HELL IN HEAVEN Gets Heavenly Reviews

We're thrilled with the reviews that are coming in for Dead Man #3 Hell in Heaven. This one from Post-Modern Pulps was especially flattering, since they really seem to get what we are trying to do with the series and with this book. They say, in part:
THE DEAD MAN #3: Hell in Heaven is a direct spiritual descendant of the sorts of awesome pulp action adventure tales that the greats like Robert E. Howard loved to write. Its got magic, its got evil, its got murder, its got beautiful women and grotesque violent freaks out for our hero's blood. It's even got axe-fighting and law-giving and a general tone of complete badassery.
[...]By tapping into the sort of stories written by Howard and Leiber that I feel defined the 30's Sword & Sorcery pulps, and a generation later the post-modern pulps of such writers as Gardner Fox and Karl Wagner, Hell in Heaven further cements THE DEAD MAN series as a crossroads of pulp action, a storyline open and flexible enough to accommodate any niches or sub-genres. This means that as each new author comes in to write the next volume in the series, they have the artistic license to approach the story from the angle they find the most comfortable, ensuring a lot of variety and quality in these stories for a long time to come. 
We are flattered and humbled. We feel the same way about this review from Right What You Know, which says, in part:
This series has kept me rapt from the first page, quite an accomplishment considering that the authors have been running a baton relay of writing. Fortunately these authors are the Jamaican sprint team doing the 4x100m relay, each stage just gets better and better
We hope you'll like Dead Man #3 Hell In Heaven as much as they did!
