My name is Bryce Beattie, and I'm addicted to pulp. I got into it many years ago, and I just can't break free. When I was a kid, some careless adult left a tape with several episodes of "The Shadow" radio show lying around. After I listened to that, I was hooked. Pretty soon, audio just wasn't enough and I moved on to to the paperback stuff. At first it was just detective fiction, then I started reading old Conan stories and yarns about John Carter of Mars. Now I'm pretty hopeless. I tried to quit once, but soon afterward put on a lot of weight, so I started back up. Now, I'm so deep into pulp fiction that I write my own.

Oasis has a cheerful, feel-good quality, which is good for a story that's basically morbid. Quite a page-turner. The characters weren't described in sufficient detail for my liking, but describing them in more detail would have slowed down the tempo as the story is fast-moving. The characters still come alive enough in spite of that. My favourite one is Samson and it's a shame the zombies seem to have got him, but I haven't read the sequel yet--maybe there's some hope for him. Another thing I liked--there were no F-words or C-words and no explicit sex. A breath of fresh air these days. Would appreciate a return read for my first novel.
