Satan’s Circus Comes to Town


One of the most popular characters in the New Pulp Movement returns in an all-new volume from Pro Se Productions. Reese Unlimited, Pro Se’s first author centered imprint, announced today the release of THE ADVENTURES OF LAZARUS GRAY VOLUME FOUR: SATAN’S CIRCUS.

“Lazarus Gray,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of and Partner in Pro Se Productions, “has definitely struck a chord with readers. He and Assistance Unlimited have crossed boundaries, reaching fans outside of the general Pulp or Genre Fiction niche and that is always good. Barry has a great world he’s built here, one that allows for not only growth of his own cast, but to bring in characters from the Public Domain and other arenas. Also, he has explored some pretty heady themes behind the mask of Pulp Fiction and that adds an extra punch to not only SATAN’S CIRCUS, but to all the Lazarus Gray volumes.”

SATAN’S CIRCUS once again returns Lazarus Gray to the field of battle. The only clue to his identity was a small medallion with the words ‘Lazarus Gray’ stamped on it. He took that name and became one of Sovereign City’s greatest heroes, forming an alliance with other lost souls like himself. Together, they are Assistance Unlimited… and now they face their greatest threats ever!

From Award-winning author Barry Reese comes two pulse-pounding tales of pulp adventure: in the first, Lazarus Gray unites with the mighty Thunder Jim Wade to confront a menace from his past and in the second, the mysterious pair of vigilantes known as The Darkling and Eidolon return in a dark tale that reveals hidden secrets that will shake the world of Lazarus Gray to its very core!

Also included is SECRETS OF THE DEAD, a comic-strip origin sequence by Reese and artist George Sellas, also providing cover and illustrations! Learn the Origin of the man behind Assistance Unlimited.

“Satan’s Circus,” says Reese, “is the culmination of so many plot lines and character arcs… I’ve had the hardest time keeping all of its secrets while waiting for it to go through the publishing process! I’m thrilled that fans will finally see all the payoff that I’ve been promising. I think it’s a pretty rousing adventure and both of the stories it contains are real game-changers for the series.”

THE ADVENTURES OF LAZARUS GRAY VOLUME FOUR: SATAN’S CIRCUS features cover design and formatting by Sean E. Ali and the upcoming eBooks feature design and formatting by Russ Anderson. SATAN’S CIRCUS is available now in print from Amazon and soon from other outlets. EBook editions of the latest Reese Unlimited volume are coming soon!
