Meet the Author

My name is Bryce Beattie, and I'm addicted to pulp. I got into it many years ago, and I just can't break free. When I was a kid, some careless adult left a tape with several episodes of "The Shadow" radio show lying around. After I listened to that, I was hooked. Pretty soon, audio just wasn't enough and I moved on to to the paperback stuff. At first it was just detective fiction, then I started reading old Conan stories and yarns about John Carter of Mars. Now I'm pretty hopeless. I tried to quit once, but soon afterward put on a lot of weight, so I started back up. Now, I'm so deep into pulp fiction that I write my own.

    A quaint little read

    I read this a while ago, but it still stands nicely in my memory. It is definitely worth a look, and all I can say is that I wanted it to be longer. Don't get me wrong, it was perfect as a short story...no rushed sequences or an abrupt ending. Give it a shot.

    A good story with good potential

    Not bad at all. Though we learn nothing of Key, his carefree manner and humor made me immediately like him and root for him. The downside: I remember when books had no spelling or grammar errors. I hope I can blame spell checkers and not the quality of American schools...
