PulpStudies is an imprint focused on bringing titles to readers that either reveal wonderful facts and figures to aspiring writers and hungry fans or look and delve into the stories that make up what is New Pulp and Genre fiction today.
Fiction is filled with fantastic crimefighters, people who put on the badge and solve every mystery and put every criminal where they belong. But those same sort of people have always existed beyond the page. Real life lawmen who went above and beyond in the pursuit of justice and the law. Jim Doherty, “Just The Facts” Columnist for Mystery Readers Journal and a third generation policeman, tells the stories of law enforcement legends in ‘Just The Facts’. Bill Tilghman, legendary Oklahoma lawman and town-tamer from the Territorial era to the Roaring Twenties. Richard Crafts, an airline pilot who killed his stewardess wife and fed her frozen body into a rented woodchipper. Hawaiian Policeman Chang Apana, the real Chinese-American detective who inspired Earl Derr Biggers to create Charlie Chan. Their stories and many more are brought to life in this new edition of JUST THE FACTS: TRUE TALES OF COPS AND CRIMINALS, featuring articles new to the collection as well as three exclusive to this edition. JUST THE FACTS: TRUE TALES OF COPS AND CRIMINALS from Pro Se Productions. “This is a well researched, addictive collection of true case studies, some sensational, others little known, all intensely interesting. And one, ‘The Mad Doctor and The Untouchable,’ will no doubt become a terrific movie.” —Joseph Wambaugh “With his stories of crime and crime-fighters in Chicago and nearby, Jim Doherty told me things about old-time Chicago that I never knew, even though I’ve lived here thirty years. Well-written, well-researched and fascinating!”
