So…

Let’s talk about what I couldn’t talk about which is now okay to talk about…

Derrick Ferguson‘s signature adventurer, the international instigator himself, DILLON is making a move to Pro Se helmed by his truly, Tommy Dollar…

I mean, Hancock, Tommy Hancock.

Oh there’s origin stories and inside baseball and hurrying up to wait behind this…

…and hey, someday we may get around to that “Behind the Music” episode…

…dibs on disgruntled bassist who went on to form a Steely Dan tribute cover band…

But here’s the thing, I finally get two great tastes that go great together…

…screw the peanut butter and chocolate candy cup thing…

…unless you have some to give away, then it’s gimme, gimme, gimme…

The fact that DILLON is now running out of Pro Se allows the firm of Ferguson and Ali to continue practically undisturbed on sprucing up Dillon tales of old, plus (if I’m lucky enough to pass muster on my audition tape six years running) I will probably be on board for the duration…

Which is good, Pro Se has been where I’ve done some of my best work like Barry Reese‘s LAZARUS GRAY and BLACK PULP (hey they are the things I point to with pride often), so it’s gratifying to know some of my even better work will be appearing there as well.

For me at least, when I got the gig for DILLON from Derrick, who had kindly referred to a fan related image as good, I knew that despite his obvious blindness leading him to a hack like me, this was the best luck I’ve ever gotten from the visually challenged.

And Tommy, bless him, has a similar affliction, so if I’m lucky I won’t be found out any time soon.

Plus you folks get the biggest win out of all this, because we’re all here to deliver something special to you…

You can’t go wrong with Derrick doing what he loves with a character he’s fully invested in…

…and Pro Se backing that up is pretty much the best team up you’re going to find between here and Xonira.

So, to sum up, DILLON comes to Pro Se…

…and I hope you folks are ready, because together, they’re about to give you a damn fun ride.

Be good to yourselves and each other.

PIONEERING NEW PULP CHARACTER JOINS PRO SE-
DERRICK FERGUSON’S DILLON IMPRINT DEBUTS IN 2017

A handful of characters make every ‘best of’ list when characters considered part of the New Pulp Movement are discussed. The New Pulp Movement is a community of writers, artists, and publishers associated because the work they produce is written/created in the Pulp style that grew out of the classic Pulp magazines of the early 20th Century. Author Derrick Ferguson’s extremely popular ‘global instigator’ and adventurer, Dillon, is one such character. And now Dillon and the entire, ever expanding universe he lives in is a part of Pro Se Productions. DERRICK FERGUSON’S DILLON is a new author/character centered imprint from Pro Se to debut later this year.

“People may ask “Why bring Dillon to Pro Se now?” says Ferguson. “The question could be more properly phrased as “Why did it take so long?” After all, I’ve had a long and harmonious relationship with Tommy Hancock for twenty years now and Dillon would have seemed from the beginning to be an excellent fit for Pro Se Productions as they have a reputation for innovation and showcasing remarkably vital characters. Everybody has to choose their own path and mine led me down a long and interesting road. But now it’s time to expand Dillon and his universe to a wider audience and Pro Se Productions can help me do just that.”

“I don’t have words,” says Tommy Hancock, Pro Se Productions Partner and Editor in Chief, “for what Dillon coming to Pro Se means to me, both professionally and personally. When it comes to action adventure storytelling with both shades of classic Pulp and modern relevance, no one does it better than Derrick Ferguson. And Dillon is a character that not only embodies multiple traits and concepts that make him leap off the page. He is the seed from which an entire universe of fantastic characters, awesome storylines, and the epitome of excitement grow from. DERRICK FERGUSON’S DILLON is going to be a helluva lot of fun for all involved.”

DERRICK FERGUSON’S DILLON will debut in late 2017 with DILLON ANNUAL ONE, a collection of Dillon short stories. This will be a recurring title in the imprint each year. Ferguson will also explore Dillon’s universe in various ways under the imprint.

Sean E. Ali will format and design all books in the imprint, including creating the covers. The imprint logo is also designed and created by Ali.
