COMING ATTRACTIONS PLUGS FIGHT CARD!

COMING ATTRACTIONS PLUGS FIGHT CARD!

THE ONE PLACE FOR ALL HOT PULP RELATED NEWS, COMING ATTRACTIONS, O0UTS OUT A PLUG THIS WEEK FOR FIGHT CARD . . .

Mel Odom and Paul Bishop teamup to create and write the pulp inspired Fight Card series!

The Fight Card series began when Mel Odom released a short story on Kindle which caught the attention of Paul Bishop, a career LAPD detective, who -like himself – grew up on pulps, Gold Medal novels, and the idea of tough guys. They talked about the story, about their mutual loves, and wished that someone still wrote stories like that. Mel and Paul ultimately decided, much to our benefit, that they would write the stories they longed to read.

The series is set in the 1950s. Mel's character, Mickey Flynn, is a merchant marine sailor who's tough as nails. Paul's character is Patrick Flynn, an LAPD detective on Chief Parker's infamous Hat Squad. The brothers grew up in an orphanage in Chicago where they were taught the "sweet science" by Father Tim. The orphanage is nicknamed Our Lady of the Glass Jaw.

Once other writers found out what they were doing, a few of them wanted on board and were granted admission to the club.

Coming up next is Eric Beetner's "Split Decision" in December.
