We love all the stories in our magazine, and choosing which ones to submit for prizes is like choosing between one’s children. But we only get to nominate six pieces for the Pushcart Prize, and this year’s nominees are:
- ‘Stalk’ by George McWhirter (Issue 9)
- ‘Taraxicum Officinale’ by Mary H Auerbach Rykov (Issue 9)
- ‘Uncanonical Murder’ by Carol Berg (Issue 10)
- ‘Vellum’ by Andrea Lewis (Issue 10)
- ‘How to Write a Successful Obituary for a Superhero’ by Matthew Hooton (Issue 11)
- ‘If You’d Like to Make a Call, Please Hang Up’ by Bob Thurber (Issue 12)
We have our fingers crossed and we wish these authors all the best of luck as we send their stories off.
To read these fine stories you can purchase all four digital versions of the 2016 issues for only $15 on the Something Novel Kickstarter (select the Digital Sampler). But hurry — only until 11pm today!
By popular request we’ve added an option for 2016 print subscriptions for Pulp Literature to our current Colouring Paradise campaign. That way, if you love your print copies of Pulp but have no use for a printed version of the colouring book, you can still renew through Kickstarter.
A print subscription of four big issues is $60, which includes postage anywhere in North America, a digital subscription you can gift to someone else, and the pdf version of the colouring book. You can add an additional year for yourself or a gift print subscription for someone else for only $30 — that’s half price!
Subscriptions can be back-dated to include 2014 or 2015 issues (subject to availability of back issues) or can start later if your current subscription hasn’t run out yet.
For 2016 we have stories from George McWhirter, Carol Berg, Matthew Hooton, CC Humphreys and more in the works. We have a new novella series from Mel, The Seven Swans, as well as another Stella novella, the winners of the Raven Contest, and the final chapters of Allaigna’s Song. Don’t miss out!
