"A treat in pulp form. Since I started reading on a daily bases in April of 2020, I'm always looking for something fun and different. Recently I've gone from novels to short stories just to mix things up. I already had books by Will Murray which was my way into this collection. My best recommendation for it would be... remember the first time you watched 'The Third Man' with Orson Wells and Joseph Cotton? A black and white film actually set in the bombed out city of Vienna. Now, take a moment to walk away from the entrance to the sewers and pay attention to some of the other folks roaming those same streets. Those are the stories being told here by some very talented writers. Edited by Jim Beard and John C. Bruening, this is the book that keeps you up reading long after you should have gone to sleep. Great Stuff. Top Notch."Many thanks for the kind words. They are appreciated.

The end of World War II brought with it a renewed chance for peace, hope, and prosperity to the strife-ridden nations across the globe, but for some people treachery, intrigue, and conflict was in their blood…whether they liked it or not.
You’re enlisted to join forces with six stalwart pulp writers as they march into occupied territory in post-war Germany, Italy, and Japan. The Axis Powers have been vanquished, though in some camps the news either falls on deaf ears, or is a signal to work even harder to bring about the downfall of freedom-loving people everywhere.
OCCUPIED PULP offers all the two-fisted, slam-bang action and adventure that are hallmarks of the pulp tradition. Along the way, you’ll encounter fascinating heroes and villains who wage a mighty struggle to either protect the fragile peace or set the wheels of conflict and destruction back in motion.
Stay vigilant! Some enemies have not yet laid down their arms!

Having assisted in the Vistula–Oder Offensive and made part of the major advance into German-held territory where the Red Army captured Kraków, Warsaw, and Poznań, the Night Witches, a squadron of all-female pilots, were scheduled to stand down and be disbanded. Ace pilot Yelena Olva disobeys orders for a mission of revenge against the German officer who had captured and tortured her months earlier. After overhearing a communique that the German officer is making overtures of collaborating with Allied Forces to bargain for his freedom, Yelena cannot let this monster live. Though she knows it means imprisonment at best and death at worst, she sets out to kill one last enemy before he makes his final escape.
