We had a wonderful visit with our own Dean Wesley Smith last week as we did some business strategizing and also planning for the next Pulphouse Fiction Magazine Kickstarter, which launches this week. Last week also saw the publication of five new books: three that youve heard about and two new ones of the Pulphouse variety.
First up, the ones you knew were coming: Killing the Angel of Death by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Luck Be Ladies: A Poker Boy Collection by Dean Wesley Smith, and Fiction River Presents: Sorcery & Steam, edited by Gwyneth Gibby, are all available in ebook from your favorite retailer. The paperback volumes will be available soon. Click on each title above for more details and purchase information.
And now, more on Pulphouse. It was great timing to have Dean here for such a busy Pulphouse week, since he is, of course, the editor and driving force behind that magazine. If youve ever met Dean, you know that his personality very much reflects the tone of Pulphouse. His visits are always a little off-the-wall but a whole lot of fun.
One of the books released last week was the summer issue of Pulphouse (#7 if youre counting). The second is the first all-original book in the Pulphouse line, called Snot-Nosed Aliens. Here are the details on each of those:
A three-time Hugo Award nominated magazine, this issue of Pulphouse Fiction Magazine offers up eighteen fantastic stories by some of the best writers working in modern short fiction. No genre limitations, no topic limitations, just great stories. Attitude, feel, and high-quality fiction equals Pulphouse.

When you ask a bunch of professional writers to send in stories to a Pulphouse Fiction Magazine anthology called Snot-Nosed Aliens, you get a bunch of really, really strange stories. Perfect.
Known for high-quality fiction and off-the-wall stories, Pulphouse Fiction Magazines first fully original anthology delivers both. Head-shaking laughter, biting themes, and more out-of-this-world aliens than should be allowed.
Thirteen professional writers. Thirteen wonderful stories. An original anthology impossible to put down.
