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

Fight Card


         We have a special treat for this month’s Fight Card release.  Fight Card: Bareknuckle Barbarian features a one-two punch of stories featuring Robert ‘Bob” E. Howard himself as the two-fisted hero of his own pulp tales.
         Award winning author Teel James Glenn writing as Jack Tunney gives life to the wonder of what adventures Bob Howard might have enjoyed had his life not ended so tragically early.
         Fight Card: Bareknuckle Barbarian sports a beautiful painted cover by Carl Yonder with text by David Foster.


Can a poor Texan pulp writer survive the bare knuckle brutality of New York? Robert E. ‘Bob’ Howard is forced to find out when he stumbles upon an impromptu match in an alley on his first day in the Big Apple. From there, it is a trip to the circus and a confrontation with a gambling overlord climaxing in a bloody fight to the finish in a squared circle of death…all before landing on the shores of old Ireland, where he will face a strange and ancient danger in a very different circle of bare knuckle justice.
        Two fisted tales straight from the days of the pulp excitement, served with a side order of ‘what might have been’ fantasy, as Robert E. Howard – the writer who gave us Conan and Solomon Kane – lives his adventures himself.
        Pulp Award winning author Teel James Glenn writing as Jack Tunney takes the readers back to a time that never was for adventures that should have been!

         As always, any mentions on your blogs or social networking sites are appreciated.
         Next month will feature a new Fight Card novel, The Guns of November, from Joseph Grant (The Last Round of Archie Mannis), which mixes boxing with historical characters involved in the Kennedy assassination.
         The Iron Fists of Ned Kelly will debut in November from Fight Card stalwart David Foster (King of the Outback, Rumble in the Jungle), taking us back into the bush with Australia’s favorite outlaw. This novel will feature a stunning cover from new Fight Card contributor Mike Fyles.
         Andrew Salmon (Fight Card Sherlock Holmes: Work Capitol) will be giving us a new Fight Card Sherlock Holmes tale to celebrate the holiday season.
         We also have upcoming books from Tim Tresslar, Jason Chirevas, David White Tommy Hancock, and others…
         David Foster is hard at work preparing those Fight Card tales not yet released as paperbacks for publication.  Your patience is appreciated.  We will get there.
         Until next month…
         Keep Punching!
