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 Pulptress

“Black Mask, Big City” by Tommy Hancock is a short story scheduled for an upcoming collection from Pro Se Press featuring the new pulp heroine, The Pulptress. This little 7,000-word story is short on character background, but has the requisite fight scenes. Contemporary pulp, the setting is in New York. Names like Fortier, Plexico, and Dilan pop up, as the author gives homage to his writing partners. Ron Fortier, Derrick Ferguson, Robin Bailey, and Barry Reese are writing other stories for this collection. More will likely be added.

Lots of colorful prose in the author’s writing, and “Black Mask, Big City” is a neat story to introduce the readers to The Pulptress. I’m sure we will see more adventures of this masked heroine down the road.
