So, this has been a busy week hasn’t it? First, I yelled at a guy. Then some stuff with giant monsters. Then, suddenly, my newest novel, The New Adventures of Jim Anthony, Super-Detective: The Death’s Head Cloud arrived on the scene!
Take a look at that stunning Mike Fyles cover:
And here’s what the publisher had to say about it:
In 2012, Pro Se Productions, an independent publisher of Genre Fiction and New Pulp, launched an exciting new imprint in conjunction with Altus Press, the leading publisher in reprinting Classic Pulp Fiction. PULP OBSCURA focused on producing new stories featuring classic characters from Pulp’s Golden Age, often overlooked and forgotten since they were originally published.
The eighth PULP OBSCURA title debuts this week and it is a milestone for the imprint, usually known for its anthologies. This latest release is the line’s first full-length digest novel.
THE NEW ADVENTURES OF JIM ANTHONY, SUPER-DETECTIVE: THE DEATH’S HEAD CLOUD by noted Author Joshua Reynolds introduces the latest new tale featuring one of Pulp’s most unique obscure characters!
Originally written by such greats as Robert Leslie Bellem, W. T. Ballard, and Victor Rousseau Emanuel, Anthony was a ‘half Irish, Half Indian, and All-American’ Adventurer who inherited great wealth and has amazing mental and physical abilities. Scholar, businessman, scientist, criminologist, inventor-Jim Anthony is prepared to face any danger, solve any mystery and overcome any challenge in his battle for justice!
In ‘The Death’s Head Cloud,” a smothering fog of doom heralds a terror that leaves a pile of bloody corpses in a busy subway station! The Death’s Head Cloud strikes swiftly, snaring innocents in its foul grip, leaving madness and death in its wake! Will Jim Anthony be able to solve this mystery or will he also succumb to this terrible menace?
“Jim Anthony,” Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor-in-Chief of Pro Se Productions says, “is a character that is fairly familiar to hardcore fans of Classic Hero Pulp Fiction, but not so much beyond that. He was in some ways an attempt to clone more successful characters of the period, but in that attempt to garner success without outright copying a character, some extremely quirky, unique characteristics were mixed into both Jim himself and his stories as a whole, really making him stand out as his own character. In his previous tales featuring Jim, Josh captured the great over the top feel of Anthony’s world and when he and I discussed bringing him as a creator into the PULP OBSCURA line, the fact that we had an Anthony volume planned seemed like a perfect fit.”
Joshua Reynolds, known for previous works featuring this classic Pulp Character, breathes new life into Jim Anthony in this PULP OBSCURA release. Reynolds is a professional freelance writer. In addition to his own work, he has written for several tie-in franchises, including Gold Eagle’s Executioner line and Black Library’s Warhammer Fantasy line. Josh has also written several stories previously for Pro Se Productions as well as writing both Anthony tales and other stories for numerous New Pulp and Genre Fiction publishers.
