Timothy Hallinan’s private eye Simeon Grist has gone out of print and he’s pissed about it.

Simeon thought he was living a good life—solving mysteries, falling in and out of love, risking life and limb to do the right thing. Then the last Simeon Grist mystery was pulped to make newsprint, and he woke up in a room where nothing ever changed except his sense of who he was: his entire existence was a work of fiction that the real world was in the process of forgetting. And when one of his few remaining readers is murdered, Simeon discovers that he can—at great risk—step out of the pages of his books and into the world of the living. The only problem: even if he succeeds in solving the murder, winning the love of a real-life woman, and finding the man who wrote him, he could still die trying.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Harry Potter meets Harry Bosch.”

    Tim Tigner, bestselling author

  • “Pulped is at once a gritty private detective yarn, an enchanting fantasy, an unconventional love story, a laugh-out-loud comedy, and an insightful exploration of the nature of storytelling—a triumph of imagination told in prose as precise as a sniper’s rifle by a novelist with the soul of a poet.”

    Bruce DeSilva, Edgar Award–winning author

  • “The most imaginative, quirky, and fun book I’ve read in a very long time. If you’ve ever wondered what happens to your favorite story characters after you put the book away, you have to read Pulped. I loved every bit it.”

    Wendy Hornsby, Edgar Award–winning author

  • “With Pulped, it’s now official: the Crime-Writing Hall of Fame needs to build Tim Hallinan his own entire wing.

    Lou Berney, Edgar Award–winning author

  • “A tour de force of the writer’s art and imagination…It’s funny and touching, and you won’t read anything like it again this year. Or probably ever.”

    Bill Crider, Anthony Award–winning author

  • “Sheer genius. Hallinan creates a novel world that has you thinking Haruki Murakami, and looking at reading in an entirely new light. An instant classic.”

    Jeffrey Siger, Barry and Lefty nominated bestselling author
