ACTION: Pulse Pounding Tales, Vol. 1 !!!
Remember the great paperback pulp heroes of the '70s? I sure do. I loved every one of Don Pendleton's Executioner books, and never got enough of Sapir & Murphy's Remo Williams, The Destroyer. And those guys were just the leaders of the pack. It was a great time for action-adventure fiction.
So when Matt Hilton called for a revival of that hallowed tradition, my blood started pumping, and next thing I knew I was writing a pirate adventure called "The Judgment of Jean Lafitte." And I wasn't the only one so affected. Dozens of other folks answered the call, and the result is this brand spanking new eBook anthology.
ACTION: Pulse Pounding Tales Vol. 1 is a whopper of a collection, packed with 37 short stories featuring, in Matt's words, "secret agents, vigilantes (both just and insane), cops, villains, soldiers, veterans, gangsters, swordsmen, privateers, Ninja and even a crypto-zoological beast you might recognise."
I just got this sucker loaded onto my Kindle, and I'm raring to get started. And you can too, because it's now available from Amazon (HERE) and Amazon UK (HERE).
