2019 Year of Authors: 5th Aug – 9th Aug

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 30 of Pulp Literature’s Year of Authors!

5th – 9th August 2019

Monday: Rhea RoseIssue 12

Rhea Rose is a speculative fiction writer. She holds an MFA in creative writing from UBC, has edited poetry for Edge Press, and has hosted the Vancouver Science Fiction and Fantasy (V-Con) writers’ workshops. Her most recent work appears in Clockwork Canada and Tesseracts 20. Her three indie novels, The Final Catch: A Tarot Sorceress series, can be found at Amazon or through her website, rheaerose.weebly.com.

Tuesday: Richard E Gropp, Issue 4
Richard E. Gropp lives on the bottom of a lake in Central Florida. It is a shallow lake. He writes stories (mostly science fiction and dark fantasy), takes photographs, and lavishes attention on his husband Jim, and on his 3-year-old German shepherd, Ripley. His first novel, Bad Glass, won the Del Rey Suvudu Writing Contest and was a Bram Stoker Award finalist. His short fiction has appeared in Interzone, Wilde Stories, and Daily Science Fiction. His current novel-in-progress is an epic work of pornographic dystopia. It is only slightly autobiographical.

Issue 12 is here!

Even after 12 issues, there’s nothing like cracking open a fresh box from First Choice Books and admiring the stacks of freshly bound issues waiting to be delivered into readers’ hands.  We love that we can use a local printing house, and that they do such a beautiful job.

You can pick up your copy of Issue 12, Autumn 2016 in person this weekend at VCON, and if you’re lucky, get it signed by author Rhea Rose and cover artist Melissa Mary Duncan.  If you have time to stay around for a drink let us know — I’m sure there will be a few of us celebrating our 12th (!!) issue in the bar after the vendors’ hall closes.

img_4274For those of you who aren’t local, we’ll miss shaking your hands, but you can still order issue 12 at the pre-order discount till Friday night.

See you at VCON!

Issue 12 launching at VCON 41

Autumn_2016_cover smallThe Autumn 2016 issue of Pulp Literature will be hot off the presses in time for VCON 41 at the Sheraton Guildford in Surrey this weekend.  Author Rhea Rose and cover artist Melissa Mary Duncan will be on site and available to sign copies, as will many other previous authors and artists such as CC Humphreys, Robert J Sawyer, Eileen Kernaghan, Anat Rabkin, Laura Kostur, Susan Pieters, and JM Landels.  And, as a special bonus, our Raven Contest judge Brenda Carre will be there — this is your chance to pick her brain and discover what she loves to read!

Issue 7 coverRhea, CC, Robert, Eileen, Brenda, and Jen all have readings and panels throughout the weekend (and Jen will be picking up swords as usual at the Academie Duello demo on Saturday evening), so be sure look up their schedules and track them down.
