In Pro Se Productions' BLACK FEDORA anthology, author Phillip Drayer Duncan introduced the worst enemy a super hero could have- The Warden. This enigmatic, evil collector of do-gooders proved so popular with readers of his debut tale that he simply demanded his own novel. Duncan’s latest full length novel, TALES OF THE WARDEN: HOPE CITY, is now available in print and digital formats from Pro Se Productions.
“There aren’t many times,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “that writers come up with something that has such an edge, such a twist within it, that it stands out as truly original. Phillip Drayer Duncan’s The Warden is a character that does just that. Not the first villain to be able to command the lead in a story or novel, The Warden has so many facets to him that it’s simply hard to not enjoy every vile deed and devious thought he might have. TALES OF THE WARDEN: HOPE CITY puts not only the lead character, but this entire world, a place where a being such as The Warden can even exist, under a microscope and delivers a tale analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of good and evil without parallel.”
There are villains. And there are heroes. And then there is The Warden. An enigma feared by all who stand for justice. He strikes where least expected, capturing heroes society depends on. Some say he collects them for display in his own private prison. Others doubt his existence. Yet all who bravely stand against the darkness have felt a tremor of fear at the utterance of his name.
Now, one of the Warden’s favorite hunting grounds has become dry. A new criminal mastermind has taken up residence in Hope City, with an army of villains at his disposal. A hero named Lament stands against them, but he’s short on allies, outgunned, and has nothing except skill to rely on. The helpless Lament is of little interest to the Warden, but this shortage of heroes is a minor irritation he won’t allow. Just once, can the Warden find it in himself to play on the side of the angels?
