Thanks to Chris Rhatigan AND Elizabeth A. White for spectacular reviews of Pulp Modern #1. They both single out my story “Legacy of Brutality” starring Denny the Dent:
Chris at Death by Killing had this to say:
Thomas Pluck’s “Legacy of Brutality” is as devastating as the title would make it out to be. Denny is a character you can’t help but admire — through experience he’s learned that you have to defend those you love. Others may dismiss him as just a mound of muscle, but it doesn’t long for the reader to figure out he’s much more than that.
Elizabeth A. White is one of the best-known crime fiction book reviewers and she also loved Pulp Modern. She had this to say about Denny’s tale:
A few standouts…
“Legacy of Brutality” by Thomas Pluck features man-mountain Denny, previously seen in the short “Rain Dog”(Crimespree Magazine, Issue #43). Having come up hard –If there was a God, I’d beat his ass for making this hateful world. – Denny learned early it’s better to listen than talk, and that you have to set things right yourself if you want justice in this life. Brutally good stuff.
Pulp Modern has many great stories and it’s an honor to be chosen from them for singling out. Thanks, Chris and Elizabeth!
