Five years ago, we released our very first issue of Pulp Literature magazine. It has been an amazing journey, made possible by the incredible talent of the writers and artists who are part of our Pulp Literature family.
In honour of our anniversary, and of all the people who have contributed to our success, 2019 will be our Year of Authors, celebrating the amazing artists and authors from the first twenty issues of Pulp Literature.
Every weekday we’ll feature one of these creators on our Facebook page, and the issues that person contributed to will be on sale for a whopping 50% off. Make a note of the authors and artists you’re following and jump on these deals. Some print issues are rare and getting scarcer, so nab them while you still can!
Here’s our line-up for the first week …
