BABY SHARK SERIES, SHOWDOWN AT CHIGGER FLATS

ROBERT FATE

KINDLE EDITION $3.99

May 1960 – After ten years behind bars, the bloodthirsty murderer Walter Fairchild breaks out of a Texas prison with revenge on his mind, and the cantankerous, Fort Worth private eye Otis Millett is at the top of his list. After several failed attempts to kill Otis, the Fairchild clan finally finds success in kidnapping him.

This doesn’t sit well with Otis’ partner, Kristin Van Dijk aka Baby Shark, who forms a fragile bond with law enforcement agencies across Texas to rescue him before he is tortured and killed. Kristin is a lethal handful at the best of times, but threatening Otis puts her in a particularly dangerous frame of mind. Get ready for some quintessential Baby Shark action-adventure as Kristin, Henry Chin, and a U.S. Marshall with pale green eyes go hunting for trouble in the oilfields of West Texas.

BOXING PULPS ON THE COMEBACK TRAIL!

BOXING PULPS ON THE COMEBACK TRAIL!

HANK BROWN (AUTHOR OF THE UPSOMING FIGHT CARD: TOMATO CAN COMEBACK) INTERVIEWS ME IN HIS LATEST DOUBLE-OUGHT PULP COLUMN OVER AT THE NEW PULP WEBSITE . . .

New Pulp is not just catching on; it's catching fire. There is more exposure to the classic pulps every day, and more authors publishing new pulpesque material. This year I caught wind of a new series resurrecting a long-forgotten pulp genre, and just had to check it out.

The series is called Fight Card. It is a throwback to the boxing pulps of yesteryear, brainstormed by Paul Bishop and Mel Odom. All the novellas in this series are set in the 1950s, which just seems to fit perfect for stories with a hardboiled noir edge. Odom, Bishop, and others are using the "Jack Tunney" house name to write under, in true pulp-writer style.
