After surviving college and a decade of trying to fit in the world of traditional wisdom, Lance Stahlberg wandered the fringes of the comic book industry. First as an indie self-publisher, than as a distributor for a few years.
He has since joined the New Pulp movement with novellas in the crime, spy thriller, superhero, and supernatural genres.
He was Nominated for 2014 New Pulp Awards: Best New Writer.
The Jazz Age is over and the Great Depression and Dust Bowl are ravaging across the United States. People need someone to blame.
Luckily for a population who needs a scapegoat, the next wave of human evolution has begun, and it couldn’t have chosen a worse time to be born. Men and women with amazing powers now fly across the sky, turn their skin into gold, and block bullets with their bare hands.
Some take to crime.
Some hide their powers for their own safety.
Some seek the Underground Railroad for safe haven and a new life in Mexico.
Some try to fight the good fight and turn the tide of public opinion as heroes.
All of them are in the wrong place at the wrong time in a wounded, terrified, and violent country.
In this collection from Pro Se Productions, several of the top writers in New Pulp Fiction spin history ’round like a top to create an alternate reality both comfortably familiar and strangely new for readers of action, adventure, and crime stories.
