2019 Year of Authors: 11 – 15 Mar

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 tenth week …

11th – 15th March 2019

Monday: Eileen Kernaghan, Issue 5

Featured author of Issue 5, Eileen Kernaghan is also the author of nine historical fantasy novels and a three-time winner of the Aurora Award for Canadian speculative fiction. Her latest novel, Sophie, in Shadow (Thistledown Press, 2014) is set in 1914 India. An associated novel, Wild Talent: a Novel of the Supernatural (2008) was shortlisted for the 2009 Sunburst Award for Canadian Literature of the Fantastic, while The Alchemist’s Daughter (2004) was shortlisted for the Sheila Egoff Award for Children’s Literature. As well, her short stories and poems have appeared in many North American literary and speculative publications.

Tuesday: EL Firestine, Issue 2

Erin Lee Firestine, of Issue 2 fame, enjoys creeping people out more than is probably healthy (but we don’t judge). She makes jewellery and fairy wings in her spare time, enjoys cheese in all of its wide and varied forms, and dreams of moving to Canada someday, where she plans to build a truly ludicrous number of snowmen. 

Wednesday: Elaine McDivitt, Issue 18

She has two adult children who recall their mother constantly reading to them and to herself. Nine years ago she pursued her passion for writing by taking the Humber College mentor program. She loves her book club so much she works her holidays around it. Her story, ‘The Tape’, appeared in Issue 18 as the winner of the 4th annual Raven Short Story Contest.

Thursday: Elizabeth Armerding, Issue 13

Elizabeth Armerding lives in Vancouver, BC, and enjoys bikes, condiments, and leaving an unwelcome trail of glitter. Her poem, ‘F/G/C/F (Country Love Sestina)’ breaks down the components of love and a good country music song.

Friday: Emily Linstrom, Issue 10

Emily Linstrom is an American writer and artist residing in Italy.  Her work has been featured in a number of publications including Carve Magazine, Three Rooms PressA Women’s Thing, and The Wisdom Daily.
