Lots of exciting things are going on but I can’t talk about all of them (I think you’ve heard this song before). I agreed to work on a new project this weekend — a revival of a classic radio program. It’s for a publisher that’s done a lot of New (and classic) Pulp in the past but I’ve never written anything for them. Should be fun — I’ll be immersing myself in research on the property ASAP. It’s due to be turned in around the end of September so I have plenty of time to get to work.
Things are going very well on the Gravedigger front — I’m over 16,000 words into the sequel and I think it’s good stuff. A nice team of villains, some in-depth character development for Charity and her crew and a dangerous mystery that (hold on, folks) might mean the downfall of the United States government! Yeah, it’s fun writing this stuff.
This week’s episode of The Shadow Fan’s Podcast should be a good one — I’ll be reviewing a classic novel and then taking a look at The Shadow # 14 from Dynamite Comics. I continue to be really pleased with the response the podcast has gotten from The Shadow fan community. And it’s always fun to ramble on about the character for a half hour or so.
If you haven’t ordered your copy of The Adventures of Lazarus Gray Volume Three: Eidolon yet, do so today! I think it’s the best book in the series so far — and considering that the second book won Best Novel, Best Cover and Best Interior Art in the 2013 Pulp Ark Awards, I think that’s saying something! Plus, it leads directly into Volume Four, which is already written and at the publisher… and volume four will blow you away. You’ve been warned.
I’ll be back tomorrow with more news from Reese Unlimited — and thanks for not only checking out the blog every day but for supporting our many releases and endeavors. It is noted and much appreciated.
Our image today is an example of cosplay at its finest — a meeting between Lee Falk’s The Phantom and pulp’s greatest crime-fighter, The Shadow. I’d love to read (or even better, write) a crossover between these two wonderful heroes. Good job on the costumes, guys!
