Pulp Writer Extraordinaire

11746dcd0c65886c_Kate-Upton-Elle-2Hello, folks!

I just uploaded the 46th episode of The Shadow Fan Podcast, so you can head over and download that one if you’re a fan of pulp’s greatest crimefighter. At the end of the episode I reveal who will be joining me on the 50th episode! I think people will really enjoy the conversation I had with this famous Shadow creator.

Work continues on the Lazarus Gray/Brother Bones crossover story. I’ve crossed the 6,000 word mark so I think we’re making good progress. Once I’m finished with it, I’ll pass it on to Brother Bones’ creator, Ron Fortier, for his approval and comments. If he gives it the green light, then I’ll have knocked out two of the five stories that will run in Lazarus Gray v. 5. It all adds up, doesn’t it? It’s interesting to note that once that book is released, I’ll have written almost as many Lazarus Gray books as I have The Rook.

I’ll be at Avalon Comics this Saturday from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm so if you’re in the Macon, Georgia area, please stop in and say hello! I’ll be there selling and signing books. Avalon is a great store and it’s located down the road from a Red Lobster so you can do what I’m doing and grab lunch afterward. Pulp fiction and cheddar bay biscuits… where could you go wrong?

I’ll be exchanging emails with my frequent collaborator George Sellas this morning, firming up our schedules for the next few months. Even though Chris Batista and Jen Broomall have been doing work with me lately, don’t think I’m letting George slip away. He’ll continue defining the looks of my characters for a long time to come, if I have anything to say about it!

Our accompanying photo today is of the lovely Kate Upton. She’s obviously doing some reading in bed, which makes it appropriate for inclusion on this blog. ‘Cause we promote literacy and stuff.

Plus, it’s Kate Upton.

    Hi Barry,
    Just listened to episode 46 of the Shadow fan podcast. I was very happy to find out that Michael Uslan will be your surprise guest on episode 50. I can’t wait to hear his view on our favourite pulp character. I think it’s a great idea to have writers & artists share their insider stories with the fans and I hope this is the first of many Shadow creator interviews to come.
    Keep up the good work!
    Pat Casey
