What a pleasure to read Brenda Carre’s Gret in Issue 15. She gives us the unique voice of a talented young vagabond who will risks her soul against magical forces to save a world that’s been anything but kind to her:
My mam always told me there’s three ways to prosper best and all begin with L.
Location’s one. No prospering’s ever done by thief or witch if the job begins in the wrong place or time. Lissome tongue was next. No matter how much wisdom a gal had to her, good learning didn’t go far if she couldn’t talk her way out of a bad deal. And last was Lightning touch. That meant the effortless sliding of nimble fingers in-and-out of pockets without being cotched.
With these words Brenda Carre takes us straight into a world of magic, terror and transformation. This first chapter, complete in itself, leaves us hoping to read the novel as soon as humanly, or magically, possible.
A new project on her website at brendacarre.com, is a story tantalizingly titled ‘Rats at Sea’ in the forthcoming anthology, No Humans Allowed, edited by John Helfers. “Will ships’ rats desert an English Frigate under fire from the French during the Napoleonic Wars? Not if their leader is a doughty young rat named Willy Topper and not if he needs to save the life of his one true love.”
I love our cover art. For me, one of the greatest joys of the magazine is finding and choosing paintings to wrap our words in. But I’m always a bit sad when the necessary banners and text cover up some of the beautiful images.
So to celebrate International Women’s day, we offer you a sneak peek of the cover art for Pulp Literature Issue 15, Summer 2017 by the amazing S. Ross Browne. Here is The Huntress, in her full undecorated glory. Enjoy!
