Choosing stories for the latest issue of Pulp Modern was more difficult than ever. The best writers, both independent and "established," are eager to see their work in the digest and there's only so much room. The decision to cut great stories has never been more painful. Here, however, is the lineup for the first of two issues celebrating Pulp Modern's 10th anniversary:
STEPHEN J. GOLDS
EDWARD A. GRAINGER
ANTHONY NEIL SMITH
The issue will also feature another article by Anthony Perconti. The usual cast and crew will be involved in putting the issue together, including art director Richard Krauss and illustrator Ran Scott.
As you wait for the new issue to arrive, feel free to read some of my work on the Internet and in print publications, including:
"Levels," a controversial flash fiction piece (that would not be controversial in a rational world) appears at Punk Noir.
"The Little Dizzies" appears in 4:20 Noir, a collection edited by J.Travis Grundon and produced by Richard Krauss for Uncle B. Publications, LLC.
"Cymbaline," a more traditional Alec Cizak crime fiction story, appears in the brand new magazine Guilty. Make sure you buy the book and give this new market some business.
At some point this year, my novel Cool It Down should be available. It picks up the story of Les Banks two years after the events of Down on the Street.
Finally, Uncle B. Publications, LLC, will begin a regular publication schedule in September. Look for a Johnny Cash-inspired anthology, a volume of Drifter Detective novellas, and a new line of poetry chapbooks.
This is it, folks. This is the revolution we've been aiming for since 2010, when I started All Due Respect and started this amazing journey.
