I’ve got a busy week ahead. First off, I’m in Las Vegas (in the record heat) managing logistics for the Fantasy/Thriller Craft Workshop that Kristine Kathryn Rusch is teaching. I love being on site for these workshops and seeing our writers in person. They’re so much fun! (I mean, hard work, too, but fun!) If you’re a writer, you should consider coming one of these days. You can learn more about them here.

Nola is here with me this time because she’s taking a theater summer camp at the Smith Center this week. So, that’s very cool, too! Las Vegas has a lot of resources that we, obviously, don’t have in little Lincoln City, Oregon, so the fact that this camp coincided with our workshop seemed like it was meant to be.

And while we’re here in Vegas, we are launching our next Pulphouse Fiction Magazine Subscription Drive on Kickstarter.

So much going on!

We have some very cool new stuff in this Kickstarter, including, for the first time, Pulphouse merchandise!

Reward options will include a mug and a pillow featuring the Pulphouse mascot Thumper as well as a calendar featuring some of our favorite cartoons from the pages of Pulphouse.

Here are pics by way of a preview:

Every reward comes with a six-month (six-issue) subscription to Pulphouse Fiction Magazine, as well (existing subscribers can have six issues added to their remaining subscription), so you can see what all the buzz is about. We’re also debuting our new 6×9 trade paperback format!

The Kickstarter launches at noon on Tuesday, but you can sign up here to be notified as soon as it does.

From Thumper to cartoons to tons of cutting-edge short stories, there’s so much to love with Pulphouse!
