A FISTFUL OF FISTICUFFS

If you like exciting, action-packed stories like the old fight pulp tales from the 1930s and 1940s, then you are in luck because there definitely seems to be a resurgence of that type of fiction readily available these days. Some terrific stuff is already out there and more is on the way.

Here are two recent examples well worth checking out:



Just released by Borgo Press (a division of Wildside Press), these 15 stories brought together by editor Gary Lovisi offer a variety of takes on the fight game—each filled with passion, emotion, and the gritty challenge of fist-to-fist competition.
Some character named Dundee even has a spot on the card.



Fight Fictioneers is an exciting new e-Zine from the talented duo of Paul Bishop and Mel Odom—two authors (and fans) who are at the forefront of all this renewed interest in fight fiction. Their "Fight Card" series of pulp-style eBooks are off to a hugely popular start with titles like FELONY FISTS, THE CUTMAN, and SPLIT DECISION currently available—and more on the way. Now, as a companion piece to the Fight Card novels, they will also be putting out further issues of Fight Fictioneers.
For a free copy of issue #1, all you have to do is send a request to fightcardseries@gmail.com
Oh, and that same Dundee character who has a story (it's called "Quick Hands", by the way) in BATTLING BOXER STORIES? Before long, he also will be having a novel out under the Fight Card banner …. Keep an eye out (and your guard up) for COUNTERPUNCH, coming soon!

In the meantime, as always …
