Profane: New journal seeking politically incorrect material

Some folks who are sick of political "correctness" have started a journal dedicated to publishing fiction, poetry, and articles that don't adhere to the mamby-pamby, colorless, tasteless, odorless material most "literary" journals insist on boring the rest of us with.  Send your offensive work to Profane.  Good luck and keep pissing off the masses!

Stanley Rutgers collection at Amazon

Stanley Rutgers informed me that Elixir-Knightly Press has just put out a collection of his stories at Amazon called Wonderful Terror: Five Tales of Horror and Science Fiction.  I've read most of the stories in the collection.  Stanley is truly a "middle-of-the-road" kind of guy.  His stories swing from left-wing to right-wing with little regard to the cult-like clinging folks on either side of the aisle practice these days.  He is also a great pulp writer and reminds me quite a bit of PKD and George Orwell.

Talkin' Slasher Formula at Johnny Got His Chainsaw

While I don't think the slashers were as radical as I did a few years ago, I still find reason to suggest these films are NOT conservative at johnny got his chainsaw.  Check it out!

Mr. Cizak in All Due Respect #3

Folks, I've been trapped in a torture dungeon known as an MFA program for the last three years.  Enough is enough.  I've finished the degree and returned to writing what I enjoy most--fiction where stuff happens!  I'm honored to have a crime story in the third issue of ALL DUE RESPECT.  Other folks coming to that party include Jake Hinkson, Patti Abbott, and Chris Leek, just to name a few.  If you haven't caught up with the magazine version of ADR, you're missing something very special.  Chris Rhatigan and company have put together an entertaining journal that combines fiction with reviews and interviews.  It's the kind of publication you look for at your local magazine rack and simply can't find.

More news on that later.

Pulp Modern #8: Drugs

So I've been impressed with the stories that came in for the thieves and liars issue.  It's going to take me a while to get through them.  However, once I announce the release of Pulp Modern #7, I will begin accepting submissions for the next issue.  The theme for #8 is drugs.

There are so many ways to work drugs into a pulp fiction story, I don't think I have to provide any hints or clues.

A few things about drugs:  The U.S. government has rarely messed up anything as spectacularly as its drug policy.  Stories that sound like ABC After School Specials will probably not do well with me.  The deadline will be October 1, 2014.
