COMPANION DRAGONS TALES VOLUME 1 DEBUTS FROM PRO SE AS FIRST VOLUME OF NEW IMPRINT!

A Cutting Edge Independent Publisher, Pro Se Productions introduces another groundbreaking imprint, one aimed at the future fans of Genre Fiction and New Pulp. From the Creative Mind of Fantasy and Pulp Author Nancy A. Hansen comes COMPANION DRAGONS TALES VOLUME ONE, the first volume in Pro Se’s newest line of top quality fiction!




COMPANION DRAGONS TALES VOLUME ONE: A FAMILIAR NAME marks the debut of a new universe of action and excitement created by Hansen and authors Lee Houston, Jr. and Roger Stegman.  Nancy A. Hansen (Fortune’s Pawn, Prophecy’s Gambit) brings her top notch, beloved Fantasy style to a tale full of magic and wonder as well as its own brand of action and adventure.


In A FAMILIAR NAME, the first volume of COMPANION DRAGONS TALES, Nancy Bittergreen is a busy author. She’s also a witch who regularly travels to the wondrous worlds brought to life by magical writing. A dangerous occupation to say the least. Nancy decides she needs a familiar– a small, intelligent creature who can be trusted to watch over things while she’s gone or come to her rescue when situations get just a little too weird. The very best familiars are miniature dragons, but they come with a high price and no instructions. Unfortunately there are powerful people who would prefer all magical creatures be registered, regulated, or even eliminated! Bringing a familiar home with her becomes a race against time with a dangerous opponent as this middle aged witch has to find out her new companion’s true name before sunrise turns him to stone.

HUGH MONN IS BACK IN FIRST FULL LENGTH ADVENTURE FROM PRO SE! CATCH A RISING STAR BY LEE HOUSTON, JR. DEBUTS!

Pro Se Productions once more proves to be a leader in genre fiction with its latest release. A man of the far future plying his dangerous trade like one of the past.  1950s Sensibilities collide explosively with Science Fiction Action and Danger once again as Lee Houston, Jr. follows up his debut 2012 collection with HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE: CATCH A RISING STAR! 


Thick, red lips were just a shade darker than her crimson skin tone, but both were in striking contrast to her long orange hair. Her eyes appeared to be only irises, as black as a starless corner of the universe resting on a field of white, but that toothy smile was brighter than a supernova. She was dressed in white like everyone else, but her outfit was a sleeveless, short hemmed number at least one size too small, that did everything possible to accent every aspect of her figure.

“Do I have the pleasure of addressing Hugh Monn, the private detective?” asked the older man with an accent I couldn’t place. After all, it’s a pretty big universe and xenology wasn’t one of my strong

suits, so I couldn’t identify any of their races or species. Besides, the woman was the only one present any insensitive jerk would call ‘alien’. Outwardly, all the men appeared to be as human as me.
“There’s no pleasure involved from my perspective,” I said, while motioning my head to indicate his traveling companions. 
From Chapter 1 of HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE: CATCH A RISING STAR



Hugh Monn, the private detective of the far flung future, is back in his first full length adventure! 
In Lee Houston’s latest installment of his 1950s style detective in the future, Hugh is hired as a security consultant when actress Ruby Kwartz comes to the island nation of Galveston 2 to record a new vid.  What is supposed to be an easy assignment turns deadly when Monn discovers that everyone around Ruby has a hidden agenda and someone wants to make sure this production will be her last.  Can Hugh Monn catch a rising star before she falls? 

“After writing short stories for his first book,” states Houston, “I wanted to create longer adventures for Hugh in a second anthology, but CATCH A RISING STAR took on a life of its own and became his first full length novel.  Fans of the private detective in the far flung future not only get more action, adventure, and mystery in this tale; but more Big Louie too.”


“We’re excited,” comments Tommy Hancock, Pro Se Partner and Editor in Chief, “to not only have Hugh back for another adventure, but to see Lee push both himself and this wonderful world he’s imagined into a full length novel.   The definitely different mix of Science Fiction with the Detective genre as well as Lee’s placing of Hugh somewhere along the center of the Private Eye spectrum makes the concept a fun, exciting one and one that appeals to many types of readers.”

As for Hugh Monn’s first adventures, Ron Fortier, noted Reviewer, Author, and Publisher stated-What is particularly refreshing in these tales is that Houston wisely opts not to make his hero a hard-boiled, typically cynical type. Hugh Monn is a genuinely nice guy who likes people and aliens alike and is sincere in trying to make his world a better place for all to live in. He’s a good guy I liked meeting and hope to see him again real soon.

HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE: CATCH A RISING STAR features an excellent and evocative cover by David L. Russell as well as stunning cover design by Sean E. Ali and Ebook formatting by Russ Anderson!  Available in Print at Amazon at http://tinyurl.com/n47oso2 and from Pro Se’s own store at https://www.createspace.com/4362923 for only $15.00! This stunning addition to Hugh’s adventures is also available for $2.99 as an Ebook!

FIRST VOICE OF PRO SE AUDIOBOOK DEBUTS-HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE! FROM PRO SE AND DYNAMIC RAM!

