The final book in the New Kingdom Trilogy COMING SOON

Here it is... The back cover blurb for the third and final book in the New Kingdom saga. Reckoning... COMING SOON

THE FINAL CHAPTER HAS BEGUN:

The seven seals are broken. The Four Horsemen are riding. The apocalypse has begun. All that stands between the end of the world and the chance for a future is the Sheriff of New Kingdom, Nebraska - Caleb Johnson.

Almost four years have past since Caleb arrived in the small wayward town, the nexus of all-evil. Trained to fight the dark forces by an angel named Eve, he uses his new skills to hold back the malevolent monsters bent on mayhem and total destruction.

Aiding him in his fight to save the future, is his deputy, a werewolf, Peter Prokofiev. His lover and demon hunter, Adelaide Turner, and Howard Pittman, a former slave turned reverend who trusts God will save them all.

But the balance of power shifts when a pit into Hell opens inside of New Kingdom, granting ancient and long forgotten evils an entrance into the earth.

In a last ditch effort to reforge the seven seals and stop the apocalypse, Caleb and his group fight one final desperate battle. The winner takes all, and the price of losing will cast everyone into eternal damnation.

In the final moments New Kingdom will face its fate and the dramatic confrontation will leave you wanting more.

Origins of Pulp

Pulp magazines (often referred to as "the pulps") are inexpensive fiction magazines that were published from 1896 through the 1950s.

In recent years the term New Pulp has crept up in modern story telling and a resurgence of the classic style. My Captain Hawklin series is very much a part of that genre.

The term pulp derives from the cheap wood pulp paper on which the magazines were printed; in contrast, magazines printed on higher quality paper were called "glossies" or "slicks". The typical pulp magazine had 128 pages; it was 7 inches wide by 10 inches high, and 0.5 inches thick, with ragged, untrimmed edges.

 In their first decades, pulps were most often priced at ten cents per magazine, while competing slicks cost 25 cents a piece. Pulps were the successors to the penny dreadfuls, dime novels, and short fiction magazines of the 19th century. Although many respected writers wrote for pulps, the magazines were best known for their lurid and exploitative stories and sensational cover art. Modern superhero comic books are sometimes considered descendants of "hero pulps"; pulp magazines often featured illustrated novel-length stories of heroic characters, such as The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Phantom Detective.

Today such writers as Bobby Nash, Henry Walton and Forrest Dylan Bryant are only three names who have become popular in the New Pulp arena and I am privileged to be among them.
