It’s not every year you get to celebrate publishing 20 issues of genre-busting literature. We want our readers to reap the rewards, and our contributors to shine in the spotlight, so every week we are offering up a selection of deeply discounted past issues, based on one of the authors, poets, or artists whose work fills the magazine’s pages. Welcome to week 16 of Pulp Literature’s Year of Authors!
22nd – 26th April 2019
Monday: Jay Allisan, Issue 15
Jay Allisan is part-time author and full-time thinker. She grew up on a steady diet of superhero comics and still wants to be Batman someday. While she’ll read and write just about anything, psychological thrillers and character-driven stories are right up her alley. Her writing is proudly fuelled by the red Lindor chocolates. She lives in southern Alberta, where she works as a swim coach. Her short story ‘Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang’ was the runner-up in the 2017 Bumblebee Flash Fiction Contest.
