So the big 50th anniversary of the coup in Dallas is here. Guess what else is here? PULP MODERN #6!!! Head on over to Amazon and get your copy and put a review up so others feel compelled to take part in the great independent publishing revolution!
Things start off grounded in reality. Sort of. Joe Clifford sets up the entire issue with a story where things are, appropriately, not at all what they seem. Sort of like what happened back in 1963. Then we get some 'straight' realism stories, including a piece by Rob Pierce that (in my humble opinion) should be nominated for a spot in the next Best American Short Stories collection. Ken Goldman then cranks up the 'what the hell?' factor with his story that leads into Chris Rhatigan's outrageous contribution and a story by a "new" writer named Mav Skye. The whole thing ends with Frank Sonderborg's meditation on presidential assassinations and the car that Kennedy died in. Hopefully the fiction in Pulp Modern #6 will live up to the fiction in the Warren Report...
