Press Release:

Pulpfest 2013Beginning Friday, July 26th, at 1 PM, PulpFest begins its annual salute to the “New Fictioneers,” the authors writing the new pulp fiction.

In addition to writing the Fu Manchu novels for Black Coat Press, Bill pens a weekly pulp fiction column for The Black Gate and was formerly a regular contributor to The Cimmerian. His articles have been published in Blood and Thunder, Windy City Pulp Stories and The Pulpster, among others, while his short fiction has appeared in The Ruby Files (Airship 27), Gaslight Grotesque (EDGE Publishing), and Tales of the Shadowmen: Grand Guignol (Black Coat Press). He has contributed essays to Serial Squadron’s remastered Drums of Fu Manchu DVD and to the Sax Rohmer collection, The Voice of Kali (Black Dog Books). He is a past nominee of a Pulp Factory Award for Best Pulp Novel and a Rondo Award for Best Genre Article in a Periodical. Most recently, he received three nominations for the 2012 Pulp Ark Awards including Best Pulp Novel and Best Short Story.

Meet “the yellow peril incarnate in one man” as William Patrick Maynard gets PulpFest’s annual New Fictioneer readings off to a tremendous start.

PulpFest’s “New Fictioneer” programming continues on Friday, July 26th at 2 PM in the Hyatt Regency’s Fairfield Room. Mark Halegua will be reading “Red Badge Attacks,” a story about a mysterious vigilante that was co-written by Andrew Salmon. He’ll also offer “The Night Before Christmas,” featuring St. Nick as a 1930s-style crimefighter.

Mark is a computer consultant and, on occasion, a “new pulp” writer. He is also one of the founding members of the Gotham Pulp Collectors Club, a group that meets in New York City on the second Saturday of each month to talk about pulps.
