My Blog

Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

The New Pulp Heroes

A New Blog for New Pulp Hero Creators 

This Site is for essays on The New Pulp Heroes. It’s about time we catalog new characters appearing in books and anthologies. Since I do not have time to read everything being published, I will offer space here for legitimate creators of new pulp characters to send me their data, and I will post their essays. It is not my place to say what is, or what is not a new pulp hero, and the only changes I will make to essays will be editing and format. If you wish, include a jpeg of a book cover or b&w illustration if you have permission from the artist. By sending me your essays, you are giving me permission to promote and showcase this data. Eventually, it would be nice to see all the data published in book format. Currently, I only have a few essays, so information is slim. Essays should be up to 500 words, and include information on MC and back up characters, creator, title of books, and where the stories can be found. Send questions or data to


  1. O0o0o nice. I'll add this to my regular check in read.

  2. Thanks Justin, I just put a piece up about my swashbuckling heroine, Señora Scorpion. Check it out.

  3. Hi, Tom,

    I'll write up my characterThe Impostor as soon as I get Volume #2 of his adventures published for Amazon Kindle. That should be soon.
