Lone Justice by Bobby Nash
Moonstone Books has released a new anthology called The Avenger: Roaring Heart of The Crucible at their website. The book does not yet show available at on-line retailers as yet, but should be available there shortly.

I have a story in this volume called “Lone Justice.”

More details as soon as I have them.


Here’s a copy of the press release from when the book was available for preorder.

The greatest crime-fighter of the 40′s returns in a third thrilling collection of original, action-packed tales of adventure, intrigue, and revenge. Life was bliss for millionaire adventurer Richard Henry Benson until that fateful day crime and greed took away his wife and young daughter… and turned him into something more than human. Driven by loss, compelled by grief, he becomes a chilled impersonal force of justice, more machine than man, dedicated to the destruction of evildoers everywhere. A figure of ice and steel, more pitiless than both, Benson has been forged into an avatar of vengeance, possessed of superhuman genius supernormal power. His frozen face and pale eyes, like a polar dawn, only hint at the terrible force the underworld heedlessly invoked upon itself the day they created… The Avenger!

The Cover
There was a small article on my 2013 Pulp Ark Award win in the local Life magazine where I live. That's pretty cool. I didn’t actually win the awards for writing graphic novels, but the rest of the story is pretty accurate.


Monday, April 29, 2013


I just returned from a long weekend trip to the wilds of Arkansas for the 2013 Pulp ark Convention. Spearheaded by Tommy Hancock and Pro Se Productions, this was Pulp Ark's third year. I was also at the first show, but missed the second.

Originally, I thought I wasn't going to be able to attend this year either, but an 11th hour decision had me zooming up the interstate Friday evening. As a result, I was only there a short time, arriving Saturday afternoon and leaving Sunday morning, but I packed a lot of good times in that short window.

I should state up front that I am notoriously bad for remembering names. Couple that with a lack of much sleep and it gets even worse, so if I forget anyone, please understand there is no slight intended, my brain just hasn't fired the right neurons for me to recall names yet. :) Reminders are always helpful.
Short Story vs. Novel panel

First off, it's always great seeing Tommy Hancock, one of New Pulp's most strident cheerleaders. Together with Bumper Fullers, Tommy puts on a heckuva show. Here's a few of the folks I had a great time chatting with over the weekend. Again, if I forget anyone, please forgive me. Paul Bishop (for whom I am currently working on a Fight Card novel), Martin Powell, Dr. Art Sippo (who also interviewed me for a Pulp Ark segment on The Book Cave podcast), Keith (KEZ) Wilson, David White, Gary Phillips, Carlin Stuart, Allan Gilbreath, Kimberly Richardson, Lance Stahlberg, Joseph Lamere, Terry Alexander, Morgan Minor, Tracy Morris, M. Keaton, Selina Rosen, and so many more.

You can see the schedule of panels here. I was a last minute addition and sat in on some panels Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

I was honored to accept the Pulp Ark Award for Best New Pulp Character: Rick Ruby, which was co-created by myself and Sean Taylor. I also accepted the award for Best Anthology/Collection for Green Hornet Still at Large on Moonstone's behalf. Finally, I accepted the Pulp Ark Award for Best Author, which I was completely surprised to be nominated for, much less win.

Tommy Hancock, Bobby Nash, & awards
Here are some photos from the event.  I know there are some other photos taken of the Pulp Ark Awards ceremony so I will post those when they become available.

Thanks again to Tommy Hancock for inviting me to the convention. I had a blast and look forward to returning to Pulp Ark again.
