HONEY WEST #6!

HONEY WEST #6!

ARRIVING IN COMIC SHOPS JUNE 13!

STORY: TRINA ROBBINS
ART: SILVESTRE SZILAGYI

Murder, Forsooth is the way Shakespeare might have put it when Honey goes undercover in a corset and pushup bra at a Medieval Faire, to find out who’s threatening to kill the May Queen.

And when those beauty queens go at it tooth and nail, battling for a prize that could lead to stardom, and when that contest might very well be fixed, woe betide the girl who wins, because her jealous rivals might make sure that it’s adios, hasta la vista, so long — at the Faire!

I'm enjoying these New Orleans-based tales by three-time Private Eye Writers of America Shamus Award nominee, and two-time Short Mystery Fiction Society Derringer Award winner Richard Helms.

The main character in this series is Pat Gallegher, a failed seminarian, retired forensic psychologist, disgraced college professor, and now a jazz cornetist in a dive bar located off Toulouse Street in New Orleans' French Quarter. 

Gallegher is also a hulking presence who sidelines as a collector for loanshark named Leduc to pay off his own sizable gambling debt. To balance the shaky scales of his own brittle karma, he also performs 'favors' for friends, and friends of friends.

PULP NOW: TALES OF THE HANGING MONKEY!

PULP NOW: TALES OF THE HANGING MONKEY!

TALES OF THE SOUTH SEAS . . . AVAILABLE JUNE 8TH . . .

In the middle of the South Seas is the island of Motugra, so named by the natives. It has the only deep water port in this island chain. On Motugra you’ll find The Hanging Monkey, an inn and bar owned and operated by Irish ex-patriot Corky O’Brien. Here gather some of the most colorful rogues, scalawags and pirates ever to ply the trade routes of the Pacific during the late 1930s.

Enter and meet Khuna, the bar’s bouncer and former headhunter. Miko, the slim and beautiful Chinese girl with the mysterious past. One eyed Captain Nick Fortune, owner of the schooner Fortune’s Folly and air freight pilot, Jimmy Dolan. And don’t forget ace reporter, the lovely blond Grace Thomas.

All of these characters spring from the mind of writer Bill Craig as homage to the classic pulp island stories of yesterday. Along for the ride, Craig is joined by Derrick Ferguson, Joshua Reynolds and Tommy Hancock.

Here are four fast paced, island adventures guaranteed to whisk your imagination to tropical paradises of warm breezes, swaying palm trees and crystal blue waters. Where danger can lurk behind the smile of an alluring native girl and a man’s fists are as important as his wits.

So, hitch up your gunbelt, cock your pilot’s cap and swing the door’s open . . . Welcome to The Hanging Monkey!
