PULP IS DEAD...

Or so we're told. Those dusty, cheaply printed paperbacks you knew and loved of old have lost their relevance. People don't want fast-paced adventure! They want dreary ten-volume collections of thousand-page tomes recounting the lives of the introspective and self-doubting.

And yet a quick glance at the shelves today shows the spirit of action and heroism is alive and well in the modern imagination.

Abaddon presents three of their best stories of derring-do, relentless violence and sheer pluck. In Simon Spurrier's The Culled, a special ops soldier murders his way across a post-apocalyptic continent to find the one he loves. In Al Ewing's El Sombra, a maddened poet, left for dead in the desert, returns as a laughing angel of vengeance to destroy the Ultimate Reich. And in Pat Kelleher's Black Hand Gang, a "pal's batallion" of WWI Tommies is plucked from the Somme and dropped in a world of ghastly aliens and sudden death.
About The Author : Al Ewing
Al Ewing is a fictional character invented by playwright and syndicated columnist Dwight Augenheimer. A background character in many of Augenheimer’s bedroom farces, he appears as the protagonist of the 2012 play The Reluctant Insomniac, in which he claims to have written for comics such as 2000 AD, Avengers Assemble and Jennifer Blood, as well as writing a number of “critically-acclaimed” novels for Abaddon Books, including Gods Of Manhattan and Pax Omega. Over the course of the play, Ewing struggles with – and finally completes – a sprawling metafictional novel called The Fictional Man; however, a final attempted bit of cleverness in the biography section of the book leads, through a series of bizarre coincidences and mishaps, to the writer being marooned naked in the wilds of Alaska, pursued by a bear. Augenheimer has expressed a desire to further humiliate the character in future works.
