Pro Se Productions, known for cutting edge New Pulp and Genre Fiction, takes readers back in time to an idyllic era when wordslingers and shutterbugs stood up for the innocent and undefended! Newsprint mingles with gunsmoke in Pro Se’s latest anthology- NEWSHOUNDS!
News For All, Justice for the Innocent and Weak! That is the Masthead of The Partisan and the mission of its keepers in Pro Se Productions’ action packed tribute to the printed press- NEWSHOUNDS.
“Newspaper Mystery/Crime Fiction,” says Tommy Hancock, Pro Se Productions Editor in Chief, “is a subgenre that has sort of been lost to the ages. From the novel ‘Flashgun Casey’ to ‘Call Northside 777’ through the fantastic radio show ‘Nightbeat’ and beyond, mystery solving reporters and two fisted editors walked mean streets for decades, finding dope to put away the guilty and free the innocent. NEWSHOUNDS is Pro Se’s tribute to both the newspaper field and that wonderful area of fiction full of colorful characters.”
Dogged reporters, crusty editors, copyboys and cub photographers with dreams of grandeur. Pressmen who know the city lives and breathes by what they print. Characters like Editor ‘Red Dillinger, reporters Viv Bailey and Ted Boland, photographer Margie Haviland, and more all work for The Partisan, a 1950s paper partial to the common man, to righting the wrongs done against the housewives and the blue collars. And this gaggle of hard bitten, hard fighting men and women are known near and far to those who love them and those who wish to see them dead! Do No Wrong in Their City unless you want it covered by the Newshounds.
Authors Kevin Paul Shaw Broden, Shannon Muir, and J. Walt Layne bring life to the chaotic adventures of a larger than life newspaper staff in this three story collection.
Only two types of people work at The Partisan- Those truly interested in standing up for truth and justice and what’s right…and those with a death wish or nowhere else to go.
Either way, they make great stories for Pro Se Productions’ NEWSHOUNDS!
Featuring a cover by Kevin Paul Shaw Broden, cover design and print formatting by Percival Constantine, and EBook formatting by Russ Anderson, NEWSHOUNDS is available in print from Amazon and Pro Se’s own website at www.prose-press.com for $9.00.
