The Rapist by Les Edgerton

New Pulp Press Pub date: March 20, 2013 Every once in a while a book will land in my lap and I know I’m about to get my ass kicked. It might me the title or maybe the cover but I know a beating is coming down the pike. The Rapist was one of those books. From the striking cover image to the title itself, I knew I was about to get punched and kicked by a skilled opponent. The rapist is the story of Truman Ferris Pinter. Truman has been convicted of a rape and murder. He is on death row, writing his last words, as the hours count down before his execution. Truman is highly intelligent, he went to Princeton. He comes from a good background and...

ALMOST GONE by Stan Richards

New Pulp Press Pub date: April 1st, 2009 Sometimes you pick up a book and it starts slow. You wonder if it’s worth finishing. You put it down for a minute. You think about it. You remember that even though it was starting slow, you knew something was there. So you pick it back up and you roll through. Before you know it the story takes off and you thank Christ you pushed on. This is the story of Boulder Colorado police officer Chuck Johnson. Late on a rainy night while driving home, Johnson loses control of his car and crashes into a truck. Johnson survives but with serious brain damage. At first the damage doesn’t seem all that bad, all...

THE DISASSEMBLED MAN by Nate Flexer Feb15

THE DISASSEMBLED MAN by Nate Flexer

New Pulp Press Pub date: April 4th, 2009 Today I read The Disassembled Man by Nate Flexer and I feel like I ate an acid-shroom combo while running a high fever. Yes, this book is that fucked up and twisted and I absolutely loved it. It left me feeling dirty. And apparently this Flexer cat is a high school teacher. I hope he teaches English but that’s beside the point. I have a vision of a man in a sweltering hot classroom listening to some teenage moron prattle on about some mundane shit while scratching out notes for this book. I would love to sit down with Flexer and have a conversation because the book fucked with me that much. The story...

IN NINE KINDS OF PAIN by Leonard Fritz

New Pulp Press Pub date: October 20th, 2011 It’s not often I read a book and I find myself saying over and over again this is so fucking cool, this guy needs to write another book, I am luck to even be reading this. In Nine Kinds Of Pain by Leonard Fritz is that book right now for me. This is the story of a group of Detroit’s most fucked up citizens over the course of one week. You have the beat up prostitute, the suicidal cop, the crooked cops, and the delusional/alcoholic priest among others. Baby the Hooker gets caught up in some shit because of her boyfriend, which brings her into the path of the others. Detroit itself becomes a...

HELL ON CHURCH STREET by Jake Hinkson

Publisher: New Pulp Press Pub date: Dec 20th, 2011 Sometimes you start reading a book, and it’s like driving on a road when all of a sudden the book makes a sharp right turn on a dime and then every so often there’s another sharp right turn or maybe even a sharp left. Your head is whipping around wondering what the fuck just happened. Jake Hinkson’s Hell on Church Street did just that to me. This is the story of Geoffrey Webb, a natural born con man who uses religion as his main weapon. Now when I say con man I mean it like he knows what people want to hear even if he doesn’t believe in it himself. He uses his words to get him what he...
