Celebrating 5 Years of Literary Magic

In the publishing game, five years is significant, and we know who to thank: our authors, artists, and loyal readers who make it all possible. Join us on Sunday, December 16th, at our Literary Launch and Swordfighting Salon for a civilized afternoon of author readings, an artisan craft fair, tea and pastries, book sales & signings … and swordfighting!

Literary Launch & Swordfighting Salon

This event is a co-fundraiser for Academie Duello’s Youth Outreach Program and Pulp Literature Press.  It is also the launch party for our five year anniversary issue—Number 21— featuring Evelyn Lau. There will be readings from JJ Lee, Matt Hughes, Emily Lonie, Mitchell Toews, Graham DarlingMargot Spronk, Laura Kostur, Greg Brown, Patrick Bollivar, Jessica Fabrizius, Susan Pieters, and JM Landels.

Take a breather from the holiday rush to enjoy readings from local authors, swordplay demonstrations by Academie Duello and ample time to chat with authors, drink tea, and scoop up last minute stocking stuffers by our talented artisans.

We’d love to see you there!

Swords at the Ready

Take a wander over to the blog of swordfighting guru Guy Windsor who is writing a book on … well, Swordfighting … and you’ll catch a sneak peak of some upcoming Pulp Lit fight scenes.  There’s part of an upcoming chapter of Allaigna’s Song (in which she meets her heart’s desire) plus some rough panel sketches of “The Ambush”, a graphic short story scheduled for issue 8.
