News, Updates and Reviews!

thumbsupHello and welcome back to another day at Ye Olde Blog!

After much contemplation, I took the plunge and returned to tumblr. If you’re brave, you can give me a follow over there and I’ll do the same for you. It’s mostly going to be just pictures and videos of things that excite me.

Didn’t get much writing done yesterday. I just couldn’t get into this Pulse Fiction thing I’m working on, even though I got off to a good start last week. Hopefully the magic will return.

Over at Amazon, a number of folks have been commenting on my books. A reader named John posted the following about The Adventures of Lazarus Gray Volume One:

My First New Pulp book and I loved it! I have read several Doc Savage and The Shadow novels from the 30s and 40s and I loved them. I was a little hesitant about the New Pulp, but Barry Reese has nailed it. I enjoyed The Adventures of Lazarus Gray even more than the original pulps that I have read. 5/5 stars.

Thanks, John! I’m thrilled that you enjoyed the book and I hope you’ll continue to check out New Pulp works – both from myself and from others. There’s a lot of good pulp adventure out there. And I’m deeply honored that you enjoyed my book more than the Doc Savage and The Shadow novels you’ve read. High praise, indeed!

Meanwhile, Shadowman: The Red Sash has gotten two reviews so far. My Pro Se publisher Tommy Hancock said:

Barry Reese’s ‘THE RED SASH’ featuring Valiant’s Shadowman is typical of Barry’s work. That is to say, it is exciting, well paced, full of emotion and characterization, and great read for anyone who is a fan of comics, pulp, action adventure, and the like. Barry brings his own touch to Shadowman and it definitely makes the story stand out.

Doc Panic’s review went like this:

This was an enjoyable book from start to finish. I have read probably all of Barry’s work, and this story like most of his others, was very well written. Pulpy goodness bestowed upon a comic character. Highly recommended!

Thanks, guys! So far, I’d say that most of the people reading The Shadow novella are people who are already reading my other works. I was curious to see if I’d pick up any new readers — it’s too early to really tell. Hopefully Valiant fans will eventually sample this story and then jump onto Lazarus Gray or Gravedigger. Fingers crossed.

I haven’t watched episode two of Sleepy Hollow yet but I really liked the first show. As many of you know, I’m a sucker for The Headless Horseman and used him as the big bad in the first Gravedigger book. If you’re looking for a pulpy supernatural way to spend an hour on a Monday night, I think Sleepy Hollow will fit the bill.

See you guys tomorrow!