Pro Se Productions, an independent press on the cutting edge of genre fiction, heroic storytelling, and New Pulp, was the first company formally involved in the New Pulp Movement to enter into the world of audiobooks with its original line of magazines.  Pro Se, in conjunction with New Pulp audiobook pioneer Dynamic Ram Audio Productions announce the first audio title for ‘The Voice of Pro Se’ audiobook imprint! 

Audiobooks,” Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions states, “have always been in the plans for Pro Se.  The sort of fiction we publish lends itself well to the spoken word and adaptation of all sorts.  That, and I am a major fan of Audio Fiction, from old time radio shows to modern day audio drama and especially audiobooks.   And our first trip into the medium was a great experience and to have Chris Barnes, our engineer the first time around and the man behind Dynamic Ram Audio Productions now, on board for this debut as well as what is coming, it just couldn’t be any better.”

The debut title in THE VOICE OF PRO SE Audiobook line is HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE, the novel written by Lee Houston, Jr.  One of Pro Se’s flagship characters, Hugh Monn comes wonderfully to life thanks to Audiobook Narrator Pete Milan in eight tightly written fast paced uanbridged stories. Milan is a voice actor, writer, narrator, audio drama producer and cosmopolitan jackadandy. He has previously appeared in works by Pendant Productions, the Colonial Radio Theatre On The Air, Gypsy Audio and Cape Cod Radio Mystery Theater.

“Pete Milan,” Hancock says, “channels the voice of Lee Houston’s Hugh Monn perfectly.  Hugh sounds like a 1950s type detective, but plies his trade in a futuristic setting.  In just the same way Lee blended those two things seamlessly together, Pete’s take on the stories has the nearly hard boiled edge you’d expect from a great PI tale, but there’s also that flexibility a good science fiction tale demands of a narrator.  Hands down, the team of Milan and Houston make HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE an audiobook must have.”

Even in the future, dames still need help, criminals still need captured, and men still hire out to do both!  HUGH MONN, PRIVATE DETECTIVE written by Lee Houston, Jr. and narrated by Pete Milan lets you walk the glittering, yet dark and mean streets of Galveston 2 and join Hugh Monn as he investigates cases with gorgeous green skinned dames, slick swindlers and hardened crooks while keeping one step ahead of the lawbots.  This VOICE OF PRO SE audiobook engineered and produced by Dynamic Ram Audio Productions is over 7 hours of fantastic futuristic Private Eye Action! 

Listen to the HUGH MONN trailer at http://soundcloud.com/chris-barnes-37/hugh-monn-private-detective.  And the entire Audiobook is Avaiable via Audible at http://www.audible.com/pd/ref=sr_1_1?asin=B00CQ6MJHS&qid=1368850196&sr=1-1 and from Amazon at http://tinyurl.com/bdx6lmm!

LEE HOUSTON TRAVELS ELSEWHERE IN THE MULTIVERSE

Lee Houston Jr.

The Nocturne Travel Agency’s Elsewhere In The Multiverse series continues its look at super-hero prose novels. This week, meet New Pulp Author Lee Houston, Jr. and his novel, PROJECT ALPHA novel.

From Elsewhere In The Multiverse:
If you yearn for the Silver Age, when heroes and villains were easily defined, Project: Alpha is for you.  If you miss the old-school space operas where dashing men and beautiful women had two-fisted adventures on strange planets, Project: Alpha is for you.  Lee Houston Jr.’s second series character (The first, Hugh Monn, is a hardboiled detective who plies his trade on a distant planet) is a super-hero/sci-fi mash up that will be a delight for those who want a gentler, less dark adventure for their heroes.  I sat down with Lee to talk about the series, writing and how the face of mainstream comics has changed since we both were younger.

Read the full interview here.

Up next on Elsewhere In The Multiverse is Jeff Deischer.
Stay tuned.

PROJECT ALPHA!- SUPER HERO PULP NOVEL DEBUTS FROM PRO SE!

Pro Se Productions, a leader in New Pulp, announces its latest title from Pro Se author Lee Houston, Jr.!

From the creator of Hugh Monn, Private Detective, comes PROJECT ALPHA!  A tale of cosmic proportions centered on a man with great power suddenly thrust upon him and the fate of two worlds on his shoulders.

“Although we’ve dabbled in this arena a bit with previous works,” Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief and Partner in Pro Se, stated today, “We are extremely pleased to announce our first novel that is squarely set in the Super Hero side of New Pulp!  Not only that, but it has been written by one of Pro Se’s shining stars, Lee Houston, Jr.!  This project, most definitely a labor of love of Comics, especially the Silver Age, is something special to Lee and Pro Se is proud to be able to share this truly awesome work with the world.”

PROJECT ALPHA from Lee Houston, Jr. is a prose love letter to the wonder, magic, awe, and power of Silver Age Comics!

The once peaceful planet of Shambala is on the verge of extinction. A menace of their own creation now considers himself the high and mighty ruler of all, determined to have the realm of his dreams regardless of the cost to others.  

Now the scientist responsible for the danger seeks to perform the experiment again on another world. But this planet is home to a far more primitive culture than his own. 

Even if he is successful, can ALPHA save Shambala before it’s too late? 

Lee Houston, Jr. presents an incredible new hero embarking on an amazing adventure that will push him to the limits of his newfound abilities and beyond!
