Bold Venture Press: Benedict & Brazos #9

Benedict and Brazos #9
The Living Legend by E. Jefferson Clay

The town of Glory was anything but glorious. It was actually a town filled with fear — fear of the wild Yellow House River bunch, and an outlaw gang led by Ben Hollister, a bad man they called the Living Legend for his gun-speed.Duke Benedict and Hank Brazos had no intention of buying into Glory’s troubles.

All they wanted was a lead on Bo Rangle — the man they were hunting, who had made off with $200,000 in stolen Confederate gold. But then a good man was shot dead by the Yellow House boys. That’s when Benedict pinned on the town marshal’s badge and together he and Brazos set about restoring law and order.

With the Yellow House gang dealt with, there was still the matter of Ben Hollister, and a schemer in the shadows saw to it that he and Benedict would eventually clash.

It was a showdown Benedict would have done anything to avoid. Because he and Holliday had once been friends. Holliday was the only man faster on the draw than Benedict. The Living Legend taught him everything he knew about guns, and how to use them. Now it looked like Holliday might teach Benedict how to die!

This issue focuses on Doc Savage, with special emphasis on Steve Holland, the great artist model who portrayed Doc on paperback covers for three decades.First, Will Murray traces The Batman’s origins, demonstrating how the character was influenced by both The Shadow and Zorro. Of particular focus is the crossover stories DC Comics published in the 1970s, wherein Manhattan’s Man of Mystery and The Dark Knight actually cross paths, in two different issues of Batman.

Next, Laurie Powers (author of Daisy Bacon: Queen of the Pulps) interviews Will Murray regarding his journey from being a Doc Savage fan to becoming the author.

NASH NEWS August/September 2021

READY FOR FALL? Boy, am I ready for some cooler temps. Living in Georgia, the summers can be a bit oppressive and this year has been no exception. After spending my fifty years living here, you’d think I’d be used to it by now, but no. I am not a fan of the heat.It’s been a busy time here at Nash Central. Projects are moving along nicely and I’ve even appeared at a couple of local conventions, which was nice. Sadly, I had to cancel my appearance at this year’s Dragon Con this Labor Day weekend. My dad is having some back surgery so I will be taking care of him during his recovery. It’ll be the first Dragon Con I’ve missed since 1989. Feels weird, but technically, I’m still part of the con on the virtual side so that’s something. I’m excited to head back in 2022.Work continues apace on my many projects, which is always nice. You can learn more about upcoming projects and some free fiction below. A reminder, most of my ebooks are FREE to read if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription.

Valhalla Press: From The Desk of John Stamp

John Stamp talks about his upcoming Jackson Cole Novel series in his latest blog post.
I know this is supposed to be a crime blog. But I got a new book coming out!

Acquisitor, A Jackson Cole Novel, preorder now ( arrives September 3rd, 2021. Just in time for a long Labor Day weekend. Acquisitor picks up about a year after the events of Shattered Circle. In Shattered Circle, Detective Jackson Cole came face to face with supernatural evil. A blood cult sacrificing women and using powerful demonic forces to wreak havoc around the City of Charleston. He put a stop to them. It almost cost him his life.

In Acquisitor, something is killing the homeless around Charleston, SC. Cole, and his Partner Miles Otis’ only witness is also their only suspect in a bizarre homicide. She says she’s a witch, and that a hellhound is hunting people. Any other two cops would laugh and lock her up in a padded room. Unfortunately, Cole and Otis have seen a hellhound at work before. Something tore a suspect apart in his own interrogation room a year earlier. Cole and Otis want nothing to do with evil like that again. They just want to work cases and solve crimes like normal police. But if they don’t take it on, who will?

Acquisitor blends the gritty police procedural with a dark urban fantasy. Trying to make sense of the supernatural through the lens of pragmatic police work creates something unique to both the crime and the fantasy genres. These two books have been an absolute blast to write. I don’t want to say any more because I don’t want to give anything away. I will say though, I am thrilled to introduce Natalie King to the Shattered Circle universe. She’s the witch I was talking about earlier. I think your going to like her.

Here is the back cover blurb about Acquisitor:

Detective Miles Otis pointed, “That’s an arm.”Jackson Cole sighed, “Yeah.”Otis studied the random severed limb for moment, “You ever miss the good old days, dope and drive bys…?”You catch one strange case and suddenly they call you the Freak Police behind your back. If its anything even remotely weird, Cole and Otis get the call. Now they find themselves in a vacant lot staring at a forearm.Fingerprints give them a name. Hardnosed police work generates a suspect. She’s a witch, so was the guy who’s forearm sits in a cooler at the coroner’s office. The witch says a hellhound killed her friend. And it’s hunting the homeless of Charleston.Witches, magic…a hellhound? Any other two detectives would laugh at a story like that and lock that crazy witch up. But Cole and Otis have faced the supernatural before. It almost killed them. There’s a reason they call them Freak Police.

Here are what readers say about Shattered Circle :

“Although this book is crime thriller, it has a supernatural twist to it. If you like a crime triller and/or like supernatural, you cannot go wrong reading this book.”“Shattered Circle This is an excellent book. I want more. I want to see it on the big screen!! John Stamp is a wonderful author, who takes you with him on a journey into an amazing world that did not allow me to put the book down.”“Your attention to detail and knowledge of the occult is wonderful and spelling binding. Thank you for a great read.”

Can’t wait to hear what you all think of Acquisitor. More to come.

Valhalla Books Let’s The Freaks Out

Jackson Cole is a newly minted homicide detective thrown head first into the grinder when he is ordered to investigate the grisly murder of three women.

The victims are marked with odd, occult symbols and the press is stirring up a killer cult frenzy in the media. The mayor, the Chief of Police, and Cole’s Captain want results to calm an increasingly fearful public; and Cole’s supposed partner is nowhere to be found. Cole has zero leads, he’s floundering under the scrutiny of his entire command staff until a stranger shows up spouting a wild theory: blood magic.

Floundering or not, Cole won’t even consider it. There is no such thing as magic, no such thing as voodoo; and there are no demons roaming the Charleston Peninsula. There’s always a rational explanation for the evil humans commit upon one another. Then a demon tries to take Cole’s head off.

How do you stop a supernatural evil, something ancient and unencumbered by the laws of either physics or man? Especially when all you bring to the fight is a pistol and a pair of handcuffs. If Jackson Cole wants this case to close, he will have to take on a world of the impossible. Then he’ll have to survive it.

Pre-order is now available for Shattered Circle and Acquisitor by Author John Stamp!

Bold Venture Press: A Sixgun Says Goodbye

Benedict and Brazos #8A Sixgun Says Goodbye by E. Jefferson Clay
Hank Brazos’s reunion with his commanding officer was cut short when Colonel Clairborne was kidnapped. His daughter received a $20,000 ransom demand. For Brazos, the course was clear: Save Clairborne, then pay the kidnappers with bullets. Duke Benedict had other ideas — continue the hunt for Bo Rangle and the stolen Confederate gold. They went their separate ways, and rendezvoused in a gunfire hellstorm when the kidnappers decided to kill them as down-payment for the Colonel’s safety!

Dane begins to live a double life, one of crime at night, and honest work at the Daily Sentinel during the day, all to implement one simple, bold, and daring plan: Wipe out the Green Hornet!
