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 firstname.lastname@example.org

DeSoto Painting To Be Auctioned
Now that we have begun cataloging Albert's substantial holdings, it has become apparent that we must take a couple of years to work through the collection. Therefore, only a portion–still rather substantial–will be put up for bid at our 2012 Saturday Night Auction.
In order to thank the PulpFest membership for their patience, Al has decided to sell one of his most prized possessions–a recreation of the November 1934 front cover art to The Phantom Detective, painted by the original artist, Rafael DeSoto.
Visit http://www.pulpfest.com/2012/07/24/rafael-desoto-painting-to-be-sold-at-auction/ for further details, including a photo of the painting and replica of the pulp.

With the ever-rising cost of pulp-related books, Tom Johnson re-launched his old Fading Shadows imprint to see if it was possible to produce a book for under $10.00. With Gail McAbee’s birthday coming up in November, Tom chose their action-packed pulp story, “Shadowhawke: First Flight” as an experiment.
This 128-page (4 x 7) paperback is the result. Printing isn’t cheap, but we’ve eliminated the middleman. With only a few copies ordered for this experimental product, Tom is offering them on a first come basis at $10.00 (includes US postage). This was not meant for regular sales and is not available on Amazon or in bookstores. Contact me.
