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

Book Review

EXCITING PULP TALES by Tom Johnson: If you are a male of a certain age, i.e.,
you remember learning to drive on dirt roads, then you will also be acquainted
with pulp magazines, radio show thrillers, and other sundry leisure activities
of the 1950s. This sequel to Tom Johnson's PULP DETECTIVES anthology, brings you
ten more all-new stories featuring classic pulp heroes such as The Angel, The
Green Ghost, The Cobra, The Crimson Mask, Gentle Jones, The Purple Scar, Funny
Face, Mr. Death, The Jungle Queen, and Ki-Gor. Neither long on plot nor always
politically correct, to read them is to hear once again, the clackity clack of a
manual Remington typewriter, smell the aroma of a cheap cigar, and know that at
least in one part of one's life, good will overcome evil. So sit back and enjoy
stories even dames can like.
