BARRY REESE’S ‘THE DAMNED THING’ RETURNS TO PRINT FROM PRO SE PRODUCTIONS!
Pro Se Productions, a publisher of Genre Fiction and New Pulp, proudly announces the latest release from its first author-centered imprint, Reese Unlimited. With new edits and a stunning new cover, Author Barry Reese’s thoroughly modern tip of the hat to classic mysteries bearing the mark of his very distinct style is in print once again. The Damned Thing debuts today in print and digital formats from Pro Se Productions.
“It’s not often,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of and Partner in Pro Se Productions, “that it can be said something written in the last few years should be considered a New Pulp Classic. I say it, however, without hesitation about Barry Reese’s The Damned Thing. Not only does Barry let you know every word on the page, every action, every plot twist is definitely his, he does it in a way that also echoes classic private eye fiction. Shades of Chandler and Hammett dance and play with murderous glee throughout Violet Cambridge’s first adventure and the great part is Barry makes it seem effortless, this blending of his own style and classic leanings. And the two together deliver one of the most unique New Pulp titles to date.”
The toughest detective in 1939 Atlanta is a woman by the name of Violet Cambridge. And she knows her job like she knows herself. All the shadows and alleys, the light and the dark. But when the search for a missing sister and the brutal murder of her partner take her into territory unfamiliar, Violet finds herself on the road to Hell in search of The Damned Thing.
Award winning author Barry Reese’s hard boiled supernatural detective thriller returns in an all new Pro Se Productions edition. Noted for pushing the boundaries of Genre Fiction, Reese takes the classic tropes of the Private Eye tale and gives them his own imaginative, bizarre twists and turns in The Damned Thing. Fans of Reese’s work will recognize characters and themes that run through Reese’s work and new readers will find intrigue, mystery, action, and terror on every page.
From machine guns to magic spells, from mobsters to monsters, Violet Cambridge will face them all in the unholy quest for The Damned Thing. From Reese Unlimited, an imprint of Pro Se Productions.
“It’s a thrill,” says Reese, “to have this work back in print, looking better than ever. Violet’s story was an important one for me, as a writer and a person, so I can’t wait for new readers to experience her journey.”
The Damned Thing features a haunting cover by Adam Shaw and logo design and print formatting and print formatting by Sean Ali and eBook formatting by Russ Anderson. Interior illustrations are by Kevin Dale Duncan.
