In a past thread, Lumberjack asked me what exactly the New Pulp movement is.
For those who came in late...
Believe it or not, the pulp genre is alive and well today, and basically divided into three categories.
There are companies such as Nostalgia Ventures and Radio Archives that keep issuing new copies of the original material such as the Shadow and Doc Savage.
There are companies such Moonstone and Airship 27 that obtain the licenses to produce new adventures of the classic heroes.
And then there are companies such as Pro Se Press and White Rocket Books that produce strictly new creations within the pulp genre.
Of course there is some overlap between the three categories, but in the end we are all just one big happy family of fans and creative talent keeping the genre alive and kicking.
Below is an ad featuring some of the current New Pulp releases for your potential reading enjoyment.

Here's a new, pulp related blog post: Feeling blue for the Pulps
I am slowly learning the fine art of self-promotion.
With that in mind, here's an interview I recently did that some might find interesting reading:
Originally only available as a giveaway with purchase of How the West Was Weird, Vol. 2, the e-book CAMPFIRE TALES is now available at Amazon.com (for those of you with Kindles) and Smashwords.com (for those of you with any other kind of e-reader. This book includes 4 weird western short stories by Russ Anderson, Derrick Ferguson, Joel Jenkins, and Joshua M. Reynolds. For 99 cents, it's a steal!
Four astounding novellas combining the western with sci-fi and horror. This new addition to Pulpwork Press's best-selling HOW THE WEST WAS WEIRD series includes:
MR. BRASS AND THE CRIMSON SKIES OF KANSAS by Josh Reynolds. The robot Pinkerton is all that stands between President Teddy Roosevelt and an attack by sky pirates and Mr. Hyde.
HELL'S OWN by Russ Anderson. Zombies overrun a small western town, and the town's lone sheriff is the only one that's armed. Will anyone survive?
THE TALE OF THE BARON'S TRIBUTE by Derrick Ferguson. When a foe from Sebastian Red's past attacks him through his friends, Sebastian must undo the damage done to his loved ones and do battle with a foe who is, for once, in every way his equal.
GUNMEN OF THE HOLLOW EARTH by Joel Jenkins. Lone Crow, Doc Holliday, and Morgan Earp lead the surviving members of the Wild Bunch into a lost world at the center of the Earth, running afoul of dinosaurs, a tribe of barbarian women, and a posse of silver-hungry banditos who have followed them from the surface world.
So what are you waiting for? Get on over to Amazon.com and get yourself a copy!
That's a nice cover!
I, too am taking part in the New Pulp movement, working with Pro Se and their Pulp Obscura line:
For the record, Derrick is a terrific writer, known for Dillion, Sebastian Red, and a host of other wonderful New Pulp stories.
Rich is the writer/creator of Misty Johnson, as well as numerous short stories, newspaper columns, and stage plays.
As for myself, I will be contributing short stories to at least three Pulp Obscura projects over the coming year that I will talk about more as each volume comes closer to release. Meanwhile I am also working on the second book featuring Hugh Monn, Private Detective and my next novel, Alpha, is a pulp superhero adventure slated for release this Spring.
Sorry to interject a "Classic Pulp" question in the New Pulp thread, but I'm willing to bet this is a good place to get an answer:
Anyone know where I can find a checklist of Whisperer stories? (I'm primarily interested in the long-form stories from The Whisperer, rather than the back-ups in The Shadow.) I've Googled my fingers off without no success.
