Based in Batesville, Arkansas, Pro Se Productions has become a leader on the cutting edge of New Pulp Fiction in a very short time.

Pulp Fiction, known by many names and identified as being action/adventure, fast paced, hero versus villain, over the top characters and tight, yet extravagant plots, is experiencing a resurgence like never before. And Pro Se Press, publishing New Pulp since August, 2011, is a major part of the revival, one of the reasons that New Pulp is growing by leaps and bounds!

Pro Se is the place to find Super Heroes, Explorers, Fairies, Werewolves, Men's Men, and Femme Fatales.  Specializing primarily in prose books, anthologies, and magazines, Pro Se has made a commitment to 'Put the Monthly Back into Pulp' and continues to do that successfully, producing at least one New Pulp work every month!

I. A. Watson is probably a warning to others. He won an award at the Ilkley Literature Festival at thirteen. His first play was staged when he was sixteen. Then he discovered girls. It took him a quarter of a century after that to get round to publishing his first novel, ROBIN HOOD: KING OF SHERWOOD. He’s done more since, including ROBIN HOOD: ARROW OF JUSTICE, ROBIN HOOD: FREEDOM’S OUTLAW, BLACKTHORN: DYNASTY OF MARS, and BLACKTHORN: SPIRES OF MARS, but he’s starting to realise it won’t make him sixteen again.

Watson lives in Yorkshire, England, from which he sends out lengthy diatribes on obscure historical trivia and contributes to a lot of anthologies, including THE NEW ADVENTURES OF RICHARD KNIGHT, BLOOD-PRICE OF THE MISSIONARY’S GOLD – THE NEW ADVENTURES OF ARMLESS O’NEIL, GIDEON CAIN, DEMON HUNTER, SINBAD, THE NEW VOYAGES, MONSTER EARTH, BLACKTHORN: THUNDER ON MARS, THE SPIDER: EXTREME PREJUDICE, and six volumes of SHERLOCK HOLMES: CONSULTING DETECTIVE. If you really want the full list and some free stuff it’s on his website at http://www.chillwater.org.uk/writing/iawatsonhome.htm .

Watson has won awards, including Best Pulp Short story, and award nominations including three for Best Pulp Novel, but his most treasured review was the lady who described his latest novel as “a cheap slutty adventure book”.

The reluctant hero finds himself trapped with travelers, refugee orphans, deserter soldiers, a beautiful hunted sorceress, and one mad viking, amidst civil war, religious zealots, brutal reavers, and a growing zombie army - guarding a secret that could bring the last vestiges of civilization crashing down in flames.

In Byzantium Book One: Dead Men’s Road, a beautiful woman tasked with delivering a sealed package to the Invisible College in Byzantium is pursued by merciless bandits, relentless undead, and a charming scoundrel who has nothing to lose.


Award Winning Author I. A. Watson, one of the most prolific voices in New Pulp, returns readers to a world of history of fantasy, one marred with magic, monsters, and mystery in the second chapter his exclusive original Pro Se Single Shot Signatures Series Byzantium.

In a world where Christianity never arose to sweep away the old magics, where sorcerer-guilds and necromancer-kings rule amidst the Roman ruins, Kirkgrim the Wanderer joins a caravan train across war-torn wasteland to the world's most corrupt city. The reluctant hero finds himself trapped with travelers, refugee orphans, deserter soldiers, a beautiful hunted sorceress, and one mad viking, amidst civil war, religious zealots, brutal reavers, and a growing zombie army - guarding a secret that could bring the last vestiges of civilization crashing down in flames.

In Byzantium Book Two:Stone and Fire, the caravan encounters death and destruction at the hands of bandits and the undead, desperate and possibly traitorous Imperial soldiers, a decimated bridge, and a battle between two elemental giants that very well could spell the end of the caravan, even with the holy Kirkgrim the Wanderer as its protector.

Prepare to be amazed and astonished as the first occult detective of Pulp Fiction walks once more from the halls of the Urania Building and joins the fight against evil! Pulp Obscura, an imprint of Pro Se Productions, in conjunction with Altus Press proudly presents 'The New Adventures of Semi Dual'!

Created by J. U. Giesy and J. B. Smith, Semi Dual was considered Pulp's first occult detective. Semi Dual, also known as Prince Abdul Omar of Persia, was an astrologer, a mystic, a telepath, and a psychologist. Semi Dual's name was based, in part, on his methods of investigation: "by dual solutions-- one material for material minds-- the other occult, for those who cared to sense a deeper something back of the philosophic lessons interwoven in the narrative."

Assisted by his allies at Glace and Bryce, Private Investigators, Semi Dual peels away the layers of mystery to shine light on the darkness!

From out of the past comes new tales of The Master Mystic! The New Adventures of Semi Dual by I. A. Watson, Kevin Noel Olson, and James Palmer! Available from Pulp Obscura and Pro Se Productions!


WHEN THE SHADOW SEES THE SUN is the realization of a concept of a brilliant creative mind that recognized certain things in himself, dark things. Things he thought he might not overcome. He conceived this idea, partly in jest, but more in earnest desire. A book focused on creative souls who experience depression and struggle with horrors that they exorcise by putting them to paper, but just can’t always let go of that way. He wanted there to be a book out there for creatives (and others who might benefit) by creatives to address the struggles so many endure and to offer ways to cope, to deal, and to move on. To overcome. Logan L. Masterson lost his battle with what plagued him on March 29, 2016. And this book, his idea, is now a reality, to help bring to light the issues creative souls do endure, many similar to anyone else, some unique to our own little family. All proceeds from this book will go to a variety of charities, local as well as state and national, to promote suicide intervention and prevention as well as to assist with working through and surviving depression, with a focus being on those who are artists, writers, performers, etc. affected by this. In these pages, authors John G. Hartness, Tim Byrd, Ernest Russell, Phillip Drayer Duncan, Mark Bousquet, Thomas R. Skidmore, Nikki Nelson-Hicks, Andrea Judy, Scott Hancock, Joe Hilliard, Herika R.
