On Feb. 28, we released the first issue of Pulphouse Fiction Magazine, Year Two (that’s Issue #5, for the record). It’s the Winter Issue for this quarterly magazine edited by Dean Wesley Smith, and like all Pulphouse issues, it has some spectacularly creative stories.
Of particular note is Robert Jeschonek’s story, “Offensive in Every Possible Way.” This one was hell on our staff because we had to figure out how to format (and we had different issues in the epub and paperback versions) it while still maintaining the author’s voice (which takes Planet Bob to a whole new level). But the story is consummately Pulphouse. It’s a unique (and I don’t use that word lightly) must-read.
So, now that I have you intrigued about Bob’s story, check out the entire fantastic table of contents:
