About The Alchemy Press Book of Pulp Heroes, edited by Mike Chinn:
“Hard-boiled detectives, sinister vigilantes, bizarre villains â€“ the staple of the Pulp tradition; two-fisted heroes â€“ and heroines â€“ fighting for right and justice in the midnight city, foetid jungles or exotic, far-flung lands; and deranged villains for whom the world is never enough.
Here, seventeen writers dive headlong into the world of the pulp fiction, to tell us tall tales of daring do, of heroes, heroines and their villains.”
