This Publishers Note marks the fifth year of my weekly blogs. Thats 260 regular blogs. Now, thats not quite as long as Ive been at the helm of WMGthe blogs came a bit laterbut it reminds me of how much history I have here now.
History is a funny thing. It has a habit of repeating itself.
So, five years into my tenure, weve decide to bring back a publication dormant for more than twenty years. The three-time Hugo Award-nominated Pulphouse Fiction Magazine.
Pulphouse adds a different flavor to our magazine line. Fiction River is purely original short fiction and varies in tone by the editor of each volume, but its voice is influenced by the collaborative oversight of series editors Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch. Fiction River Presents is the reprint line for Fiction River that I edit, and is sourced primarily from Fiction River volumes (with an occasional grab from the WMG inventory). Smiths Monthly is basically whatever Dean wants it to be because its all his own fiction. Short stories, novels, nonfiction: Its all in there.
Dean will also edit Pulphouse, but the tone here will be pure attitude. If youve read the original incarnation of the magazine, youll understand what Im talking about. If you havent, youre in for a ride.
And if you dont want to wait very long for that ride to begin, youre in luck. Weve just launched a Kickstarter to gain subscriptions for Pulphouse, and you can get in on the ground floor with the Kickstarter exclusive Issue Zero.
Theres tons of great rewards, more information about the magazine, and a really fun video to watch. So, stop reading this blog and head on over to Kickstarter.
Ill be back next week like clockwork.
