An innovative Publisher of Genre Fiction known for reviving forgotten Pulp characters in new tales, Pro Se Productions announces the latest release from its Pulp Obscura imprint, in conjunction with Altus Press. Featuring a character of mystery and intrigue, The New Adventures of Semi Dual is now available in print and digital format.

“Semi Dual,” says Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “is unlike any other occult investigator to follow him, primarily because he incorporates aspects of every type of mystic detective you could imagine. Aloof, mysterious, dangerous, adventurous, intelligent, and more, Semi Dual is the ultimate occult investigator. Also, his story as told originally was so involved and intricate, the character essentially demands new stories be written about him and Pulp Obscura is glad to oblige.”

Prepare to be amazed and astonished as the first occult detective of Pulp Fiction walks once more from the halls of the Urania Building and joins the fight against evil! Pulp Obscura, an imprint of Pro Se Productions, in conjunction with Altus Press proudly presents 'The New Adventures of Semi Dual'! Created by J. U. Giesy and J. B. Smith, Semi Dual was considered Pulp's first occult detective. Semi Dual, also known as Prince Abdul Omar of Persia, was an astrologer, a mystic, a telepath, and a psychologist. Semi Dual's name was based, in part, on his methods of investigation: "by dual solutions-- one material for material minds-- the other occult, for those who cared to sense a deeper something back of the philosophic lessons interwoven in the narrative." Assisted by his allies at Glace and Bryce, Private Investigators, Semi Dual peels away the layers of mystery to shine light on the darkness!

From out of the past comes new tales of The Master Mystic! The New Adventures of Semi Dual by I. A. Watson, Kevin Noel Olson, and James Palmer! Available from Pulp Obscura and Pro Se Productions!

Bound in a haunting cover by Mike Fyles with logo design and print formatting by Sean Ali, The New Adventures of Semi Dual is available now at Amazon at and Pro Se’s own store at for 9.00.

These three new adventures of Semi Dual are also available as an Ebook, designed and formatted by Russ Anderson and available for only $2.99 for the Kindle at and for most digital formats via Smashwords at
