FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Known for breathing new life into rare, nearly forgotten classic Pulp Characters, Pro Se Productions announceD the licensing one of the most bizarre detective characters from classic Pulp Fiction last year.
Originally appearing in Popular Publication’s Dime Detective Magazine, D. L. Champion’s Inspector Allhoff is remembered by pulp fans for his bitterness, strange ways of solving cases, and the compelling psychological warfare within the stories. By a licensing arrangement with Steeger Properties, LLC, Pro Se Productions has a call remaining open for three short stories in a six story collection featuring Allhoff
As created by Champion, Inspector Allhoff was the star of the New York Police Department in every way, until a gangland attack left him broken, physically, emotionally, and perhaps mentally. Now, faced with cases too difficult for anyone else to solve, the powers-that-be in the Department set Ahlloff up in a run down tenement building near police headquarters and provide him with two assistants. One of them is a long time officer who bears a near hatred for the inspector, but remains loyal to the assignment to protect his job and his retirement. The other is the young rookie responsible for Allhoff’s physical condition and requested by the inspector himself for his team, perhaps as a form of punishment for the new officer. Together, these three work the cases either too difficult or simply too strange for the traditional New York Police department to handle and solve.
“I'm a bit surprised,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “that we still have openings in this collection, to a degree. Of course, we are looking only for the best of the best to go into this and have turned away several proposals that just didn't meet the bar we'd set. With the publication of DEAD CAT BOUNCE, the first full length actual Allhoff novel ever published, written by E. W. Farnsworth, that bar's even higher. Three more stories will give Allhoff fans new and old six more stories to enjoy!”
Pro Se is seeking proposals for 10,000 word short stories to be collected into an Inspector Allhoff anthology. This call requires a 1-3 paragraph proposal and, if the writer submitting a proposal has never written for Pro Se, a 5 page writing sample. The pay for this project will be on a royalty basis and will be addressed with each accepted writer. It must also be noted there will be a strict 90 day deadline on stories being completed once proposals are accepted for the anthology and a six month deadline for the novel to be completed upon acceptance. Due to licensing terms, these will not be extended or negotiable deadlines.
This call will close on July 15, 2017 or when all available slots for proposals are filled, whichever occurs first. All proposals must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
For writers interested in submitting a proposal, Altus Press has published a first volume of reprints of the original Allhoff tales, available in print and for the Kindle at http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Case…/…/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0….
