Here's the description of my latest novel, The Myth Hunter. This book also has the honorable distinction of being the first book to bear the New Pulp logo!

Ancient civilizations. Gods and monsters. All the legends of the world have elements of truth to them. And to track down those legends, there are the myth hunters. Some of them, like Elisa Hill, are explorers, trying to learn more about the world we live in. And some are soldiers of fortune, whose only goal is to profit off them.

When evidence proving the existence of the lost continent of Lemuria, Elisa embarks on a journey for the truth. And her quest will take her from the oceans of the Caribbean to the temples of India and the Ryukyu Islands of Japan. But it’s a race against time, because the mysterious sect known as the Order and a ruthless myth hunter named Seth are also after the secrets of Lemuria.


Here are what some noted pulpateers have been saying about it:

“This book is full of vivid descriptions, fantastically crafted narrative, intriguing and engaging dialogue, but its biggest star is the characterization. Constantine brings each and every character to life, not just with vivid details, but with emotions and passions. Even the characters we are meant to like leave us feeling a little divided on just how much we like them, and that’s a sign of humanity granted to a written creation, a skill many writers never ever develop.”
-Tommy Hancock

“From the opening action sequence to the last climatic battle with a cruel and vicious assassin, ‘The Myth Hunter’ is a super charged thriller that never lets up…a solid, masterful thriller by a young writer realizing his tremendous potential.”
-Ron Fortier

"What separates Elisa from Lara Croft and the others who came before her is that Constantine takes the time to flesh her out, showing her to be a flawed but ultimately heroic figure. She's not just your standard issue "adventuring hottie," and that works well for the book as a whole."
-Barry Reese

"Percival continues creating his own mythology and populating them with wonderfully engaging characters. The Myth Hunter won't disappoint fans of his work."
-Derrick Ferguson


If you're interested, you can pick it up in paperback and ebook.

What's that? You mean you haven't picked up a copy of The Myth Hunter, the inaugural book of the New Pulp Movement? Well, what are you waiting for? Because the price has just been slashed! Now, you can pick up the e-book for the low, low price of $0.99!

Not only that, but you can also pick up my previous book, Love & Bullets, for the same price!


Two bucks gets you two great tales of two-fisted action! What more could you want?
