In honour of Pulp Literature Press’s fifth anniversary and of all the people who have contributed to our success we have declared 2019 our Year of Authors, celebrating the amazing artists and authors from the first twenty issues of Pulp Literature.
Every weekday we are featuring one of these creators on our Facebook page, and the issues that person contributed to will be on sale for a whopping 50% off. Make a note of the authors and artists you’re following and jump on these deals. Some print issues are rare and getting scarcer, so nab them while you still can!
Here’s our line-up for the fourth week …
28th January – 1st February 2019
Monday: Arantzazu Martinez, Issue 4
An academic painter from Vitoria, Spain, Arantzazu Martinez attended the Fine Arts University of the Basque Country. She has been recognized as an ARC Living Master by the Art Renewal Center, and was awarded the William Bouguereau Award in 2013. Most of her artwork belongs to private collections but now we can see some of her paintings in the European Museum of Modern Art in Barcelona, Spain. Pulp Literature approached her on spec to see if any of her paintings were available as book covers, and we were thrilled to be able to purchase use of “The Fall of the Ego” for Issue 4.
Tuesday: Ashley-Elizabeth Best, Issue 9
Ashley-Elizabeth Best lives and writes inKingston, Ontario. Her work can be seen in Fjords, Tampa Review, CV2, The Columbia Review, Berfrois, The Rusty Toque, The Battersea Review, The Puritan, Zouch Magazine, Union Station Magazine, Grist, Ambit Magazine, Poetry Salzburg Review and Branch Magazine, among other publications. Her debut collection of poems, Slow States of Collapse, was shortlisted for the Robert Kroetsch Award for Innovative Poetry. Her poem ‘Wintering’ appeared in Pulp Literature Issue 9.
In her own words, AY Dorsey has written too many YA novels for her own good, but we believe that a productive writer is the best kind! With a total of 35 books and numerous short stories and screenplays available for public consumption, AY Dorsey is certainly productive. Her paranormal short story, ‘Falling’, appeared in Pulp Literature Issue 2,Spring 2014.
