BOXING PULPS ON THE COMEBACK TRAIL!

BOXING PULPS ON THE COMEBACK TRAIL!

HANK BROWN (AUTHOR OF THE UPSOMING FIGHT CARD: TOMATO CAN COMEBACK) INTERVIEWS ME IN HIS LATEST DOUBLE-OUGHT PULP COLUMN OVER AT THE NEW PULP WEBSITE . . .

New Pulp is not just catching on; it's catching fire. There is more exposure to the classic pulps every day, and more authors publishing new pulpesque material. This year I caught wind of a new series resurrecting a long-forgotten pulp genre, and just had to check it out.

The series is called Fight Card. It is a throwback to the boxing pulps of yesteryear, brainstormed by Paul Bishop and Mel Odom. All the novellas in this series are set in the 1950s, which just seems to fit perfect for stories with a hardboiled noir edge. Odom, Bishop, and others are using the "Jack Tunney" house name to write under, in true pulp-writer style.
