PULP NOW: THE JURY SERIES!

PULP NOW: THE JURY SERIES!

THE BLOG PULP SERENADE HAS A COOL INTERVIEW WITH WRITER EXTRODINAIRE LEE GOLDBERG (WHO IS ALSO A GOOD BUDDY OF MINE) TALKING ABOUT HIS MEN’S ACTION-STYLE JURY SERIES, AND HIS JUST AS EXCELLENTLY REVIEWED THE DEAD MAN E-BOOK SERIES (WRITTEN WITH WILLIAM RABKIN) . . .

When Lee Goldberg was still at student at UCLA, while most of his classmates were slacking off on their homework or snoozing through class, he managed to produce not just one novel…but four! The first was called .357 Vigilante and appeared in 1985, and its story followed freelance helicopter pilot Brett Macklin who goes on a city-wide rampage for justice after his cop father is burned to death by a local gang. The novel, now titled Judgment, is everything you want in an action novel: driving plot, blockbuster-worthy spectacle, fights, explosions, and just the right amount of humor to rebound from all the destruction and keep things enjoyable. Three more books quickly followed in the series (the last of which went unpublished until recently). These action classics have since been re-titled the Jury series and are available as a collection either in print and ebook formats . . .

THE JURY SERIES

An All-New, totally reformatted, updated, and repackaged edition released on April 14, 2011.

From Lee Goldberg, the bestselling author of THE WALK, comes all four of his acclaimed JURY novels..collected into one mega-sized, pulse-pounding, thrill-ride that will leave you breathless:

JUDGMENT * ADJOURNED * PAYBACK * GUILTY

The complete saga of Brett Macklin, a one-man judge, jury, and executioner, fighting a war on terror on the streets of Los Angeles in the mid-1980s. Over 160,000 words/550 pages of non-stop action, wildly erotic sex, and wicked humor.

The series, published in 1985, under the title ".357 Vigilante," was written by Ian Ludlow... a pseudonym for Lee Goldberg, who wrote the books while he was a UCLA student, under the supervision of his professor, novelist Lewis Perdue ("The DaVinci Legacy," "The Queensgate Reckoning," "Daughter of God," etc). Goldberg would later go on to write and/or produce such TV shows as "Monk," "Diagnosis Murder," "SeaQuest," and "The Glades" and write many more novels, including THE WALK and the best-selling "Monk" series of original mysteries.

This compendium includes "Guilty," the long-lost fourth and final book in the series, which was caught up in the bankruptcy of Pinnacle Books, the original publisher, and was never published in print. For decades, it was considered "lost" and coveted by fans of the men's action adventure genre...before it was finally found and, at long last, published as an ebook.

And as a special bonus, this edition includes "Hot Sex and Gory Violence," Lee Goldberg's Newsweek essay about the writing of the series.


THE DEAD MAN #1: FACE OF EVIL

Matthew Cahill is an ordinary man leading a simple life...until a shocking accident changes everything. Now he can see a nightmarish netherworld of unspeakable evil and horrific violence that nobody else does . . .

For Cahill, each day is a journey into a dark world he knows nothing about...a quest for the answers to who he is and what he has become...and a fight to save us, and his soul, from the clutches of pure evil.
