Bob Greenberger launches Kickstarter for Pulp Anthology
With over 100 books and anthologies to his credit, including several for star trek, Marvel Comics and DC Comics, Robert “Bob” Greenberger has no shortage of publications. Yet, thanks to his passion for pulps, he is launching another book project to add to his impressive list of credits.
Greenberger recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his latest project: Thrilling Adventure Threads 2022 a collection of short stories inspired by the era of pulp magazines.

“Growing up, pulp magazine reprints opened my eyes to this incredible treasure trove of characters, writers, and artists,” Greenberger said. “These anthologies are my way of saying thank you and hopefully entertaining a new generation of readers.”
Greenberger, who previously held executive positions at Marvel Comics and DC Comics, is known for his work on cartoon scene, star diary, World Weekly Newsand Hellboy IIas well as his star trek novels.
