An Interview with Pulp Author Joel Jenkins

The blog Dark Worlds interviews pulp sci-fi author Joel Jenkins about his first Mars novel, Dire Planet (2005), which chronicles the swashbuckling adventures of hero Garvey Dire. Inspired by Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard, Jenkins also discusses the role of pulp science fiction in this "age of post-modern reconstructionism" and voices his thoughts about the prospects for a John Carter of Mars film.

Jenkins continued the action on Dire Planet with Exiles of the Dire Planet (2006) and Into the Dire Planet (2007), all three of which were published by PulpWork Press. I believe a fourth novel is planned.
