BLACK CENTIPEDE CREATOR SIGNS ON FOR SERIES IN PRO SE PRODUCTIONS SIGNATURE LINE


 

Pro Se Productions announces that the creator of one of the most popular New Pulp franchises in the last 3 years is bringing a different view of his fictional world to a series as a part of the PRO SE SINGLE SHOT SIGNATURE line. Chuck Miller, the man behind The Black Centipede and his wild cast of supporting characters, will show even more of why his work is often referred to as ‘Psychedlic Pulp’ in his digital single series-THE FABULOUS WORLD OF ZENITH.

“In THE FABULOUS WORLD OF ZENITH,” says Miller, “we will examine the world of the Black Centipede, Vionna Valis, Mary Kelly and Doctor Unknown Junior from a variety of strange and oblique angles.

“Zenith, of course, is the city in which the Black Centipede and the other characters in his circle of friends and foes make their home. The series will feature both standalone short stories and multi-part epics. In the first of these, we will be taking a look into THE JOURNAL OF BLOODY MARY JANE. For the first time, in her own words, we will have a glimpse into the life of the Black Centipede's closest friend and most implacable opponent, the mysterious and deadly Mary Jane Gallows.

"What happened to her after she killed Lizzie Borden's father and stepmother in 1892, and before she returned to Fall River, Massachusetts in 1927? You will thrill to her surreal encounters with Ponce De Leon, Cotton Mather, Professor James Moriarty, Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin, Doctor Herbert West, Mary Pickford, H. P. Lovecraft, and many others-- including her father, the diabolical genius known as Jack the Ripper. Follow her as she struggles to understand just who and what she really is, and carves out her own unique place in the world.”

Future installments of the series will focus on Vionna Valis, Mary Jane Kelly, Dana Unknown, Jack Christian, Doctor Unknown Senior, Percival Doiley, Stan Bartowski, and other heroes, criminals, lunatics and more-or-less ordinary citizens who inhabit THE FABULOUS WORLD OF ZENITH!

THE FABULOUS WORLD OF ZENITH by Chuck Miller will debut In April.

Chuck Miller was born in Ohio, lived in Alabama for many years, and now resides in Norman, Oklahoma, for reasons best left to the imagination. He is a Libra whose interests include monster movies, comic books, music and writing. He holds a BA in creative writing from the University of South Alabama.

He is the creator/writer of TALES OF THE BLACK CENTIPEDE, THE INCREDIBLE ADVENTURES OF VIONNA VALIS AND MARY JANE KELLY, THE BAY PHANTOM CHRONICLES, and THE MYSTIC FILES OF DOCTOR UNKNOWN JUNIOR. He has also written stories featuring such classic characters as Jill Trent: Science Sleuth, Armless O'Neil, The Griffon, and others.

Miller received the BEST NEW WRITER OF 2011 Award from Pulp Ark. His first novel, the critically acclaimed "Creeping Dawn: The Rise of the Black Centipede" was published in 2011 by Pro Se Press. The second installment in the Black Centipede series, "Blood of the Centipede" was published in 2012. "Vionna and the Vampires," the first installment of The Incredible Adventures of Vionna Valis and Mary Jane Kelly, debuted in March 2014 and "Black Centipede Confidential" is slated for release later this year.
