So in a post that was in the New Pulp Facebook group (sadly, it seems to have been deleted…), we were all informed that proceeds from the Legends of New … Continue reading Legends Fiasco
A couple of new reviews have been added to Amazon lately so let’s take a look at what people are saying.
First up is Ray Bara with a review of Gotterdammerung:
Great Crossover Story from One of the New Pulp Masters – 5 Stars
Another great work by Barry Reese! I loved seeing all his creations (and then some) in a single volume. I loved the action. I loved seeing the Lovecraftian angle to the plot. I loved his interesting use of time travel. The one thing I disliked was the character he killed off; I hope he rectifies that in a later story. Overall, though, this was another Reese masterpiece. Go read it!
Thanks, Ray! I’m glad you enjoyed it — and the death will be a major plot point in The Adventures of Lazarus Gray Volume Six, currently scheduled to be released from Pro Se in December 2016!
Bob Deis gave five stars to Legends of New Pulp Fiction:
An amazing and significant anthology showcasing stories by the best writers and artists in the realm of “new pulp”
The editorial pilots at Airship 27 – the prolific writer/editor/publisher Ron Fortier and equally prolific artist and book designer Rob Davis – have played a major role in establishing and promoting the genre of novels, stories and comics referred to as “new pulp.” The list of new pulp books put out by their Airship 27 imprint in the past few years is jaw-dropping. For anyone who is a fan of that genre, or interested in learning about it, their amazing anthology LEGENDS OF NEW PULP FICTION is a must-read. It includes stories by more than 60 of the best writers in the broad and diverse realm of new pulp, plus top notch illustrations by nearly 40 talented artists. This is a massive and significant book, almost 800 pages long. The stories cover just about every niche in the new pulp realm, from fantasy to exotic adventure to neo-noir. It’s the kind of book that is normally a retrospective of a genre, like an anthology of classic science fiction stories. In this case it showcases stories by the writers and illustrators who are creating a new genre that will someday be viewed as classic. You can’t read all the stories in the book in a short period of time. But whenever you’re in the mood for some good, new-fashioned, escapist pulp, you’ll enjoy being able to read one of the stories in LEGENDS OF NEW PULP FICTION. I know I have.
It was an honor to contribute to this collection, Bob. I’m glad you enjoyed it!
