Overview

An anthology of genre fiction that embodies the origins of the medium. This is a mix of a variety of styles, from horror and scifi to western and crime fiction. It even has a little dieselpunk thrown in.

From the Foreword:

"I named this anthology Twit Publishing Presents: PULP! for two reasons:
First, I wanted an anthology that represented the spirit of the old pulp magazines, if not the exact style. I wanted something that would be a good cross-section of modern popular fiction and offered an enjoyable read with a little excitement. We have fantastical stories, science fiction, humorous ones, and a little horror for good measure.

"Second, I think the name pulp is representative of new forays into easily accessible and cheaply produced fiction. I remember the first time I looked at the prices set by large publishing houses for their ebooks. It was astounding to see such large prices for downloads when I could go and pay the same price, but receive it in print."

From the back cover:

A collection of original fiction that takes you through the air-pirate filled skies of Over the Sahara, to the brink of madness with A Remarkable Picture, and into the atompunk stars with The Hotel Ceres.

Journey into the heart of temptation in Devil Does Dallas, to the wildly weird west in A Knight Templar in Lincoln County, and to the edge of man's tenuous grasp of reality in Intruders on Geer Bluff. Plus many more!

Editorial Reviews

Las Vegas Review Journal
Each story in the collection is short enough to be enjoyed in a quick moment or two of reading, and all are lively, quick-paced and guaranteed to hold the reader’s attention. (It should be kept in mind that these stories are not for the faint of heart and are for adults in regards to language.)

Representing the revival of pulp fiction interest, “Pulp!” is one of the best examples of 21st century pulp yet to be found.

    Fun Concept, stories vary-- 2.5 stars

    I considered writing mini reviews for each of the stories in the book, but decided too many of them would say the same thing. So I'll make some generalizations. Although the stories were all authored by different people, many of them had a really similar feel. In fact, for the first handful of stories, I felt like it was the same author. I'm not sure if this was a reflection on the choice of authors or on the editing process. The premise of each story was certainly different, but most of the stories had an unpolished and unfinished feel to me. I think short stories have to be somewhat succinct and focused to make their point, and strong endings are paramount. Readers want that short story to make an imprint and leave them with a taste in their mouths they can't shake until long after they've finished the story. I felt like I finished too many of these stories thinking "so?" or "it's over?" and then couldn't remember specifics when I began to write this review. It wasn't that they weren't interesting-most of them were- it was that they didn't leave me with anything at the end, and some of them took such a meandering road to the end that I lost the point somewhere along the way. I wanted to be blown away by the package, but I wasn't.

    I love the idea behind this type of anthology, and I hope the next one in the series includes stories with a stronger bite. I enjoyed reading most of the stories, but none of them truly left me wanting more. While each had an original premise that had a ton of potential, I felt the actual execution was lacking. When rating the individual stories, they ranged from 2 stars to 3 stars, so that leaves me with:

    2.5 /5 stars (full review at MotherLode blog)

    I like the idea

    I love the concept. Didn't enjoy all the stories. Being an indie publisher, they get three stars.

    I will read the next one.

    Meh

    I agree with the other review. Stories vary. Three stars for effort.
