Pulp Lit and, ew…Centipedes

Do you like pulp fiction? (Not the movie, the literature.) If you do then you’ll love everything about Pulp Literature— a digest-sized magazine offering the best of all kinds of genre fiction: mystery, sci-fi, fantasy, horror… you know, all the good stuff. Each issue features short stories, novel excerpts, novellas, and more. The publisher’s motto? “Good books for the price of a beer!” I’m all for that.
