The Pulp Mindset with Barry Reese

lg01_lazarus_solo_with_text_smallWhat’s the difference between writing a pulp story and writing any other story? What is that somewhat ambiguous “pulp mindset”? To answer that question, this week, Perry Constantine invites one of the top writers in New Pulp, a man who does so much work that he has an entire imprint dedicated just to his characters—the award-winning creator of such classic New Pulp characters as the Rook and Lazarus Gray, Barry Reese! Together, they’ll discuss what the pulp mindset is, why both Barry and Perry have difficulty writing action scenes, and you may be surprised when you hear what they have to say about Lester Dent!

One thought on “The Pulp Mindset with Barry Reese

  1. Great episode. Can’t believe it’s taken me so long to go back and listen to it. Barry is an amazing author. It’s crazy that a lot of the work he mentions as being written back in 2013 still isn’t out as 2015 fast approaches!!
