HARD BOILED PRIVATE EYE PULP AT ITS BEST-THE ADVENTURES OF JOHN HASARD DEBUTS FROM PRO SE PRODUCTIONS
“Walking past an alleyway is when it hit. Suddenly, I felt a banging on my skull as though I was hit with a truck. The only thing I could see were stars. As I was going down I threw an uppercut wildly and kept throwing as I went down. I couldn't tell if I connected but I sure as hell felt a couple of good kicks to my ribs. As hard as I fought to stay awake all I saw in front of my eyes was a growing blackness. As I went out I swore I heard a voice in my ear threatening me and the squeal of tires.”
Such is the life of John Hasard, P.I. in THE ADVENTURES OF JOHN HASARD by Edward J. Indovina, the latest release from cutting edge Genre Fiction and New Pulp Publisher Pro Se Productions.
“Pulp comes in many different shades,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of and Partner in Pro Se Productions, “but one of its brightest is often times one of its darkest- the hard boiled detective tale. In a genre where there is so much claptrap, so many pastiches, so many people trying to fix something that isn’t broken with their own unique twist, it’s all sorts of refreshing to come across a P.I. like Hasard. Edward Indovina shows his roots as a fan and author are firmly planted in the Pulp tradition, bringing to mind just about any classic detective yarn you can think of. And he goes on to deliver every single word with a tense gut punch that leaves you ready to get hit again.”
In THE ADVENTURES OF JOHN HASARD, Hasard wasn't always a loner. He was made that way due to the loss of his wife, partner, and pretty much everyone else that he ever got close to.
Was he bad luck or was he just getting what he deserved?
But, Hasard isn’t alone. Whether it's a sassy cab driver, an arrogant professor, a condescending secretary, or a surly bartender, John's world is full of people who care about him and want to help regardless if he wants it or not.
The stories of John Hasard are a throwback to classic Pulp detective stories. Nasty men, beautiful dames, and eccentric sidekicks people the city and the stories that Hasard lives within. So, pour yourself a drink on the rocks, tilt your fedora, light one if you got it and perch yourself on the edge of your seat for a classic PI type two fisted read.
