Pro Se Productions, a leader in Genre Fiction and New Pulp publishing, announces today plans for the first volume in its newest imprint, PULP STUDIES. Noted New Pulp Author I. A. Watson analyzes and discusses interesting and often unknown points of history, fiction, and more in a collection of essays that, as the title suggests, looks at sources of the tales that have fascinated readers, and even listeners, for years, decades, and centuries.
“WHERE STORIES DWELL,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of and Partner in Pro Se Productions, “is really just a dream project for me. To have a company that produces New Pulp and great Genre Fiction is awesome, but when we can bring you the esoteric research of a truly astounding writer like Mister Watson, and that research is as exciting as any of the stories we publish, then that’s kudos for a history hound like me. The tales woven in this volume aren’t just the type to fill writers’ and artists’ heads with ideas. They are adventures, each in their own right and delivered in just that way.”
WHERE STORIES DWELL is a collection of thirty five essays written by Watson covering a broad span of topics. As he carries the reader from distant land to great battlefields, Watson also discusses story structure, how to end tales, how to use what where, and most of all, endeavors to fulfill the title- to show readers indeed where stories dwell, where ideas can come from and his own insight on how to present them.
The volume features such an assortment of subjects and spotlight several events, tales, and more. From the book itself, the following list illuminates the nature and breadth of the work-
