The end of World War II brought with it a renewed chance for peace, hope, and prosperity to the strife-ridden nations across the globe, but for some people treachery, intrigue, and conflict was in their blood…whether they liked it or not.
You’re enlisted to join forces with six stalwart pulp writers as they march into occupied territory in post-war Germany, Italy, and Japan. The Axis Powers have been vanquished, though in some camps the news either falls on deaf ears, or is a signal to work even harder to bring about the downfall of freedom-loving people everywhere.
OCCUPIED PULP offers all the two-fisted, slam-bang action and adventure that are hallmarks of the pulp tradition. Along the way, you’ll encounter fascinating heroes and villains who wage a mighty struggle to either protect the fragile peace or set the wheels of conflict and destruction back in motion.
Stay vigilant! Some enemies have not yet laid down their arms!

A fight between a second-generation superhero named Red Bolt and a villain-for-hire named Icarus goes terribly wrong, resulting in the drowning deaths of three innocent civilians and orphaning a six-year-old boy.
Racked with guilt, Red Bolt visits Cameron Wilson at the hospital every night and won't leave the boy's side until he falls asleep.
Befriended by a night-shift nurse, the man in costume begins to disclose what really happened after the fight—and why he feels the deaths of Cameron's parents and sister fall on his actions.
A superhero didn't survive that night, and Cameron and the rest of the city aren't out of danger.
Hal discovers secrets in Silo 1 that lead to him being deep-frozen. Carlton's role in Operation Fifty is revealed.
Author's Note: Republished with permission from Hugh Howey. It is recommended that you read WOOL and SHIFT prior to this story to avoid potential spoilers. While I tried to remain within the current series canon of WOOL, SHIFT, and DUST, characters and other story elements may be developed differently in the future.
There are several approaches to creating a series bible. If you have an existing series, rereading your own books and filling in existing information can help with continuity and developing potential sequels.
If you’re starting a series from scratch, you can begin with what you know about your world and use the prompts to flesh out specific details. Don’t feel obligated to fill in every category to start on your actual books. Over time, a dynamic exchange will form between your books and reference material—resulting in an overall richer story.
Following a broadcast interview about Space Station Destiny's progress, Jernard learns his friend Charlie Miller has disappeared. Jernard travels to Earth to locate the last known person Charlie contacted, Dr. Lance Jacobs.
After saying goodbye to her father earlier that morning, Jacobs's daughter Lauren drives to work and discovers her lab has been ransacked. After multiple attempts to reach her father, she discovers he's missing, too.
Unsure of whom he can trust, he seeks out his best friend from childhood, Josh McFerrin—and draws his killer to them both.
Author's note: This short story contains characters from The Hannaria Series Book 4: Something Like the Truth. While not required for understanding the overall story, events from the novel are referenced.
Icarus can put an end to it—if he doesn’t get framed in the process.
This is a short story prequel to The Heroes of Corvus: A Superhero’s Duty and takes place five years earlier.
