Pulp - and proud of it!
In an age where so many writers and writer wannabes are determined to produce Great Literature, or else to clone others' successes in the paranormal or romance or "mommy porn" categories, it's refreshing to see some good old-fashioned blood and guts which owes nothing to supernatural intervention.
I had the pleasure of listening to Mr. Constantine speak and talking to him afterwards at a convention last year, and I, as a devotee of the early 20th-century British pulps (Edgar Wallace et al), find myself in complete agreement with his aims of producing books that set out to entertain and amuse.
Love and Bullets does just that. It strains our credulity, and our disbelief is willingly suspended in this fast-moving tale of treachery, deceit, international criminal masterminds, and revenge. The style matches the subject matter, carrying us along in a whirl of action and adventure. Now I have to get the next titles in the series - it's that sort of book.
