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 21 of Pulp Literature’s Year of Authors!
20th – 24th May 2019
Monday: Keltie Zubko, Issue 19
Keltie Zubko is a Western Canadian writer who divides her time between Vancouver Island and Alberta. She has an extensive background writing about freedom of speech legal cases, but now prefers to explore our human relationship with technology in her short stories and novels. Her story ‘Towing the Mustang’ was a runner up in the 2017 Surrey International Writers’ Conference Storyteller’s Award.
Tuesday: Kerry Craven, Issue 18
Kerry Craven is an English and creative writing teacher in Oshawa, Ontario. She has always been an avid reader, and after two decades of teaching English literature and creative writing, she began to apply what she learned to her own short stories and poems. Currently, she is branching out into the writing of middle grade fiction. Kerry is a great lover of dogs, and promises that no dog will ever die in her stories. Her short story ‘Meggie’ was the runner up in the 2017 Raven Short Story Contest.
Wednesday: Kimberleigh Roseblade, Issue 4
Kimberleigh Smithbower Roseblade has one of the most interesting and appropriate last names you may come across. She considers herself to be one of those dreamers and doers that sees her glass as half full as opposed to half empty. Her heart beats to the rhythms of Western Martial Arts, music making, slam poetry, and any activity that gets her feet (and the rest of her) wet and her blood pumping. She hopes to shine light onto others living with incurable and chronic illnesses by being raw and open about her own struggles and her own victories.
Thursday: Kirsty Favell, Issue 6
Kirsty Favell is a UK-based commercial copywriter. For as long as she can remember she has also been a ‘closet’ creative writer. Her first novel, The Magical Adventures of the Oldest Rockers in Town, was published last year, finally outing her as the permanently confused ‘executive-hippy’ she really is.
KL Mabbs grew up wanting to write about heroes the way Robert E. Howard and Edgar Rice Burroughs did, with passion and emotion. He met the magician in ‘Death of Me’ very much how it is described in the story. Three minutes later, when he walked back the same way, the magician was gone. Such is the way of inspiration. Look for KL Mabbs’s Spellsword, Wolf: A Military P.A.C. Novel, and The God’less Saga.
