Lee Houston, who created "Hugh Monn, Private Detective," has another title out from Pro Se Press. Looks like "Project Alpha" has a superhero-y flavor, and deserves our support! Here's the press release:
From Pro Se Press
June 3, 2012
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!
