pulp, serials, comics and old time radio have been waiting for years to read!
In addition, the Legendary Lester Dent contributes a never-before-published story “Snare Savvy” featuring Haw Kain, a slow-talkin’, but quick-witted cowboy from Montana who runs afoul of some greedy land grabbers. There’s also a fast talkin’ gal who catches Haw’s eye, and makes his job of stopping the crooks all the tougher.
This one-of-a-kind western pulp features many exclusive extras:
A comprehensive article on the great radio, comic and serial western adventure heroes (GENE AUTRY, HOPALONG CASSIDY, ROY ROGERS, SUNSET CARSON et al) that influenced the creation of “Who Really Was That Masked Man?” This article is lavishly illustrated with stills of young Don in his childhood cowboy outfits roaming the range of boyish imagination in Chicago.
A tribute to Jim Harmon, the man to whom this book is dedicated. Jim Harmon was a good friend, author and ardent western radio fan, historian and wrote of many books on the subject including the definitive THE GREAT RADIO HEROES.
A gallery of RARE STILLS featuring iconic western stars and autographed to Don Glut.
A behind-the-scenes peek at “Snare savvy” by noted author and pulp historian Will Murray.
and much more!!!
BARRY REESE NOMINATED FOR GEORGIA AUTHOR OF THE YEAR!
Barry Reese, recent winner of the PULP ARK 2011 BEST AUTHOR award and Spectacled Seven member at ALL PULP, has been nominated for a Georgia Author of the Year Award. His novel RABBIT HEART (also a nominee for Best Book in the 2011 Pulp Ark Awards) is eligible in the Fiction category. This year’s awards will be handed out on June 11, 2011 at the Kennesaw State University Center.
From the Georgia Writers Association Website:
The Georgia Writers Association recognizes Georgia’s authors of excellence by presenting the Georgia Author of the Year Awards. The GAYA has the distinction of being the oldest literary awards in the Southeastern United States while reflecting the current publishing world. The GAYA honors both independently published authors and those whose books are published by traditional publishing houses. The Awards have grown in prestige and participation since its inception in 1964 by the Dixie Council of Authors and Journalists. The GAYA changed hands in 1990 to Georgia Writers Association and in 2006 GWA began a strong affiliation with Kennesaw State University’s Department of Humanities. In 2006 over 100 books were nominated for Georgia Author of the Year. The GAYA covers the traditional categories of Poetry and Fiction, while accommodating the growing Creative Non-Fiction genre. The guidelines are revised each year to parallel the changing literary marketplace.
