In late 2014, Pro Se Productions, a cutting edge publisher of New Pulp and Genre Fiction, announced two new series being added to its 2015 schedule. Both series feature a character newly licensed to Pro Se, that of Peter Pixie, a popular Convention Master of Ceremonies and performer. Today, Pro Se Productions announces open calls for submissions for both series The Adventures of Peter Pixie and Peter Pixie: Mayor of the Multiverse.
The entertainer known as Peter Pixie has worked in the Convention business since the 1980s. He has been everything from volunteer to Convention Chair. His love of conventions and all those people crazy enough to throw them truly shines through now that he serves as a Master of Ceremonies for numerous conventions, as well as other events.
As a professional Master of Ceremonies, he has had the honor and distinct pleasure of participating in some amazing events all round the country. Peter is a natural born entertainer. During times he is on stage he owns it and makes everyone happy they are there - the audience, guests, staff - every one! When not on stage, Peter goes to autograph lines to interact and entertain the attendees so they will not feel like they are attending a 'Line Con.’ He also mingles with attendees all weekend ensuring everyone is having a good time.
“The concepts for these series,” says Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro Se, “is really wonderful. Although The Adventures of Peter Pixie will be aimed at a more general audience and Peter Pixie: Mayor of the Multiverse will be a YoungPulp! title, both intertwine with one another and the stories will share the same message, while being full of action and adventure. It’s the message that Peter himself extols, that of acceptance and tolerance and power in individuality. That is as much a key to the tales we want told as the over the top settings, the wild escapades, and the colorful characters that we are sure will abound in these fantastic adventures.”
“This also,” continues Hancock, “is an opportunity to further embrace an aspect of fandom that Pro Se is already heavily involved with- The Convention circuit and all who make it successful. The Peter Pixie series, as well as others we’ll be announcing soon, reach right into the convention arena and introduce fans who may not have any idea what Genre Fiction or New Pulp is to what we do as a company using a character they recognize and relate to.”
The Adventures of Peter Pixie will follow the titular character on his journey from general fan and all around regular guy to being a super hero, a time traveler, and even the keeper of the most prestigious duty in the universe-being an MC (Manager of Continuity). Pro Se Productions is currently seeking proposals for 30,000 word digest novels, 60,000 word full length novels, and 8-10,000 word short stories to be featured in an anthology within the series. The Adventures of Peter Pixie is aimed at a general audience and more adult tales will be possible in this series.
Peter Pixie: Mayor of the Multiverse is a YoungPulp! series that focuses on Pixie being elected as the Mayor of all the multiple timelines, universes, and dimensions that exist. It is aimed at an audience of 12-16, though the appeal may go beyond those limits, and will feature action and adventure blended in with humor. Pro Se Productions is currently seeking proposals for 30,000 word digest novels, 60,000 word full length novels, and 8-10,000 word short stories to be featured in an anthology within the series.
