CLASSIC PULP AUTHOR RIDES AGAIN FROM AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR! ‘THE COWBOY AND THE CONQUEROR: A BOB HOWARD ADVENTURE’ DEBUTS!

The year is 1938, a timeline similar yet different from our own. Where one of the greatest pulp writers in history lived instead of dying and left Texas to travel and troubleshoot his way around the world. From author Teel James Glenn comes another Bob Howard Adventure.

A German pulp writer, another with a different destiny in this version of history, meets Texas pulp writer Bob Howard on a boat trip up the Nile. As the two become fast friends, the riverboat is boarded by desert bandits who assault the crew and kidnap a group of schoolgirls and their teacher. These two men from different worlds, united by their love for adventure and justice, follow the kidnapped children to the ancient ruins of the raiders’ headquarters and learn that the girls are meant to be human sacrifices to an ancient, hideous deity!

Led back to England in pursuit of a horrific cult, Howard and his new companion face an eldritch horror from beyond time and space—commanded by a fascist politician who threatens the very stability of reality and the fates of all mankind.

THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF NED LAND

In Jules Verne’s classic ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea’, a character debuted that brimmed with life and vitality. He deserved more stories to be told about him. Pro Se Productions has proudly taken up the challenge with its latest anthology collection. THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF NED LAND is now available in print and digital formats.

 Ned Land was a man of strength, both physically and emotionally. He was not educated, but he was intelligent in ways necessary for a man of the world. He was skilled in the ways of a sailor and known as ‘The Prince of Harpooners’. While Captain Nemo continued on into other stories, this singular man of the sea, Nemo’s opposite in so many ways, did not.

 Until now.

THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF NED LAND sets sail with five new stories featuring Verne’s forgotten hero. Never venturing far from the water, Ned reaches for the stars in five exciting and thrilling tales. Sail, along with the storytelling sailor into the action tales, only a hero such as he deserves!

 THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF NED LAND features a stunning cover by Antonino lo Iacono and print formatting by lo Iacono and Marzia Marina. It is available in print for $9/99 via Amazon.

Add to the mix an anti-technology cult whose leader may be possessed by a demon, a dark-sister from a sect of assassin nuns, an attempt to destroy EI and the Zenith project in a hostile takeover of Delany Corp and the help or perhaps hindrance of a pompous native detective-can Anna and Zenni rescue the hostages and survive unscathed?
