Createspace Censors Pulp Modern!

For those of you who actually purchased Pulp Modern: Number Four, open it up and take a look at the advertisement for Uncle B's Drive-In Fiction in the front of the book.  Notice something missing?  The pdf I sent to createspace included the words 'Now available at Amazon.com' on the bottom of the picture in the ad.  Notice how it's not there now?  That's createspace.  For perspective on how absurd this is, consider this: I have been nagging Amazon to list the publisher of the books as Uncle B. Publications, instead of createspace (because we still live in a world where douchebags think there's something wrong with print-on-demand).  Amazon refuses to dishonor createspace.  But it looks like createspace doesn't give a shit about amazon.

Things that make you go hmm...

Why don't we all write to Amazon and let them know what createspace is doing?

Pulp Modern: Number Four

For those of you not yet aware, Pulp Modern: Number Four is now available.  I cannot stress how great this issue is.  Each issue has gotten progressively better.  The "literary" content continues to increase, allowing us all to stick our tongues out at the elitists who think "genre" fiction is bad (or just have yet to figure out that "literary" fiction IS a genre).  The format inside the journal is a little different.  There are no separate sections.  The stories are presented in an order I think appropriate.  If you have yet to make the investment in an issue of Pulp Modern, now is the time.  Trust me.

PS -- Pulp Modern is open to submissions, for those of you who (like me) can't afford to check its status on Duotrope.
