With twenty-four fabulous back issues, one to mark each day of Advent, we hope to share with you the joy and magic of the season. When you purchase an issue on its corresponding day on our Advent Calendar, not only will you be collecting great literature, but you will also receive a special gift.
In our third issue of Pulp Literature Magazine:
Behind the evocative cover, “Youth Hostels of Faery” by Tais Teng, you’ll find …
- Joan MacLeod’s ‘The Salt Tour’, an exceptionally beautiful story from the golden age of European backpacking.
- ‘The Poison Pen Affair’, where Mel Anastasiou’s intrepid amateur sleuth Stella Ryman defies the constraints of her care home.
- Gritty storytelling that continues to amaze us in ‘Wager’ by Bob Thurber.
Poetry by Diane Tucker, Darrell Lindsey and Jeffrey C Alfier.
- Susan Pieters’ ‘Invisible’, Laird Long’s ‘The Big Con’, and Conor Power-Smith’s ‘Love for Sale’, all stories that involve different kinds of love, and different kinds of blindness
- Our graphic novel adaptation of Sylvia Stopforth’s ‘Dragon Rock’, describing the biggest blind spot of all.
- Quantum physics in a handbag and stalker mascots in a theme park with Deborah Walker’s ‘Aunty Merkel’ and Fred Zackel’s “Snow White is Mine!”
- And our next installment of Allaigna’s Song, in which our heroine learns to illuminate the ordinary.
“My favourite of the four volumes; ‘Love for Sale’ and ‘Wager’ are two brilliant stories. The rest is good too :)” – Guy Windsor, Finland

As we begin this holiday season and our look back at the great issues of the past, I feel the same suspense I did as a child, knowing that with each day comes the treasure of the season’s familiar comforts and of the unexpected surprises along the way.
