from the official press release . . . . . . One of the most intriguing genres in Classic Pulp Fiction focused on Aviation, the machines that conquered the skies and the people who flew them.

ALTERNATIVE AIR ADVENTURES is now available in print and digital formats “People are fascinated by flying,” says Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “always have been. ALTERNATIVE AIR ADVENTURES continues that fascination by changing the status quo somewhat, something that New Pulp does a lot these days. Imagine that planes and typical helicopters and the like simply never developed. They never happened. How, then, would man have ever left the ground?

Combine that with the absolutely gorgeous cover by Michael Hegedus and this is a must have read!” FLIGHT! An ability that has always fascinated mankind and for centuries, a mystery that eluded those who sought it most! But, what if the discovery of such things as the airplane or helicopter had never occurred? What if the path to man gaining his own wings went other directions? Those worlds are imagined and come to life in Pro Se Productions’ ALTERNATIVE AIR ADVENTURES! Join authors Kevin Findley, Davide Mana, and Gene Moyers as they fly the wild and wonderful, sometimes unfriendly skies in machines from their minds.

This month, the theme was Super-Heroes and employees (and sometimes customers) at several establishments went along with the theme and dressed appropriately. (We had our Batman tee shirt underneath our sweater but spared the innocent, only flashing it to friends.) It was the perfect theme for the recently opened MAROON HORNET COMICS shop at 45 South Third Street in Oxford. Owner Randy Grace employed the mercenary-for-money Deadpool as a store greeter, and local writer Greg Cox was in attendance, signing his new book.
