Forthcoming: Strange Gods of the Dire Planet, fourth novel in ERB-inspired Mars series by Joel Jenkins

Pulp science fiction author Joel Jenkins recently announced that Strange Gods of the Dire Planet, the fourth novel in his Dire Planet series published by Pulp Work Press, will be released August 1st, 2011 as a trade paperback book. Inspired by legendary authors Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard, and featuring hero Garvey Dire and his swashbuckling adventures on the planet Mars, here’s the promotional piece for this forthcoming Sword & Planet novel::

Displaced tens of thousands of years in time, astronaut Garvey Dire finds himself caught in Mars' savage past. Winged fiends prowl the nighttime skies and scythed beasts lumber through the violet grasses in the light of the red sun. Lost tribes celebrate strange gods with bloody rituals and crimson-masked assassins target Garvey and his newly-acquired family within the luminescent halls of the underground city of Ledgrim, even while uncovering an ancient technology capable of razing Ledgrim. Garvey Dire must violate the inner sanctums of the Technopriests and uncover their most-guarded secrets in order to defend his family and tribe against those who would destroy both in their ruthless quest for power.

If you pre-order a copy of Strange Gods of the Dire Planet through the Pulp Work Press website before August 1st, you’ll receive a 20% discount off the purchase price!
