I’ve been fighting a bit of a cold this week but hopefully it will go away and not develop into anything more severe.
The 63rd episode of The Shadow Fan’s Podcast has been uploaded for your listening enjoyment — on this week’s episode, I talk about the upcoming Howard Chaykin series from Dynamite and review two items — a radio script from 1938/1939 and a classic novel from 1935. It’s a fun twenty minutes or so of chatter about pulp’s greatest crimefighter!
A lot of folks know this but my dream job would be to write The Shadow — just once! I’d feel so much pressure to live up to the works of Walter Gibson but man, it would be awesome. My other favorite pulp hero — The Avenger — was a blast to write and I feel genuinely blessed to have been able to do it twice.
The ballot for the New Pulp Awards should be coming out soon and I’m curious to see if any of my works made the list — I always did very well when the awards were the Pulp Ark Awards and hopefully the changes in methodology and name won’t stop that. I’d really like to see some of my collaborators like George Sellas and Will Meugniot make the ballot, as well. Fingers crossed!
When the ballot is released, I’ll do another post about it here and let you know who my own picks for the various categories would be.
