For Immediate Release
The New Adventures of Foster Fade, The Crime Spectacularist Debuts!
Pro Se Productions, a leading Publisher of Genre Fiction and New Pulp, announces the release of its newest entry in its PULP OBSCURA Imprint. In conjunction with Altus Press, Pro Se brings classic Pulp characters often long forgotten back to modern readers by producing new stories penned by the today’s authors. Although the characters have usually entered into the Public Domain, the latest PULP OBSCURA volume features a character licensed from the estate of perhaps the most well known of all Pulp Writers- Lester Dent.
THE NEW ADVENTURES OF FOSTER FADE, THE CRIME SPECTACULARIST features a character created by Lester Dent, the man responsible for Pulp Fiction’s greatestand most enduring adventurer, Doc Savage. Fade first appeared in Dell’s All Detective Magazine in 1934. A private investigator employed by a major newspaper to investigate the strange and the bizarre, Fade encounters danger and action with his assistant, Dinamenta ‘Din’ Stevens, a reporter who writes about Fade’s incredible exploits. Armed with extraordinary instruments of scientific wizardry, Fade and Din are back on their beat and plunging headlong into adventure.
“It’s truly an honor,” says Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “to have the chance to be the home for a collection of new Foster Fade tales. Although we all know Lester Dent for giving the world Doc Savage, he contributed so many other colorful characters as well, many of them laying the groundwork for Doc and his companions. Fade is a character with similarities, yet dramatic differences to Doc Savage. The interplay between Fade and Din and the almost arrogant confidence that Fade pours into every adventure makes the stories not only exhilarating and thrilling, but a whole lot of fun as well. Thanks to Matt Moring with Altus Press for helping Pro Se have this opportunity as well as to Will Murray and the heirs of Norma Dent for allowing myself, Pro Se, and the creators in this book to be a part of this project.”
THE NEW ADVENTURES OF FOSTER FADE, THE CRIME SPECTACULARIST contains six tales featuring mechanical marvels and maddening mystery from Adam Lance Garcia, Derrick Ferguson, Aubrey Stephens, David White, and H. David Blalock. With a fantastically rendered cover by Mike Fyles, the book also features format and design by Sean E. Ali for print and Ebook design and formatting by Russ Anderson. This is the first of two volumes featuring characters licensed for use by Pro Se Productions from the heirs of Norma Dent.
