PULP FICTION REVIEWS TAKES ON FELONY FISTS!

PULP FICTION REVIEWS TAKES ON FELONY FISTS!

PULP GURU RON FORTIER REVIEWS FELONG FISTS OVER AT HIS PULP FICTION REVIEWS BLOG ...

Punch. Block. Counterpunch. Duck. Uppercut. Jab. Haymaker. Clinch. The staccato machine-gun lingo of boxing that taps across the brain like a dance choreographed by battling gladiators. It is a ballet of flying fists, controlled mayhem performed by all manner of combatants with something to win, prove or defend. Of the entire classic pulp sports genre, the boxing magazines were by far the most popular and prolific. Now a group of today’s finest new pulp scribes (writing as Jack Tunney) have come together to recreate the blood, sweat and tears of those canvas arenas in a series of short novellas under the guiding hand of accomplished novelist, Paul Bishop ...

... What follows is a thoroughly enjoyable, fast paced, knowledgeable yarn that was a pure joy to read start to finish. Bishop never misses a beat; again, knowing his melody by heart and relishing every single sentence, paragraph and chapter like a superbly orchestrated fight strategy. “Fight Card: Felony Fists” is a sensational opening to what this reviewer expects is going to be a truly amazing series that will revitalize a classic pulp genre in a bold new way readers are going to love. Me, I'm in his corner all the way.
