Submissions Open!

As of today, Boric G of the Dwarven Stronghold, Ken Harrison of The Rusty Battle Axe, Sean Robson of Tales from the Flaming Faggot and myself have formed Pulp Mill Press.

We are announcing that Pulp Mill Press is putting a fiction anthology together, short stories in the tradition of Appendix N, called Libram Mysterum.

We are looking for short stories with interesting characters and innovative plots.  If you are interested in submitting a story please read the guidelines first.  While all of us are very excited about the project, it is a lot of work, and following the guidelines will help streamline the process.

If you have any questions you can contact any one of us or email Pulp Mill Press at pulpmillpress4@gmail.com.

That's my official announcement.  On a more personal note this project came about on a whim, a wanting for more fiction like I used to read as a kid.  Today's fantasy fiction isn't something that speaks to me.  I used to eat my old fantasy books as soon as I bought them.  Today I'm lucky if I can get through the first chapter or two.  I'm not saying the fiction is bad, it just isn't for me.  This is a chance to get a large group of similar, well read individuals to produce new work based on a tradition that got us into gaming or inspired our gaming.   A real homage to Appendix N.

But this project couldn't have gone forward without the excitement of others and their willingness to do the work.  I'm hoping all the writers out there will submit a story or two.  We aren't sure how many stories will be in this volume, I'm guessing around fifteen.  And if you do have any question please just drop any one of us a line or all of us at pulpmillpress4@gmail.com.

We are waiting for your story.
