Murder, Betrayal, Lies, and Secrets. Pro Se Productions’ latest Thriller from Author Tim Holter Bruckner has all of this and more. Shell Game is now available in print and digital format from Pro Se, a leading Publisher of Genre Fiction.

“Bruckner does it again,” says Tommy Hancock, Pro Se Productions’ Editor in Chief. “Tim has proven already he has the chops to write hard boiled mystery with ‘Sensible Redhorn’ and Victorian styled sleuthing with ‘The Adventure of the Pearl Le Fong’. And now he knocks Noir out of the park with Shell Game. The characters ooze and leap off the page and the plot delivers blow after blow as Tim takes you deep into the lives of people who live in the gray area between good and evil. ‘Shell Game’ is possibly Tim’s best work yet.”


What do you know about someone? Someone close. A friend. A loved one. You know only what they want you to know. Nate Selegman’s friend, Wilson Montgomery, a.k.a., Turtle, was a piece of work. He was a lying, conniving, self-serving jerk. And someone murdered him. And enjoyed doing it. The cops have no leads and no suspects. Nate decides to find out what happened to his old friend. The more he discovers the less he knows. One thing becomes clear. The Turtle he thought he knew was someone else. The Turtle he uncovers plunges him into a world of crime, double-dealing, blackmail and murder. Trust is expensive, and his life, it turns out, is cheap.

From Author Tim Holter Bruckner (‘Sensible Redhorn’, ‘The Adventure of the Pearl Le Fong’) comes a new tale of noir and mystery- ‘Shell Game’! From Pro Se Productions.

Featuring a stunning cover by Bruckner and print formatting and logo design by Percival Constantine, ‘Shell Game’ is available now at Amazon at this link and Pro Se’s own store for 10.00.

Bruckner’s latest digest novel is also available as an Ebook, designed and formatted by Forrest Bryant and available for only $2.99 for the Kindle at…/Shell-Game-Tim-Holter-Bruckner-eboo… and for most digital formats via Smashwords at

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
