Courtesy of artist George Sellas, here’s a production sketch of two gentlemen who will soon be appearing from Pro Se Productions: Eidolon and The Darkling! The Darkling is an aging hero from the 1930s, kept hale and hearty thanks to Tibetan techniques lost to modern man. But nothing can stop time from eventually catching up to him… and before he dies, he wants to find someone to carry on in his name. And the obvious choice is a man dedicated to destroying him… right?
As part of my regular contributions to the All Pulp news site, I’ve posted a review of the Python Isle audiobook. Check it out!
I was a guest on the Earth Station One Podcast and it was a lot of fun. The podcast is available now for your listening pleasure! We talk about The Rook, my old Marvel Comics days and much more!
Just finished off The Killing Games and sent it off to Tommy Hancock of Pro Se Productions. This will be the first in their line of Cinematic Pulps and hopefully you guys will really like it. I think it turned out pretty well. It was fun to write The Rook relatively early in his career again — this one is set between “Kingdom of Blood” and “The Gasping Death” for those of you who care about such things, placing it in 1937.
The Killing Games is almost completely finished… Woot!
The Damned Thing was reviewed on Amazon by “Baloo” and he gave the book 4 out of 5 stars:
“Having read a few of the Rook books, I wanted to try something else by Barry Reese. I wasn’t disappointed. More adult than the Rook series, it was still a very good read. There’s a linkage to the Rook books, but you don’t need to have read the Rook to enjoy this book. A character from the Rook series is an important character here, but his past appearances make no impact on this story. Good supernatural fun. I wish you could give .5 stars because I’d score this a 4.5 instead of a 4.”
