Pulp Winds Pulse Pounding Adventures in Fiction and Verse by Wm. Michael Mott Introductions by Brad Steiger, Gerald W. Page and Walter Bosley - PULP WINDS, the long-awaited collection of short fiction, verse, and Forteana by Wm. Michael Mott, has been unleashed for mass consumption! With introductions by Walter Bosley, Brad Steiger, and Gerald W. Page, these tales will take you from the antediluvian world to lost cities beneath the earth, onward to other planets around distant stars, and even to the Dark Ages, the Old West and the High Seas. New twists on mythos and madness are inter-meshed and presented in these yarns of terror and adventure! Profusely illustrated, and reminiscent of pulp fiction and verse of a bygone era, PULP WINDS is a literary adventure of a type scarcely seen today! These literary gems are not in the modern vein of politically correct, emasculated tales of slow pace and boring introspection so common today, but are fast-paced, pulse-pounding accounts of action, horror, love, hate and gore! Presented in a large-format for easier reading and for viewing of the artwork, the design is reminiscent of the pulp magazines of an earlier, bygone era. Those of you familiar with Mott's non-fiction Fortean research will find familiar themes from the realms of the unknown interwoven into, through, and beneath these stories, like the currents of a deep black subterranean river of mystery, glimpsed and occasionally revealed in all its weirdness and terror, before plunging beneath the surface again. Also included is an article on Fortean matters along the lines of the research presented in Caverns, Cauldrons, and Concealed Creatures, Mott's definitive non-fiction opus on high strangeness, hidden beings, and real-life mysteries. Some of the stories and poems in Pulp Winds have also appeared in Lost Continent Library Magazine, Planetary Stories, and elsewhere, but have never been gathered together into a single collection before now. If the reader finds occasional hints of the Apocrypha, the Pseudepigrapha, the Book of Skelos, the Eltdown Shards, the Necronomicon, and yes, even the mad musings of the Shaver Mystery in these tales... It is no mere happenstance! BLOOD AND THUNDER has returned to the literary realm. PULP WINDS will satisfy your cravings for fast-paced, haunting adventures across time and space!

Pulp fantasy fiction sword sorcery style interspersed with some good and dark poems
15 November 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Pulp fantasy fiction sword sorcery style interspersed with some good and dark poems. Moody stuff. A collection with common threads relating to themes this author has devolped and become expert in. The stories are short, fast and exiting as pulp should be.

A BRAND NEW NAME IN PULP FICTION!!!
14 March 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Have to say, I really enjoyed this book by William Michael Mott. If you like pulp fiction (the literary genre - not the movie), then this will suit you to a tee. It's written in the tradition of Robert E. Howard and Edgar Rice Burroughs, among others. I grew up reading Conan and Tarzan, and these stories are like a stroll down familiar jungle paths, or Hyperborean back alleyways filled with pick-pockets, cut-throats and assassins. The story, "Fisticuffs of the Damned" alone, is worth the price of the entire book. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Pulp Winds A Must Have

I recommend this book highly to anyone who loves pulp both old and new. Mott is a thorough researcher and writer of lore and it shows in his fiction. He has mastered the balance between emulation and fresh voice. There is more great pulp adventure to come from this guy and this book is a great start.
