Some News

1. Pulp Modern has been nominated for a Spinetingler Award! Please visit and vote.

2. Pulp Modern is temporarily closed to submissions.  Look for the door to open again around August of this year.


Lately I've noticed a trend where I pass on a story and the author writes back to tell me he or she wants to remove his or her story from consideration.  Any other editors out there experienced this?  Just wondering.

Elizabeth A. White gives Pulp Modern #2 a nice review

How Elizabeth A. White can read as much as she does is amazing.  How she can write reviews about all those books is even more amazing.  She was kind enough to find time to review the latest issue of Pulp Modern.  Please give her review a read and let her know what you think.  If you haven't purchased your copy of issue two yet, please do so.  You want to be appropriately prepared for issue three, don't you?  Yes, of course.  Of course you do.

Mr. Cizak gets political with Halloween II

My theories on the significance of the original slasher films evolve yet again.  Read my review of Halloween II at Let's Kill Everybody and just try to tell me I don't need a new hobby!

Yo! Mr. C Raps

So here's what Uncle B. is cooking up for the months that are actually supposed to be warm:

Issue three of Pulp Modern will be available in late April.  To answer the question already brewing in your mind: Yes, Pulp Modern makes for an excellent graduation gift.  Your son, daughter, nephew, niece, whatever, does NOT want a car.  He or she wants a copy of Pulp Modern.  Look for the line up in late March.

There will be no summer issue of Pulp Modern.  To answer the question already brewing in your mind:  On July 4, look for a big, fat volume called Drive In Fiction.  Six low-budget novellas by myself, Garnett Elliott, Matt Funk, Jimmy Callaway, David James Keaton, and C.J. Edwards.  For the full effect, please read in your motor vehicle, under a country sky filled with stars.
